In our case, the androids were in the largest circle - the roof of the building that can be accessed by following the stairs and jumping through holes in the ceilings. If there are no androids there, go to the area next to the Abandoned Factory - check out the area under the damaged bridge.

You will face androids 22B and 64B. It is worth noting that they are much more agile and better at close-quarters combat than the machines. Use perfect dodges, or use Pod's ranged attacks. The weakened androids will escape.

You will find them again in the red circle marking the defeated Goliath - NieR Automata: Bunker - walkthrough, side missions - Side missions - NieR Automata Guide

After winning the fight, get to the Resistance Camp and talk about deserters with Anemone. The quest ends when you receive a call from the command.
