2. The Rope Can Be Hard To Spot
The supply drop is located a floor above the investigation area. You'll need to take a rope up to reach it. It can be hard to spot at night, but it's near where the supply drop is.
4. Stay Away From C4 Detonation
Once planted, make sure to keep distance from the C4 as you can be caught in the explosion.

Since all enemies will be coming in through a narrow door, place your Flame Turret right in front of the door to burn incoming enemies.Check Out All Skills Here!
