Links to other pages Edit

I wasn't sure how best to link this on other pages (such as Achievements), so I'm requesting that people more versed in this wiki handle that. Thanks! --Snicker 09:07, June 12, 2011 (UTC)

Well, the first piece of advice is to ensure proper categorization. I've gone ahead and added a couple, though there may also be more categories that this article fits into. Btw, this article is appreciated and (IMO) overdue. I still don't have this achievement, so I may be making use of the guide very soon... :P SpartHawg948 09:24, June 12, 2011 (UTC)

Collecting Data packets Edit

I'm at the point of ripping my hair out trying to recover these data packets and for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it (I might have just bumped into a glitch). I can find info on xBox that you need to press Y while hovering over the yellow circles to collect the packets, but I can't find any info on what key to press on PC. In my defense, I've tried pressing and holding nearly every key on the keyboard and all 3 mouse buttons. Hence my glitch theory. Still, if I knew what the correct key was, I could be more sure of that. I think this kind of information is appropriate to include in a walkthrough type article.-- 08:24, June 29, 2012 (UTC)

OK, I'm an idiot :) It's the "mine" key (default v). In my defense, I played a lot of Battlezone where "mine" meant something that blows up behind you, hence why I overlooked that key.-- 01:48, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Collecting the Packs Again Edit

Should we note that, should you start a new game after getting the achievement, it is possible to collect the data packs again? However, you're essentially wasting your time as you gain no additional experience or credits from doing so. TheUnknown285 (talk) 16:26, March 11, 2013 (UTC)

No as it is unnecessary. This is an achievement guide, therefore it assumes that the achievement isn't done. Lancer1289 (talk) 18:51, March 11, 2013 (UTC)
