It’s time to save scientists from the plant pods in the AG Center.
Wasteland 2 guide: AG Center
At this point in your adventure you’ll need to decide between the AG Center or Highpool.
Once you’ve left the Radio Tower, go to the Oasis and refill your canteens. Make this a habit throughout the game – if you come across an Oasis, fill up.
On your way to the AG Center you’ll get a message telling you Highpool is under attack but give it another minute and you’ll also hear from AG Center – they need your help too. We recommend going to the AG Center first because it’s not surrounded by the large pools of radiation.
When you arrive the Dispatcher will suggest you deal with the emergency before attaching the Repeater Unit to the radio tower. Once you have control of your party again, go past the body that exploded and as Angela makes some comments move you party into combat positions. Attack the wildlife, then continue north. You can see the door to the AG Center but it’s blocked by vines. Destroy them and interact with the intercom to access the Central Complex.
Talk with Kathy Lawson as you enter the Central Complex and she’ll fill you in on the emergency. Ask her where the signal dish can be found and she becomes upset, so use the Kiss Ass skill and she’ll calm down and tell you what you need to know. At this point she’ll ask you to check the greenhouse to see if there are any survivors, so you’ll have to speak with Rose to get some codes to unlock the greenhouse.
Side Quest: Save the Researchers
Go through the West airlock to the door on the southern side of the hallway. Inside you’ll find Rose. Chat with her and she gives you the codes to the greenhouse so you can save any survivors. She asks to tag along and an extra pair of hands seems like a good idea.
Carry on West and you’ll come into contact with Rachel. Look out, because she turns into a pod lady and you’ll have to kill her. Once Rachel is plant food get Rose to unlock the airlock in the north by clicking on it.
All you need do here is kill all the enemies to set the researchers free. Make sure you’re combat-ready and kick some ass. Once saved, the researchers go to the main lobby. While you’re here dig up the mounds of dirt and destroy the pods for some Pod Fragments. Now go back out.
From the lobby go past the northern corridor towards the east corridor. The door to the south needs breaking open, destroy the pod and grab another Pod Fragment. Inside this room there’s also a box with some items, so take them with you. Go down the path until you come across another airlock and let Rose open it for you.
Once inside this greenhouse go to the center of the room and you’ll meet Julio who is being attacked by large rabbits. Fight the rabbits (I know!) and then talk to Julio. Tell him to hide once you’ve had a good chat with him, and he’ll leg it to the kitchen. Loot the rabbits’ bodies and grab the chest in the northeast corner of the room. Remember this room for later because you’ll need to come back to get the satellite running.
Side Quest: Collect 10 Pod Fragments
If you’ve been infected by the pods then you have to complete this mission. Once you’ve collected 10 Pod Fragments from destroyed pods take them over to Kathy Lawson and she’ll get busy with a cure. If you’re not sure who she is, she’s the scientist standing at the computers in the entrance of the Central Complex.
