- Repair Rover.
- Protect Rover as it completes repairs.
- Reboot "Scorched Detection Communications" protocol.
When the event appears on the map, head over to the relay tower to begin the quest. Right off the bat, focus on repairing Rover, the Free States Eyebot, so it can begin repairs on the communication uplink for the relay tower's Scorched Detection System, which takes five minutes to complete. During the process, Rover will be attacked by enemies, possibly robots, super mutants, or Scorched, and needs to be protected. If Rover is damaged, it needs to be repaired again to resume its own repair work, but there is only a minute to fix Rover before the quest is automatically failed for not repairing Rover in time and it retreats to its pod until the quest is available again. Once Rover has finished the repairs to the communication uplink, it will retreat to its recharging pod and return to sleep until the quest becomes active again at another relay tower that Rover's pod is found at. At that point, the player character needs to go inside the relay tower and use the terminal there that is used for calling in supply drops with the US government supply requisition holotapes to reboot the Scorched Detection System, completing the quest.
PC If Rover is damaged during the quest and subsequently repaired, the blue light may no longer line up with the front of the eyebot.[verification needed]
