No kidding. If you're looking for another hand, I'll sign on. Better than spending the rest of my existence in this hellhole, right?


Recruit Katja is an unmarked quest in Fallout.

Quick walkthroughEdit

Side Quest: Recruit Katya
Speak with Katja.
Tell Katja you won't be staying for long.
Reward: 200 XP, Katja as a companion

Detailed walkthroughEdit

Katja can be found residing with the Followers of the Apocalypse in the Boneyard Library.

Unlike Ian, no money needs to be paid and no correct dialogue options need to be chosen; she will join the Vault Dweller's party if simply asked nicely to do so.



  • If the Vault Dweller has killed anyone in Shady Sands he will be unable to recruit Katja, as she will immediately be hostile.
  • Unlike Dogmeat and Ian, she isn't mentioned in the Vault Dweller's memoirs.
  • She can mark the location of the Cathedral on the Vault Dweller's map.
