Quest stages[edit | edit source]

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.
