PSA: Hidden perk to being a Vanguard!

[u][b]SPIN METAL BY DOZENS[/b][/u] Yes, the vanguard obtain an obscene amount of spinmetal. While doing various vanguard tasks, you may stumble upon a mission icon labeled with a star, prompting you to assassinate some rouge enemy. Upon completing the task you are rewarded approximately 11 spinmetal! [i]But wait, there's more! [/i] Upon reaching Vanguard rank 2, this amount [b]doubles[/b]! Yes, by doing 2 mere vanguard side missions, you can obtain ~45 spinmetal! That's almost an entire stack of item space in your inventory! What are you going to do with all of it? If only there were a way to exchange it for something of value? Hmm... [spoiler]Not to mention the ease of obtaining other valuable resources once the full game is out *wink wink*[/spoiler]

    Interesting thought I had when I learned that the beacon quests specifically gave spinmetal: If we assume each planet's exploration areas give a single type of material, this would only confirm four different explorable terrains. One of the materials specifically mentions Venus. Spinmetal is on earth. We may find out what we'll find on the moon tomorrow, and Mars is another explore that'll probably yield a unique material. Of course this is all speculation based on what I've seen so far. Your thoughts on the matter?
