— In-game description
Where to find:
Signal sources with ship salvage ("Combat Aftermath" USS near shipping lanes of high security systems or Degradaded SS), Surface POI.
Combat: get to an Anarchy system and blast some traders (RES, convoys, nav beacons, Seeking Meds, Seeking Weapons).
- Combat ships: RES, anywhere. - Transport ships: RES Miners in Anarchy systems (just look out for the pink lasers) - Authority ships: Low intensity combat zones.
Anarchy system with a station just keep roaming the shipping lane and look for convoy USS but priority is orca's + wedding barges they drop rares alot then all other transport ships
As mission rewards - ? (Sothis/Ceos has them?)The only "fast" and "reliable" way to get Chemical Manipulators is to blow up T9's in Seeking Weapon USSs or HazRES sites in Anarchy systems.
