You can leave the River Hideout the way you came, or continue south through the cave network until you reach another exit to the northwest of Edgewater. Tread carefully if you choose to emerge from here, as this exit puts you directly beneath a band of Primals, led by a Primal Behemoth. If you choose to challenge them, the Behemoth will provide new players with a rude introduction to N-ray attacks.
Talk to Max
Return to Max at the OSI Church in Edgewater and offer him the Journal of M. Bakonu. You should now be able to recruit Max as a companion in the ensuing dialog choices.

Once players acquire the necessary Power Regulator however way they choose, Max can be found inside The Unreliable.
A self-styled run of the mill vicar with a “violently enthusiastic” disposition, Max brings the Trickshot ability to the party. When ordered to do so, this Ability can knockdown enemies and weaken them to all sources of Energy-based Damage (Plasma, Shock, Corrosion, and N-ray). Max’s unlockable Perks meanwhile include passive boosts to the Player’s Hack skill, as well as +20% Dialog Combat Effect Duration and +20% Science Weapon Damage for the entire party.
