We've lost contact with the Howard Sea Base in the Idonia Ocean.
According to their last transmission, units of unknown origin invaded
the facility and planted explosives there.

The base is a mining facility and we believe this to be a corporate
assault. No other details are available, as our satellite is disable
due to interference with Phobos.

Head to the base and collect and defuse all explosives. If enemy
are encountered destroy them immediately. Good luck.

Not a very difficult mission, you just need to disarm all the bombs on the map. You don't actually need to kill any enemies there. If you're afraid of falling in the water, just equip hover legs and that will do the trick. The other notable thing about this mission is that for some reason, all of the enemies are armed solely with flamethrowers. Therefore, it is extra beneficial just to avoid them whenever possible, and to bring practically any gun (anything but your own flamethrower will suffice) to dispose of the units guarding the explosives from a safe range. Lastly, the time limit is not exactly strict, but if you run out of time the mission will end in failure. Do not waste any time on the enemies that you can evade and just focus on finding the explosives.


  • Don't take too long, there's no timer but you will fail the mission if the bombs explode.
