Nova? No Problem!

Mission Details
**Available** : Complete Marooned **Location** : Janey Springs **Rewards** : XP 126, 5 Moonstones

Janey wants you to open her safe, now that Deadlift is dead and all, but there’s a slight problem. She seems to have forgotten the combination to open it, so she asks you to do it in another way. Once she opens the container nearby, go in and grab the Nova Shield, then head to Regolith Range.

You’ll want to head back to the area with the Scavs, near the large tower. Once the area is clear, get to ground level and look for a shutter-like door, with a switch on the side to open it. If you’re having trouble finding it, it’s right next to the "Scav" graffiti. Inside, you’ll need to disable all the cameras and safe at once with the Nova Shield.

This is the entrance to the room with the safe (left). On the right is a good spot to stand when your shields are depleted and the nova goes off to shock the cameras and safe.

To help you there will be some Scavs, who will happily do more than just deplete your shield. The best way to do this is kill them all, then move into the forcefield to hurt yourself. As soon as you do that, move towards the center of the room quickly, but not in the exact center. It may take a few tries, but once you get it right, grab the items inside and return to Janey to finish.
