Investigator allows the Helios Sentinel to scan objects and enemies it encounters. This consumes Codex Scanner, or Synthesis Scanner charges.

  • Helios' scans will not give the player Simaris standing, even if Synthesis Scanner charges were used, however each scan will reward the player with affinity, like a normal Codex Scanner use would.
    • If one has a Sol-Battery Widget, these scans will not drain charges from the Synthesis Scanners, allowing for free scanning.
      • You must have a codex scanner or Synthesis Scanner equipped in your gear for Helios to use scan charges from; there is no warning if you go into a mission without any charges (Helios will just not scan anything).
