Note: This mission becomes available after campaign Mission 29: Las Catrinas.

To begin this side-quest talk with one of the Las Catrinas NPCs with the quest marker above their head at the Hospital base. After a brief conversation, your objectives will be updated. Exit the base and make your way to Hector’s House which is slightly south of the Theatre fort in the Downtown District. Approach the door with the objective marker and a scene will play.

Afterwards, defend yourself – you’ll be ambushed by Fizzco Security. There are 2-3 Blade Bots, 4-5 Rifle Bots and a pair of Bomb Bots. Deal with the Blade Bots first and then use the environs to keep yourself moving whilst you deal with the ranged attackers. Once they are all dead, and another brief phone conversation, the objectives will change once again.

Fight off the Fizzco ambush (left) and then head to Fargathia to speak with one of the LARPers (right).

At this point, you’ll need to head to the Fargathia base, so either fast travel, or take the scenic route. Once you arrive, speak with the LARPer indicated by the objective marker. Following the conversation, the objective marker will be moved once again.

Our new goal is in the northern part of the Downtown District. When you reach the objective marker, follow the catwalk around the back of the building, kill the Rifle Bots patrolling about and use the swinging poles and vents to reach the target door. Interact with it for yet another scene.

Find the small passage just northwest of the hospital (left) and follow it (right) to the end to the objective marker.

Now that we have found our target, our objectives are going to change a little bit. Now we need to track down and activate a series of sensors in the Downtown area. The first sensor is marked for you and is just below a large blue holographic sign. Approach and interact with it.

This will cause an ‘Apocalypse Meter’ to appear on the left hand side of the screen. In order to activate the sensor, we need to kill enemies close to it. Fortunately a swarm of regular OD will start pouring into the area from the nearby stairs, so go to town on them with everything you have! Note that you will have to keep killing as the meter will slowly decay if you don’t kill enemies fast or close enough.

Interact with the sensor/s (left) and then kill enemies to build the Apocalypse meter (right).

After the first sensor has gone off, make your way to the second. As you arrive nearby, a large blue zone will appear on the mini-map so killing any enemies within this area will do the trick. Again, our goal is to fill the ‘Apocalypse Meter’ by killing as many enemies as we can as quickly as we can. It’s a bit trickier this time as you’ll have both Fizzco (Bomb Bots, Blade Bots) and OD (Regular, Wingers, Blowers) factions battling it out in the area.

Once you have filled the ‘Apocalypse Meter’ at the second sensor, a scene will play to end the side-quest.
