Along Came Pollen is a Mission in Genesis: Part 1.

Overview[]

For this mission players have to follow the check points and defend the location while HLNA scans the area for the next checkpoint. Half way through the mission HLNA will mark 9 pods that need to be destroyed, these will each drop one High Quality Pollen. Once a player has collected the last one it will decrease the timer to three minutes and they must now follow HLNAs checkpoints to reach the end. Players will be confronted by a group of spinos, sarcos, kapros, baryonyx, and raptors just before the last checkpoint to complete the mission.

Strategy[]

Things to bring[]

Use the giga to scan the checkpoints, then dismount once you get to the flowers. Use the tek gauntlets or another weapon to destroy the flowers and grab them. The tek helmet will prevent you from taking poison damage, and the gauntlets can be used to bypass the slowness effect. The cactus broth will cause the mission creatures to ignore you. For the end section, use the trick where you pull out your map mid punch and glide to the checkpoints for a quick and easy escape.
