Catalytic powder is an item used in the Flash Powder Factory. It is an ingredient in making flash powder - it should be used along with a full pressure flask (a) and a full pressure flask (b) at a mixer machine to make the flash powder. The machines will be marked with dark red arrows on the map once all three ingredients are in the inventory.
Players will start the game with six catalytic powder, although more can be obtained at the catalyst machine in the centre of the arena. By wearing the factory trousers, the player will obtain three extra at the start, while wearing the full rogue outfit will grant nine extra.
