On this page of our guide to Wasteland 3 you can find a detailed walkthrough of the Cornered Rats main mission. The following description will guide you through this task.
Talk to Sheriff Daisy in Colorado Springs
Eliminate the Dorseys in the Gardens of the Gods
Go back to Sheriff Daisy
This missions is activated automatically after completing the Home Away From Home mission. Head to Colorado Springs Downtown - you'll automatically find yourself in The Spinal Square. There is a Marshall's office behind the pits standing there, where you have to head to.
Lucia Wesson stands right at the entrance. Talk to her and she will ask you for help. Then head to Sheriff Daisy and she will order you to eliminate the Dorseys in the Gardens of the Gods. Lucia has the exact same objective, so she can join the team.
The entrance to the Garden of the Gods is located on Market Square in the northern part of Downtown. To get inside, talk to Lupinski.
After reaching the spot follow the only available path. You will come across a group of Dorseys who are shooting a man on a hill. If you have 4 skill points invested in Weird Science or Hard Ass, then you can avoid fighting them. If you don't have those abilities, then attack them right away. During the battle, often use your shields and eliminate melee enemies first. Then take care of the others.
As you move on you'll come across a locked gate. If you have 2 points of Mechanics, you can open it to loot items stored behind it. As you move on, you'll encounter another group of opponents. You can attack your enemies directly from here. Then you have to hide team members behind the covers right away. The best tactic is to stay in place - then your opponents will move towards you and expose themselves to your attacks. Withdraw only if the character is partially surrounded by opponents.
The second option is to use a small passageway on the left. It will lead you to a hill from which you can get a better control over the battlefield. There's also a special lens that can be programmed to help you in the battle. However, in order to get there, you must first defeat the dire wolves that are located in the area.
After the battle head to the great pit with corpses and examine the area. Then head down by using the only path available, where you will encounter a group of people. A conversation will be automatically triggered. You will have to decide about their fate.
Then return to Downtown to report to Sheriff Daisy. You'll find her in exactly the same place as last time. However, before that happens, you will have a conversation with Lucia during which you have to decide whether she should permanently join your team.
