Lightning Squad eventually make it to his Lander and confirm his death. Ops orders them to activate the transponder to transmit data. After transmitting the information for Ops, Lightning Squad then activates a self-destruction sequence which also activates a beacon designed to attract Ravagers. The Lander explodes, taking out a large group of Ravagers along with it.
He is later replaced by Sully, who sticks with the group for the rest of the mission.
