Quest stages[edit | edit source]
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Brotherhood squire will fast travel with the player character, so one does not have to worry about the squire being left behind.
- The Brotherhood squire cannot be killed or harmed and will be ignored by most enemies, though there are some exceptions to the latter:
- The squire can be chased down by synths, while if the player character is still on good terms with the Institute, they will ignore the player character.
- Brian Virgil's turrets and Protectron will also fire at the Brotherhood squire.
- Paladin Danse will attack the squire if Blind Betrayal has been completed. If he is at a settlement and the player character travels to it with the squire, he will attack and most likely cause the rest of the settlers and other companions to attack as well. Again, the squire will not be harmed and will go for cover. Leave the area to stop the attack.
- If the squire is taken to the USS Constitution, they may be attacked by the robot crew.
- If one has the Wasteland Workshop add-on, the Brotherhood squire may sometimes be chased by caged animals at a settlement.
- If the quest Tactical Thinking has been given, speaking to Captain Kells on the Prydwen command deck will advance that quest instead of Leading By Example. In such case, an active squire quest cannot be completed without also antagonizing the Railroad.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- PC Xbox One When doing Leading by Example on normal and being told to go to Bedford Station to clear all hostiles with the squire, you can clear all the hostiles and the quest won't end. When changing the time to evening so that new hostiles might appear, killing them still does not end the quest. The only fix is to load a save that was before you picked up this quest line. [verified]
- PC Playstation 4 Xbox One Sometimes after completing the story for the Brotherhood of Steel, Lancer Captain Kells will ask you to inform him when you are ready to head out with another squire endlessly, preventing you from ever doing this quest again. After choosing the peaceful option on the quest A Loose End and completing it, Kells will get bugged and these radiant quests cannot be received anymore. [verified]
- setstage c8675 0 after he bugs out will fix this and make it so Kells will give the quest again.
- PC Whenever you talk to all the squires it does not progress. [verified]
- PC Playstation 4 Sometimes the game will crash upon entrance to College Square, making the quest impossible to complete. Consequently, the Brotherhood squire will continue to follow the player for the remainder of the game, making Institute quests with X6-88 impossible to complete as X6-88 will become hostile to the Brotherhood squire. [verified]
- PC When sent to University Point the area may already be clear making it impossible to complete the quest.
- setstage c8675 30 advances the quest and possibly is a fix to the College Square bug as well. [verified]
- PC Xbox One You may be tasked with clearing University Point of synths when friendly with the Institute, meaning the synths in the area are not hostile. This makes it impossible to progress with the mission. Compounding this, if your active main story quest is Synth Retention, you cannot progress with the main story as the Courser will endlessly fire upon the squire.[verified]
