Talk to any of the four kids playing before the Wright Estate. Ask him why he is wearing a pot on his head and what game they are playing and he will say they are imitating "metal people" that come from "metal insects" they have seen in the desert.
Bribe him with an unloaded pistol (the cheapest pistol you have will be taken) to show you where they saw them and follow him. You will find yourself hiding behind the boxes peeking at Salvatores trading with Enclave soldiers. Stay put until the transaction is over to receive the reward. Then leave without anyone noticing you.
- If you follow the kids while Help guard a secret transaction taking place in the desert is active, you will not receive the reward. Instead, that will count as guarding the transaction and if you've already talked to Mason, the Chosen One will be at the usual guard's position. [verified]
- Upon returning to the Wright estate, four pools of blood at the place where the children were playing can be seen.
- If you let anyone notice you at the secret site, the secret trade will be disrupted and you won't be able to help guard the transaction — Mason would say that the deal was canceled (if you somehow manage this without making Salvatores hostile in the first place). [verified]
