      The most early you can get all the 6 complex gadgets is when you are in your 2nd playthrough with 9s. You need to have the dlc "3C3C1D119440927" and go to the arena of the forest. Cleared a first time the rank 3 of this arena and do it again. Among 3 items, you can randomely get a complex gadget (sometimes you will get an other rare item instead of this). In the same way, you can get meteorite on the rank 2 !

          Repeating the quest only allows you to gather 4 complex gadgets. Even after selling one and redoing the quest, you cant get more than 4 of of it.
