This quest starts immediately after the next one, without you being able to free roam yet. There will be a number of scenes, and you will eventually be rescued by a man named Hakon, who explains a bit about what’s going on. Before continuing outside there is a collectible Memento you can grab from the room past where the two girls are standing (it can still be grabbed later at any time in free-roam).
Memento: Infected Playing Card – Ace of Spades – Demolisher
Head outside and you will have some more conversation with Hakon, choose whatever options you like here.
After that, you’ll need to follow Hakon along the rooftops. There are some items you can stop and pick up along the way if you want, but nothing major yet.
Once you reach the large broken sign you can try to climb up, but you won’t be able to because of your lowered stamina after entering Villedor. Try climbing up once, then Hakon will drop a ladder down to you to climb up.
Search the roof for loot
Climb up and speak to Hakon, then you will be told about Rooftop Groves, which are areas that you can find resources such as Honey and Chamomile.
Search the area and grab the loot, the main one you need to grab to progress though is the brown crate on the left, where you’ll find a crystal inside.
Continue following Hakon across the rooftops, and you will eventually reach a point where Hakon tells you about the Peacekeepers, one of the factions in the area. The dialogue options here don’t matter, but you can get some more information out of him before continuing if you want.
Continue following Hakon up the next rooftop to continue.
Search the airdrop
On the rooftop you will be prompted to interact with the airdrop to look inside, then you use the GRE Access Key to open an extra compartment. Your response after to Hakon can be whatever you want.
Get to the Safe Zone
Night has now fallen, and you are trying to get to a safe zone to avoid the infected. Follow Hakon along the rooftops to the marked UV Light area.
You won’t be let into the safe zone, so you need to keep running. The game introduces the Chase mechanic now, where if you alert infected at night then they can begin chasing you, and you need to get to a safe zone or avoid them. Keep following Hakon to the next marked safe area.
Interact with Hakon when he reaches the door.
Kill the Virals
You’ll need to deal with the chasing Virals for a bit while Hakon tries to get inside. Virals are faster than normal infected, so watch out for if multiple get on the roof at once.
After killing a certain number of Viarls the chase will end, signifying that no more will appear. Go back over and interact with Hakon at the door.
When speaking with Cillian you can go through whichever dialogue you want, you end up with the same dialogue occurring anyway.
Go to sleep!
Once Hakon leaves you can interact with Cillian if you want some extra dialogue, then there is also a collectible Tape you can grab from the console to the right of the stash.
Tape: Journal of a Nightrunner #1
Once you are finished, interact with the bed to sleep until morning and end the current quest.
