The Presage mission was introduced to the game during Season of the Chosen. It allows players to unlock secrets and read new lore items. You’ll want to spend some time finding all the scannables in the Presage mission if you are a huge lore fan like me.
Below is a complete listing of Presage scannables locations, and the order in which you should collect them.
All Locations of the Presage Scannables
The Presage mission has 15 scannables. However, you will not be able collect them all in one run. Each item is broken down into several batches.
To unlock the second batch, you’ll need the entire first batch. You did indeed read that right. The rest of the batch will not be available until you have collected the first batch. After the weekly reset, they will become active.
Answers to Figments
Part of the achievement Figments of an Answer is the first batch of Presage scannables that you can scan aboard a Glykon. You will find the first four scattered throughout the mission, while the fifth is located immediately after the boss fight. To unlock the final 6, you will need to collect them all.
1. Dead Cabal
After the first section of the jumping puzzle/maze, the Presage mission’s first scannable can be found. After entering the Glykon’s main area, you will need to go through the doors across from it. Once inside, destroy the spore sack and get the Eregore’s Link buff. Then, cross the Darkness barrier. The first scannable is the dead Cabal, which you will see hanging upside-down in front of your face.
2. Scorn Tether Shell
You will find the next scannable in the section that you first see the huge electrical barriers inside Presage. After dropping down, you can jump across the open space in front to reach the platform on either side. Then, go to the right hand side of the pillar and you will find the Tether Shell on the ground just before the next Darkness barrier.
3. Opulent Guardian Ship
The hangar contains the 3rd scannable, which is located at the halfway mark in Presage. After clearing out the Scorn, complete the encounter, you will find the ship along the far wall next to the hangar bay door that leads to the next area. The ship has the same design and motif as Season of Opulence, which suggests that it was being used for Calus’ purposes.
4. Dark Ether Canisters
The 4th scannable of Presage can be found immediately after the section of the laboratory with the elevated area that is enclosed by an electric barrier. You will need to turn the switch located near the Screeb’s jump. This will open a room that has a fuse in it. The fuse will be destroyed and the barrier will fall for approximately 5 seconds. This will allow you to jump into the room. You will find the Dark Ether Canisters through the doorway to your right.
5. Calus Hologram
After defeating the Locus Of Communion, head to the back left of the room to find a new corridor with pipes. Continue down the walkway and drop to the next level. Turn around and you will find a projection disk on the floor.
Another link in the Chain
Once you have collected all the scannables, your next batch will be available following the weekly reset. These 6 can be collected to earn the Another Link in the Chain victory.
6. Wall Terminal
Just after the first scannable, the 6th scannable can be found. The hanging Cabal is located on the left-hand side. Jump up onto the pipe and open the vent cover. The computer terminal will be to your left.
7. Cabal Scorpius Turret
Presage’s 7th scannable is located in the large, separated room with the electrical barriers. This is the central area with the hanging platform on the opposite side of the room. After you have entered this space, you will immediately turn to your left. The turret is located in the corner in front.
8. Cabal Incinerator
The Cabal Incineator can be found in the room immediately following the Hangar mini boss encounter. This room can be reached by jumping from platform to platform through the far hangar door. This hangar will have a Thresher docked and the incinerator located on the left side.
9. Laboratory Scorn
Once you have the Incinerator scannable you can make your way through access tunnels that lead to a shaft which drops into a laboratory. In the middle of the room, you’ll find a dead Scorn on top of a circular desk.
10. Dead Ghost
This is the last jumping puzzle with Presage’s double rotating platforms. This may be the same thing you found your first time around. If not, you can hang a right at the second rotating platform to find the ghost behind a pile.
The boss is the 11th scannable. Look at the Guardian or Dead Man’s Tale. Make a 180-degree turn and then hop off the catwalk. The Chalice will be under the Guardian on the far side, atop a heap of Cabal gold.
All the Broken Pieces
Once you have collected the first two, the last batch of scannables is available. Before you can scan the final four, you must scan all 11.
12. Combat Frame
You will find the first scannable of this batch in the same room as the electrical barrier that you found the Scorn Tether Shell. Turn around once you have landed in this room and enter the room through the huge doors. You will find a few exploding Screeb in this area so you need to deal with them first. After you have defeated them, get up on the platform and search for the inert combat frames in front of your computer terminal.
13. Ship Equipment
This scannable can be found immediately between the Opulent Guardian Ship (in the hangar portion) and the Cabal Incinerator (in the hangar section of Presage). After you have defeated the encounter in the first Hangar, climb onto the platform outside the ship. Look up to your left. You can jump on a second platform to scan the equipment array at the Glykon.
14. Hangar Datapad
The hangar is immediately after the ship equipment array. A datapad is located in the corner of the raised walkway to your right. To find it, look for the yellow screen in the corner.
15. Makeshift Cot
Just before the final drop into the boss room, you will find the 15th and last scannable of the Presage mission. This scannable can be found immediately after you have completed the Darkness barrier. After you have cleared the barrier, the cot will be directly in front your nested in back right corner.
