You are supposed to land on this location and farm metal material to a fixed amount of 200. This might seem like a low amount considering the sources of metal in this location are abundant. Do consider farming the electrical machines out of the factory. Every machine is made of metal inside the factory as well, so reaching the number of 200 wouldn't be a hard feat.

But what does make this task hard is that fact that other players will also be landing at the same location to complete the challenge. Make sure to grab a weapon first after landing, and try to eliminate every enemy you hear or see, as this will make sure there is enough metal left for you to farm and complete your challenge.

You will get 35,000 XP after farming the required number of metal and completing this challenge. This reward can also help unlock new items. Here is a video guide for the same challenge:
