The Tunguska Iteration is a substance created by Jacob Hargreave in order to combat the Ceph by using the Nanosuit 2.0 to create an antidote for the Ceph Spore.


The Tunguska Iteration is an unknown substance that activates the Nanosuit's Spore Combating Protocols to a maximum. It is introduced via syringe and is given to Alcatraz by Hargreave at the end of "Masks Off" as a last hope of defeating the Ceph seeing as how he was unable to get the Nanosuit 2.0 for himself.


As stated above the substance boosts the Nanosuit's Spore combat capabilities to 100%. As shown in intermission cutscenes the Nanosuit at first simply trapped the Spore cells long enough to make them harmfull for Ceph. The suit scanned the spore to 76% but a locking protocol was required to compete the profile. After taking the Tunguska Iteration the Spore cells are weaponized against unaffected cells - and all the Ceph - and start infecting them. This enabled Alcatraz and the Nanosuit to be able to process the large amount of Spore in the Central Park Hive and destroy all Ceph in Manhattan.
