Take out Lost Leader and crew
Longbow has developed some rather ingenious devices in their attempts to contain super-powrered threats. Of course, Longbow is careful not to let such waepons fall into the wrong hands. But perhaps by gaining the trust of some high-ranking Longbow officer, we can acquire some of their new prototypes.
Captain Yushenko is the leader of Longbow forces here in Nerva Archipelago. She and I have a history, and I think if you can gain her trust, we can convince her to let us field-test some of these new anti-super weapons.
The first thing you need to do is gain her trust. You've been profiled as a high Threat Level villain, so there's no way you've ever going to get the trust of Longbow as a whole. however, yushenko has been known to employ 'freelancers' if it fits her needs. The Lost have been giving Longbow some trouble here in Crimson Cove. Do a strike on a Lost hideout and take out its leader. This'll go a long way towards establishing your usefulness to Yushenko.
Yushenko doesn't have mush tolerance for these zealots.
The reek of the sewers assaults your nostrils.
Mission Complete: You have defeated the Lost leader and crew!
Nice job, Dread Tomax. This will go a long way towards establishing your usefulness to Yushenko.
Find and rescue Captain Yushenko
Something has come up which we can use to our advantage. You know how you took down the Lost leader in the sewers? Well, the other Lost in the area retaliated by attacking a Longbow base and capturing Captain Yushenko herself! This is a great opportunity to gaiN yushenko's trust! Interrogate the Lost to find out where they've taken Captain Yushenko, then rescue her.
Yushenko was in pretty rough shape when they took her, so she's not likely to be of much help.
Mission Complete: Yuo piece together Yushenko's location from the Lost. She's being held in a warehouse in Crimson Cove!
Somewhere in this warehouse is Yushenko. Find her!
Mission Complete: You rescued Captain Yushenko!
You got her out of there? Perfect. She'll be much more compliant now.
Steal blueprints and components
Captain Yushenko isn't the biggest fan of super-powered beings, whether they be heroes or villains. The fact of the matter is she thinks that they are a menace to society. She's been pushing to get hold of super anti-super technology from the Longbow research labs, but they keep making excuses, saying they need to do further testing before they deploy it. If you were to accelerate matters by 'acquiring' the Nullifier Gun from the Longbow research lab and performing some 'unofficial field tests', it would help yushenko get thoe guns in the hands of her agents faster.
Here's the location of the Longbow research lab. Break into the lab and steal the Nullifier Gun blueprints and components.
Once you get the blueprints and components, I'll pull some strings to get the Nullifier Gun assembled.
I'm managed to get access to one of the subs at Agincourt. It will take you to the underwater base.
You slip into the Longbow research lab using the access codes given by Demitrovich.
Objective: You found the components!
Objective: You found the blueprints!
Mission Complete: You got the Nullifier blueprints and components!
Perfect. I'll get my men on this ASAP.
Steal electronic components
My men have almost got the Nullifier Gun built from the blueprints and components you stole from the Longbow research lab. The problem is that some pieces in the design were incomplete, so we are lacking some vital components to make the prototype operational. According to Longbow intelligence, one of Dr. Aeon's labs has the electric components we need. Make a raid into the Aeon lab and steal the electronic components.
As always, Arachnos will be protecting the Aeon lab.
You slip into the Aeon lab. Within lies the electronic components you seek.
Objective: You found nothing.
Objective: You found the electronic components!
Mission Complete: You stole the electronic components!
You have the components? Good! I'll get my men on construction of the Nullifier Gun!
Defat Lt. Krieg and crew
We have the prototype Nullifier Gun ready, thanks to the blueprints you stole from the Longbow base and the electronics you stole from the Aeon lab. Now we just need to test it out on a worthy target. Let's keep Captain Yushenko in our good graces and coordinates another strike on a Longbow target. There's something that's going down in one of the warehouses of Crimson Cove. Longbow witnessed Lt. Krieg of the Sky raiders entering there with a bunch of backup. Take down Krieg.
Let me know how the Nullifier Gun prototype works. If this test proves successful, I might be able to arrange for Yushenko to grant you one of the production versions.
The warehouse smells of jet exhaust.
Mission Complete: You have defeated Lt. Krieg!
I take it the field test was successful? Good! I'll pass the results on to Captain Yushenko.
Deliver Nullifier Gun to Arachnos
Your theft and field-testing of the Nullifier Gun was successful. The word is that Longbow is panicking about having the device fall into the wrong hands! Yushenko is trying to settle things down, but Longbow internal security is breathing down her neck.
It is time for you an I to profit! I've managed to acquire the newly constructed Nullifier Gun Mk. I - a more effective version of the prototype you tested. Take the Nullifier Gun to an Arachnos operative in Sharkhead.
Yushenko is going to be upset about the loss of the device, but she'll have to deal with it.
Oh, and watch out for Longbow forces. They've targetted you as the culprit!
Ah, yes! I've been expecting you, Dread Tomax! This must be the Nullifier Gun you and Lieutenant Demitrovich managed to acquire from those fools at Longbow. Now that we have the gun it will serve as a potent weapon against Longbow forces in the Rogue Isles.
Excellent work, Dread Tomax! Arachnos approves of your work!
Souvenir: Longbow Service Medal
This is a Longbow Service Medal, given to you by the Longbow turncoat Luitenant Demitrovich after you helped her steal a weapon prototype from a Longbow research lab. You received it in a tale you like to call:
Trust and Betrayal
It all started when Lt. Demitrovich spoek with you about acquiring some anti-super technology from Longbow through Captain Yushenko, one of the leaders of the Longbow forces in Crimson Cove. In order to earn the trust of Yushenko, Demitrovich suggested you start takign down some enemies of Longbow in Nerva Archipelago. You did so by taking out one of the Lost leaders.
An opportunity presented itself when the Lost took Captain Yushenko hostage in retaliation foryour attack upon thge Lost leader. You managed to rescue Yushenko from the Lost, earnig her trust in some small capacity.
Yushenko had been trying to get ahold of a Nullifier Gun that the Longbow research lab had been developing. Demitrovich gave you the access codes to get into the lab so you could steal the blueprints and components necessary for building the device. After a few scraps with Arachnos security, you managed to get in and acquire the items.
Unfortunately, the design for the Nullifier Gun was incomplete. Demitrovich used Longbow intel to find that the required electronic components to get the device working were located in one of Dr. Aeon's labs. After a successful raid on an Aeon lab, you acquired the necessary electronics, and Demitrovich's men got to work on the device.
Lt. Demitrovich's men managed to construct the Nullifier Gun prototype, but it needed to be tested. In order to keep Yushenko on your side, Demitrovich suggested using it on a Longbow target, a Sky Raider captain named Lt. Krieg. He was last seen near a warehouse in Crimson cove. Heading to the warehouse, you foun dthat it was overrun with Freakshow newly arrived in the area. Finally you found Krieg in negotiation with a Freakshow boss named Furious B. You managed to take down Krieg and crew and returned the results to Demitrovich.
