Walkthrough Guide

Follow And Speak To Hadrian


To start the mission, first follow and speak to Hadrian inside the Red Devils Headquarters, Cydonia, Sol System. She will give you information on the Terrormorph plan and the details on how to get their samples.

Head To Londinion


After you speak to Hadrian, you will be addressed to go to Londinion which is in Toliman II, Toliman System. This is also where Forward Base 441 is located and most of the mission is based here.

Speak To Commander Hatoum


Speak to Commander Hatoum, and they will introduce you to Kaiser. It is a robot captain that you will be following in the mission. You will also speak with the team about the plan and then you can start your journey by telling Hadrian you are ready.

Before Continuing, Head To Armillary To Get Gear

Head to the Armillary to get the gear that you are looking for.

Getting gear

You can also get gear on the 1st floor of the building from the walls (ammo and guns) and on the ground (armors and gear). This way you can save money by not purchasing so it is recommended if you find the things you want.

You will also be in lots of battle with creatures so it is recommended to gather lots of ammo.

Locate And Collect The Aceles Samples

Storage containers

Once you have entered the City, you will start looking for Aceles samples. These samples are inside Storage Containers.

You Will Be Attacked By Terrormorphs


While looking for the samples there will be Terrormorphs nearby that is looking to attack you. It will be easier to explore when these creatures are dead so defeat them first before going on your search.

Terrormorph - How To Defeat & Locations

Proceed To The Tunnels And Observe The Lazarus Plant

Lazarus Plant

After finding all the samples, head through the Steam Tunnels and observe the Lazarus Plant with Hadrian. A cutscene will occur and you will learn the Heatleeches are the Terrormorphs and you will be in combat with the creatures again.

Defeat The Terrormorph And Collect Samples

When you leave the room, the Terrormorph will attack you. Defeat it so you can get the tissue sample from it. You will then follow Kaiser to restore power to the spaceport to access the hatch.

Kaiser Freezes And Can't Open Door Glitch

kaiser bug

There has been reports from users where Kaiser freezes in front of the door only which it can only open.

Way To Fix Bug

Option 1Punch the NPC back at the base, lead the robot dogs, kill both of the robot dogs, holster your weapon (so the marines don't shoot you), punch the major and triggers the dialogue

XBox Fix (Reddit Forum)

Reboot System And Listen To The Playback

system reboot

Press the big mechanic on the left wall, right after you enter the room. It will playback the entire scenario of what happened in the plant. You will want to collect this recording from the computer next to the button so you can keep it as evidence to bring back.

Defeat The Final Terrormorph


The final Terrormorph will come out from the ground by the snowy mountain. It is the most powerful out of the others that you have defeated.

Heal Up Before Proceeding

Since this Terrormorph is stronger than the other Terrormorphs, you will want to heal up to the max or use aids to get boosts. You will also gather ammo so you have enough to defeat the creature.

Return To Base And Discuss Findings

Major Hadrian

Return back to Forward Base 441 once you have secured all the samples from the Terrormorphs. You will discuss the findings with Perceival and Major Hadrian and Hadrian will reward you when you complete the quest.
