When the quest is available, player characters need to head for the area marked on the map and essentially lazer targets in the area for the artillery stationed at Fort Defiance to open fire on. This usually requires a weapon with a recon scope, but can also be completed by killing all targets in the area. Recon and mark targets in the area, set up the target for the artillery piece, then clear out of the area to avoid being collateral damage when the artillery piece opens fire. After the artillery strike, mop up any stragglers, and the quest is completed.
