Description

Biomaterial is one of the three main types of resources in Firefall. Like most materials for crafting, it is looted in raw form, then refined at a molecular printer station for use in crafting.

Crafting Components

The crafting components created from raw biomaterials can be used to manufacture new equipment or can be sold on the market for credits. Raw Biomaterials are refined into crafting components at the Molecular Printer. There is a 1:1 refining ratio from raw biomaterial to crafting component. Example: 20 Bone Fragments = 20 Carbon Powder

Biomaterial comes in different rarities and tiers, depending on the exact area and zone where creatures drop it.

Drops by Region

Coral Forest

Coral Forest is the best place to find Tier 1 and Tier 2 biomaterials.

Sertao

The biomaterials found in Sertao are the same as in the Coral forest with the addition of Tier 3 biomaterials

Devil's Tusk

Devil's Tusk has all of the same biomaterials as Coral Forest and Sertao, but with the addition of Tier 4 biomaterials.

Optional Components

Certain creatures drop special components for equipment. These Optional Biomaterials are not refineable and are not dropped as frequently as the regular biomaterials. Recipe Unlocks from certain Vendors will require these optional components for Manufacturing. Example: The Barrier HMG for the Dreadnaught requires Brontodon Ivory in its recipe.
