Discovery Scanner - 24/10/2022

Greetings Commanders.

We're full throttle right now with Halloween happenings throughout the Galaxy and it's thrilling to see so very many Commanders getting well and truly in the spirit of spooky.

So let's go again! Here's welcoming you into another Monday with this week’s Discovery Scanner.

Game News:

  • As mentioned in last week’s Discovery Scanner, Update 14 is marked for release at the end of November. We would like to reassure you that there is no further change to this schedule as of this week.
  • We were made aware last week that some a number of Commanders (4.0 Horizons players specifically) encountered issues with the livery store in-game displaying "requires Odyssey" for many cosmetics, when this strictly wasn’t true.
    • This issue has since been addressed, with the in-game livery store now representing items correctly.
  • A number of reports were received around the Noctule Blight paint job, which features as part of the recent Creator Twitch Drops event for the Cobra MkIII, being unavailable in the in game livery after successfully redeeming it via Twitch.
    • We took a look into this. If Commanders who are still encountering this issue could relog, this issue will now be resolved.



GalNet Spotlight:

Channel 07 has intercepted footage of a violent attack on three talk show hosts, broadcast live on several Imperial newsfeeds.

The show came to an abrupt halt after the three were apparently fired upon by an assailant who gained access to the enclosed set. The perpetrator managed to flee the building before security could intervene.

To read more, head over to the full article HERE.

Are you on the trail of the mystery assailant? What have you found from your investigations so far?



Treats, not Tricks:

We’re continuing on with our month of treat giving this Halloween period, in the form of code drops for this extra special Noctule Hex paint job bundle for the ships shown above.

Many of these bundles were handed out as part of last week’s Halloween Special livestream, however it doesn’t end there!



We’re giving away a number of codes over on the official Elite Dangerous Twitter right now, in exchange for one of your most prominent ‘Creepy Encounter’ stories.

We’ll be picking some winners shortly and will announce them in the comment replies.

Keep an eye out for more posts like this across social media to grab yourself this prize bundle before the month is out.

As a reminder:
Should you stumble across one of our giveaway codes, here’s the way to redeem them!
-    Navigate to
-    Sign in using the platform you want to use the code on
-    Navigate to Redeem Giveaway Code (
-    Put your code in, and press redeem.

Note: Make sure you include all letters and characters of the code.

Your new paint jobs will be available to you when you next launch the game!



The search for some of the most Elite Dangerous screenshots continues for the final full week (and a little extra!).

Don’t forget, this special October event ends with the winners of Stellar SCREAMshots announced on November 2nd.

Share your creepiest screenshots with the hashtag, #StellarScreamshots on Twitter, Facebook and as part of the official Elite Dangerous Stellar Screenshots thread and you could win a new, limited edition for the month of October (and a little bit of November), Halloween themed Asp Explorer paint job, the 'Malevolent Ghast', in addition to the usual 'Shatter' paintjob! 

You can still be counted as part of #StellarScreenshots but it'll be great to collectively add in #StellarScreamshots too o7
