The VIPER Clutch Lab is an interior instanced Mission Map accessible from the Rime Woods region of the Canadian Wilderness. It is the location of all Objectives of the Mission Klaus Unsheathed, given to heroes by Dr. Karl Severisen, of the Rime Woods.

The Clutch is the center of VIPER's presence in the Rime Woods of the Canadian Wilderness. It if from this single heavily-fortified location that the experiments carried out by the separate field labs are coordinated and planned. Run by Dr. Manfred Klaus, The Clutch must be shut down if VIPER's actions in the region are to be contained.


The entrance to the VIPER Clutch Lab instance can be found in the Canadian Wilderness, in the Rime Woods region; a south-facing door in the northernmost building of the compound known as the Clutch provides entry into the facility's interior.

Near the entrance there are two lore items to inspect, a box of comics inside the tent and a viper manual next to the tent between the hoverbikes.

The man in charge of VIPER's research is named Dr. Manfred Klaus. He's holed up in the main Lab facility of the Clutch, and all evidence suggests he is up to something monstrous. I got a feeling there is more to this guy than meets the eye. You need to find some backup and take him down, but be ready for any surprises he might have up his sleeve!
