N7: Eclipse Smuggling Depot

Nathan Garvin

To start this assignment, travel to the Faryar system in the Hourglass Nebula cluster, where you’ll find the planet Daratar. Scan it to find an anomaly, then land on the planet.

You'll find the assignment "Eclipse Smuggling Depot" on planet Daratar.

After you land, follow the path down the hill until you see a wide open area in front of you, where three YMIR Mechs will be busy destroying crates.. You will need to protect as many of the twenty destructible crates as you can in the area, as your reward will be reduced by 190 Credits per crate destroyed (down to a minimum of 3,750 Credits).

(1 of 3) Take potshots at two YMIR Mechs to draw their attention away from the crates,

If you race down the hill at the start you will be able to attack the first two mechs without losing any crates - take potshots at them until they start attacking you to ensure they won’t get up to mischief, but don’t bite off more than you can chew. Each YMIR Mech has three life bars - shields, armor and health - so it’ll take considerable effort to bring one down. Use Overload to disable shields, Incinerate and Warp to destroy armor, and of course, swap between weapons depending on the task at hand. The sooner you kill the two you first provoke, the less damage the third will be able to cause.

Destroy all three to secure the crates and complete the mission, but before you leave, be sure to search around for some extra loot. To the left you will find some Power Cells and over near the far right wall you can find a canister of Element Zero and a Med Kit.

Experience Gained: 125 (156)
Credits: 3,750 + 3,750 (-190 per crate destroyed)
