Detailed walkthrough

The sewers

As soon as the player enters the sewers, he will be greeted by an addict saying he was smuggled by one of the raider gang. He will warn the player about danger, then yell “get him!” as the player walks away. Raiders will come rushing and gun blazing, only to be killed by the player and Dan, who decided to join the fight and help the main character.

The search

Upon further exploration, a growl will be heard through the sewage system, making Dan entering dialogue to talk about Doomjaws and the water level problem.

Perk wild wastelandThe following is based on the Wild Wasteland trait and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Players with the Wild Wasteland trait will be warned by a weird man named Liam, wearing trousers and a baseball cap, that there is a huge doomja’ up ahead and that he needs cave fungus in order to gain the powers needed to defeat the “evil lizard king”. The Wild Wasteland icon will appear once the mushroom addict will be in sight, denoting the beginning of a Wild Wasteland event.

If given cave fungus, he will be seen throwing a grenade at Henshaw during the fight, only to be killed by the doomjaw’s bite.

Perk wild wastelandEnd of information based on the Wild Wasteland trait.

The part up ahead are flooded and the terminals need to be hacked in order to progress. Reaching the terminal, the player will encounter Lotus, Valerica’s gecko. The taming tutorial will start, making Lotus the player’s first pet. Upon taking care of the flood proplem, Dan will mention an invention of his designed to kill them. He will give the Taser box schematics to the player and urge them to create one in case they have to face the doomjaw. The components needed for the weapon are under lock in a nearby tool cabinet.

The beast

The next objective is acquired upon witnessing Zela, a madwoman, sacrificing a crippled raider named Chris to a young doomjaw named Henshaw seemingly trapped in a cylindrical pit in the sewers . Dan will tell the player they have to kill it. If he/she starts shooting the creature, Dan will add : “No, no, not that way, just throw the Taser box in the water down below. It’ll kill it pronto.” After killing the beast, Zela will be heard yelling “Ha! That was too easy to kill, eh? No experience points for you, dummy!”, that statement being the first time she breaks the 4th wall. Indeed, there is no experience earned after killing Henshaw the doomjaw. Lotus will then sniff the air and shake his head, making the current objective complete. The quest will be finished once the player exists the sewers.

The quest “Your princess is in another sewer” will start after that.
