Story Missions


Oh. It broke. This chap is just a constant source of ire.

Exit the area. It’s worth noting that you can now use the elevator to the south. Activate it from up here and it will act as a permanent short-cut to and from Herbert. Leave the Rustyard.

Washburne is located the the south of Wurmwater, so make your way there by foot or by Skif – your choice.

Once inside the new area note that you’ll be fighting Hyperion bots from now on, so adopt armaments best suited to dealing with the mechanical drones. Work your way through the linear path, grabbing the Poly-Krypten as you go. The best advise you can take is to remember to watch out for loaders. The last thing you want is for the suicide bots to get the better of you.

Three of the pieces are easy, but the fourth will require a bit of boss extermination…

Boss – H3RL-E

This is a gigantic loader, and is unbelievably simple to dispatch. The main piece of advise is simply to keep moving. True to his namesake, H3RL-E will indeed hurl barrels at you from time to time, so make sure you’re always moving; these projectiles will soar over most cover spots. As long as you have a good Slag or Acid weapon, H3RL-E will Fall-E in no time. Sorry.


Grab the final piece of Krypton and then work your way back to Herbert. Everything should be dead, so it won’t be hard.

Upon returning to Herbert you will receive an optional objective to give him a present from Scarlett. As far as we can tell, there is no advantage or disadvantage either way, so it’s absolutely up to you. Depends how much you like ol’ Herbie.

Present or no, return to Scarlett with the final compass piece to complete the quest.
