Starting Location: Veronika
Find Veronika Ryan
After the events of Nightrunners or Empire, you obtain the location of the GRE scientist Veronika Ryan, and need to head back to Old Villedor and check the Bazaar to find her.
Search the Bazaar
The Bazaar will be in a different state depending on your actions earlier in the game. Head inside the building and to the back where the medical area was, and you will either meet Sophie or Barney.
Go to the hideout at Courtesan Row Street
After meeting with either of them, you’ll be given the location of a hideout on the very north edge of the city to go investigate.
Climb in the window on the second floor to enter the hideout.
Get rid of the Renegades
Inside there will be a few Renegades on the top and bottom floor, deal with them so you can search around.
Search the place
After dealing with the Renegades on the lower floor, you can grab a memento off the counter.
Memento – The Doctor Gambit
You can pick the lock on the white door to find Vincenzo.
Meet Veronika near the dam
Vincenzo helps you learn Veronika’s location, and you need to meet her outside of the city by the dam.
Head back upstairs and interact with the board blocking the window to leave.
If you are on the Peacekeeper ending path (gave control of VNC Tower antenna to Jack Matt) he will contact you when leaving and ask you to go help Lawan attack the Colonel.
It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you agree to help and do this side quest now. It’s not required to progress the story, but the areas you go to have some collectibles in them.
Agreeing to help starts the Side Quest “No Mercy”, which is basically the events that occur during the Nightrunners main quest, but aren’t required for story progression like if you were on the Survivors ending path.
At the dam you need to go across to the side opposite the city, then you can go down directly beside the water to find a building.
Head inside where you meet Veronika.
Whatever conversation choices you make with her during this quest don’t matter, so respond however you like.
Talk to Veronika
Head out of the building and then go over near the Observatory walls to speak with Veronika again.
Get through the chemicals to the Observatory entrance
She will give you an injection to allow you to get through the THV area, and you need to run towards the Observatory buildings.
Climb up the wall between the two buildings, then you can jump to the platforms leading around the left dome to get inside.
Enter the Observatory
Now you can jump across to the other building using the rope in between, then follow the platforms around the outside to enter the second dome.
Interact with the hatch on the rooftop to enter the building.
Go to the B Block
Continue all the way downstairs and interact with the door at the bottom to check inside.
Veronika suggests using the UV Flashlight and just running through the enemies, or you can fight them if you want. At the bottom of the area there will be a gap in a broken door you squeeze through to get past the area with the infected.
Restore power to the building
Continue into the next room, where you need to go through a door on the lower level to progress. The lower area also has infected in it, which you can deal with or ignore.
Climb the ladder immediately in front of you when you go through the door, then follow the walkway around to where you can find and interact with a generator to restore the power.
Meet Veronika near the elevator
This will electrify the water on the ground floor, killing all the enemies. The game suggests you go near the elevator to meet Veronika, but you shouldn’t go anywhere yet.
Find a way to restore power
You will need to restore the power now after it goes out. To do this you need to go across this room to the opposite walkway.
Enter the door on the right where you can find panel 1 with a cable to grab.
Take the cable back across the room and plug it into the panel beside the generator.
Join Veronika by the elevator
Now you can go through the doors and meet Veronika in the elevator. While riding the elevator respond however you want (or don’t want). Certain responses will get more dialogue out of her or just end the elevator ride.
Restore the power in Block C
You now need to restore power to this area. You might notice another panel with a cable in this room, but don’t do anything with it yet because you need to open the doors first. To start, climb up on the stack of containers in the corner and climb up into the ceiling panels.
You can then climb through a vent into the next room, then drop down and hit the green button to open the door.
In the hallway, you can hit the green button to open the door leading back to where Veronika is, but still don’t grab the cable yet. Follow the hallway in the other direction and go through the partially open door on the right side, where you will enter another room where you can climb up into the ceiling.
Follow through the next vent and you will drop down into the room with the receiving panel a. Open the door, then grab the cable from the first room and plug it into the panel.
Return to Veronika
Go back and speak with Veronika who is waiting in the hallway.
Go to the Central Database
Follow her down the hallway to the door at the end and interact with her while she is looking at the door panel.
Unlock door locks from the Officers’ Room
Head back down the hallway and go through the new partially open door into the Officers’ Room.
Interact with the marked red panel.
Get back to Veronika
You now need to get back out using a different route. Go through into the door to the right of the panel, then you can climb up into the ceiling once more in the corner where the yellow pipes are.
Follow the next air vent around and you will drop into a room with a few infected. Deal with them, then interact with the air vent on the wall to pull it off and get into the next room over.
After the scene with Veronika, you can now go to the end of the hallway to enter the Central Database room.
Find a blocker
A decontamination sequence starts in this room when you enter, and you need to find another blocker to stop yourself from being killed by it. So do this, you need to get up into the balcony on the right side of the room to reach the database room on the other side of the wall.
This is most easily done by climbing up into the balcony directly above the entrance, then swinging across using the grapple. Once you reach the next room interact with the marked First Aid kit to obtain a blocker.
After you wake up you will be speaking with Veronika as she checks through the database. You can go through these options in whatever order you want, you have to go through them all to continue.
Get rid of the Renegades
A number of Renegades will now be in the other room, and you need to go out and deal with them. This first group aren’t away of you, so you can try to take them out in stealth if you like.
Check on Veronika
Once the Renegades are all dealt with head back into the Database room to check on Veronika again.
Defend Veronika from Waltz’s Renegades
Some more Renegades appear in the other room, and you need to deal with them again. Climb up to the balcony, then you will drop back into the other room with the Renegades aware of you already, so no stealth this time.
Return to Veronika
The lower door is locked this time, so you need to go back into the balcony to get back to the prior room.
Veronika is nowhere to be found, so now you need to find her. Using Survivor Sense you can spot footprints leading out the side door of the room (you need to do this before you are allowed to open the door). Follow them back out and through the hallway to where you entered this area.
Interact with the elevator in the first room, then climb the shaft up to the top.
Run away from Waltz
After reaching the top and interacting with the door you will now automatically be running away from Waltz. Follow the objective back through the hallways and stairwells you came through on the way in.
Once you reach outside, you will now have your first actual fight with Waltz.
Waltz is the only “human” enemy you can’t just cheese by lighting on fire, as he ignores the burning effect and still just attacks you through it. He also has ranged and area attacks that he can do, so watch out for when he winds up instead of chasing you. Ranged attacks will be when he sweeps the ground towards you with his arms, and area attacks will be when he jumps into the air and then a large blast occurs out from where he landed.
After you lower his health halfway Aiden will pass out, then some scenes will occur and this story quest ends.
This finishes Veronika story quest in Dying Light 2 Stay Human.
