Material & Planet Bar Chart

Materials are components orange in color (Resources are blue) that are either dropped by enemies & bosses, found in creates, or inside ammo lockers and are needed for manufacturing items (Blueprints) in your ‘Foundry’. Other than Orokin Cells, every material and resource can only be found within certain planet systems

Material Rarity

There are three rarities of materials: Common, Uncommon and Rare.

  • Common materials can be found in quantities of hundreds at a time.
  • Uncommon materials can be found in quantities normally between 10 to 30 some of the uncommon materials are found in higher quantities between 50 and 100, such as Alloy Plate.
  • Rare materials will normally drop in quantities of 1. They are most often found by defeating bosses, and very rarely from normal enemies or ammo lockers & containers. All rare resources can also be found from assassination targets, such as Councilor Vay Hek and the Jackal. As of Update 9 rare resources can be seen in quantities of 2 and even 3 per drop.
    • Additional “research” resources can be found for use in Clan Research, known as the Detonite Ampule, Fieldron Sample and Mutagen Sample.They are found in quantities of 1.

  1. Hi; thanks for the work you did here. This game is deep, with much to learn if you wish to be efficient in your efforts to move forward! Rank 3, 95% to rank 4 at this time. Just deployed my first Titan Extractor last night, and again this morning. Received 1,138 alloy plate off of Venus, with 74% health remaining. NOTE: your notes state….”some of the uncommon materials are found in higher quantities between 50 and 100, such as Alloy Plate.” As the game has so many updates, and change is hard to keep up with, I thought I would show my appreciation for all your efforts to let you know that the amount of alloy plate (uncommon) appears to have changed. Regards !

  2. when will be update 9 analyze
