Quick walkthrough

Detailed walkthrough

After defeating the Hornwright security robot that spawns when the event is triggered, the player will be directed to a building. Once they arrive at the door it will open up and two Mr. Gutsy robots will spawn. After defeating them they will be holding the security keycard Alpha and Beta respectively, a fifteen minute counter will also begin until the event is failed. After looting the keycards, the player will have to activate two keypads located on the western and eastern exterior wall of the building within a short timeframe. Then return inside to activate a button, completing the quest.
