The Mad Lab challenge involves looting one of the secret laboratories owned by Alad V on Jupiter. This lab will contain Amalgams which are an experimental enemy created by Alad V. In this guide, I will show you how you can successfully loot the lab and complete the mission.

To start, you want to do the challenge with an easier difficulty. For this mission, we’ll pick the capture mission from level 16 to 18 by opening your Navigator, heading to Jupiter, and clicking on the Ananke node. After you find the mission, load it and keep repeating until you reach the starting area.
You will then find a huge platform as well as an ascending corridor. In the meantime, there will be a major megastructure on the left. This is also where you can find the secret lab so the best way is to restart the mission until you reach this set of tiles.
Once this set of tiles has been successfully loaded, make your way through the door and then look for an item called Access Controller to the right of the huge bars. Simply destroy it to start the puzzle that will give you access to the secret laboratory.
Open the door to the secret lab
Before destroying the access controller, you must first search for the door of the secret laboratory. You’ll find a small grate in the wall just below the access console. Break it and go down until you reach a tunnel. Turn right to find a door at the end with three icons on it.
You should take note of the order of the icons because they will correspond to the keys that you must also activate in the exact order to open the door. You can find the three switches in the following locations:
- The first is down the corridor not far from the door on the right wall.
- The second is on a door directly above the broken grid. Simply walk down the aisle to find the key to the right.
- Go back to where the access console is, and you’ll find a room across with another door. You can find the third switch on the left near the end of the lane.
After writing down all three key locations as well as the exact order of the tokens, now is the time to destroy the access controller. Make your way to the first switch and activate it, then go to the second and third switch respectively.
You only have 20 seconds to get to the two icons, so make sure you know exactly where they are.
Once the third code is activated, the door will then open. Inside, you’ll find some loot as well as a purple container containing a Captura scene. You’ll also find another locked door that you can open by switching to player mode and hitting it with your subwoofer.
Behind this door is Alad V’s secret lab with enemies inside. You can find inside another purple container. After dealing with the enemies, just loot everything you can, complete your mission, then extract to complete the Mad Lab challenge.
