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.

Mission-Related

These resources are required to complete primary and/or secondary objectives. They are not added to your gathered resources at the end of a mission, unlike the crafting resources below.

Primary Objectives

These items are required in order to finish the current mission.

Alien egg icon.png Alien Egg

Main article: Alien Egg

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. Sometimes, they may summon a Glyphid Praetorian, or a Swarm. A loud, presumably Pretorian roar will be emmited to all players when an egg is mined, rather followed by no related Mission Control lines, meaning a Pretorian summon, or a swarm line, meaning there is a swarm approaching.

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. They are often hard to spot in the Glacial Strata, due to the similar colour. They likely have the same model as the Jadiz, but textured differently.
