Find Data Terminals for more Relics

You unlock more Relics by going around Dogtown and finding Militech Data Terminals to get Relic points. Unlike Perk points, you don't get Relic points from leveling up.

These Data Terminals aren't marked on your map, so you'll have to do quite a bit of exploring! We'll have a list of Data Terminal locations for unlocking Relics once the game is released.
