|“||No Refunds! No Refills! No Regrets!||„|
|~ Abyss Bar Slogan|
The Abyss Bar is a large section on the main floor of the Space Rig. Here you can have a drink with your fellow dwarves, dance to the tunes on the jukebox or take rounds trying to hit a moving incinerator with barrels.
The Bar[edit | edit source]
At the Bar, you can order a drink from the robot bartender Lloyd. A price list is visible on the top right corner of the bar and when talking to Lloyd.
Starting from Rank 3, players are able to purchase Beers from the Abyss Bar. Depending on the potency of the drink and how many are consumed, the player's character may become intoxicated. The effects of intoxication include borders of the screen becoming a wavy double-image, the player's view will wobble around randomly and the player's character will move in random directions of their own accord. These effects will become more extreme if the player drinks more Beer, and if too much Beer is consumed in a short amount of time, the player's character will pass out drunk. If alone the player will respawn in the Infirmary, though if other players are present they will need to be revived - similar to losing all of one's health in a Mission. Either way, the player will wake up sober.
Players who suffer motion sickness are advised to avoid drinking too much, as the effects of being drunk can cause dizziness and nausea. Make sure to drink Leaf Lover's Special to "cure" the effects of intoxication.
Lloyd[edit | edit source]
Lloyd the robotic bartender seems to be an all-purpose drone, similar to Bosco. However he wears a hat and bow tie, as well as being connected to what seems to be barrels of Ale in the ceiling. He can dispense drinks from his arms to serve the player if they order a drink from the bar.
By approaching and interacting with Lloyd, he projects a list of the available drinks with descriptions and price tags for you to order from. Upon ordering, as many tankards as there are players in your lobby will emerge, quickly being filled by Lloyd. Then each player can grab a tankard, give a salute and drink.
If the player cannot afford, or hasn't reached the rank requirement to purchase a drink, Lloyd will deny them service by shaking its chassis/head.
Available drinks[edit | edit source]
"Management reminds all employees that contrary to common belief the available drinks do intoxicate dwarves, do have influence on their ability to walk straight and do possess the potential to knock them out."
Corporate Issue[edit | edit source]
These drinks are always available.
Today's Special[edit | edit source]
These 8 drinks provide the dwarves with a buff once consumed. Only one of them is sold at a time, the special drink changes upon mission rotation and buffs can't be stacked.
Carry Movement Speed
|Strong||An invigorating and foamy brew, putting pep and zest in any true-blooded dwarf's blood!|
|Regular||The original DRG-approved brew. Bitter and heady, though not so strong as to incapacitate the workforce.|
|Pots O' Gold||
|Regular||Pots O' Gold - otherwise known as "Liquid Luck" - has been known to instill any red-blooded dwarf with sharply enhanced senses and an impressive lust for sweet, sweet gold...gold...GOLD! Riches surely await anyone lucky enough partake of this elusive brew.|
|Red Rock Blaster||
|Light||When you absolutely, positively got to kill everything in your path, accept no substitutes. Equal parts prime aged stout, habanero sauce, and military-grade combat stim, the Red Rock Blaster will make you see RED!|
|Rocky Mountain||Pickaxe Hit per Terrain||Regular||A touch of class. A thinker's drink. Quaffing this heady brew imparts an awesome sense of oneness with the rock around you, letting you carve through it like butter.|
|Skull Crusher Ale||
Base Pickaxe Damage
|Regular||The cosmic fury of a thousand raging suns course through this midnight-black, glistening concoction. People ask why we remember Karl. People ask what made him a legend. Rumor has it Skull Crusher Ale is at least partly to blame. Make of that what you will. Beware.|
Pickaxe Power Attack Cooldown
|Strong||A rare and much desired brew. Continuing the millennia-old tradition, this heady ale was imbibed by the strongest, most fiercest, most absolutely rabid dwarves of old before heading into glorious battle seeking an honorable end. Not for the faint of heart.|
Fall Damage (additive)
|Safe For Work||The Smoothest of brews, known to instill such confidence and grace into even the clumsiest dwarf as to make any sober dwarf blanch. Be warmed: Overconfidence is not covered by the company insurance.|
Strategies[edit | edit source]
- It might be worth checking the Abyss Bar to see what special is on offer before heading to the Mission Terminal; some Specials provide niche effects which benefit certain missions more than others.
- For example Backbreaker Stout is only really effective on Point Extraction and Egg Hunt missions, whereas Dark Morkite is obviously meant for Mining Expedition levels.
- If Pots O' Gold is available, consider checking to see if any missions have the Gold Rush mutator; the combination of these two events can result in over a thousand Gold being extracted in one mission, resulting in a huge payout.
- Note: The effect only applies to gold mined with a pickaxe. Gold detached from the walls by Bosco, environmental effects or with a weapon will not be doubled.
- Rocky Mountain is helpful to drink when doing Missions in Biomes where the common rock takes three pickaxe hits to destroy, such as the Crystalline Caverns or the Radioactive Exclusion Zone. It isn't very useful in the Sandblasted Corridors, where terrain already takes just one hit to destroy.
