Avatar Frontiers Of Pandora: How To Escape TAP [The Awakening]

Here are the easiest steps you can follow to escape the TAP facility and see Pandora in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.

The Awakening is the first storyline mission that you find after the first Avatar Frontiers of Pandora cutscene. It is basically a tutorial on the movement system of the game. You will have to navigate out of the TAP facility along with your fellow Na’vi members. It isn’t a difficult mission, but it is confusing because there are different ways and paths you have to take to escape TAP in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.

Key Takeaways
  • You will have to escape from the TAP during “The Awakening” mission of Avatar Frontiers of Pandora.
  • Escaping can be really confusing since there are so many rooms and ways you could get lost.
  • If you get lost, backtracking gets hard in Avatar Frontiers of Pandora
  • The whole mission is basically a tutorial for your movement, like crouching, sliding, and charged jumping.
  • After escaping the TAP, you will find yourself looking at the beautiful visuals of Pandora.
  • It will take around 5 to 15 minutes to escape the TAP if you follow the right steps.
Before You Start: You have to first get some food from the canteen and then return back to the cryovault.

Alongside my guide, it’s worth considering eXputer’s video demonstration on escaping TAP for a more hands-on experience:

The Na’vi Warrior’s name is So’lek, and he will give you a radio communicator after meeting him.

  2. Drop down and keep following the path until you see the Floor 3 Walkway.
  3. Move up the stairs, and after getting inside the room, take a round turn from the middle wall.
  4. Get inside the vent on the right wall and crawl through it to find RDA soldiers.

Sneak Past The RDA Soldiers

There will be RDA soldiers in the next room on high alert, so you have to sneak past the soldiers with a crouch.

  1. Move onto the right room and crouch past the soldiers on your right when they turn away.
  2. Make sure to walk from the window end when the RDA soldier leaves.
  3. Slide through the small opening in the next room and sprint past the soldiers without them noticing.
  4. Move up the stairs at the end of the corridor and get inside the next room through another small opening.

The next room will have soldiers rounding up below your level.

  1. Move toward the main huge window opening, and on the left, there will be a door to the gym.
  2. The door will be closed, and it can be opened by repairing the broken wires on the left side of the door.
  3. Move through the door and drop from the right side of the ledge.
  4. Drop down and move through the broken dropped vents.
  5. Sprint if any soldier spots you to avoid gunfire.
  6. Move along the path until you find blue bioluminescent moss on the floor.
  7. Keep moving along the path and slide through the small opening of your classroom.
  8. After going through the two mechanical doors, you get to the cutscene of a mecha hitting you.

Get Out Of TAP

After the cutscene breakthrough, the vent to get into the Generator room.

  1. Jump above the generator on the right and make a charged jump onto the pipe. 
  2. Move down the pipes by crouching and crawling.
  3. Head down the pipeline maintenance and drop down from the left opening at the end.
  4. Head up the big vine and jump onto the upper level.
  5. Move ahead and into the vent.
  6. By the end of the vent on your right, you will find an obvious opening with the sunlight.
  7. Move toward it to finally escape TAP.

So this is how you are able to escape TAP without having to wander off into different rooms. The mission is particularly difficult due to the various paths and rooms you can get into accidentally. It could remove you from the original path, making you backtrack your steps. It will be much easier if you just follow the steps mentioned above in the guide, as it took me 5 minutes to clear the entire mission. 

After the mission, you will be able to witness Pandora for the first time, and players on X have described the visuals as breathtaking!
