Non-Human Signal Source

A Non-Human Signal Source is a type of signal source introduced in the 2.4 update. These Signal Sources contain one of several possible Thargoid encounters dependent on their threat level. The threat level varies from 2-9.

Spawn LocationsEdit

Non-Human Signal Sources spawn primarily in the vicinity of the Pleiades Nebula and Witch Head Nebula. Other locations include systems that have been identified by Eagle Eye as targets for imminent Thargoid attacks, and systems that are experiencing Incursions.
