In order to access Hook’s Gift, you must have completed the previously accessed side mission The old foreman’s treasure. Then complete the Jarilo VI campaign and In the Dangerous Muddy Swamp Trailblaze mission. Shortly after, you will receive a text message giving you Hook’s gift.

Tell Hook about this development, talk to Natasha to get Junjun and his Erebus gem eyes, and finally make your way to the tramp camp in the robotic settlement. Talk to the auctioneer in the camp and make sure you boost Junjun’s price and your ability to raise the price.

Get as many bidders as possible to increase the value of Junjun. Initially there will be three NPCs you can talk to, but there are three more hidden buyers. They are:
