Introductions Edit

Contact Introduced By Edit

New Contact(s) Edit

My friend Tina Chung asked me to send you over. She's a high tech P.I. specializing in illegal technology, and she always needs heroes like you to help her investigate the Freakshow and Nemesis. She works primarily with technological heroes and has access to invention and gadget enhancements.

Tina can be harsh, but she is good at what she does. Don't let her get under your skin; if you prove yourself, she will accept you.

Neal Kendrick has a lot of dirt on the Freakshow and Nemesis. He used to be with the FCC, but now he concentrates on helping heroes with their investigations. He works primarily with technological heroes and has access to Invention and Gadget Enhancements.

You will enjoy working with Neal. He is determined and skilled.

Information Edit

Cybernetics Expert

Collin Larson is one of those people who seems to be always near greatness but never in the spotlight. A talented, driven engineer, Collin was one of the workhorses of the cybernetics revolution. He helped develop the first fully robotic artificial limbs and was a key member of the team that perfected nerve machine integration. Yet, for all his hard work, Collin remains an unsung hero of the scientific community. This may be due to his habit of getting his hands dirty with matters not scientific in nature. For several years now, Collin has been fascinated by the city's heroes, and he spends almost all his free time working with them to catch criminals, especially cybernetic thieves like the Freakshow. When he's honest with himself, Collin has to admit that he is beginning to find this work much more rewarding than his research.

Initial Contact Edit

The chance to work with heroes like you is worth any amount of hassle. I hope we have a lot of success together.

Story Arc Edit

Souvenir Edit

Freaklympics gold medal

You've kept this crude metal disk as a reminder of the time you put a stop to:

The Freaklympics

It started when your contact told you about a series of Freakshow office invasions. While fighting the Freakshow, you found out that these invasions were part of a competition.

It wasn't long before the next event started, with a wave of Freakshow thefts across town. You did your part to stop the thefts, and found a flyer for the Freaklympics.

The next Freaklympic event involved the kidnapping of city councilmen. Fortunately, you were able to rescue all the officials before any harm was done to them.

You got a break in your investigation when you learned that the Kerner, the Freak who arranged the Freaklympic event schedule, was going to be on a scavenger raid in a Council base. You fought through both the Freaks and the Council to capture him. Your efforts were rewarded, for the Kerner had a copy of the full event schedule.

You were able to stop the next event in its tracks and prevent the Freakshow's Upstart Faction from stealing technology from the local lab. You also learned that some of the Freaks hoped to break their leader, Upstart, out of prison.

Before you could investigate the Upstart Faction's plan, you had to stop another group of Freaks from destroying a shipment of school computers with firebombs.

You then found out that the Upstart Faction was planning to plant explosives and sonic destabilizers under Brickstown to blow the Brick House open and free Upstart. When you arrived to stop them, you found the faction fighting another group of Freaks who had orders to stop the prison break.

With Brickstown saved, you went to the final event of the Freaklympics, the award ceremony. There you captured Mistah Static, one of Dreck's right hand men. From him you learned that Dreck's word had sent Upstart to jail in the first place, though Mistah Static was unable to give a reason for Dreck's betrayal.

There are still some unanswered questions in your mind, but at least you know that you put an end to the Freaklympics and the Freakshow's wave of crime.

Stop the office rampages Edit

Briefing

Freakshow have been rampaging from business office to business office non-stop today! They're terrorizing everyone inside. Here's the strange part: The Freaks are organized into half a dozen raiding parties. When the Freaks show this much organization, I get worried. Can you help stop the office rampages?

See if you can find some clue to what the Freakshow are up to. It might help us stop them.

Mission Objective(s)

Terrified office workers flee the building or hide under desks.

  • Bust Freak leader and his crew
    • 3 hostages to rescue
    • Lead each hostage out

On the Freaks' leader, you found an interesting score sheet.


