Old Medicine is a common item used to print/craft consumables such as Strong and Combat Stims to help recover health in The Cycle: Frontier.
They only fetch 150 K-Marks and are therefore not worth selling. You will need a lot of Stims to survive against high level enemies in high level areas. That’s reason enough to keep as much ancient medicine as you can find.
Old Medicine is also an item assigned to the Osiris faction. You can get 2 faction points for each looted item.
The following guide will mark all the locations where you can find Old Medicine in The Cycle: Frontier.
The cycle: places of ancient medicine on the border
Ancient medicine is commonly found in medical cases in all level areas. Starting level 1 medical cases have the highest spawn chance of 50%. Spawn chance continues to drop as you venture into higher level areas.
Old Bright Sands Medicine Locations
Waterfall Lab to the northeast is a great farming site for Old Medicine. You will find an abundance of medical cases here.
You can also head to the Vaccine Labs east of the map for another transport. The jungle camp in the fast west and the forest areas north of the crashed ship are also good places to farm Old Medicine.
Ancient Crescent Falls Medicine Locations
The immediate forest area north of Greens Prospect is a good place to start looking for Old Medicine. Pinnacle Labs in the northeast corner of the map is probably the best place in Crescent Falls to loot Old Medicine.
Additionally, you can also head to Favela in the south. Other named POIs also have a chance to have the item. Old Medicine is pretty much scattered all over the map, but in small amounts.
