N7: Lost Operative Walkthrough
Once you land, head off to your right, behind a bunch of crates, you will find a crate of Platinum. Now head up the ramp and turn right towards the door. Eclipse Troopers and an Eclipse Vanguard will welcome you, get into cover and deal with them.
Once they are down, a new wave composed of the same type of Enemies will come from the opposite door. The Vanguard has a nasty habit of trying to flank you, so keep that in mind. When the Enemies are gone, head into the room they came out from to grab some Medi-Gel and bypass a safe to obtain Credits.
Now head back into the main room, you will find a table to your right with a terminal on it. You learn that Rawlings was killed. When you are ready, get your squad into cover facing the doors you haven't used yet, and bypass the holding cell access panel. Once you do, get into cover, because more Enemies will approach. Namely, a Salarians Eclipse operative called Morl, an Eclipse Vanguard and more Eclipse Troopers.
Once the threats are down, go through the door from which Morl entered the room, and down the ramps. You will find a Platinum rate in the corner. Return to the room, and enter the other not yet accessed door on your right, to go through a tunnel that will eventually lead to an interrogation room. Bypass the door to enter, and access the computer to finish the Assignment.
When you access the computer EDI informs you about the nature of the data and the potential damage it may cause to Cerberus if it was available to the public. After learning this, you have three options:
- Upload the data to Cerberus Commnad
- Upload the data to Alliance Command
- Keep the data for yourself on the Normandy.
Once you make your decision, the Assignment is over.