- Rocky Mountain will not reduce the amount of hits needed to destroy unique terrain such as the Granite Towers in the Sandblasted Corridors. This is likely a bug.
- Drinks such as Red Rock Blaster and Slayer Stout are excellent Specials to drink in preparation for a Deep Dive, as their generalist effects will remain useful in all stages and potential Mutators.
- If you have a surplus of Barley Bulbs, consider being the gentledwarf of the team and buy a round of Specials for you and your team before a mission begins.
Craft(able) Beer[edit | edit source]
These 13 beers provide fun interactions and effects only in the Space Rig. Before they can be purchased, you will need to pay a sum of credits and Beer Hops to upgrade your beer licence. Each beer comes in its own unique cup.
|Label||Mug||Name||Effect||Price||Potency||Beer License Cost / Description|
|Arkenstout||A harsh blizzard freezes the player, encasing them in ice.||Safe For Work||Beer License Cost: Rank 5, 350 Credits, 5 Yeast Cone, 22 Malt Star, 3 Starch Nut
An ancient recipe going back millenia, tasting of honor, gold, and glory days of yore. Served best chilled to near absolute zero.
|Blacklock Lager||The player experiences nightmarish hallucinations of ghosts.||Epic||Beer License Cost: Rank 11, 1000 Credits, 12 Yeast Cone, 7 Malt Star, 31 Starch Nut
An ominous concoction, so thick and black that you'd think it was taken from the very core of Hoxxes itself. Any rumors around psychotic episodes and hallucinations connected to this brew is purely anecdotal. Or so they say...
|Blackout Stout||Increases drunkenness to max, causing the player to pass out.||Legendary||Beer License Cost: Rank 5, 250 Credits, 4 Yeast Cone, 4 Malt Star, 12 Starch Nut
Renowned through space and time, a tankard of Blackout is enough to knock out almost anyone. A true test for the true drunkard.
|Blackreach Blonde||The player receives the Jukebox effect and starts dancing.||Regular||Beer License Cost: Rank 8, 500 Credits, 23 Yeast Cone, 10 Malt Star, 7 Starch Nut
The party-goer's choice. Charming, fizzy, and fruity, the Blackreach Blonde is known to put a smile on anyone's face.
|Burning Love||The player catches on fire.||Regular||Beer License Cost: Rank 8, 750 Credits, 6 Yeast Cone, 28 Malt Star, 6 Starch Nut
What's cooking? Why, YOU, are! The Burning Love is famous for its' powerful taste and utter disregard for the Scoville Scale. Ingest at your own risk.
|Flintlocke's Delight||Explosions occur around the player, propelling them in random directions.||Strong||Beer License Cost: Rank 5, 350 Credits, 14 Yeast Cone, 5 Malt Star, 11 Starch Nut
How does it work? Eldritch magic? Genetic tampering? Nobody knows! Suffice to say, Flintlocke's Delight is a favorite of demolitionists everywhere. Also, it tastes great - if you got a love for gunpowder, anyway.
|Gut Wrecker||The player releases a loud burp, shaking their screen.||Epic||Beer License Cost: Rank 8, 500 Credits, 7 Yeast Cone, 21 Malt Star, 12 Starch Nut
Equal parts carbon dioxide, nitric acid, and maple syrup, the Gut Wrecker is a peculiar but exceptionally tasty brew - if you manage to keep it down, that is. Has been known to be quite fizzy.
|Mactera Brew||Player releases a loud fart, creating a green cloud around them.||Epic||Beer License Cost: Rank 20, 1500 Credits, 15 Yeast Cone, 10 Malt Star, 55 Starch Nut
A delightful, tangy brew. In accordance with DRG's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"-guidelines, the Mactera Brew quickly rose to prominence among the crew - as long as everyone agreed not to discuss the ingredients...
|Malt Rockbearer||The player grows in size.||Strong||Beer License Cost: Rank 11, 750 Credits, 30 Yeast Cone, 10 Malt Star, 10 Starch Nut
A classic, malty brew with a distinctive tangy aftertaste, the Rockbearer is known to be behind many great dwarven feats. Be advised: Management will not reimburse any amounts of clothes torn or vocal chords ruptured as a result of enjoying this drink.
|Seasoned Moonrider||The player receives low gravity, and gains an upward boost in momentum.||Safe For Work||Beer License Cost: Rank 14, 1000 Credits, 10 Yeast Cone, 15 Malt Star, 35 Starch Nut
Malthly and sweet, the Seasoned Moonrider is a distinguished brew that's sure to put a kick in your step.
|Smart Stout||The player becomes temporarily intelligent and talks like a scientist.||Strong||Beer License Cost: Rank 23, 1500 Credits, 7 Yeast Cone, 17 Malt Star, 37 Starch Nut
While most drinking has a tendency to slow you down, Smart Stout stands out by doing the opposite. Imbibe enough of this rich, golden nectar and you'll be solving complex orbital insertion equations faster than you can say "This drink, I like it! Another!". How? It's said Science is involved. Somehow.
