It is not impossible to mine a star. Rich with liquid metallic resources, the gas-giant Jupiter challenges harvesters with increased gravity, intense magnetic fields, and extreme temperatures. Only the most tenacious profiteers would dare operate here. Prevailing science of Corpus industry thrives in the clouds of Jupiter's outer atmosphere.
—Jupiter Fragment

Jupiter is a planet where the IconCorpusOn Corpus are the controlling faction. Home to the Corpus Gas City tileset stationed above the planet, it features large open spaces for vast movement and advanced maneuvers. The enemies within the city consists of Corpus Vapos units, and is the birthplace of the Amalgams; Corpus units that have been hybridized with Sentient technology from the Old War. These specialized Corpus Amalgam units take increased damage from DmgElectricitySmall64 Electricity and DmgMagneticSmall64 Magnetic, but lack the DmgPunctureSmall64 Puncture vulnerability from the rest of their Corpus brethren and are resistant to DmgBlastSmall64 Blast.
