The decision ultimately rests with you as to whether you can make a positive impact on the life of a diligent store owner by offering your assistance. Should you find yourself struggling to navigate this situation, rest assured that we are committed to leaving no stone unturned in guiding you towards the successful completion of this side mission in Starfield.
How to unlock the Mob Mentality mission
Before delving deeper into the details of how to unlock the Mob Mentality Side Mission in Starfield, let’s first address the critical prerequisites. Since this mission unfolds on Planet Neon, access to the planet is imperative.
You can arrive on Neon by either stumbling upon it randomly during your planetary exploration or by visiting it as part of the “All That Money Can Buy” mission within the Constellation’s questlines. Alternatively, if you’re following the Crimson Fleet’s Questline, your journey to Neon will coincide with the “Absolute Power” quest.
Returning to the primary point, you have two avenues to unlock the mission. The first approach is a bit elusive. You must locate a particular guard who discusses the figure known as Headlock, the individual you aim to confront. However, it’s important to note that the guard’s whereabouts are not fixed, and tracking them down might prove more time-consuming than the mission itself.
The alternative method involves simply entering The Emporium, a store within Neon. Once inside, engage in a conversation with Tevin Anastas, the store owner. During the course of your discussion, the name Headlock will naturally come up, triggering the initiation of the mission.

The crux of the matter is that Tevin is trying to run a business in Neon which is a hassle in itself. Neon with his newly-found friends from the Seokguh, a gang, visits often and causes a ruckus in his shop.
This is hurting Tevin’s business. You can be his knight in shining armor and save get Headlock to back off once and for all. This is how you can do it.
Gather information about Headlock
After your conversation with Tevin, during which he details the ongoing harassment by Headlock, your next step is to gather information regarding Headlock’s current whereabouts.
Following Tevin’s advice, make your way to Frankie’s Grab ‘N Go, a shop located in the Ebbside region of Neon. Upon entering, engage in a conversation with Frankie, who, like most denizens of Neon, may exhibit a hostile demeanor.
Inquire about Headlock, and on the initial attempt, she will likely decline to share information. However, there are two effective methods to extract the details: through either persuasion or bribery.
If you’ve invested a considerable number of points in persuasion, this task should prove relatively simple. For those who haven’t, offering 500 Credits should suffice. She will then disclose that Headlock and his fellow gang members frequently congregate in Warehouse 04.
With the information in hand about Headlock’s location, proceed directly to Warehouse 04, guided by the mission marker, which should lead you in the correct direction. It shouldn’t be a considerable distance from Frankie’s Grab ‘N Go. Upon entering, you’ll encounter Headlock on the lower level.
Initiate a conversation with him, and you’ll have two distinct approaches to handle the situation. You can opt for a peaceful resolution or a more aggressive one.
Option 1 – Persuade Headlock
Achieving this outcome hinges once more on the extent of your persuasion skill. You will have three opportunities to accumulate four points. Falling short will leave you with only one alternative – resorting to a violent confrontation. However, if you succeed in persuading him, Headlock will consent to cease bothering Tevin and instead attend to his own affairs.
Option 2 – Kill Headlock
The alternative course of action is a more aggressive one. You have the option to engage in combat with Headlock and his three Seokguh associates who are in his vicinity. Dispatching them should prove relatively straightforward.
Upon successfully dealing with them, return to The Emporium and deliver the favorable tidings to Tevin. His elation will be palpable, marking the successful conclusion of the Mob Mentality side mission in Starfield.
