      It's a shame nothing happens if you don't kill them, it should work a bit like a mission in dark souls 3, where if you don't kill the enemy something else happens, this i'd liked to see that if you don't kill them, maybe while playing with a2 they give you a piece of lore or a nice shop or even just the type-40 lance with a cool catch frase, a shame really...

        After I found them under the bridge, I had to alternate between the rooftop flight suit location and on top of the goliath until they showed up on the goliath... just keep running between the three locations until eventually you find them.

          Can confirm, you don't need to do Forest Kingdom to find them. You have to find them in one of the spots randomly, then find them again in a second spot to fight them. For me, the first spot was under the bridge at the factory, and the second was on top of the fallen Goliath.

            For me the first spot was the galioth the second spot was the building you get the flight suit at. You have to go up those stairs, and over the stone bridge keep going until you see this little dip right behind that building.

              this kind of left a bitter taste in my mouth as I just finished this side quest.
              I found the on top of the goliath, but didn't find them in the building where you started, but the second fight was at the factory.

                Ive completed the game, and am trying to get all the weapons to face the lvl 99 emil boss (the second one), and i cant get this quest to show up at all, any help?

                  it seems they only occasionally show up? i haven't even inspected the flooded ruins yet (i've been working on some sidequests to declutter my map), but here's my info, however helpful it may be-

                  i get the quest, i try to clear some sidequests. head for the closest one, up the goliath. very first spot i check and they pop up, then flee, per the norm. i do some other sidequests, check the starting area, comb through the entire building and check out the starting area. nothing. go to finally reclaim my body from the factory, they don't pop up when i go into the designated area either. nor do they pop back up on the return. do some more sidequests. finally, they show up at the starting area on the second run-through. as a note, they only spawned when i went to the right corner of the roof, the one on the building right in front of the ramp there.

                  hopefully this helps? i've only done this once so i realize things could use some verification, but it's something.

                    "They will only appear in the second location after you complete the quest: The Forest Kingdom (I don't think this is true, I haven't done the quest and I found them.)"
                    There are three spots marked on the map. After beating them at the first one (atop the Goliath) they escaped and then I couldn't find them at the supposed second spot (near where the flight units were) but I did find them at the third one (below the bridge) and I have not done The Forest Kingdom.
