Secure the Area was one of the Galactic Ranger missions of Operation: IRON SHIELD on planet Marcadia. It involved defending the Galactic President's office, driving all the Tyhrranoids out of the compound, then defending the area against a series of brutal attacks long enough to allow the Rangers to establish a defensive position. The reward for completing this mission was 3000 bolts.
The best weapon for completing this mission easily may be the N60 Storm. Simply shoot the weapon against every enemy from a distance so the Ranger troop doesn't get attacked.
