A malfunctioning heavy mech has been left on the planet's surface, its owner having left to complain to the store where he got the mech. The mech has detected a large cache of resources in the canyon, but it needs some work before it can reach and excavate the resources.
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.”
Walkthrough EditYMIR Mech was bought from Harrot 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 sometimes gets stuck in an upright position after the power has been depleted, thus making it impossible to insert any new power cell. If you load the latest auto save the robot will be in a crouched position again and ready for a new power cell.
- Another bug is that the YMIR Mech gets stuck in the squat position, same fix as above.
- Almost the opposite happens in another bug where the mech is able to move but stuck in the "unpacked" position.
Recovered buried cache of resources. YMIR Mech unsalvageable.
