Out of Gas is a heleus assignments mission. It is acquired while passing through the northern desert in the Sea of Ataraxia.

Description[edit | edit source]

You wandered off the beaten path and something in the middle of nowhere seems to have disabled the Nomad. A scavenger named Hardy, who just happened to be around, claims he can fix it.

The Nomad was immobilized, but you have obtained the part needed to fix it from a scavenger named Hardy.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

  • Look around for signs of life
  • Speak with Hardy
    • Kill Hardy
    • Get the part
  • Start up the Nomad

Notes[edit | edit source]

Out of Gas Breakdown Location Map.png

When you get close to the location for the start of the mission in the northern Sea of Ataraxia region, the Nomad will have electrical arcs course over the surface of the vehicle for the first indication that the mission is getting close to starting. Continue driving and the Nomad will have additional electrical arcs over the vehicle body then break down.

Until the Nomad breaks down completely, extraction will still work, and the Nomad will continue to function as long as Ryder doesn't drive back to where it started to break down. HOWEVER, it is ill-advised to leave this area with the Nomad until the mission is complete. There are bugs with Fast Travel and Extraction that can show up if trying to leave before this mission has been fully triggered. This mission is very short and can be quickly completed.

After Hardy explains his racket, Ryder can choose to pay the credits or to just kill him. The price is 500 credits, though Hardy doesn't specify that. If Ryder doesn't have the money, Hardy will say "I guess we have to do this the hard way" and Ryder is left with no alternative to killing him. There is no difference in the mission reward.

The mission objectives will change slightly based on whether you choose to buy the part or take the part by force. Killing Hardy adds extra objectives but these lead to the same conclusion and rewards.
