    A. Main Locations
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Welcome to the 23rd [Confed Marine]:
    In the second or third bunker. When the commander guy tells you this is a good 
    time to use Tex's Beserker power, it's in that area.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rescue Brutus [Feral Colonist][chapter 2]:
    Behind door with a slit after you rescue Brutus. Use grenades to destroy the 
    door.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Cemetery gates [Feral Outcast]: 
    Right before the foggy canyon, inside the hut up on the hill to the left
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hunting for Shadoon [Seer Follower]:
    Short alternate path before the second (?) teleporter. You are on the right 
    path if Tex says "the road less traveled." The DNA is held on some sort of a 
    shrine; its hard to miss. After you grab it some enemies will appear, so watch 
    out
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Terrorist ghetto [Militia]: 
    Directly in front of the computer you must destroy for the mission.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Lonesome death of Edward Kingman [Confed Marine]:
    On the path that doesnít lead to the end of the level, in a building.
    
    These more specific directions were created by cassing - -
    
    The only thing you can do at Ferguson base is take out the two guards and the 
    sentry guns are indestructible. The gate to the right of Ferguson is basically 
    on the opposite side of where the level ends (you'll see it shortly after 
    taking out Kingman.
    
    You should find the DNA inside a building at the top center of the Kingman 
    refinery. You'll come to a path the forks left and right. The left path takes 
    you up a kind of steep hill. The right path has a large, opened pipe on the 
    right (that you can walk through). Take the path on the left up the steep hill.
    At the top, the path forks again, left and right. On the left is a large 
    container (looks like a medicine tablet) with Kingman's face on it. On the 
    right there is a moving oil rig. The building is in the middle; directly in 
    front of you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ship graveyard [Outcast shaman]:
    In the second part of the stage in a big area with a lot of structures. The 
    canister is in a small shed to the right of the big area when you enter.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Return to osrisis [High priest]:
    Near the beginning of the level, inside a priest of shadoon hologram. When you 
    walk into it, the holo will disappear, revealing the DNA.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Seers of the bayou [Feral Shaman][chapter 3]:
    You'll reach a point where the path branches left across a bridge and further 
    up a tree. The left bridge is the correct path. Further up there's an outcast 
    that rolls bombs at you. Kill him and the canister should be there (might be 
    behind a destructible door)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Squirm [Gunther Ghent]:
    At the fork in the road go left. You will have to kill the objective before he 
    reaches a landing zone. After, the DNA is located in a small building to your 
    forward left on the wall, assuming as if you just walked in through the gate 
    into the area.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Supermutant [Militia]:
    After you kill the supermutant and open the rear gate, turn left. There is a 
    big pipe in the back which contains the DNA canister. The pipe is across from 
    the exit point.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Kill Shadoon [Shadoon]:
    Defeat shadoon the first time and he'll drop it.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Abaddon [Fire hound]:
    At the end of the level, go past the satellite. It will be just on the edge 
    next to the lava.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SETI 2049 [McTavish]:
    When you climb the building to McTavish, head left and go to the edge, it's 
    behind some crates or something. Itís straight across from McTavish.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hostile Reception [Shrike Soldier][chapter 4]:
    Remember the ship at the end of the fourth chapter of this level, the one the  
    Shrike is escaping in? Destroy it or not, you can enter the tunnel the ship 
    launched from. You should find the DNA in there.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ripe for Plunder [Shrike Heavy]:
    Inside the building with the last weapons crate. You may have to blow up a 
    wall.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Shrike Rogues [Shrike Hound]:
    On top of the ziggurat.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Anvil [Hunter lord]:
    In the final area with the boss, circle around the edge until you get to one 
    of two the force field projectors. It should be right there.

    B. MISCELLANEOUS INFO.
    
    ===============================================================================
    If you are wondering why you may have some discrepancies with DNA, this may be 
    the reason. Two levels contain the same DNA, so although there are 18 levels, 
    there are only 16 characters to unlock.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Squads: To unlock the squad, you must collect its members DNA.
    
    Brute Force     : Already Accesable.
    Ferguson Platoon: McTavish, Confed Marine, Militia, and Gunther Ghent.
    Ferral Squad    : Feral Colonist, Feral Outcast, Feral Shaman, and Outcast shaman.
    Seer Squad      : Seer Follower, High priest, Shadoon, and Fire hound.
    Shrike Squad    : Shrike Soldier, Shrike Heavy, Shrike Hound, and Hunter lord.

    C. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    
    ===============================================================================
    Q: I think something's wrong, I got the same DNA for two levels!
    A: See Section B. MISCELLANEOUS INFO.
    
    Q: How do I unlock squads?
    A: If you want to unlock squads, you must collect the DNA canisters associated 
       with the squad's members. See Section B. MISCELLANEOUS INFO.
    
    Q: Do you have to complete the mission to get the DNA canister?"
    A: The answer is you only have to complete that section, not the whole level
       (i.e. in Return to Osiris, you can get the canister, finish the first
       section of said level, and exit)
