    I had this issue too. There is a meditation point just ahead of where the bird is standing. I quit the game after saving and reloaded at that spot and it was scannable for me after a few tries.

     

    omg thank you so much for this, it was driving me crazy! i had the exact same issue and it wouldn't let me scan it.

    for me it was actually enough to simply rest at that next meditation point and jump back down, the scan prompt showed up immediately! now i only have to wait for the terrarium to grow :)

  5. Currently playing through supernova with a lone-wolf 2h melee, heavy armor type character, working out quite well so far, but the lack of dialogue and other "secondary" skills is a bit annoying sometimes. But if you mostly wanna speedrun through it you can always just murder everyone i guess :P

     

    Btw i made a habit out of kinda circumventing the "no (quick)saves" thing on supernova by fast-traveling back to my ship often and immediately reloading the latest save once i arrive in my ship. The game actually autosaves where you left off, so you can make yourself a checkpoint/autosave this way.

    If there is another transition area near, this is obviously even faster, especially indoors.

     

    Overall a fantastic game, having a blast so far!

  6. as i mentioned in another thread it popped for me without a problem even by only crafting like 5 sets at a time and then selling them again to get my money back, craft the next five and so on.

    First of all make sure that you really crafted BOTH arms and legs for every set, the entry for the leg/arm should change its color once you do so. If it still doesn't work i would make a backup save and then try to sell all (or a bunch of) armor sets to a vendor and simply craft them again from the top down. You basically get all your scrap back and if you have some high tier mats you should be able to break those down to plenty of MK1 to craft more!

     

    good luck!

  7. You can increase your battery count by simply investing in your "Energy" stat. The fourth batt is reached relatively quickly, but the fifth will take some more investment.

    You can increase the number of Battery Slots if you spend enough module points on Energy. You can reach 4 Battery slots by spending 25 module points and 5 Battery slots by spending 75 module points.

    Personally i invested in Energy rather late and went for more stamina first, which helped me a ton with learning the parries and dodging.

    Instead of starting another thread i'll just ask here. Do you really have to focus to find the 20 full sets or are alot of the just from cutting limbs off?Also for the 50 weapons do you need quests and such done or are the main part from just severing right arms?

    to be perfectly honest, i unfortunately can't really answer you any of those two questions, because i'm quite "OCD" when it comes to those type of games, especially the Surge because i was aware of the crafting mechanic (cutting limbs) from the first game.


    I essentially went ahead and cut the armored arm (mostly right one) of ANY new enemy i encountered first, so that plus all the boss' weapons, the weapons trophy came more or less automatically in the later half of the game for me.

    After i got the weapon of any new enemy(-type) i started cutting from the head down and when it actually got a new set of armor, most of the time i even went out of my way to respawn this enemy and get the full set asap. If you do this methodically from the very start of the game it doesn't really take all that much time at all and you get armor sets in no time. I also bought all armor sets available at vendors towards the end of the game.

    I didn't really keep track, but now that i think about it i'm pretty sure that even with all that i JUST barely had those 20 sets needed when the trophy finally popped, so a bit of farming may definitely be required for that one.

     

    good luck!

    The only story related drone module I had to reacquire in NG+ was the Starfish which comes fairly early in the game. Even if you missed something, you don't have to do 2 full playthroughs unless you don't use a backup save for the ending choice. 

     

    Ah, alright, good to know then. Perhaps it just seemed that way in my NG+, since i was actually missing some story related ones anyway and it only popped when i reacquired ALL of them. I guess i was actually just missing the last one or whatever.

    So best course of action for OP would be to simply continue and get them all in NG+, hoping that the trophy pops as early as possible ;)

  11. Just as a side-note: You don't have to have all sets ON you at once, you simply have to craft them. 

    The way i did it was simply craft as many whole sets as i could afford and then sell them back to a vendor. Not 100% sure but i think i even got a full refund basically. With that money back i simply crafted the next X sets, until the trophy popped.

