Shanghaied: They’re on a Boat!

For this mission, you have to meet up with the DedSec member by the dock. Hop on the speedboat provisioned to you then sail all the way to the barge marked in the map. The entire barge is obviously restricted so you have to find you can either deploy your drones from the speedboat or find a good hiding spot on board the barge. Your first objective is to access the marked terminal inside a locked room in the second level of the barge. This requires a physical hack so you need to interact with the terminal directly or using the jumper.

The room has two electronic doors that require an access key to open. Open NetHack view to find the gang member that has the access key. After getting the access key, it’s up to you whether you want to send your jumper or move in yourself. Take note that the whole barge has a lot of cover but also lots of pathways that enemies can use to spot or flank you so maintaining stealth is still the best option. You can always minimize your presence by letting your quadcopter do the job like dropping proximity explosives or ESDs in key pathways or on top of enemies. When you have lessened the number of enemies, you can access the terminal to learn the server’s location.

The server is located in the lower deck. Head to the barge’s control room and you’ll find the stairs leading there or you can use the cargo lift in the middle to reach the storage room below. The server is inside a crate carried by forklift so take control of that forklift and drive it to the cargo lift. Before activating the lift, make sure to join the ride since you’ll still have to do something else for the mission.

Once the server has been brought to the top deck, an alarm will trigger automatically and will call in gang reinforcements. Find a good spot to take cover and throw in proximity traps along the possible pathways of your position. You don’t need to go full stealth at this portion of the mission but taking out enemies without them seeing you will always remain advantageous. Basically, you have to hold the enemies off until extraction arrives. If you’re able to get rid of them completely before the extraction arrives, then the better. Once Josh’s custom drone arrives, get back to the server to complete the mission.
