Sunbeam Crystal is a crafting material, used to make all Star Level 5 weapons. Sunbeam Crystals are required to craft Tier 5 Regular Sunbeam Weapons (Power Level 116-130) and Supercharged Tier 5 Sunbeam Weapons (Power Level 133-144).

What Missions to Start

  • Sunbeam Crystals can only be obtained in Twine Peaks. They are not available to find in early Twine Peaks (Power Level 76 - 88 missions) as only Tier 3 and 4 crafting materials can spawn in those zones. Sunbeam Crystals and all Tier 5 Crafting Materials will be available to find from Power Level 94 missions all the way up to Power Level 160 missions.
  • Don't worry about what missions to do or not to do, Sunbeam Crystals can be obtained in any mission.

How to Obtain

  • Sunbeam Crystals can be found inside caves just like all other ores and crystals in game. Destroy them and you will receive 1-3 Sunbeam Crystals upon destroying them.
  • Sunbeam Crystals can be obtained by completing Expeditions. You will get 6-11 Sunbeam Crystals from a successful Expedition.
  • Sunbeam Crystals can be obtained as a reward from destroying an Encampment. Look for a Encampment that will reward crystals upon destroying the encampment. Destroying the Encampment will reward either Quartz Crystal, Shadowshard Crystals and Sunbeam Crystals. You will get 1-6 Quartz, Shadowshards or Sunbeam.
  • Sunbeam Crystals can be obtained from the "Salvage the Drone" event. This event is random and only happens if you have an additional 1-3 players in your lobby. If it happens in your game, it is the best to go and defend the drone as you will get Sunbeam Crystals as a reward after successfully defending the Drone. You usually will receive 1-5 Sunbeam Crystals. You will also get Shadowshard Crystals.
    • Be careful to not let the husks damage the drone as the more damage the drone takes, the less rewards you will get. If the husks destroy the drone before the defense ends, you will get nothing. It is best advised to have your team come and help defend the drone so that you will not struggle.
  • Sunbeam Crystals can sometimes be obtained by building a certain Radar Tower. Look for a Radar Tower that will reward crystals upon completing the radar. Completing the radar towers will give either Quartz Crystal, Shadowshard Crystals and Sunbeam Crystals. You will get 1-7 Quartz, Shadowshards and Sunbeam.
  • Sunbeam Crystals can sometimes be found from eliminating certain Husks and Mist Monsters. Eliminating Minibosses in Miniboss Mission Alerts also will have a chance to drop Sunbeam or Shadowshard Crystals. Takers, Blasters and Smashers have a chance to drop 1-3.
    • Nurses and Lobbers also can have a chance to drop them. They usually drop 1-2.
    • Minibosses can drop 1-4 Sunbeam Crystals.
  • Sunbeam Crystals can be obtained from completing/winning a mission. They are mostly common in Eliminate and Collect/Resupply Missions, although they can appear in normal missions like Fight the Storm or Ride the Lightning. Resupply / Eliminate and Collect Missions can yield 1-4 Crystals while normal missions can yield up to 14 Crystals maximum per mission.
  • Sunbeam Crystals can be obtained from Storm Chests. Try aiming for killing all 50 husks and the mist monsters as at the end, it can reward many loot that are great including Shadowshard Crystals. Storm Chests usually give 1-5 crystals.
    • Storm Chests also can give you weapons and sometimes, that weapon can be a Sunbeam or Brightcore weapon. You can recycle that weapon and receive additional Sunbeam Crystals.
