Apart from the other changes we will focus on how to complete the quest line and also present the new weapons and classes. At the begging I would like to mention that this event can provide 300 vbucks  and 6500 Storm Tickets – but we will have a full break down on that. Today’s path introduced the new Enforce quests.

Breaker! Breaker! 



Quest Description

Lar’s Van can’t keep up with the strange developments in the sky. Blast open the Van’s doors of preception by collecting encrypted radio components from emergency response vehicles.

Quest Objective

Destroy firetrucks, police cars and ambulances to retrive Encypted Radio parts 0/20.

 

Quest hints

 Destroying a vehicle always drops an encrypted radio part, I saw that the firetrucks can drop even 2 of them. The vehicles can be found in any zone, probably would go for industrial zones and perhaps the city. I did 4 missions on this one, but if you’re lucky you can do it faster. This is a shared quest ( someone can pick those up )

Quest reward


Deep Cuts 



Quest Description

Lars’ sensor upgrade is a success, but no one can understand the new data. The answer to this strange data may lie in Lars’ past. Search any basements to find Lars’ old research. Found in Urban, Suburban and Industrial zones.

Quest Objective

Find Lars’s old research data 0/9

Quest hints

The research data can be found in the basements. Suburban zones should be the best for this quest. You will have to play 2 maps to complete the quest. This quest is individual ( you have to pick those up alone )

Quest reward


Its What’s Inside That Counts 



Quest Description

We need husk data… the gross kind of husk data. So take noprisoners and collect all samples!

Quest Objective

Kill and collect mist monster data 0/10

Quest hints

Killing a mist monster has a chance to drop mist monster data – I would say 50%. The easiest way to do this quest is to do any kind of zone with Destroy The Encampments.

In that case the quest can be done within 1 mission. This is a shared quest ( someone can pick those up )

Quest reward

 


Liner Notes

Steel Wool mania is sweeping Homebase. Scour the streets for anything Steel Wool related. Found mostly in Urban and Suburban zones.

Quest Objective

Quest hints

I felt like they were placed mostly in the survivor shelters. I this mission I went for the Suburban zone and managed to complete the quest within 1 mission. This quest is individual ( you have to pick those up alone )

Encore 



Quest Description

Lars is ready to rock. Who are we to stand in the way?

Quest Objective

Deploy speakers and blast Steel Wool’s greatest hits to repel the storm 0/7

Quest reward

 


Last Known Position 



Quest Description

Lars has asked us not to search for Carols. So let’s play it cool… as we search the rooftops for Carlos’ research equipment. Found mostly in Urban, Suburban and Industrial zones.

Quest Objective

Find and interact with the research equipment someone’s been installing on the rooftops 0/5

Quest hints

Industrial zones is the best to find them, there is a lot of rooftops and this quest can be done in 1 mission. This quest is individual ( you have to pick those up alone )

Oh, Wait. Maps! 



Quest Description

If we’re going to head out west, we’ll need maps. Search the industrial zone for vehicles likely to have maps. Trucks are easiest to find in Industrial zones.

Quest Objective

Gather maps from Truck Tractors and RV vehicles 0/15

The easiest way to complete this is by running the industrial zone, if u scout the area carefully you will be able to do this quest within 1 mission. This is a shared quest ( someone can pick those up )

Cleverboards 



Quest Description

Commander, I have came up with a foolproof hoverboard based plan to track Carlos down! The only problem is, these hoverboards are idiots! I need your help. Searching rooftops for AC units should help us find the parts we need. Found in Urban, Suburban and Industrial zones.

Quest Objective

Gather AC control circuits from AC units from the Smart Hoverboards 0/99

Quest hints

 I did 2 times the industrial zone for this quest (as recommended you can do it in 1 mission in the city zone), the air conditioners are found on rooftops or on the ground, they are fairly easy to locate you should run each building in a circle until eventually you get a ! quest indicator on map. There is one thing you need to know also, I discovered it myself – and had to run another mission, you cannot break this conditioners with stairs/walls ( perhaps shooting wont also ) because it won’t drop the AC Control Unit. So keep in mind use your gathering tool for this. This is a shared quest ( someone can pick those up )

Quest reward


Hover Over Yonder  


Quest Description

Didn’t took a screenshot

Quest Objective

Deploy Smart Hoverboard 0/?

This quest is fairly easy, just go to a Suburban zone and smash the bookshelves. The drop rate on destruction is about 30%. This is a shared quest ( someone can pick those up )

  Krypton Pistol Schematic

  Helium Shotgun Schematic

  Argon Assault Schematic

 Each of this weapons is an elemental weapon ( Energy – effective against all elements ) as a base. They do not come with fixed perks. The weapons use Energy Cell ammunition ( unless reworked the weapons would be inefficient in usage due to the high crafting costs of the ammunition )

When you start you will have to find 6 modules that look exactly the same as the once in Repair The Shelter, although I think they are even less visible.

At this time the typical RTL mission begins. Stage one deposit 2 Bluglo, stage two deposit 2 Bluglo.
