How to unlock N7: Cerberus Lab


N7: Cerberus Lab Walkthrough

Go left up the stairs and through the doors, you will find Enemy opposition there. In order to get each of the three artifacts, you will need to deactivate the containment. Once you locate the artifact, eliminate the Cerberus troops and collect the artifact. Return to the landing pad and place the artifact onto the shuttle for extraction. Before doing so, there are a few things you can loot from here.

You will find a Sniper Rifle Enhanced Scope up the ramps from the initial landing pad. Directly to the right on the console, you can find 3000 Credits on a console. In the hall ahead there is a medical station that nets you 150 experience points. You can find 4000 more credits in the hallway, on the right. Down the hallways, past the reaper artifact, you can find a small room that contains a failed medi-gel experiment, that it is used to complete Citadel: Alien Medi-Gel Formula. Return to the beginning, and go right to pick up 3000 more credits.

Return to the base to locate the next artifact. Expect more Cerberus troops, and this time, alongside turrets. The second artifact can be found on the lowest level. Once you locate it, be careful as you deactivate the containment because two Cerberus Troopers will drop in right near you during the process. Pick the artifact and Commander Shepard will radio Steve Cortez, who has been driven away from the landing pad by Cerberus fire.

Now you must survive a horde of Cerberus troops until Steve Cortez is able to return for the extraction. Radio conversations along the way, will act as checkpoints to let you know you are making progress. Once you have killed enough Enemies, Commander Shepard will suggest keeping the landing pad clear. Return to the room where the shuttle originally dropped out, this will speed the activation of the next part. During the thrid radio communication, Steve Cortez will say it will be just a bit longer.

Eventually, the shuttle will show up and Cortez will tell you to hop on. Once you manage to do it, the Mission is completed.
