Where To Find The Lost Equipment in Xenoblade Chronicles 3
After you’ve unlocked the quest, head over to the Colony 9 Front Gate and speak with Lenny who can be found hiding behind two tents. Here you’ll discover that argument started after Lenny ignored Eastmen when he was asking Ellis for a favor. Lenny wanted to get some abandoned military equipment so he can see what useful secrets it may hold.
Like always, Noah and team volunteer to help, so fast travel to the Skyview Falls Landmark and head southeast to find Eilis overlooking the equipment. Eilis can’t seem to figure out where it come from and doesn’t think it has any use, but Noah takes a closer look and finds a Mysterious Keycard. Return to Lenny and show him the Keycard and the quest will come to a close.
