Tier 1

Objective: Go to the Prometheus Initiative Camp

Head for the location marked on the map. Beware that due to the sabotage oriented nature of this mission, you should be prepared to avoid the strong filth enemies in the area. It’s a good idea to have a purge ability ready in case you get into a fight as the enemies have a huge evade rating buff that makes them hard to hit.

Objective: Examine the scientist’s tablet

There’s a dead CDC agent lying near the filthy water at (350,985). Interact with the tablet next to the body to advance the mission.


Objective: Search the tent

Go to the designated area and you will see a tent. There is an object of interest inside, which is the laptop on the table.

Objective: Gain access to the computer logs

The code is to be found somewhere inside the tent, but if you can’t find it, look at the image below this text for the solution.


Tier 2

Objective: Shut down the pumping station’s power

Head for the location marked on the map. You’ll find a power switch on the wall there. Remember to keep a distance from the filthy enemies.


Objective: Turn off the control valve

This one can be a little hard to reach, but try to avoid landing in the filth when you try to get to it. It’s between two large pipelines.


Objective: Override the pressure controls

Keep going around the building in the same direction. The pressure controls are just around the corner. Note that there might be filthy enemies right around that corner.


Objective: Turn the power back on

You should know where the power switch is by now :)


Tier 3

Objective: Purge Storage Unit A

You need to climb up the store units using the ladder on them. The first one is marked on the map. Be extremely cautious as it is quite fatal to have enemies coming at you here during this particular stage.


Objective: Purge Storage Unit B

Same thing, different storage unit. I recommend going around the filthy water, not across it. You will want to avoid filth damage and ecountering a filth enemy at the same time.


Objective: Purge Storage Unit C

Last unit. Look out for filth periodically coming out where the ladder is.


Tier 4

Objective: Find Dr Themis

Go to the door marked on the map. Dr Themis will step outside as soon as you get close to the door. Be prepared for a filthy fight.

Objective: Kill the filth-infected Dr Themis

Beware of his AoE filth attacks. Other than that, it shouldn’t prove a challenge to take him down. The mission will end once he is defeated.
