"Hey man. You went college prep, I took shop classes. So uh, who's the dummy now?"
— Zeke, regarding his engineering knowledge.

Having rescued Kuo from the Militia, Cole decides to restore the power in Ascension Parish. Arriving just outside the powered down area he finds a transformer, receiving a called from Zeke Cole learns that it has been isolated from the rest by the Militia.

Grabbing the metal cage that surrounds the transformer, Cole fires a Tesla Missile, guiding it through the air to create a connection to the first transformer in Ascension Parish. As he enters the powered down area to protect the transformer, Zeke warns him that the Militia will try to shut it down. Once Cole reaches the transformer, he (briefly) has an unlimited electric source and uses it to his advantage whilst fending off Militia members.

A Telsa Missile.

Once the transformer is fully charged Cole fires another Tesla Missile to the next transformer in the area and makes his way to the location. While running over there, Zeke gives him an update on Kuo's condition and mentions it reminds him of when he and Trish took care of Cole after the blast in Empire City, but Cole ends the conversation saying that Trish saving him got her killed.
Just like last time, Cole gets unlimited energy from the generator while he guards it from the Militia. As soon as it is fully charged, Cole fires one last Tesla Missile at the third and final generator. Cole then contacts Zeke asking if its possible Kuo has gained superpowers of her own, much like how he got powers after the blast. The latter says maybe and apologizes for mentioning Trish out of the blue. Cole says it fine and that he lives with his mistakes. After defending the final transformer in Ascension Parish, the power is fully restored in the area.


  • While standing near the power generator, Cole will temporarily have unlimited power.
  • This is the first mission where Cole used the Tesla Missile.
  • Cole describes the effect of entering a powered down area as "feeling thirsty".
  • While traversing through Ascension Parish, Cole will whisper while talking to Zeke, pertaining to him trying to stealth his way through the district. However he will continue to whisper even if he is seen or in a firefight.
  • This mission is the first time Trish is mentioned in-story, accidentally named by Zeke, which causes Cole to become uncomfortable, showing he's still in-mourning.
  • This is the first mission in which players can attain Hero status, without grinding.
