Pick Up the Merchandise

Manaia wants you to pick up the merchandise that her client left behind at Warehouse 03 after hastily attempting a hit on the intended target. Manaia was supposed to perform this hit, but the client rushed the job and left evidence at the site.

Head inside Warehouse 03 on the leftmost side of Ebbside. You might have to deal with some stragglers here if you haven't played through the Ebbside Strikers questline and cleared out the warehouse in the quest Showdown.

The Sidestar will be marked as Contraband, and you'll find it inside a medical container.

Sell the Discarded Sidestar to Kolman Lang

Take the Discarded Sidestar to the Trade Authority shop in Bayu Plaza and speak to Kolman Lang. You can't sell it to him through the inventory menu and must choose the dialogue option for the Sidestar. Kolman says the weapon has too much heat and will buy it for only 500 Credits.
