The west entrance to the missile base consists of the Hopeville women's barracks (accessible through detonating a warhead) and a decrepit gas station to the northwest. In the gas station is a workbench, two toolboxes, a metal box, and a floor safe behind a pile of large tires. To the northeast is the Hopeville Missile Base Headquarters, guarded by few marked men. There is a RALPHIE poster on the wall in the gas station next to the workbench, for the Feel Like a Kid Again challenge.
Upon exiting the Hopeville missile silo bunker for the first time, Ulysses will speak to the Courier through ED-E, and depending upon the Courier's responses, a flag may be completed for the Most Likely To... challenge: Choosing the Perception option, pass or fail, will trigger a completion flag.
