Now that you're an official part of the Crimson Fleet, you're going on your first treasure-hunting mission, and it's an important one. Delgado wants you and the other new recruit to prove yourselves by helping him hunt for clues on Kryx's Legacy down at The Lock. In the middle of the quest, Mathis offers you a choice to betray Delgado. Let's review all the outcomes and choices in the Crimson Fleet Quest, Echoes of the Past.

Echoes of the Past Walkthrough

Land Near The Lock

Head down to The Lock landing spot on Suvorov in the Kryx Star System. Note that this planet is extremely cold, and we've seen some bugs with the weather effect not going away if you don't wear a good spacesuit with high environmental protection.

Proceed to The Lock

Walk ahead through the snowy corridor to the entrance of The Lock facility. On the way, you'll be ambushed by the hostile local wildlife, Gryllobas. These small scorpion-like creatures are swift and can swarm you quickly. The Exterminator weapon mod and the AntiXeno spacesuit from Hostile Intelligence will be handy here.

Speak with Mathis

You and Mathis will walk into a room further ahead and get separated due to the collapse of an ice ceiling. Mathis will suggest you betray Delgado and steal Kryx's Legacy for yourself.

Use the Shuttle to Exit The Lock
