EXO Biofuel Obtainment Operation[]

New plant species have been detected on Atrox which are capable of generating potential biofuels from other flora. This species – designated “Cauldrangea” – appears to only appear for a short period of time. Beware that these Cauldrangea are protected by new dangerous Hazards.

Astroneers are asked to harvest specific ingredients for the Cauldrangea to… digest… and send the plant’s output in stages. EXO Dynamics will reward these efforts with new cosmetics and useful items along the way. Points are only given for the stage you're currently on – braving the wilds of Atrox is better with friends!

  • “Hallowed Helm” Hat - Rewarded for completing the Squasholine Stage
  • “Endless” Visor - Rewarded for completing the Attapetrol Stage
