Material In Metalwork Station

Molten Core is a guaranteed drop from the Penguin UFO (tier 1 boss). It is a component of the Metalwork Station, which is needed to craft the Starmap Upgrade MK2, which is used to get to the Beta Sector.

The Penguin UFO will always drop 5 Molten Cores. Since the Metalwork Station only requires 1 Molten Core, a team of 5 players will be able to progress together by defeating the boss only once.

The Molten Core looks like a metal canteen filled with lava.

    • Cool. Relief to hear. Look forward to progressing further in the game with my next character.
    • Till I dealt with penguins, molten core disappeared -- nice. :( And new beacon doesnt spawn boss anymore. :(
