Manning National Zoo is a main mission in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.
At the moment, this mission is only available in the Public Test Server, so it may change a little on release.
Here’s a walkthrough of Manning National Zoo in The Division 2.
How to start Manning National Zoo
Upon entering the Public Test Server (PTS), you should see this main mission in the map but it’s outside the border.
To start the mission, go to the helicopter at the White House. Talk to the pilot and you can travel there directly.
You should then reach the National Zoo.
The whole objective of this mission is to locate Emeline and eliminate her as the leader of the Outcast.
You should encounter some hostiles after reaching this area.
Secure the area and eliminate all of the Outcast hostiles.
Continue ahead and eliminate more of the hostiles.
Disable the security gates
You will then reach a dead end. Disable the security gates using the control panel inside the room.
Go through the opened gate and you’ll reach another open area.
Eliminate the hostiles.
Watch out for those higher ranked officers as well.
Locate transmission source
Your next objective is to locate the transmission source.
You need to go through this gate first.
Keep going and you’ll reach this entrance with tentacles.
Get inside the building and secure the area first.
Kill the higher ranked officers first, especially if he has a sledgehammer.
Once the area is secure, proceed to the next.
Keep going until you reach this door. Continue going out.
Find Access Point
Next, you’ll reach the outside area where there are more hostiles. Secure the area.
You have to find the access point. Go through this area shown below.
It’s actually at the right side of where you came from. The left side will lead you to a dead end.
Go through the gate and you’ll see this comms device.
Hostiles will emerge as usual. Kill them all.
Once the place is secure, go to the small gate where the access point is.
Interact with it.
Defend access point
Enemies will then come into the area. Secure the area and defend the access point.
After successfully defending the area, look for Emeline again. Head towards the bridge.
You then have to go through the Crocodile Pit.
Enter the pit
To enter the pit, look for this wooden gate.
Secure the area
Once inside the pit, secure the area and kill all of the reinforcements.
Watch out for the suicide bombers.
Get rid of the lieutenants as well.
Continue finding Emeline
After the area is secure, go through this pathway.
You will now reach a big open area of the zoo. You can walk around to look for chests and stuff.
There’ll even be monkeys for you to kill.
The place you’re supposed to go has this big ‘Entrance’ word on the building (image below).
You will enter a short tunnel and keep walking until you reach this place filled with plants.
Reach monorail control room
Your objective now is to get to the monorail control room, but you have to go through this garden.
There’ll be plenty of hostiles in this area.
Keep going until you see this door (image below).
You should now reach the control room. Activate the monorail.
Go downstairs to board the monorail.
Secure the area
Before you can do so, you need to secure the area.
Kill the lieutenants as well.
After securing the area, board the monorail.
You will be transported to the next area of the zoo.
You should now reach a rather dense bamboo forest. Take out the hostiles.
Go through this small door shown below.
This part will be filled with hostiles as well.
Eliminate all of them and keep going forward.
Walk until you reach this gate.
Your mission is back to locating Emeline. Keep killing the enemies and go forward.
You will eventually reach a set of stairs with a gate. Continue going ahead.
Secure the area
You should now reach a big open area with a monorail in the middle.
Watch out for the minigun on the monorail that attacks in intervals.
You can’t kill the person directly. You need to go around the area and plant a C4 bomb on the pillar under the monorail.
After getting the C4 from one of the lieutenants, plant the bomb under the monorail.
You should see this pillar here (image below). Plant the C4 and walk away.
After it explodes, the guy above will die and you have to get to the next area.
Secure the area
You will now reach the final part of this mission. It’s another big open area with a hostile using a minigun.
Once again, you can’t kill the person directly, as you need to use the C4.
This time, it’s tougher because there are more hostiles attacking you. At the same time, you need to avoid getting killed by the minigun.
Go from cover to cover to avoid getting shot.
You also have to plant the C4 on three different pillars.
This means there’ll be at least three waves of hostiles coming at you.
Every time you blow a pillar, you need to kill the reinforcements and get a C4 from another lieutenant that you need to kill.
Keep planting C4s until all three pillars are blown.
Defeat Emeline Shaw
After destroying the minigun above, you have to defeat Emeline Shaw, the leader of the Outcasts.
After she’s dead, secure the area by killing the remaining hostiles.
Next, enter the room in the screenshot below and investigate the Echo.
The mission completes here.
