Mission Details
**Available:** Complete Watch Your Step **Location:** Lunar Launching Station; Bounty Board **Level:** 23 **Rewards:** 9869 XP, 1097 dollars, Shotgun

Some of Zarpedon’s information runners have evidence that will help Tassiter get Jack fired and he wants you to retrieve them. These couriers are easy to spot, since they sport red armor. Go to the first location and kill the courier, then grab his ECHO and start heading towards the second spot.

Warning: The second courier has a high chance to drop a legendary shield called Shooting Star (you can get it other places). The only problem is that the courier is an one-time spawn only during the mission, so quit the game (not using Save & Quit) if you don’t get it.

The second courier is in a powersuit and has A LOT of health and shields. However, it doesn’t seem to attack since the guy operating it is a noob with them, likely giving you the chance to kill it without it doing anything. Grab the ECHO that drops and head towards the third courier’s location.

The second courier doesn't know how to operate the powersuit, making it a sitting duck for your attacks.

For the third courier, he will run away once he takes enough damage and will continually do this until he reaches a saferoom or you kill him. If he manages to get to the saferoom, there’s a button around the corner that will open the door for a few seconds. Either way, kill him, grab the ECHO and return to the bounty board to finish.
