|Head to the unnamed location and collect the blueprints.|
|Head back to the Institute and talk to Evan Watson.|
|Reward: 350 XP|
*4 fusion cells
Speak with Evan Watson of the Institute Advanced Systems section. He will tell the Sole Survivor he is impressed with the Brotherhood of Steel's technology and that the Institute could learn a lot from it. He will then proceed to ask the player character to go to the surface and find some blueprints for him, advising that there is a small Brotherhood salvage team that has some of these blueprints, thus being the target.
Upon arrival at the location, a small team of Brotherhood members will be guarding the blueprints, who will become hostile when attempting to retrieve them. Kill them, retrieve the plans, and return to the Institute. When handing them to Watson, he can be convinced with a Speech check to give a reward, which if successful, will be four fusion cells.
