An Ancient Pseudoscience Station (or Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station) is a Crafting Structure found only in the Ruins. It gives access to the Ancient Crafting Tab, but is usually found in its "Broken" state, which offers only seven (7) of the fourteen (14) Crafting recipes. Both versions of the Ancient Pseudoscience Station can be damaged and destroyed by either the player (when using a Hammer) or by a Damaged Rook (after ramming into it), causing it to drop loot or spawn enemies. A Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station can also be repaired using Thulecite or Thulecite Fragments.

A Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station will be completely destroyed after 2 hits from a Hammer (if it hasn't already been damaged by a Rook or the player). A fully repaired Ancient Pseudoscience Station will be completely destroyed after 10 hits from a Hammer. When struck with a Hammer, lightning will strike the player and the Ancient Pseudoscience Station will either drop loot or spawn enemies. Building a Lightning Rod nearby will divert the lightning.

A Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station can be repaired with a total of 32 Thulecite Fragments. Thulecite can also be used to repair and will count as 6 fragments. A fully repaired station offers all 14 Ancient crafting recipes. It is possible to keep destroying/repairing a station for the purpose of farming items, but enemies have a much higher chance to spawn than any of the loot. Damaging Ancient Pseudoscience Stations is a great way to acquire all types of Gravedigger Trinkets.

Being near either type of Ancient Pseudoscience Station will cause it to light up, protecting the player from being attacked by Charlie. During the Nightmare Phase of the Nightmare Cycle, the gems on a fully repaired Ancient Pseudoscience Station will glow red (the broken version is missing the gems).

In Don't Starve Together, killing the Ancient Fuelweaver will cause all the Broken and Repaired Ancient Pseudoscience Stations to respawn. Additionally, destroying the Ancient Pseudoscience Station with a Hammer will not cause a lightning to strike. Broken Pseudoscience Stations require 36 Thulecite Fragments or 6 Thulecite to repair.
