Infinite Paragon Points - Eletania

Nathan Garvin

Details for how to gain infinite Paragon points on Eletania.

When you travel to the Hercules system you’ll get a transmission that starts the assignment UNC: Lost Module, which will require you to land on the planet Eletania to find a data module. When you land on Eletania, you’ll find the “Downed Recon Drone’’ containing said data module east-of-center on the map… but your task of recovering the data module will be complicated by some monkey-like indigineous life forms.

You can farm the monkeys on Eletania for infinite Paragon points.

These “Monkeys” will need to be searched or killed for the data module, and there are several “Monkey Colonies” where these critters reside. Killing one will earn you Renegade +4, but finding the data module without killing any of them will earn you Paragon +4. To score infinite Paragon points, you’ll want to do the latter. Specifically, you’ll need to find the Monkey with the Data Module without killing any other Monkeys. This thieving Monkey can be found in some mines near a Monkey colony along the northern end of the map, in an eastern side-chamber. As soon as you search this monkey and obtain the Data Module, save your game and reload, then when you load in keep searching the Monkey reepeatedly. You’ll gain Paragon +4 each time you search the Monkey, resulting in some silly high numbers.

This exploit is arguably the easiest way to unlock the Principled achievement, ironically enough.
