Description[edit | edit source]
Objectives[edit | edit source]
- Assist at the APEX terminal
- Gather intel on enemies (0/20)
Notes[edit | edit source]
The technology of Research Data (RD) awarded depends on the origin of the enemy scanned. For example, an asari Pariah provides Milky Way RD, a Roekaar Saboteur provides Heleus RD, and a Remnant Destroyer provides Remnant RD.
It should be noted that each variant of an enemy will count towards the mission. A Collective Raider, an Outlaw Raider, and a Roekaar Raider are each considered a unique enemy and each one will reward RD when scanned even though they are all considered a "Raider". Scan every enemy variant when first encountered to make sure that you get the most RD possible.
The Adhi, the Fiend, and the Wraith are creatures but these three are classified as enemies and not creatures. This means that scanning them will not count towards the mission Task: Comparatively Alien. Instead, these three enemies count towards Aid APEX when scanned.
Scanning new enemies after completing the mission still earns research data.
There is a bug with the objective Optional: Blow engine or Gas them or Disable Hydra Armor in Vetra Nyx: Means and Ends. If you have previously scanned a Hydra at any time before this objective, you will not be able to successfully scan the Hydra using the security camera scanner. The Hydra will show up as the light yellow color of already scanned. This makes the choice Disable Hydra Armor unavailable but the other two choices can still be obtained. It is unclear how or when this bug was added but this bug still occurs as of the final patch Update 1.10.
Research Opportunities[edit | edit source]
- +50 RD for each enemy on scanned for a total of +1000 RD - Types will depend upon the exact enemies scanned.
- Every new enemy variant past the required 20 enemies will award an additional +50 RD.
