|Quest:||Episode 4: Mop-Up #3|
|Description:||Sweep the enemies from the Subterranean Desert.|
|Reward:||Meseta (varies by difficulty). Also, you can win the Synthesizer by completing this quest on Ultimate.|
|Overview:||Episode 4: Mop-Up #3 is fairly
timed, killing quest. You start with 10 minutes on the timer and must
kill all the enemies before it runs out. If the team is unable to clear
the final room before time
will be transported back to Pioneer 2 and be forced to exit the quest.
Sixty seconds will be added to the clock each time your team clears a
monster-infested room (excluding the last one).
When playing this quest on Ultimate, your team will have to move at a very quick pace to clear it in time. Each enemy spawn contains numerous monsters. It is advised that your team use a 4-way Photon Blast combination before loading the quest. Even with a full team of high-level players, it may take a few tries to clear this quest. To maximize your team's chances of clearing, they should ignore the boxes laying around and focus soley on the monsters.
Even though this quest does not have any hidden puzzles or warp, there is one environmental hazard that will make fighting difficult, super-heated sand (denoted as "Hot" on the map). The super-heated sand will do steady damage to your character, just like poison gas. The Force in the party should use Resta-range boosting items to keep the team's HP up in the rooms with this hazard. Also, teams should avoid using Photon Blasts in rooms with this hazard. Your HP will be drained while the Photon Blast is happening.

Since this is a timed quest, you will have to fight your way through this quest as quickly as possible. Try to stay at full health and avoid using Photon Blasts in the "Hot" rooms. Heal before entering the final donut-shaped room. If your team is running low on time, avoid opening boxes and focus on killing.
