Video walkthrough


Assassinate Dr. Ned for the Jakobs Corporation.
  • Dr. Ned killed


The mission is straight forward as Dr. Ned is found the last room of The Mill. The fight against him will be short as he has a weak shield and moderate health.


"That was easy."


  • Completing this mission will unlock the achievement Night of the Living Ned.
  • "Turns out hes a bad guy ... who knew?" - cutscene when the character reaches him at The Mill.
  • When Dr. Ned is killed, the credits begin to roll but are interrupted by a cutscene to the next mission.



Dr. Ned sends several messages at mission walkthrought:

  • 1st, after the 2nd bridge: "Keep coming. I don't care. I actually designed this shit in stages so it would be more entertaining for me."
  • 2nd, after Wereskags killed: "Alright. What's Jakobs payin' you? I'd offer to double it, but I'm poor as dirt after spending every cent I had into the recreational use of the undead as money makers. So far, not diggin' my plan in hindsight."
  • 3rd, during the 3rd bridge: "Alright, alright. You're makin' a nice little dent in my undead army. That's the beauty of the undead – if you kill them they're just dead again, and I just fire up the mojo, and make them re-undead and they're back to gnawin' at your hind fat."
  • 4th, during the 3rd bridge: "Okay, now you're just getting my dress all a-twitter. If I have to get out of bed and kill you I sure as hell will. Yeah, I'm Echo communicating from bed. So, what?"
  • 5th, during The Mill: "Well, you got me out of bed. Now I'm just pissed off. I love slippers. I live to wear them. Now I'm just gonna have to kill you."
  • and during cutscene: "You smell like popcorn. Now I'm pissed!"
