Protecting the Excavator


You must make sure the excavator survives during its excavation process or else you will not get the full amount of Cryotic.

If an excavator is destroyed it gives only an amount equal to the percentage that it was finished.



Excavators will eventually run out of power and will stop the mining process.

It is up to you or your squad to collect power cells that have been dropped by enemies by picking them up.

Once you obtain a power cell you must bring it to the extractor to increase its power so it may finish the mining.

Successful Excavation


Once the excavator has finally finished collecting Cryotic, the amount that hit collects is given to you as a resource.
