This DLC is part of the Firewalker Pack which is available free for anyone with access to the Cerberus Network. It was released on March 23rd 2010. This particular pack includes the Hammerhead vehicle and five missions to try it out on.

DLC: Firewalker: Prothean Site

Having successfully extracted the research from the scientists' base on the volcanic planet in the Firewalker: Recover Research Data mission, you can scan the planet Kopis in the Hoplos system of the Hades Nexus. Scan the planet and land once you have probed the anomaly. We need to gain entry to the base on this planet, protected by kinetic barriers, to discover what Prothean relics were found here.

The dome is protected by Geth Rocket Drones, but they should not provide too much resistance to the Hammerhead if you move quickly. They jump out of the ground, so cannot be killed from distance. You can defeat them quite easily, however, even by ramming them with the Hammerhead. First, get to the dome and follow the blue wires leading from it. These will show you where the generators are that you need to destroy to deactivate the dome.


Follow these cables to find each of the four generators

Once you get to the generators, one rocket should take each one out. Some at the back of the area are harder to reach, and you may need to jump as high as you can and then boost into the side of the rock-face to slide up the final few metres. Find the lowest point and try this tactic. One of the generators is also in a cave inside the rock, so be on the lookout for it, but simply follow any glowing wires to locate the remaining active generators.

You should also see a few resource sites around the area, so stop on those and mine the goodies inside if the Rocket Drones give you enough respite. Once the dome is down, enter the crater and disembark.

Being protected by the kinetic barrier, there is no one inside the facility. In the first area you can read a Datapad and collect some Refined Element Zero. Soon also you will be able to steal some credits from a Dead Body and in the next room examine a Research Terminal for a Biotic Damage Upgrade. Play the Journal in this room to see just how desperate the scientists had got to protect their find. Hack the Computer Console to reveal the spectacular Geth artefact. Be sure to read the final Datapad just by the relic, showing Dr. O'Loy's motives for co-operating with the Geth. You can then approach the relic to end the mission.


Dr. Loy met an untimely end to protect his family and a human colony.

Thanks for the guide. Many walkthroughs don't contain Firewalker help.
