1 ~ 3 Obtain the Ion Coil - Hint & Tips
Stay Low to Stay Clear of Lightning
Lightning will pose as a threat to you during the mission. Stay low on the ground as lightning will target objects higher up in the air. Using your parachute in this mission is very risky because of this.
Sparks on Your Back Indicates Lightning Strike
Sparks will appear on your back if lightning is about to strike you. The bigger the sparks, the less time you have before it strikes. Escape from it by grappling away and moving fast between the generators.
