How to track abnormalities on a Starfield scanner

How to track abnormalities on a Starfield scanner

Scanner distortion missions are a specific type of mission that gives you a unique power at the end of them. Into the Unknown will likely be your first Scanner Warping mission, but there are more powers to unlock and more adventures to be had! This particular mission is one of the most confusing missions in the Quests into the Unknown series, and I’ll show you how to do it below!

Starfield: How to track distortions on a scanner

When you land in Procyon III, the distortions will show up on your scanner as a small glitch in the outer ring of the scanner. Rotate your scanner until you see one of these distortions, then move in that direction. The distortions will increase in frequency and intensity as they get closer to the target.

You’ll eventually stumble upon a structure called the Temple of Ita (shown above), which is your destination for this part of the Into the Unknown quest.

When you approach the Eta Temple, you will be given your next objective, which is to “investigate the source of the anomaly.”

How to solve the Ita Temple puzzle

From here, you’ll make your way inside the Ita Temple and bump into an ancient building with a similar appearance to the artifacts you’ve put together. Activating this structure will require you to solve a puzzle that involves you floating on balls of light.

These light prisms will move to random locations in the temple room. You will need to fly towards the light to start activating the structure. Once you fly into enough light balls, the ancient structure will turn into a portal.

Entering this portal will grant you another vision and take you back outside, where you will be tasked with returning to the inn.

After you return to the inn, you’ll be given the Anti-Gravity Field Power, which sends enemies hurtling across the sky in a low-gravity field. This is an extremely useful power, and can render even the most dangerous enemies useless!

Eventually, you’ll be given additional tasks to distort the scanner, and each one will give you a new power to play with!
