Crystal Core is the middle armor of Goliaths and no, Yetis don't have them. What Yetis have are Snow/Flame/Mad/Electric Crystals.
When battling Goliaths, full scratch the middle armor after destroying its outer barrier then, apply direct damage. It's instant kill even if it's not the main body that you destroyed PLUS you always get a Crystal Core.
