Ores are a type of mineable resource in Deep Rock Galactic. There are numerous different Ores scattered across the caverns of Hoxxes IV, some of which are required to unlock upgrades, while others are mission-related.
Alien Eggs are mysterious, yellow eggs with pink, veiny ridges found in walls, similar to large resources such as Aquarq. They are marked by pulsating red/purple orbs and organic "tubes" on the wall. They must be found and deposited in order to complete the primary objective during Egg Hunt mission types. Depending on the length of the mission, the team will have to collect 4, 6 or 8 eggs in total to complete the primary objective. Alien eggs are always found embedded within dull, fleshy Organic Material and appear as yellowish spheroids on the Terrain Scanner.
Encountered solely in Point Extraction as the primary objective, Aquarq takes the form of large blue crystals embedded in the rock. It can be located via smaller blue crystal formations on the surface, as well as a faint blue glow if they're near the surface.
A dark cyan-blue mineral found in wall surface veins, Morkite is the primary Mining Expedition objective, and only appears during these missions. The party will typically have to mine between 200 and 400 Morkite, depending on mission length and complexity. Once the quota has been filled, the M.U.L.E. will enable the recall function.
Encountered solely in Salvage Operation, Mini-M.U.L.E. Legs are used to repair 2 or 3 broken Mini-M.U.L.E.s. Four of them will generate slightly embedded in the ground around a nearby broken Mini-M.U.L.E. Three are needed to repair a Mini-M.U.L.E. They cannot be deposited.
Apoca Blooms are a secondary mission objective. They grow on the walls and floors of caves and tunnels, and must be collected to complete the secondary objective. Their petals are bioluminescent and can be seen in the darkness, making them easy to see at a distance.
Boolo Caps are a secondary mission objective. They grow on the walls and floors of caves and tunnels, and must be collected to complete the secondary objective. Their purple caps are bioluminescent and can be seen in the darkness, making them easy to see at a distance.
A blue-tinted metallic mineral found in wall surface veins, Dystrum is a secondary objective resource exclusive to Point Extraction and On-site Refining missions. It is not as bright as other minerals when light shines on it, so you may have to make a few passes to find it all.
The Fester Flea is a passive Creature found on Hoxxes. It is only found in missions with the "Exterminate Fester Flea" Secondary Objective. The Dwarves can kill a set amount of Fester Fleas to be rewarded with a bonus payout of Credits and Experience upon mission completion.
The Gunk Seed is a type of Secondary Objective which can appear in any mission type or biome. The Dwarves can collect a set amount of Gunk Seeds to be rewarded with a bonus payout of Credits and Experience upon mission completion.
Found as dark blue-purple (almost black) formations within tunnels and caves, Hollomite is a secondary objective resource. The secondary objective will usually require 25 chunks to be deposited.
These resources are not required for mission objectives, but are required to craft upgrades and cosmetics. As such, it's generally worth gathering them whenever they're discovered. They are permanently added to your inventory when the mission completes.
Croppa is a pale green metallic ore adorned with small purple spikes. It is found in surface deposits much like Morkite and Gold, although it slightly juts out of the walls and may spawn higher up than other crafting minerals.
Yeast Cone is an ingredient used to create Craftable drinks or acquire Beer Licenses in the Abyss Bar. It is fairly rare.
These resources are not essential to mission completion, but are nevertheless important to gameplay. They do not carry over between missions, and are converted into gold and/or XP at the end of the mission.
A bright red mineral found in wall surface veins, Nitra is used to call in resupply pods. It costs 80 Nitra per pod, and each resupply pod has four supply racks, each restoring 50% health and ammo to the user by default.
Red Sugar takes the form of bright red crystal and glowing formations scattered throughout the caves. It's vital to your survival, as Red Sugar is the only way to recover lost health besides calling for a Supply Pod (which costs Nitra) or using the Vampire perk.
A brilliant magenta mineral only available as massive chunks embedded into the terrain, Bittergem can be found by looking for clusters of magenta crystals on the surfaces nearby. Once extracted, the chunk can be deposited into the M.U.L.E. and will be worth a very healthy amount of credits at the end of the mission.
It is quite rare, only spawning with a 1/21 chance. Upon mission completion, the Bittergem will award 1000 - 1500 credits.
A strange black Rubik's cube-esque object with pulsating white grooves. It is a very rare resource that is not listed on any biome, and its uses are currently unknown.
This 'mineral' (though it might better be described as an artifact) can be located by the presence of bright gray and glowing spikes on the surrounding rock. These spikes seem to pulse with energy, though once the artifact has been removed from the deposit the spikes fade to dull, lifeless grey. When examined, the characters will comment on its bizarre nature and strange appearance.
It has a 1/26 chance to appear. Upon mission completion, the error cube will award 2000 experience.
Tyrant Shards are massive chunks of plant material that drop from the Korlok Tyrant-Weed event. Upon defeating the mini-boss, the main bulb itself will drop 3 tyrant shards which provide 350 credits as well as 500 experience per shard.
