Data Hound Locations Guide (Overlord DLC)

Just a little spoiler-free guide in case some people needed it:

Data Hound - Collect 6 Cerberus data packets (10G):

After gaining control of the Hammerhead in a lush, green area, where you are heading towards two stations, you can obtain this achievement. You are to collect six Cerberus data packets around this area. Hold Y while hovering over them to collect. Here's the locations:

Follow these directions from your startpoint:

1. Do a sharp right and you will find a metal platform with two turrets. Destroy the two turrets and collect the packet on the platform. This area is marked by two giant stone pillars.

2. Go straight ahead and you will see a waterfall to your right. Hover behind the waterfall and you will see the packet on a metal platform.

3. Go straight ahead till you meet a fork and go to the right. You will find a metal platform guarded by two turrets. Destroy them and obtain the packet on the platform.

4. Same as previous, but take the left of the fork instead. Follow the path till you see a metal platform with two turrets on them. By now, you know what to do with them. The packet is on the platform.

5. Go left and you will see shadowed area with a waterfall. Fly down by the waterfall and you will find the packet guarded by two Geth Mechs. Missiles ahoy at them.

6. Go left, heading towards Vulcan Station. You will find a metal platform by the cave entrance. The packet is there.


Here's a video of the locations. Credits to Nihilismmm.

_________________________________________

There ya go. Easy 10G.

WARNING: This achievement is missable! Be sure to get all data packets before entering the third and final station, or else you will not be able to come back unless you load a new game file! When you get a message to press B to exit your Hammerhead, that means that you're entering a station. TURN BACK IMMEDIATELY BEFORE YOU ARE FORCED TO GO IN.

Thanks for reading!

The achievement is missable. Once you complete the Overlord DLC, you cannot revisit the area without starting a new game.

"Analysis: defenseless herbivores are no match for guided missiles."

LOL!!! The Hammerhead VI says that if you shoot those moose-like creatures near the 6th packet at Vulcan Station.

As soon as I entered the base I saved. Then figured out I missed that achievement. I was able to load an Auto Save from the world map just before I entered the last base. hope it helps someone check it out before the Auto Save saves in the base.

A few questions.

Is this DLC?

If so, how much?

In which system/nebula is it located?

In fact, which of the achievements are DLC?

Thanks.

Here's one thing I don't get. Why on Earth would anyone at all wait to get the data packets? I decided to go around and hunt for them before I even went to any station, just so I wouldn't have to worry about it. Another thing that confuses me is that it seems a lot of people don't make a save on the Normandy before they do missions, why do people seem to not make multiple saves to prevent disaster from striking?

I sometimes forget to, or end up saving over it by mistake. I try and have one, but I occasionally end up without one.

Also, some people like to play the game properly at least once, rather than reloading old files. Personally I like to do as much as possible, so multiple saves it is. Unless it's Fable II.

I can accept that as a legitimate reason for doing it. However when I play I make multiple saves just in case, I don't save before I talk to someone and then reload if I make a tiny mistake, I save before I head down to a mission and I never save during the mission.

Forgetting things is reasonable, and I have neglected to make one a few times. I just always see benefits from making at least 2 saves and rotate them just in case something goes really really wrong. However I will step down and admit that your explanation is quite valid. Thank you for that and not resorting to insulting me.
