|Radiant quest: (Location name): Deadliest Catch|
|Accept settler's proposal to hunt the giant hermit crab.|
|Follow settler to location.|
|Kill the hermit crab found at that location.|
One can get this quest from any settler at one of the Sole Survivor's settlements. While in the settlement, the player character will be approached by a random settler who informs them that a giant hermit crab has been spotted in the area and they'd like the Sole Survivor's help killing it. If one chooses to accept, the settler will then lead the player character to one of the five locations on the island where a hermit crab can spawn.
Upon reaching the location, the Sole Survivor will need to find and kill a leveled hermit crab. The crab stays hidden in its "shell" (a ruined bus or trailer), but can still be targeted in V.A.T.S.
- The chosen spawn location may be on the opposite side of the island. If one fast travels or otherwise loses the settler, they will normally wait for the player character at the location before attacking the crab.
- If one has already killed the hermit crabs at each spawn location, a new one should spawn at the chosen location.
- All settlers at the settlement will run to the location of the hermit crab, including any assigned as provisioners. If the settlement is larger, that will make the battle considerably easier.
Behind the scenes
The name of the quest is a reference to the television series that started in 2005 called Deadliest Catch.
