Tungsten Ore is added to world generation by RedPower 2. In conjunction with GregTech 4, it can be used to produce Tungsten Ingots and Wolframium Cells. It generates on layers 1 to 16 with up to 4 blocks per vein and is relatively rare, only attempting to generate a single ore vein per chunk.

Tungsten Ore has no use in RedPower itself yet and has only been added for future use. Other mods, such as GregTech, may use it via the Ore Dictionary though.

It is easy to confuse Tungsten Ore with Coal Ore due to their similar appearance. Compared to Coal Ore, Tungsten Ore is darker and has a higher contrast.
