A Hidden Weakness is the thirtieth chapter in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In the hopes of finding a way to get into Mercer’s impenetrable fortress to stop the massive drill from destroying Pandora, the Resistance make a desperate move to learn more about the RDA’s plans. Read ahead as we go through the events of A Hidden Weakness in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and share some tips on how to complete the chapter.
All the clans’ leaders have congregated at the command center to talk about their plan on attacking Mercer’s base. However, the base is heavily defended and engaging it head on will be impossible. Luckily, Priya found a weak link through the base’s sonar defense systems which could be hacked and shut down.
Find the RDA’s sensor in the sky above the southeast canyon of The Cut
Head over to the location southeast of The Cut to find the sensor. You’ll receive a call from Alex telling you how you can help them hack the sensor.
Destroy the sensor’s protective cap
Get on top of the sensor platform and shoot at the protective cap on top of the sensor itself. Alex will then be able to start hacking into it.
Stay in range of the sensor device
After hacking the sensor, don’t fly off yet as you will need to give Alex some time to complete his hacking. Once he’s done, you can proceed to the next balloon.
Go to the next sensor in the sky / Destroy the sensor’s protective cap / Stay in range of the sensor device
Same as before, fly over to the next balloon and shoot the protective cap off of the sensor. This time, while waiting for Alex, RDA choppers will engage with you. Fight them off until the hacking is complete.
Go to the last sensors near the cliffside antenna, northwest of the Shadow Wood / Destroy the protective cap on both sensors / Stay in range of the sensor device
The third balloon will be harder as it is close to a radio tower that is stationed by soldiers with anti-air missiles. Take down the soldiers first to make the hacking easier. Then, destroy the caps and wait around the sensors until Alex is done.
Alex then reports that he has been kicked out of the system by someone. You will need to head into the control tower and deal with whoever is messing with the system.
Fly to the Aerial Defense Station above the southeast canyon in The Cut
Fly northwest of your location to reach the Aerial Defense Station. Once you spot the station, land somewhere safe near its perimeter to get a better infiltration spot and to avoid getting spotted right away. Get close to the perimeter walls near the east side and look for a vent opening that you can go through.
Destroy the locks to access the RDA building
After getting into the first wall perimeter, you will need to access the next gate which is currently locked. Use your SID to locate the cables that link it to its locks which are located under the maintenance trenches.
Look for the open grates on the ground, but before jumping down, shut off the electricity nodes to make the water safe. Then, go inside the trench while following the cable, find the locks and destroy them.
Hack into the main building
Head back up to the gate and hack into the panel to get inside the building. Once you’re in, get through the vent on the left.
Find the control room
You will arrive at the AMP hangar that is full of soldiers. The path to the control room is on the opposite side of the hangar through another vent. On the other side of the vent is a storage room to stock up on ammo and materials.
Look for the huge yellow pipe and jump on it, then continue jumping and climbing up the platforms on the side of the walls.
Once you’re at the top, jump towards the center catwalks to reach another vent. On the other side of the vent is a container that has the Hunter Headband.
Look for a red panel on the northern side and break it to open a hatch to a vent. Turn to the left and head towards the opening to reach the control room.
You will be met by Teylan who has decided to work with Mercer in the hopes that no one else gets hurt. You then try to reason with Teylan who appears to be confused.
Harding then comes in with her gun pointed at you. Teylan then lunges at you, but before they leave, he leaves you with a data drive.
The window shields then open up, revealing choppers aiming their guns at your direction. Make your way out of the control room immediately and fly to your next destination.
Help the Resistance hackers hiding at Eywa’s Regard southeast of The Cut
Head towards southwest of your current location to get to the Resistance members who are also under attack.
Defeat the RDA searching for the Resistance
Several AMPs are searching the location for the Resistance hacker; defeat all of them.
Talk to Alex and Anqa in the cave
Once the Amps have been dealt with, head towards the cave behind the waterfall to meet up with Alex and Anqa. They weren’t able to get anything out of the hack, but you tell them about the data drive that you got from Teylan for them to look into.
Wait by the campfire while Priya analyzes the data from Teylan
Head to the campfire to pass the time. Alternatively, you can take this moment to do your side quests, clear up some RDA sites, or upgrade your gear.
After resting, you will get a call from Priya telling you that Ri’nela is looking into the contents of the drive and that you should see it for yourself.
The chapter then concludes, rewarding you with some Clan Favor.
