1: Both players will need to build a turbine from the first room by finding the appropriate parts and taking them to the work bench.
2: Use the bus to get to the diner, which should be the next stop. Acquire an EMP grenade from the mystery box, or restart.
3: Next you will have to take the bus to the 4th stop, the Power Station, where you will need to build the parts to turn on the power (750 points to the door). Dr. Maxis will tell you turn off the power, as soon as he is done speaking, turn it off with the switch in the computer room.
4: Afterwards, leave the lab and follow the road to the left, back where the bus came from. You will see a lantern through the fog. On the left side of the road there will be rocks that will need to be followed until you reach a cornfield. Run around the cornfield until you find a gap between the plants, with an entrance.
5: Within is a huge pylon, look above it until you hear and see a thunderstorm above the pylon.
6: Kill every zombie left in the area to restart the round, an electric zombie will have a 50% chance to spawn while the thunderstorm is up above. If he does spawn, you will need to set up 2 turbines at the designated locations.
7: There are 2 entrances to the pylon, which ever side you enter on you will need to face the turbine towards the pillar on the right as the electric zombie enters the pylon. Once Dr. Maxis tells you to kill it, throw an EMP grenade at it without destroying your turbines.
9: Pick up both turbines, and both players will need to find a lantern (teleporter), then set down their turbines down at the exact same moment to call the red mist.
