I learned that a Responder scientist was developing an inoculation to protect against Scorched mutations. The work was being carried out in a laboratory at AVR Medical.
Search for an inoculation against the Scorched disease.

An Ounce of Prevention is a quest in Fallout 76.

BackgroundEdit

To survive against the Scorched Plague that spreads among the humans of Appalachia, the Responders attempted to create a vaccine years ago. The project was not successful at preventing their demise, but maybe Dr. Hudson left behind enough data to complete it and save the Vault 76 dwellers?

Quick walkthroughEdit

Main quest: An Ounce of Prevention
Access the terminal at AVR Medical Center.
Collect a Type-T Fuse from Greg's Mine Supply.
Collect a blood sample from a Mole Rat, a Feral Ghoul, and a Wolf.
Return to the AVR Medical Center and load the blood samples into the centrifuge.
Synthesize the vaccine using the terminal.
Enter the machine and inoculate yourself.
Reward: Legendary leather armor
Scorched plague inoculation

Detailed walkthroughEdit

  • After completing Final Departure, the next stop is Charleston and the AVR Medical Center. Hudson's lab is located in the south-western corner of the facility, in the basement (either drop down through the cafeteria floor or use the staircase by the street exit). Use the terminal to learn the story and that she almost completed her research - almost. The automatic software set up by the good doctor is set up to auto-create a vaccine from the DNA of mole rats, feral ghouls, and wolves to create a vaccine.
  • The players need to collect that and a Type-T fuse. The fuse can be found at Greg's Mine Supply, in the sealed-off store, in the storage room. Access can be gained by entering the basement of the building on the northern side of the road, then using the tunnel to enter the basement of the shop.
  • Each of the animals is located in the wilderness around Charleston: Mole rats are in the river bed, west of the Charleston trainyard, feral ghouls are found all over Charleston, mostly in the eastern parts and around the Capitol Building, while wolves are up the hill southeast of Charleston, up towards The Ash Heap.
  • Once the player has all four ingredients, they just need to get back to the AVR Medical Center and Hudson's lab, place the replacement fuse in the fuse box under the stairs, put the blood samples in the centrifuge by the AVR medical terminal, analyze them, then use the Sympto-Matic to inoculate themselves. Claire Hudson's recording will play, directing the player to the Fire Breathers of the Charleston Fire Department - or what's left of them.

? Collect a Type-T FuseI learned about the Responders' inoculation project at AVR Medical. To create the inoculation, I need to collect blood samples from a Mole Rat, a Feral Ghoul, and a wolf. I'll also need to find a Type-T fuse to repair the Sympto-Matic.
? Install the Type-T Fuse
? Collect a blood sample from a Mole Rat
? Collect a blood sample from a Feral Ghoul
? Collect a blood sample from a wolf
? Load blood samples into the centrifugeI learned about the Responders' inoculation project at AVR Medical. To create the inoculation, I need to load the blood samples I collected into the centrifuge and then run Dr. Hudson's analysis program.
? Analyze the blood samples
? Synthesize the vaccineI learned about the Responders Inoculation Project at AVR Medical. Now that I've run Doctor Hudson's program to analyze the blood samples I collected, I need to synthesize the vaccine.
?Icon checkUse the sympto-matic to administer the vaccineI learned about the Responders' inoculation project at AVR Medical. I was able to continue the project and create the vaccine. Now I need to use the sympto-matic machine to administer it to myself.

Behind the scenesEdit

The title is a reference to the famous Benjamin Franklin axiom that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," meaning that taking small steps to prevent a major problem is easier than dealing with the problem itself.

BugsEdit

PCIcon pc The map marker for the Type-T fuse may focus on an underground tunnel instead of the item. The item can be found in an explosives crate in the eastern storage room of Greg's Mine Supply.
