- Inventory description

Overview Edit

Contrary to Anomaly Detectors Anomalous Activity Detectors do not discover anomalies and radiation but artefacts.

To use an Anomalous Activity Detectors the player has to attach the detector to the belt first. Only one anomalous activity detector can be attached to the belt at the same time. Pressing O on the keyboard will put the detector into the player's left hand and activate the artefact search mode.

The Detector "Echo" indicates nearby artefacts by a beeping sound and a flashing light. The frequency of the beeps and the flashes is an indicator of the distance to the artefact, the closer the artefact is the higher is the frequency.

Notes Edit

  • In common with all devices of this type, auto-attaches to the belt if there is a free slot available when being picked up.
  • The detector is pretty useless in basic condition, so plan to upgrade it immediately.
  • As upgrading the detection range is very expensive choosing the right technician is crucial.