Icon clue generic
Score sheet
This crumpled piece of paper chronicles the recent attacks made by the group of Freaks you defeated. It lists the attacks' locations and their times, as well as an estimate of the damage done to the buildings. At the bottom of the list is the scribbled comment, 'The other groups are racking up a lot of points. We gotta step up the pace!'

After freeing the third office worker you will be ambushed by four waves of freakshow



Debriefing

You did a great job stopping those Freaks. Here's something you might want to know: I've talked to several other heroes who've fought the Freakshow recently, and some of them have also discovered score sheets like the one you found, listing Freaks' recent attacks. I think this might be part of some competition among the Freakshow factions.

Stop the Freakshow thefts Edit

Briefing

From what I hear, the next event in this destructive Freakshow competition has begun. The Freakshow are on a rampage through the city, stealing anything alcoholic they can get their hands on. I've already sent some other heroes to stop a few of these raids, but we're going to need all the people we can to shut this down. Can you help stop the Freakshow thefts?

It looks like the Freak's actions are a lot more coordinated than ever before. This is definitely something big. I'm sending you to a neighborhood where several Freakshow teams have converged. I need you to locate each team leader and take them out. I'll call for an emergency force field to isolate the area.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Something about this Freakshow crime wave just doesn't add up. Keep an eye out for any clues to their plans.

Mission Objective(s)

The streets are slick with spilled liquor, and the whole neighborhood smells of alcohol.

  • Defeat Freaks' team captains
    • 4 captains to defeat

You contained the Freakshow violence.

Freaklympics charter
This glossy flyer announces the start of the first Freaklympics, a competition for fun, fame, and prizes among the Freakshow factions. competition categories include office invasions, mass thefts, and more. The flyer cautions competitions not to let anyone else know about the Freaklympics, especially heroes.


Debriefing

The Freaklympics? I don't believe this. This is totally insane! They'll tear this city apart with this little competition of theirs, and they won't care a bit. This whole thing has to be stopped.

Rescue the city councilmen from the Freakshow Edit

Briefing

I just got word that several city councilmen have been kidnapped by the Freakshow. And get this: the original kidnappers were just attacked by another group of Freaks! This is so chaotic, it could only be another Freaklympics event. Can I count on you to rescue the city councilmen from the Freakshow?

Those freaks may be fighting each other, but I suspect they'll drop everything to attack you.

Unnecessary Solicitation

The Freaklympics have gone full contact. You need to get those kidnapped city councilmen to safety, fast.

Mission Objective(s)

The floor of this old office building is littered with broken beer bottles and Excelsior ampoules.

  • Save councilmen from Freakshow
    • 5 city councilmen to save

You have rescued all of the kidnapped officials and ruined another Freaklympics event.

Enemies

  • Councilwoman Mandisa (hostage)
  • Councilwoman Savitari (hostage)



Debriefing

I've heard from the police; They have all those city councilmen in protective custody. The police tell me that the various Freakshow factions are looking at the Freaklympics as their big chance to win Dreck's favor. So they're going all out to win, no matter who gets hurt in the process. I have a feeling that this is far from over.

Catch the Kerner Edit

Briefing

We've had a lucky break in the Freaklympics. Seems like one of the Freaks you brought in cracked under police questioning and told us about the next event. You won't believe this, but it's a scavenger hunt for Council gear. It's supposed to take place in Council bases! But it gets better. The Freak responsible for scheduling events, a juicer called the Kerner, is going to be on one of those raids. If you can catch the Kerner, it may give us a shot at stopping the next events before they start. Can you do it?

Between the Freakshow and the Council, this could get nasty. Just remember that you're after the Kerner first and foremost.

Unnecessary Solicitation

Remember that your top priority is to find the Kerner.

Mission Objective(s)

The sounds of heavy fighting inside indicate that this Freaklympics event is far from over.

  • Bust the Kerner and his crew

You found and defeated the Kerner, and found a list of upcoming events.


