You slowly, cautiously send your drone to the left. You keep it low to the floor; as high as the boxes and crates are stacked, you don't think any cameras mounted near the walls should be able to spot it. You don't see any cameras near the middle of the ceiling, at least not yet.

You use the drone's camera to check some of the crates. There's definitely hints that someone's been here recently--drag marks in the dust on the concrete floor, for example. You don't see or hear anyone at present, but you don't suspect the warehouse is entirely abandoned.

You start trying to peek inside some of the crates, looking for spaces between the planks or holes in the wood. You catch a glimpse of a few different things; in one box is a large, strange device. In another, stacks of smaller boxes. The third box you manage to sneak a peek into is full of unlabeled aerosol cans.

Most of these items have a Zone Fifty stamp on them.

Oooook... hmmm, this place sounds like it has a lot of good loot! I guess look around a bit more, for whatever made the drag marks. Be careful/quiet.

Hmmmm. Investigate the drag marks? Can we track where it starts/ends?

Also, time machine, small boxes of holding and shark repellent. :P

Check the drag marks more carefully, and/or look for other hints about recent activity. What kind, what size, how many? Are there footprints? Just "drag marks" isn't helpful at all - could be anything from someone dragging their foot along the ground to someone dragging a corpse to a mutant's tail... anything like that. It's every bit as important to know who is here as it is to know what is here.

Take a look around to see if there are any computers that Fuse can hack into, or records that might indicate what this warehouse is for. Also maybe look and see if there are security tapes or recordings.

Oh-hoh, what could these be.
Going to have all sorts of new toys to work with here.

Just remember that it's likely most Zone Fifty stuff is going to be like, object-based SCP. So there's that. >_> Proceed with caution, heading closer to one of the walls of the warehouse, maybe gain a little altitude and peek over the top of some boxes.
