Gathering Tips

These are based on opinions and may not be true. These should be viewed as advice for finding the materials until better facts are proven.

  • Carme (Mobile Defense) on Jupiter will possibly drop as much as 2,000 a run if you loot all of the containers and lockers.
  • Olympus (Disruption) on Mars can provide at least 2,000 Salvage.
  • Endless missions have a higher concentration of mobs and also contains a decent amount of storage containers and lockers, which also have a chance to drop Salvage.
    • Elara (Survival) on Jupiter, with a Nekros (Desecrate130xDark Desecrate) and a Kubrow or Kavat with Mod TT 20pxAnimal Instinct and Mod TT 20pxScavenge, as well as a nice Slash AoE-weapon like GrineerWhip Atterax or DEScoliac2 Scoliac (Or GrineerFlameThrower Ignis / ChainLightningGunEdit Amprex, if you don't like Slide-Attacks). You can systematically go from room to room, and open most lockers and destroy all crates (Works best in Solo-mode). This method should net you about 600-1,000 Salvage per minute (Without a Resource Booster) until no lockers/crates remain.
    • Io (Defense) and Callisto (Interception) on Jupiter can net approximately 2,000 - 2,500 after each run to either wave 5, or round 1, respectively.
