The Tenacity of Tyler Freeborn
Infiltration Mission – Blue Mountain
A TSW Guide to content update 1.5
This is the third in a series of quests about Tyler Freeborn.
The previous quest is The Research of Tyler Freeborn, and the final quest is The Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn)
The Tenacity of Tyler Freeborn is the third quest in the Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn line. This quest series was added in content update 1.5 with the same name. Our Secret World Guide continues with this examination of the infiltration quest. Infiltration quests generally require stealth and reward players for bypassing obstacles without combat.
The Tenacity of Tyler Freeborn, Step 1 – Go to the Orochi Encampment
The Orochi camp is sealed and requires a keypad entry to get in. The entry can be found in the nearby van 0943786.
Beware the drones, they will stun you and boot you out of the gates. The quest updates to “Find traces of Tyler Freeborn.”
The camera you are looking for is in one of the two Orochi vans to the right from the gate. You find it at 673, 823. You get an interesting cut-scene with Tyler discussing the Pied Piper and the Draug.
The Tenacity of Tyler Freeborn, Step 2 – Examine the nearby research laptop
Conveniently, this is right beside you. Project Filth, Testing updates the quest to:
- Get a normal human blood sample
- Get a filthy blood sample
- Get a second filthy blood sample
You will find the three samples in the various tents. Be warned, though, there are Orochi scientists in them. You need to trigger gas leaks to get the scientists to leave their tent.
You can pickup canisters of gas around the camp and then use them in the air ventilation systems on the tents. This causes the scientists/guards to leave a tent for about 30 seconds. This is the exact same process as completed in the Orochi Group infiltration quest. Be aware, that if others are triggering this quest, you can easily get caught in their returning guards. Just keep your eyes peeled.
Once you complete this, the quest updates to:
- Confirm the results using the first blood sample
- Confirm the results using the second blood sample
- Confirm the results using the third sample
Interestingly, H. Bannerman (the Sheriff) was not physically exposed, but she appears infected
The quest then updates to “Read the experiment results and conclusions.”
Go back to the van with the computer. View project filth and conclusions. The quest advises Orochi agents to use CDC-class resiprators at all time.
The Tenacity of Tyler Freeborn, Step 3 – Head to the CDC Camp
Upon entering the CDC camp you get the message “Find a respirator.” They are in a box near a tent, the quest updates to “Read the crumpled up note” in the same box. The note references a “Bathymetric Map” and has the word “Whale Watch” scribbled beside it.
The Tenacity of Tyler Freeborn, Step 4 – Head to the Whale Watch
For reference, a quick GIS on the map tells us that it is the “submerged equivalent of an above-water topographic map. Upon reaching the whale watcyh, the quest updates to “Find a bathymetric map.” The map is on the boat, located at 45, 649.
The map shows you that the shallowest part of the ocean is NE of skull island. Bear in mind, the map and your game-map show slightly different spots. The map on the boat circles a spot a bit north of your in-game map. The quest updates to “Go to the shallowest part of the ocean.” At 205, 924, the quest updates to “Examine the camera.”
This concludes the Tenacity of Tyler Freeborn. Our Secret World guide continues with the epic conclusion in the Vanishing of Tyler Freeborn.
