Fallout 76's Wastelanders update is now live, making Appalachia more lively with the introduction of the long-awaited human NPCs. But where there's humans, there's trouble, which is why players will have to embark on new quests, like Hunter fo Hire.
To make sure you don't run into issues with the Wastelander update's main story, here's everything you need to know in order to complete Fallout 76's Hunter for Hire quest.
Fallout 76 Hunter for Hire Quest
The Hunter for Hire quest starts after you complete Wayward Souls and first tasks you with building a sign at your C.A.M.P to draw in Free Radicals. You can also complete two optional objectives now.
The first one can be completed by first talking to Mort, listening to his holotapes then building your C.A.M.P.
A second optional objective tasks you with building a Weapons Workbench in your C.A.M.P. To do so, you'll need 6 pieces of aluminum, 3 gears, 3 pieces of rubber, 3 screws and 4 pieces of wood.
Regardless of whether you choose to do the two objectives above, you'll need to build the Crane’s Treasure Hunting sign at your C.A.M.P in order to complete Fallout 76's Hunter for Hire quest.
To do so, you first need to learn the note titled Plan: Crane Treasure Hunting Sign which tells you what components you'll need. Building the sign requires 1 piece of circuitry, 1 piece of copper, 2 pieces of plastic, 6 pieces of steel, 1 power.
Once you complete building the sign, the next step of the Hunter of Hire quest becomes available, tasking you with loading a holotape in a nearby radio tower.
The radio tower will be marked on your map, so head there and interact with the Emergency Management console within.
Instead of selecting the options on the screen, press R, select the Broadcast tape from the list and activate the Transmitter connection.
With the Broadcast Tape loaded into the radio tower, head back to the sign you build earlier and wait for Free Radicals to appear.
Interact with them and choose between using luck, strength, or brute force to deal with them. Either way, you'll learn the whereabouts of the gang's hideout.
With the new information in your possession, head back to the Duchess to move to the next step of Fallout 76's Hunter for Hire quest.
Although both the Anchor Farm and Tyler County Fairgrounds objectives are labeled as optional, they're very much worth doing.
Speaking with Daniel at Anchor Farm reveals the bandit hideout's password: Blue Danube, provided you can pass an easy strength, charisma or perception check. Letting him know you plan on killing bandits will result in him offering you some items.
The Scrapper at Tyler County Fairgrounds will give you a quest to return an egg which is rewarded with 3 Stealth Boys that could give you an advantage when entering the bandit hideout.
You'll find the bandits at West Virginia Lumber Company. Once there, you can use the password to enter the camp peacefully at which point you get to decide whether you'll kill Roper, the bandit leader, or convince him to leave the Wayward alone.
If you decide to kill him, using the Stealth Boys can make your life easier. Convincing him to leave the Wayward alone, although the more peaceful option, requires 8 or more charisma or strength.
Alternatively, you can also join the bandits in their search for the treasure. Regardless of your choice, the final step involves reporting back to Duchess.