|Underhill Deluxe||The player shrinks in size.||Regular||Beer License Cost: Rank 5, 350 Credits, 17 Yeast Cone, 5 Malt Star, 8 Starch Nut
In a hole in the ground, there lived a brewer. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to drink; it was a brewery, and that means beer. This beer, in fact. And it is lovely.
|Wormhole Special||Teleports the player to a random location (either inside the Drop Pod or outside the Space Rig.)||Strong||Beer License Cost: Rank 17, 1500 Credits, 10 Yeast Cone, 20 Malt Star, 40 Starch Nut
There are some breweries out there that will go to any lengths to attract customers. There are dark rumors surrounding the Wormhole Special - dark and ominous as the blackness of space itself - but damn if it ain't tasty even so. Drink with caution and respect. Grasp your knees tightly and close your eyes. It'll be over soon.
Bonus Drink[edit | edit source]
Drinks that can only be ordered by owners of the Supporter Upgrade DLC.
|Strong||This version of the Glyphid Slammer is a drink only available to purchase by owners of the Supporter Upgrade of the game. It is functionally identical to the regular Glyphid Slammer, but comes in a golden tankard, and replaces the regular Glyphid Slammer in the bar.|
Potency[edit | edit source]
The potency of the drink will affect how many it takes to become intoxicated as well as how many drinks the player can handle before passing out. Each drink consumed will take up a percent of the player's alcohol tolerance, maximum effect is achieved upon reaching 100%, going over 100% will cause the player to pass out.
|Potency||Tolerance (% per drink/number to max effect)|
|Safe for Work||10% (10)|
- Drinks with legendary potency will always force the player to pass out and become sober upon waking up. However if drank during the last few seconds of mission deployment, the player will attain maximum intoxication for the mission.
The effects of intoxication slowly become worse and worse as the player's tolerance is used up. These effect happen roughly at these points:
|26-39||Slightly blurred vision|
|40-49||Player begins to stumble around|
|50-59||Stumbling worsens, double vision begins to creep towards central vision|
|60-69||Vision begins to notably sway|
|70-89||Staggering gradually gets worse|
|90-100||Random slurred speech begins. Staggering becomes more and more extreme. Vision fully blurred.|
|101%+||Erratic movement becomes sharp, player passes out shortly after.|
The Barrel Hoop[edit | edit source]
The Barrel Hoop mini-game is located at the back of the Abyss Bar.
Players stand behind a barrel which is dispensed from above, and attempt to kick the barrel into a moving hoop that incinerates barrels, beer mugs and dwarves that pass through it. Scores can be reset via the red button to the right of the game. The player will die if they jump into the incinerator hoop, only to respawn in the medbay afterwards. If the player dies while intoxicated, they will receive an achievement.
Scoring and point values[edit | edit source]
The game consists of four phases, with the first phase active while no barrels have been passed through the hoop.
Upon entry of a barrel, the game will allocate the appropriate points, and proceed to the next multiplier phase.
All phases above first phase remain active until the hoop 'bounces' back 3 times from the time of a barrel's entry into it.
If another barrel is passed through the hoop within the time limit, the game will progress to the next phase, capping out at Phase 4 where the point values are multiplied by 4.
If a barrel is not passed through the hoop within the time limit, or a shot is missed, the game is returned to phase 1.
|Item||Phase 1 (1x Modifier)||Phase 2 (2x Modifier)||Phase 3 (3x Modifier)||Phase 4 (4x Modifier)|
|Beer Mug||1 Point||2 Points||3 Points||4 Points|
|Normal Barrel||10 Points||20 Points||30 Points||40 Points|
|Green Barrel||10 Points||20 Points||30 Points||40 Points|
|Yellow Barrel||10 Points||20 points||30 Points||40 Points|
|Red Barrel||25 Points||50 Points||75 Points||100 Points|
|Forge Hammer||Hammer Time (No Score)|
|Forge Toolbox||No Score|
|Player||No score (but see Achievements)|
First phase has a 1x point modifier, Second phase 2x, Third phase 3x, and 4th phase 4x. Phases are indicated by the size of the text on the scoreboard located above the moving hoop, although the text size does not increase between phases 3 and 4.
Employee of the Month Screen[edit | edit source]
Just above and behind the Jukebox is the Employee of the Month Screen.
It shows the current name and profile picture of the Employee of the Month on the Deep Rock Galactic Discord, along with the Discord's current online and total users.
It also randomly shows one of 5 flavor texts;
- Managed to mine 10000 Nitra without using a pickaxe.
- Got a broken back after carrying the entire mission on the shoulders.
- Won a drinking contest against Bosco.
- Forgot to bring ammo to a mission. Highest kill count anyway.
- Secretly knows what the error cube is for. Won't tell anyone.
The Jukebox[edit | edit source]
The Jukebox contains a wide variety of songs from many different genres that are literally irresistible to dance to. Whenever a song is playing and you are within range, you cannot fight the urge to dance!
† - Songs with this mark are non-instrumental and contain vocals.
