Story Missions

The Real World

Kinzie has found a way for you to get out of the simulation and back into the real world. Make your way to the first waypoint, where you find a door that leads out of the simulation…only it’s not a real door, despite you trying to open it. Once you regain control, slowly move your way across the room and you’ll open the door to find a Zin guarding it.

Keep an eye out for the button you need to press, which will have you kill the Zin and secure his weapon. If you haven’t used one yet, the alien weapons have ammo like other weapons, but they can also overheat. Should this happen, hold down the reload button to cool the weapon and allow you to use it again.

Continue fighting your way through the ship, killing Zin along the way, until you come to a second bridge-like area. Here, you will be swarmed by a lot of Zin, some of which have shields, and you will need to defend this spot until a cutscene occurs, with Kinzie and Keith David rescuing you.

Keep fighting and killing the Zin, using the crates as cover, until your friends finally come to rescue you.

Having finally been rescued, you commandeer the ship and have to escape from the mothership. Your ship will automatically move forward, so just concentrate on moving around to avoid running into the pieces of the larger ship. Also, watch out for enemy aircraft that will be flying forward and turn around to fire at you, so quickly shoot them when they appear.

There will be pieces of the larger ship that rotate, so keep an eye out for them and fly through the openings. Once you get to the end, some more cutscenes will play out and the mission will be over.

You will unlock a variety of things upon completing this mission, such as your own ship, a Gateway to leave the simulation, and some Homies to help you fight in the simulation.
