Go through the hole in the wall until you see the creature attacking the Detention Center. Take a turn right and you will arrive at “Cell Block B”


Cellblock B:


Here you’ll have to face 1x JCPD Drone. Defeat him and go inside the room, there you will see 1x Prisoner looting a dead body. Use the walk button to sneak from behind until you see a red circle. Press the attack button to perform a backstab attack.



After defeating him, jump into the hole in the floor. You will see 1x Prisoner, when you approach him he will throw a brick at you, try to dodge it and defeat him. There is a First Aid Station that you can use if you are hurt.



On the next part of the room, there are 2x Prisoner looting bodies. You can try to sneak behind 1 of them and perform a backstab attack or fight both of them at the same time. If you are fighting both of them, try to focus on 1 at a time and dodge the attacks from the other one.


After you defeat them, go up the stairs and you will have to fight 1x Heavy Prisoner using an Equalizer. His attacks are slow, so wait for him to attack and strike back when he is recovering.



Go up the stairs and turn left, inside the cell you’ll find Benjamin Bruke. He will ask for your help saying he has been unfairly imprisoned. The door is Jammed and you won’t be able to open it until you have your Exo Suit.



Go back and this time turn right, open the door through the control panel and enter the control room. To your right there is a door control. If you use it, you will open a door next to Benjamin Bruke to go back to where you started.


To your left there is a door and a First Aid Station. Open the door and you will arrive at the JCPD Armory.

JCPD Armory:


Once you enter the room, a boss fight will begin against Nitro. He has armor all over his body except for his head. Use the limb targeting system and aim for his head as it’s unprotected. Nitro uses an Equalizer as a weapon. His attacks are slow but have a wide and long range. When he starts attacking try to jump backwards and wait for his combo to end. When he is recovering, hit him a couple of times until he starts attacking again. Repeat this operation until you have defeated him. In case that you die, remember that you can come back through the door you opened earlier avoiding most enemies.


When you defeat him, he will drop Keycard - Officer Johnson and 100 Tech Scrap. Open the door from where he came and you will find the audiolog Ready for Action? And a Medbay.


Use the Medbay to acquire the Exo Rig. Here you will be able to check Stats. You will have 3 module points to spend any way you like. You can respec your module points so don’t be afraid of experimenting with them.


From now on you will have the Energy bar and you will be able to perform Finishing Blows and using injectables. Go outside the room and you will see 1x Infected Prisoner with a lance looting a dead body. You can sneak from behind and perform a backstab.

By doing this, the enemy will drop the weapon and you will be able to pick it up as loot acquiring the weapon Salvaged Gouger. Press the inventory button and equip your new weapon.


From here, go back to Cellblock B by opening the jammed door. Go to Benjamin Bruke cell . Once you arrive, open the jammed door. Talk to him and let him free and he will reward you with a keycard to unlock the locker in the JCPD Armory containing the Empty INF-Labs Chassis  weapon.

Go back outside the room and activate the control panel. This will open the door that Warden Garcia closed allowing you to go back to the Medbay to upgrade your Exo Rig (remember to use your consumable items so you have more scrap).


After you are done upgrading, activate the control panel at the Hallway and run through the ramp before the door closes. You will reach a small room with a door to you right. When you try to open the door, you will see the creature attacking the detention center killing two guards.

When you are near him, he will attack with his weapon making a three hit combo. Try to wait for the combo to finish to make a few hits. The combat drone activates from time to time, you will see a red laser aiming at you. When this happens the drone is immobile, so try to hide behind a wall or run in circles to avoid the attacks. If you move far away from Warden Garcia, he will jump at you or launch Molotov cocktails. When this happens try to evade them by jumping to the sides. When attacking, try to go for his right arm. If you can perform a finishing blow on it, you will be rewarded with the weapon MG Jackknife Pro and the Schematic for A.I.D. Nightfall Arm Gear.
