The Targeting Beacon is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII. There are two versions, the normal enemy accompanying the PSICOM Tracker and the enemy in Eden accompanying the Sanctum Seraph. This is a missable entry in the Intel if the player does not use Libra on it in both Vile Peaks and Eden.
It does not appear in the field, and can only be brought into play by the PSICOM Tracker who tries to place it near party members. The accompanying Uhlan will then focus its Guided Missiles attack at the Targeting Beacon, dealing heavy damage to anyone nearby. The Beacon itself is quite weak.
Targeting Beacon should be eliminated as soon as possible to prevent Uhlan's Guided Missiles attack. Alternatively, if characters are naturally attacking and moving away from the Beacon, it can be left alone until the Guided Missiles attack has ended.
