Activate Water Source Mission in Division 2 – How to Start the Pump?
To start the water pump during the Activate the Water Source mission in The Division 2, you’ll have to turn the correct valves in the pump room. You get access to the pump room after clearing out the lobby leading to it of enemies. The door to the pump room is the white one on the far end of the lobby from where you come in. Once in the pump room, you’ll notice a number of valves, five of which you can turn.
So, what does one have to do in to start the pump? Well, take a good look at the room. You’ll notice that there five valves you can interact with are divided: one on the wall to the right of the door, and four on the wall opposite of the door. You’ll also likely notice that three of the valves are yellow. So, first turn the single yellow valve on the right. Then, turn the yellow valve in the opposite corner (far left from the door). Lastly, turn the third and final yellow valve, the one in the far right from the door. This should solve the puzzle, and you’re free to go to the next step. Incidentally, if you make a mistake, you can simply start anew, by turning the first pump again.
And that’s how you start the water pump in the Division 2 Activate Water Source mission. Check out our other Division 2 guides if you need more help, such as How to Change & Apply Backpack Skin, Secret Room Location – Viewpoint Museum Mission, and Best Starting Perks – Which Perks to Unlock First.
