Briefing[edit | edit source]
Preparations are underway for a full-scale assault on Crest's data storage facility.
The facility is well guarded against intruders and we expect to encounter heavy resistance in the form of both fixed and mobile security measures.
Our goal is to neutralize both and safeguard the facility for a follow-up investigation.
Your object is twofold: Destroy the generators that power the security system, and eliminate all MT patrols.
We've employed multiple Ravens and plan to attack on two fronts.
This mission will be a joint effort between Union and Mirage forces. We expect all participants to carry out their orders as instructed. That is all.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Start the mission and proceed normally to Sector E-31. Upon entering take out the Aepyornis MT directly in front. After doing so, take out the other Aepyornis MT to the right. Clear the sector by finishing off the Puffer to the left. Proceed through the next hallway and turn left, destroying both Four Sit L turrets. Enter Sector E-31 and take out the two Puffer MTs floating near the entrance. Clear out the rest of the sector destroying the ground Aepyornis MT and then the four turrets located above. If you boost into the area while firing, you can take out the ground MT without taking damage from the turrets.
Head back through the sector's only entrance and proceed to the left towards Sector N-40. Upon opening the doors, boost backwards and prepare to fire on the Gibbon MT that approaches. Continue normally towards Sector N-41. Upon entering, you'll find Flying Fix battling two Gibbon MTs and two turrets. The Gibbons should be your priority and easy to take out as they target Flying Fix.
Proceed to Sector W-07. Upon entering, take out the Aepyornis and face the hallway to the right. Be ready to boost backwards while firing on the Gibbon and Puffer guarding the path. Backtrack and turn left to continue on downwards through Crest's facility. Take out the two Aepyornis MTs at the edge of your FCS. Should it have sufficient range, you'll be able to take them out without either of them firing on you. Proceed through the first S-30 door. You'll see an enemy behind the second set of S-30 doors, so open the door while boosting backwards. Blast the Gibbon MT that lunges at you and advance. Turn left and enter sector S-31. Take out the enemies without worrying too much about Twinhead-W (his death is scripted and hard to avoid).
Continue and be prepared to boost backwards and fire the moment you open the exit to S-31. Another Gibbon MT should attempt to ambush you. Continue, take out the turret and enter Sector C-00. Inside you'll find the three generators powering the facility. Destroy them to complete the mission.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Raven starts in Sector E-30 which has already (presumably) been cleared.
