Complete Hunting the Firehawk 12 The Dust (Loggins; At Ellie's garage) 792 XP, $175, Assault Rifle or SMG

Loggins wants revenge on the flight squad he was kicked out of, with his method being to destroy the volleyball net they used in between air raids. Before setting off, make sure you have either an incendiary weapon or an explosive one, as you will need it. Grab a vehicle and get to the waypoint to find a huge ramp. Boost your way to the top and you should fly right into the camp.

There are a lot of enemies throughout the camp, including Marauders, Goliaths and Buzzards. These are the flying bandit vehicles you might have seen upon entering The Dust. They are armored and their health is yellow, so if you have a Corrosive weapon, use it on them. Back to business, your goal is to sabotage their volleyball net and basically ruin their downtime hobby.

There will be a big ramp (left) that you will need to use to get into Goose's Roost (right).

You will be asked to run around the entire camp and collect four volleyballs, as well as collect two gas cans. A majority of them are out in the open and pretty easy to grab, except for one ball near the net, requiring you to jump onto the roof of a building and onto the platform with the ball. Once you’ve gathered everything, go up to the net and douse it with the gas, then light it with either your explosive or incendiary weapon.

This will prompt three Shirtless Men to spawn and start shooting at you. These enemies are pretty much just Badass Marauders, so you should treat them as such. They can do pretty good damage, so try to find some cover while you take them out one by one. When all three are pushing up daisies, return to Loggins to finish the mission.
