Walkthrough Guide

Start The Mission In Meeting Room

Mission Meeting

Start the mission with the debriefing with the Freestar members. They will ask you to head to Arcturus to confront and defeat Paxton Hull.

Before Leaving Akila, Prepare Ammo And Aids, Repair Ship

You will be expecting lots of combat on the way to Arcturus so prepare yourself before leaving Akila. You will want to prepare ammo and aids for the combat inside the Freestar Mech Factory. Also repair your ship as well since you will be in space battle when you enter the orbit of Arcturus II.

Travel To Arcturus II

Arcturus II

Destroy The Mercenary Patrol Ships

When you enter the orbit of Arcturus II, you will be in combat with several spaceships. You will need to defeat them all before landing on the planet.

Landing Might Be Bugged

There has been reports where you can not land, when you finish combat with the ships.

Ways To Fix Glitch

Option 1It seems bigger ships are experiencing landing issues, so it might be recommended on using smaller ships to land.

You will be in several battles with Paxton Hull. First you will confront him and get a down on him. Then you will have to defeat the First Mercenaries to speak to him again.
