Tapping The Grid – Starfield Miscellaneous Mission Walkthrough

“Tapping the Grid” is a Miscellaneous Mission in Starfield that starts with the Activity: “Investigate the Brown-Outs in the Well.” There are two access points to get to the Well. There is an elevator behind the Jameson Mercantile Shop in the Starport District and there is also an elevator in the NAT station below the MAST.

At the Well, look for Louisa Reyez to start the mission.

1. LOCATE THE JUNCTION BOX

Mission text:
“I’ve agreed to help Louisa Reyez track a power drain in the Well in New Atlantis. I need to locate a series of power junction boxes and turn them off.”


For the first junction box, walk past the MED BAY shop to the exit passage. On the other side is the SECURITY OFFICE. Here on ground level, just around the corner is the Junction Box. Louisa will talk to you through the Junction Box. Interact with it to activate.

For the fourth Junction Box, go back to the Trade Authorities building but go up the stairs on the opposite side from before.

Follow the path up, where you can open a silver door and an orange door behind it. That’s where the Junction Box is.

To open the door you need computer access. There are four levers nearby that you can flip to assign power to the door. Here’s how you have to flip the levers: Just activate the first and the second switch from the left. You can ignore the two on the right. The door opens and you can interact with the Junction Box.

5. TALK TO LOUISA REYEZ

Mission text:
“I’ve finished powering down the junction boxes, and need to return to Louisa Reyez to find out what she’s learned.”


Return to Louisa. She is in the building opposite of MED BAY. Just where we met her the first time. Go inside and talk to her. This will finish the mission. The follow-up “ALTERNATING CURRENTS” starts.
