Although only the main objective is required to complete a mining mission in Deep Rock Galactic, the player may choose to complete a side mission for which he or she will receive additional credits at the end.
In the picture presented above, one of the additional resources, Alien Fossil, can be seen that has to be collected in order to complete a side task during the mining mission. Collect additional resources by pressing the action button (the default E key) and deposit them in the M.U.L.E robot, just like the other materials.
While performing side missions in Deep Rock Galactic, the player will have to find one of the following additional resources or supplies:
- Alien Fosil - a fossil with a strange creature, hard to see in the dark;
- Apoca Bloom - a plant with white and slightly glowing petals;
- Boolo Cap - tall mushrooms on a thin pink-cyan leg that glow in the dark;
- Hollomite - thin purple crystals with pink protrusions growing from the ground.
