The Object Scanner is used to scan the nearby area for objects of interest once they have been researched at the M.A.M.. After selecting a scan target from the radial menu, the light atop the scanner will glow and blink the same color as the object you have selected once one is detected. When looking in the general direction of the detected target, the normal static sound produced by object scanner will fade and be replaced by a beeping that gets progressively more rapid the closer you are to the object.

  • **Points to enemies' corpses as well (until they despawn).

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Generally the object scanner would guide you to the item, provided you frequently turns around and walking towards the strongest beep.
  • There are occasions that the beep is the strongest but nothing can be found. In this case, there might be a cave below you or the overhang above you. Find your way there.
