Once you leave the mining vessel and look ahead to your left you’ll notice a large organism to the far left of the docking entrance to the Brusilov. As you approach an enemy will emerge, firing little projectiles at you. They don’t do that much damage so ignore them and just concentrate your fire on the main enemy.
Compact Standard Frame:
Once you arrive on the Greely, go over to the right corner of the main lobby and below the space helmet you can get the part.
While on the Greely you will have to clear out an electrical field by removing a panel from a generator. After the stairs become clear go down them then check in the middle of the computer console for the part.
After you unlock the room on the Greely with the Tungston bar you can get this part right on the table inside.
After you arrive on the Terra Nova you will have to go from the exterior to the interior. In the room where you regain your oxygen you can find this part.

This one is actually kind of hard to miss. Once you make it to the room with a suit kiosk and a work bench, look next to the kiosk for the weapon part.
Hammond’s Heavy Frame:
This is a very good piece so you don’t want to miss it! After you enter the excavation site, and clear it out you will need to take a ladder down to progress. At the bottom of that ladder turn around and use telekensis to get it.
Towards the end of the level you will need to activate another generator. Before you do that though, look at the table near the generator for the part.

Once you start traveling up the cliff side around the mountain, keep an eye out for a cave that goes into said mountain. It will be near one of the red flags and inside is the ammo support mod among other things to loot.
After you make it to what looks like a broken lift on the side of the cliff, the objective marker will want you to go left instead of right. If you go right you will run into a bench, and if you go past that you will get the ripper core.
