Old Sawmill NERO Checkpoint is one of the checkpoints you need to restore power to.
Your task is to refuel the generator and restore the power to the NERO building.
Here’s a walkthrough of Old Sawmill NERO Checkpoint in Days Gone.
Get to the old sawmill
To begin the mission, get to the sawmill southeast of Lost Lake, as shown in the map.
Refuel the generator
You should be able to find the fuel can in front of the NERO building.
The generator, however, is on the other side of the building. You need to go from the back of the building.
Refuel it until it’s 100% but don’t activate it yet.
Disable the loudspeakers
If you wish to avoid the biggest horde (or one of the biggest) in this game, disable the loudspeakers first.
You will find a couple of them on the NERO buildings.
There should be four or five speakers on top of the NERO buildings at the corners.
Once you’re done disabling those, you need to be disable the speakers on the poles as well.
I made a mistake of not noticing one of them, and it attracted the horde.
One loudspeaker is more obvious, as it’s in the middle of the NERO site.
The other is hidden, and it’s actually within the trees (image below). Shoot them to destroy them.
Start the generator
After disabling the speakers, start the generator.
Get the injector
Go inside the NERO building and find the injector. You can permanently increase any of the three stats.
The mission completes here. You’ll get 1,500 XP.
