Point Extraction are one of the types of missions available in Deep Rock Galactic. Point Extraction is the third mission that the player can unlock after completing one of the Assignment Missions. Point Extraction missions begin in a giant cave with an extraction platform in the middle with additional four gun turrets. The main goal of every Point Extraction mission in Deep Rock Galactic is to find and extract the right amount of Aquarq crystals. They are extremely well hidden in the ice walls of the cave.
Aquarq crystals are hidden inside ice walls - you can recognize them by the blue spots on the rock surface and the slight blue glow emitted by the crystal itself. Aquarq crystals can be hidden far up so Engineer's or Scout's help is invaluable during this type of task.
When you locate a crystal hidden inside a rock, you will have to extract it. The Aquarq crystal can be obtained in several ways - with a simple pickaxe, the special Driller tool, or with explosives. Once the crystal is separated from the rock, it can be picked up.
After collecting the crystal, the player is unable to perform any other actions. Their character also moves much slower. Aquarq crystals must be delivered to the mining platform and thrown into one of the two deposits.
The amount of Aquarq crystals that needs to be collected depends on the mission's length and its difficulty:
Number of Aquarq crystals
Collect 7 Aquarq crystals
Collect 10 Aquarq crystals
