The Visitor

Evidence suggests a creature has been eating the Tempest's food stores. Search the ship to find it.


After returning to the Tempest from Kadara Port, at the bottom deck of the Tempest, Pathfinder Ryder gets signals that something is there. Scanning either the cargo bay floor or the galley counter reveals some crumbs. Nakmor Drack comments over the comm that he has found crumbs too, and the mission starts.


Follow the crumb trail[]

Using the scanner, more crumbs are found to the south of the first pile of crumbs.

Visitor's crumbs

Ryder believes that building a Humane Trap can be used to catch the creature that is nesting there. You will then receive the blueprint for the trap.

Build a trap at a research center[]

The Humane Trap is found under Special Items in the Development menu at a Research Center. It requires 3 Aluminum to craft.

Place the trap at the creature's lair[]

Put the trap where Ryder found the second set of crumbs.

Wait for the trap to spring[]

After Ryder has landed and boarded the Tempest again, go down to where the trap is located. Dr. Suvi Anwar says something is there.

Check the trap[]

Check the trap to find that something has been caught. You now have a Hamster, congratulations. Decide what to do with it.

If kept, the hamster will thereafter be kept in the Pathfinder's quarters, near SAM and the e-mail terminal. Although an "examine" interaction is available, nothing actually happens when executed.
