Not Recommended For Solo Players
This mission includes lots of combat and it is not recommended for Solo Players. Grab a friend or use the Bulletin Board to find help to complete the mission.
Assault Rifle Is Recommended
In the Shepherd map, there will be lots of soldiers as well as zombies. To defeat the soldiers, the Assault Rifle will be recommended because SMGs are not good for long distance.
Pack A Punch 3 Times For Assault Rifle And Pack A Punch 2 Times For Another
It is recommended to have 1 weapon with Pack A Punch 3 times, but if you are not confident with your skills, it might also be recommended to have another weapon with a Pack A Punch of 2 times. The Assault Rifle is recommended all around so you can PAP 3 times for this and another weapon of your liking with a PAP of 2.

Preparation Before Flying To Shepherd Map
Use 45 Minutes Fully In First Map
The 45 minutes will be reset in the Shepherd Map so use your full 45 minutes in the first starting map. Gather as much items needed and be ready for the new map.
Bring Lots Of Armors
Before heading into the Shepherd map, purchase or gather lots of armor plates. This way when you enter the map, you will be prepared and don't have to purchase anymore.
Purchase Sentry Gun
During the mission on the Shepherd map you will be escorting an ACV. You should purchase a Sentry Gun so you can attach this to the ACV. There will be lots of zombies and soldiers, and this Gun will help you defeat many of them along the way.
Purchase Or Find Turret Circuit
In part of the Shepherd mission, you will find useful Deadbolt Turrets. But these can not be activated without a Turret Circuit so purchase or find one before heading over.
Pack A Punch 3 Times
It is recommended to have at least 1 weapon that has Pack A Punch of 3 times.
Need Lots Of Essence So Bring Aether Crystal
To Pack A Punch a weapon 3 times, if your weapon is at Level 0, you will need at least 30,000. You can complete Contracts, but it is also recommended to bring an Aether Crystal.
How To Complete Shepherd
Head To Exfil With Star (Marked Shepherd)
Be aware that there are 2 Exfils with Stars on them. 1 of them is the Extraction Exfil from the Act 1 Story Mission. If you place your cursor on the map, it will say Extraction or Shepherd on it, so make sure to check before heading over or you will be sent to the Extraction map and you can not return.
Red Smoke Indicates Special Exfil
Like the Extraction Exfil, the Shepherd Exfil will be identified as Red Smoke and not the regular green smoke.
Destroy 2 SAM Sites
When you land in the Shepherd map, you will be given 2 SAM Site locations to destroy. There will be mercenaries and zombies, so be prepared to be in full combat. The sites are on top of the roof, so make your way through the building and head up.
Activate The Deadbolt Turret On Roof
While you are destroying the SAM Sites on the roofs, you will also find a Deadbolt Turret. Activating one of these will also help out on combats so activate one when you can.
Secure The Neutralizer Via Airdrop And Secure Location
After destroying the sites, you will head over to the next location with your parachute and you will be surrounded by zombies. You must defeat all the zombies for the next mission to activate.
Like the other Escort Missions, you will want to activate the ACV for it to start its journey. This is the final part of the mission so heal up and armor up before you activate the ACV. Also attach the Sentry Gun that you brought with you to this ACV.
Defeat Mega Abomination
The last boss of the Escort mission is the Mega Abomination. If you have brought a strong Pack A Punch Level 2 weapon, this might be the chance to use it on it. Once you have defeated the monster and the ACV have finished its works then a cutscene will start to complete the mission.
