In the game world, you can gather resources from mineral deposits (or resource nodes), defeated mobs, and corpses of other avatars.
Resource nodes are objects found in the game world and contain valuable resources. These nodes come in various qualities and require the use of specific tools. The process of gathering resources from these nodes is called scanning.
Looting and scanning
After defeating a mob, you can loot it and also use a tool to scan its remains. Scanning takes some time during which you can't perform any other actions.
