Detailed walkthroughEdit

Arriving at the Nuka-station, RedEye will announce over the intercom that there is 'fresh meat' to run the gauntlet.

The first room in the Gauntlet is filled with a range of machinegun and laser turrets. After dealing with or running through, the next room is filled with tripwire traps. These can be avoided by picking a Master lock to the left, but otherwise disarming them works as well. Heading up the stairs leads to a selection of three doors.

The right-most door has a grenade bouquet that drops on opening, and the middle one has a Jangles cymbol toy sitting on a gruesome display. The left door has a passage behind it. The next room is filled with radiation barrels. There is an alcove at the back of the room to the left where a rusty key can be picked up to unlock the next Expert-locked door with. Heading down leads to the Nuka-World access tunnels.

This room has ten turrets that will be activated by the Jangles cymbol toy. Destroying it will prevent the turrets activating, and will earn a disparaging comment from RedEye. Alternatively, they can be deactivated by a terminal.

The next room contains rad-rats and an animatronic alien turret. Following on from here is a tunnel filled with frag-mine trapped cars, leading to a mirelurk nest. The door on the other side of the fragile plank walkway is Expert-locked, but if picked, RedEye will react in surprise. Otherwise, dropping down and running up the small tunnel will be required. Following another passage filled with explosives, the next trap features gas spraying out from the ceiling, and radroaches. Using the terminal to open the security gates will shut off the gas.

Emerging through the door reveales ant mounds, and past them, RedEye will encourage the 'audience' to participate in attacking the player.

The final room is the Cola-cars arena, where Overboss Colter will be waiting. Once you enter the locker room, Gage will talk to you again, telling you to find a Thirst Zapper squirt gun in the lockers. Using it will short out Overboss's armor circuits, allowing you to hit him for a limited time. Removing the fusion core from the reactor in the back room will drop the power by 30%, aiding your chances of survival. Once he is dead, Gage will proclaim you the new Overboss, and explains that there are three raider factions at each others' throats that must be placated, and that you are the best person for the job.

Quest stagesEdit

StageStatusDescriptionLog Entry
100 Enter Nuka-World
200 Survive the GauntletA man named Porter Gage spoke to me over the Nuka-Express speaker system. He told me I was heading into a death trap, but he has an offer for me should I survive.
300 Enter the Locker RoomI survived the bulk of the Gauntlet. It looks like I have one more fight ahead of me. At least these Raiders are giving me a chance to restock in a locker room before I face off against this Overboss.
400 Use the IntercomAs I entered the locker room to prepare for my final battle, Gage's voice came over the intercom. I should speak to him and find out what he wants.
500 Find the weaponGage explained that the upcoming fight against the Overboss Colter is rigged, but he's left a "secret weapon" I can use to defeat him in the arena. I need to find it somewhere in the locker room.
550 Use the Intercom to speak to GageI found what looks to be a squirt gun called the Thirst Zapper in the locker room. This must be the "secret weapon" that Gage was talking about. There must be more to this.
600 Enter the Cola-Cars ArenaGage told me the Thirst Zapper will short out Overboss Colter's electrified Power Armor. I'll need to use it if I'm going to be able to do any damage to him at all. Now, it's time to enter the Cola-Cars arena and finish this.
700 Defeat Overboss ColterI need to defeat Overboss Colter in the Cola-Cars Arena to beat the Gauntlet and get out of here. In order to take him down, I'll have to use the Thirst Zapper first to make him vulnerable.
750 Use the Thirst Zapper
800 Speak to GageI defeated Overboss Colter. The Thirst Zapper worked. Now I need to speak to Gage to find out what kind of offer he has in mind.
