Detailed walkthroughEdit

It consists of collecting five holotapes located around the Capital Wasteland to gain entry into the National Guard depot armory bunker. However, one only needs to collect 4 out of the 5 transcripts to gain entry into the National Guard armory bunker. The tape that is not needed is Tape 1, which is found in the pylon shack. The switch to open the bunker doors is located on the top level of the depot. You will need to travel through the entire building and access the top level from the offices.

TapeEdit

LocationsEdit

Tape 1Edit

Main article: Pylon shack

Travel to the VAPL-58 power station, directly southwest of Arefu, then head north following the electric towers until you reach the pylon shack (it's more like a fenced-in area at the last electric tower), where you will find the tape on the bottom shelf of the bookcase.

This tape is NOT needed to enter the bunker; as it does NOT have one of the 4-digit code numbers. It simply provides backstory for this quest.

There is also a mini nuke and pre-War book at this location.

Tape 2Edit

Travel to Hallowed Moors Cemetery north of Big Town. Go in the front entrance of the church, and the second of five Keller family transcripts will be on the left on top of a lectern.

There is a captive inside, and a mini nuke on the table inside a wooden crate. There is also a Big Book of Science in the podium as well as a D.C. Journal of Internal Medicine on the shelves on the left before the captive.

Tape 3Edit

Main article: Grisly diner

Travel to the Grisly diner and head inside, then go to your right and out the back. The third Keller tape is located on a desk at the back (outside).

The Grisly diner is just north of The Temple of the Union or due North West of Canterbury Commons

There is a trap that swings from the ceiling activated by a pressure plate on the floor. There are raiders either in the diner or close by. There are also mines around the front and rear of the diner.

Tape 4Edit

Main article: Sniper shack

Travel to Rockbreaker's Last Gas, directly north-west from VAPL-58 power station. On top of a high cliff to the west, you will see the sniper shack, it's the location of the fourth of five Keller family transcripts. Make your way around the cliff on the southwest side of the cliff (there may be some super mutants/centaurs along the way). Inside the shack, the tape will be on the workbench on the left.

Tape 5Edit

Travel to Anchorage Memorial and head north-northwest. Across the river there is a semi-truck and a tent behind it. Inside the tent on the table is the fifth Keller tape, along with a wasteland captive.

There can be any type of super mutant (depending on the player's current level) and two centaurs there. A super mutant overlord only appears if you have the Broken Steel DLC.

RewardEdit

Access to National Guard depot bunker with a significant amount of notable loot such as:
