Outpost #1: 
The Electrical Substation

MISSION:

Hack the substation system to distract the Wastelander Guard and disable the electric fence in order to gain access to the secure area where the PROJECT STARFIRE COMPONENT is being held. Meet the General in the secure area to get the intel on Outpost #2.

RECONNAISSANCE 

Capture a spy video of Master Blaster at the outpost and send the following message to mission control (instagram). "CONFIRMED-Master Blaster is at the outpost for the @smugglersruns PROJECT STARFIRE MISSION. #SMUGGLERSRUNS

LOCATION: TIME LIMIT- 20 mins

GAIA ROUTE #1 CHECKPOINT #1

OVERVIEW:

The Wastelanders Electrical Substation serves as the energy source location for the outpost. One of the Russian engineers has been brought here as a hostage. We have sent in a Wolverine Scout who has been able to locate the weapon component and what's left of the Russian engineer. The component is being guarded and we will need to create a diversion to be able to sneak in and retrieve the weapon component. The scout monitored the electrical substation and identified that if you hack the unit it will emit a high pitched sound which should accomplish two key things. First it will kill the power to the electrified fence and second give us the distraction we need to get access to the secure area and retrieve the component. The spy was able to transmit the information for you to identify the correct sequence to hack the system. You should be able to watch the video of the sequence and match the pattern before arriving to the outpost. The only catch is that the references to the cipher were removed and hidden in the outpost.

 

Use the clues provided by the scout to search the outpost for the decoder reference.

a. Frequency- Look near outer-space

b. Gain- search near the moto garage

c. Range -"Hay" is for MODEL T 's

Once you have identified the correct settings find the Wolverine Scout near a bus station of the outpost and he will input the correct sequence into the interface to hack the electrical system and help you gain access to the secure area. You will also need to steal the fuel pods from the secure area to later sell to Master Blaster at Outpost #3. Good Luck.

Outpost #2: 
The escape hatch

MISSION:

Find the Russian weapons facility escape hatch and the engineer, decipher the message with the 4 digit code to open the safe and retrieve the PROJECT STARFIRE TEST UNIT

LOCATIONTIME LIMIT- 10 mins

GAIA ROUTE #1 CHECKPOINT #2

OVERVIEW::

We have identified the location of the Russian Weapons facility escape hatch. This exit is about 3 miles away from the actual weapons facility and uses an intricate tunnel system to the escape hatch. One of the Russian Engineers attempted to flee through the escape hatch. While doing so he sent out an encrypted message which we intercepted. Our team was able to decipher the message and found that there is an encoded message for a 4 digit safe code. We also have confirmation that the Engineer has the PROJECT STARFIRE test blaster in the safe and is waiting for the Russian infantry for an EVAC. He references another message but it was never sent so he must have it on his person. We believe that encoded message will have the four digit code to unlock the safe and gain access to PROJECT STARFIRE. Your team will need to travel through the Wastelands to the escape hatch and get there before the Russian special forces arrive to retrieve the safe. Once you get  to the escape hatch, search for the Engineer and for the second encoded message, decipher the code and open the safe. We will have a Wolverine Scout in the area to assist you for safe passage without being detected.Good Luck.

Bring your STARFIRE ammo with you!

Outpost #3: 
TRADE AND TRACKING

Mission:

Meet Master Blaster to sell the fuel pods as a distraction to place the tracking device on his vehicle without being caught and don't blow your cover or there could be a consequence.

LOCATION: TIME LIMIT- 10 mins

GAIA ROUTE #1 CHECKPOINT #3

Overview:

Master Blaster the Wastelander Warlord is going to be transporting the Russian engineer with the schematics and we need to have a tracking device on his vehicle so we can see where he moves the engineer.

 

The General was able to arrange a deal with Toady, Master Blasters Henchmen to sell the fuel pods to Master Blaster. Fuel pods are a highly sought after item so we peaked his interest. When you get to the meeting location for the deal we will have an ulterior motive then simply selling the fuel pods.

 

We need to place the tracking device onto his vehicle to track where he has the Russian Engineer captive. This Russian Engineer has the design and build schematics of PROJECT STARFIRE. It is crucial that we find the engineer and recover the schematics so they don’t fall into the hands of the Russians or the Wastelanders.

One of the SMUGGLERS is going to have to make the deal with Master Blaster and sell the fuel pods to draw his attention so that the other team member can sneak up to his vehicle and place the tracking device.  We have a Wolverine Scout who will be on location undercover as a wastelander and has the Pro Eagle jack to lift the car and plant the tracking device.

 

Your team will need to do this without being caught. Once the tracking device is planted, wrap up the negotiation deal, sell the fuel pods for as much gold as you can and get out of there before Master Blaster changes his mind and things go south.

supplies:

- Tracking device to plant underneath Master Blasters car

- Fuel pods to sell

    Outpost #4: 
    DOG TOWN
    feast in the wastelands

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    BEFORE arriving at Dog Town find the SINCLAIR fuel depot at 32787 CA-18, Lucerne Valley. Quickly fill the tank and then immediately go to the checkpoint location. Blend in by getting food at the BBQ pit paying one gold coin per person and eating at a table outside to scope out the location. You have 20 minutes to eat and then will have 15 mins to complete the mission.

    Mission:

    The tracking device has led us to DOG TOWN, We have intel that Vladimir the lead Russian Engineer may be held hostage here. We also know that Petrol who is Master Blasters Commander is currently in Dog Town which is the largest outpost in the Wastelands.

    You will need to find the Wolverine Scout in Dog Town by identifying the articles of clothing the scout is wearing,

     

    We were told the scout would be wearing a black hat, goggles, a burgundy neck scarf, leather gloves, and a green canvas satchel

    TIP: Look for specific articles of clothing to find the Wolverine Spy.

    Provide the scout with the passphrase: 

    “There once was a time when we could say what we wanted to without fear of death from the regime, we fight for those freedoms for our children”.

    If you choose the incorrect person and get hassled by the wastelanders, bribe them with gold to not blow your cover,

    Blend in by feasting with Wastelanders. Await further instruction to depart to the next outpost to find Master Blaster.

    LOCATION: TIME LIMIT- 30 mins

    GAIA ROUTE #1 CHECKPOINT #4

    Overview:

    The Wolverine Scout has confirmed that Petrol who is Master Blasters Commander is in Dog Town. They were holding Vladimir the Russian Engineer for Project Starfire as a hostage. The Wolverine scout has been at the Dog Town outpost and is trying to hide amongst the crowd in the small outpost. We lost communication with the scout but we received a description of what the scout was wearing with the final transmission. We were told the scout will be wearing a black hat, goggles, a burgundy neck scarf, leather gloves, and a green canvas satchel. Once you make contact, provide him with the secret passphrase “There once was a time when we could say what we wanted to without fear of death from the regime, we fight for those freedoms for our children”. Once you find the Wolverine Scout he will give you the intel needed. Be careful because if you approach the wrong person you could blow our cover so be prepared to bribe the Wastelands with gold to shut them up. Once you find the Wolverine Scout and get the Intel you need you will need to get some food at the BBQ Pit and blend in so as to not draw attention to yourself. You will be notified when we have the all-clear to proceed.
