Scanning the planet yields the following audio transmission:
“Repeat. There's a piece of crap mech on this planet's surface. If you think you can get it to work, you're freakin' welcome to it *static* -welcome to it.”
Scanning the planet yields the following text:
“Surface scans detect one YMIR Heavy Mech signature matching an unknown (possibly pirate) registration. Mech appears to be disabled but broadcasting a looping message. Message does not appear to be a distress signal. Resource scans indicate large quantities of mineral resources available but obscured behind walls of dense stone.”
Since combat in this mission involves a single pair of varren, the only preparation note is that if you'd like to experiment in absolute safety with an unfamiliar weapon, power, or squadmate, now's your chance.
Walkthrough EditHarrot on Omega and apparently has power problems. Because of this, the previous owner left a trail of power cells that lead to some valuable resources at the other end of the canyon. Grab the first power cell and insert it into the mech and it begins its walk. It will shoot through the canyon wall and keep moving. Follow the mech picking up power cells when necessary to keep it moving.
About halfway through the mission you will encounter two varren that are hovering over a power cell. They are very easy to eliminate, so do so, and then retrieve the power cell they were hovering over. When you reach the end of the canyon, insert the last power cell and get away from the mech. When it destroys the final wall, its arms explode, then the rest of the mech self-destructs as well. Head into the chamber the YMIR revealed and recover the resources in it to end the mission.
Disabled Mech Edit
- The mech may sometimes become stuck in an upright or a crouched position, making it impossible to progress. If you load the latest auto save, the robot will be in a crouched position again and ready for a new power cell.
Recovered buried cache of resources. YMIR Mech unsalvageable.
