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.

Main article: Nitra


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.

Loose Nitra takes a roughly tetrahedral shape.

Main article: Red Sugar

Gold chunks have a 1/3 chance to spawn.

Main article: Bittergem


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.

Main article: Error Cube


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.

Main article: Tyrant Shard


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.
