Destroying cube monsters can net players valuable resources, but those same cube monsters also pose a threat to player safety and can disrupt your plans when taking on the enemy. Farming resources and floor loot, ammo, and chest rates have all been increased, too. Still, that increase to floor loot spawns should allow you to get well enough equipped to fight the Cube Monsters and get some better weapons.
