FIND THE ELITE SMUGGLERS

There is a group of skilled smugglers known as the Elite who possess vast knowledge of the routes and Wastelands and are incredibly experienced in their trade. They carefully handpick high-quality vehicles for traversing through the barren lands. You may encounter Anderson Composites vehicles at various checkpoints during your journey, as they are considered some of the finest. If you spot them at a checkpoint and inquire about the vehicle, you can earn a gold coin. Additionally, sharing a video reel showcasing the rigs on Instagram with the accompanying text can earn you an additional gold coin.

Outpost #1: 
The Electrical Substation

MISSION:

To gain access to the secure area where the PROJECT STARFIRE COMPONENT is being held, search for posters hidden in the outpost. These posters contain the codes to give to the Wolverine spy who will hack the substation system and disable the electric fence. This will help to distract the Wastelander Guard. Once in the secure area, meet the General to steal the STARFIRE ammo and the fuel cells.

LOCATION: TIME LIMIT- 20 mins

GAIA ROUTE #1 CHECKPOINT #1

The Wastelanders Electrical Substation is where the outpost gets its energy. Unfortunately, one of the Russian engineers has been taken hostage there. We'll need to create a diversion to retrieve the STARFIRE weapon component that's being guarded. A Wolverine Scout has located the component and what's left of the Russian engineer. The scout discovered that if you hack the unit, it will emit a high-pitched sound which can momentarily kill the power to the electrified fence and create a distraction for us to access the secure area and retrieve the component.

 

The spy hid three codes on posters and hid them throughout the outpost .

Use the clues provided by the scout to search the outpost for the codes.

a. Frequency-Look near outer-space

b. Gain- search near the Moto garage

c. Range -Look for the MODEL T 's

 

Before you hack the electrical system you must STEAL ONE of the fuel pods without being detected. We were able to bribe Master Blasters sidekick named Toady. He has left the fuel pods next to the electrified gate unattended. You must steal one of the fuel pods undetected.

 

 Once you have identified the correct codes and stolen a fuel pod find the Wolverine Scout near a bus station of the outpost and he will input the correct 3 code 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.

MISSION:

LOCATIONTIME LIMIT- 10 mins

GAIA ROUTE #1 CHECKPOINT #2

OVERVIEW:The Wolverines have successfully located the escape hatch of the Russian Weapons facility, which is situated approximately 3 miles away from the actual facility. An intricate tunnel system is used to access this exit. One of the Russian Engineers was able to escape through the hatch and sent out an encrypted message, which we managed to intercept. Upon deciphering the message, we discovered that there is a 4-digit safe code required to gain access to PROJECT STARFIRE, which is currently stored in the safe. The Engineer has the PROTOTYPE in his possession and is awaiting an EVAC from the Russian infantry. We believe this second message contains the encoded code for unlocking the safe. It is essential that your team travels through the Wastelands to reach the escape hatch before Dragov the Russian special forces arrive to retrieve the safe. Once you arrive at the hatch, search for the Engineer and use the second encoded message to find the code and open the safe.:

TRADE AND TRACKING

CEASE FIRE

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. STEAL THE GOLD/SILVER TOW HOOK OFF MASTER BLASTERS VEHICLE.

LOCATION: TIME LIMIT- 10 mins

GAIA ROUTE #1 CHECKPOINT #3

Overview:

Master Blaster the Wastelander Warlord will be transporting the Russian engineer with the schematics. We need to have a tracking device on the vehicle to see where they move the engineer.

 

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

 

We need to track down the Russian Engineer who has the schematics for PROJECT STARFIRE. We must place a tracking device on their vehicle to find them and recover the schematics before they fall into the wrong hands.

 

A team member will sell fuel pods to distract Master Blaster while another team member plants a tracking device using a Pro Eagle jack and place the Gold or Silver Moose Knuckle Tow Hook with an embedded antenna to Master Blasters vehicle. 

 

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 the deal and things go south.

supplies:

- Magnetic Tracking device to plant underneath Master Blasters car

-Moose Knuckle Tow hook with embedded antenna to attach to Master Blasters Bumper.

- Fuel pods to sell

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,

This is the location where they were previously held as a hostage Vladimir, the lead Russian Engineer for Project Starfire. The Scout is currently hiding among the crowd in the small outpost, but we have received a description of their attire from their final transmission. They will be wearing a black hat, goggles, a burgundy neck scarf, leather gloves, and a green canvas satchel. To make contact, you must provide the secret passphrase.

    Once you locate the Wolverine Scout, they will provide you with the plan to get the location of Vladimir from Petrol. However, be cautious when approaching people as you could potentially blow your cover. It may be necessary to bribe the Wastelands with gold to ensure their silence.
