Sight Unseen Tips and Strategy

Adaptoids Are Your Primary Focus

Whenever Adaptoids spawn in this area, dispatch them immediately as they can make life tough on you. Especially if these are Assault Adaptoids, their attacks will take away 1/3 to 1/2 of your Willpower.

Master Dodging Techniques

This mission will feature very powerful enemies including Elite Peacekeepers and Stilleto Riotbots. Mastering when to dodge will be crucial to give yourself a good chance of going through this mission easily.

Solving The Puzzle: Secret Treasure Room

This secret room is in the 2nd area found after riding the elevator for the first time. The swtiches are mostly scattered outside the corners of the room itself.

Here are their locations:

Floor Switches

These switches are found on the floor. They are protected with metal bars so destroy those first. Then, step on the switches for a second to activate them.

Sight Unseen Boss Guide

Avengers Sight Unseen 03.png
This will be one of the few times that you get to battle Taskmaster again.

Avengers Sight Unseen 04.png
Most of Taskmaster's attacks focus on powerful, leaping hits that makes him move around the stage often. Whenever things get tough for him, he summons a set of Watchdogs - a Hellhound, a Shockmutt, and a Skydog. Deal with them first before returning your attention to Taskmaster.

Avengers Sight Unseen 06.png
The main strategy here is to stay away and use ranged attacks. It is highly advisable to use Iron Man or Black Widow here to quickly land in attacks from range.

Avengers Sight Unseen 05.png
Watch the ground for red markers to know if Taskmaster will execute his leaping radial attack. If the red marks stay, that means he set a bomb there that will activate if you get too close.

It is possible to push your opponents outside of the rooftop for an instant kill. But be warned as this can happen to your allies as well.

Sight Unseen Chest Locations

Chest Locations
This chest is almost immediately west of your drop location.
From your drop location, turn around and in the parking lot, you can find this chest.

In the first area marked with a "?", there is a switch you need to open to access these two chests.
To find this chest, head north from the first "?" marker. You'll enter a major street and turn right from there. As you pass by the third intersection, head west. At the end of this street is the chest.
From the previous chest, head back into the intersection and head north this time. Just before the edge of the map, you will be able to see this chest.

Similar to the first "?" marker, just head to the second "?" area and open the room via a switch. Get these two chests inside.
On the street just past the bridge that leads to your first objective marker, this chest will be there.
As you cross the bridge towards your first objective marker, this chest is just behind one of the small barriers.
At the back of the building where you fought the armored AIM specialized units, there will be a chest.
Just before you turn into the room with the elevator, there's a chest to the side which is easy to miss.
Avengers Sight Unseen Chest 5.png On the first floor in the AIM building, there will be a chest that can be accessed by activating four switches in the room. See the Tips and Strategy section to know their locations.

Note that dark brown / bronze colored chests may shift locations or not be present at all during a mission.
