Gathering TipsEdit

Cryotic is primarily obtained by accomplishing Excavation missions, which is the only mission type that rewards Cryotic in large quantities. Cryotic can also be occasionally found in smaller amounts inside Orokin Sabotage and Earth Sabotage Resource Caches. Although this is not stated during an Excavation mission, resource boosters do in fact double Cryotic earnings at the mission's end.

TriviaEdit

  • Cryotic appears to be a mutagenic hazard that affects wildlife through excessive exposure, as shown in the Shifting Sands Tactical Alert where Desert Skates were mutated by Cryotic exposure into larger, tougher forms.
  • Interestingly, a single Cryotic unit can be used to sustain a snowdrift/snowman permanently (as described in certain Clan Dojo decorations), fitting its purpose as a super-cooler.
