Inspired by historic, player-driven events on the icy moon of Yela, Jumptown 2.0 is about to kick off once again. Read on for info about the origins of Jumptown and how and when you can participate.
The Jumptown drug lab has seen many a battle. So many in fact, that the proprietors decided to fortify the building considerably. Featuring new cover options, hiding spots, and roof emplacements, there are plenty of ways to infiltrate the lab and seize its bounty.
The smugglers of Stanton are getting wiser, rotating the locations of their automated drug-production operations. Jumptown is but one of these facilities, so keep an eye on your mission manager for the up-to-date locations.
SCU containers are bulky and conspicuous, word around the system is the local scum have started to transport their contraband in far smaller parcels. Be sure to bring a Multi-Tool with a tractor-beam attachment.
Open the Mission Manager in your mobiGlas and navigate to the Priority category, either under the General tab for the lawful path or Personal for unlawful. This will give you both the coordinates of the drug lab and where to sell the packages.
The drug lab will be marked on your HUD and the Starmap. It may be in Crusader, microTech, or ArcCorp space. If you're on the lawful path, you'll be taking the drugs to the corresponding LEO stations (Port Olisar, Port Tressler, and Baijini Point, respectively), which will also be marked on your HUD. If on the unlawful path, you'll be traveling to Grim HEX for your payout.
Once you arrive at the lab, your goal is to find the drug spawner inside (pictured here). This device will pump out one box of contraband every 30 seconds. This timer doesn't start until you grab the previous box, so you'll have to hold your position against anyone else looking for the same payday if you want to maximize your earnings.
