Now that you’ve got the newspaper note, keep pushing forward through the cave. Stick to the path where you found the note, but be ready to face some mutants. You’ll have to deal with them to move on to the next area.

Different Pathways

As you progress, you’ll encounter two pathways. If your primary goal in this cave is obtaining the Rebreather, take the left pathway. However, if you’re interested in exploring additional items, we suggest starting with the right pathway.

Left Pathway – Rebreather Room

Getting the Rebreather is straightforward if that’s your goal. After clearing the mutant pathways, head left. Stick to the right as you navigate the tough terrain. In the final room, amidst various items, lies the prized Rebreather.

Another important item in this area is the ??? Puzzle Piece. If you opt to first obtain the stun gun on the right side, backtrack to your entry point and take the left path. This cave section can be challenging, so remain vigilant.

Cross Light Blueprint

As you follow the left path, you’ll come across a fence you’ll need to break through, then take a zipline downward to continue. When you land, head to the left, where you’ll find a bunch of skeletons hanging around. Once you’re in this area, explore to find the Cross Light Blueprint lying on the floor. After grabbing it, keep moving along the path until you reach the final room, where you’ll discover the ‘??? Puzzle Piece’
