Data Hound

Collect 6 Cerberus data packets scattered across Aite    

All 6 Cerberus data packets are found in the 1st area you start using the M-44 Hammerhead vehicle. 5 of the 6 data packets can be found within settlements spread throughout the area while 1 data packet is adjacent to a crashed ship located within a dark valley close to Vulcan Station. You can collect data packets before and after you enter both Prometheus Station and Vulcan Station, but will be unavailable to collect once you enter Atlas Station. To collect packets, hover over the yellow circle surrounding the data packet and press . A detailed location guide can be found HERE

Good to know I'm not the only person. You tick them off and save but it still
show's that they're unticked after its saved. Annoying.

If you're having issues checking off DLC, delete the list by hitting the Red X from the "My Checklists" link, and then re-enable and recheck them all.

Um it doesn't ever let me start in the ship, I only get to the satellite area to destroy the dish. Is this right?

This is after the satellite dish part, you will get the Hammerhead to go to the other bases on the planet.

What are the Data packages? The only things I have seen (at least in the beginning part, before the dish) have been journal recordings. I haven't seen a single thing called a "Data Package", and I can't find a walkthrough anywhere for this DLC.

I did Overlord before Firewalker so I had no clue what to do with those yellow circles. Firewalker shows you that you have to press Y to get them, but in Overlord they're just there... I tried shooting them lol

If I've already made it to Vulcan station, is it too late to get the data packets or can I back track and get them somehow?
