Aquarq is the primary objective in a Point Extraction, as well as "Collect Aquarqs" objective on Deep Dives. Either 7 or 10 must be collected and deposited in the Mine Head.
Aquarqs are heavy objects and must be picked up and carried by hand, or via Bosco. When carrying it a Dwarf cannot do anything but throw flares / throwables, ride ziplines. It gives a 25% movement speed penalty (sprinting is also disabled). It can be dropped by throwing, using the [FIRE] or [MINE] key, which are LMB and RMB by default respectively. Switching weapons or using the Laser Pointer will also cause your character to drop the Aquarq.
Aquarq is a large glowing blue crystal. It uses the same model as Jadiz, Bittergem, and Compressed Gold.
The area that the crystal is buried in is dotted by small sky-blue crystals and a dim blue glow, similar to other resources hidden within the walls. Small crystals only shine when there is Aquarq nearby.
Aquarqs can be found in any biome whenever they are part of an objective.
- A quiet humming sound was added to the Aquarq in Update 33: New Frontiers
