— Mission Control

Voicelines remarked by Mission Control.

These lines are designed to be informative. Whether it be instructions for the task ahead or warnings about incoming hostiles, the lines serve to help guide players towards understanding the requisite procedures for any given mission or assignment Deep Rock Galactic throws the dwarves' way. Aside from that, the lines also allude to the internal functioning of the interstellar mining company: its departments, employees, technology, etc. Though despite its corporate demeanor, the charm of every line shines through as it reveals the personality of the individual representing Mission Control. For every snide critique, there is a heartfelt congratulation that awaits all miners who have chosen to take part in the hazardous labor deep within this solar region.

Mission Control is voiced by Ghost Ship Games' art director, Robert Friis.


Starting Tutorial
Welcome to the planet Hoxxes, Miner! This will be your first dive into the underground, and it should grant you a chance to learn the ins and outs of our operation here.
We have provided you with an All purpose drone, nicknamed: Bosco. Bosco will assist you on this and other solo missions. You can have Bosco help you check out places of interest, he can mine minerals, as well as fight the good fight. Should you be so unfortunate as to go down, he will also revive you. Put him to good use and he will do half the job for you.
Progressing Tutorial
Let's get familiar with the basics. Just follow the instructions and you'll be an elite miner in no time!
Well done, you are doing fine! Your objective on this training mission is to find and mine 100 units of Morkite. Get to it!
Alert! Defense barriers have been breached, we have a horde of enemies heading in your direction. It was a pleasure meeting you! Hope you will get an honourable death.
You survived?! I just knew you had it in you! Incidents like this sadly occur fairly frequently on Hoxxes and my best advice is to get accustomed to your weapons and gear. Let's continue the training.
This is all you need to know. Now retrieve the rest of the Morkite and finish the Mission. If you forgot something or don't know how to continue, check your Miner's Manual for more details.
Passable work, Miner! You will be a good fit for our operations, and Management will be pleased that they were correct in putting their faith in you. Return to base and lets get you into the fray properly. Press the button on the M.U.L.E to call in the Escape Pod.

Joining Deep Rock Galactic as a Greenbeard
Congratulations on signing on for Deep Rock Galactic, miner, and welcome on board. Settle in and get your bearings, then proceed to the Mission Selection terminal and select your first mission! We are looking forward to seeing you in action!
Kicking Barrels
Into the Launch Bay
Barrels are to be left alone and not hurled, kicked, tossed or in any way moved around.
Launch control reports foreign objects in the launch tube. It appears something is interfering with the force field. Would you happen to know anything about it?
Please don't kick the barrels into the launch bay... Barrels and launch thrusters do not mix.
Please just let the barrels be... As "fun times" go, there are better options available.
Stop it! NOW!
Fair warning: any vandalizing or destruction of company property will be deducted from your pay at the end of the month.
Into the Drop Pod
You cannot bring barrels with you on missions, but I applaud your efforts.
Seriously? You want to bring... barrels... with you during an orbital insertion?
The seats in the Drop Pod are meant for employees only - not barrels.
It breaks my heart to tell you this, but no, the barrel will not accompany you on your next mission.
All Barrels on the Space Rig kicked into the Launch Bay
Congratulations. You've succeeded in depositing all the barrels into the launch tube. Well done, well done. Now... could I convince you to get back to work, perhaps?

