There are plenty of side activities in the game and one of them will have you break open a hardened ore patch. In this guide, we are going to walk you through how you can break the hardened ore patch so that you can get the valuable ore in Everspace 2.
How To Break hardened Ore Patch In Everspace 2
There is a massive asteroid that will be the center of the stage. Inside there is plenty of ore and a reflecting panel. Before you head in, scout the area. You will find some large lasers going into smaller asteroids. One of them is going to have an explosive canister on it.
You will be notified of the right one with the “Rigged Asteroid” notification on your HUD. Get close enough to activate the 5 canisters. After you have activated the first one, you will have a few seconds to get to the others before the objective fails. Activate all five in the time allotted in order to blow the asteroid.
After this, you can head over to the larger asteroid. Once you spot the reflecting panel you need to get close enough to interact with it and grab it. Once you have got it fly outside to the other side of the asteroid and go to the hardened ore patch that you need to break in Everspace 2.
Position yourself halfway down the laser and then use the reflecting panel to target the ore patch that you need to break. This will break the ore patch and you will then be able to collect the ore and complete the location.
This is how you can break the hardened ore patch in Everspace 2. If you are interested in learning more about the game then you can check out our guide on how you can dismantle items in the game. You can also check out our Everspace 2 guides hub for more content related to the game.
