You’re really adept at shooting things, aren’t you? Unfortunately, so are rattlers. Head to the Bright Sands Jungle and get me some rattler eyes, I want to know how they spot and track targets.

  • Visit The Jungle on Bright Sands
  • Hunt 12 Rattlers in the Jungle on Bright Sands
  • Deliver 6 Rattler Eyes

Guide

The quest is pretty straightforward. You need to go to the Jungle on Bright Sands and eliminate Rattlers. The jungle is located in the north area, and be aware that is heavily crowded with mobs, including Jeffs. Therefore, I’d advise you to bring a friend for this one so you go through the struggles easier. It’s one of the most painful quests in the game.

Part 9 quest image

Part 9 Dialogue

Remember those Old Bones you brought back earlier? There’s a mystery there, something artificial. I need you to head to the Extinct Creatures lab in Crescent Falls and retrieve a Warden Skull, it might have the answers I seek.

  • Enter the Extinct Creatures Lab
  • Deliver the Warden Skull

Rewards

  • 310 FP
  • x8 Osiris Scrip
  • x8500 Krypto Marks

Guide

The Extinct Creatures Lab is located on Crescent Falls, the hard map. Even though instructed to go close to the Osiris Wildlife Preserve, the lab is found between the Osiris Wildlife Preserve and the Skeleton Observation Site. The Warden Skull weighs 75 pounds, so make sure you have a place for the item in your inventory. Take a look at the image below for its exact location.

Part 10 quest image

Part 10 Dialogue

I plan on sending down a team to collect more old samples. Make sure they’re well supplied, stash some Portable Labs in Greens Prospect for them.

Objectives

  • Visit Greens Prospect on Crescent Falls
  • Stash 1 Portable Labs in the Greens Prospect Office Dead Drop

Rewards

  • 310 FP
  • x8 Osiris Scrip
  • x8500 Krypto Marks

Guide

  • Portable Lab is a tough find considering its epic rarity, and you would need all the luck in the world to get it. Portable Lab can spawn in Briefcases and in Medical Areas. I also believe it has a chance to spawn in Cabinets, so make sure you loot them. Reasonably, it should have a slightly higher spawn rate on Crescent Falls. Sometimes you’ll even find it laying on the ground.

This is another Dead Drop mission, which means you need to bring Portable Labs and deposit them. Greens Prospect is located on the hard map, Crescent Falls. The quest obviously tells you that the Dead Drop is inside an office, so be aware of that. Below you can find its exact location. The Dead Drop is in a corner in one of the rooms across from the Garage Office Key room.
