Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Do Peebee's loyalty mission in the volcano. - Finish the battle with 2 atlases - Set FOV to maximum (bar on far right) - Attempt to scan the thing that makes the bridge show up The game considers the item too far away to be scanned. Now set your FOV to the minimum (bar on the far left, or empty) You will now be able to scan the item to make the bridge show up.

On a whim I tested the FOV settings and found this bug.
Due to FOV, the game will not consider you close enough to scan the item not allowing you to proceed through the quest.
i literally cant thank you enough for this, i reloaded the same bit multiple times thinking the game was just broke. Legend.
It's not the only case where the FOV messes with the scanners. It's definitely the most egregious one but there's others. In Vetra's mission in one of the rooms you couldn't select the stuff the hack and very often the scans are capricious and it takes a few tries before you get them.
So I don't think it's a problem specific to this mission as much as it's just that the scanner in general doesn't work well with high FOV and this is just the instance where it's game breaking.
