researcher's dilemma dmz

DMZ’s dynamic mission design creates a variety of exciting and engaging tasks for players, and the Researcher’s Dilemma Black Mous mission is no exception.

This mission takes you on a journey across the map, with the primary objectives involving locating and swapping researcher’s notes.

This guide provides a step-by-step walkthrough to help you navigate through this complex mission.

Researcher’s Dilemma DMZ: How To Complete

Start your mission at the Vondel Zoo Veterinary Office, located in the southwest of the Vondel map, specifically in the D7 map quadrant.

This location can occasionally be a stronghold, so be prepared as you may need a stronghold key card for access. Once inside the office, look for the Animal Care Room, which is locked by the veterinarian key.

Both the double doors and a separate locked door lead to this room, so you’ll need the key regardless of the route you choose.

Once you gain access to the Animal Care Room, you should find the researchers’ notes on the counter. These are your primary objective items for the first part of the mission.

The next part of your mission requires you to head north to the castle, located in the D3 quadrant. The church, your next destination, is situated just south of the castle near the buy station.

You need to place the researchers’ notes you acquired from the Veterinary Office on the second floor of the church within the same deployment.

To reach the second floor, you must climb onto the roof, enter the bell tower, and drop down one floor. Here, you’ll find a suitable spot to leave the researchers’ notes.

In the same area, you will also find the false gas notes and a padded rifle storage, an additional bonus to this stage of the mission.

Upon leaving the researchers’ notes at the church, the next step is to take the false notes from the same location.

You’re now tasked with taking these false notes back to the Veterinary Office in the same deployment. This part of the mission requires a return journey back to the original starting point — the Vondel Zoo Veterinary Office.

Once you’re back at the Veterinary Office, place the false notes on the counter, replicating the initial position of the researchers’ notes you found earlier.

With this step, you have successfully completed the Researcher’s Dilemma Black Mous mission in DMZ.

All in all, the Researcher’s Dilemma mission is a challenging but rewarding task requiring back-and-forth movement across the map and careful maneuvering within specific locations.

Your key to success is a mix of sharp navigation skills, a keen eye for the objectives, and, most importantly, adaptability to overcome unexpected stronghold areas.
