Well of course it has always been there now. But maybe it wasn't already always there before.

Am I going to have to go back to the tapes? I recorded a playthrough like 5 months ago. Was it always there? Is there a recording taken at launch that looks at that panel?

This fuckin game. Love it

My current general loadout is just all high-tier energy recovery, it's a ton of fun with launch maxed out. Just telekinetically one-shotting 80% of the enemies, I can barely even launch stuff fast enough to run out of energy.

There's useful ones like 'lower cost to shield rush' or 'lower cost to dodge'. There's the unique 'heal on dodge' too.

It's what I did for half the game and it's great. Until I maxed out the health tree and decided to have +orb on there. And then I realized how useful shield rush is, so I added a +shield health one too.

Edit: Some of the highest level mods are ridiculous. I think I have a +15 projectiles on the Shatter.

On the only decent conditional mod I think is ammo use when levitating and even then its outshined by mods you get later.

One thing I'm thinking about while doing this run is that it would've been a nice little detail if you were actually rescuing people in all, or at least some, of the shelters you open up for loot around the building

lol I didn't notice I got this when I was playing the other night



(stacked all the +Damage mods I had onto Surge, stuck three bombs on the forklift to the right as you enter Dr. Tomassi's arena, pick up forklift and two heavy crates, as soon as he starts to emerge from the rock WHOOSH - he won't block if you time it right, over half of his health bar blasted off)

Yeah it's an altered object. I was trying to find it but it didn't spawn for me anywhere

I had no idea it even existed. Also I had to restart my PS4 because it froze while trying to trim the video clip, and now the machine's not spawning there

There's a case file or something that mentions somewhere, I didn't realise it was actually one you could find in the game.

They are random, so put a bullet into every vending machine. My first encounter was when the flying machine-gunners show up in the first big office in Investigations and it was one of the stray bad guy grenades that triggered it, so not only did I have brand new hovering assholes to deal with but also an angry, sparking vending machine rushing past me every few seconds.

It has a case file and everything. There's also one for a fridge, but I don't think there's one running around in the game.

And I finally found it (one?) in the Operations Center. It dropped around 10 mods. Nothing useful to me sadly.

I actually just got that yesterday but figured it was just more fun storytelling, I've occasionally smacked a vending machine in passing but never had one wake up and zip away until now.

I think it only spawns in the Investigations sector.

I'd just assumed that vending machine log was a veiled nod to scp-261 since the devs have explicitly acknowledged scp stuff as one of the inspirations for the game. Didn't know it was something you could find, that's neat.

There's an achievement for killing 5 of those vending machines, and either it's REALLY rare or it follows some long-term pattern no one has figured out yet. It's the last achievement I don't have :/

I only have the Epic Store version, so no achievements for me, but I believe you only have to destroy four of them for the achievement. The game randomly decides which vending machines will be the altered item every session. I got two in short order by running through a couple of places in the Investigations Sector that I remember seeing a vending machine and shooting them, then quitting and restarting the game and running through again. It's pretty tedious, and I'm not sure I'm gonna bother trying to kill it five times (rumor has it the altered item will stop spawning after you find and kill it five times).

From what I've heard, sometimes the same vending machine you killed before can be the altered item again.

That's normal, as the quest is literally just "Here's how expeditions work!!" Hop in and be amazed at the wonders of stretching a games combat design beyond it's limit!
