Brick wants you to plant some flags over in Sawtooth Cauldron and show Mortar and his men who the real badasses are. Your goal is to plant three flags, but things won’t be as easy as just planting the flag. The closest one to the fast travel station is just over the cliffside, so you can jump down and fight through the bandits to reach it.

Once you plant the flag (Sawtooth Stilts), you need to use the generator and stick around until the flag has been raised to the top. Of course, doing this will trigger an endless amount of enemies to spawn, so you’ll need to keep killing until the flag is at the top, which is when the enemies will stop spawning after you blow up the generator. The bandits will set their aims on the generator and if they do enough damage to it, then you’ll have to pull the switch again to reactivate it.

You'll have to defend each generator from numerous enemies (left). If they destroy it, you just have to pull the switch again (right).

For the Reservoir one, not only will there be the normal bandits, but you will also have some Buzzards flying in and maybe extra special guests in threshers, since they have a close spawn point. The flag at the Scalding Remnants will mostly be similar to the Reservoir one, as you have bandits, Buzzards, and even some threshers. Once all three flags are raised, return to Brick to finish the mission.
