Hard drives themselves can be found at Crash sites and then can be researched with the help of MAM. Once you do this, you will get the 3 alternate blueprints options to choose from. Another thing to keep in mind is that the set of blueprints you get to choose from will be random and all alternate recipes can be only used in factory buildings.

Now, you have a tier list to follow so that you can perfectly optimize your alternative recipes in Satisfactory. If this guide helped you and then please check out our other guides on Chained Echoes full walkthrough, guides, tips and tricks, and Factorio solar panel ratio guide.
