Star-Crossed Troopers Walkthrough
This quest is only available if you have completed Passion Pills and have recruited Nyoka into your party. Speak to her after you have left Monarch Wilderness and she will confide that she needs some closure and there’s a dangerous task she would like your help with, in spite of how much she hates asking for help. Accept and you will begin the quest.
Hayes’ Grave is way southwest of Monarch, and you’ll need to head towards Fallbrook to get there. It’s northwest of the C&P Boarst Factory. It’s guarded by Raptidons that you’ll need to kill first. Interact with the grave to receive 6,040 XP. Then speak to Nyoka. This will net you a further 6,040 XP.
Next you’ll need to speak with Hiram, who is northeast of the grave site, which means you’ll have to backtrack a little bit to find the road. Once you arrive at Devil’s Peak Summint speak with Joy Voivode regarding the relay tower she is guarding. If you have the quest Signal Point in Space it will update with a note that you may be able to convince the C3 mercenary company to help you.
They are down the hill a short ways. You can Persuade (20) them not to kill you if you said you emerged from the tunnel, and then you can ask them to help you clear the Marauders from the Station. Additionally, if you inquire further about their boss you will obtain the Task: Mandibles of Doom.
If you complete this Task then you can convince the C3 mercenaries to help you attack the Marauders if you can get the main gate open.
Head the entrance of the Devils’ Peak Station and defeat the Marauders there. There are a lot so be careful. If you have a minute head northeast and loot the Unique Weapon: Hammer of Olympus at Sundered Rock. Then head up the ramp and head into Devil’s Peak Station.
Defeat the Marauders inside and then speak to the man via the Intercom, whom you will find out Hiram. If Nyoka is in your party he will recognize her. Hiram will ask you to wipe out the Marauders in exchange for double the going rate. He doesn’t want his broadcasting equipment destroyed. There is a Lockpicking (55) door nearby that has some loot inside, so consider picking it if you can. Then double back and head up the elevator that is now open.
You’ll need to kill all the Marauders here. If you finished the Mandibles of Doom task and convinced the C3 mercenaries to help you, they will help you wipe out the Marauders. Use the Intercom to open the door and speak to Hiram Blythe. You’ll gain 2,500 Bit Cartridges. Ask him about the Information Broker and you’ll gain an Achievement/Trophy and 16000 XP.
Hiram will ask you to jump start the tower by heading outside and flipping a switch. There is a terminal on the way that you can read some backstory about the Station if you wish. Once you flip the switch a ship will crash land nearby and Graham and Sanjar will argue over what to do with it, and the Faction Quest: Canid’s Cradle will trigger.
Speak to Hiram again and say Nyoko needs a favor. You can Persuade (35), Intimidate (35) or Lie (35) to get him to help her. This will net you 6400 XP and give you the coordinates of the Outpost in Emerald Vale that Rebekah and Anderson went to.
Return to Terra 2 Emerald Vale
Head to Edgwater and fast travel to the Geothermal Power Plant. Then head northwest to the Abandoned Spacer’s Choice Settlement. You’ll have to defeat a group of Marauders there. Examine the key card panel on the busted door to get inside. You’ll find Anderson and Rebekah dead on the floor. Loot their Medallions (Anderson’s CHARON Medallion and Rebekah’s CHARON Medallion) for 6000 xp, and give them to Nyoka. There is a rusty journal nearby that explains what happened to them.
Nyoka is not happy that they decided to abandon Clara, but decides to bury them together anyway. She’ll ask you to head to Scylla to collect some Primal Pheromone Glands. You need to head there to get these, as they don’t drop from just any Primals.
Once on Scylla head to the nav markers and defeat the Pungent Primal Behemoths and loot the Pheromone Gland to gain 6400 XP. Your quest will update and next you’ll need to give them to Nyoka. This will net you another 6400 XP. Then you need to head back to Monarch to kill the Mantiqueen.
The Mantiqueen is all the way at the southern most part of the map so fast travel to the C&P Boarst Factory or Cascadia Turnpike and head south. Use the terminal at the nav point and put in the password that Nyoka gave you “Charon” to open the door to the Mantisaur Hive.
Once inside loot the Medallions from Opal and Clara’s bodies and defeat the Mantisaurs, then place the Glands at the nav points. This will trigger some dialogue with Nyoka and then you’ll need to kill the Mantiqueen and her minions. Speak to Nyoka afterwards to gain 38000 XP and 1200 Bit Cartridges. Talk some more and you’ll gain a further 1,375 Bit Cartridges and a Framed Photograph. You can convince Nyoka to keep or leave the medallions behind, though there is no impact either way. You can then inspect the graves of the fallen and the quest is complete.
