—In-game description

Hexenon is a resource of Corpus origin, a byproduct of the gas extraction process of Jupiter's refineries. It can be acquired from any enemies or loot caches as well as Extractor drones on Jupiter, or as a potential reward through Disruption.

It may also rarely be found from Corpus ground enemies in Corpus Ship segments of Empyrean missions.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Hexenon can be effectively farmed from the Cameria or Sinai nodes on Jupiter. Due to being a Dark Sectors mission, this particular node has a +20% Resource Drop Rate with the enemy type changed to Infested. Players will not encounter Corpus Nullifiers that hinder resource farming abilities such as HydroidIcon272.png Hydroid's Mod TT 20px.png Pilfering Swarm, NekrosIcon272.png Nekros' Desecrate130xDark.png Desecrate, and KhoraIcon272.png Khora's Mod TT 20px.png Pilfering Strangledome.
  • Hexenon can be farmed from Amalgam enemies (~7.2% drop chance), which continuously spawn during Disruption missions and also sometimes in the defense mission Io.
  • The easiest way to get Hexenon (at least in small amounts) is also the most passive: Extractors. Using a Distilling Extractor, you have roughly a 38% chance to get around 60-80 Hexenon, since it is, in fact, an uncommon resource. This can be done every 8 hours.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name "hexenon" might be based off 2-hexanone, a neurotoxic ketone of hexane, which can appear as a bright yellow liquid.
  • It may also be derived from a combination of xenon and the chemical symbol for helium (He), both noble gases, fitting for a resource introduced alongside the Corpus Gas City redesign.
  • Another possible origin for the name is it being a scientific-sounding composite of greek "hexa" for "six" and latin "nonus" for "nine" resulting in 69, referencing the community's efforts to keep instance 69 of Fortuna, Cetus, and Necralisk going.
