The Ascent Feral Testicles are quest items you’ll need to get for the Balls Deep side mission, available quite early in the video game developed by Neon Giant.

Although the Balls Deep Feral Testicles are relatively easy to find, since this mission requires your presence on another floor or Tier in Veles, you may encounter difficulties getting them.

As such, throughout the guide below, I’ll tell you everything you need to know about The Ascent Balls Deep side mission, including where to find Feral Testicles (as gross as it sounds).

So, let’s start with several FAQs.

What Is Balls Deep?

Balls Deep is a simple fetch side mission in The Ascent.

When Should You Start The Balls Deep Mission?

The recommended level for this side mission is 7, so it is best approached after Mutual Dependencies main mission.

What Do You Get For Completing Balls Deep?

For finishing this side mission, you’ll get 2.200 XP and the Vitasigns Booster Weapon Module.

Where To Find Feral Testicles?

Feral Testicles can be found in Deepstink.

Where To Find The NPC (Balls Deep Quest Giver)?

You can find Hans, or the quest giver in Cluster 13 district on Tier: Warrens.

You can see his location on the map below as well as his in-game position. 

How To Descend To The Deepstink In The Ascent

After you talk to Hans, your objective is pretty clear, and you’ll be asked to descend to the Deepstink or the Tier below Warrens.

Now assuming you know how to Fast Travel in Ascent, you may want to use the Train Station nearby and select Archology: The Warrens.

If you play this mission after Trading Places main mission, you can also call a cab; or obviously walk to Arcology: The Warrens.

No matter how you choose to get to the said district, the goal is the same.

To get to the eastern elevator (pictured below).

This is the one that takes you to Deepstink.

How To Collect 10 Feral Testicles

When you enter Deepstink, if you open your map, you’ll see a rather large red area that marks your hunting ground.

All hostile enemies in that area are Ferals, but not all have testicles because not all are males. Obviously.

So, you’ll have to do a bit of hunting before you can get 10 Feral Testicles. The drop rate is close to 1:5, so for 5 Ferals killed, you’ll get one testicle.

This means that you’ll move around and kill everything that moves. With or without balls.

You can see some Ferals below, although I am pretty sure you remember them from the game’s prologue or the first mission.

The Ascent Feral Testicles Locations

After you get 10 Feral Testicles, you’ll have to head back to the same elevator and go up to the previous tier.

Next, all you have to do is to travel back to Hans by foot or by train and hand over the balls he needs for his balm.

After you finish this quest, focus on finding the Hidden Stash in Gratitude.
