Exobiologist is a role recognized by the Pilots Federation that involves On Foot scientific activities. In order to advance in rank, Exobiologists must use the Genetic Sampler, which is included with the Artemis Suit, to collect samples of alien life forms and then sell them at Vista Genomics.

Ranks

Exobiologist Elite icon

Exobiologist rank is progressed by turning in complete biological samples to any Vista Genomics location. The "Profit from Organic Data" from each transaction counts towards rank progress.

Sample Values & Details

Vista Genomics redemption values for samples obtained with the Genetic Sampler are listed below. Values are fixed, but samples that qualify as "First Logged" will reward double the sample's base value as a bonus. Also listed are the Clonal Colony Range(CCR), the minimum distance a player must travel before there is sufficient genetic diversity to scan a second or third sample, as well as any primary attributes that can help determine on what type of planet they will usually be found.

Notes

  • The Exobiologist role and rank ladder was introduced in Elite Dangerous: Odyssey.
  • Because many exobiological organisms live in very rough terrain, it can be advantageous to carry out exobiology in a small ship, which can more easily land in smaller landing spots.
