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.

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 and Croppa, with Magnite being abundant and Croppa being scarce.
