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, 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]

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 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 barrels 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 perk. There are four terminals, one in each of the four player cabins. Each cabins are subtly decorated around the personality and attribute of each class.

The other areas include the Wardrobe to equip Cosmetics and Armor Skins, the Medbay, and the Memorial Hall in the upper level.

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]

The Equipment sector of the Space Rig includes the Equipment, Drone Modification and Pickaxe Customization terminals.

Here you can manage the equipment of your dwarves. Everything can be upgraded, including your armor and your weapons. You can also choose your Perks and put Weapon Skins.

Mission Area[edit | edit source]

The Mission sector of the Space Rig includes the Missions and Assignments terminals and the Drop Pod.

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.

The player can accept and abort assignments, which need to be completed to access new terminals, Promotion, rewards and weapons via Equipment Licenses.

Trade Area[edit | edit source]

The Trade sector of the Space Rig include The Shop and Mineral Trade terminals.

At The Shop you can buy new cosmetic varieties for your dwarves. Cosmetics are bought with Credit.png Credits and Crafting Minerals. All cosmetics must be bought individually per class.

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 Credit.png50 per unit and buying costs Credit.png150 per unit.

Leisure Area[edit | edit source]

The Leisure sector of the Space Rig include The Abyss Bar with its Jukebox.

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.

Deep Dive Area[edit | edit source]

The Deep Dive sector of the Space Rig include the Deep Dive terminal and The Forge.

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.
