Once in the sewer Cole receives a call from Moya, she explains that she has "pulled some intel" and that two days after the blast the homeless people in the Warren had banded together and seized control of the borough, calling themselves the Dust Men. She adds her suspicion that the group were being led by an extremely powerful conduit.
Cole re-establishes the circuit and gains a new power, Static Thrusters. Testing his new power, Cole glides between the platforms of the sewer, dealing with any Dust Men in his path. Eventually he reaches the substation and once he has fully charged it, the power is returned to this section of the Warren.
