Ghoul Problem at (Location Name) is a Minutemen radiant quest in Fallout 4.

Quick walkthroughEdit

Minutemen radiant quest: Ghoul Problem
Speak to the leader of the settlement.
Travel to the infested location.
Eliminate the feral ghoul target, usually a glowing one.
Report your success to the leader of the settlement.
Reward: ~100 caps
Report your success to Preston Garvey.
Reward: 200 XP

Detailed walkthroughEdit

This quest can be started randomly when speaking to Preston Garvey, listening to Radio Freedom, or talking to the settler "in charge" of the settlement.

  1. Listen to the radio, talk with settlers or talk to Preston Garvey to get the quest.
  2. Speak to the contact in the settlement.
  3. Clear the feral ghouls from a random location. The Sole Survivor only needs to clear the targeted ghoul, usually a glowing one, to complete this objective.

Failure to kill the targeted ghoul in a timely manner will result in the failure of the quest.

  1. Return to the contact in the settlement and inform them of your success.
  2. (Optional) If the quest was started with Preston or Radio Freedom, return to Preston Garvey. If one decides to skip this step, the Experience Points will not be earned right away but a couple days later, when the quest is supposed to expire.

If the settlement is already under the player characters control then they will receive 100 caps as a reward, else they will win the control of the settlement.

  • pcIcon pc xboxoneIcon xboxone If the player character is sent to kill the feral ghouls at Fiddler's Green, Super Duper Mart or Mass Pike Tunnel if it has already been cleared, a quest marker may not appear. Killing all the feral ghouls in that location may not update the quest. If this occurs, allowing time to pass until the quest fails may be the only way to complete it.[verified]
