—In-game description for all Toroid variants

Vega Toroid


Calda Toroid


Sola Toroid


Crisma Toroid


Lazulite Toroid

Toroids are rare resources that can be acquired from enemies or in caves as a rare item in Orb Vallis. Presumably the power sources for various Corpus Raknoids on the Vallis, these items act as either a normal pickup when dropped by enemies, or as an interactable object if found in caves. Just like Sentient Cores are traded with The Quills, all Toroids can be traded with Vox Solaris.

The components of GarudaIcon272 Garuda, BaruukIcon272 Baruuk, and HildrynIcon272 Hildryn require Toroids to craft. Specific Toroids and their values, along with additional recipes that require them can be found on the Toroids' respective pages.

Gathering TipsEdit

Common ToroidsEdit

  • Vega Toroid: Drops from enemies around/inside the Spaceport. Has a 1% chance to drop from Mite Raknoids.
    • The Exploiter Orb will drop a large number of Mite Raknoids during her first stage whenever she moves across the battlefield
  • Calda Toroid: Drops from enemies around/inside the Enrichment Labs. Has a 20% chance to drop from Scyto Raknoid.
    • Doing all of a Profit Taker Phase 2 bounty but not turning it in will endlessly spawn Corpus dropships. You don't even need to let the beacons hit Alert Level 4 since the drop ships will bring plenty of enemies.
  • Sola Toroid - Drops from enemies around/inside the Temple of Profit. Has a 20% chance to drop from Kyta Raknoids.
    • Go inside the target area. Try to get one of the enemies to put down a Reinforcement Beacon. Wait until the beacon hits Alert Level 4. From this point, unlimited enemies will spawn. They will increase in level very quickly, but will eventually hit a level cap that is based on the bounty tier, and stop increasing further.
  • Vega, Calda, and Sola Toroids can also be found as interactable pick-ups, similar to Ayatan Sculptures, in many (17) caves throughout Orb Vallis.
    • 17 confirmed spots by visual observation. All of them are located in secluded part of caves, unlike Tepa Nodule which can be found all over the caves.
    • Possible number of Toroids spawned per run is zero to seven, 2-4 as average chance.
  • Farm Frames - NekrosIcon272 Nekros' Desecrate130xDark Desecrate, KhoraIcon272 Khora's Mod TT 20pxPilfering StrangledomeHydroidIcon272 Hydroid's Mod TT 20pxPilfering SwarmAtlasIcon272 AtlasMod TT 20pxOre Gaze, and IvaraIcon272 Ivara's Prowl130xDark Prowl can increase the chances to drop from enemies located at any of the 3 large Corpus bases.

Orb ToroidsEdit

Drop ChancesEdit


  • In concept art, Toroids are referred to as "Arachnoid Power Cells"
  • It could be speculated that toroids are Corpus-modified or synthetic sentient cores, giving raknoids sentience while still being subservient to the Corpus. This would explain the Quills interest in these devices and the Profit-Taker and Exploiter Orb's ability to speak and think.
  • In real life, toroidal transformers are pairs of donut-shaped, magnetic rings wrapped in wire used to increase or decrease voltage. In the same vein, toroids could be responsible for generating the advanced shields utilized by raknoids.
