Mission Details
**Available** : Complete A New Direction **Location** : Nurse Nina (Concordia) **Level** : 11 **Rewards** : XP 2727, 140 dollars, Choice between assault rifle and shotgun

Nurse Nina’s fridge has broken and she needs you to get some special ice to help keep her stuff cool. Turn around and grab the drill, then set off for Triton Flats. The area you’re looking for is Frozen Gulch, which is set off of a little path when you get to the waypoint. Your objective is to place the drill and then wait until it manages to create a piece of special ice.

Note that the ice actually hurts you, so don’t stay for extended periods on it, or you will die. At the first mining spot, you will have to kill three ice shugguraths and the ensuing Rathyds (you are required to kill the shugguraths). At the second spot, you don’t have to do anything but wait for the ice to appear.

The Shugguraths of Ice can easily be taken down by shooting the eyes on them, as those are critical hit points.

Now, as you’re going to the third spot, you should get a call from B4R-BOT from Concordia. He mentions that if you bring him the ice for his drink, then he will give you a shotgun, effectively giving you a choice for who to bring the ice to. However, you have a larger problem to deal with, as a giant shuggurath of ice will spawn. Take it down, grab the ice and bring it to whoever you want to finish the mission.
