  • The key which is in the kitchen, it allows to open the drawer of the night table in the bedroom.
  • The laptop hidden under the bed. To open it, you need either a high Intelligence score, or scan the posters and turn on the turntable which will launch a piece of music that will serve as a clue.

Then comes the hacking of the computer go to the Net, click on the image on the left, then on the pirate site go to "Join us" and "File". Open the "ATT_ANIM_VIDEO" video file.

Analysis of braindances

The next day the painful things begin if you don't like braindances. Watching them while speeding up the viewing helps in any case. Watch each DS then go over the scenery and the characters in review in each yellow stripe. The only really important DS is the 3rd, the info you want is the solar panel at 00:27 in the next room and the plate at 1:00 between the wall and the garage doors. Without these 2 clues you risk arriving at the wrong farm, which will cause the death of the nephew and cut the rest.

Farm and rescue

Once on the farm, she has an important automated defense system. You are spoiled for choice to navigate your way. Use engineering to defuse everything (and gain Skill points). Use hack to turn everything off easily, or just shoot mines and turrets. Enter the house on the right and open the secret door upstairs to disable everything via a computer if you wish.

To enter the barn, you have to go through the gauge and climb through the scaffolding to go through an open window.

Once the nephew is saved, River Ward considers revenge. You have to either dissuade him from doing it or say that you are going to help him. If you encourage him to just take revenge, it will put an end to the mission streak and possible romance. Once the mission is complete, you should receive a call from River and an invitation over the next few days.
