Alongside the newly added map to the online first-person shooter multiplayer game The Cycle Frontier, Tharis Island, are tons of new quests and missions for the player to take on either with friends or solo. One of the first quests you’d encounter on this new update is the Race to the Bottom, which is divided into three parts. Taking this quest on as soon as you can give you the chance to familiarize the new map and hopefully obtain great loot along the way.
In this guide, we will be showing you how to complete the Race to the Bottom quest in The Cycle Frontier. Read on, and let’s get this done!
Race to the Bottom – The Cycle Frontier
Race to the Bottom Part 1: Colonist Group Location
The mission you have been tasked with to finish the first part of Race to the Bottom is to find the three colonist groups across various destinations: namely the Sparkling Pool Cave, Korolev Quarry, and Cave of Stars.
Let’s take on the Sparkling Pool Cave first. Head to this part of the map as shown in the image above.
There you should see a large glowing pool, hence the name. Stand in the center part of it.
Observe your surroundings and look for an elevated cave opening. The area could get a bit dark so look closely around you.
Climb the cave opening and there you should see what you are looking for. Again, it is dark in there.
Next is the Korolev Quarry. See the image above where you should be to start this part of the quest.
You should find yourself surrounded by empty containers facing the quarry itself.
Go to your right. Pay close attention to the fence as you will be going inside there in a bit.
Beside the huge boulder is a doorway that lets you enter the fenced section of the area. Head over there and up the stairs.
There you should see a table with dead people. There you will find what you are looking for.
Now to complete this part of the quest, head over to the Cave of Stars. This one is a bit hidden and is more challenging to find than the first two.
Exploring the dark cave, you should see a base of some kind with several hazardous crates lying about. See the image above.
Explore the sides of the base and you should see a small opening where you’d find dead bodies lying on a green sheet. It is surrounded by a white cage. There you will find what you are looking for, completing this part of the quest.
Race to the Bottom Part 2: Atrium Location
This part of the quest is much more straightforward than the previous one as it can be done in one location only. Plus, you get to discover a new area!
To begin the quest, head over to the Korolev Core Outpost as seen on the map. There you’d find the Atrium Area.
Inside, you will encounter several new creatures that you need to hunt down as part of the quest. This also gives you the chance to fully explore the new area and maybe find the colonist item by chance.
In case you want to find the colonist item directly, go to the entrance of the Atrium once again. Simply face right and there you should see a skeleton of a dead person. Beside him is a broken case. You’d find the item you are looking for there.
Race to the Bottom Part 3: Osiris Holo Map Location
For this part of the quest, you have to get access to the Osiris Research Center.
See the image above to know precisely where you should be on the map.
First thing you have to do after going there is to finish the Osiris Research Center puzzle. Take note that you won’t be able to finish the Race to the Bottom Part 3 if you don’t do this first. Follow our guide to finishing the Osiris Research Center puzzle.
Say that you already finished the puzzle and now have access to the locked room. Atop the table is the Holo Map needed for the Race to the Bottom quest. Take it.
Now with the Holo Map at hand, go to the Pinnacle Labs as seen in the image above.
There you should see a yellow container beside a rock wall. Interact with it and it will automatically open your backpack and the storage container.
Simply deposit the Holo Map to the container to finish the quest.
