The Lesson

Mission AcquisitionRewards
Level 4 Resistance, Faith SeedN/A

Once you reach Level 4 Resistance in the Henbane River region, Faith will once again Bless you and pull you into the Bliss once more.

Get inside the prison

Faith has turned the tables against you and you need to provide the backup as the cultists have taken over the prison. Start by sticking to the right here and follow the prison around to the right until you find a broken bus with another broken car next to it. Use this to get access to the outside wall and follow it to your left and take out the first sniper. There’s one more on the roof of the main prison, stay behind cover and then take him out with any silenced weapon (you can even hit him with a handgun from this distance).

Continue around the wall and stick to cover as you make your way to the next tower and sniper (ignore the Angel on the ground) and take him out when he’s aiming the other way. You can leave the other sniper if you’re careful, drop down onto the ground and scale the wall from the corner near this tower. Once you reach the roof, quickly take cover while the sniper aims and then sneak behind the cultist to take him out. Finally, climb the ladder to reach a vent and Faith.

Use this bus to access the outside wall
Climb towards the roof from here to avoid another sniper.

Secure the area

Now that you’re inside, you’ll need to locate Tracey held somewhere within. Head through the vent and take the cultist out in front of you. Pull out your binoculars and survey the area, tagging all the cultists (most of whom are on the bottom floor).

Continue your descent around to your left and you’ll come upon an opening in the floor where you can perform an air takedown. The rest of the enemies will now spring into life, take out your weapon and back into the room behind you, it’s great for cover. Throw a Proximity Explosive to the right walkway to take some out and then stay in the middle, peering to the left and right to take the cultists out.

This room here is excellent as cover.

Free Tracey

Jump down to the floor and liberate the two hostages before talking to Tracey. You’ll need to grab the County Jail Key, found under the body of a cultist at the back of the room and release Tracey. All that’s left to do now is to confront Faith, make sure you’re prepared and then exit the prison to conclude this mission begin the next.
