The Drifter is a hostile wastelander who can be found in Dickerson Tabernacle Chapel in 2277.[1]

Background

The Drifter was cast out from the Treeminders long ago, and forced to eke out an existence hunting mutated wildlife and stealing from hapless wastelanders. Due to the yao guai prowling the vicinity, the Drifter has wisely decided to snipe from the safety of a high spire, where he dimly remembers his time with Harold's friends.[2]

He carries the unique Reservist's rifle.

Daily schedule

The Drifter spends his days standing guard on the chapel's top floor attacking anything that gets close.

    Sitting on a blasted heath are the remains of a once-thriving Tabernacle Church, now a dilapidated shell that's home to a Drifter, standing on the old roof supports. Sneak in the back to ambush him; knock him off his perch to secure the items he's carrying. The Reservist's Rifle and Oasis Coordinates are of interest, especially the rifle for long-range Deathclaw take-downs. The Oasis Coordinates and the Druid's Hood indicate that the Drifter may once have been part of the Treeminders. Check the Oasis Coordinates (LAT -03/LONG 28), and search the area for the following items:"
