Well, I’ve finally found it! A Science Lab! I’m practically bursting with excitement over the beautiful possibilities of advanced weapons, bionics, and finally a chance to advance to post-threshold mutations. I’ve spent the past week preparing a forward base in a cabin nearby with all the medical care, food, and repair material I could ever need, and I’m finally ready to delve into the lab.
I tentatively explore the initial room, and to my pleasant surprise there are practically no zeds as compared to the basic Labs. This will be a cake walk! With increasing confidence I turn on my flashlight and tour the nearby rooms. Even the Kevlar Zombie I find is no match for me, and I can peruse the first floor of the lab with reckless abandon, and I’m not even that disappointed that I’ve found nothing. That is, until I reach The Room.
In The Room there are countless TALON UGVs. Just peeking in my torso gets shot up real bad, but I’m determined. This isn’t going to stop me, I put on my ESAPI vest and take them all down one by one. Nothing some pure determination can’t flatten. Once The Room was clear I begin to peruse. In the center of the otherwise empty room is a box of reinforced glass, holding some amazing loot no doubt.
I step into the room and gain the achievement for entering a finale room? Disappointing that the lab is only one floor, but the loot from this room should definitely be worth the effort. I crack open the door to the glass box… and inside are 38 mininukes! Holy fuck! I seal up that damn box and book it out of there, I don’t need to mess with any of that, I like my character very much. And that’s the story of my first Science Lab, little loot and a huge scare at the end.
