Pickups are in-game objects that the player can collect by running near or over them. They range from those useful on the current mission (ammunition, health) to resources and mods that can be later used and equipped. Many pickups are shared with teammates.

Lootables

All lootable objects such as Crates, Chests, Canisters, and lootable corpses will all show up on radar when equipped with the warframe Thief's Wit mod. 

  • Butcher corpses appear when the ship is undergoing Self-Destruct Environmental Hazards. Pickups will be dispensed when the player interact with them using the interact key (default "X").
  • Both Butchers and Crewmen corpses appear during Invasion missions. They will appear according to what faction the tileset is affiliated to. Pickups will be automatically dispensed when the player walk over them.
  • Lockers can be locked or unlocked. Green unlocked lockers can be opened through interaction. Red locked lockers can only be opened if Master Thief is equipped. They can be opened using the interact key (default "X").
  • Canisters and Chests can be opened with bullets and melee attacks. Orokin Void canisters highly resemble explosive canisters, but they can still be easily distinguish as the explosive ones emit smoke and the lights are red tinted.
  • Lootables in hidden areas have a higher chance to yield rare resources, and rare mods in Orokin Void.
  • Master Thief, Desecrate, Rifle Scavenger, Sniper Scavenger, Pistol Scavenger and Shotgun Scavenger are Mods that affect pickup spawn patterns.

Items

Containers and dispatched enemies all have a chance to drop ammunition packs. Packs are dropped for every player in a mission. If a glowing vertical line is seen, but there is no ammo pack on the ground, it means the player has picked up the ammunition, but another party member has not. The ammo type is indicated based on the color and shape of the pack. The quantity of ammunition received by a player depends on the type of weapon used and the weapon itself. Orbs provide health and energy to Tenno in the field. Some of these orbs provide experience or Blueprints.

Ammo

Picking an ammo pack will refill only the ammo pool of their respective weapon. However, with the introduction of the ammo mutation mods in the Sling-Stone Event, one can convert different ammo packs as ammunition for the weapon equipped with one of these mods. The conversion will only happen if such modded weapon is out (not holstered) and the other weapon ammo is full (e.g. will not convert rifle ammo if your rifle ammunition is not full).

Pistol

  • This will refill 10 rounds of any shotgun ammo or 3 / 5 / 8 / 10 rounds of converted ammo.

Mods

FusionCorePackSilversingle

Modules are dropped by all enemy types. The drop rate is higher for heavy enemies and Bosses almost always drop at least one mod. Higher level enemies tend to drop higher ranked mods. 

It is common courtesy for players to mark a mod drop with a waypoint (default "G"). If aimed correctly, the waypoint turns into a "module" waypoint and marks presence of a mod for all other players. Mods sparkle blue when they have not been picked up. If a blue sparkle is seen, but there is no mod on the ground, it means the player has picked up the mod, but a party member has not. When Thief's Wit is equipped, mods are shown on the mini-map if any party member hasn't pickup it up yet.

Life Support Modules

Oxygenpack

Life Support Modules are dispensed from dead enemies in Survival missions. Each module restores 4% of the total life support system when picked up. They are automatically marked with a green marker.

Resources

Resource Orange
Resources are dropped by containers and enemies. The drop rate varies by the type of resource. Resource drops are uncommon when compared to other drops. The type of resources available depend on the location on the star map. Each area on the star map has three resources available with different rarity on their chance to drop. When Thief's Wit is equipped, resource drops are shown on the mini-map if any party member hasn't pickup it up yet.
Resource Blue
Additional "research" resources can be found for use in Clan Research, such as Detonite Ampule, Fieldron Sample and Mutagen Sample. These resources are blue in color in-game and only drop in quantities of 1.
