Updated: 28 September 2013 for Patch 0.7.1710
Here’s a handy cheatsheet to show you the way Firefall resources are organised.
- The top-level groupings – Mineral, Gas and Organic – are called Groups.
- Each group is divided into two Families. Minerals include Metals and Composites; Gases include Reactive and Inert Gases; Organics include Biomaterials and Enzymes.
The resource listed for each battleframe is associated with that frame for progression. It used to be the case that you needed bulk quantities of that resource to simply unlock progression boxes. Now you can use more generalised resources (any Mineral for Mass unlocks, any Gas for Power unlocks and any Organic for CPU unlocks), but you still need substantial quantities of your frame’s associated resource to create the progression tokens necessary to unlock the final three boxes of each progression tree.
(If you haven’t played for a couple of months, you might be surprised to notice the new resource names. Don’t worry, there hasn’t been a resource wipe since Patch 0.6 in March – all your old resources have been automatically converted over at a 1:1 ratio. Check our handy conversion cheat sheet to see what’s what.)