Icon clue generic
Freaklympics event list
This slick, stylish pamphlet contains a complete list of all the events in the Freaklympics. The list of events is at once audacious and suicidal, from the almost mundane 100-meter smash and grab, to the mind-boggling Rockman wrangling rodeo roundup.

Debriefing

That list of Freaklympic events is just what we need. Now we can start anticipating their attacks instead of just reacting to them. I'll get copies of this list to the police and my other contacts.

Prevent the Freakshow tech thefts Edit

Briefing

Thanks to that Freaklympics schedule you got, we should be able to stop the Freaks before they can do much more damage. Apparently, the next scheduled event involves breaking into research labs and stealing high tech equipment. Can you help us prevent those Freakshow tech thefts?

If we're lucky, you'll be able to stop this raid before it really starts.

Unnecessary Solicitation

I want that Freakshow theft stopped. We have to put an end to these crazy Freaklympics!

Mission Objective(s)

Smashed glass and twisted aluminum testify to the presence of the Freakshow.

  • Defeat all Freaks in lab
    • 3 technicians to rescue

You stopped the Freaks' lab theft. But something one of the Freaks said sticks in your mind.

Enemies

Notable NPCs

  • Lab technician x 3 (NPC Hostage)



Icon clue generic
The Upstart Faction
One of the Upstart Faction Freaks you defeated said:

'You heroes don't know nothing! Nobody knows nothing! We're gonna win this, and we're gonna be Dreck's new favorites. No one'll be able to stop us once Upstart's on the streets again.'


Debriefing

It sounds like all of the Freaks at that lab were members of the Upstart Faction, a group of Freakshow dedicated to total anarchy and the end of all government. Their leader, a young Freak named Upstart, was like a living messiah to them. But he was captured several months ago. If they are planning on breaking him out of the Brick House, that could take these Freaklympics from bad to madness. I'll see if I can turn anything up.

Save the warehouse before the Freakshow torch it Edit

Briefing

We have another Freaklympic event about to go down, and this one is big. Apparently, Dreck's set a number of targets for arson, including a warehouse holding all of the new computers for Paragon City's elementary schools. That's low, even for them. With all the money budgeted for post-war reconstruction, I doubt the city can afford more computers for those kids. Can you save the warehouse before the Freakshow torch it?

Also, I've been looking into the plans of the Freakshow's Upstart Faction. I haven't learned anything concrete yet, but I'll keep digging.

Unnecessary Solicitation

You've got to find all of their incendiary devices.

Bomb

Firebomb

Mission Objective(s)

You're surprised even the Freakshow could sink low enough to destroy school computer, especially in tough times like these.

  • Stop Freaks torching warehouse
    • 10 firebombs to defuse

You've defused the last of the firebombs and saved the new school computers.

Enemies

Badge villain freakshow Freakshow


Debriefing

Good work at the warehouse. Paragon's kids will have some decent computers to learn on, thanks to you.

Stop the bombing Edit

Briefing

I've been looking into the activities of that Freakshow faction commanded by Upstart, and I think I know what they're planning. They found a section of sewers that pass directly under the Brick House, the big prison in Brickstown, and they're planning to pack it full of explosives. If they set off that charge, it'll collapse about half of the Brick House and take out a major chunk of Brickstown itself. And then they figure they can grab Upstart in the middle of the chaos. You've got to stop that bombing.

You can access the sewers through an entrance in Skyway City. That way you can surprise the Freaks.

Mission Objective(s)

The somber gloom of these caverns is at odds with the Freaks' raucous laughter.

  • Bust Freak leader and his crew
    • 3 bombs to defuse

You prevented this Freakshow faction from freeing their imprisoned leader, Upstart. Something you overheard during the fight sticks in your mind.

You overheard the Bootsquad Faction Freaks say:

'Upstart ain't ever gettin' out, and that's straight from Dreck!'


Debriefing

Strange. It seems the leader of the Freakshow doesn't want Upstart freed. I'd like to know more about this, but first we have to shut the Freaklympics down once and for all.

