Informed Means Armed Quest Dialogue

Oh, whassup! Let me tell you something. I settled in around here nicely, but something just doesn’t feel right anyway. I mean, there’s no confidence about what tomorrow may bring! Forget it, I just caught some sads … Anyhow, I’d like to stay well-informed about what is happening in the neighborhood to feel more at peace. I’ll give you a hint of some shady spot where I’d like to install some smart cams. I’m not good at this stuff, so my boys will explain the details. The cameras can be found at the Mechanic’s, he used to sell them. Obviously, not a word to him about our business.

Reward Dialogue

All this tech is clearly not for me, picture is hazed and the signal is shit, but I’ve already spotted some “fat rats”. Thanks, huge help!


The quest asks us to go to Woods, Customs, and Interchange. The order of the maps is not important, and you can go wherever you decide to go first. To complete this quest however, you need to have a WI-FI Camera with you.

Required Items

  • 3x WI-FI Camera
    • You will need 1 camera for each map

Woods, Customs, and Interchange Locations


The location to place the camera is down south, on the shore next to the lake. We’ve marked the place in the images below.


The camera should be placed on the wooden planks in Brutal, just across the KIBA store.


The camera should be placed in the bushes between the containers and the shack.

Your life isn’t important during this quest, and if you die your progress will remain vital. Just make sure you stick the action button for 20 seconds and place the camera successfully.

I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. My mission is to lurk and discover secrets, create guides and provide you with some important news. I mostly play FPS and love experimenting in good MMORPGs.
