Storage Containers are breakable objects appearing in all mission types and can drop pickups such as credits, ammo, resources, and even mods.


Multiple variations of storage containers can also spawn once per mission. They are different in appearance (not to be confused with holiday/event themed containers) and give out a wide range of awards, such as trinkets of credits, ammo, resources, mods, faction parts or even a Forma.

Common Storage ContainersEdit

The most common variation of all Storage Containers and the most abundant in numbers. They are most often found in large numbers of up to 7 at once inside a vacant high-value hotspot.

When broken, they typically contain only one of the following:

  • A small / medium trinkets of Credits.
  • A random type of ammo magazine.
  • Energy Orb / Health Orb / Affinity Orb.
  • Nav Coordinate.
  • Resources of the respective planet.

Containers found in Treasure Rooms, side rooms and hidden compartments throughout the Orokin Void have a chance to drop a mod from the Treasure Rooms mod list.

There is a small chance for the containers to not yield any items.

Uncommon Storage ContainersEdit

The second most common variation of the Storage Containers. Whilst somewhat more scarce, it still takes up a respectable portion of the Storage Containers present in the mission.

When broken, they typically contain several of these loot at once:

  • A small/medium trinkets of Credits.
  • Few random types of ammo magazines.
  • Energy Orb / Health Orb / Affinity Orb.
  • Nav Coordinates.
  • Resources of the respective planet.

Rare Storage ContainersEdit

A rare variation of the Storage Containers, their appearance is similar to the standard storage container, but with a golden glow and a humming noise identical to that of the Sabotage Caches.

When broken, they usually contain:

  • Mantis Engines (Grineer), Mantis Fuselage (Corpus), or Mantis Avionics (Orokin).
  • A Detonite Injector (Grineer), Fieldron (Corpus), or Forma (Orokin).
  • 80 Endo.
  • A 30-minute Affinity or Credit Booster.
  • Occasionally a random weapon blueprint, including Research exclusive blueprints.
  • Credit quantity of around 700 to 1,200.

Each of the container variations (Grineer, Corpus, Orokin) has their own entry in the Codex.

Reinforced Storage ContainersEdit

Reinforced containers are the rarest of the Storage Containers and have their own model, with significantly bulkier plating than the standard variants, plus the golden glow and humming sound of the rare storage container. They require more damage to break than any other container. The models also reflect this with sections breaking off as the container is damaged.

When broken, they usually contain:

Each of the container variations (Grineer, Corpus, Orokin) has their own entry in the Codex.

Forgotten Grineer Storage ContainersEdit

Forgotten Grineer Storage Containers are rare containers that look almost identical to the Rare Storage Containers with some moss growing on it. They still produce the humming sound and glow of a Rare Storage Container. They are currently only found on Earth.

When broken, they contain:

This container has its own entry in the Codex.

Resource DepositsEdit

Resource Deposits are special containers that hold only a single type of resource, but always spawn anywhere between one and three pickups of their related resource. These deposits have a unique name and appearance matching the resource that they contain, and can only be found in the same areas as their associated resource. The rarity of deposits usually corresponds to the rarity of the contained resource; for example, Alloy Drums will be more common than Neural Arrays.

The various types of Resource Deposits include:

Each deposit has to be scanned five times to complete codex entry. (Currently, unscanned Deposits will not be shown in codex).

Farming Tips Edit

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.

  • In any given mission, there is a low chance of a single Rare Storage Container and a lower chance of a single Reinforced Storage Container spawning somewhere in the map. If one spawns, it will randomly select a vacant high-value hotspot, similar to that of a Syndicate Medallion, and spawn in it.
  • Special mission types like Alerts and Syndicate missions have a higher than average chance of spawning rare and reinforced containers.
  • Dark Sectors seem to have an increased chance to spawn Rare and Reinforced Containers.
  • Some abilities can break containers:
  • Carrier's exclusive mod Mod TT 20pxLooter is also a good option.


  • When affected by MirageIcon272 Mirage's SleightOfHand130xDark Sleight Of Hand ability, the container will blind enemies in a radius around the container when broken, but only if the container has not already been looted.


  • Before the FixedPrimeBoar Boar Prime was moved into the Prime Vault, Reinforced Orokin Containers used to drop its blueprint. There was a brief time after it was moved into the Prime Vault that it still dropped from the containers.
  • Darvo has a reinforced Orokin container in the back of his store.

Bugs Edit

  • Dying and reviving, after receiving boosters from the Rare Storage Containers, will remove the accumulated duration of the boosters gained from the containers.
