Powering Up Power Stations Walkthrough


Any Time, Any Place

Upon reaching one of the three power plants; Poseidon Energy Plant WV-06Monongah Power PlantThunder Mountain Power Plant; you'll be prompted with the start of the event and will be tasked to repair the given Power Plant. This objective can be accomplished by meeting the sub-objectives, shown on the top right corner of the screen. You'll be asked to make repairs to three areas of the plant:


Cooling System

Head up to the top level of any of the structures station and you'll see a bunch of pipes. You may also notice the air releasing from some points of the pipes. Head over to each gaseous release spot and repair it. There is also a Control Console that can be fixed at the top, so look out for that too; in this same room, there will be a safe that can be picked to find some very saucy loot. Continue until you've done so until you fill the requirement bar.

Once this is completed, you'll be given the optional objective to complete the rest of the repairs on the pipes, which you can do or ignore, as you please.

Generator System

Use the objective marker to find the Generator System, and once you've located it, start repairing everything in sight. The pipes, the controls, the random machines, everything, until you've filled the requirement bar. Note that there some Turrets that will attack you on sight in this area, so beware. Once you have, you'll receive an additional optional quest to fully repair the whole Generator System.

From here you'll find a Terminal, guarded by a turret, that can be accessed to unlock the door to the Reactor System. It will require you to input a password, so select the word "SOMEONE" on the screen and you'll gain the ability to "Override Reactor Lockdown". Do this, then follow the marker up to the Reactor Emergency Access Terminal to once again override the lockdown, and gain access through there.

Reactor System

Once again, just start repairing everything you can until you fill the basic requirement meter, and once gain, you'll be given the option to completely repair the entire Reactor System. Once you've completed the basic/full repairs (if you followed the order that we advised) you'll complete all the repairing objectives and will be able to move onto the next text.



When you complete all the repairs, you'll be tasked with restarting the entire power plant. So follow the objective marker to the Master Mind Control Terminal, and select "Restart Power Plant". This will complete the event an grant you your rewards.

      When I repair stuff on the cooling system, the meter is not getting filled. It got filled when I repaired the other systems.
