Get rocket parts 0/3
Walk over to Grouse (black robot) to pick up the 3 rocket parts, marked by blue quest markers.
And also pick up the detonator in the same place as the rocket parts.
Go to Tazendeer Ruins
Fast travel to the Tazendeer Ruins map on Nekrotafeyo – you go there automatically during story mission Footsteps of Giants.
Go to Old Base
Upon your arrival in Tazendeer Ruins, Grouse tells you to go to an old Maliwan base. See the marker on the map below.
Clear Maliwan from Old Base
There are 15 enemies left in the Maliwan base – kill them! The base is split into 3 sections each with its own objective marker, so make sure you keep walking to find new enemies,
Recover Typhon ECHO logs: 0/3 & Kill Omega Mantacore
Next we must find 3 Typhon ECHO audio logs.
Echo Log #1 – Dropped by the last enemy you kill in Maliwan camp
Echo Log #2 – From the last enemy group, run to the end of the tunnel. Up on a scaffold will be the log, but you can’t reach it by jumping. Instead, you must SHOOT it with your guns! This will make it fall down.
Echo Log #3 (Kill Omega Mantacore) – Go back outside the cave and a unique boss monster will spawn, called the Omega Mantakore. It hurls acid balls at you. Defeat the beast and pick up the ECHO log from the floor afterward.
Assemble rocket: 0/3
Go back to the middle of the Maliwan camp and stack the 3 rocket parts on top of each other, marked by a green outline.
Place ECHO logs in rocket: 0/3
And also place the 3 ECHO logs into the side of the assembled rocket.
Last but not least, put the detonator on the roof facing the rocket.
Press the button on the detonator and enjoy the beautiful show!
Talk to Sparrow
Fast travel back to Desolation’s Edge, talk to the red robot friend again. He gives you 3 Eridium and then proceeds to put on some music. Him and Grouse start showing off their dance moves and the mission finishes. You earn some money and XP.
This finishes Fire in the Sky side mission in Borderlands 3.
