General Quest Dialogue

Time to build a machine capable of safely (well, relatively) extracting and processing Flaked Letium from the surface. Fortunately Korolev used to operate Mobile Mining Platforms, giant laser drills that would float through the peaceful skies of Fortuna III in search of mineral veins to exploit.

The days those things could be safely operated are long gone, but they’re just the thing we need now to mine for Letium, with some assistance on the ground.

Final Rewards

Part 6 Dialogue

Our team made it back home! It will be a while before they can get back to work… why not take some time and let everyone Korolev is still king of the hill?

Objectives

  • Deliver 1 Gyroscope
  • Deliver 5 Miniature Reactors
  • Deliver 15 Copper Wire

Rewards

  • 3600 FP
  • x214 Korolev Scrip
  • x24000 Krypto Marks

Guide

  • Gyroscopes can be found in Cabinets. They can spawn inside the Crashed Ship.
  • Copper Wires can be found in Dumpsters and as static spawns laying on the ground. A common spot for farming these is at the Science Campus on Bright Sands, as that’s a big industrial area.
  • Miniature Reactors are a rare spawn. They can be easily found in Storage Boxes (The Cycle Storage Box). The best way to get these is by doing the Puzzles (power conduits), as the rooms have a guaranteed Storage Box. There’s one at the Water Facility on and East Collection Site on Bright Sands. There’s also one at the Skeleton Observation Site on Crescent Falls. Basically said, whenever you need this item and you see a Puzzle in some POI, then just try to figure it out. It guarantees a Miniature Reactor inside the Storage Box in the room. Check the image below to see how the puzzles look like:
