Detailed walkthrough

Upon setting foot in the Cranberry Bog, head for a small bus stop northwest of the Watoga Civic Center to find a grisly sight of three raiders, two in cages, and the third one skewered with a note attached to the pike. Reading the note directs the player character to Watoga Towers a short distance to the east, near the Watoga Shopping Plaza. Head in, take the elevator to the third floor, and meet up with the lone survivor of Elizabeth Taggerdy's Brotherhood of Steel, Initiate Vernon Dodge.

Speaking with him, he explains that he received word that the Brotherhood First Expeditionary Force are on their way to Appalachia from New California, so he decided to lay the foundation for their arrival by securing some of Taggerdy's old outposts and clearing out some of the riff-raff through what he calls Daily Ops. The Vault 76 Vault Dweller can assist him. In fact, Dodge will not answer any deeper questions before they complete their first one.

Upon returning from completing one's first Daily Op, Dodge will offer a reward for the hard effort. He then reminds the player character that there will be another Daily Op first thing tomorrow before letting them leave, completing the quest.