Crash the Freaklympics awards ceremony and arrest Mistah Static Edit

Briefing

According to that event schedule you found, the Freaklympics are nearly over. All that's left on the schedule is their award ceremony. One of Dreck's own top men, a Tank Freak called Mistah Static, will be giving out the medals. If we could arrest him, it could help solve dozens of different investigations. Will you crash the Freaklympics awards ceremony and arrest Mistah Static?

Let's blow out the torch on this one. I know you can do it.

Mission Objective(s)

This is where the Freaklympics end.

These crude metal disks have been punched out of a manhole cover and painted bronze, silver and gold. They are each suspended from a ragged scrap of computer cord.


Debriefing

That's about it for the Freaklympics. You sure gave them a closing ceremony that won't forget anytime soon. I just hope that they don't try something like this again for another four years.

Mistah Static's testimony is something. If it's true, then Dreck is responsible for Upstart's jailing. I sure wish I knew what Upstart found out to make his leader betray him like that.

Missions Edit

Keep the Freakshow from disrupting the satellite communication conference Edit

Briefing

The Freakshow have been mouthing off about disrupting the satellite communication conference that's happening today. Their leader, a Tank Freak called @br4mz, claims it's all about fighting globalization, but it looks to me like the Freaks are more worried about new security measures that would keep them from pirating satellite TV. And they'll kill to keep getting free television. Could you go to the offices where it is being held and make sure that the Freakshow don't do just that? The Freakshow will move soon, you won't have a lot of time to stop them. Maybe two hours at the most.

You'll have to do two things to prevent a tragedy here, Hero. First, you'll need to rescue any hostages the Freakshow have taken. Second, you'll have to defeat Sputnik to make sure he doesn't try this again.

Mission Objective(s)

Sounds of chaos, Freakshow style, erupt from the building as you approach

  • Bust Sputnik and his crew (Timed, 2 hours)
    • 7 bussinesspeople remaining

You have defeated all the Freakshow, and restored order to the conference

Enemies

Notable NPCs

  • Bussinessperson x7 (NPC Hostage)
  • Sputnik (Freakshow Tank) (Boss)



Debriefing

This was a big win, Hero. We cannot allow those Freakshow clowns to call their shots and threaten legitimate bussiness.


Take the fight to the Family in Independence Port Edit

Briefing

I have a warning for you. My contacts tell me that the Family have put the word out that you're not welcome in Independence Port. They've put a hit on you, and a bounty for any family member who takes you down. I think you might want to be a bit pro-active and take the fight to them on the streets of Independence Port.

The Family don't play around. You'll have to defeat about 30 of them or so to get the message across that you're not playing either. If you're having trouble finding them, you might want to try the Justice Quay.


V archetypeicon stalker Ambush!

After accepting the mission you will be ambushed by a single wave of Family gangsters


Mission Objective(s)

  • Defeat the Family in Independence Port
    • Defeat 30 Family

You've taught the Family the lesson. The hit is off.

Enemies

Badge villain family The Family


Debriefing

The Family have withdrawn the hit on you. You caused enough damage that it was just too dangerous for them.


Take the Freakshow hacking operation offline Edit

Briefing

Despite their chaotic tendencies, the Freakshow make very efficient use of technology. I've had one of my sources lloking for Freakshow hacking operations, to try and disrupt their computer infiltration and data raiding. We just found one of their netwrok nodes, and the Freakshow are coordinating a huge strike through it. If you're up for a challenge, I could give the location so you can take the Freakshow offline. If you take this one, it could be tricky. The Freakshow will react quickly to change their plans, so you'll have about 90 minutes at the outside to finish things up.

I am providing you a disc containing a program to disrupt their network, and shut down their current activity. Shutting them down is your only priority here, so don't get too caught up fighting them if you can.


Icon clue generic

The computer program on this disk will completely shut down just about any computer when it is executed


Mission Objective(s)

You stopped the Freakshow raid and shut down that location completely. This should disrupt their network offensives for a time.


