Oh, thank God! I didn't think I'd ever see another human face down here.”— Private Halford
|Unmarked Quest: Help for Halford|
|Go to Guardian Peak at Camp Guardian.|
|Enter the cave and find Pvt. Halford.|
|Lead him out of the cave.|
|Reward: Halford's note|
Dog tag fist schematics
Upon entry to Camp Guardian the Courier will receive a radio broadcast containing word of Halford's problems. There will be 3-4 radscorpions on the mountain path and several giant rats near the camp itself. After finding Halford's tent, there is a journal piece nearby telling the Courier of the cave behind their tent. In the entrance there is a crate with several C-4 plastic explosives and a 9mm pistol. No lakelurks should be found on the way to Halford.
When Halford is found in the caves, the player character may notice a blood puddle near his leg. Having a doctor's bag or medicine skill of 50 will allow the Courier to heal his leg. Upon exiting he will give his rifle in full condition and a note with schematics for the dog tag fist and tell the Courier to take the note to his superiors.
- The Camp Guardian distress call has no set order of messages, which means the player may hear the same thing two or three times in a row.
- If all lakelurks are killed and all four dogtags are collected first, then talk with Halford, he will thank the player, but some cases there will be no opportunity to heal his leg and he will stay in the cave indefinitely.
- Halford has a tendency to attempt exit via the underwater cave in Lake Mead. If you had entered via Camp Guardian, this will most likely result in his death.
