The Scanner is a tool capable of scanning fragments, lifeforms, technology and other objects scattered around the map. Fragments are scanned to acquire blueprints; to acquire the blueprints of a particular item, the player must scan its corresponding fragments, the number of which varies based on the object. The Scanner can also scan life forms and Harvesting Nodes, adding their specific entries to the PDA's encyclopedia.
