Progress Updates and Quotes
"If I'm gonna treat people shot by E-Tech, I'm gonna need way more wounds to practice on. Now that you've got Doc Mercy's E-Tech gun, why doncha test it out on the local bandits" (Dr. Zed)
"So, it looks like that gun uses Eridium tech to turn bullets into... stuff that ain't bullets. Energy and stuff. God damn, Eridium is weird." (Dr. Zed)
"I've been doin' some research, and it looks like there's all types of E-tech guns out there for you to find - blaster rifles, plasma cannons, railguns - sounds dangerously awesome" (Dr. Zed)
"Alright, after watching you blast those bandits with that E-Tech gun, I've come to a medically sound conclusion: E-Tech is friggin' dope. Come on back to me whenever you're done out there." (Dr. Zed)
"Oh, right. I was supposed to be studyin' the effects of these E-Tech guns on bandits. Right now it looks like, uh... looks like if you shoot'em a lot, they die. Did I mention I don't have a medical license?" (Dr. Zed)
Dr. Zed has made you his honorary research assistant! Your job: Find out more about how this E-tech gun works by "field testing" it on some bandits. As in, "shooting" a bunch of them with it until they "die".
Well done, brainy. Because of your research, Dr. Zed knows that E-Tech weapons, while visually distinctive and scientifically advanced, are still really good at killing stuff.
The caverns and the power plant should spawn enough bandits to kill to complete this mission
Return to Dr. Zed in Sanctuary after you have killed 25 of them.
Strategy Guide - Tips - Cheats
Only kills from your mission weapon counts. Do not use other weapons on these enemies
You don't get to keep the weapon after this mission is over. If you like it and want to keep it for a few more levels, do not finish the mission and instead go do other missions, then when you have found a better weapon, only then turn it in.
