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 the crafting resources below.
Primary Objectives[edit | edit source]
These items are required in order to finish the current mission.
Alien Egg[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Alien Egg
Alien Eggs are mysterious, yellow eggs with pink, veiny ridges found in walls, similar to large resources such as Aquarq. They are marked by pulsating red/purple orbs and organic "tubes" on the wall. They must be found and deposited 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 4, 6 or 8 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.
Aquarq[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Aquarq
Encountered solely in Point Extraction as the primary objective, Aquarq takes the form of large blue crystals embedded in the rock. It can be located via smaller blue crystal formations on the surface, as well as a faint blue glow if they're near the surface.
Morkite[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Morkite
A dark cyan-blue mineral found in wall surface veins, Morkite is the primary Mining Expedition objective, and only appears during these missions. The party will typically have to mine between 200 and 400 Morkite, depending on mission length and complexity. Once the quota has been filled, the M.U.L.E. will enable the recall function.
Loose Morkite takes a roughly cuboid shape.

Dystrum[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Dystrum
A blue-tinted metallic mineral found in wall surface veins, Dystrum is a secondary objective resource exclusive to Point Extraction missions. It is not as bright as other minerals when light shines on it, so you may have to make a few passes to find it all.

It is quite rare, only spawning with a 1/21 chance.
Gold[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Gold
A lustrous metal found in wall surface veins and embedded into the terrain as massive chunks, Gold's primary function is to provide a boost to credits earned when extracted. Wall veins are usually easy to spot, but massive chunks can be found embedded into the rock. Look for flakes of gold on the walls and floor to find them. Each chunk is worth 150-250 units of gold.
Gold chunks have a 1/3 chance to spawn.

Loose Nitra takes a roughly tetrahedral shape.
Red Sugar[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Red Sugar
Red Sugar takes the form of bright red crystal and glowing formations scattered throughout the caves. It's vital to your survival, as Red Sugar is the only way to recover lost health besides calling for a Supply Pod (which costs Nitra) or using the Vampire perk.
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. It has a 1/26 chance to appear.
This 'mineral' (though it might better be described as an artifact) can be located by the presence of bright gray and glowing 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.
Upon mission completion, the error cube will award 2000 experience.
