Lab Rat

Gray Zone Warfare “Covert Research” Quest Guide

The quest Covert Research is given by Lab Rat, and this quest is similar to Reclamation, which asks you to pick up a favorite vendor between Handshake’s Reclamation and Lab Rat. The quest asks you to get the intel, but who would you return it to?

Covert Research Quest Details

Hey, so I don’t really know how to say this, so I’ll just be blunt. I need your help with something, and I beg you to keep it a secret. I hope I can trust you.

You see, the container you’ve been tasked to retrieve holds something of immense significance, something that could reshape our understanding of this entire situation. I know that Mr. Pell wants the container for immediate assessment, but I implore you to bring it to me first. I can’t reveal the specifics just yet, but trust me when I say that it’s vital for me to conduct thorough research on its contents before any further actions are taken.

He may not see the value in this approach, but I assure you that it is in the best interest of our mission. Don’t worry, once my research is complete and I have gained a comprehensive understanding of the container’s contents, I will present my findings to Mr. Pell. It will be up to him to decide how to proceed from there.

I know it’s a lot to ask, but will you please help me?

The location where this item is stashed is in the big mafia building, as I like to call it. The item you need to pick up is on the second floor. You can find it on the map below:

I am ANGE1K. 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. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
