Gathering Tips[]

These should be viewed as advice for finding the materials until better facts are proven.

Doing Steel Path for Ferrite is NOT recommended, seeing as the kills/minute are greatly diminished compared to the other missions where you can run around and focus on opening containers, which is a great benefit when it comes to farming common materials.

  • Probably one of the best ways to farm Ferrite is Apollodorus, Mercury (Level 6-10, Survival). You can easily, with a NekrosIcon272 Nekros, stay in the mission for 10 mins, go for all the containers (with a Mod TT 20px Master Thief ) and get over 4k Ferrite (20-25k per hour), and extract right after you receive the B rotation-reward (or even before then, if you so desire).
  • M Prime, Mercury (Level 7-9, Crossfire Exterminate) is a great place to farm Ferrite. It will yield around 2,5k-3k Ferrite (~18-19k per hour). Break open all the containers and open all the lockers to achieve maximum possible yield. Mod TT 20px Master Thief will be of help in achieving as much loot as possible.
  • Terminus, Mercury (Level 8-10, Crossfire Sabotage) is another great place to farm Ferrite. Open every container and locker, and you should end up with about 4k Ferrite per mission (~18k per hour).
  • Teshub, Void (Level 10-15, Exterminate) can yield 2.5k-5k Ferrite (~14k-30k per hour), when all crates and lockers are looted. However, this method bears the drawback of taking a lengthy amount of time to complete each mission, due to the big tile set (12+ minutes).
  • Ani, Void (Level 20-25, Survival) is also a good place to go to get Ferrite (~14k per hour), but still takes a lengthy time to complete.


  • Ferrite's icon is a reused graphic for Gallium Gallium, the difference being that the Ferrite icon is a dull grey while the Gallium icon is bright silver with a blueish tinge
    • As a result the Corpus letters stamped on the icon Corpus GCorpus A transcribe to Ga, the chemical symbol of Gallium, instead of actually spelling Corpus FCorpus E or Fe as for Ferrum/Iron.
  • Ferrite is a scientific name for alpha-iron or pure iron. It is used in carbon-iron alloys.
