  • The Trapper IconHelpLoading trapper.png goes down the Basement, finds you and hooks you.
  • You then have 2 choices to escape the Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png: one of them is to try to escape yourself, the other is to wait for a teammate to rescue you.
  • If you're patient, Meg is going to come and rescue you. After you've been unhooked, you are tasked with finding a way to heal, which is possible by searching the Basement's Chest IconHelp chests.png. After doing it, you'll get a Med-Kit IconItems firstAidKit.png, which will be used by yourself to heal.
  • After you completed said task you'll be teleported outside the Shack. At this moment, Meg is being hooked. You're tasked with saving her, then healing her.
  • Finally, a message box appears explaining the importance of teamwork, then you and Meg repair the last Generator IconHelpLoading generators.png.
  • After the Generator is been repaired, you can open the Exit Gate IconHelp exitGates.png in front of you or escape via the Hatch IconHelp hatch.png.
