Ores are a type of minable resource in Deep Rock Galactic. There are numerous different Ores scattered across the caverns of Hoxxes IV, some of which are required to unlock upgrades, while others are mission-related.

Mission-Related[edit | edit source]

These resources are required to complete primary and/or secondary objectives. They are not added to your gathered resources at the end of a mission, unlike crafting resources below.

Primary Objectives[edit | edit source]

These are required to be collected in order to finish the current mission.

Main article: Alien Egg

Alien Eggs are mysterious, yellow eggs with pink ridges found in walls, similar to large resources such as Aquarq. Marked by pulsating red orbs on the wall. They must be found and desposited in order to complete the primary objective during Egg Hunt mission types. Depending on the length of the mission, the team will have to collect either 5, 7 or 10 eggs in total to complete the primary objective. Alien eggs are always found embedded within dull, fleshy Organic Material and appear as yellowish spheroids on the Terrain Scanner.

Unknown artifact icon.png ERR://23¤Y%/[edit | edit source]

Main article: Error Cube

A strange black rubik's cube-esque object with pulsating white grooves. It is a very rare resource that is not listed on any biome, and its uses are currently unknown.

This 'mineral' (though it might better be described as an artifact) can be located by the presence of bright gray spikes on the surrounding rock. These spikes seem to pulse with energy, though once the artifact has been removed from the deposit the spikes fade to dull, lifeless grey.

When examined, the characters will comment on its bizarre nature and strange appearance.
