Component 5-Pack
Location: Cosmonaut Training Facility centrifuge chamber, near exit
Current Objective: Leave the training facility

As you finish what you needed to do in the centrifuge chamber, head for the exit. Around the time Kait notifies Baird that they're leaving, the 'Leave the training facility' notification should pop-up. You should notice double doors nearby. That's your exit, but don't leave just yet. Instead, move past the still-closed double doors to find a small control room. Relying on Jack's light, look for a yellow panel. Here you'll find another useful component 5-pack.

Ultimate Upgrade: Slayer
Location: Harbor Docks
Current Objective: Pick up the upgrade module

Using the pump station as a reference point, head south to the other Waterworks icon (which by now should be visible if you finished the first Waterworks mission). This is the harbor docks, the last location of this secondary mission. After you've clear it out of Swarm, use Jack to reactivate the drill. A nomad from a previous mission will appear and reward you with this Slayer module, which is the best upgrade for the Cloak ability.

Component 5-Pack
Location: Military transport ruins
Current Objective: N/A, free roam

This spot is easy to miss as it's relatively far from large landmarks like the Rocket Hangar. That said, your best option is to use the Harbor Docks as a reference point. From the docks, head directly south. Simply look for a collection of military transport ruins with some corpses. You should also be ready for a Swarm attack  After things are clear, look for a corpse lying face down. It's close to but not next to any vehicle. It's worth the search since the component is a 5-pack.

Component 3-Pack
Location: Rocket Hangar entrance
Current Objective: Find a way into the hangar

When you're ready to take on the main objective involving the Rocket Hangar, be sure to have your best weapons at the ready. The path to the hangar door alone will be met with fierce resistance. After you've taken on all the hostilities outside the hangar, look for a platform overlooking the double door hangar entrance. Hang a right on the platform to find a component 3-pack.
