Thief's Wit is an Exilus mod which adds a loot radar to the minimap. The loot radar will display resources, lootable canisters, chests, crates, lootable corpses (which only appear during the self-destruction environmental hazard) on the mini-map, and Medallions in Syndicate Alert Missions. Thief's Wit will not display lockers (other than Resource Caches) or dropped blueprints.

  • Thief's Wit (and similar mods) will mark Cephalon Fragments in range on the map with a unique blue diamond icon. Somachord and Frame Fighter fragments are likewise marked with their own icons.
  • When in a mission with other players, resources picked up by another player aside from yourself will not remove them from the mini-map. They will disappear only when you pick it up. The radar is not shared with any other player, so you will need to guide teammates using waypoints, etc. to resources.
  • Due to the random generation of every map, and also the Containers within them, you will be able to see Containers that you are unable to get to, especially at Rank 4 and above, due to them being in a location that may appear near but is only accessible from a different area of the map.
  • Originally, the mod granted only 5 meters of vision per rank. The mod was buffed to 7 meters per rank around Update 12.1 (2014-02-13).
  • Vertical range of detection is capped at 12 meters making the area of detection a flat disk.
  • As of Update: The Silver Grove (2016-08-19), Loot Detector, Animal Instinct and Thief's Wit do not highlight mods through walls.
  • Thief's Wit, along with Mod TT 20px.png Loot Detector and Mod TT 20px.png Animal Instinct will display Resource Caches in select Sabotage and Exterminate missions. However, due to the fact that Resource Caches uses the same icon as a normal container, it's advised to go and destroy every container that you see on the minimap.
