You get the datashard during a pickup quest in the game; Stout gives it to you before you’re about to meet the Maelstrom gang.

What’s interesting to note here is that you can hack the datashard as well, as is the tradition with everything in this game.

There’s a correct set of sequences that you’re going to have to follow to remove the virus from the shard.

It’s always nice to decrypt the shards in this game as they contain some super interesting secrets for players to discover.

2. What It’s Going To Be Like?

Once you start hacking the shard, only one particular sequence in the grid (code matrix) will let you remove the virus. The grid should look exactly like this:

3. Correct Sequence To Hack The Militech Datashard:

Here’s what you got to do:

  • If you look at the grid closely, the first and last numbers in the first and second sequence are the same.
  • This means that if you input the second sequence first, you’ll be able to get all the numbers right.
  • By that logic, the correct sequence will be BD, BD, FF, 55, 1C, and E9.

Now, you’ll have to enter them while switching between the rows and columns of the code matrix. Here’s the order:

  • Start with the second last BD in the row, moving next to BD below it in the last row.
  • After that, you need to go backward and take FF right before the bottom BD and the 55 above it in the first row.
  • Lastly, skip one column and go straight to the second column from the left.
  • Choose 1C at the top and then E9 at the bottom.

With that, you’ll be able to remove the virus from the shard and any danger that it may have previously posed. You can now either make a copy to keep it for yourself or give it straight to Maelstrom without creating any problematic situation as the shard is now safe.

Quite the peaceful route to take for half a hassle.
