Task: Remnant Data Cores is an additional tasks mission. It is a collection mission automatically acquired during A Better Beginning when Peebee sees the first Remnant data core in the Eos vault.


Peebee calls these items "Remnant data cores." She believes they are data storage devices.



There are 11 Remnant data cores scattered around Heleus. Only the first is automatically collected along with the mission.
