They killed Pugsley, my donkey and they threatened to kill me if I ever dare to come back.”— Irwin, about the raiders

|Reward: 500 XP, +2 Reputation, .223 pistol|
Irwin is a refugee living in the Hub. He can be found near Bob's Iguana Bits stand and Beth's weapon store in the Downtown area. If the player talks to him, he will tell them about his problem concerning raiders who invaded his farm. He asks the Vault Dweller to get rid of all the raiders on his property by any means necessary.
If the Vault Dweller agrees to the quest, they'll be transported to Irwin's property (not marked on the map). To complete the quest, the player needs simply to kill all of the raiders in Irwin's house. There are a total of seven moderately armed and armored enemies, each wearing either leather armor or jackets. Overall the raiders aren't excessively powerful, but can swarm the Vault Dweller and overwhelm a low-level character, which is likely what warranted the minimum level requirement.
- 500 XP
- .223 pistol
- +2 Reputation
- Ability to loot metal armor and some stimpaks inside the farmstead.
- Once the Vault Dweller leaves the farm, they won't be able to return there, even if they killed the raiders.
- If the Vault Dweller has not reached level 5, they will not be able to accept this quest. They will be told by him to come back when having "more experience under your belt".
- The route from the Hub to the farm takes 10 full days, and the way back takes the same, so mind this when running out of time.
