If this task is unavailable in your journal, then it means that maybe you haven't made enough progress in the game yet. Take care of the main quests of the primary campaign. Don't play the DLC if you haven't unlocked the Levitate ability yet, which can be acquired during My brother's keeper main mission. The stronger Jesse gets, the more easily she will be able to defeat the more powerful opponents of the DLC.

You will soon reach the first checkpoint - Control AWE: A Dark Place walkthrough - Walkthrough - Control Guide

You will soon reach the first checkpoint. Every time you visit a checkpoint, it's worth to check whether you have gathered enough materials to construct or improve a new type of Service Weapon - Surge. It can be used to eliminate enemies and one of the trophies is associated with it.

Surge works like a grenade launcher that launches sticky bombs. Fired explosive charges (you can fire up to three of them) can stick to opponents and elements of the environment. Then, you can detonate them manually.

Important note - Surge grenades can generate a huge explosion. They should always be detonated from a safe distance, otherwise Jesse could be seriously injured or even die on the spot.

After winning the fight, take your time to leave this room - Control AWE: A Dark Place walkthrough - Walkthrough - Control Guide

After winning the fight, take your time to leave this room. It's worth looking for the bulletin board shown in the picture above, which allows you to add side missions to Jesse's journal. Side quests have been described in a separate section of our walkthrough.
