I am trying to unlock the door to the elevator in the Toxic Caves (where you find trapper smiley). I fixed the generator, but when I use the electronic lockpick on the door, it just says, "You need an electric device..."
Ok, my bad. I finally got down there. I got attacked by a robot, and that's pretty much it. There were a few lockers, but they only had junk in them. I cannot find any other info on this in any of the walkthroughs, but one did say something about that area containing Mark II Power Armor as well as some 2mm ammo for the Gauss gun and other unnamed weaponry. Does anybody know anything about this? I searched the place forever and couldn't find anything useful.
Not to mention the robot at the bottom of the elevator tends to make meat confetti out of low level characters. (Even higher level characters can get horribly unlucky and get blown to the second they step off the elevator.)
I'm not saying that it isn't possible to survive at lower levels, just that it's usually more trouble than it's worth.
