Data on the Old World is a Side Quest in NieR: Automata

 

"Pascal asked you to collect information pertaining to the old world. Bring back any interesting tidbits that you find."

"The information pertained to nuclear weapons from the Old World. It could be dangerous in the wrong hands, so it might be best to hand it over to the Commander. Make a choice and deliver the intel to either Pascal or the Commander"

"You attempted to deliver the nuclear weapon intel to Pascal, but he refused to accept such dangerous information"

or

"You delivered the nuclear weapon intel to Commander, who promised to store it in safe location. As token of appreciation, maintenance materials have been placed in 9S' s room."

  

Data on the Old World Objectives

  1. Find Archives about the Old World
  2. Deliver the information on the old world to Pascal
  3. Decide if you should give Nuclear Fission information to Pascal or the Commander

Data on the Old World Walkthrough

  • This quest is available on your second playthrough, when you are 9S and can access Locked Chests.
  • Find all the Archives related to Old World Information. These are locked and hidden inside chests around the world.
  • Once you obtain information on nuclear weapons, a choice is available: give the information to Pascal or to the Commander. Giving it to Pascal has no negative effects, as he refuses the information and rewards you anyway.
  • This ends the quest

 

 

Notes

  • Using chapter select if you haven't turned in Data on the Old World you have to get the book again from the chest even if you already have the archive/item it's associated with (if you load a savefile that had gotten it you can turn it in).
  • You can simply locate and turn in the Nuclear Weapons Information without obtaining all Old World information. Pascal will give you G for each piece of information, but only the Nuclear Weapon Manual is necessary to complete the quest.

      Confirmed as of July 2017, during chapter select: giving the Nuclear text to the Commander in the bunker nets you:

      1 Meteorite
      1 Large Recovery
      1 Stun + 6

          You DO NOT gain a meteorite for handing nuclear to Command. Completely screwed myself over by doing that. Please edit your website x

            I think you just need the Factory Cafeteria Sign, Newspaper Scrap, Filthy Lottery Ticket. Tattered Pamphlet, Rotten Info Sheet, Bulletin Record, Paper Attached to Vehicle, Ragged DVD, and Department Store Flyer for the first section. Not everything list under Old World Information.
