If Ryder speaks with the Irritated Researcher first -
A Voeld scientist is complaining about some kind of interference with his equipment.

If SAM alerts Ryder to the signal nearby first -
An unknown source is causing interference with Voeld's communication equipment. Clear communication is important to Voeld's viability. Any possibility that the kett are somehow tapping in to communications should be investigated.

A strange meteorite appears to be the source of the communication interference. It must be dealt with.

Acquisition Edit

This mission can be acquired by two different methods:

Walkthrough Edit

Examine The Equipment Edit

Note: This objective is only shown in game if acquired at Hjara Station.
Examine the equipment next to the researcher. SAM detects a faint regular pattern in the signal, indicating it could be potential kett interference, which must be investigated.

Search For Interference Source Edit

The source turns out to be a meteorite emitting radiation that disturbs communication signals.

Defeat Ahdi Edit

Defeat the attacking pack of Wild Adhi.

Scan Meteorite Edit

SAM can modify Ryder's omni tool so it will dampen the disturbing radiation.

Neutralize Signal Edit

Interact with the meteorite. Another pack of wild adhi has to be killed. Interact with the meteorite again to dampen the signal.

Examine Meteorite Edit

It turns out to be a meteorite that has picked up some traces of the Scourge.

Ryder then has to decide what to do with the meteorite: send it to the Nexus to be studied, or leave it on the planet, citing it as too dangerous.

Aftermath Edit

If the meteorite is sent to the Nexus, Ryder receives a mail from Chief Lucan.

Curious Voeld Rock
To: Ryder
From: Chief Lucan


This rock you found is certainly something. As far as I can tell, it's a remnant of a meteoroid that passed through the Scourge before falling to Voeld, infusing it with a similar charge. The presence of Heleus-native metallic elements within the rock may have allowed for such a transfer. I'm unsure why the adhi reacted to it the way they did.

I've stored it in a lead-lined box. It unnerves me.