Help Terra Volta Security Chief Edit

Briefing

The Security Chief for Terra Volta needs some help with the Sky Raiders. Do me a favor and help him out. If you say yes, you'll want to bring backup. It's dangerous there.

Terra Volta is a hot spot due to its strategic value. I would recommend that you bring some help with you.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Assist the Security Chief

Briefing

The Sky Raiders are very active, especially over at Challenger Tech and Carter Engineering. See if you can do something about that. Here's some info on the area.

Icon clue generic
Terra Volta briefing
When Oswald Price built the first electrical power plant in Paragon City, he placed it on a verdant, underdeveloped island in the middle of the city's port. Drawing on his classical education, he named the island 'Terra Volta'. Oswald's island soon blossomed with industry, as manufacturing companies sought the proximity of the port and power plant. The plant eventually gave way to a modern nuclear facility, but Terra Volta remains the city's primary power source. Unfortunately, it has not remained industrious. Many companies abandoned their factories during the Rikti War, fearing an attack on the plant. As a result, several villain groups now make their home on the island. The nuclear power plant remains under the city's control, but no one knows how long it will stay that way.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Keep the peace in Terra Volta
    • Defeat 35 Sky Raiders

You have defeated 35 Sky Raiders.

Enemies

Debriefing

Nice work in Terra Volta. That was no mean feat!


Get over to Speilman's warehouse and defeat any of the Family you find there Edit

Briefing

A warehouse owner named Karl Speilman has reported some trouble with the Family. They want him to pay protection money to them and have warned him that bad things are going to happen today if he doesn't pay up. Get over to Speilman's warehouse and defeat any of the Family you find there. You have about an hour at most to stop the Family.

No time to waste, hero, they could be busting the place up already. You'll need to defeat all of the Family's goons in Speilman's warehouse to show them that the city won't tolerate hoods like them abusing upright citizens.

Mission Objective(s)

Signs of struggle and property damage indicate that the Family, is already here.

  • Defeat all Family at Speilman Warehouse - 60 minutes

You defeated all members of the Family.

Notable NPCs

Enemies

Badge villain family The Family



Debriefing

Ordinary business people like Karl Speilman are what keep a city running. You did a good thing protecting his warehouse today.


Defeat Freakshow in Terra Volta Edit

Briefing

A lot of the city's power comes from the Reactor facility in Terra Volta. If the reactor were to go down, it would cause chaos in every zone of Paragon City. The Freakshow are all too aware of this, and would like nothin better than to see Terra Volta taken offline. I need a hero who can go to Terra Volta and keep the Freakshow from causing more damage there.

The Freakshow have been seen all over the zone, often blockading roads or fighting with other villains. If you're having trouble finding them, you could check the Walker Energy complex or the Savage Waste Disposal facility.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat Freakshow in Terra Volta
    • Defeat 30 Freakshow

You have defeated enough Freakshow

Enemies

Badge villain freakshow Freakshow


Debriefing

You really fought the good fight against the Freakshow, Hero. Terra Volta can keep running thanks to your efforts.


Go to the warehouse and recover anything you find there Edit

Briefing

Investigations by some contacts of mine have located one of the main storage warehouses for the Family's smuggling operation in Independence Port. Now all I need is a hero willing to go to that warehouse and recover anything there. Hopefully, there might be something there that could link them to one of the European syndicates.

If the operation's ringleader is there, I want him arrested. Otherwise, I'm afraid this mission will be a failure.

Search the place thouroughly; we need to recover everything they have. Most importantly, do not let the ringleader escape. He's certain to have valuable information for us.

Mission Objective(s)

Debriefing

You hit the jackpot! Superadine samples that were ready for shipping to Europe, couterfeit foreign bills, and a valuable art treasure stolen on it's way here. This will go a long way in bringing these thugs down.


Fight the Family in Independence Port Edit

Briefing

The Family have started leaning on the bussinesspeople of Independence Port. They seem to think that with so much hero attention going to protecting Terra Volta or fighting groups like the Council and the Freakshow, they're free to do as they please. I'd like to see them taught just how wrong they are.

