Through the Wringer Starting Location
Reach the fertilizer plant and the trapped hostages
After the previous mission it might take a few minutes until you get a call from the Twins. They will let you know about hostages being held at the fertilizer plant. Head there and find the hostages locked in a room with an electronic lock.
Turn on the breaker to let the hostages escape
The “breaker” that you need to turn on is the little keypad on the door where the trapped hostages are. In order to turn that on you need to get a key from a corpse on the rooftop. Just climb up and look for the corpse, see the image below with the keycard circled in red. Pick it up!
Liberate the hostages
Quickly run back to the trapped hostages and use the keycard on the keypad. Then the light turns from red to green and the door opens. First group of hostages is free. But of course that would’ve been too easy, there are 4 more hostages to rescue around the area.
Find and defuse the 4 bombs
The first hostage is on the ground floor of the main building. To the left of the locked door hangs the keycard on a little message board. So the keycard is really close to the door. Just pick it up to open the door and interact with the hostage inside to take their explosive belt off.
The second hostage is outside in a little shack. However, there will be a damaged tractor blocking the door. You need the Repair Torch Perk, then select the Repair Torch from weapon wheel and repair the tractor. Now you can get in the tractor and drive it away.
Behind the tractor you can now reach the key (circled in red below) and open the door. Interact with the hostage inside.
The third hostage is close to where we had to help the very first group of trapped hostages. Check the yellow container (circled in red below). Inside you can find the third hostage and interact to take off the explosive belt.
The 4th and last hostage is in a side building just standing near the door.
Defuse the bombs
Go back inside the main building’s ground floor. A new door is now open that leads downstairs. In the cellar you find more trapped hostages. This time you are tasked to solve a puzzle with 4 electric switches. These may be randomized, the combination that worked for me was from left to right: 4123 (4 being the right switch and 1 being the left switch). When you flipped the first correct switch you see a green light. Then you need to hit the next switch that gives you a green light. If it’s a red light you got to start over but the combination remains the same. Do this until you figured the combination that applies to you.
Shoot the chain locks
Head back outside and you will see 3 new markers on hostages that are tied up to explosives on platforms high up in the air. From the roof of the main building you can shoot the padlocks off. If you happened to bring a Sniper Rifle that would be easiest but any weapon will do. The padlocks have a golden color. Get really close to your screen so you can see every little pixel and make out the color difference. Then shoot the padlock and repeat for the other 2 hostages. Just be really careful not to shoot the hostage or the explosives near them as it will fail the mission. You could also climb up to them, which means you don’t have to aim over such a long distance but it will take much longer to reach them that way.
Reach the Refinery Door
After you shot the 3 padlocks off the hostages you can go to the rooftop of the main building to the refinery door.
Stash your weapons
To enter the refinery you must leave your weapons in the bag outside. Now a series of cutscenes will play.
Talk to Kim
After the cutscenes you are moved back to Prosperity automatically. Talk to Kim to end the mission.
This concludes the “Through the Wringer” main mission in Far Cry New Dawn. Now the next Story Mission Inside Job becomes available.
