Night Tracer Equipment
GRE access key
The GRE access key is a central object of the plot that we will not reveal here. Know that you find it very quickly during the first mission. On the other hand, it has a very important utility since it allows you to open the various locks of the GRE. You can come in in some GRE areas such as GRE centers to find many objects and Inhibitors but above all you can open the GRE boxes which also contain the famous inhibitors. You will also have the opportunity to access at the parachute boxes in order to get military technology to upgrade Night Tracer equipment that can be upgraded.
Finally, the GRE Key tells you when you are within 50 yards of an Inhibitor. You just have to test the waters to get closer to your treasure.
The Twins are given to you by Halkon during one of the first missions, plague marker. They serve you to locate places of interest from a distance, give information on them and mark them on your map. To use it, we suggest you get high such as mills or tall buildings.
Once you use them, a white rectangle will appear when you look near an important location. The closer you get, the tighter this rectangle becomes. Eventually, you will easily recognize the places to target. Consider looking at street level for military convoys, derelict shops, etc. Similarly, you can easily observe airdrops or Nocturnal Tracer hideouts by aiming for rooftops.
Paragliding is offered to you during the mission A new home. It will be very useful to you and you are likely to use it constantly once you have taken it in hand a little. It allows you to cross large areas of the city or get down safely from a building.. The wind is important, pay attention to the ventilation grilles, the air they send gives you back all your endurance and makes you gain altitude. You can stay in the air for a very long time if you switch from one air vent to another. The same is true for drafts close to tall buildings.
The Paraglider is upgradeable with Military Technology with a craftsman and it is an excellent investment because it will allow you to gain altitude without outside help and to go faster.
You obtain the UV Torch during the mission welcome aboard. It allows you to slow or even stun the infected you target with it. The unenhanced version is not very powerful but you will be able to increase the size of the UV light beam, the battery and above all add a powerful flash that can stop the infected in their tracks, even raptors.
You will find the grappling hook during the mission Live. You can throw it and cling to various objects, ceilings or walls so you can swing to reach distant platforms. Although the basic version is very useful, improving it brings very good bonuses.
The GRE detector is unlocked during the mission Live. This item unlocks access to the Radio Towers. It consists of a puzzle-game of parkour technique. You need to reach the transmitter at the very top of the radio tower and activate the GRE Detector. Doing so will reveal all Inhibitor locations within range of the Radio Tower. Zoom in as much as possible on your map to make them appear. All you have to do is hunt them down.
Parachuting and Military Technology
As mentioned previously, in order to improve your Night Tracer equipment, you will need Military Technology. The latter is picked up in the crates of airdrops strewing the roofs of Villedor. Take out your binoculars and scan the tops of the buildings to spot them. In order to help you, we offer you a map with the different airdrop locations containing Military Technology. Once you have some on you, go see a Master craftsman to improve your stuff.
Just like some other activities, hover your cursor over the different airdrops to find out if you need a prerequisite to access it such as an endurance level, the paraglider or the grappling hook.
