Helios is not scanning anything [Fixed]

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to let you know that my Helios Prime (with Investigator in the first mod slot) is not scanning anything in the new Fortuna zone.

Ditto this. Half the reason I have helios is to scan them before I kill them. I don't want to constantly stop to scan before killing things.

For a brief glorious minute my Helios got its act together and went ham on scanning everything in sight during the Defend the Gate mission of Vox Solaris. But otherwise it's been an utter waste of a companion slot.

He worked during one mission for me, but only when I had Codex Scanners (not Synthesis Scanners) in my loadout and only for stealth scans when enemies didn't see me.

Indeed. I was going to post in one of the other threads, but since this one applies to the current version and collects a ton of the others, here I go.

Well, this is not exclusive to the Fortuna update so let's take the opportunity to make DE listen.

HELIOS IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. I went in Orb Vallis 2 times for 2 missions and not even 1 scan.

Hey Tenno! We are aware of the issue but we are having a hard time reproducing it. If you have any more information on how to trigger the problem please comment below. (precept location, scanner type etc might be important)

I'm using a 3 formad Helios Prime with a maxed scan precept in the first slot. I have all the Simaris scan widgets and a synthesis scanner in the first top slot of my gear wheel for use when manually scanning and traps in slot #2 to the right of them. I have 42 synthesis scanners and 26 codex scanners as I didn't bother to sell off the extras I had when I got all the Simaris scan widgets.

I have almost all the stuff before Fortuna/Orb done, so I can't comment on stuff elsewhere not scanning.

I have noticed a couple of bugs. First the Gorgaricus Sacs can not be scanned at all, and my Helios Prime with a max Investigator mod will not scan anything.

I have both the requisite precept and both kinds of scanner (regular and synthesis) equipped on my gear wheel. When i enter the Vallis, whether by Fortuna or directly Helios simply does not scan anything when it clearly should be able to.

I noticed my Helios not scanning anything in Orb Vallis *except* for the second to last mission in the Solaris United quest, where you defend the entrance and then run away from the big orb spider.  For that mission, and only that mission, Helios was scanning normally.  I ran the whole quest with the same loadout and mods.

I thought it would be a good idea to dust off my Helios Prime to scan all the new things in Fortuna while I'm doing the killings and the questings but Helios isn't scanning anything. I do have to mod equipped and both types of codex scanners but nothing is happening.

I tried removing all mods from Helios Prime and putting only the Investigator mod in the first slot. Then removing all my Gear except Synthesis Scanner in the first slot. The scanner is maxed out btw. Still does not work. Also tried rearranging the mods, putting the scanner in different gear slots. I can see Helios staring at the enemies that need to be scanned but it just does not happen.

Helios did scan at the same part of the mission for me as @Buff00n and then again two more times when spiders spawned at the entrance to Fortuna. Since these times he has not scanned anything.

Edit: Also just tried the generic Codex Scanner and no change. Helios still does not scan anything.

Indeed, just ran the big orb spider mission and Helios was scanning during the short time I was outside getting pounded by the big monster. Otherwise, no scans.

See, that's the pickle. Been having this issue for almost a week now (aka since I crafted Helios) and I still can't find the correct trigger. It seems almost random. I've had LOTS of scans during this time, my Codex has a lot of stuff completed, but sometimes it simply won't scan. Or it will scan for a part of a mission and the stop, or vice-versa.

In regards to Orb Vallis specifically, I can say that up until now I've had the same experience Buff00n just reported. It is easier noticing it on the new update area since there are lots of new stuff that Helios should be scanning, ofc.

Indeed, my HP just decided to make a few scans during the door fight as well. But it only did a few.

Same here. Helios has been hit-and-miss for me for well over a year, sometimes refusing to scan something unless I'm standing in a specific arbitrary spot, so I kind of assumed it was doing that instead of just being completely broken now when I took it out.

I'm having the same issue.  Helios will face an enemy/object like he wants to scan/attack it, even without having any attack precepts/weapons equipped, but never really does anything.
