Efforts against the Earthbound have been ongoing throughout the sector. Maybe you've even been involved in some of the fights. It doesn't matter to me if you have. They've got some sort of machine in the caves here that we don't like. You need to smash it and bring back a piece called the Central Emitter.

If you actually accomplish this, Specialist Franklin here will make sure you're set up with some fancy new toys. Of course, my bet is that you run in there and die a few times, maybe a dozen, and then chickenshit out like the rest of the clones around here and run away.
Mission-.pngWhat do you want the parts for?
MissionX.pngI don't really feel like doing anything for you.

Not me who wants the parts. The Agency does. Don't matter to me why and shouldn't matter to you either. I'm not here to answer your questions. I just want to get this thing and get the hell out of this shit hole.
Mission-.pngWhat is a Central Emitter?

Beats me. Supposedly you can identify it by the amount of noise it'll be making when it's connected to the power source. That's all they tell me.

Thanks, I'll be collecting these items now.
MissionX.pngNo thanks.

You did it. So this little piece of shit is what has the Agency so upset, huh? Maybe now I can get the hell out of here and go home. Be sure to ask Specialist Franklin for your new toys.

Mission Map


  • The Disruptor Machine is in the large cave at the west end of the Earthbound Retreat. However when attacked it will keep repairing itself from a remote power source. The power source needs to be destroyed first to be able to complete the mission.
  • The power source itself is at the end of the northwest tunnel of the Earthbound Retreat and is guarded by both veteran Earthbound Guards and Disruptor Machine workers. As it is only a level 1 item, one single ranged shot is enough to destroy it, which means you don't have to kill all the enemies standing around the power source!
  • Check the very back of the large cave, in a wood-fenced alcove, for a chest which will give you the following Explorer Achievement:
