The Computer Lab Ruin is a Hazardous Ruin located on the Western Plateau, only accessed during Adventures with Mali. The creatures inhabiting it are around level 40 and drop rare items, including Carbon Steel Bars as well as a Carbon Fiber and Compressor.
The Computer Lab Ruin was an ancient technological facility that housed the Locator Computer. After the Age of Darkness, the abandoned lab became devoid of organic life with only the AIs lurking about, including the Piggy-Bot 002 and dozens of Sentidog T-45s.
Sometime after Mali's arrival, Mali and the player investigated the ruins. There, they found and retrieved the Locator Computer for research. However, in doing so, the security system activated, blocking off most of the exits while opening up a hazardous hallway full of traps. Mali and the player managed to evade all the traps, but found themselves in the same room as the hostile Piggy-Bot 002 while trying to unlock the exit. The two defeated the AI and made their way out of the ruin.
The Computer Lab Ruin was revisited in The Perfect Trap when Arlo devised a plan to trap the thief that had stolen the Locator Computer from the Research Center. Another part of the ruin was explored, albeit short and void of any hostile enemies. After installing the trap, the Rogue Knight appeared and was trapped; however, the trap could not withstand the sheer force of the knight and was sliced clean. Arlo, Mali, Sam, and the player fought the Rogue Knight but were bested and knocked unconscious by the knight.
