|“||At DEEP ROCK GALACTIC, we pride ourselves on having obtained practical dominance of the most lucrative belts of the Outer Rim. While our foolish and cowardly competitors generally regard these systems as too volatile or high-risk, to us they are home.
At this time, we have a total of 87 ORBITAL SPACE RIGS in operation throughout more than a dozen Outer Rim systems, with 16 more currently under construction.

The Space Rig is one of 87 orbital operation bases and drop pod deployment stations owned by the Deep Rock Galactic corporation.
It currently features the Mission Terminal, the Drop Pod, Abyss bar and 4 "Bay" rooms where the dwarves sleep between each mission, and where players load in when starting the game. In these rooms players can search for Quickplay games and change their class. The dwarves currently live in Space Rig 17.
Description[edit | edit source]
|Space rig interior|
When you leave your Bay, you will find yourself in a large open hangar. On the ground floor you'll find The Mission Terminal with a large green hologram of the planet below, the drop pod, the Upgrade Terminal, Vanity Shop (For cosmetics), the 'Change Looks' terminal, a Launch Tutorial terminal, a Mineral Trading terminal, the Abyss Bar, three elevators, and the Medbay, located between the cabins, opposite the Drop Pod.
Taking the elevators up to the middle floor, you will find four more hallways, only two of which are open. The opened ones are labeled 'Top Hangar' and 'Memorial hall'. The closed hallways are labeled 'Shooting Range' and 'Mission Control'. There's also a curious hole in the ceiling of this room. Taking the elevator in the 'Top Hangar' section will lead you to a restricted area where the previously green tunnel has been mysteriously sealed off.
At the top of the elevator located next to the Abyss Bar, on the left hand side, is a gravity calibration button. Once pressed, it causes all players and barrels to be sent upwards towards the roof and set into a slow motion low gravity fall. This is a useful method for going through a certain hole in the ceiling. In addition, there are 25 barrels you can kick around, including one green barrel. Certain barrel related actions will prompt special messages from Mission Control.
Areas[edit | edit source]
Ground Floor[edit | edit source]
Abyss Bar[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Abyss Bar
The Abyss Bar is a big section on the Ground Floor of the Space Rig. Here you can have a drink with your fellow dwarves, dance to the sounds of a jukebox or take rounds trying to hit a moving incinerator with barrels.
Medbay[edit | edit source]
The medbay is a small room located between each of the four cabins. It contains two hovering All-purpose drones and four cryo sleep chambers. You will respawn in this room with your teammates if you fail a mission or if you become intoxicated at the Abyss Bar by drinking too much, as this will result in the player passing out, but only if the player is not accompanied by other teamates in the lobby who can revive them if this were to happen.

The Memorial Hall is a large room located in the upper area of the Space Rig, dedicated to the fallen dwarves who died for Deep Rock Galactic. The room contains a scrolling screen containing the names of the Closed Alpha testers, and giant statues of the M.U.L.E and each dwarf.
Hidden Tunnel[edit | edit source]
A small hidden tunnel is hidden in the ceiling close to the entrance of the Memorial Hall, and is only accessible by using the Gravity Recalibration button above the Abyss Bar. In the tunnel you will find a short jumping puzzle, and a message from Robert Friis, the art director at Ghost Ship Games.
|“||Nothing here yet! But I'm very proud of you. - Rob||„|

The hidden tunnel used to be located above the Top Hangar, It has since been replaced with the new tunnel.
