Anomaly Retrieval

A screenshot showing a small Orokin device known as a Purifier, consisting of a boxy base made of dark stone with two ring-shapped antennae oriented vertically. The device has gold accents and glowing blue lights. It is planted in the gray rocky surface of Deimos' Cambion Drift, and Infested grass-like growths cover the ground. Screenshot by GrayArchon.

Hunt down anomalous samples in the Deimos biome.

This is one of the 9 possible bounties that can show up on Mother's bounty board in the Necralisk. This bounty has the Tenno track down traces of an anomalous object, and always ends with the Extract Samples stage. Below are the unique dialogue lines that are heard when beginning and ending the bounty, and when running the different stages. The Assassinate, Hive Extermination, and Liberation stages do not seem to appear for this bounty. All five possible stages are listed below.

Bounty start

Mother: "I'm sure you've apprehended by now that Deimos is… not as it should be. Several anomalous objects worthy of study have come up in recent scans. Loid can take you through the retrieval process."

(after entering Cambion Drift) Loid: "Anomalous objects were scanned within this region. Be on the lookout for—"

Otak: "Don't be silly, retrieving them won't make a difference!"

Cache Retrieval

Loid: "I have detected a nearby cache that may be the source of an anomaly. Kindly locate it…."

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus) Otak: "Wow, you got all the pieces and the big puppy too! I wonder what it's been chewing on to get like that?"

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus) Loid: "Anomalous object secured. Keep searching; there are more out there."


Loid: "The anomaly appears to be buried. You will need to use an excavator to reach it."

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus) Otak: "Well okay then, Mr Smarty-pants! ALL of the excavators made it through their cycles – you rock at this! Pun fully intended!"

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus) Otak: "Those old diggers sure can go, right? We got deep enough; you can stop now."

Protect the Corpus Scientist

Otak: "Hey, there's a Corpus researcher close by! Latrox Une! I bet he'll help us if we help him!"

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus) Loid: "Well done, full sample upload complete. These data will be invaluable in cleansing Deimos."

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus) Loid: "I've successfully established a link with the researcher's data stream… interesting. Proceed to the indicated location; I believe I've found something noteworthy."

Protect the Grineer Squad

Loid: "I am detecting Grineer transmissions in the area – somewhat panicked ones, to be precise. Please investigate and render assistance – we are mutual enemies of the Infestation."

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus) Loid: "You have achieved double the Grineer's kill count and saved the day – a salutary lesson in lethality I'm sure they won't forget."

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus) Otak: "Everything's better with new friends, don't you think? Oh, and I got the coordinates of where to go next off them. Nice guys."

Bounty end (Extract Samples)

Loid: "According to the scan data, this is the final location. Whatever is buried here represents the most unique anomaly detected. Please, proceed with extraction."

(upon completing the bounty) Mother: "Loid tells me you have retrieved the samples I wanted. I am… pleased. I suppose you should have a reward for your efforts."
