Argon Crystal Farming

Argon Crystal is the only resource in this game that you can’t hoard, it disappears from your inventory after 24 hours. This resource generally drops from the Orokin Void tileset and a few assassination targets.

Void based radioactive resource that decays every day it is out of the Void. – in game description

Argon Crystal farming is unreliable, there are times when you go farming for 20 minutes and you don’t find a single argon and there are times when you find 5-10 within a run of 5 minutes. The perfect squad for farming this resource in Void would be, a Speed Nova, a Pilfering Swarm Hydroid, a Desecrate Nekros and a Energy Vampire Trinity for unlimited energy and ulti spam. Keep in mind that the squad combo is best for running missions such as Survival and Defense.

Blueprints that require Argon Crystals

I have only listed a few things in the game that require this resource, the list is large and I only remember a few of the parts.

  • Arca Titron
  • Dragon Nikana
  • Hydroid Prime Chassis
  • Limbo Prime Chassis
  • Nekros Prime Chassis
  • Oberon Prime Systems
  • Valkyr Prime Chassis
  • Vauban Prime Chassis
  • Zhuge
  • Pandero
  • Trinity Prime Chassis

How To Get It

There are multiple ways by which you can increase your chances of getting argon to drop. Whatever worked for me might not work for you as it is all dependent on RNG.

Whenever farming for a resource I recommend users to make a squad. The squad should consist of a Pilfering Hydroid and a Desecration Nekros. Along with that, run a resource booster and use Smeeta Kavat to boost your resource drop rate further.

  1. Best Method – Head to Void Exterminate or Capture Missions and complete it, check around and make sure to break any Argon Deposits which will grant you multiple argon crystals. This is the fastest mission and doesn’t require a squad.
  2. Void Survival – Use the squad tip given above and run this mission for farming multiple crystals.
  3. Void Defense – Use the squad tip given above and run this mission for farming multiple crystals.
  4. Weekly Ayatan Sculpture Mission – The mission granted by Maroo is a good place to farm the crystals, only if the tileset is Void.
