Hi Ho!

To make progress in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor, Funday Games’ auto-shooter, you need upgrades. We’ve run through all those available here. But to buy those upgrades and level up your weapons, you’ll need resources. Here, we list all Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor resources, explain where to find them, and how to gather them as efficiently as possible.

Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor Resources, Explained

There are three main categories of resources in the Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor:

  1. Standard Resources: Resources that are found in every level of every biome. You need these for basic progression and are readily available throughout the game.
  2. Secondary Objective Resources: You must collect these special resources as part of random secondary objectives set to each level. Completing these objectives is necessary for acquiring specific resources and progressing further in the game.
  3. Crafting Resources: Crafting resources are used to purchase permanent upgrades after completing a dive. You get these by collecting specific resources during dives, and as such you want to target these if possible.

Each level of a dive will have a variety of standard resources, at least one secondary resource (once unlocked), and two randomly selected crafting resources. Just be aware that mineral resources are often embedded in rock so require extracting.

How to Get Resources in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor Efficiently

To gather resources quickly in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor, try using the Driller class. It has the ability to mine efficiently with its mining buff, making it the ideal choice for resource gathering. Also, we suggest focusing on lower hazard levels. The Crystalline Caverns biome, in particular, offers a less hazardous environment compared to other biomes, making resource collection easier.

By repeatedly running through lower hazard levels, especially the aforementioned Crystalline Caverns , you can maximize your resource gathering efforts.

At the end of each dive, you can see a summary of all the resources you’ve acquired during that run. This overview allows you to track your progress and strategize for future dives.
