The Wingman (Part 1) Walkthrough
This is the first mission that kicks off Everspace 2 with a quick tutorial, before throwing you into the action. Once you have your ship, follow the mining convoy and listen to some dialogue before Ben asks you to do some tutorial moves. This includes strafing left and right, hovering up and down, rolling your ship left and right, then boosting to the right. Afterward, charge your Cruise Drive with F by default to speed over to Craig Calahan. You can use Cruise Drive almost anywhere so long as you’re not too close to anything or being shot.
Once you reach Calahan, he’ll mention a Hydra infestation blocking a gate. All you need to do is follow the on-screen tips and shoot those weird mushroom looking creatures. Head inside the gate after it opens and then wait for the next gate to open up. Continue flying through the tunnel where you’ll find more Hydras along the walls.
You’ll eventually come across a lootable “Wreck” container that you can search by moving close to it. Be sure to loot any other Wreck containers that you may come across. Afterward, you’ll come across a blocked gate that can be blown up using missiles as Ben suggests. Take out an Outlaw Drone that comes floating out. Next, you’ll reach a closed gate with a terminal you can hack to open it. This is on the right side of the gate.
Enter inside the cave, past the structure near the middle, and to the back right behind a cave pillar. You’ll come across a ship floating in place that suddenly attacks back after thanking you for coming to help. Take out the outlaw ship and loot a floating Coil Gun from their wreckage. If you go to your inventory with Tab, you can equip the Coil Gun as a secondary weapon. Get ready for another battle with some drones.
Now that the drones are dead, follow the mission markers to some destructible security bolts. Once all three are destroyed, head through the open tunnel to trigger a cutscene. Now you’ll need to destroy a swarm of outlaws attacking the G&B convoy. Destroy outlaw ships until you get an objective update to check on Ben. Head over to his ship where a long cutscene will trigger, completing the mission, The Wingman (Part 1). This leads to the next Everspace 2 mission, Flying Blind.
