Nakmor scouts have reported that many of Elaaden's scavengers take refuge in a flophouse hidden in a canyon. A concentrated population of troublemakers might be cause for concern.

Acquisition Edit

This mission can be started in two ways:

Walkthrough Edit

Head to New Tuchanka and speak with the Injured Krogan Scout to acquire this mission. The scout tells Ryder that he is concerned that at some point the scavengers will decide to attack the colony when resources run low. The scout doesn't want get injured again by the "squischies" when they get desperate.

A navpointMEA Tracked Objective Map Iconis then added to the Scavenger Flophouse ("Misery") region.

Note: If Ryder comes across the Flophouse on an unrelated mission or through exploration, the first objective is bypassed and the second objective starts automatically.

Investigate The Flophouse Edit

When Ryder gets close to the navpoint, the next objective will be added.

Enter The Command Center Edit

When Ryder enters the Flophouse from the east gate, Outlaw forces will attack Ryder. Engage the initial force and head towards the upper floor of the central building. When Ryder reaches the upper floor of the central building, a new set of objectives will be added.

The Security Alarm Edit

Use The Security Console To Disable The Alarm Edit

There are multiple alarm consoles throughout the entire complex and any alarm console will silence the alarm. Consoles that can silence the security alarm are marked MEA Security Alarm Map Icon. Ryder will be under constant attack until the alarm is silenced.

Head into the room on the upper floor of the central building and interact with the console to disable the alarm. Head back outside the room and defeat the remaining forces in this area.

Entering from the east gate, the structures in this area:

  • There is a small single story building with a lootable container on the right.
  • There is a large central building with a Console on the upper level that will disable the security alarm. There is also a datapad in this room that gives the mission Crisis Response.
  • There is a complex of tanks and piping to the center right.
  • There is a guard tower on the left.

There is a large gap in the rocks to the north (with a large yellow vehicle in the middle) that leads into the rest of the Flophouse.

In the next area, past the yellow vehicle, Ryder will come under attack from additional Outlaw forces this time including a Hydra. Defeat the forces.

The structures in this area:

  • On the left after entering, are two tanks and a small building.
  • A series of large piping and tanks are to the right.
  • Straight ahead is a two story building:
    • On the lower floor, there is a lootable container and a Console that will deactivate the alarm.
    • On the upper floor, there is a Security Console to be scanned for the Secure Storage room and a large lootable container.

The Security Alarm Edit

Use The Security Console To Disable The Alarm Edit

Past the two story building is the command center and Ryder will come under attack again by more Outlaw forces. The alarm will start again. Head back into the lower floor of two story building and interact with the marked Console MEA Security Alarm Map Icon to deactivate the alarm. Ryder will be under constant attack until the alarm is silenced.

Defeat the forces and then head to the doorway leading to the location of the navpoint (inside the command center). Ryder won't be able to get to the navpoint as the doors are locked but a new objective will be added.

Override The Security Station Edit

Optional: Access The Secure Storage Room Edit

Before moving forward, Ryder can either choose to enter the command center right away or do an optional set of objectives to enter the secure storage room. Ryder MUST enter the secure storage before the command center or the secure storage is locked out.

(This walkthrough will complete the secure storage room first).

Head back to the two story building and this time head to the upper floor. Enter the room and scan the Security Console in the room. Two new objectives will be added.

Find And Deactivate The Code-Locked Consoles Edit

Optional: Disable All Security Consoles (0/3) Edit

The security console that Ryder just scanned is green-colored at the moment and has been marked MEA Deactivate Map Icon. Interact with the Security Console to disable the console and the console changes red-colored. Loot the container in the room.

Ryder can then head to the upper level of the area by heading up the staircase to the right of the command center or by jumping onto the roof of the two story building and then jumping up to the upper area.

Ryder will again come under attack by Outlaw forces. Defeat them.

The structures in this area:

  • On the right is a guard tower.
  • Past the guard tower is another series of pipes and tanks.
  • On the left is a single story building with two doors:
    • There are two consoles in this building to scan. One of the consoles is another console to be deactivated for the secure room. As before, scan the terminal so it turns green-colored/becomes marked MEA Deactivate Map Icon and then interact to deactivate and turn red-colored.
    • There is a lootable container in this building.
    • There is a datapad in this building.
