Dave the Diver: how to find the Microphone

Sunken treasure comes in all shapes and sizes in Dave the Diver. While you probably would never guess that a quest would have you diving in search of a Microphone of all things, that's exactly what you need to do in order to complete the "Sea People Language Translator" main quest. There are technically three items required to make the Translator, with the other two being the Sea People Stone Tablet and an Amethyst. Even though you get an idea of where to find them all, the Microphone is rather tricky to track down. Rather than waste all your air and time combing the depths of the sea, we'll map out exactly where you can find the Microphone in Dave the Diver.

What You Need

  • Begin the Sea People Language Translator quest

Where to find the Microphone

The Microphone will be in a familiar location from an earlier quest in Dave the Diver. If you need a refresher, here's where to search.

Step 1: Dive straight down in the Blue Hole.

Step 2: Continue straight down into the first cavern to around 100 to 120 meters.

Step 3: To the east (or right), you will find the old shipwreck of the yellow ship. This is the same shipwreck where you needed to go in order to fight the first boss; the Giant Squid. While the boss is still gone, there are a number of dangerous sea creatures around to be aware of.

Step 4: Get through the ship and into the cavern below and collect the Microphone, which will be marked with a yellow exclamation point.

With this, and the other two pieces needed to make the Translator, you can return to Dr. Bacon to complete the quest.

How to get XCoins in XDefiant
A Defiant standing with a gun in front of a large yellow X.

Every game with an in-game shop like XDefiant also needs its own form of currency. Typically, there's more than one to make things even more complicated. XCoins are the name for Ubisoft's premium currency needed to buy most of the cosmetics, such as skins and animations. Some games allow you to earn small amounts of the premium currency for free, while others only sell it to you in exchange for real cash. You don't have to pay to start playing, but will you need to start spending money once you do? Let's dig in and find the answer.
How to get XCoins
XCoins can only be earned in two ways in XDefiant. The first is to simply purchase them with real money. You can buy bundles of the premium currency in the Store tab of the menu by selecting Get More XCoins. These are the bundles currently available:

500 XCoins: $5
1,000 XCoins: $10
2,100 XCoins: $20
5,750 XCoins: $50
12,000 XCoins: $100

XDefiant ‘Unable to Find a Match’ error: troubleshooting and how to fix

Online shooters like XDefiant have one key requirement: You need to be able to find matches in order to play. Most games launch with a few errors, but in this case, the majority of people hoping to play Ubisoft's latest free-to-play title are getting hit with the "Unable to Find a Match" error when looking for a game. This isn't actually an issue with too few people playing the game, especially since it has cross-platform support, so what's really going on? Here's how you can attempt to resolve the "Unable to Find a Match" error in XDefiant.
How to fix the 'Unable to Find a Match' error
This particular error is a little misleading because it implies no matches are available, but it is really an issue with your connection or the games servers themselves.

If it is indeed the Ubisoft servers that are struggling, which is most likely during the launch period when the most players will be trying to play at once, there is unfortunately nothing you can do but wait for the issues to be resolved on the developer's end. You can check on the XDefiant server status via this website.
