This event has the player or party fight against hordes of Scorched and two scorchbeasts while defending the sonic generator. The item reward for completion contains random supplies, weapons and/or armor pieces.
Clear the initial Scorched from the area and repair the sonic generator and the automated surface to air missile (ASAM). When ready, access the terminal and initiate the pre-combat check. Defend the sonic generator and if it is destroyed, repair it. Focus on defeating the Scorched and allow the ASAM to take care of the scorchbeasts. The only few ways to fail this event is to let the event timer run out, or to let the timer to repair the generator run out. While not a quest requirement, repair of the ASAM may also be required as it will be difficult to kill the scorchbeasts if it is damaged and goes offline.
If the player character lets an ASAM defeat a scorchbeast without personally damaging it, they will not be able to loot the carcass. They will receive experience points for the event but will not receive XP for the kill (which are higher than the points for the event). The kill will also not count toward other quests like Officer on Deck.
