Here you’ll have an opportunity to upgrade your equipment with the two conveniently placed workbenches, so you’ll want to try and get some armor pieces that have a high thermal stat as this will help you combat the harsh cold temperatures. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure you’re not over encumbered, because you’re going to need to do a lot of running.
When you get outside, you’ll need to reach the beacon which is located directly opposite the elevator. However, between you and the beacon is lots of Maulers, so you’ll want to run past them unless they are directly in your path, but be careful as they can shoot you with projectiles that stun you. As you’re closing the gap, pay close attention to your health and be sure to regularly heal up to avoid dying and having to start again. Once you’ve successfully interacted with the beacon, return to Mei and speak with her and she’ll get to work setting up your meeting.
