Introductions[]

New Contact(s)[]

I'd love for you to meet Polly Cooper. She's a coordinator for the Civil Air Patrol, and she knows a lot about the Sky Raiders and the Lost. Polly has access to Training Enhancements.

Miss Cooper is very skilled at her job and should prove to be a valuable asset to you.

Information[]

Police Liaison

Detective Davids and his partner Hutchinson are assigned to the mean streets of Independence Port. Together, they make the grooviest crime-fighting duo of the decade.

Initial Contact[]

Let me tell it like it is: All us cops are glad to have help from the city's heroes, and we want to make it easier for you. Take these frequencies for the local police radio bands, and keep your ears open. And hey, if you really work it out there, we'll be sure to call you when something big goes down.

Now that you've gotten a Police Radio, you can start scanning Police chatter to hear about the crimes as they're committed in your current zone. You can then act on a report by selecting it from the Police Radio, listed under your Contacts.

Missions[]

Protect Steel Canyon bank[]

Briefing

This is bad. Arachnos is planning an attack on Steel Canyon. We think their main objective is the bank, but they've brought a villain with them, and they're out to cause as much destruction as possible. If you can help, then please go to Steel Canyon to protect the bank and stop the attack! We got the alarm signal from the bank, so make haste and get over to the bank. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating villains, however you can lose time if they destroy too much of the city.

It gets worse. The Family and the Tsoo in Steel Canyon are aware of the heist, and both groups are looking at this as a way to gain ground against the other, and they won't care who gets hurt. The more of them you stop, the better off the city will be.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Objective(s)

Steel Canyon is in chaos! Arachnos troops are causing mayhem, members of the Family are standing around key locations acting suspicious, and the Tsoo are taking advantage of the anarchy in the streets.

Protect Independence Port bank[]

Briefing

We've just learned that a Villain from the Rogue Isles is about to attack Independence Port in a mission of mayhem and bank robbery, aided by members of the Family. The City needs her defenders to get over to Independence Port and protect the city and the bankfrom those villains! We have seen a live videofeed of the bank, and it is under attack as we speak, so you should head over there quick. You probably have about 5 minutes or less before they make their escape.

This is a Safeguard mission. Once you prevent the heist, you will have 15 minutes to explore the area and potentially earn extra rewards before the P.P.D. lock down the area. You can earn extra time by defeating villains, however you can lose time if they destroy too much of the city.

We know that the villain is working with the Family for this mission, but we've also learned that the Council is planning to take to the streets themselves to take advantage of the situation. While your main objective is going to be the villain and the members of the Family, stopping any bad guys will be the less of a burden for the P.P.D. reinforcements.

Periodically, vandals will arrive to destroy parts of the city. You will see a message when they arrive, and their locations will be displayed in your minimap.

Mission Objective(s)

You've reached Independence Port just as the attack began. Go find the members of the Family that are causing the mayhem and trying to rob the bank. Teach them a lesson they won't forget!
