What is the Pacemaker anomaly and how does it work?

The Pacemaker anomaly is one of the many anomalies you can find in Pacific Drive, the game that challenges you to survive in a harsh and hostile environment after a global catastrophe. Anomalies are strange and unpredictable phenomena that can have positive or negative effects on you and your surroundings.

The Pacemaker anomaly looks like a metal sphere with wires and tubes attached to it. It’s completely static and emits a faint humming sound. According to the log entry you can find near it, it was created by a scientist who was relieved that this particular anomaly was somehow beneficial.

But what does it do exactly? Well, the Pacemaker anomaly is a transmuter, which means it can transform certain items into different ones. You can put items in it, and it will spit out something else, depending on a hidden formula.

Sounds awesome, right? But there’s a catch: you can’t just put any item in it and expect something good. Some items will have no effect, some will make the anomaly shut off and become uninteractable, and some will trigger a negative reaction, such as an explosion or a radiation burst.

So, how do you know what items to put in it and what to expect? That’s where the fun begins. You’ll have to experiment and discover the formula by trial and error. Or, you can read on and learn from my experience and research.

Where to find the Pacemaker anomaly and how to scan it?

The Pacemaker anomaly can be found randomly scattered throughout various biomes, such as Damp Forest, Blistering Woods, The Scorch, The Mires, and Smokestacks. You’ll have to explore the map and look for it, or use a scanner to detect it.

Once you find it, you’ll have to scan it with your device. This will unlock the Garage map, where you can inspect all the Junctions and Anomalies you’ve scanned. You can also access the log entry that gives you some clues about the Pacemaker anomaly.

Scanning the Pacemaker anomaly will also allow you to interact with it and put items in it. To do that, you’ll have to open your inventory and drag and drop the item you want to put in it. You can only put one item or one stack of items at a time.

What items can you put in the Pacemaker anomaly and what can you get out of it?

As I mentioned before, the Pacemaker anomaly has a hidden formula that determines what items it can transform and what it will produce. The formula is not random, but it’s not obvious either. You’ll have to experiment and see what works and what doesn’t.

To help you out, I’ve compiled a list of some items that I’ve tried and their results. Note that this is not a complete list, and there may be other items and combinations that I haven’t discovered yet. Feel free to share your findings in the comments section below!

Here’s the list:

Item Result
Plasma charges Tree candy
Thermosap crystals Gas cylinders
Electronics Fabric
Steel Nothing
Rubber Nothing
Copper wire Nothing
9v battery Nothing
Duct tape Nothing
Canned food Nothing
MRE Nothing
Plastic Nothing
Glass Nothing
Pressured cartridge Nothing
Fabric Nothing
Bulb Nothing
Blue paint Nothing
Impact hammer Nothing
Vacuum Nothing

As you can see, most items do not affect the Pacemaker anomaly, and some even make it shut off. But there are a few items that trigger a positive reaction and produce something useful.

The most notable one is plasma charges, which are transformed into tree candy. Tree candy is a rare and valuable resource that can be used as fuel or traded for other items. It’s also very tasty and nutritious, according to the game description.

Another useful item is thermostat crystals, which are converted into gas cylinders. Gas cylinders are also a fuel source, but they can also be used to craft explosives or power generators.

Electronics are turned into fabric, which is not very exciting, but it can be used to craft clothing or bandages.

How to use the Pacemaker anomaly to get free candy?

Tree candy is one of the most sought-after resources in Pacific Drive, as it can help you survive and thrive in the game. But how do you get it from the Pacemaker anomaly?

The first thing you need is plasma charges. Plasma charges are small devices that can be used as ammo for plasma weapons, such as the plasma rifle or the plasma pistol. They can also be used to power some machines or devices, such as the scanner or the transmuter.

Plasma charges are not very common, but you can find them in various locations, such as:

  • Military bases or outposts
  • Science labs or facilities
  • Abandoned vehicles or aircraft
  • Loot crates or containers
  • Dead enemies or animals

You can also craft plasma charges using chemicals and electronics, but you’ll need a lot of them to make a decent amount of plasma charges.

Once you have some plasma charges, you’ll need to find a Pacemaker anomaly and scan it. Then, you’ll have to open your inventory and drag and drop the plasma charges into the anomaly. You can put as many as you want, but I recommend putting a full stack of 20, as it will give you the most tree candy.

The Pacemaker anomaly will then spit out the same amount of tree candy as the plasma charges you put in it. For example, if you put 20 plasma charges, you’ll get 20 tree candy. You can then collect the tree candy and use it as you wish.

Some tips and tricks to make the most of the Pacemaker anomaly

The Pacemaker anomaly is a powerful and useful tool, but it can also be dangerous and unpredictable. Here are some tips and tricks to help you make the most of it and avoid any unpleasant surprises:

  • Save your game before you interact with the Pacemaker anomaly. This way, you can reload your game if something goes wrong or if you’re not happy with the result.
  • Don’t put any valuable or rare items in the Pacemaker anomaly, unless you’re sure they will produce something better. You don’t want to waste your precious resources or lose your favorite weapon.
  • Don’t put any explosive or radioactive items in the Pacemaker anomaly, unless you’re prepared for the consequences. You don’t want to trigger a blast or a radiation leak that could harm you or your surroundings.
  • Don’t put too many different items in the Pacemaker anomaly at once. You don’t want to overload it or confuse it. Stick to one item or one stack of items at a time.
  • Don’t put the same item in the Pacemaker anomaly repeatedly. You don’t want to bore it or annoy it. Try to mix things up and see what happens.
  • Don’t put anything in the Pacemaker anomaly if you don’t have enough space in your inventory. You don’t want to miss out on the items it produces or leave them behind.
