Detailed walkthroughEdit

The Sole Survivor will periodically be told of Minutemen settlements which require help while listening to Radio Freedom or when speaking to Preston Garvey. When they arrive at the settlement, one of the settlers will tell them about the problems they are having and how the Sole Survivor can help them, beginning the quest. It is also possible to begin the quest without the Radio Freedom/Preston Garvey precursor if the Sole Survivor arrives at a settlement which requires help and speaks directly to one of the settlers there.

The Sole Survivor will need to travel to the location indicated by the settler and clear it of enemies. They must then return to the settlement and inform them of their success. If the quest was received from Radio Freedom or the settlement directly, it will completely automatically. If the quest was received from Preston, the Sole Survivor must return to inform him of their success before the quest will be completed.
