Datapads are information devices found throughout the Heleus Cluster.


Datapads are items that can be interacted with during gameplay. Datapads may contain personal logs, status reports, cargo manifests, menus, research notes, treatises on government, or simple notes.


There are three types of datapads that can be encountered during gameplay: Angaran, Initiative, and Kett.

Each datapad has a distinct visual display style but function in the exact same fashion.

There are hundreds of unique datapads found during gameplay. For a complete list, and sub lists of each datapad type, refer to the categories below:
