All Completion Routes

Best Completion Route

Route Rating
Deactivating Security Systems ★★★★★
Hacking and Avoiding the Security Systems ★★★★

The best way to get into the farm is by deactivating the security system in the farm in the house nearby.

Farm Routes

There are two methods to get into the farm. One is to just sneak or hack through the defense systems. Another way is to deactivate the security systems in the house.

Deactivatin Security Systems

You will need to first get into the house to deactivate the security. There are two turrets in the front. You can avoid them or deactivate/destroy them to make it easier. You can get in through shutters that require Technical 5 on the right side of the house or through a door on the left. The security controls are in a secret room in the bedroom on the second floor. The switch to open it is under the desk.

After deactivating you can run to the ladder on the left side of the barn.

Hack or Sneak Past Security

There are two turrets in front of the house and two turrets in front of the farm. These are the primary obstacles you will have to worry about. You can hack and deactivate or destroy them and then only worry about the mines. Have your scanner open to making it easier to see the mines and head to the ladder on the left side of the barn.

Obtainable Items

This list contains only rare Items and those which have a high chance of appearing.
