|“||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.
|~ Deep Rock Galactic Corporation|
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, The Abyss Bar, the Medbay, the Wardrobe, the Personal Cabin, the Assignment Terminal, the Equipment Terminal, the Pickaxe Customization terminal, the Memorial Hall, the Drone Modification terminal, the Deep Dives terminal, The Forge, the Accessory Shop, and the Mineral Trading Station.
Players spawn in their respective Classes' Personal Cabins, and can use the various terminals to trade minerals, customize their pickaxe, select missions, order beer from The Abyss Bar, and more.
Description[edit | edit source]
When you leave your Personal Cabin, you will find yourself in a large, open hangar. On the ground floor you'll find the Mission terminal with a large hologram of the planet below, the Drop Pod, the Equipment terminal, the Drone Modification terminal, the Accessory Shop, the Wardrobe, a Launch Tutorial terminal, a Mineral Trading terminal, the Abyss Bar, The Forge and Deep Dives terminals, two elevators, and the Medbay, located between the cabins.
Taking the elevators up to the middle floor, you will find two more hallways, 'Top Hangar' and 'Memorial Hall'. 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.
A gravity calibration button is located above the Deep Dives terminal. Once pressed, it causes all players and other loose objects to be sent upwards towards the roof and set into a slow motion low gravity fall. 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]
Communal Area[edit | edit source]
The communal sector are where the dwarves spawn, inside the Cabins, who also include the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) Terminal where you can view your personal statistics, milestones, and purchase Perks. There are four terminals, one in each of the four player cabins. Each cabin is subtly decorated around the personality and attribute of each class.
With the Wardrobe you can equip and modify the appearance of your dwarves with the cosmetics that you bought in the The Shop or unlocked through the game.
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 are harmed in the Space Rig, either by jumping through the barrel hoop or by becoming intoxicated at the Abyss Bar.
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 the Promotion terminal, a scrolling screen containing the names of the Closed Alpha testers, and giant statues of the M.U.L.E and each dwarf.
Equipment Area[edit | edit source]
Mission Area[edit | edit source]
The Mission terminal is where you select your next mission. Upon interacting with the console in front of the hologram, the terminal will display a selection of the available biomes of Hoxxes IV. Certain mission types will be available within each planetary region, such as Salvage Operations, Egg Hunts, and Mining Expeditions. The rotation of biomes and mission types within them will shuffle every 30 minutes in real time. Upon selecting a mission, the Drop Pod will power up, and its doors will open. The mission will be forcefully started if the host of the team stands inside it for 15 seconds, but this will be reduced to 5 seconds if the entire team is inside the pod with them. The Mission Terminal is locked for everyone except the host of a party.
Trade Area[edit | edit source]
The Trade sector of the Space Rig includes The Shop and a Mineral Trade terminal.
With the Mineral Trade, you can exchange your crafting resources for minerals and vice versa. This is a good way to get rid of your minerals in the late game for additional money, or to buy resources if you only need a couple of Crafting Minerals. The Mineral Trade terminal is locked behind a short assignment, and will be inaccessible until it is completed. Selling pays 50 per unit and buying costs 150 per unit.
The Shop Terminal
Leisure Area[edit | edit source]
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.
The Barrel Hoop is a game where you kick barrels into a metal ring, referred to as the "hoop". It moves from side to side on a guide. A counter just above the hoop shows you your current score and how many barrels you've kicked.
In the bottom of the Barrel Hoop bay, there are platforms and ladders to climb back up to where you kick the barrels from, as well as a small tunnel leading to the launch bay.
Deep Dive Area[edit | edit source]
Access to the Deep Dive terminal is restricted to promoted Dwarves. Here you gain access to more complex missions, which are new every week.
The Forge is a special terminal on the Space Rig which is used by promoted, Veteran Dwarves, to craft Weapon Overclocks, Cosmetics, and redeem Mineral Containers acquired from Deep Dives, and special assignments.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Space Rig used to have a blocked off room called the "Firing Range".
- The Equipment area has various Equipment as props, including the "Lead Storm" Powered Minigun, Platform Gun, Deepcore GK2, M1000 Classic, "Warthog" Auto 210, BRT7 Burst Fire Gun, and the Reinforced Power Drills.
- As of the Roughneck DLC, it can be implied that the Space Rig is the seventeenth Space Rig out of the 87 around the Galaxy. Thanks to the specific hard hat/helmet that has a numbered designation. This is also the confirmed via the DRG information terminals where it says "DRG Space Rig 17" on the bottom of their screens.
