Walkthrough Guide

Go To Hopetown And Confront Ron Hope

Ron Hope

Head to Hopetown and find Ron Hope. He is the true culprit of this entire journey.

Attack Or Keep Ron's Secret

You will have 2 options after confronting Ron. You can either attack him or keep Ron's secret and let him escape and he will not bother anyone again.

If you choose to keep Ron's Secret (Recommended), you will gain Self-Esteem (Empath) and your companion will approve of this decision. It will also save you health and ammo since you will not be in combat.

Reports Of Not Receiving Rewards Bug

There has been reports that users are not receiving rewards after completion.

Ways To Fix Glitch

Option 1Save before speaking to Ron and if the bug appears then reload prior to conversation.

Talk To Marshal Blake

Marshal Blake

After you let Ron escape, head to Akila City and report back to Marshal Daniel Blake.

If You Chose To Keep Ron's Secret

If you have chosen to keep Ron's secret, you will have to lie to the Marshal, but it doesn't have any disadvantages for you so don't fret. You can save a life as well as not get in trouble for releasing a culprit.

Star Eagle Spaceship

Star Eagle

You will receive the Star Eagle spaceship after you complete the mission since this is the last of the Freestar Collective questline. It is one of the few ships that you can get for free. Use the link to advise the stats.
