Oxium is a rare lighter than air alloy of Orokin origin, used in certain Corpus Robotics.

—In-Game Description

Oxium is an uncommon component. Dropped by the uncommonly encountered Oxium Osprey with a guaranteed drop rate, it can be found in quantities of 7-12 and will only drop if the Osprey is killed before it destroys itself by charging against the player, an ally, or a wall.

Oxium can also be found by destroying Storage Containers, completing low-tier Bounties, and by opening the 3rd Cache in Grineer Sealab Sabotage missions.

Gathering Tips[edit | edit source]

Tips collected from common player experience and should be viewed as advice rather than fact.

  • Playing Corpus Excavation, Defense, Survival, and Mobile Defense missions can offer a decent amount of Oxium as well, the lowest level being Kiliken, Venus.
  • Keeping enemies in an alerted state in Sabotage missions can bring a fair amount of Oxium, especially on lower level missions, where more demanding enemies do not spawn right away.
  • Io, Jupiter used to yield around 250 Oxium in 10 waves. The updated corpus tileset on Io has negatively impacted the Oxium yield. A 10-minute match now only averages around 100 Oxium.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • IvaraIcon272.pngIvara can use Prowl130xDark.pngProwl on the Ospreys, potentially doubling the amount of Oxium dropped by a single unit.
  • As it's dropped by a specific enemy and is not a planet-specific drop, it cannot be obtained by using Extractors.
  • Sometimes Oxium can get stuck in the ceiling in narrow hallways/locations with a low ceiling, Loot Radar mods (Mod TT 20px.pngAnimal Instinct & Mod TT 20px.pngThief's Wit) can help locating those otherwise invisible resource drops.
  • Oxium can also be acquired from Grineer/Corpus/Orokin storage containers, albeit with a very low chance. Therefore, one should not rely on this source due to it being infrequent.
  • As of Update 18.0, NekrosIcon272.pngNekros can Desecrate130xDark.pngDesecrate Oxium Ospreys.
  • Each player obtains a different amount of Oxium from the same pickup, implying that the amount of Oxium contained in a pickup is not pre-determined.
  • Recommended manner of dealing with Oxium Ospreys before they self-destruct without dropping the desired resource is incapacitating them before they are able to see the enemy and attack. Otherwise focusing on diverting their attention from fighting (Terrify130xDark.pngTerrify, RadialBlind130xDark.pngRadial Blind, RestRage130xDark.pngRest & Rage, and similar abilities) is a good way of approaching the situation.
  • Sorties seem to have somewhat higher spawn rates for the Ospreys.
