In short, you cannot lower, destroy or bypass the barriers. There is a special event during the main story in which a friendly allied character shows you he is able to take them down.

It’s during the final steps of the story mission, Hostile Takeover, it’s not an optional quest. You can’t miss it.

Blaine "Captain Camper" Smith is one of the original founders of Gamers Heroes.
