SPOILER:



I find it strange what happens later but unifortunatly in the end 4S would die at some point since the pod was spacific that ALL YorHa black boxes has been deactivated
Yeah me too. I was looking for a direct answer to this question but couldn't find any.
At least you know he didn't die from the virus infection
I suppose this means that those 2 wasted YoRHa androids in the Desert Oil Field also died huh. Since it seems like they're wasted, it doesn't look like they uploaded their data to the Bunker like everyone else and 9S almost did.

Still, you have to wonder though, how'd they actually die? Was it because they were attacked and too wasted to defend themselves? Or did their power simply failed due to a lack of maintenance?
I think... those pods were just referring to A2, 2B, and 9s. I mean they didn't have anything to do with the other stranded YorHa units, like they weren't assigned to them so it wasn't their duty. I doubt they would've suddenly died, it wouldn't have made sense.
trying to find sub-quest tips and walktrough and boom, spoilers, Great.
He didnt have pod with him when u wisited him neither did junky girls, hes probably got destroyd and stoner girls distroyed their own couse it was anoying them
A more disturbing and realistic scenario is that the remaining YorHa members killed themselves out of grief and despair like 9S almost did.
Also, the two yorha crack-heads at the oil slick in the desert :(
I finished the game over 7 times i cant get past 92% what exactly do i need to do, where do i get this "enemy intel" pls someone tell me its soooo annyoing, nobody ever tells exactly what and where to do.

First off: the quest does tell you where to go because you're just supposed to kill different kinds of enemies. With the locations and types changing based on where you are in the story.
https://nierautomata.wiki.fextralife.com/Enemies
Here's the list of enemies. Find something that you don't have in your unit data, and go hunting. Use the chapter select to go to different points in the game.
Have you completed all side quests? Have you fought the secret level 99 boss? Have you fought the dinosaur goliath at the forest waterfall? Have you killed all the different amusement park robots? What about the golden robots? If yes to all of these then you probably missed a regular enemy somewhere along the line. Remember that different versions of the same enemy (ones with different weapons or shields) count towards completion.
How can I find the dinosaur goliath at the forest waterfall?
Path C. Try the mission where A2 must replace filter. The enemy should be lingering in the vicinity of the waterfall.
You can completely miss it forever, in Path C, A2 needs a new filter, you only need material you will 100% have in your inventory from the other 2 playthroughs. If you just turn that in immediatly you WILL MISS the Dinosaur Goliath forever, he wont come back, its a 1 time chance.

Its when they tell you that there is a extremely dangerous enemy around the area where "tree sap" is.
If you miss that chance, sorry for you, I missed it too :(
Just want to clarify here, the previous reply is incorrect - The "Monster Type" machine is NOT miss-able, but it is harder to find if you don't kill it in the side-quest. Check the forum entry for it on this site and in the comments, someone posted instructions (on 08 May 2017) on how to get (a chance for) it to spawn. I can verify that those instructions worked for me and multiple others. Hope this helps :D
Does anyone know the song that plays at the end of this quest
faltering prayer - starry sky
i have a question. for some reason in the description of the misión says that i have to find White animals but i have like a ton of White meat from elks and boars, do i have to kill more of them or do i only have to focus on killing enemies?

As far as I know, animals are not part of the unit data, and should not count for the quest.
Yep. Playing in Spanish, at least, the description is 100% wrong, it's for another mission. You'll find white animals randomly, though. They just have a low chance to spawn wherever animals can be found.
So, I've defeated and recorded all the enemies except for three (Advanced Reverse-Jointed Goliath (if it exists), Emil, and Emil's heads) and my unit data is at 88% (which I don't really understand since?? There's only 3 enemies left?? So how is it only 88%??), will defeating those boost it to 95% or will I be perpetually trapped unable to complete this quest?
Just to clarify my question (comment below this, it won't let me reply to it): I'm only asking because the percentage seems unusually low considering I've gotten every other unit in the game recorded, and I'm a bit of a completionist and stuff so.

I'm guessing you haven't found all machines yet. Keep in mind a lot of entries are obtained by doing side-quests. Like the Idiot Savant, or the animal-like machine, or the western machines. Try to complete all side-quests and see if it's still too low. Also, there's some machines that only appear at certain moments, like the monster-type. I only found out about that one after randomly finding it long after I had completed the game. It's not even tied to a quest despite being a very unique machine. If that doesn't work, try talking to everything in Pascal's village. Personally I lacked the multi-tier machine from the village because I simply didn't talk to it yet.
I saw a few confused comments in here. In order for units to count towards the overall percentage, you need to kill all models for that particular unit. For instance, drill, axe, and gun models for the small unit. You have to do that for all units in every category too such as normal and forest. It's a pain in the ***, but I was able to get from 75 to 100 in one night by looking up locations and reloading saves.
