Warframe: Nightwave Guide | Alad V’S Mad Lab

Plundering Alad V’s secret Mad Lab is one of the several Nightwave challenges that you can complete in Warframe. Completing this mission will grant a number of rewards.




The Mad Lab challenge involves you having to plunder one of the secret laboratories owned by Alad V in Jupiter. This lab will contain the Amalgams who are an experimental enemy that’s been created by Alad V. In this guide, I’ll show you how you can successfully plunder the lab and complete the mission.

Nightwave Guide | Alad V’S Mad Lab in Warframe

To start, you want to do the challenge on an easier difficulty. For this one, we’ll be picking a level 16-18 Capture mission by opening your Navigator, heading to Jupiter, and then clicking on the Ananke node. After finding the mission, load into it and keep on repeating until you reach the starting area.

You will then find a huge platform as well as a walkway upward. Meanwhile, there will be a main megastructure to the left. This is also where you can find the secret lab, so the best way is to restart the mission until you reach this tileset.

Once you have successfully loaded this tileset, make your way through the door then look for an item called Access Controller to the right of the huge pillars. Simply destroy it in order to start the puzzle which will let you access the secret lab.

Opening the Door to the Secret Lab

Before you destroy the Access Controller, you should first look for the door to the secret lab. You will find a small grate in the wall right below the Access Controller. Break it then drop down until you reach a tunnel. Turn right to find a door at the very end with three symbols on it.

You have to take note of the order of the symbols as they will correspond to the switches which you should also activate in exact order to open the door. You can find the three switches in the following locations:

  • The first one is down the corridor which is not far from the door on the right wall.
  • The second one is on a door directly above the broken grate. Simply walk down the corridor to find the switch to the right.
  • Go back to where the Access Controller is, and you’ll find a room across it with another door. You can find the third switch to the left near the end of the corridor.

After taking note of all the locations for the three switches as well as the exact order of the symbols, it’s now time to destroy the Access Controller. Make your way to the first switch and activate it, then go to the second and third one respectively.

You only have 20 seconds to reach the two symbols, so make sure you know where exactly they are located.

As soon as you activated the third symbol, the door will then open. Inside, you’ll find some loots as well as a purple container containing a Captura scene. You will also find another locked door that you can open by switching to Operator mode and hitting it with your Amp.

Behind that door is Alad V’s secret lab with enemies inside of it. You can find yet another purple container inside. After dealing with the enemies, simply loot everything you can, complete your mission, then extract in order to complete the Mad Lab challenge.

SWTOR G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3

How far will your reputation take you?

Star Wars: The Old Republic is BioWare MMORPG based on the acclaimed Star Wars universe. As Galactic Season 3 kicked in, so did new challenges. Today, we’re talking about G.A.M.E., a new reputation system introduced along with this new season.

G.A.M.E. Reputation Guide for Galactic Season 3 – SWTOR

In SWTOR, Galactic Seasons are long seasonal events that grant limited-time rewards upon the completion of daily and weekly challenges dubbed Priority Objectives. Subscribers earn extra rewards, but everyone can participate.

Season 3, titled Luck of the Draw, brought with it the Gambling Authority and Management Entity, popularised by the acronym G.A.M.E. Basically, it’s a new form to track your reputation. But it comes with a few differences.

Unlike the other reputation tracks, G.A.M.E. is tied into Season 3. Another difference is that you won’t be able to see the reputation track for G.A.M.E. until you earn 1 reputation point with the faction.

First of all, you’ll need to unlock the first level of the Season 3 track. This will allow you to claim the PH4-LNX Protocol Lockbox and, with it, activate the new companion, PH4-LNX (Fey, as she likes to be called).

As you play through Season 3, you might notice that some quests and enemy drops give a new type of currency known as the G.A.M.E. Analysis Module.

When Fey is on your ship, you can take those Modules to her and convert them into G.A.M.E. reputation. Each Module is worth 25 Reputation Points (37 if you’re a Subscriber).

Note that you can only hold up to 200 Analysis Modules and only earn up to 200 per week. Additionally, you can only earn 5.000 Reputation Points per week, no matter how many boosts you have.

If you’re wondering about the math of it all, you’ll need 70.000 Reputation Points to reach max reputation, which accounts for 2.800 Modules without any boost. Good luck!

(And I’m sorry to report there are no ways to farm the Modules. Having Fey as your companion, however, increases the chance of enemies dropping more of the item. You can also trade 500 Jawa Junk (purple) for Jawa Intel with Brrazz in Cartel Bazaar.)

There are two bugs worth mentioning. One, be careful with skipping Fey’s dialogue since it might cause the Reputation Points to not enter your inventory.

Second, if you’re in a group, you might be unable to talk to Fey at all. To correct that, you’ll need to leave the group, turn in your Modules, and then re-join the group.

Now, for the big question: what are the rewards?

You can earn three legacy titles associated with G.A.M.E.: G.A.M.E. Representative, Mid-level Management, and Deputy Director of G.A.M.E.

Aside from that, the G.A.M.E. reputation track is actually more about helping you to earn rewards on the Season Tracker faster, so don’t expect unique rewards here.

Either way, I hope you enjoy Season 3 of Star Wars: The Old Republic!
