A Datacore was a dense, orange, triangle shaped object that were wrapped in metal and were used to store Furon Technology. Datacores were sturdy enough to survive atmospheric entry, as they landed on Earth after the Furon Mothership was destroyed. 17 Datacores were scattered all over Locations, and were recovered by Crypto 138 due to the fact that almost all of them contained weapons. Gastro even used one to shelter his record collection. One of those Datacores contained information on the Blisk, whiich unlocked more upgrades to Crypto's Weapons and increased their effectiveness against the Blisk. In Destroy All Humans! 2, Datacores were collected during or after certain missions as a reward and other times they were optional, and had to be found by scouting Invasion Sites. In Destroy All Humans! Big Willy Unleashed, Datacores were automatically given to Crypto throughout the game without being picked up.
