The Cycle: Frontier Private Business Quest Guide

The “Private Business” questline involves a lot of killing in The Cycle: Frontier but you can expect a worthy reward at the end.

You can start the quest by speaking with Marie Gilbert, the chief procurement officer of the ICA faction. This quest will be one of many ways to help you earn faction points to level up factions in the game.

Private Business Quest Part 3

The third and final part of the questline pits you against Marauders, deadly lizard-like alien creatures.

You must deliver 5x Hardened Bone Plates and 10x Charged Spinal Bases at the marked location on the map.

Hardened Bone Plates can only be looted from dead Marauders. Charged Spinal Bases similarly need to be looted from Dead Striders but during a storm. Hence, you will have to wait for a storm to come in order to loot enough Striders to complete this quest.

Remember that a storm only lasts for a few minutes. You will need to be quick.
