Begin the stage and use the stairs to reach the top. On your way you will come across a machine and a drone. If you don't take out the machine fast enough, the drone will start to restore its health. Try to eliminate the drone first, especially that it is flying quite low. Before you reach the top, you can use the side corridor; however, the poison will prevent you from going forward.

Once at the top, head towards the Medical Station [1] - Research Zone | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Once at the top, head towards the Medical Station [1]. The only available path will take you through the door visible in the screenshot [2].

You will reach a large room protected by three guards - Research Zone | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

You will reach a large room protected by three guards. First, eliminate opponents with gas weapons, and only then focus on the enemy with a flamethrower. Check your message and overcharge a circuit on the platform. This will grant you access to the door in the back of the room. Open it, defeat your enemy and collect the nearby items. Go upstairs.

Defeat him and use the technical corridor. If you turn right immediately, you will find an elevator that will take you down. This way, you will unlock the shortcut to the Medical Station. If you move right, you can overcharge a cable, and thus open door on your left [3]. There is another technical corridor on the other side.

If you use it, you will end up in the location presented in the screenshot - Research Zone | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

If you use it, you will end up in the location presented in the screenshot. There is an audiolog protected by two walking Rigs. Defeat them and move on the only available path. You will reach the place where you spotted the Creo worker the last time. Head to the Medical Station.

Rest and get back to the Exo-Lift, used as a shortcut to the upper floor. Defeat an enemy in the technical room and use another elevator, located in the corridor. You will notice the Creo worker once more. Walk around the device, and use the technical corridor on the left. Next to the entrance, you will come across an opponent that you should eliminate as soon as possible.

Downstairs, there is a human enemy and two machines with containers - Research Zone | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Downstairs, there is a human enemy and two machines with containers. They won't appear, unless you open the door (need to interact with the only available spot in the area). Jump out of the technical room and move left [1]. Defeat some enemies and you will get to another door that will take you directly to the main hall (and unlock another shortcut).

Get back to the place where you turned towards the Medical Station. At the end of the corridor, upstairs, you will find a wire that can be overcharged with your drone. Do it and open the door [2].

Inside, there is a machine with a container. Defeat it and go to the Exo-Lift. Destroy the grate and jump down. You will face a walking Rig. Remember that you need to kill it twice.

The door to lab 01 is locked but inside lab 02, there is a technical corridor on the right. Use it to access lab 01.
