Research Items are a collection of Medium objects. They come in a wide variety, differing in shape, color, and locations where they can be found. They are used in a Research Chamber to gain bytes, which are used to unlock better and more useful items.

Technology Research Items[edit | edit source]

Technology research items are found inside of EXO Dynamics Research Aids and around satellite wrecks. They share the same aesthetic as items crafted by players, implying they come from EXO Dynamics as well.

Mineral Research Items[edit | edit source]

Mineral research items are found on or around rock formations on the various planets and are the most abundant of the research item types. Mineral research items typically resemble rocks, sometimes with different colored rocks or crystals sticking out of them, or some being clusters of rocks or crystals.

Organic Research Items[edit | edit source]

Organic research items are found on top of or under plants on every planet. They appear with less rigid edges than mineral items have, being rounded, with most having plant-like protrusions on their surfaces that react to the wind like Flora.
