Interact with a terminal (marked with a) in Prodromos on the first floor of the building with the merchant and acknowledge the entry to acquire the task.
Investigate Supply Drop Sites Edit
Head to one of the navpoints to scan the lost supplies and clear out the vermin. Scan the debris for +10 .
Depending on which site Ryder scans, SAM will make different suggestions on what happened or Ryder will reach different conclusions about what happened.
Report The Wildlife Edit
Ryder can continue investigating further sites to uncover the truth, or head back to the terminal to finish the task early by completing the objective "Report The Wildlife."
Optional: Investigate Other Sites Edit
At this point, "Report The Wildlife" is marked as failed, but Ryder receives another objective instead.
Investigate The Hideout Edit
Go to the navpoint northeast of the kett base in The Sheartop for Defeating the Kett. Nearing the navpoint, someone named Chase Gagnon will threaten the Pathfinder over comm, but Chase is convinced to stand down and talk. It turns out the thieves are exiles from the Nexus, hoping for some way to make it back. Ryder can either offer them a new start in Prodromos, or tell them to get off of Eos.
If Ryder choses to give the smugglers a second chance, Chase Gannon can be found in Prodromos.
Report The Smugglers Edit
Go to Prodromos and upload the investigation data to the terminal. The mission is then complete.
If Ryder chooses to report the destruction is due to wildlife:
- +270 XP
- +29 AVP
- +2% Eos viability
If Ryder chooses to report the destruction is due to smugglers:
If Ryder visits the hideout much later, there is the same dialogue, but this time with the invisible and voiceless man.
