Orelia will drop the shiny Golden Scar Assault Rifle once defeated. Be sure to loot anything you can from the island before taking her on, and bring a few friends if you attempt to fight her in the early game.

This area should be highly contested by players, which means you can hang back a bit and let them kill each other before taking on Orelia if you spot the opportunity to do so.
