    Data Mining Achievement/Trophy

    Very simple achievement/trophy to earn and will be one of your first if you are the type to explore. By pressing cn_down on your controller you will open the scan tool which will allow you to learn more information on pretty much anything along with gathering resources.

    You will want to scan items that appear as orange.

    As pointed out by "retired bob" man gets a shoutout, make sure you press cn_A when scanning.

    The Globalizer Definitely comes naturally, but to speed this up, scan each of the pylons on Eos. They all count as unique scans. My achievement popped as I did the loop around the outpost.

    Kung Fu Riki I can confirm that the counter is across all playthroughs. If you scan everything before reaching the Nexus and then starting a new game you could get this to pop the second or third time through.
