However, if you want a detailed explanation of every key detail throughout the entire questline, follow along with me as I walk you through each part of the questline in a step-by-step manner.

  2. You can pretty much aim the first one anywhere and keep in mind that the tracking data will drop after you hit the cable enemies.
  3. In my experience, the best place I’ve gone to is to accomplish the goal faster. Ahimsa Park, Where you can sometimes get enough cable to farm and complete the first objective in minutes.
  4. Additionally, you can also go into Hydroponics Delta and Gilded Percept Lost sectorsWhich has tons of cables running around to get the Vex tracking data.

  3. Again, you pretty much repeat the previous objective steps here, as you’ll need to defeat the three Shield Harpies along with the incoming Vex enemies.
