====__Mission 4__ (Epic Arc Branch) - The Paths That Are Hidden====
This mission has 3 different branch options. The final reward of this Epic Arc is based on your decision here:
~-If you immediately take 'Two Steps Into Hell' or 'Playing It Safer' you will be siding with Nugoeihuvi and your final reward will either be from them (20x Nugoeihuvi Synth Blue Pill Booster + Caldari State standing) or from Caldari State(ISK + Caldari State standing).

~-If you choose 'An Honorable Betrayal' you will be siding with Hyasyoda and your final reward will either be from them(1x Standup Hyasyoda Research Lab Blueprint Copy + Caldari State standing) or from Caldari State(isk + Caldari State Standing).

Mission Objective:
Choose 1 of 3 different options to continue the Epic Arc

**Nugoeihuvi path:**
- 'Two Steps Into Hell' (Leads to Null Security system)
- 'Playing It Safer' (Leads to Low Security system)

**Hyasyoda path:**
- 'An Honorable Betrayal' (Leads to High Security system)

**__Note__**
- Making a selection completes the mission.

----
====__Mission 5A__ - Two Steps Into Hell====
Deliver S.I. Formula Sheet to the Nugoeihuvi Cargo Facility in KFR-ZE (Syndicate) in Null Security.
No fighting involved.

~Mission location is over 30 jumps.
~Tip: Use a nano fitted MWD interceptor, since Syndicate is usually bubbled and almost always camped.


----
====__Mission 5B__ - Playing It Safer====
Deliver S.I. Formula Sheet to the Nugoeihuvi Cargo Facility in Faurulle (Solitude) in Low Security.
__**Note**__:
~By choosing this mission as part of the Nugoeihuvi path (by NOT doing 'An Honorable Betrayal'), the option to choose 'The Crimson Decoy' will be removed and you will be given 'Pre-Emptive Opportunities' instead.

~Mission location is over 30 jumps. If path goes through Null Sec, Interceptor is recommended.
~Low Sec is very risky. Nano Interceptor or fast and agile Frigate is recommended. Cloak will also help. Beware of pipebomb camps or remote sensor booster camps (instalock).


======**__Hyasyoda Path__**======

----
====__Mission 5C Part 1__ - An Honorable Betrayal====
Report to Arikio Kuretsu in Wuos (Wuos V - Moon 1 - Hyasyoda Corporation Mining Outpost) in High Security. (Make sure to bring S.I Formula Sheet)


----
====__Mission 5C Part 2__ – Proof of Intent====
Once you report to Arikio Kuretsu in Wuos, you explain to him what NOH is having you do in regards to his corporation. He then has a lengthy explanation about how Hyasyoda has nothing to do about these things. To complete this mission you have to give the agent the S.I Formula Sheet.


----
====__Mission 5C Part 3__ – Return to Isha====
Arikio Kuretsu sends you back to Poinen, where you then get 'Re-examining Options', see Mission 4 'The Paths That Are Hidden' for details. This also unlocks the Hyasyoda story arc branch after you complete either one. (Don’t forget the S.I Formula Sheet)


----
====__Mission 5C Part 4__ – Re-examining Options====
You will be given the choice between 'Two Steps Into Hell' (Null Sec) and 'Playing It Safer' (Low Sec).

**__Note:__**
~Regardless of which mission you select at this point, you will remain on the Hyasyoda Path.
~After completing whichever mission you select, you will be given the mission 'Almost Unmasked'.

----
====__Mission 6__ - Almost Unmasked====
Report to Arikio Kuretsu in Wuos (Wuos V - Moon 1 - Hyasyoda Corporation Mining Outpost).

----
====__Mission 7 Part 1__ - Some Light Theatrics====
In this mission, you have to make NOH think that the CPF compound they are watching has been destroyed. You have to hack into the electronic surveillance(a CPF Habitation Module) and take the security forces out before it explodes, and then return to the agent. You have to be quick however, as the CPF compound explodes about 30 seconds after you hack into it, and if you fail to retrieve the CPF Security Personnel you will fail the mission.
**__Warning__**: The explosion of the CPF Habitation Module causes damage to nearby targets. Unknown whether or not this damage is effected by resistances.
//Combat 900 from CPF Habitation Module - Hits//
