Detailed walkthrough

Upon entering the Watoga Emergency Services building and going upstairs via the elevator, speak to the Mr. Gutsy acting as the Watoga police chief, and he will request that the player characters travel to a radiant location in the Cranberry Bog to take out the squatters at that location. The enemies can range from super mutants, to Scorched, to feral ghouls. As of Wastelanders, this can include Blood Eagles as well. Once the enemies have been dealt with, the chief will call the player characters to thank them for their assistance and to stop by his office in the future in case he needs their help again, completing the quest.
