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.

How To Complete Shepherd

Head To Exfil With Star (Marked Shepherd)

Exfil Map

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

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

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

Deadbolt turret

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.

Escort ACV

Escort ACV

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

Mega Abdomination

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.
