Sewer Hideout


This area is unlocked during the Docks Quest: after you finish it, it is no longer available. It is accessible from the Dockside Sewers (before quest).

This counts as underground, indoors.

The area is roughly divided into 6 sub-zones. As you kill guards or pass choice encounters, you advance deeper into the camp. Once you reach the last zone, you can take on the gang boss. Passing through the Security Hole or Deeper into the Camp will advance you one zone. It is also possible to get to the gang boss by avoiding the security checkpoints and killing 30 guards.

Some encounters only show up in certain areas. (Table is not very complete yet.)


  1. Near sewers
  2. Faint lights
  3. Edge of buildings
  4. Near water
  5. At water's edge
  6. Middle of the camp

Resting here heals a base 15 hit points and gives this message:

You find a corner away from the Fangs' lights and collapse for a while.

1 blueganger.jpg You come face to face with a younger Fang carrying a small package. He desperately goes for his gun, like its simple presence will magically solve this situation.
2 bluegangerthug.jpg The Fangs' network of guards is fairly lax towards the edge of their base. When you hear the gun cocking behind you, you suspect they might have lulled you into a false sense of security.
3 bluegangerthug.jpgblueganger.jpg As you make your way through the hideout, you're confronted by two gangers. Neither seems terribly interested in talking things out.
4 bluegangerthug.jpgbluegangerthug.jpg As you make your way through the hideout, you're confronted by two massive gangers. Neither seems terribly interested in talking things out.
5 bluegangerthug.jpgbluegangerthug.jpg You hear a shout behind you, following by a quick burst of gunfire. Whether it was a warning shot or just poorly aimed, the Fang guards behind you show no signs of recognizing you or being interested in introductions. Perhaps if you had killed other fang members despite entering peacefully? Or perhaps only if you enter using the cracked baseball bat method instead of the Carlos method?
6 blueganger.jpgblueganger.jpg Slipping deeper into the Fangs' hideout, you all but run headfirst into two guards. Dammit.
7 Eclipse.jpg seaserpent.jpg A dark lake stretches out beyond the Fangs' primitive lighting. From the reek of dead fish and the slightly subtler scent of toxic waste, you'd guess it connects to Lake Metroplex on the surface.

As you contemplate the darkness, your world surges. The waters part to reveal a massive serpent, bellowing a wordless challenge and lunging towards you.
If you successfully run away:
The massive serpent howls with terrible hunger.
Triggers new interaction in Trio of Guards.
8 Eclipse.jpg MushroomDude.jpg A walking mushroom, straight from a thousand drug-induced hallucinations, charges towards you out of the shadows. For a moment, it's easy to discount it, but as it approaches you can hear the whistling of its jagged spear and catch the acrid scent of its spores. Only if you have earned the Fangs' trust by shaking down dockhands for them?
