Against the HIVE is a collection of Investigations that can be found scattered across the Little Bohemia district of the city of Metropolis, and in the "HIVE Base" scenario. There are 6 parts that comprise this investigation.


Queen Zazzala's HIVE are a dedicated fighting force. Information on their technology and techniques could be very valuable.


Part 1: HIVE Swarmer Training Manual[]

  • Zone: Metropolis
  • Region: Little Bohemia
  • Location: North-Eastern corner of the park under attack by the HIVE.
  • Investigation: Announcer: "HIVE Mind Transmission: Primary Training Mandate: Swarm them."

Part 2: Korillian Flyer Navigation Matrix[]

  • Zone: Metropolis
  • Region: Little Bohemia
  • Location: on the east side of the Metrodome in the north most indent.
  • Investigation: Announcer: "HIVE Mind Transmission: Navigation Matrix 1226 is offline."

Part 3: Hive Drone Armor Plating[]

Against the HIVE part I
  • Zone: Metropolis
  • Region: Little Bohemia
  • Location: The last token located in Little Bohemia is just on the left side of the instance entrance. It's almost impossible to miss this one.
  • Investigation: Announcer: "HIVE Mind Transmission: Drones- discard armor plating for upgrades."

Part 4: Mind Suppressing Neural Devices[]

  • Zone: Metropolis
  • Instance: HIVE Base
  • Location: This Investigation Token is found in the first “hostile” room. Across the room from the doorway there should be a hanger with two HIVE ships inside. The token is found near the right ship next to an “infiltrator” needed for a sub-quest in the instance.
  • Investigation: Announcer: "HIVE Mind Transmission: Ensure neural devises always functions at optimal parameters."

Part 5: HIVE Stinger Targeting Reticule[]

  • Zone: Metropolis
  • Instance: HIVE Base
  • Location: There is a chamber that requires you to operate a computer. This interaction is of course marked with a cog icon. Before entering this room look to the left in the corner in the room just before this one. The Investigation Icon should be sitting in plain sight.
  • Investigation: Announcer: "HIVE Mind Transmission: Target Acquired - Sting them."

Part 6: Zazzala's Deployment Plan[]

Against the HIVE part II
  • Zone: Metropolis
  • Instance: HIVE Base
  • Location: The last token is right of the exit. Upon seeing the instance boss (Queen Bee) you should be able to see the token in the pre-fight cut-scene.
  • Investigation: Announcer: "HIVE Mind Transmission: The Queen commands us!"