Point Extraction

Season Events

"Plaguefall Part I: A Critical Situation"
Mission 1
First leg of the cleanse complete, Miners - well done. The Rockpox is proving exceptionally insidious, even for Hoxxes - it's spreading at an alarming rate and R&D are desperate for more data. Your efforts are invaluable, but the clock is ticking.
Mission 2
Good cleanse, Miners. R&D are most anxious to get down there and collect samples. Well timed as well - Management is most dissatisfied with the working conditions groundside at present. The Miners' Union will not leave them alone.
Mission 3
Another one down, Miners. Good work. R&D is reporting commendable progress - but it's not all good news. Autopsies of infected glyphids show some rather alarming results. R&D suggests you put in some extra effort not to get infected yourselves - the long-term effects could be...undesirable.
Mission 4
Another cave cleansed, Miners. Nicely done. More disturbing news from R&D, I am afraid. It turns out the Rockpox attacks both the cognitive and pain receptive areas of the brain. From running tests on infected Glyphids, it would appear they are in perpetual, agonizing pain. Putting them down is practically a mercy.
Mission 5
Well done on making it back, Miners. The latest reports reveal a nasty narrative - it appears the amount of Lithophage-carrying meteors entering the atmosphere are increasing. And...I will be frank...I have seen many a meteor shower in my day, but these seem to be almost deliberately striking Hoxxes.
"Plaguefall Part II: The Rockpox Spreads"
Mission 1
This last cleanse of yours made a big dent in the readouts - like the Lithophage is practically an organism and you struck it square in the knackers. R&D believes just a few more cleanses aimed directly into the heart of the local cluster should stem the tide a bit. Get it done, Miners.
Mission 2
Management would like to extend their personal commendations for your efforts, Miners. The Rockpox is proving more than just a little costly - on top of lost equipment and lost access to promising mineheads, we are losing miners at an alarming rate. Miners...take care down there.
Mission 3
You did admirably, Team. Admirably. But...we...lost three more teams while you were down there. Dammit all to Hell...
Mission 4
There was a major pulse throughout the entire local cluster of infection when you cleared this last cave. The meteors are still coming, and there is no *cure* as such forthcoming, but...your efforts have helped us perfect our cleansing methods, and now we stand a fighting chance. Well...well done, Miners. Rock and Stone.
Mission 5
Excellent! Your efforts have helped keep the Rockpox at bay! Assignment completed! Management thanks you.
Well done! Your work has been instrumental in preventing the uncontrolled spread of the Rockpox. Management thanks you.
Assignment completed! The Rockpox remains a threat, but your valiant efforts have helped keep things under control! Management thanks you.
"Critical Corruption - Part I: Mutation"
Mission 1
An admirable start, Miners. Keep this up, and we may just stand a chance against the Rockpox. Do not let your guard down, and work quickly.
Mission 2
Good work. Planetary cleansing efforts are continuing, and your contributions cannot be overstated. The Rockpox continues to spread, but we are confident that our efforts are having an effect.
Mission 3
Well done, Miners. R&D extends their personal thanks for your efforts. The data you provide is invaluable in understanding the new Lithophage mutations we are encountering.
Mission 4
Welcome back. It... it saddens me to report that we have lost contact with 2 mineheads in the polar region since your last insertion. Keep fighting, Miners.
Mission 5
Well done, Miners. R&D is confident that our efforts are having an impact, even if planetary reports remain grim. Our work is far from over, but for now... rest with pride.
"Critical Corruption - Part II: Turning the Tide"
Mission 1
You made it back, but we need to send you right back into the fray. The Rockpox is reacting with even greater ferocity to our efforts, but it is my belief that this is the act of a cornered, rabid animal. Keep it up, Miners.
Mission 2
That's another one for the books, Miners. Well done. Scanners are reporting unusual activity from deep within the Lithophage comet. I'd advise maintaining high alert for the time being.
Mission 3
Back in one piece, good work. More bad news I'm afraid, Miners. Space Rig 5 has been struck head-on by a Rockpox meteor fragment. The station fusion core they um... all hands are considered lost.
Mission 4
Your efforts are appreciated, Miners; but the situation keeps mounting. The Rockpox is unlike any enemy we have encountered before. Management has issued a state of emergency across all facilities within the Hoxxes system, and instructs every employee to keep suited up at all times.
Mission 5
You have done it, Miners. At the completion of your last mission, scanners picked up a massive convulsion throughout the entire Rockpox biomass. We are getting reports from all over the planet that several major infestations have spontaneously withered and pulled back! The Rockpox is still here, but now it is our turn. Rock and Stone, Miners. The dead, and Management, salute you.

Promotion Congratulations
Congratulations! You've bled blood, rock, and bullets like only a few before you. You've journeyed far and wide, you've struggled and persevered, and you've now earned your promotion. Management - and I - salute you. Damn fine work, miner. Rock and Stone!
Excellent! You have contributed to the wealth of Deep Rock Galactic, and Management salutes you. Be proud, very few dwarves live long enough to get promoted, and you have truly earned it! Rock and Stone, miner!
I'm proud of you. You've done well for yourself since you joined the company. I recall you joining up as a scrawny greenbeard, and figured you'd join the dead down in the deeps in short order. However, consider my position changed... You've grown into your role and have more than proven yourself. It's my personal pleasure to announce that Management has granted your promotion. Rock and Stone, miner! Well done.
You have proven yourself an important and valuable asset for Deep Rock Galactic! Management appreciates your contribution and grants you an honorable promotion. This is a very special moment - reserved for the few. Take your time to bask in it - we salute you. Congratulations, miner. Rock and Stone!


Marking Xenofungus Repeatedlyㅤ
Oh, SHUT UP about the BLOODY mushrooms already! MOVE IT, team!
ENOUGH about the mushrooms! We all know it's a mushroom! We get it!
"Mushroom, mushroom!", SHUT IT! Get back to work!
FOCUS, team! Leave the damn mushrooms alone!
Marking Compressed Gold or Bittergem Repeatedlyㅤ
Yes, yes, you're rich. Time to get a move on, I got Management breathing down my neck here!
Oh my aching head...! Would you lugs please bloody focus...?
I told them letting you keep the gold for yourselves was a mistake...
Tick tock, team...! We're not getting any younger here!
Destroying Seasonal Decorations
The decorations are meant to be enjoyed with your eyes, not your feet!
Stop kicking the decorations around!
I advise that you leave the decorations alone before Management asks me to flush the Launch Bay with radon gas.
Vandalism can and will result in a significant fine. Consider yourself warned.
Vandalism of the decorations will not be tolerated and will result in detention!
If this continues, Management has the power and will to close the Abyss Bar! Is that what you want?
The decorations are there to contribute to a festive atmosphere, they are not toys.
What is this; kindergarten? You should feel ashamed of yourself.
How old are you? You're behaving like ill-mannered children. Please - stop it!
You're making Management consider cancelling the holidays - mine included! Please stop vandalizing the decorations.
Any and all decorations are to be considered company property and are to be treated with respect.

Our scanners have picked up a massive deposit and we're sending you in along side a heavy armed lifter to get as much mining done as possible before the position is overrun. We're picking up extreme bio-signs in the area, so we expect we'll only have a short window of opportunity. Get it done team.
