These may be bought in bulk for 5,000 Credits which gives you 25 charges per purchase.

Each time you scan an enemy or object, one charge will be consumed regardless if you have scanned the enemy in a previous mission or not.

Scanning enemies will reward you with Cephalon Simaris standing which can later be used to purchase offerings from Cephalon Simaris which consist of several items such as mods, weapons, scanner upgrades and more.

The Synthesis Scanner may not only be used for scanning, looking through it will allow you to see certain trails, tracks or enemies that are hard to see without the scanner.



To furthermore improve your Synthesis Scanner and make it easier for you in several ways, you have the option of purchasing upgrades for your Synthesis Scanner.

These are available in the offerings menu for standing as well and it is advisable to purchase these in able to effectively farm Cephalon Simaris Standing.

Here are the four Synthesis Scanner upgrades:

1) Data-Parse Widget

2) Cross-Matrix Widget


The Cross-Matrix Widget gives a chance for each scan to be able to count as too scans which will give you more amounts of standing as well as double the chance to acquire special items from scans such as those from scanning Kavats or plants during missions.

3) Sol-Battery Widget


The Sol-Battery charger is the most important upgrade you can get and must be purchased first before anything else since it allows you to use the Syntheses Scanner without consuming charges.

Basically you get unlimited synthesis scans which will save you the time from purchasing charges frequently as well as saving Credits.

4) Vector-Thread Widget


The Vector-Thread Widget is the second most important upgrade for your Synthesis Scanner as it greatly reduces the time for scans to finish.

This is very useful as you will not be burdened with following enemies for a long time with your reticle and you will make faster progress by completing scans quickly.

How To Use The Synthesis Scanner?


First of all, you need to make sure that you have a Synthesis Scanner and some charges to be used during missions.

This can be purchased at the Sanctuary for 5,000 Credits for every 25 charges that you want to buy.


Once you have your Synthesis Scanner, be sure to head to the equipment menu select gear to open the gear wheel where you may select which gear you will be using for missions, including the Synthesis Scanner.

Select a blank spot or a slot that has an item that you want to replace with a Synthesis Scanner.


Select the Synthesis Scanner from the items that you have to equip it in your gear wheel which will then allow you to use it during your missions.


Once you have selected the Synthesis Scanner and set it to a certain slot in the gear wheel, you will be able to use it during missions.

This can be done by opening the gear menu during a mission or by pressing the given keyboard shortcut to use that item depending on the slot.


To use a Synthesis Scanner during a mission, select it by opening up the gear wheel and picking it from the menu or press the shortcut that it is set to which will equip it similar to how a weapon will be equipped.

This will cause you to be unarmed and you will seem to walk freely but you may switch back to your weapon anytime by pressing the change weapon button or using a melee attack.


Head to where your enemies are and begin to scan them by first holding down the aim button or key that you have configured, similar to aiming your weapon.

Once you have aimed, follow the target you wish to scan with your reticle and hold down your primary firing button similar to firing your primary or secondary weapon.

Enemies or objects that may be scanned will be highlighted to show you what you may scan during the mission.


Once you successfully do a scan you will see the amount of standing that you gain and the specific enemy will no longer be highlighted.

You may the same type of enemy once per unit that is found on the mission but each can only be scanned once and will no longer be highlighted.

Basically if you scanned a certain Elite Lancer as seen in the image, you will no longer be able to scan him but any other Elite Lancers will still be available to be scanned.

How To Earn Cephalon Simaris Standing?

There are different ways to earn Cephalon Simaris such as canning enemies or synthesis targets which you are free to do whenever you want.

The following will give you more information on such activities that grant you Cephalon Simaris standing.

Scanning Enemies and Objects


During any mission you are undergoing, you may simple equip your Synthesis Scanner and scan any enemies or objects that are highlighted.

Scanning these will give you standing depending on the enemy level and if enemies are scanned in an undetected manner such as being invisible while they are not alerted will yield more standing.

Scanning Synthesis Targets


Cephalon Simaris will be able to give you daily synthesis targets which you will need to scan during missions.

In order to complete this, you must scan one enemy that is targeted across 3 different missions which will give you points every scan along with a final reward of standing and endo when you turn in the task.

You may begin by heading to Cephalon Simaris and talking to him to open up the dialogue where you may find the task and more options when interacting with the Cephalon.


To accept a target simply select “Do You Have Any Targets?” to begin and you will go through the briefing where you will be assigned a target that Cephalon Simaris wants you to scan.


Once you have selected to ask for targets, Cephalon Simaris will give you the details on the target you will be scanning as well as showing the rewards that you will receive upon completion.

Select “I Will Perform This Synthesis” to initiate the task and it will be set as your daily synthesis target.


It is important that you know where to find the target you are going to be scanning and if you do not currently know where to find them you may check the Codex located in your orbiter.

Simply interact with it by pressing your action button to enter its menu.


To search for the enemy, select universe and click on the faction’s selection to view the enemies and their information.


Search for the target that you are tasked to scan by either scrolling or typing its name in the search box so you can view their information.


Once you have selected the type of enemy that you have been tasked to scan, you may check their info to see where they can be located.

If there are many locations, it is best to start with higher levels as they may have a higher chance to spawn in the mission.


Begin by heading to the location where your target may be but take note just because an enemy can spawn on a planet, it doesn’t mean it will so if you can’t find them on a certain planet or mission, you can try the other ones.

Select the mission that has the enemy in it to begin a normal mission with a chance for them to spawn.

It is suggested to pick capture missions as they are the fastest way to do synthesis scans due to the fast completion of the mission.


Begin the mission as you normally would and you may either complete the mission first or hunt the target right away.

We suggest you finish the mission first before searching for the target in order to keep things orderly and progress faster.

At the beginning of the mission make sure that Cephalon Simaris says that there is a target in the location and if he doesn’t talk to you during the mission then that means the enemy is not going to spawn there.


You may search for the synthesis target during the mission by either roaming the map and searching for them or following a trail that shows up when you are looking through your scanner.

When holding down the aim button, the scanner will reveal what appears to be a trail that resembles data as shown in most of the sanctuary and the way it looks.

You may follow this trail to find the synthesis target or simply run around looking for them during or after completing the mission objectives.


When you are near the synthesis target, Cephalon Simaris will contact you and let you know and the enemy will also be marked by a waypoint.

Follow the enemy and close the distance between the two of you to proceed to scan it.


If you had used a Kinetic Siphon Trap before, you will know these can aid you by temporarily suspending a synthesis target in the air.

This may also be equipped in your gear menu via placing it in a gear slot which will allow you to place it during the mission.

Simply select it during the mission or press its shortcut to deploy one and any nearby synthesis target will be suspended.

This is recommended as you will be scanning certain points on them which requires accuracy and due to this it is best to use the Kinetic Siphon Trap in order to carefully target those points.


Once suspended, use your Synthesis Scanner to be able to view the points and scan these one by one in order to completely scan the synthesis target.


You will be shown the remaining number of times you need to scan the enemy after the scan is complete.


Upon completion of the scan you will be awarded an amount of standing and may from then on complete the mission by finished the objective if not finished yet or heading to the extraction.


Upon extraction, you may see the amount of standing that you have acquired from the scan during the mission.

You must repeat this as many times required and each time you successfully do the scan you will receive a decent amount of standing.


Once you have completed the scans you may head back to Cephalon Simaris to turn in the task and finish it in order to receive the bonus rewards upon completion.

Select “I Have Completed The Synthesis” in order to turn in your task.


After turning in the task you will receive the reward you were first offered when you were first accepting the task.
