|“||This region is dominated by wind blasted and arid tunnels reaching dozens of miles below ground. The particular composition of the surrounding rock means practically no moisture, resulting in one of the driest regions of the planet. With water being so precious, the inhabiting wildlife is particularly aggressive, ravenous for whatever fluids reside within their prey.||„|
|~ Ingame description|
The Sandblasted Corridors are one of the biomes of Hoxxes IV, located in the north-east of the planet. The walls are made of a soft, sandstone-like rock which is mined easily. However, the caverns are very empty, containing giant fossilised bones and barely any vegetation whatsoever. The caves are wasted by strong winds, either from forceful windy tunnels or visibility-reducing sandstorms.
Hazards[edit | edit source]
There are a few biome specific hazards in the Sandblasted Corridors. One are the wind tunnels, holes in the walls which periodically blast heavy gusts of wind from them, launching any dwarf unfortunate enough to be in their path away with great force.
Another hazard are the sandstorms, which occasionally blow through the caverns. These do not damage the dwarves, but force them to move at 70% speed for the duration of the storm. The sand and dust will also greatly reduce visibility to a mere few meters in front of them. Enemies are unaffected, making sandstorms potentially extremely dangerous.
Finally, there is the Deeptora Honeycomb, which contains hostile insect swarms. Once approached, the bugs will swarm the dwarves and attack them. The swarms can be damaged by fire or explosives; the honeycomb itself can also be destroyed, at which point the swarms will dissipate.
Enemies[edit | edit source]
Nayaka Trawler can be found in this region, an enemy which burrows itself in the sand.
Biome Features[edit | edit source]
The Sandblasted Corridors have essentially no vegetation whatsoever, although you may come across an occasional dead tree.
Ores[edit | edit source]
As with every biome, some of the ores that can be found in the Sandblasted Corridors are determined by the mission type, such as Morkite. The crafting materials found in the Crystalline Caverns are Enor Pearl and Magnite, with Enor Pearl being abundant and Magnite being scarce.
