The Sensor Module is a utility tool in Wuthering Waves. This module lets you find valuable collectibles and items in the scene, but it’s also a key part of progressing through the main quest Echoing Marche. One of the quest objectives asks that you use the sensors to confirm the patrol route, which might prove hard given this is the first time you’ve actually had to equip a utility tool before you can use it.
