Your first official task will be given to you here, and you'll have to head to Montara Luna to investigate a disturbance.

Head to Montara Luna

Fast travel to the moon of the planet Montara within the Cheyenne Star System. You can land on the Waggoner's farm here.

Follow the Tracks

You'll have to follow the tracks left behind by the Ruffians. You'll follow footprints left in the mud with quest markers leading you to each one. However, be careful as the path is full of dangerous creatures, and mines are also laid in your path.

Kill the Ruffians

Be prepared for a gunfight with these Ruffians. Their leader will be around level 12, but if you have the best early weapons and spacesuits equipped, you can make short work of them.

Search for Clues

After you've killed off all the Ruffians, you need to look around for clues and loot. Make sure to pick up the Skill Mag lying on the table nearby. You're looking for the "Job's Done" slate on the corpse of the Ruffian Leader. Listen to it to learn what they were doing.

Report back to Mikaela Waggoner

You can fast-travel back to the Waggoner farm and update her. She'll be thankful for your assistance. You can ask for a few extra Credits, but this isn't behavior fitting a Freestar Ranger. This will conclude the Deputized quest.
