The mission begins with “A Strange Energy Extraction Device”.

“The energy extractor device within the Eremite camp seems to serve some unspeakable purpose”.

“You must look for a control key somewhere in the surrounding rooms to shit it down”.

“However, even the smallest movement might interrupt the termination sequence, so make sure to keep the area free of obstruction till the machine shuts down”.

1st control key:

  1. Go inside the building with an open gate (there are a couple of apples inside).
  2. Head left, walk straight, head right, and proceed forward.
  3. Collect the 1st control key inside the room with a crate.
  4. Defeat the enemies that spawn.

2nd control key:

  1. Climb up the stairs and go to the entrance of the second building with the two torches.
  2. Step on top of the crates and jump to get on top of the building.
  3. Go to the left side of the building on the roof.
  4. Drop down the ladder on the roof and proceed to the room behind the ladder.
  5. Collect the 2nd control key inside the room.

Guard the extractor:

  1. Deactivate the extractor using both control keys.
  2. Defeat the enemies that spawn around the extractor.
  3. The challenge will be completed after 3 minutes.
  4. Collect the Exquisite Chest to get the rewards (Lucky Dog’s Hourglass, Hero’s Wit, and Teachings of Ingenuity).
