To start this side quest you want to advance the story until you meet Avery in Episode 1 2005. Once you’ve met Avery speak to him outside the Clarkson Food Delivery Services building during the afternoon or the Park by the church during the evening. When you speak to him he will give the S.39 side quest to defeat 30 Red Shadows.

Red Shadows are an enemy type that appear in the open-world during the hours of 12:00 AM- 6:00 AM. These creatures spawn in groups of three. Simply head into the open-world at night and blast them away until you’ve killed 30 of them. These enemies should pose little to no problem as they are fairly weak and easy to run away from.

If you are having trouble defeating the Red Shadows a simple strategy you can use is to trigger a drum and stand in the safe circle it creates. Then simply shoot the enemies as they spawn with no chance of harm falling you.

Once you’ve defeated 30 Red Shadows advance time until you reach the next afternoon. Head back to Avery and talk to him. He will give you Thyme which is needed to complete another side quest called S.11 A Chef of Tradition.

    As a heads up, to get this quest, you need to be on Episode 1. Then go to the park by the cemetery on a saturday at 10 am to unlock this conversation with him! If you wait till Episode 2, it’ll lock you out of it. Only then can you go onto his second quest after completing this one to unlock the final item for the cooking quest, which becomes impossible if this isn’t done before episode 2. Happy questing!
