Retrieve the Confidential Intel Walkthrough
- You pick up this quest by speaking with a Resistance Member in the City Ruins near the factory access point after completing the Assault main quest. The location of the plug-in chips will be added to your map and you will need to obtain all three of them.
- At each location, a group of Enhanced Machines awaits. Defeating all of them including the largest one will add the necessary plug-in chip to your inventory.
- At the second site, your Pod will comment that the chip you obtained is a YoRHa unit chip, and that there's no reason for other units to possess it.
- After you obtain the last chip, a message from Command will inform you that a missing YoRHa unit with classified information must be found as soon as possible. Go back to the Resistance Member to decide what to do.
- Once there, you have the option to give him the chips, or refuse. If you refuse twice, 2B will ask him if he knows anything about a missing YoRHa unit. The android denies knowledge.
- The only way to proceed with this quest is to give him the chips.
- If you give him the chips, rewards are received but the quest stays open on your log.
- Go to Desert Housing and find the quest marker. Here the Resistance Member will introduce you to YorHa S-Type, a refurbished model he fixed with the chips you gave him.
- After this, when you go back to the Resistance Camp, an Inbox message from the Commander ends the quest.
