|Objective(s)||Collect 200-400 Morkite|
Mining Expedition is a mission type in Deep Rock Galactic.
A nearly identical tutorial version of Mining Expedition exists called Work Instructions which features the same caves each playthrough (although tunnels connecting the caves and resource placement is still randomized) and with a set Morkite quota of 100 (secondary objectives and crafting resources do not appear). It can be accessed via the Launch Tutorial button in the Getting Started section of the Miner's Manual.
Mining Expeditions are unlocked from the start, and are the first mission type available to new Miners.
About[edit | edit source]
The goal of a Mining Expedition mission is to collect a certain quantity of a shiny, dark blue resource named Morkite. Morkite is exclusive to Mining Expedition missions. It glimmers in the darkness, making it easy to find, even in the largest of caverns. Once mined, the Morkite must be deposited into the M.U.L.E for it to count towards the quota.
While you must complete your primary objective to finish the mission, You can choose to collect an optional secondary objective resource for a Credit bonus upon mission completion.
After the primary objective is completed, a red button will light up on the MULE to begin the extraction phase. Once pressed the Drop Pod will be called in to pick up the MULE and any surviving miners. It will wait for 5 minutes before departing, though the door will only open once the MULE has been secured, or at 15 seconds if by any reason the MULE can not reach the pod.
Cave[edit | edit source]
Mining Expedition caves are characterized by linear series of connected caves separated by dirt walls between them with a "treasure room" full of resources at the end. The treasure room features an abundance of rare Crafting Resources and Gold, encouraging players to reach the end of the mission. During extraction, the Drop Pod will usually land far away, at the other end of the cave to the miners, making a hectic and intense escape through the long and linear caverns.
