The next in the series of “Lifepods whose locations must be inferred based on a chained-together series of clues involving cardinal directions” is Lifepod 6.
If you’ve been following this walk-through series in order, then Lifepod 6 can be considered strictly optional because we already obtained the Databox for the Ultra Glide Fins on our visit to the floating island.
The hint for finding Lifepod 6 mentions that its last radio transmission originated at a position that is 400m west-northwest of Lifepod 4.
We start out at Lifepod 4 with the Seamoth pointed to the W-NW.
After a short drive we see Lifepod 6 below, sitting on a raised shelf.
Sitting outside of the lifepod are the Databox for the Ultra Glide Fins, and a PDA.
The PDA contains the first of two Crew Log entries that hint about the fate of the lifepod’s occupants.
Inside the lifepod are 2 Flares and 1 Lead, corresponding to the details mentioned in the Crew Logs.
The 2nd Crew Log is obtained from a PDA inside the lifepod.
