Find and repair the MedBay
You will begin at a station. Stick to the left side to reach the other part of the location. On the right side, you will find the console presented in the screenshot. Interact with it and a companion drone will appear. You can use it from now on.
Approach it and interact with it to begin a conversation. Reach the elevator and use the drone to enter it.
Move right and you will come across a damaged drone. You will have to destroy it with a range attack of your own companion drone. Move forward and you will see the MedBay soon enough.
Restore your supplies if needed and exit the station. On your left, there is a door that you can open by interaction. Right behind them, on the left, there is a circuit that you will have to overcharge. This shouldn't be much of a problem, as it only requires level 10 of Core Power. Just keep in mind that there is an enemy behind the pillar, on the right. Eliminate him and overcharge the circuit. The MedBay will become functional again.
Save the employees
Get back to the station. Check your message and speak with Sally. Get back to the place where you caused the overcharge previously. Defeat the opponent you came across earlier, and move forward. You will reach the place visible in the picture. The Exo-Lift  on the left won't work, and right behind a narrow passage in front of you , there are two Creo security guards, who would eliminate you immediately. Go right . There, you will face a single heavy-armored opponent. Defeat him and use the stairs to go down.
Right now, you should focus on the enemy in front of you . Lure him with your drone. On your right and left, you can encounter faster enemies with less armor, and there is no point fighting all of them at the same time. Defeat your opponent and turn left . One of the mentioned opponents can actually attack you. Just block the incoming attacks, and strike back immediately. It's the fastest way to eliminate your opponents and save your health. On your left, you will find an item, located behind the containers. You won't do anything with the very containers, as they require 75 level of Core Power. If you turn slightly left , you could use the Exo-Lift to reach one of the hardest areas, full of war machines. You won't be able to defeat them at this stage of the game.
Turn right. The other fast enemy will attack you. He may not spot you immediately, as he moves a lot around the area. Defeat him and you will end up in a place presented in the screenshot. Go left . Defeat an enemy behind the container, perform another overcharge (13 level of Core Power) and open the door. Speak with Davey until you run out of dialogue options. Use the right corridor  and eliminate the enemy presented in the picture. Get back to the broken Exo-Lift and the passage full of Creo Security Guards.
Destroy the obstacle and jump on the lower platform. You will find Hobbes. Overcharge his Rig, speak with him and collect all the nearby items and messages. Get back to the MedBay to regenerate. Both saved employees will be there from now on.
Unlock the first shortcut
Head for location where you found Hobbes. Jump down, eliminate the enemy and turn right. A fast opponent, located behind the container, will attack you. Block some strikes to finish him off, collect the items and move forward. An enemy with a cannon will soon be in front of you. Hide behind the container, on the left, as close to him as possible. Tag him and taunt him to fire at you. After the third shoot, charge and defeat him.
There is another enemy in front of you. On the other side of the stairs, on the right, a fast opponent will appear. Eliminate all hostile units on the upper floor and turn left. There, you will come across an incomplete fence that you can use to jump down. Move forward slowly. Eliminate the enemy with the cannon and focus your attention on the opponent, located under the platform you are currently standing on. Sometimes, he may run upstairs, which can be dangerous for you.
Before you move forward, you should unlock the first shortcut to the MedBay. Walk across the pipes presented in the screenshot . When you reach the end, a fast enemy will appear. Defend yourself and take the door , he just used to enter the room. Use the Exo-Lift, and when you reach the top, interact with the first door and break the lattice with your weapon to unlock the passage. You are close to the MedBay. Before you actually get back there, you should go down, eliminate the noisy opponent and collect the nearby item.
Reach the Recycling Zone
Get back to the exit point and turn right . Carefully search the half-pipe. There are some enemies but it should be possible to lure them out one by one. Furthermore, there is a module that will allow your companion drone to perform melee attacks.
Take the stairs presented in the screenshot . There is a woman on the mezzanine and you should speak with her. You can offer her a two-handed weapon if you have one. After a longer conversation, walk away and the woman will move to a different position. Keep in mind that the offered weapon should be good, and Staff of Creo Security seems like a perfect choice. She won't accept a poor quality item and her storyline will not progress. If you take the stairs down, you will reach the train station. Two Creo Security Guards will be there, so stay focused.
You need to reach the Recycling Zone. In order to get there, you will have to cross the bridge on the left. It's full of enemies and some powerful robots. You can also enter the room in front of you. Just ignore the machine and run up the stairs. Use the Exo-Lift at the top, to reach the upper level. You can explore it freely but the most important thing is the lattice in one of the passages. Destroy it to get to the Recycling Zone through the back entrance.
Recycling Zone and more shortcuts
Take the stairs down, jump down and take out the enemies. Head to the place where machines are working. There is no point in going down, as all the bridges are closed and you won't pass them. Instead, check the spot presented in the screenshot. There is an elevator that will take you to the upper level.
Defeat the enemy and use one of the rails to reach the other part of the level. Turn right. There, you will find two passages. Unlock the one on the left  to unlock another shortcut. Now, after you respawn, all you need to do is defeat the first opponent and turn left. Move forward and you will get back to this place.
Unlock the shortcut and proceed. Unlock the passage on your right . Eliminate two enemies that will block your way, and interact with a terminal by the window. This will activate the bridges and assign machines to additional tasks. Restore your medical supplies with the terminal on the right, and use the elevator. Exit the elevator, turn right and go straight.
You will come across another opponent that will attack you from a distance. There is also a technical machine in the room, so be careful when attacking your enemy. Kill or avoid the machine, and go upstairs. There you will unlock another shortcut that will take you to your current position.
Elevator and boss fight
Leave the stairs and move forward. On your right, there is an enemy behind the open door . On your left, there is a path  that you can use to continue you journey. By the entrance, on the left, there is a special weapon .
Go down and you will reach the place presented in the screenshot. There are three enemies here. You can lure the first one to a specific position  when patrolling the area. The second one is waiting behind the presented container , and the last one is by the terminal . Defeat them, look around, and overcharge the console to open the door.
Here, you will come across an area full of toxic waste. If you stand on piles of toxic waste, your hero will lose some health. Lure your enemies and reach the other part of the area. Take the stairs and defeat opponents that will block your way. This path will lead you directly to a shortcut to the MedBay. It will be extremely useful before you challenge the boss.
Defeat the enemies, go down and turn left. On the left, there is an elevator, and a circuit that can be overcharged. The elevator will take you next to the circuit you overcharged at the beginning of this stage (in order to activate the MedBay).
Unlock the shortcut, go down and turn left. Avoid or defeat your enemies, and head to the corridor on your left. Enter the large arena to begin the boss fight.
Tips concerning the boss fight can be found in the specific chapter of the game guide.
Defeat the boss and reach the Exo-Lift by the arena. Go left and use another crane. You will end up in a technical room. Collect the items and go to the Exo-Lift on the other side. Go down and proceed to the train station by going right . The large door  in front of you, is not available at the moment.
Enter the station and head for the train. You will reach your next location.
