This is a very short assignment and you'll be racing against the clock. The only enemies present are geth, so pick squadmates and powers for dealing quickly with synthetics. Energy Drain, Overload, and Disruptor Ammo will all help you here. AI Hacking can also be a particularly good choice, providing you with much-needed distraction.
Walkthrough EditYou have only six minutes to complete the whole mission, so get moving.
Before reaching the first door, there is a pad containing some logs; reading them doesn’t absorb time. Head up to the first door, and like on the N7: Javelin Missiles Launched assignment, bypassing a lock takes time. Once the lock is bypassed, be careful: there are three Geth Troopers in the room. Take care of them quickly, since every second counts.
Once they are down, access the medical station on the left hand side to get some medi-gel, grab the iridium behind the crates that is on the same side as well, and access the console on the right to unlock the door leading to the engine room. Once the console is bypassed, head into the engine room.Geth Rocket Troopers as well as Geth Troopers.
Once the enemy fire dies down, find the first switch and activate it; it's a short distance behind the cover at the front of the left side of the room. Once you're done with the first switch, head back down to the front of the room, grab the iridium partly hidden behind the cover on the left side, then cross the trench to the right side of the room. Another wave of geth will probably have arrived by now, so you'll likely want to sprint.
Note: There are infinite waves of geth, so you'll need to take advantage of the lulls between waves to promptly move and access the switches.
The right side of the engine room is a mirror image of the left, including the cover at the front near the balconies and the switch a short distance behind it. Follow the same procedure, take out the geth until there's a lull in the enemy fire, then activate the switch. Once both switches are activated, dash to the ramp on the right side and run up to the upper rear area behind the engine. You have to bypass the console at the top of the ramp to reactivate the engines. Don’t worry -- it’s in cover, so enemy fire isn't a problem, but again it eats time, so be fast and accurate. Once the engines are reactivated, you're done.
Tip: This assignment can be almost trivial for Infiltrators, as their Tactical Cloak allows them to ignore all enemies after the first group. Just activate the cloak immediately before hitting each switch, and enemies will ignore you, allowing you to succeed no matter how many geth remain on the balconies.
