Highpool is under attack from the Wreckers and it resembles a frontline, rather than a calm city. You will have to cut through the waves of gang members, systematically, deeper into the location, up until you reach the dam. In the city, there are many fences and weak walls, which you can destroy to find shortcuts and sneak up to the opponent. In combat, it is also a good idea to use the surroundings. For example, soon after the start, you reach a mortar that bombards the town. If you have an expert in explosives, you can use the Demolition Man skill on it, to alter the trajectory and fire at the Wreckers. You can also fire at the mortar from afar, which will blow it up and kill the nearby enemies. The city also abounds in traps so, it is a good idea to keep your perception and the defusing party member ready.

You access the main part of the city on the crane - Highpool - the city | Highpool - locations - Highpool - locations - Wasteland 2 Game Guide & Walkthrough

The attacking gang turns out not to be the only problem. The Irrigation system has been destroyed and, only after you go down to the underground part and fix it, the city will be completely safe. Only then will you be able to mount the Repeater Unit. To learn more, see the next chapter.

After you have dealt with both issues (the Wreckers and the irrigation system) Highpool will be safe again. The townsmen will then have to elect a new mayor. If you complete side quests and help the men (e.g. you go to destroy the Wreckers' base once and for all), Kate Preston will win the elections the town will be back under the Desert Rangers' jurisdiction. If you are lame at helping them, or you ignore helping them at all, the town will be seized by the Red Skorpions. In the city center, there also is shopkeeper Harold (he does not want to trade with you, if you fix the pump at that room), and a medic dr. Scott Warner, who heals your entire party for free, if you need it (he stops if you attempt to rob his locker).
