You've discovered a Remnant data cache the scavengers have tampered with. SAM can piece together its data if you locate additional caches.

Starts when Ryder finds and scans the first Remnant data cache at a Remnant site on Elaaden.

Walkthrough Edit

Locate Data Caches Edit

Find and scan three more useful data caches. Some of them are so degraded they are not useful.

The locations are randomized. If a site doesn't have a data cache, it might have one the next time Pathfinder Ryder visits.

Verified sites:

  • Paradise Sands - Southwest corner of the map, southwest of the giant sink hole there is a small Remnant ruin with Scourge.
  • Sea of Ataraxia - Head south of the westernmost Forward Station, large Remnant ruins with Scourge, south of tall rock formation.
  • Languish - Northeast of the central giant rock formation.
  • Gehenna Valley - Halfway between the initial landing site The Paradise and the central giant rock.
  • A small site with a tree stub a little northwest from Paradise Sands and a bit southwest of where three paths meet.
  • A Remnant site a little south of the Northeastern Monolith.
  • The large Remnant site southwest of the Western Monolith.
  • The large Remnant site close to the mining zone north of the westernmost Forward Station.

Enter The Remnant Facility Edit

SAM has extracted an entrance code for an intriguing Remnant location. There may be something of value inside. The facility is located in the far northeast region of the Sea of Ataraxia.

Note: It is advised to make a save before entering, because inside the facility several bugs may be experienced. Reloading from this save usually solves the problem.

Acquire The Remnant Data Edit

Defeat the Outlaws in the Gravity Well room. There are a number of small lootable containers to be found though out this entire Remnant facility. Search each area to find these containers.

Proceed along the corridor. There is a puzzle-locked container. Solving the puzzle counts towards the Cryptographer Achievement. For the puzzle solution, see here.

The big door should open automatically when Ryder approaches.

In the next room there is a Remnant Destroyer in combat with Outlaws and their Hydra. Defeat the leftover enemies.

In the innermost room, there are two Adaptive Remnant Core Devices that Ryder can scan for a total of +200 Rd icon remnant orange, and then the mission completes.

Rewards Edit

Bugs Edit
