Unregistered Comms Beacon

Postby NeoWave Interleave » Fri Feb 17, 2017 8:35 am

I've noticed there is an unregistered communications beacon around Capitol in Archenar. Without spoilers, does this do something?

Thanks!

Interesting. I've never come across one of those. You'll have to let us know :)

I've never seen one either. Is it like a Nav Beacon, does anything happen when you scan it?

It's odd. When you approach it all it's detail tabs are blank, I guess that's because it's 'unregistered' and the normal scanner doesn't work on it and shooting it does nothing. I'm going to take each type of scanner to it & just try them as I can' t think of anything else to try. I'll post a video of my likely failure! :)

"Without spoilers"? LOL. Yes, they do something. IMO, not worth your time though.

Okay, hmmm… I'll give it another shot or two but might cave in and google it!… anyway, here's a video of what I found out there. I could hear something garbled but couldn't make out what it was… and it was so low you can't really hear it on the video so here's 15mins of your life to waste if you want!… :)
