Blueprints Requiring CryoticEdit
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. Smeeta Kavat's double pickup/affinity Charm buff will also double Cryotic earnings, provided that the buff is active at the time an excavator finishes digging. The difficulty of the Excavation mission does not affect the amount of cryotic being awarded.
- The name Cryotic stems from the Greek word κρύο (cryo), which translates to cold.
- 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.
