Stall the newts

Rikki will be unable to watch herself as she repairs the power pole, so you need to cover her from the newts perched on the rooftop. Look up and snipe them to draw their attention. Once they notice you, some will jump down to pester you. Flank them or use melee to hold them off. You have to constantly check on Rikki since the remainder of the newts will attack her.