    And since you only need the MK1 materials for crafting and i did all that basically at the point of no return, i had more than enough MK8-10 mats to break down for crafting, since they double with every step you break them down. I basically had to do NO farming for scrap or mats whatsoever for the crafting trophy ;)

  12. i had the same problem and simply got all the drones in NG+, since i was missing some missable ones anyway. 

    If you do get them in NG+ you definitely have to get the missable ones (story/boss related) again, tho!

     

    Afaik you can do another quest for/with Rex later in the Cathedral of the Spark level where you have to free him, after that he is supposed to turn up at this Camp Bravo site where he will be available as a vendor again. But i just read that somewhere and didn't try/confirm it for myself.

  13. you basically just have to follow the quest-line of Kyle Baxter in Cloud9 Bar and "team up" with him in the cathedral level. After that he is injured and you have to send him back to base, where you can get the whole set.

    I guess this video does a better job describing it:

     

     

    good luck! :)

    Nice trick but not sure why this would be needed on an extreme run. I finished my run perfectly fine as a tech character, so duping items is not really needed tbh. But probably helpful for some!

    The tech class (so guns and traps) is basically already OP as it is, true. But if someone just reeeaaally wanna get it over as quickly as possible, this might still be of help ;)

    Or just for a quick nth playthrough to mop up some trophys or whatever. I always like having the option to cut grinding short like this in either case.

  15. Hi everyone, 

    Just wanted to quickly let you know that the dupe glitch from technomancer and many other games that have a similar stash system is back.

    So if you wanna get the extreme run quickly done or simply wanna cut down on some grinding, this may be for you.

     

    Go to your stash (camp, your home in every city etc) and put one or two of the items you wanna dupe into the stash and then switch one category to the left or right and put the items you have the most of into the stash, too. The two items have to be "next" to each other basically and when you switch over with L1 or R1 the duping item has to be selected by default. So it would be best to only have those two items in the stash when you're doing it.

    Starting on the item you have many of, press L1 (or R1) and X simultaneously. You know it worked when you get the popup dialogue to retrieve your many items from the stash, but in the background you should see the other tab with the item to dupe highlighted. If you confirm this dialogue you will retrieve the high amount of the duping item out of your stash, instead of the other one.

    For example i usually put 2 ammo into the stash and all my leather (100+). Highlight the leather, press L1 and X, get 100 ammo, repeat if necessary and profit...

     

    This can be perfectly combined with a totally overpowered Technician build where you only use guns and traps. I guess they made it stronger to compensate for the gold/item investment, but since this is not a problem anymore you can just spam bullets and magic plus stasis bombs (throwing phials) until everything is dead, similar to this:

    Currently doing it this way to get the stupid extreme difficulty run done and then do my real, legit run afterwards.

     

    Seems you can't dupe gold directly, but just dupe the most expensive thing you got and sell it. Seems the vendors don't have a budget and you can sell as many things as you want.

     

    Hope the explanation was clear enough and most people should remember this kind of exploit from many other games with a stash anyway, but perhaps I'll link a quick video later if someone has problems.

    The timing is a bit precise, you really have to press both buttons at the same time or it won't work. Just try and you'll eventually get it ;)

     

    Otherwise fantastic game so far, already loved bound by flame and the technomancer but it seems this is their best work yet. Really just don't like difficulty trophies in semi-long rpgs like this, so i looked for a way around the extreme mode.

     

    Have fun!

  21. Just tried this yesterday evening and it worked flawlessly with my turbo controller while i grabbed some dinner 😁

     

    Normally i try to not abuse exploits like this TOO hard, but i think i would've never come back to the game at all otherwise, so i check that off as a positive thing. Plus i don't even need to think about actually buying boosters from the store... win-win.

    Only problem now: All enemies are scaled up to my level but i still have my level 15 gear and everything kills me in two hits, haha. Guess i have to get some new gear first ;)
