Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Find the Quarantine Robot was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.[1]


In talking to/about Chagas, you hear that he was being chased by a "metal bug" in the wastelands when the tribals found him (he calls it a robot because he spent some time incarcerated and knows what it is, but the other primitives don't). The Blackfoots that saw the pursuit were able to take it out with some lucky shots from their precious zip guns and pipe rifles. It's still sitting out there in the wasteland, and one of the raiders who saw it can lead you there for a price.

Character type completion breakdownEdit

  1. CombatBoy - Can steal ammo from it.
  2. ScienceBoy - Can loot it for parts, or stumble across it accidentally with a high enough Outdoorsman skill.
  3. DiploBoy - Can negotiate a better price for the guiding.

Regular JournalEdit

1 Chagas told me that when he was returning to the village a robot chased him and was barely defeated by some lucky shots from a group of Blackfoot slavers. The robot is probably still out there.
2 I talked to Mary Green-Eyes who saw the robot (she called it a "metal scorpion") chasing Chagas, and he agreed to take me there for the right price.
3Icon checkMary Green-Eyes took me to the location of the downed robot that followed Chagas.

Dumb JournalEdit
