In this guide I have outlined a method for obtaining the materials “Hidden Trend
”, “Shaded Facet
” and "Confiscated Motive"
if you do not have enough of them after completing the DLC and defeating Hartman.Do not spend your materials on mods or other weapon forms before upgrading Surge, as materials are difficult to acquire after completing the story.
*As of September 13th, 2020, there is a potential bug that after you upgrade Surge to level 2, level 3 will not be available. The only way around this bug right now is to mission select back and restart the DLC. Credit to “Daynglsgameguides.com"
This is a list of all the materials you will need: (Credit to “Daynglsgameguides.com”)
is dropped by defeated named enemies (mini bosses). The most guaranteed spawn of a named enemy is in a Bureau Alert.
*As of September 6th, 2020, there is a bug in which Bureau Alerts will not show up for you anymore unless you complete the mission "Put a Record On".Shaded Facet
*As of September 6th, 2020, there is a bug in which the mission "Put a Record On" does not complete after the requirements have been met.
Both of these bugs happened to me so I was unable to get any Bureau Alerts to show up.
is dropped by defeated enemies in the Investigations sector.Confiscated Motive
is dropped by defeated enemies in the Investigations sector.Untapped Potential
is dropped by "Anomaly" (defeated main bosses). You should receive one from Hartman after you defeat him.
Fast travel to “Bright Falls AWE Entrance” if you are not there already and go to the room that you fought Hartman in.
This room can spawn the following enemies:
- A named Hiss Warped that drops 1 Hidden Trend (sometimes also 1 Shaded Facet).
- Many different types of enemies, one of which will drop 1 Shaded Facet.
- Many different types of enemies, some of which will drop “Confiscated Motive”.
- Many times, no enemies.
*The rarest spawn is the named Hiss Warped.
After your attempt quit to main menu, continue game and go to the room to try again.
If you get any materials you need, go back to the control point (fast travel point) and hold
to exit so the game saves before quitting to the main menu.
After I defeated Hartman at the end of the story in the DLC all I needed was Hidden Trend and had 4 of the 9 required for the last upgrade for Surge. I got the last 5 this way. It took me around 1 and a half to 2 hours to do so.This is a video of the named Hiss Warped spawning in the room:
