Cora Harper: Asari Ark Transponder Bug.

★★★★★ Novice

Product: Mass Effect Andromeda
Platform:PC
What edition do you have? Super Deluxe Edition
Physical Disc or Digital version? Digital Based Install
Summarize your bug On the mission Cora Harper: Asari Ark the part which says to find the Periphona's Transponder. I'm right on top of the transponder and I scanned it but it will not let me interact with the Transponder so I can't further the quest line. I've tried exiting the game and starting it back up, I tried leaving the planet and coming back, I tried reloading a save but it auto saves right when you find it so it erased my old auto save and just keeps overwriting the auto save file.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How long has this issue been happening? I don't know

What company provides your internet service?
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I died right after interacting with the transponder and it has an auto save right next to it. So go interact with it and then die.
What is the AMD or Nvidia Model Number of your graphics card?
Please enter memory size in GB.

The attached image should show me clearly in front of the transponder with no interact action available. Please help : (

I can confirm this bug happens when you sit up on the cliff and snipe the kett below. I encountered it, reloaded and rushed down, it worked perfectly. Another transport of kett is supposed to show up during the battle. sniping undiscovered bugs it out and breaks the script it seams.

I also have this problem, don't have a save where I can rush the enemies. Is there anyway to fix? Any console commands to forward the quest?

Here's how I got it to work:

 

I was having the same issue, even though the reinforcements were spawning, and it kept happening over and over, so I loaded a save prior to when the event triggers (Kett start attacking, ship spawns, etc.) and approached the area from the west, as that sort of looks like the "main entrance" to the area (slopes on either side leading into the area that is kind of in a depressed area). This is the direction furthest from the transponder, btw. After taking care of all the Kett, make the transponder the first thing you investigate. When I did this, it worked (let me scan it, triggered dialogue, moved the quest along). Hope that helps.

I snipped the enemies when I was working on this mission. I am not able to scan the transponder, but able to scan everything else in the area. Playing on xbox one so problem isn't platform specific.

Yup, that's exactly where I am at. And my auto-save and main save were after it (I was about to die, so I saved just in case) and now I am completely unable to continue. Some sort of fix/solution would be great.

I would say this is a medium bug (unless this impacts the main story, if it does I would say this is a high bug then).

Occurred 10/10 times when I tried to attempt different things. (Leaving the scene either by driving/running/fast travel/leaving the planet from the nomad and sometimes completed other missions, even did a main story mission)

Same occurrence on my PS4. I have the deluxe edition.

When I first encountered the bug, I shot down the kett from the hill on the right when you approach the scene coming from the west. I scanned it and approached it to start the next step of the mission, I could not continue.
