Ancient Labs.png

Ancient Labs are the remnants of a time long past. Once a functional part of advanced civilizations, they now lay in shambles. Treasure seekers should be wary, as the ruins have not gone altogether silent. The mechanical sentries of the past still roam the rubble, and those who wish to salvage the lost tech from these labs must face down many Security Spiders. Tech Hunters have scouted these locations and mapped them for brave treasure seekers.
