A Mining Machine is a giant Grineer Object found inside all Sabotage missions within the Grineer Asteroid tileset as the target for any cell operative to destroy, they can be found in 1-4 amount per mission.

It appears as a green, tank-like vehicle with its barrel mounted with a triangular drill with three Grinders. It works by spinning the three grinders clockwise while revolving the barrel counter-clockwise to chip away at the area being mined.


  • Sometimes a mining machine will spawn in a closed room with a window, as it actively mines. This machine can not be accessed.
  • Though the mining machine seemingly explodes when destroyed, the explosion is purely visual and does not deal any damage.
  • Even whilst destroyed, the mining machine can still be scanned.
