Proceed onto the base, after 4 doors you should arrive in a cavern with the MPD. (The pyramid thing) The power lever is located in front of it, on the opposite side.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 - Guide for Moon (The Secrets of the Griffin Station)

Now that the power is on, you need to open doors again to reach the outside of the base. A circular hole is located above the MPD's cavern. This is a teleporter you can access only from above. Once all players are on it, you will be send back to Earth, with the Pack-a-Punch.

  • Hacker tool equipement.
  • Wave gun.
  • Quantic Entanglement Device.
  • Gersh Device.

First Step:

Once the power is on, (see part above) head back outside the spawning room. On your right while facing the Earth, is an area with 4 computers.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 - Guide for Moon (The Secrets of the Griffin Station)

Interact with them to start a memory game. The 4 terminals will glow one by one, showing you their color. Each computer will glow twice, so you can remember their colors.

Then, all 4 terminals will show you the same color. If it's blue, you must interact with the computer that is linked with the blue color. Each time you are correct, the will glow green, before repeating the sequence, with one color added.

Do this little game 5 times. When they turn black, the step is done.

If you are doing wrong, they will turn red and the step will come back to it's starting point.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 - Guide for Moon (The Secrets of the Griffin Station)

Second Step:

Head now to the laboratories, up the stairs in the MPD room. Those labs are separated into 3 floors. On the second floor stands on a wall 4 buttons (on the left of the stairs leading to the third floor).

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 - Guide for Moon (The Secrets of the Griffin Station)

The first button to the left must be hacked for 500 points Doing so, you will have a limited time (about a minute) to hack 4 panels with shiny lights on them. There are 8 of them scattered around the three floors, but only 4 will glow.

The possibly glowing pannels are located:

  • Two on the second floor. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 - Guide for Moon (The Secrets of the Griffin Station)

  • Three on the third floor.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 - Guide for Moon (The Secrets of the Griffin Station)

Once done, head back to the buttons on the wall. You must activate all of them very rapidly. Making it easier if you are 4 players. If you are alone, just move from left to right while pressing action.

If done correctly, they will all glow.

Third Step:

For this step you will need patience. Three excavators might randomly activate to approach and breach the integrity of the base. One of them, the excavator Pi (π), will try to break tunnel 6. Let it do so. Take then the hacker tool and use it on the affiliated console on the spawn.

Once the excavator is pushed back, head to the tunnel which just break. You should find lying on the ground, a dark metal ball. It is a Vrill Sphere. In order to move it, you will have to knife it. Follow the ball and keep knifing it when it stops. If it is stuck on a door, simply open it.

The ball will eventually stick on the antenna, on top of the spawn. In order to make the ball move on, you will need to shoot it down with the Wave-Gun.

Consult the detailed guide above. :)

Ground Control





Difficulty: Moderate (Can take a long time).

Eventually once the power is on, an alarm will let you know that one of the three Excavator has been activated (Either Epsilon, Omicron or Pi). If you do nothing, the excavator will, after around four minutes, breach the base, depressurizing the area, and in two cases, blocking the way.

To stop the excavator, you must take the hacker tool, and use it on the concerned console in the spawn. The three are in the border of the room, and the ones linked to an active excavator will glow. The greek symbols are also on the console.
