Below you'll find an overview of the Main Mission called Steal the Survey Data. We'll provide a brief Walkthrough, an Objective Log, details of any Collectibles, and any additional information you might find useful.


The opening task of Chapter 3 is a simple one: you need to find drones in the environment and interact with them. All four will be marked with objective markers in your HUD, so there's no need to go looking for them. As you go about the Mission, destroy as many enemies as possible so you can earn bonus COAM.

When you've collected the four pieces of survey data, deal with the mechs that are brought in via helicopter, then make your way to the new objective marker to prevent delivery of any data. When you get there, make sure to Supply and then begin to destroy the enemy mechs. Midway through the battle, though, a ship will appear and start attacking you. Some pretty powerful enemies will get out and attack you, so destroy them too. After that, you'll need to take down the Heavy Warship. For more information, check out our How to Beat Heavy Warship guide. Taking it down ends the Mission.
