Nuclear Family is the final Institute main quest and achievement/trophy in Fallout 4.

Walkthrough Edit

Return to the Institute to speak with Father and listen to his final words before he dies of end stage cancer. Shown next is the ending scene, showing glimpses of the player character's life prior to the Great War and their experiences since.

This short quest completes the Institute questline. The player character may continue their adventures in the Commonwealth afterward.

  • Once this quest is completed, Father's memorial will appear in the Institute, and Institute synths will patrol the Commonwealth's military checkpoints.
  • If the player kills Father before his natural death, the player will become enemies with the Institute, and this quest will still complete.
