This is such a wild goose chase. Lost tech? Please. Only thing we're going to find in this tomb is canned peaches and moldy blankets.

Brotherhood outcasts are members of the Capital Wasteland Brotherhood of Steel splinter faction collectively known as the Brotherhood Outcasts. They operate in the Capital Wasteland in the year 2277.

Background

Brotherhood outcasts are equal to their Capital Wasteland Brotherhood of Steel counterparts in terms of equipment and combat skill, making them some of the deadliest combatants in the Capital Wasteland, second only to the soldiers of the Enclave. Their armor is in marginally worse condition than that of their Brotherhood counterparts, but not to an extent that makes any practical difference.

Brotherhood outcasts come in 3 different unofficial skill ranks, each equivalent to the initiate, knight, and paladin ranks of the main Brotherhood of Steel. They are neutral to the player character and other non-hostile wastelanders, albeit very rude and condescending. They will engage in combat against hostile wasteland creatures, raiders, and Enclave soldiers.

As an elitist group, the Brotherhood Outcasts are unable to increase their numbers with local recruits, unlike the Brotherhood itself. To compensate, they often supplement their squads with reprogrammed combat robots, such as robobrains or sentry bots. Outcast patrols in the Capital Wasteland typically consist of 3 Brotherhood outcasts, or 2 outcasts and a combat robot.

Locations

Outcasts can be found at their main base of operations, Fort Independence, which is manned by the main contingent of Brotherhood outcast soldiers. There is an Outcast detachment occupying an outpost in Bailey's Crossroads. Also, a moderate Outcast presence can be found in the vicinity of Fort Constantine and the SatCom Array NN-03d. Three outcasts will always be found outside Fort Constantine patrolling a rising path just off the road leading to the facility(in addition to any Outcasts that may spawn periodically near the main gate). Two pairs of outcast soldiers are always found near the SatCom Array; one pair patrols to its southwest near the remains of a metal shack, while another pair patrols northwest of the first, between the array and the fort.

Brotherhood outcast squads can be found patrolling the Capital Wasteland in various areas. These squads usually consist of three soldiers or two soldiers and a robot escort, and spawn as either part of 'Type B' random encounters or at preset patrol spawn points.

Outcast patrols

Outcast patrols will spawn near the listed locations at preset spawn points and are not random encounters. The 'wait' function can be used to force spawn patrol members if the patrol has left the area. Patrols members that are killed will not spawn again for 72 hours. The patrol members that appear at these preset points are the same ones as those that in the random encounter for 'Brotherhood Outcast Patrol (unique characters)'. Additionally, any member of a patrol that is injured will retain those injuries when spawned elsewhere.

Notes

  • Brotherhood outcasts patrolling the Capital Wasteland are considered evil. This means that they will not deduct Karma upon killing, and will potentially drop a finger for Lawbringers.
  • Karma is lost for destroying Outcast robots, or killing named Outcast members like Henry Casdin, unless they attacked first.
  • All Brotherhood of Steel members are hostile to Brotherhood Outcasts. Although their territory normally does not overlap, if the Broken Steel add-on is active it is possible for Brotherhood water caravans to meet and fight Outcast patrols, especially at Vault 101 and Fort Bannister. Likewise, if Star Paladin Cross is disbanded she will attack and most likely wipe out any Outcast forces she encounters on her way back to the Citadel.
  • It is possible to overhear unnamed Outcasts at the Outcast outpost considering defecting to Talon company, which apparently pays better than the Outcasts.
