"Good night for some practice, right?"
― Rose and The Freelancer
The Killhouse is a training mission that was released on August 14th, 2018, with the initial goal of testing indev mechanics for Entry Point. The Killhouse replaced the removed PvE gamemode and the stealth mode was added later on September 4th, 2018. It was the first non-tutorial mission to be released. This map is also used in The Gala.
The mission is based off of real life small arms shooting ranges, named "Killhouses", which are used to train military or police personnel.
The Killhouse is Halcyon's premier training facility. Operatives can practice stealth and loud approaches to prepare them for future missions. The objective is to infiltrate, find and open the vault and exfiltrate with the loot.
LayoutThe map is located in a huge warehouse and takes place at night. The walkable area is confined to a maze like structure with many different sized rooms separated by concrete walls, metal doors and walled off door frames. The whole map is split up into 3 sections, each of them blocked off by metal doors. Every area except for the spawn is a Hostile Zone.
The rooms have tables, racks, crates and concrete barriers. First Aid Kits can be found all over the map. The vault spawns in one of the bigger rooms and only has 3 different spawn locations. There are also 3 different circuit boxes which spawn randomly around the map, as well as a Laptop, which doesn't spawn on Legend. Cameras are found in most sections, their amount depending on the difficulty. On Elite and Legend, the amount of potential camera spawns increases significantly. On all difficulties except Legend, there is a camera operator who can be found in one of 3 rooms blocked off by keycard doors.
The layout of cameras, blocked off sections, camera operators, player spawns and the vault is randomized each time the mission is played.
The only NPCs found in this mission are security guards. They roam each of the sections, looking out for any suspicious activity. One of the guards who is not in the first section will give you the vault code after interrogation. They can be identified by the red vault keycard they drop when you hold them up.
A security guard can be interrogated to gain intel and extra objectives. The Control Room intel will show you the location of the camera operator. The circuit box intel will tell you about the option to disable the sensors using the circuit box. The Access Point intel will show you the location of the laptop.
The guard disguise will allow you to be in every room and lower the detection rate by other guards significantly.
The main objective of the mission is to retrieve the loot bag found inside the vault. Note that the loud plan can also be completed without breaking stealth.
For stealth you have to first aquire the vault keycard and code which is dropped by one of the guards not in the first section. To keep things quiet, you have to also disable the vault sensors by either interacting with them as an Engineer, hacking the laptop found around the map or disabling the powerbox which color matches the one of the vault. After that you can open the vault and escape with the loot.
For loud you have to set up a Diamond Drill at the vault which will take some time to open it up. Putting down the drill will trip the vault sensors so you can optionally disable those beforehand like during stealth. The drill only alerts guards that are near it, so you can drill open the vault if you have taken out every guard in the vicinity of the vault. After drilling open the vault you can escape with the loot.

The Nightmare Assault mode was added on 2018-12-10 and is a special mode accessed in The Killhouse to obtain The Killhouse code. To initiate it you have to begin The Killhouse loud on elite or legend, however the difficulty will change to legend once the nightmare begins, so elite is recommended. 10 seconds after loud has started, one of the 3 wires at random will turn dark, which you will have to rewire. After that a second circuit box's wire will turn dark which you will have to rewire too. After rewiring the third, every wire will turn white if done correctly. Placing the diamond drill at the vault once every player is in the vault room will begin the nightmare assault.
During the assault all lights will go out and the whole map will turn dark. The music will change to eerie ticking sounds and ambience which get louder and louder as the mission progresses. The diamond drill has to drill for 15 minutes, and you cannot leave the vault room. Once the drill is finished you have to extract with the loot bag where you will find the Killhouse code at the spawn.
