|LEGO Rock Raiders|
- This is a summary of the original PS1 intro, seen here: 
The Rock Raiders are onboard their ship, the LMS Explorer, returning home from a mission. A large meteorite collides with the ship and knocks it within range of a black hole. The crew tries to escape, but another, larger meteorite is detected in their path, causing a panic. Their commander, Chief, settles them down as they brace for impact.
The meteorite damages the ship before they are sucked into the black hole and emerge in a distant part of the universe. Chief orders Sparks to scan the area, who finds a large source of Power Crystals on a nearby planet. Chief sends Jet and Docs to the planet to begin a mining operation.
Most missions require the player to collect a certain amount of Power Crystals, while some missions require the player to rescue Rock Raiders that have been trapped by rockslides or other dangers. Some missions combine both of these objectives.
At the end of each mission, players receive either a Bronze Medal (minimum required objectives complete), a Silver Medal (most objectives complete), or a Gold Medal (all objectives complete). The objectives vary between the NTSC and PAL versions.
There are eighteen campaign missions and six multiplayer missions in the NTSC version. The PAL version includes eighteen one-player and two-player missions, and three one-player bonus missions that are accessible after every mission in the campaign is completed to Gold Medal standard.
Tools & Equipment
- Pusher Beam: A device that fires a green force field which pushes foes away. The default amount of ammo is 10 units.
- Pusher Beam PowerCell: Basic, green-colored ammunition pickups for the Pusher Beam. Restores 10 units of ammo.
- 'Freezer Beam: This device can freeze any foe it hits. Shots are fired in an arc surrounding the Rock Raider. The default amount of ammo is 10 units.
- Freezer Beam PowerCell: Has the same function as the Pusher Beam's PowerCell, but is colored blue to fit the Freezer Beam.
- Laser Beam: This beam fires a laser blast, capable of destroying any type of breakable rock or enemy. The default amount of ammo is 5 units. Some vehicles feature this gun as a mounted weapon.
