The search for KuoEdit


Cole poking at Zeke's perverted nature.

Still mourning the loss of Wolfe, Cole decides to pay a visit to Zeke after getting a call from him. Upon arrival, Zeke tells him he heard about a girl, whom he believes to be Kuo, evade the Militia into the swamps. Cole thanks Zeke and heads for the outskirts of town. After looking into a number of cabins, and fighting groups of Militia and Corrupted, a Conduit revealed to be an African American woman named Nix appears. Thinking Cole's another Militia member, she tries to attack him at first until Cole holds up an electric hand. Surpised that "The Demon" is in New Marais, Nix exclaims she's a huge fan of Cole and offers him a Blast Core. In exchange, all he has to do is help her "break a few crackers".[1]

Setting fire to the MilitiaEdit

Desperate Times1

Putting oil on the banners.

Knowing that he has no other choice, Cole follows Nix and she leads him to Militia rally. From the rooftops, the duo work together fighting the Militia and dumping barrels of oil on the nearby Militia banners. Once all the banners have been drenched in oil, Nix tells Cole to spark the banners. He complies and before he knows it, the Militia rally is set ablaze. They then take out the remaining Militia. Afterwards, Nix is cloud nine and praises Cole for how awesome he was. Keeping true to her word, she hands him the Blast Core and asks Cole if she'll see him again. he replies by telling Nix to give him a call and that the two of them have something on common. Zeke then contacts Cole and warns him that running around with Nix might be a bad idea, due to her destructive behavior.[1]


  • This marks the on-screen debut of Nix as she was previously heard in a dead drop
  • There is a small color glitch where in the last few seconds of the mission, Cole's lighting will turn red-orange as even if he has Good Karma.
    • This can be explained as what Cole's doing could pass for an evil deed.
    • Another explanation is Cole made his lightning turn red-orange to show he was similar to Nix.
  • At the beginning of the mission, Cole's voice will be raspy up until his meeting with Nix, most likely due to the damage he took from the mission before.
