The Underwater Metal Extractor is a level 1 naval structure introduced in The Core Contingency that is available to both CORE and ARM. Similar to its land counterpart, the Underwater Metal Extractor generates a given amount of metal when built on top of an underwater metal deposit, which ranges from +0.8 to +2.0 on non-Core Prime maps depending on the size of the deposit and on condition that the extractor covers the whole deposit, and a static +2.3 on a Core Prime map regardless of where the extractor is built; however, unlike its land counterpart, an Underwater Metal Extractor only consumes -2 energy instead of -3 while it is operational, but is substantially more expensive and time consuming to build.

Unlike the generally flimsy and easy to target land Metal Extractor, Underwater Metal Extractors are able to take twice the amount of punishment and can avoid most units' line of sight and weapons fire by virtue of being submerged, requiring a unit with sonar capabilities to make them visible and units with either depth charges or torpedoes to attack them, though manual radar targeting can also be used alongside torpedo bombers to target and destroy them. Despite the Underwater Metal Extractor being introduced in an expansion, none of the original Total Annihilation maps were updated to have underwater metal deposits placed in them, rendering the unit useless on any original map that isn't a Core Prime map.
