Quick walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Guide the Blue Ridge Caravan Co. through the Big Bend Tunnel.

Detailed walkthrough[edit | edit source]

The event is started by talking to Vinny Costa at the Big Bend Tunnel East entrance in the Cranberry Bog. The player character can tell him they are there to help guard the caravans moving through the tunnel. Once the event starts, one will be assigned to guard a merchant alongside another guard. The event consists of moving through the tunnel, fighting waves of Blood Eagles whose main goal is to kill the brahmin. Throughout the entire journey, one can find four lost supplies that can be picked up to give a small boost to the reward.

There are three stops along the way where the player character will defend the caravan against the Blood Eagle attack. At one stop, one will have to wait for the caravan guard to detonate a small explosive to clear a Blood Eagle barricade. At the middle stop, fighting a legendary Blood Eagle captain along with a medium-sized squad of Blood Eagles is required. Once this is complete, a quest objective will appear telling one to open the gate for the caravan. After the gate is open, Blood Eagles will appear at one more stop afterward. Following the last stop, one will walk a short distance and find the exit. The event ends once the caravan reaches the exit.

The amount of XP and caps rewarded is dependent on the number of remaining brahmin. Each of the four possible supplies collected provides an extra 50 XP and 10 caps, but doesn't affect the chance to obtain rare rewards.
