NotesEdit

If the player completes The Nuclear Option by using the Minutemen, one can activate this quest via the console command "setStage 00182EAE 10" on PC. The quest even acknowledges that the player sided with the Minutemen (and will grant rewards and complete it the same way as in the Brotherhood path), though it does not appear to trigger in normal game play. If the player uses the console to travel directly to Maxson the dialogue won't trigger. Instead, you need to travel to the Prydwen using the regular map marker which puts you on the Flight Deck. Then use the normal entrance doorway to the Command Deck (accessed from the Flight Deck).

BugsEdit

xboxoneIcon xboxone pcIcon pc ps4Icon ps4 Upon returning to The Prydwen, Elder Maxson may be residing in his personal quarters on the main deck rather than the bridge, making it impossible for his dialogue to advance any further, preventing the quest from being able to be completed. [verified]

  • pcIcon pc This problem can be rectified on PC by going to the bridge and using console commands to move Maxson to the player, use the "prid 0001cc18" command in the console to select Maxson, then use the function "moveto player". His dialogue should now proceed normally once he is in the area.
  • xboxoneIcon xboxone There's also a confirmed workaround for the Xbox One if you have a save prior to completion of The Nuclear Option. If you fast-travel immediately to the Prydwen from the roof of Mass Fusion, sprint directly to the Prydwen bridge, then sprint straight to Elder Maxson, it's possible to catch him for the mission dialogue just before he reaches the entry to the main deck, thereby enabling completion.
