Unlocking the mission
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). However, we advise you to proceed with this task after you complete the Ubiquity mission. This will allow you to use the Residuum to keep the powers, weapons, and other equipment acquired during the expeditions permanently.
To deal with the described lead, you need to visit the Updaam district. Head out during the middle of the day.
Gatecrash Charlie's game
When you get to Updaam district, you have to locate the bridge shown in the picture, unavailable at other times of the day. It leads to the castle, which is the headquarters of Charlie. On the way to your destination, you may encounter single opponents. Bypassing them can be difficult, especially if you do not yet have the Shift power or Aether.
The castle has several different entrances, and if you choose one of the more obvious ones, then you have to take into account that Charlie not only will expect your arrival but had been giving the current location of the hero through megaphones.
If you already have Shift power (from Julianna) and you can teleport to greater distances, look for alternative entrances, such as high shutters or balconies.
Find Charlie's minicom
Exploration of the interior of the castle can be different depending on the chosen entrance and tactics. Expect that during its exploration, you can encounter opponents. If you do not want to be the target of a larger group, it is advisable to rely on quiet methods of their elimination (stealth attacks, silenced weapons, nail guns - one of them is in the castle).
You need to head towards the upper floors of the building. If you meet Charlie, you can immediately attack and kill the Visionary. Note that an alarmed Charlie can retreat to a room on the roof. If that happens, you have to be very careful because there are laser traps in the area. In addition, there is a turret inside the room - it has to be destroyed or hacked quickly.
Charlie's death will not end this investigation, but you will be able to obtain the Shift power or one of its upgrades.
To advance in the described mission, you have to examine the top floor of the castle thoroughly. Locate the passageway that leads to Charlie's personal quarters. Use the kick to destroy the boards at the door. In one of the rooms, you will find a minicom- you need to interact with it and read the messages stored on the computer. You'll find out about Charlie's planned meeting with Fia.
Toss Charlie's bedroom
You have to go back to previous room. In this area, there are several collectibles to find but to advance in the mission you need the photograph of Fristad. You'll find it on a bed in a dimly-lit corner of the room. The photo is a clue about the meeting place of the two Visionaries.
Search the Fristad shore
You can leave the castle and the Updaaam district now. Plan the journey to the Rock Fristad district evening hours.
The clue suggests that the place from the picture is located on the coast. Explore the entire coastline of Fristad Rock. Next to one of the larger locations with opponents, you will notice the plane wreck from the picture (was in the background in the photo). You have to go along the shore to the left of this wreck.
The objective and at the same time the place where the couple took a photo, is shown in the above picture - in addition to the wreck, you will notice 09 from the photo. You can use the entrance to the bunker.
You will reach a room with a large console with data cassettes. Examine the journal Order of Operations lying on the console to learn the code (in our case, it was 0231, but you can draw another).
Find the cypher
You can leave Fristad Rock because for the moment there's nothing more you can do here. After reaching the tunnels, choose Karl's Bay. You can visit this district at any time except the middle of the day.
You have to explore the Yerkhva location. It's one of the buildings in Karl's Bay district, and you can enter it freely.
Right after you get inside, you should see a safe under the table. Use the previously acquired code to open it. You'll find another journal (Aesthetics Are Key) in the safe. You will find out that Charlie has a thing for Fia, and you will learn another combination (in our case, it was 2631).
The described lead will end at this point, but you will unlock a new mission linked to Charlie and Fia, Afternoon Delight. We described it on a separate page of the guide.
