Board Countermeasures are a type of side quest in Control. They’re simple tasks with but one objective, which usually involves killing enemies in a certain way. Once you’ve completed one, you’ll have to go to central executive to collect your reward. However, when you get there, you might not realize what it is that you’re supposed to do. Nothing will be marked, no helpful hints offered. If you’re not having any luck with this, our guide will show you how to claim your rewards from Board Countermeasures.
How to complete Board Countermeasures?
The first time we completed one of these, we were stumped. Going back to Central Executive did nothing. No objects were marked for interaction. There was nothing indicating that we should be here, and nothing telling us what to do next. Turns out it’s pretty simple. All you have to do to turn in the Board Countermeasure is interact with the Control Point in the specified area. Later BCs won’t even force you to go to a specific one – any control point will do.
That’s all there is to it. Using the Control Point might become second nature later in the game, after you’ve spent some time in its weird world. However, the first time you encounter this will be pretty early, and it might just prove to be a bit too obscure and confusing.
If you’re having trouble with other parts of the game, make sure to check out some of the guides we’ve written. They include instructions on where to find preorder bonus items, the solution to the Oceanview Motel puzzle in the Unknown Caller mission, explanations on how to unlock outfits, and more. If you’re stuck with some other problem, one which we haven’t written about, feel free to leave a comment and we’ll try to look into it.
