Extractors are drones that collect Resources from a planet's surface, which allows for automatic gathering of resources without the need for player control.

Titan ExtractorEdit

DETitan Extractor

The most basic type of all Extractors. It requires 4 hours to collect Resources.

Titan Extractor blueprints can be purchased in the Market for Credits64‍ 50,000. The blueprint is re-usable.

Titan Extractor PrimeEdit

DETitan Extractor Prime

This extractor has twice the capacity of the common extractor.

It was first available to the Blaze and Inferno levels of Ember Prime Access. This extractor returned temporarily at December 8, 2015 through January 5, 2016 as part of the purchase-able Prime Vault, along with Frost Prime, Latron Prime, and Reaper Prime, as well as Misa Prime Syandana, and Frost Prime avatars. It can only be obtained by buying the Prime Vault pack, however.

Distilling ExtractorEdit


The Distilling Extractor has a greater chance of collecting Uncommon and Rare resources.

This type of extractor follows exactly the same mechanics as the Titan version. However, it has double the health and takes 8 hours to collect resources instead of 4 hours. It requires a fair amount of Oxium and far more Credits to build.

Distilling Extractor blueprints can be purchased in the Market for Credits64‍ 50,000. The blueprint is re-usable.

Distilling Extractor PrimeEdit


Compared to the Distilling Extractor, it has an increased chance to collect Uncommon and Rare resources.

It was only available to the Stomp level of Prime Access (Rhino) and the Prime Accessories pack.

How to useEdit

  1. Build your Extractor of choice in the Foundry.
  2. Click on the Planet with the desirable resources.
    1. Note that all missions on the target planet must be unlocked to deploy an Extractor.
    2. After claiming the extractor from the foundry, you may need to log out and back into the game.
  3. Click "Deploy Extractor" (PC) or press R3 (PlayStation 4) or in on the right stick (Xbox One).
  4. Select the desired Extractor.
  5. Keep an eye on the timer and health of the Extractor.
  6. You can click "Retrieve Extractor" to put a currently working Extractor back into your inventory.
    1. Retrieving the Extractor before the timer is up will reset its progress. In other words, retrieving an Extractor with 5 minutes left on the timer and deploying it again on any planet will not yield any resources and will reset the timer back to 4/8 hours for the Titan/Distilling Extractor, respectively.
  7. When the Extractor collects the resources, click "Claim Now" to retrieve the extractor.

Number of deployable dronesEdit

The number of resource drones you can deploy is dependent on your Mastery Rank and whether or not you have Founder/Prime Access status. Starting with 1 drone at Mastery rank 0, you can deploy one additional drone at rank 5 and rank 10. Having Founder/Prime access lets you deploy one more additional drone. 

  • Mastery 0–4: 1 drone
  • Mastery 5-9: 2 drones
  • Mastery 10+: 3 drones
  • Founder: +1 drone
  • Prime Access: +1 drone

The maximum of deployable drones is 5 with rank/founder/prime access combination.

Mechanic notesEdit

  • Extractors will begin to collect resources once deployed. Once the extraction has been completed, the resources must be retrieved manually.
    • The amount of resources collected is equal to picking up the resource four times on the planet. For many Rare resources (including Orokin Cells) this means a successful haul will result in four. For some (such as Neural Sensors) additional may be procured as certain Rare resources drop in groups of 1-3. (In rare circumstances, it is possible to get 4-8 of a rare resource)
  • The Extractor may take damage during each deployment. Failing to recall the Extractor before its health expires will result in the drone's destruction.
    • Higher level planets have a higher chance of damaging the Extractor.
    • This damage will never equal or exceed a fully restored drone, meaning an undamaged drone may be deployed without fear.
  • When the Extractor's health reaches zero, the collect/deploy button is replaced with an option to scrap it for 100 credits.
  • After deployment, you can view the Extractor's health bar and progress by selecting the planet it is deployed on. You can check the Extractor's health percentage by hovering over the extractor icon.
  • A damaged Extractor's health will slowly regenerate in a player's inventory, at a rate of approximately 1 health per 5 minutes. Thus, it takes 5 hours for a Titan Extractor and 10 hours for a Distilling Extractor to fully recover.


  • Mars and Europa are the only two systems that have two Rare Resources.
    • For Mars, Morphics are much more likely to be harvested than normal.
  • A player who plays often may find it wise to build additional extractors. Damaged ones can be left in storage to repair while undamaged ones may be used in their place.
  • A good way to have a constant supply of extractors is to have 5 Distilling Extractors for when you will be out for long periods of time. Have 10 Titan Extractors to alternate per extraction in case all of them get damaged. This will ensure that none of your extractors will be destroyed if you deploy them at a constant rate, collecting resources and instantly deploying an extractor at 100% health.


  • Some times when claiming an Extractor, the "deploy extractor" button may not appear immediately. You may need to exit the Navigation and reopen it before the button appears. 
  • A drone that is at 100% progress is considered damage immune, regardless if the resources are collected.  So there's no need to worry about going to bed while your drones are collecting, granted they have sufficient health to last until they get to 100% progress.


  • Extractors were added into the game in Update 11.0, with the introduction of the Titan Extractor.
  • The provided media appearance of the Titan Extractor is similar to those of the Sentinels, bearing connection cylinders, used to attach Cosmetics, and an eye on top of it.
