Oldtown Quest

Start

Talk to your survivor contact after completing the Survivors Quest.

Outline

The Oldtown quest is slightly different depending on who you choose as a contact in the Survivors Quest, but all routes involve:

  • Infiltrating the Records Office
  • Accessing the Records Vault
  • Finding the particular piece of evidence about Special Projects (depending on Survivor contact)

Infiltrating the Records Office

Several options to enter the Records Office:

  • Or: Access via the OmniTech BigDig:
    • Acquire the Juryrigged Antenna effect and hacking gear.
    • Construction site disguises / Metros Light may help avoid some combat encounters while you are here.
    • Find the OmniTech BigDig hacking encounter and Command or Command+View the Drive Control until you position it.
    • Engage the Drill Control with a Command.
    • Find the Dig Doug Down encounter to enter the vault directly (skip "Accessing the Records Vault" below).
  • Once in the office, you can re-enter more easily in the future by acquiring a Midgard records ID.
