Reward: 30 caps per location

Detailed walkthroughEdit

After completing the quest Reilly's Rangers and offering Reilly your help with their mapping service, she will give you a geomapper module. As long as you have the module in your inventory Reilly will pay you 30 caps per location (maximum of 4,890 caps) every time you return to the Ranger compound and talk to her. (You do NOT need to carry the module everywhere; you just need it when talking to Reilly.)


  • It is possible to exploit the Explorer perk to quickly capitalize on this quest, despite the fact that locations revealed with the Explorer perk are not technically discovered.
  • Reilly will not accept locations from add-ons.
  • If all the rangers die during the Reilly's Rangers quest, this quest cannot be started. Attempting to initiate dialogue with Reilly will fail.
  • You cannot turn in D.C. Metro maps (which are downloaded from select Metro terminals) to Reilly.
  • Two locations require the Lawbringer and Contract Killer perks.

She will say that the Rangers already know about all of the locations you have and will give you nothing. If this happens, try immediately talking to her again. You can also try dropping the geomapper module and picking it back up, then speaking with Reilly again. If she still won't pay you for the locations you have already discovered, try leaving the Ranger compound and re-entering before speaking to her again. Another alternative is to simply seek out at least one new point of interest and then return. [verified]

When you wake her up, she will say that she already has all those locations and will not pay you. This can be fixed by reloading a previous save. [verified]
