A robot named Pennington was waiting outside of Vault 76 -- it might know where the Overseer went, or what is happening in Appalachia.

First Contact is a main quest in Fallout 76.

Quick walkthrough

Detailed walkthrough

During Wayward Souls, accept the job from Duchess to receive the overseer's holotape. Listen to the holotape and follow the road southwest to Flatwoods. Expect to find a few mongrels and mole rats along the way, maybe a hostile Mr. Farmhand. Once there, head into the church that served as the headquarters for the Responders to find another holotape to listen to in the Overseer's cache there. To conclude the quest, head over to the tavern opposite the church and register as a volunteer with the Responders at one of the registration terminals there.

StageStatusDescriptionLog Entry
? Track down the OverseerA robot named Pennington was waiting outside of Vault 76 -- it might know where the Overseer went, or what is happening in Appalachia.
? Find the Overseer's C.A.M.P.The Overseer set up a C.A.M.P. south of the Vault. If I follow the road, I can probably locate it. Would be logical to set it up near the river, so I should head towards that intersection.
? Listen to Overseer's Log - C.A.M.P.
? Find the Overseer in FlatwoodsThe Overseer moved on to a town called Flatwoods. Thankfully she left me with some supplies, including a C.A.M.P. of my own. If I follow the road and head south, I should find her there.
? (Optional) Tune Pip-Boy radio to the Responders' Signal
? Listen to Overseer's Log - FlatwoodsThe Overseer was here, that's for sure. Found another one of her holotapes in the Flatwoods Church. Looks like this place is deserted.
? Register as a VolunteerThe Overseer recommended I become a Volunteer for the Responders to get some basic training. They may be gone, but they did know how to live for a while. I should see what I can discover in their old systems.
?Quest finishedAfter leaving Vault 76, I set out for the nearby town of Flatwoods to look for the Overseer. I found evidence of a group called the Responders that was helping the people in the region to survive, and I registered as a Volunteer to access their systems.
