|Ruin on the Horizon
Complete mission “Riding to Ruin”.

“Riding to Ruin” is buggy. If you started following the posse, but then wandered off, only to catch up with them later at the gate, they might get stuck in an endless loop of conversation, and you’ll be unable to complete the mission. If you start “Riding to Ruin” make sure to follow through with only the quest and it should complete properly.
Buggy warning 2:
There is a bug that For whatever reason won’t allow you spawn into a vehicle on Gehenna which while annoying early on also, game-breaking due to the fact that you’ll be unable to proceed with this mission because you cannot spawn a vehicle. People have tried Hi-jacking enemy vehicle to no successes, it’ll only give you a prompt for unlocking new parts but won’t put you in the vehicle.
Spoiler: After reaching Roes, she feels unstoppable and fights you. This isn’t a difficult boss fight. Once her health reaches zero, a cut-scene plays and she calls upon The Ruiner to save her. The Ruiner has many large green crystals on it’s back, that’s where you want to shoot, to deal the most damage. There are Telezappers to help you dodge attacks if needed. Once The Ruiner is dead, head back to town to collect your reward. After that, the mission is complete and you’ve successfully finished the DLC.
Complete mission “Where It All Started”.
This is the fourth mission of the DLC. After meeting with Juno, it’s time to take Rose head-on. You’ll get a new device (The Telezapper) Which allows you to teleport between different Telezappers.
Spoiler: You make your way through a facility filled with guards. You have to stop the launch of firepower that’ll be used to help hatch The Ruiner. Near the end, there will be a mini-boss fight with Quartermaster and Oaken Wolf. You are unable to stop the launch and now Rose almost has the Ruiner hatched.
