View Full Version : MAKO lab, quick question
12-06-2003, 10:50 PM
I'm towards the end of the mako lab level (the first covert mission). I've released the grey and I've talked to the head scientist on the top floor. I was told that he would grant me the schematics or a rail gun or something, but he just gets scared and runs away.
Can somebody tell me how to finish the mission? I don't want to shoot him for the order.
is the guy i need to talk to or kill the guy with the scar on his face that holocomed in at the start of the game, becuase i killed him,
where do i go to complete the mission??

Non-hostile NPCs, when they hear gunfire, or accidently get nailed by crossfire, go into a lengthy "Oh no, I need new pants" mode that lasts for two minutes. In this time, they will say nothing except how things "aren't safe" etc. Just give the little man a couple minutes to calm down and you should be able to get him to go into his office and release the cover on the MagRail container's release switch.
The man I speak of is a bald fellow in a labcoat. His laboratory is past the "Advanced Weapons" door next to the security room on the facility's ground level, accessible via the main hallway system.
The scarred man from the opening movie is Stan, part of the ApostleCorp "family". He isn't the fellow you speak to about the MagRail. You can kill him if you wish, I suppose, but there isn't any reward for doing so.
Oh, and did you expect the Gray to speak (much less speak via telepathy)? I knew they had to be sentient in DX1. Guess they just weren't real chatty 20 years ago.

The guy with the scar has dark hair and a beard? That's not the scientist. The scientist is a bald guy. Sometimes he hangs out near the guard station, but if he's not there, you'll need to climb a ladder to reach him.

If you put you firearm away, they'll usually allow you to initiate dialogue with them, give it a try.

I've let the guy be for an hour after taking out the guard & bot in the lab with him; however, he will not talk with me.
I'm running the X-Box version.
Any ideas (other than start up an older save file)?

If you have taken out the guard and the bot in the lab with him (and the mag rail under lockdown) you have defaulted to the Order quest (kill the scientist) and cannot do the WTO one. So go ahead and cap his a$$.
When you get to Cairo you will still be able to choose from WTO and Order quests; the only consequence is that you get the mag rail a little later.

Put a box inbetween the door and then go in and kill him after grabbing the rail gun :D
Also make sure there's no corpse on the floor visible to him.
