Upgrade - Research Project: Sniper Rifle Damage

After speaking with Garrus and offering to help him with his request, you will obtain the location of the side mission. Enter your galaxy map and travel to the Citadel . After disembarking, look at the map. Make your way to the Warehouse location. Enter the door and have a conversation with a Volus here along with a pair of Krogan bodyguards (Renegade action). He will tell you where to go next. Head to the nearest rapid transport console and use it to travel to the Warehouse District.

As soon as you land, you will see a short cutscene. As it ends, eliminate the two Blue Suns mercenaries and enter the door. Look to the left and just inside the door to find a trash can with credits inside. Continue to the left and the large blue crate in front of you will open and a pair of LOKI Mechs will crawl out to engage you. Smash them, then work your way through the stacks of crates to the right killing any mechs or Blue Sun s mercenaries that get in the way. Just before you reach the giant doors leading to the next warehouse area, look on the wall to the left for a wall safe .

Watch out for the large crates (left), they often contain LOKI Mechs (right).

Continue through the doors here, as you enter look straight ahead to salvage some circuit boards and a med kit, then follow the path around to the right. Turn the corner and work your way up the long hall here. Keep an eye out for hooks dropping LOKI mechs in front of you and also be vigilant for large storage crates being lowered to your level as they will usually open and spit out a couple of LOKI mechs each. As you move up, look in the second area to the right to find a pair of bypassable circuit boards. When you reach the far end, defeat the remaining Blue Sun forces holed up here and then hack the laptop on the desk and loot the nearby power cells, canister of refined Iridium and the med kit if required. When you are ready to go on hit the bridge control.

Take cover and work your way across the bridge killing the two mercenaries inthe immediate area. Slowly move up and a Blue Sun Commander and a small group of troopers will appear to attack you. Stay in cover and eliminate these baddies. When they drop, a YMIR mech will be lowered into the area and another couple of mercenaries will join in its assault on your position. When they are all dead, enter the door on the left side of the area.

Explore the office here for a medical station, some power cells, a hackable wall safe and a PDA containing forged IDs (for a side-mission) .

After taking out the YMIR and other Blue Suns (left), enter the next room and loot it. Grab the forged IDs for a side-quest (right).

Open the windows for a quick conversation with Garrus and when you are ready to fight once more, exit through the door on the right side of the room. Hack the terminal in the small sub-room for Research Project (Sniper Rifle Damage). Then exit through the left door to confront Harkin.

As you enter, cruise to the left and take cover here. As you do a group of LOKI Mechs will be dropped in front of you and several Blue Suns mercenaries will appear on top of various crates and vantage points around the room. Slowly move between cover and eliminate the threats as you do. When you reach the first platform you can vault up to on the right, do so and then again to the next right-hand platform to find a hackable data pad. Return to the floor. Climb up the platforms straight ahead and use them to reach the ground on the opposite side.

As you land, two YMIR Mechs will be dropped in. Climb back up a couple of platforms so they are unable to reach you and take cover behind the crates here. As usual, use your team’s various abilities to eliminate the barriers, then the armor and then drill them with whatever you feel like until they are scrap metal.

When both of the YMIR Mechs have been dealt with, return back down to the floor and climb the ramp ahead. Go to the left side of the building and you will see a series of platforms that are arranged in such a way that they can be climbed with continued cover vaulting. Before you do that however, you should eliminate the enemies on the platforms above.

Once the coast is clear, climb up the platforms until you reach the top. At this point a lengthy scene will kick in and some decisions will have to be made (there is a Paragon event here).

Following the scene the mission will be complete.
