Artefact Hunter (Endless)

An old Entrati site on the Cambion Drift. Captura by GrayArchon.

Deimos artefacts are always in demand. Bring back as many as you can!

This is one of the 9 possible bounties that can show up on Mother's bounty board in the Necralisk. This bounty has the cycle between cache hunting, Purifier operation, and sample collection in order to obtain Deimos artefacts. As an endless bounty, this bounty will repeat the same three stages, granting a reward every third stage, until the Tenno decides to leave. Below are the unique dialogue lines that are heard when beginning the bounty and when running the different stages. Only the Cache Retrieval, Extract Samples, and Protect the Corpus Scientist stages appear in this bounty, though the order may vary.


Bounty start

Mother: "Location and retrieval of Deimos artefacts is always a priority. The data I can collect from them are a valuable resource in its own right. If you want to join the hunt, then Loid can direct you to some likely spots. Bring back all you can carry."

(after entering Cambion Drift) Loid: "Artefacts are located in the indicated zones. Infested substrate will require removal prior to—"

Otak: "Yay! Treasure hunt time, Tenno!"


Cache Retrieval

[The dialogue lines for this stage are re-used generic bounty stage dialogue lines, and are not unique to this bounty.]

(variant) Loid: "These caches are often left by shipwrecked crews. They are usually worth investigation."

(variant) Otak: "What's in the box? We gotta know what's in the box, right?"

(variant) Loid: "Caches like these often contain valuable data, as well as resources. Please find a way to access it."

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus, variant) Loid: "Efficiently procured. The additional cache contents should prove invaluable."

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus, variant) Otak: "Wow, you were quick! So quick, I reckon you saved more of the box contents!"

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus, variant) Loid: "A job well done. You have exceeded projected expectations."

(upon opening the cache without bonus, variant) Loid: "Cache is open, and contents secured."

(upon opening the cache without bonus, variant) Otak: "Well, blasting things was more fun than opening the box…."

(upon opening the cache without bonus, variant) Loid: "Infestation defeated. The cache held some valuable data."


Extract Samples

(variant) Loid: "Proximity alert. Deimos artefacts are located nearby. Commence retrieval when ready."

(variant) Otak: "You smell that, Chip? Smells like artefacts, y'know: T_R_E_A_S_U_R_E!"

(variant) Loid: "Archival data indicate artefacts can be found in the vicinity. Collection advised."

(variant) Otak: "Ready to get rich, Chip? There's artefacts close by. You go ahead and grab 'em!"

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus, variant) Loid: "I find it interesting you have such an obsession with artefact hunting. Truly no stone left unturned…."

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus, variant) Otak: "WOW! You're fantiddliastic at this! Those little ol' artefacts never stood a chance!"

(upon completing bounty stage with bonus, variant) Loid: "An impressive display, Tenno; artefact retrieval parameters exceeded. Additional reward-incentives have been authorised."

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus, variant) Loid: "A satisfactory quantity of artefacts, I suppose. You will be adequately recompensed for your efforts."

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus, variant) Otak: "Check you out! Ya big ol' treasure hunter, you! You're amazing!"

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus, variant) Loid: "Artefact collection complete. Proceed to debrief for cataloguing and archiving."

(upon completing bounty stage without bonus, variant) Otak: "That's the way! A good— no, a GREAT haul! You've got a nose for this, Chip! Wish I had a nose…."


Protect the Corpus Scientist

[The dialogue lines for this stage are re-used generic bounty stage dialogue lines and other bounties.]

Latrox Une: "Hello? Anyone? This is Corpus representative Latrox Une. I'm lost, cornered by Infested, and my locator is… well, it's been eaten. I am in the direst need of assistance… help?"

(upon completing the upload with bonus, variant) Latrox Une: "And that, my friend, is a clean sweep. All samples uploaded. I'm going to lie down."

(upon completing the upload with bonus, variant) Latrox Une: "Done and done. Every sample uploaded. Science, and your Entrati friends, owe you a debt. Huzzah!"

(upon completing the upload with bonus, variant) Latrox Une: "We are green across the board. All samples cleared. Remarkable."

(upon completing the upload without bonus, variant) Latrox Une: "I think that's a respectable amount, given the circumstances. We could have gathered more, I suppose, but frankly, our Entrati friends can go suck egg sacs."

(upon completing the upload without bonus, variant) Latrox Une: "Upload complete. I couldn't manage the whole spread of samples, but screw it; I'm out of here."

(upon completing the upload without bonus, variant) Latrox Une: "How can a whole moon be so disgusting? That's enough samples for today. Catch you on the flipside."