If the Family thinks heroes aren't paying attention to their crimes, they're sure to try and increase their activity. If you can defeat about 30 of them, they should be able to get the message.


V archetypeicon stalker Ambush!

You really showed the Family, Hero! They won't think that they can escape the notice of Paragon City's heroes for some time after all of this. The City's bussinesspeople are thankful.


Defeat Freakshow in Talos Island Edit

Briefing

Talos Island is seeing a lot of Freakshow activity in the last few days, and it's making life difficult for people living there. The city is asking for heroes to fight the Freakshow in Talos Island. When I heard that, I thought you might be able to help.

New Sparta and New Troy are both getting overrun, but I'm sure any neighborhood in the Talos Island would welcome your assistance.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat Freakshow in Talos Island
    • Defeat 30 Freakshow

You have defeated enough Freakshow

Enemies

I knew I could count on you, Hero. The Freaks didn't even know what hit them.


Prevent Frankie from sleeping with the fishesEdit

Briefing

Word on the street is that Frankie Frost, the nephew of Family head Sebastian Frost, is in big trouble. His uncle has called for him to be killed, apparently because the punk was skimming. How stupid can you be? Frankie might be willing to talk if he thinks that he could be protected, and that could hurt the Family badly. I need you to prevent Frankie from sleeping with the fishes. He's on the run right now; you've only got 90 minutes to find him.

Frankie took to the streets this morning. I called for an emergency force field, but I'm afraid I may not have been fast enough to keep the Family from tailing him.

Mission Objective(s)

The residents of Picadilly Row have wisely decided to remain inside today. The streets are deserted except for the Family

  • Capture Frankie & his men - 90 minutes timed

You defeated all the Family and safely captured Frankie Frost.

Enemies

Badge villain family The Family


Notable NPCs



Debriefing

With Frankie Frost in custody, we can get a lot of dirt on the Family. This was definitely a coup.


Defeat members of the Family in Independence Port Edit

Briefing

The Small bussiness association in Independence Port are reporting an increase in activity by the Family in the zone. They're pushing people around and acting like they're the real power in the area. People are hoping that a hero will be willing to show those thugs who the real power in the city is.

Defeating about 30 Family members or so should be enough to demonstrate that they're not untouchable. I've heard that they've recently stepped up operations around Power Island, but you should be able to make an impression on them anywhere in the zone you can find them.

Debriefing

Thugs like the Family always try to assert their power over honest people. As long as there are heroes to stand against them, they won't be able to get away with it.


Go to the office where Frank Brandon works, and get him out safely Edit

Briefing

The Family has discovered the identity of a man that was placed in the witness protection program after testifying against another crime organization on the west coast. The man's cover identity is, Frank Brandon. I think the Family is going to take him out as a favor to the West coast syndicate. I have someone headed to his apartment, but I need you to cover his workplace. Go to the office where Frank Brandon works, and get him out safely. He's in serious danger, and probably has less than an hour to live.

Hurry, they may be on their way there, already.

Mission Objective(s)

As you approach, it seems clear that the Family have chosen to strike Frank Brandon here, at his workplace.

  • Save Frank Brandon - 60 minutes timed

You have rescued, Frank Brandon

Enemies

Notes

The person to be rescued may also be named Roger Marshall or Will Tripper.

Debriefing

It's a good thing you were fast. You saved Frank Brandon's life today. He's going to be moved to a new city, and hopefully might see some peace and quiet this time.

Go to the office, prevent the fire from starting, and rescue the people that are being held by the Family Edit

Briefing

I have something that requires your attention. Sometime soon, the Family is going to do an arson job on a local business. It belongs to someone in their organization, who wants the insurance money. In addition to the property damage, the Family is arranging for several people to be in the building when the fire starts, so that it will seem more like an accident. Go to the office, prevent the fire from starting, and rescue the people that are being held by the Family. The fire bombs they use have to be disarmed simultaneously, so bring along a couple of teammates. You only have 90 minutes to stop the attack.

