This page of the guide to Deathloop contains a walkthrough of the Arsenal Leads/ mission Ubiquity. We describe when you can find out about the Residuum, how to get to the Wenjie laboratory and beat all the copies, how to find out about the experiments and complete one of them with the harvester, as well how to unlock collecting the Residuum and keep the equipment of the character.
- Unlocking the mission
- Find Wenjie's Research
- Kill every Wenjie
- Harvest the residuum
- Plug in the harvester
- Activate the experiment
Unlocking the mission
This is the first and most important of the Arsenal Leads, thanks to which you will learn how to saturate equipment with Residuum and assign it to Colt permanently. This will allow you to keep earned powers (Slabs), weapons, trinkets, and upgrades despite advancing to the next Loop (by default, they are lost at the end of the day or when you die).
You will be able to start the described lead after completing Colt's prologue - The Longest Day. The mission will appear in your journal after looting a safe in an apartment in the Updaam district and finding a document with the personal information and whereabouts of 8 Visionaries (bosses and main antagonists).
Find Wenjie's Research
Your task will be to reach the headquarters of Dr. Wenjie Evans, who is one of the 8 Visionaries. You have to start by going back to the tunnels to plan your next expedition.
In the mission preparations menu, there will be a new tutorial available about the time of the day. Namely, it covers matching the time of day to the task to complete. Colt will have to visit Wenjie's lab in the afternoon. It means that you will test the option to speed up time for the first time, that is, skipping the current time of day (in this case, the middle of the day) and advancing immediately to part of the day associated with the task. After the afternoon, choose The Complex as a destination.
Wenjie's Laboratory is located quite far from the place where you start the game. This means that you have to go through a large part of The Complex. You can choose any path and eliminate or bypass the encountered threats (opponents, cameras, guns, traps, etc.) in any way you want. The destination is shown in the picture - it is a large multi-level building.
As soon as you get to the lab, you will discover that there is a large number of Wenjie instead of a single opponent. You have to eliminate them gradually. Start by getting rid of the Wenjie that will stand in your way as you approach the main room of the lab.
You need to examine the lab. First of all, approach the board shown in the picture and notes attached to it. (To Reap What You Sow; Unknown Unknowns). You will learn about the Residuum.
Kill every Wenjie
Return to fighing Wenjie copies from the lab. To find them, use the icons appearing on the screen and traces left by the defeated copies. Try to fight only one or at most two Wenjie at time. Look for opportunities for surprise attacks, including assassination using machete.
Harvest the residuum
After killing the last Wenjie (she will turn into a large motionless creature), return to the board with attached notes and find Portable Harvester - the picture above shows the device. Colt will start moving it.
Get the device to the last defeated Wenjie, and use it on her suck up the remains and get Residuum.
Plug in the harvester
With the device is filled, you have to reach a infusor in the laboratory. Insert the harvester into the side slot.
Activate the experiment
All that's left is to activate the experiment - you have to enter the large chamber (picture 1) and then use a Hackamajig to start the device remotely (picture 2 - turn to the button with the gadget in your hand to locate a place to hack and hold L1).
Colt will die at that moment (don't worry, this is planned), and after being reborn on the beach, you will be able to collect Residuum in the game world.
The system of collecting and using Residuum is described in more detail on the Keeping powers and weapons - how? page. Here are some of its most important assumptions:
- You can obtain the Residuum by killing and "absorbing" Visionaries and interacting with shiny objects from the game world.
- You can spend Residuum between missions to Infuse Gear - powers, weapons, slabs, and upgrades acquired within a given loop. This will let you keep them permanently, and you will not lose them.
- You can use collected unnecessary items to get some Residuum for other items.
- Unused Residuum is lost at the end of the day or when Colt dies (if you use Reprise, you can reach your body and recover the Residuum).
We recommend you now take up other missions from the Arsenal Leads tab to unlock and keep each of the main powers (slabs) thanks to the Residuum. This will allow you to use the powers in subsequent expeditions to make it easier for you to complete them.
