Guide the Blue Ridge Caravan Co. through the Big Bend Tunnel.
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 Carver Timmerman alongside Blue Ridge guard Libby Wen. The event consists of moving through the tunnel, fighting waves of Blood Eagles whose main goal is to kill the two brahmin being escorted by Libby, Carver, and the player character. Throughout the entire journey, one can find four lost supplies that can be picked up to give a small boost to the reward. The lost supplies are in Blue Ridge Caravan crates usually just off the main tunnel the convoy goes down, but are potentially randomized during each run.
There are three stops along the way where the player character will defend the caravan against the Blood Eagle attack. At the first stop, one will have to wait for Libby 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. Be careful as the Blood Eagle Captain sports a heavy automatic weapon, such as a minigun. 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 biggest threat to the brahmin will be the Blood Eagle mongrels that will run up to bite the brahmin while the Blood Eagle infantry will usually be inaccurate with their weapons while taking cover to avoid return fire.
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.
