Notes[edit | edit source]

There are three locations for the objective Destroy a power generator. The first location that Ryder destroys the Kett Security Console is always worth +540 XP and the remaining ones are worth +270 XP. The location nearby Bain Massani's bunker with an objective marker will satisfy the objective when the Kett Security Console is destroyed but Ryder comments the kett must have more of this equipment on Eos. This isn't explained any further, and as the next objective appears, these additional locations can easily be missed. There is no requirement to hunt these other locations down but each location gives an additional +270 XP as well as encounter XP for killing the kett enemies at the location.

At each location for the objective Destroy a power generator, there is a possibility that the kett enemies will spawn inside of the building in a section that can't be reached. There are no hidden doors or other methods to get into these sections. The only way to receive the encounter XP is to kill all of the kett but this isn't possible if they can't be reached. The solution to this problem is to select the Infiltrator profile and to look through the scope of a firearm. This will highlight the kett in a red outline. It is then possible to see where the enemies are located and to use a firearm with a receiver mod attached to pierce through the wall. This allows Ryder to kill the final kett enemies and get the encounter XP reward.

The XP for completing the objective Destroy the barracks has problems. This appears to be an encounter XP award instead of a fixed amount as the XP increases with Ryder's increasing level but it doesn't work correctly with XP increasing armor. Using this armor actually lowers the XP by a significant amount.
