Chimera field locations in Crackdown 3

Find and destroy the chimera fields in Crackdown 3 to halt the production of the deadly chemical poisoning the people of New Providence.


The chimera fields are a harvesting site of TerraNova’s, which means the only logical action is to blow them all up. There are five to destroy around New Providence, with some of the later sites lacking any rocks to use. Locating and destroying all of the chimera fields sound simple at first, but it can be easy to miss the icon on the crowded map in Crackdown 3.

How to destroy chimera fields

There are a few ways to destroy the chimera fields. The first option is to shoot the smashing pistons that plunge into the vats of chimera. This will slowly whittle down the health until they explode. Early in the game, this isn’t a viable option given how little damage the player’s weapons will be dealing.

The second option is to find nearby boulders and throw them into the pit. Every time the piston hits the boulder, it will take a chunk of damage. Throw two rocks in to destroy the chimera fields.

Unfortunately, the last chimera field doesn’t have any rocks nearby, but there are giant mechs. Destroy the mechs, pick up their chassis, and throw them into the chimera. Alternatively, at this point you should have nearly all the weapons and gadgets in Crackdown 3, so shooting the chimera field pumps is an option.

Chimera field locations

There are five chimera fields to destroy in Crackdown 3 as part of dismantling TerraNova’s industry division. Destroying all five is important if players want to improve their success rate when going after TerraNova’s major players. The other industry areas that must be destroyed are the pipeline controls and the containment sites.