You'll need to concentrate on disabling the devices that will start the fire and rescuing the innocents. Don't worry too much about the individual Family goons.

Mission Objective(s)

You know that time is not on your side. Finding those fire bombs and innocents are the absolute priority.

  • Prevent the Family arson job - 90 minutes timed
    • 7 hostages, 3 bombs to disarm together

You stopped the fire bombs and rescued the innocents.

Notable NPCs

  • Hostage x7 (NPC Hostages)

Enemies

Debriefing (Mission Failure)

I wish you had been faster, Character. The building is gutted, but at least those captives managed to get out in when the Family left early

Debriefing (Mission Success)

It's hard to think about how callus the Family could be toward those people's lives. It's sickening. That's not even to mention how far that fire might have spread.

Hunt the Freakshow right back Edit

Briefing

This is something that might concern you, Hero. A contact I have in the Freakshow tells me that Dreck, the leader of the Freakshow, has ordered his men to hunt you down. I think it might be a good idea if you returned the favor and hunted the Freakshow right back.

The Freakshow aren't to be underestimated, they're tenacious and crazy. But if you can cause enough damage to them, even Dreck will realize that they don't need to antagonize you anymore. If you're having trouble finding Freaks, a lot of them can be found in Independence Port, Talos Island and Terra Volta.

Mission Objective(s)

  • Combat the Freakshow
    • Defeat 30 Freakshow

You have defeated enough Freakshow to deliver your message

Enemies

Badge villain freakshow Freakshow


Debriefing

Word from my informant is that the hunt is off, Hero. It seems that Bile, one of Dreck's lieutenants, ran a statistical analysis and found that you were causing more damage to them than before. My informant says that Dreck was badly embarrased.


Rescue Tony Bass from the Freakshow Edit

Briefing

The Freakshow have kidnapped Tony Bass, a city official, long suspected of corruption and having connections with The Family, the crime syndicate from Independence Port. it looks like everyone may have been wrong about him, however, if the Freaks want him. Go to the abandoned warehouse on your map, defeat all villains you find there, and rescue Tony Bass. You'll need to move on this one, you'll probably only have 90 minutes to wrap this up.

Something doesn't add up about this, I can't put my finger on it, but watch yourself.

Mission Objective(s)

As you enter the building, something doesen't feel quite right. There are a large number of vehicles parked nearby

  • Bust gang leaders, their crews - 90 minutes timed

You located Tony Bass and defeated the villains

Enemies

Badge villain freakshow Freakshow
Badge villain family The Family


Notable NPCs

  • Tony Bass (NPC Hostage)



Debriefing

So the Family was trying to rescue Tony Bass, huh? Sounds like our suspicions about him might have been correct after all. This is good information. Well done.


Make sure the Family doesn't hire the Freakshow Edit

Briefing

I've heard from several of my contacts that the Family have set up a meeting with the Freakshow. There's a good chance that they're planning to hire the Freakshow as extra muscle in their battle against the Warriors and the Tsoo. That would be a bad thing. It would be a good idea for you to make sure no deal gets made. You'll need to move fast on this one. This meeting won't take more than an hour and a half.

My sources tell me that the Freakshow chose the venue, which might explain why they're meeting in the sewers. You're main goal is simple. Take down everyone there. If we're lucky, they may even end up blaming each other.

Mission Objective(s)

The muck is disturbed in a way that indicates a large number of people came through this area recently.

  • Defeat all Family and Freaks - 1:30 timed

The Family and the Freakshow have all been defeated.


V archetypeicon stalker Ambush!

Enemies

Badge villain family The Family
Badge villain freakshow Freakshow



Debriefing

Sounds like it was an uneasy alliance to begin with, but I am glad you cut it off completely. The last thing the city needs is further Freakshow involvement between the Family, the Tsoo, and the Warriors.
