Can You Save During A Dive In Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor?

Dives can take up a bit of time in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor, so if you need to leave one half-way is it possible to save your progress?

Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor has a lot of the typical elements of roguelikes and auto-shooters, in that you'll need to steadily improve your characters and stats in order to fully complete a run and kill the Dreadnought. But to do this, you'll need to complete a run (or dive) in one go. 

The problem here is that you might not always have the time for a full dive and will need to leave one unfinished. But can you save during a dive so you can leave without losing all your progress? Here's what you need to know.

Can You Save & Quit A Run In Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor?

Unfortunately, no. You can't save your progress in the middle of a run or dive in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor. You can quit a dive at any time, but you'll lose all the progress you made, including any gems and ore you've mined and weapon progression.

The only way to keep the progress you've made and still end the run is to die, but that means you won't be able to pick up from where you left off. You'll be restarting the run from the very beginning. But, this might not be a bad option, especially if you managed to unlock Overclocks on a weapon during that particular run. 

Dives typically don't take that long to complete. Every event is triggered by a timer, so you'll always activate the Elite or Dreadnought by a certain time. 

And that's everything you need to know about saving during a run/dive in Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor. Be sure to also check out our guide on how to unlock every weapon in the game to give yourself the best chances of success.
