Red Mile Run

The Run is fairly simple yet dangerous. You will go straight from the Red Mile Bar and press the button on the pedestal. On the way there will be creatures that will try to attack you so you can either avoid them or shoot and defeat them.

Prepare Ammo And Aids

You may encounter a lot of creatures that will try to attack you and it might be hard to avoid all of them. You will want to prepare lots of aids and ammo for preparation.

Day Is Better Than Night

Since the Run is outside, you may want to participate in the Day instead of the Night. This way you can see where you are going and avoid most creatures as much as possible. During the night, it will dark so you might encounter more than you want.

Head To Codos

Codos Planet

After you complete the Run, you will report back to Mei and Autumn. When you speak to Mei for the second time, she will tell you to head to Codos and tell you about Marco's location.

Confront Marco

You will enter Marco's ship and confront him about the situation. You can either kill him or keep him alive and get the encrypted slate from him.

Head Back To Akila

Head back to Akila and speak to Alex Shadid and give him the slate. He will encrypt it and the mission is complete so you can receive your rewards.
