Detailed walkthrough

This is similar to the previous Butcher's Bill quest except instead of finding the status of a place, one will be tasked with learning the status of a person named Agent Blackbird. Speak to Doctor Carrington for the assignment. The first destination is another dead drop at a random location. The information from the dead drop will lead to a random safehouse. Inside, one will find what remains of Blackbird. Pick up Blackbird's belongings and return to Doctor Carrington to make a report and close the quest.

It is possible to find Blackbird in one of the potential safehouses before recovering the dead drop. In this case, the previous objective would be marked as accomplished and the new objective would be to directly report to Doctor Carrington.
