I completed the game without completing this "quest", am I supposed to find him somewhere? I played it quick, so I only visited cities, SAM sites, the prison and the secret weapon facility. Have started over, playing in SCI-FI mode, and will take the entire map this time, just wondered where I can find him.

One of the sectors south of cambria I believe. I can't remember exactly which one, right off the top of my head. It's around there somewhere though.

Madlab: He can be found in a non-town sector after Deidranna finds out about his
leave. He is usually somewhere in the upper half of the map. Madlab is hiding in a secret partition of a barn. To access it you must activate a switch hidden in a cabinet in the adjacent farmhouse.

Madlab is working on a robot. He is willing to give you the droid Very Happy , but it needs a rifle and a video camera. The camera can be bought in Balime at the electronic or tool store (Franz) or even taken from the museum there Wink . The choice of weapon for the robot depends on how you are planning to use it. I recommend only top guns (e.g. the C-7), since a poor rifle will limit the droid's capabilities. The rocket rifle is also a good choice, but it cannot have an ID lock on it (see: Fredo, at Grumm to reset the ID lock) The weapon will be installed permanently, so choose wisely. Before giving the gun and the camera to the scientist make sure they are in perfect shape. Madlab will also give you the headset required to control the droid. If the robot gets destroyed, Madlab will build another one (only once, since he just have 2 remote controls) Sad

Robot: In order to get the robot you must find the missing scientist and bring him a
rifle and a video camera. The robot can move and shoot like a human merc (it
cannot reload) but it is slow and its stats are poor. However, it has a decent
MRK (80) and high HEA. It also takes much less damage than your mercs when shot. Smile
A battered robot can be repaired by a mech. When employed properly, the droid
can make a valuable addition to your team. The robot is only active when a merc
uses its remote control, which excludes using any other headgear. Sad

The best way to find him, is to keep travelling a lot in the Strategic Map screen between sectors. If you pass through a sector of interest (that could have the scientist) you will get a message like.. "Your squad notices someone in sector xx". Then you might want to look to see if he is in there.

But even being random here are some locations of where he was already found:
H7 (between Cambria and Estoni)
E4 (below San Mona Mine)
I11 (between Cambria, Alma and Tixa)
Around Balime
East of Alma

Back to work, Woody!
