Hit the Ground Running is the first mission available to Troopers. It is received by player characters on Ord Mantell immediately after character creation. This mission is part of the Trooper class story line and takes players from Drelliad Village to Fort Garnik.


You're the newest member of Havoc Squad, the most elite infantry unit in the Republic military. Your first assignment is on Ord Mantell, where a separatist uprising has spiraled into a planet-wide war. An armored personnel walker is carrying you to Fort Garnik, where you'll receive a full briefing on your mission.
~ Star Wars: The Old Republic, Hit the Ground Running mission description

While traveling to Fort Garnik a transport carrying Havoc Squad veteran "Gearbox" Bex Kolos is immobilized by separatist missile fire near Drelliad Village. Gearbox believes he can repair the transport, but unless the separatists' cache of missile launchers is destroyed the walker will simply be fired upon again if it starts moving.


  • Speak to Gearbox
  • Destroy the Missile Launcher Cache
