Ancient energy cell from the Orokin era.

—In-Game Description

An Orokin Cell is a rare component that can be found on Saturn, Ceres and Deimos. It is usually found in quantities of 1-2. 

All bosses (including the Stalker) have a chance to drop an Orokin Cell after being defeated, though General Sargas Ruk and Lieutenant Lech Kril have a better chance to drop it, the former of which are the respective bosses of the planets.

By purchasing this item you can directly exchange Platinum64.png 10 for 1 Orokin Cell.

—In-Game Description

Orokin Cells can be purchased directly from the market for Platinum64.png 10.

Gathering Tips

These are based on opinions and may not be true. These should be viewed as advice unless proven undoubtedly true. Check comments for confirmation. Results may vary.

  • Assassination and Invasion missions on a planet where Orokin Cells drop is a very quick way to get a lot of Orokin Cells. With good gear and/or good teammates, a fast moving squad can do a single run within 2 minutes.
  • Making Helene, Saturn your go-to leveling spot (instead of Hydron, for instance) will passively keep your cell stock up.
  • Piscinas on Saturn, a dark sector survival mission, yields Plastids as well as Orokin Cell in addition to offering XP bonuses. Expect 5 - 10 per 20-25 min run.
  • Exta, Ceres also has a fairly good chance of dropping Orokin Cells since it is a combination of bosses as well being on a planet with Orokin Cells on it.
  • On Telesto, Saturn, one can get Orokin Cells from Cell Arrays: There are usually one to two arrays found at this map, which can drop 1-3 Cells.
  • On Gabii, Ceres, you can get 4-7 Orokin Cells from opening containers or breaking Cell Arrays.

Patch Notes

Hotfix 25.8.1 (2019-10-09)
Hyena Change (Razorback mission only):
An Orokin Cell farming exploit was brought to our attention by not only players, but also our internal flagging system when such a method is tripped for misuse. In short, players were forcing the Hyena’s to spawn infinitely by entering/exiting rooms knowing that their Orokin Cell drop rate is 100%. As a result of this misuse, the Orokin Cell drop rate for the Hyena’s in the Razorback mission will diminish the more you spawn, to still allow for multiple drop attempts but without giving away the entire cake. Please note that players who are trade banned due to triggering this exploit will be manually unbanned after this Hotfix.

Hotfix 23.0.5 (2018-06-22)

  • Orokin Cells pickups will now appear in the pop-up notification similar to Argon Crystals.

Hotfix 22.20.7 (2018-05-30)

  • Replaced the Orokin Cell crafting requirement for numerous Decorations to either Morphics, Neurodes, or Control Modules.

Update 18.5 (2016-03-04)

  • Archwing Crafting requirements have been adjusted for players crafting the Odonata in The Archwing Quest:
    • Orokin Cell is now 3x Control Module.

Update 17.3 (2015-09-02)

  • Fixed Drekar Heavy Gunners dropping Orokin Cells.

Update 16.4 (2015-04-23)
