Larval Core is a curiosity.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Larval Core is a curiosity that drops when a Whispering Egg is destroyed. It will disappear if not picked up within a few seconds of spawning.

Game description[edit | edit source]

A pulsating jellied orb, this gooey sphere is warm to the touch. Its stench triggers a primal fear in mortal beings, a deep-seated gnawing that begs you to drop it and flee.

Warning[edit | edit source]

Destroying a Whispering Egg will spawn a large number of immediately hostile Biological Horrors from the ground surrounding the egg.

Please refer to the creature page for further tactical information.

Harvesting[edit | edit source]

There are several ways to harvest Larval Cores.

  • Team up with a partner, and have one member of the party use starship weapons to destroy the eggs. No Horrors will spawn.
  • Claim a base near the nests, then construct walls around one nest. Break a different egg's nest, and rush back to your walled nest. The walled nest is now safe for harvesting, as no Horrors can enter, and none will spawn inside.
  • Use a Terrain Manipulator to tunnel underneath the nest. The eggs will fall into the tunnel, and the Horrors do not follow.
  • Set the Terrain Manipulator to create mode, Set it to generate a large square rock, and then enclose yourself and the eggs in a very small completely enclosed rock room (close the roof!). The aliens spawn a few feet away, so when you open the eggs they can not get to you and you can harvest all of them freely, wait for the aliens to de-spawn and then break out using the destroy mode of the manipulator.
  • Since Whispering Eggs spawn around Abandoned Buildings, it is possible to harvest one and run inside the building for safety and wait until the swarm has subsided.
  • Alternatively, after breaking an egg, harvest the core immediately and use the jetpack to escape to the roof and wait until the swarm subsides, then repeat the operation.

Refining[edit | edit source]

Larval Core is used as an ingredient for refining the following products:

Additional information[edit | edit source]
