Yeah I know the boxes themselves are indestructable, but I think NPCs can shoot the locks too. Not sure if the ware containers themselves are indestructable, though.
What I thought happened was: K shoots Core Dig with HIVI turret --> splash damage opens the locks --> next shot destroys container. But maybe it is not possible...

Just tested this claim by shooting lockbox at Lonely Giant with variety of missiles on new game start. Yes, indeed, it is possible for splash damage to destroy the locks and subsequent hit will destroy the ware. While it was not that challenging to blow up the locks by parking a few meters away from lockbox, I still imagine it is extremely low chance of this happening in real situation.

I mentioned indestructability in relation to you not being able to find it. Until you find one with the locks blown off, I think there's a chance it is still there to be found.

(Unless the game removes them over time after locks are opened?)

Considering the amount of fire going on in certain Xenon sectors in Maelstrom, this event is not as uncommon as it may seem :(

As was mentioned on the Wiki (but now seems to have disappeared :( ) the ware containers (once the lockbox is open) are still vulnerable to fire. The recent lock damage adjustment makes things easier for general lockboxes but is irrelevant in this case :(

There was a DEV thread linked from the old Wiki article, possibly by CBJ, that explained what was going on but I can't search for it atm..

Hello,
I can not find a mechanic for my artifacts that are complete?

Artifacts can only be executed by, certain mechanics? Not every mechanic?

What exactly are to trying to complete? Some artefacts need to be build before you can exchange with a Mechanic.

I know assemble, inventory. Ancient Relics, Khaak Relics, quite together, Rare propulsion , complete together,. But no mechanic found to install.
But that only goes without mods?

Sometimes there is a problem where there are no space for mechanics to spawn, so maybe try previous save and change location. Mods may be a problem sometimes too.

@ raim792: Sorry if this is too obvious, but you need to find the mission to collect the parts and craft the item and then take the completed item back to the mission-giver before the relevant mechanic can be spawned. Those rare item missions cannot (all) be found via the Bulletin Board but must be found at station 'lightbulb' icons.

Slight amendment to Alan above: you don't always need the mission to /collect/ the parts, but you'll always need it to craft the item and/or gain the mission reward

If you're trying to complete a DLC-only item one part will be forever out of reach until/unless you have the relevant DLC installed (& find that item in the DLC system(s))

@ Snafu: Heh. Pedantic I know, but the mission you need to find is almost always to collect the parts and craft them into an item ... even if you already have all the parts. :D

Still you are right that you can collect parts before getting the mission if you find any. I suppose that what I posted can be read in different ways. :oops:

:) On reflection I should have said: "you always need the mission to install the item", as you can usually /craft/ the item* (if you have all parts natch) & then install or sell it for profit etc. If you choose the latter, the mechanics will give a decent price for the item; just not as much as the mission reward

I was simply adding that caveat to inform newcomers that the options were available & not solely generated from mission acceptance (giving rise to further possible confusion when they find they have a bunch of randomly-collected useful parts in their hold)..

*the only exception that I can currently think of is the JD; while SETA doesn't need a mechanic or a mission to craft & install)

You don't always need a mission for a rare item. One in particular comes to mind, which I've just completed.

The SETA has no mission associated with it. I just inadvertently started collecting parts, and when it was complete and crafted, it simply worked, no mission giver or mechanic needed.
