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.
This mission can be acquired by two different methods:
- Speak to the Irritated Researcher (marked with a) in Hjara Station.
- SAM will alert Pathfinder Ryder to a signal interfering with communications equipment if Ryder gets close enough to the source.
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.
- One node is in a small building next to Janleth.
- One node is on a higher ledge in the northern part of Hjara Station near the Merchant.
Search For Interference Source Edit
Head north-northwest of Techiix to find the meteorite near a small bluff on the edge of the frozen lake. The source turns out to be a meteorite emitting radiation that disturbs communication signals.
Defeat Adhi Edit
A large pack of Wild Adhi will come rushing to the area. Defeat the attacking pack of Wild Adhi.
Scan Meteorite Edit
Scan the meteorite. SAM can modify Ryder's omni-tool so it will dampen the disturbing radiation.
Neutralize Signal Edit
Interact with the meteorite to try and dampen the signal. Ryder will find that this is a very slow process and another pack of Wild Adhi will attack. Defeat them. After the battle, interact with the meteorite again to dampen the signal. This time the dampening process is much faster.
Examine Meteorite Edit
A cutscene starts with Ryder and SAM having a discussion about the meteorite. It turns out to be a meteorite that has picked up some traces of the Scourge.
The mission then ends.
If the meteorite is sent to the Nexus, Ryder receives a mail from Chief Lucan.
