The Ebonut (pronounced eh-boh-nut) is a type of Secondary Objective which can appear in any mission type. The Dwarves can collect Ebonuts to be rewarded with a bonus payout of Credits and Experience upon level completion.

Appearance

Similar to most types of real-world nuts, Ebonuts are encased in a large rocky shell which protects the actual nut inside. The base of the shell is a dark-grey rocky column which is similar in appearance and color to Ebonite Glyphids. The shell protecting the nut is a lighter brown in comparison. Once the shell is broken the nut inside is similar in color and size to an oyster pearl where it can then be collected. The internals of the plant appear to be a dark pinkish color.

Locations & Gathering

Ebonuts are sparsely distributed throughout a level and randomly placed on floors, walls and (rarely) ceilings. They are spawned in upon level creation and are similar in placement to other collectible secondary objective resources, such as Boolo Caps and Alien Fossils.

It is not possible to get the Ebonut itself until the shell is broken. The shell can only be destroyed by melee damage (e.g. Pickaxe, Reinforced Power Drills or Impact Axe). It takes three Pickaxe strikes to break open an Ebonut's shell (two with the Skull Crusher Ale buff), progressively becoming cracked until it has been fully broken. The Pickaxe's Power Attack will destroy the shell instantly.

Once the shell has been broken the Ebonut inside can then be retrieved which adds it to the player's personal inventory. Ebonuts must be deposited (into the M.U.L.E., the Minehead or the Drop Pod) to count towards the total amount collected. The remaining husk can also be destroyed with one pickaxe hit.

The amount of Ebonuts needed to complete a mission will always be 14, but there will always be more Ebonuts in a level than are needed to complete the Secondary Objective. Collecting surplus Ebonuts is not necessary and serves no purpose beyond a trifling single-digit boost to the resulting mission experience.

Tips

  • The Driller's Impact Axes will destroy the shell upon impact and can also be recovered afterwards.
  • The Reinforced Power Drills can quickly break the shell, so consider using it if you have fuel to spare and want to save a power attack.
