Mei is stunned, unable to believe that Overwatch didn't rescue them. After storing the data on a USB stick, she learns that Overwatch is gone-disbanded by the Petras Act. She realizes out that her team hasn't woken up yet, so goes to check on them to find that they are all dead. After falling into a seated position and crying for a time, she looks at the USB stick in her hand and wonders aloud that with 9 years worth of research data she could save millions of lives. She makes a promise to her dead friends that she will bring their work to the world. Or rather, she'll try.
Mei soon realizes this will be easier said than done-the satellite dish is broken, the supply truck is full of snow, the standby helicopter
is frozen solid and although she contemplates journeying into the Antarctic she backs away. She states that she can't do it alone and she wishes her friends were still there, before Snowball brings her a cup of coffee. She thanks the robot as there is a small power drain, and she decides to find out a way of extending the power supply's life. As she clears a screen's data she realizes that a message has been sent on the Overwatch Emergency Frequency, although the signal is weak. She thinks this is a rescue message but she has to climb the radio tower to know for certain.
Using various parts found around the Ecopoint she constructs a prototype Endothermic Blaster, but before she can get it working for certain the power dies completely. There are no more batteries left either. As Mei tries to think of a way to restore power-just enough power for her to finish the blaster-Snowball plugs into a charging port and drains it's own energy so Mei can finish the prototype. After thanking Snowball, Mei climbs the tower using her blaster to create ice to climb up. Halfway up a part of the tower breaks off and a tank on the side explodes, sending it toppling over. Mei freezes the tower to the wall with her blaster and finishing climbing as it turns dark.
