Hunting beasts and takin' codes.

Pandora’s open world hides many secrets. Exploring the sandbox you’ll come across numerous side-quests, but it’s not always easy to work exactly what the game’s asking you to do. If you’ve come across Research Station Alpha, you might have stumbled upon the Feral Hunter quest which requires you to find various access codes. But where are you supposed to go and what are these codes for? Here we’ll explain how to complete the Feral Hunter quest in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.

The RDA station is found in Clouded Forest area (use our interactive map to locate it). When you arrive, locate the breakable vent on the south side of Research Station Alpha, which is located left along the wall that says A02, you’ll be able to work your way inside. This area is pretty linear, but you’ll need to destroy a fuse box to free up the current and open the hatch that’s blocking your path initially. Aim at it through the hole in the wall to do so, then use your SID tool to hack the channel of the circuit. Once you are through, there’s another here to get past (make sure you loot the ammo crate).

Now proceed down the new hallway you find yourself in, break the vent at the end (there is glowing fauna leading up to it), and drop down. Proceed through here until the floor breaks and you drop down into a lab room. You can get up to the level above and grab some ammo before fixing the shaft door (just interact with it) and heading out of the lab toward an accessway. Use the RDA tool to ascend the next level.

There are some more circuits to hack here using your SID. Once you have, the Ferals will suddenly awaken and pounce. Deal with them. You’ll then have initiated the Feral Hunter quest. Track the quest, and note that it references three Feral Hunters. Your first task is to inspect the corpse of the Feral Hunter you’ve just taken out, which triggers another circuit to crack.

After a short conversation with Anqa, the quest requires you to “find the purpose of the access codes.” Drop back down the lab area and tick off the “search the restricted lab area” requirement by proceeding through the Shaft using your SID.

After having done that, now you need to “Retrieve all three access codes.” Note that you already have one from the Feral Thanator you just killed. There are two more to find. The locations of these can vary since all the game is asking you to do is find Feral Hunters to take out. Therefore, you’ll want to take on any quest that features them.

We found our Bravo access code after taking on the Enemy of my Enemy quest. This tasks you with going after an RDA defector. During his dialog, he mentions a facility where they believed the Feral Thanator to be around 3km S to SW from where you find him.

The Charlie access code was found in the Great Plains area, but this might not be the same for you. What is recommended is to simply repeat the Severed Bonds quest. If you remember, this quest was activated the first time you took out a Feral Hunter, and it’s designed to be repeated. If you do that, you’ll typically get the last access code pretty quickly. From there, beating the Feral Hunter quest is straightforward since you’ll have ticked off the final requirement.

  8. Ascend with the RDA Tool: Use the tool to reach the next level outside the lab.
  9. Hack More Circuits with SID: Deal with emerging Ferals after hacking.
  10. Initiate the Feral Hunter Quest: Inspect the Feral Hunter corpse to continue.
  11. Talk to Anqa and Investigate: After a brief conversation, search the restricted lab area by dropping back down.
