Among the deepest of our mining sites, the Magma Caves are a mellow 250-400 degrees and helpfully lit by the churning, molten innards of the planet. We advise that you do not touch anything not mandated by the mission objectives, as your employee insurance does not cover burns.
~ Ingame description

The Magma Core is one of the biomes of Hoxxes IV, located close to the core of Hoxxes IV. It lies deep beneath the surface, closest to the core of Hoxxes IV; resulting in many obstacles being related to fire and/or magma. The rock forming the caves is sturdy, meaning it takes 3 hits to destroy it.

Hazards[edit | edit source]

The Magma Core is arguably one of the most dangerous biomes of all, as the hazards there are numerous.

The most common and prominent hazard is the magma rock, which can cover much of the floors of caverns. When stepped on, it will cause burning damage periodically. Additionally, more Magma rock is created when explosions destroy the natural rock of the terrain, leaving more hazardous floor in their wake.

Another hazard are lava geysers which erupt fire at regular intervals, using an axe against a Lava Geyser will instantly destroy both the dwarf and the geyser but can be useful to clear pesky burners. An eruption announces itself with a rumbling noise.

Occasionally, the entire cave shakes violently in an earthquake, dramatically slowing all dwarves movement speed to a crawl. The earthquake may crack the ground open, exposing large crevices of Magma Rock.

The Magma Core also has Explosive Plants, which explode violently when sufficiently damaged. These explosions are able to trigger other nearby plants, which can then cause a deadly chain-reaction. These however are not entirely unique to the Magma Core, as the same or similar explosive plants are located in other biomes.

Enemies[edit | edit source]

All enemies can be encountered in the Magma Core, including Spitball Infectors, Cave Leeches and Glyphid Dreadnoughts, which can be encountered in Elimination missions, like in every other biome.

Biome Features[edit | edit source]

Item Type Description
Functional

Exploding Plant
Hazardous/Supportive Glowing plants of varying size that explode violently when damaged. The larger the plant, the less damage needed to detonate it and the larger the explosion.
BF Lava Geyser.png
Lava Geyser
Hazardous Rocky geysers which periodically spit out lava upward and burns anyone near it or directly in contact with it. Once destroyed they will explode violently, dealing large amounts of damage to any enemy or dwarf in the vicinity.
BF Hot Rock.png
Hot Rock
Hazardous Hot rock which deals damage to any dwarf and glyphid stepping on it. It can be found in large patches on the floor, but also appears from explosive damage made to the ground.
BF Earthquake.png
Earthquake
Hazardous The cave violently shakes, slowing down the dwarves movement. It can also create lava crevasses around the dwarves. Earthquake interval is unpredictable.

Ores[edit | edit source]

As with every biome, some of the ores which can be found in the Magma Core are determined by the mission type, such as Morkite, Aquarq or Hollomite. The crafting materials found in the Magma Core are Magnite Magnite and Croppa Croppa, with Magnite being abundant and Croppa being scarce.
