  • Enter the Koschei Complex with a Geiger Counter.
  • Find the 4 Nuclear Fuel Rods in the flooded Barracks.
  • Extract the 4 Nuclear Fuel Rods in one deployment.

How to enter the Koschei Complex with a Geiger Counter

Before getting inside the Koschei Complex, you have to acquire a Geiger Counter. This equipment detects radiation and can lead you to the Nuclear Fuel Rods. To get a Geiger Counter, start a Secure Nuclear Material contract and grab the item from the toolbox marked on your map.

Once you have a Geiger Counter in your inventory, deploy into the Koschei Complex via the Taraq Village Bridge entrance. This entry point will lead you to the Barracks section of the bunker from where you'll have to follow the arrow markings to reach the other side, i.e., the Chemical Plant.

Where to find the 4 Nuclear Fuel Rods in the flooded Barracks

As you enter the first flooded section of the Barracks, use your Geiger Counter tactical equipment to scan for the Nuclear Fuel Rods. The readings on the device go up as you get closer to the rod. The first rod that I found was in the room to the right, but I've also noticed it spawn in the left room. After crossing the first flooded area, you'll reach the middle section with three guards and C4 laser traps. Kill the bots and crawl under the lasers to reach the Nuclear Fuel Rod placed on wooden crates.

Now, in the west corner of the same area, you'll find a hole in the wall blocked by a wooden board. Throw a Semtex or some other explosive to blow it up and enter through the crack. In this secret flooded section of the Barracks, I found three Nuclear Fuel Rods. However, to go deep inside this section and come back alive, you'll need a Rebreather, which you can bring in from Al Mazrah.

In case you don't have a Rebreather, you can always find the remaining two Nuclear Fuel Rods in the second flooded section. Drop down the opening after crossing the laser traps and start searching for the items inside the rooms. This time, there are no air pockets in the rooms so you'll have to come back to the corridor repeatedly to catch your breath and prevent yourself from drowning.

Once you have four Nuclear Fuel Rods required for the Irradiated Waters mission, you can just extract them from the Chemical Plant or L2 Restricted Zone elevators. And remember, if you're having trouble locating the Nuclear Fuel Rods, you can always rely on the Geiger Counter to lead you to them.
