You’ll come to a battle between Canid, Marauder and August Van Noy and May Van Noy. Defeat the enemies and talk to the Van Noys. You can opt to retrieve Zora’s team to safety, and you’ll be informed they need medical attention and have lost track of their medic.
Approach the facility and a group of Raptidons will attack you. Defeat them and take the right path up a hill to go toward the medic. There are two Raptidon Colossus where the medic lays, so prepare for battle. After defeating them, go into the residence and loot the medic’s corpse to obtain the Unique Weapons: Euthanasia Kit, as well as the Iconoclast Trauma Kit quest item.
