Something strange has happened at the mining facility on Aequitas. Whatever happened, it either chased off or killed the facility staff.
Scanning the planet yields the following text:
“Surface scans report potential alien signatures from within the mining facility. Anomalous life signs detected. Whereabouts of the facility staff unknown.”
When you land, head to your right, and there will be a container next to a skeleton. The container contains most of the credits for this mission, so don’t skip it. When you head into the mine, a Husk will run in front of you. Shoot it and run into the room, turn left and deal with the Husks that are swarming towards you. When they are down, there is a datapad on the bench, and a crate of refined iridium to the right.
When you exit the tunnel ahead, you are again ambushed by an Abomination and five more Husks. Take them all out before they have a chance to get close. You may need to fall back on this one, but it beats losing a squad member, or dying. Before heading up the ramp after you’re clear, grab the iridium off to the left. At the top of the ramp is a locker and a thermal clip. Bypass the locker for some more credits.
When you get close to the top of the ramp, EDI will come over the comm saying that she picked up a massive power signature in the mine, and is likely the source of the Husks. Taking it out would stop them, but you have bigger problems. On the table to the right is another thermal clip, this one will keep respawning, and some power cells. Now you just have to wait out the Husk storm. During this process, keep an eye on the ramp behind you as some Husks will try to come up that way.
Before doing so, grab the credits from the locker, the med-kit in the same hallway, and a second power cell container from the other tunnel. When you are ready destroy the bombs on either side of the machine to end the assignment and get a nice cutscene, ending with a piece of debris crushing a husk.
Note: If you destroy the bombs while standing next to them, the game glitches and you lose all your experience, resources, and credits.
Note: The last locker before the device is tricky to get with the Husks coming at you. However if you kill enough Husks they will eventually stop spawning.
Note: The game auto-saves before you destroy the bombs, and if you end the mission then reload the auto-save, you can bypass the locker without interruption, since the Husks will not have been triggered.
