A vital depot has gone silent, leaving allied fleets short on desperately needed fuel. Investigate the depot and get it operational again.
The mission becomes available after completing the Priority: Geth Dreadnought mission.
Travel to Cyone of the Silean Nebula. This mission takes place on the multiplayer map Firebase Reactor. Unlike most N7 missions, this one involves Reaper opponents instead of Cerberus. Powers that can deal with barriers will come in handy given the number of barrier engines you will find here.
Toxic Gas EditLee Riley and she will explain the situation. A container behind her will be moved to reveal a corridor. Do not attempt to go near the left edge as the area below is filled with toxic gas. On your right, you will come across a Crane Display terminal but before activating it, walk along the same corridor and salvage spare parts worth 4000 credits.
Activate the crane and a display will appear. The display shows a live video feed which is recording from behind you. You will need to use the 3 buttons to move 2 containers, which are displayed on the left of the screen, to the right. Note - the crane begins already holding the first crate.
Once the path is cleared, Riley will then get into position, sending you to go find a way to vent the area. From the Crane Display, follow the path all the way around to your right. There will be a control console to vent the toxic gas. After activating it, head to the area that just opened up. You can find a PDA next to the Fuel Rod Control for 3000 credits, and a medkit in the same area far back by the yellow vehicle.
Barrier Engines EditTip: Before initiating the controls, you could walk around the area, look for 6 Reaper Barrier Engines and destroy them - this will tip the coming battles to your favor. While a couple of them were more secluded, most jut out like a sore thumb and are hard to miss.
Come back down the way you came, and either go down the ladder or stairs. Go to the fuel rod control and unlock the fuel rods. Husks and Marauders will now attack. After you have cleared the area, you will need to seal the two moderator tanks.
Restart the Reactors Edit
Near the reactor controls is another pad with 3000 credits. Next, restart the reactor. After you so do, more enemies will attack. Husks will come from the ground, but Marauders will drop in from above. If you couldn't find the Barrier Engines before, you'll be able to find them now, and you may need to destroy them to make your enemies less durable.
Once the area is clear, Riley will talk to you over comm and say how they are not going to make it. You can choose to help or ask her to keep at it. You will be required to send a squad member if you choose to help.
Brute in the Reactor EditBrute, plus yet another barrier engine inside the reactor chamber. You'll want to draw the Brute out away from the barrier engine so that it doesn't get continual recharges. Once you dispatch the enemies, initiate the final startup on the console. Go straight down to the extraction point.
You have the option to talk to Riley (if she survives) and pick up any missed items before you leave to go back on the Normandy. Completing this mission gives you +5 Reputation, 10,000 credits, and the Advanced Starship Fuel War Asset.
E-Mail: Reporting in Edit
