This can be a challenging mission, because you will see a stopped two-minute timer that will begin as soon as you grab the first item. You will want a vehicle for this and possibly spawn a second one to plant in Overlook, as you will need to return there while still fighting the time limit. You’ll gain an additional thirty seconds every time you grab one of the arms.

The timer doesn't start until you grab the first arm (left). It's best to ignore the enemies so you can concentrate on collecting the arms (right).

Once you grab the first arm and head to the cluster of the others on the map, you will undoubtedly want to start with the higher-elevated ones, as it’s much easier to simply jump off the cliff and drop to the others than it is to climb to them. Once you have all five arms, quickly return to Zed’s PO Box to finish the mission.
