Detailed walkthrough

Audio tapes

The first audio tape, Opera Singer, can be found in Higgs Village, in House # 108. It is resting on the night stand in the master bedroom upstairs.

The second audio tape, Giant Tarantula, can be found in Higgs Village, in House #00. It is in the leftmost room upstairs, on an empty terminal.

The third audio tape, Gabriel's Bark, can be found at the Residential test facility, located during (or after) the player completed the Sonic Emitter Upgrade quest. The location of Gabe's Bark is marked on your map once the residential cyberdog guard test is activated. Select the test, and avoid or kill Gabe. Once he is taken care of, look for the tape in one of Gabe's dig spots. The exact dig spot is randomly selected.

The fourth audio tape, Robo-scorpion, can be found in the Forbidden Zone. It is found when the player defeats Mobius' robo-scorpion, on a table at the far end of the room, on the upper-level balcony.

Seed packages

One pack of dried seeds can be found at the X-22 botanical garden. It is on the second level of the building, guarded by a few spore carriers, spore plants, and Patient Zero, a unique spore carrier.

Another pack of dried seeds sits on a fountain northeast of Signal Hills transmitter. It is guarded by a few spore plants, including the unique spore plant Dionaea Muscipula.

A third seed pack can be found north of the second "noted" pack at Signal Hills transmitter, across the pipe, near a spore plant.

Once everything is collected, return to The Sink and install the upgrades into the biological research station and Blind Diode Jefferson.
