All the good stuff on here's going to be encrypted, so the first job is to see if I can crack it. After that, well, I'll have to see what I've got. There's no telling what we might have grabbed off their mainframe.”— Sturges

Once the Sole Survivor is teleported into the Institute, they should go forward until they reach a terminal. It will be facing the opposite way of the direction they came in through. Access the terminal and insert the network scanner. Pick the option to scan the network, and after the scan is complete, the holotape should automatically return to the player's inventory upon leaving the terminal. Now, all that's left is to return to Sturges back in Sanctuary Hills. Returning to Sanctuary Hills before scanning the network at the Institute will not be an option.
- Piper likes this action.
- Deacon dislikes this action and both Danse and X6-88 hate this action.
- If Outside the Wire has already been completed, one will need to go get the network scanner holotape back from Proctor Ingram aboard the Prydwen, or Boston Airport if they have completed From Within.
- xboxone ps4 pc Proctor Ingram may not give the holotape back. On PC Version a fix is to open the console, click on Proctor Ingram and type "drop 136331 1" to force her to drop it out of her inventory. It is possible for console users to pickpocket to retrieve it. [verified].
- pc xboxone If using an Xbox controller on a PC the on screen instructions to press X to insert the holotape are wrong. The correct instruction should be press A to insert the holotape and X to remove it. Rules minded people can appear to be stuck in the Institute if trying to follow the instructions.
