Root Access is a Main Mission in The Ascent. Main Missions mainly focus on progressing the main campaign and story of the game where you explore the world of Veles to find out what has happened through the arcology. Completing missions grants various rewards such as Weapons, Armor, and more, but most importantly, it yields EXP that is allocated into leveling up the player's character.


Going into the lower maintenance levels where Project MenShen facilites are lcoated. I am to expect heavy resistance from both the Ascenders and Onyx Void.

Root Access Walkthrough

Head to Deepstink Level


This mission becomes immeditaely available after completing Board Meeting. Take the executive elevator from the Ascent Group HQ an pass through the dNexus to reach Deepstink. You'll need to pass through the Waste Recycling Network and Sub-Sector 41A to reach xx. If you remember, the location you need to reach is the where you first met Trummer in his office during the first Main Mission, Arcology Blues - now, before you proceed to the Deepstink level, we highly recommend that you upgrade all your equipment and visit any Merchant you need since you'll be travelling at the lower-most section of the Deepstink in search for the MenShen Facility.


Along the way, you'll encounter Ferals and a few Papa Feral in the Waste Recycling Network. Fight your way through until you reach the entrance of Silo 86 which is at Sub-Sector 41A. Simply interact with the terminal to authorize your entry. Now, the Ferals here are a bit high level compared to the ones you encountered and there are a lot here. So make sure you have a strong Ballistic Machinegun weapon so that you can easily kill the horde. Another tip is to use the Spiderbots augmentation since the explosion can hit multiple enemies at once.


Near the entrance of Silo 86, there's a locked door on the south section of the map. You can hack the door that requires ICE 1 for unlocking doors and by now you should have at least ICE 2 for hacking doors. Behind the door is a private resting area where you can find a Grafter and certain items such as a Superior and Advanced Component - there's also lockers here which you can check to find UCREDs, after checking the room proceed to the marked objective and fight your way through hordes of Ferals.

Enter the MenShen Facilities


Now, at the lower-most section of Silo 86, head northeast on the map to find more items such as a Skill Point and an advanced component. After grabbing the items, ping your waymarker and follow it to reach entrance of the MenShen Facility. Take note that when you're near the entrance, you will be fighting mechanical enemies such as Light Monobot, Logbot, Megarachnoid, and the Siege Mech,  as well as Ascender Combatants so make sure you have a strong energy and ballistic firearm Weapons so you can easily adapt depending on the enemy you are fighting.


When you're near the entrance (you'll know when you see Ascender Combatants), be ready to fight two Siege Mech enemies, alongside more Ascender Combatants. To set-up, you can hack the two sentry turrets so that it can help you in fighting the enemies. Try to bait the enemies near the turret and then be ready to fight. Make sure you have Rejuv Field equipped so that you can heal up, and have Hyper Foucs to slow down incoming bullets. Simply defeat the enemies and pass through the entrance of the Menshen facility to reach MenShen itself - you'll then complete this main mission, obtain 300,000 XP as a reward and unlock the next and final mission, Unhandled Exception.
