|Give back the holotape to Proctor Ingram.|
|Reward: 300+ XP|
|Leads to: Liberty Reprimed|
Detailed walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Access the terminal at the Institute relay area and entrance then insert the network scanner holotape to extract the data. From here, simply continue the rest of the main quest Institutionalized. Return to Proctor Ingram and give her the data.
This holotape may also have been given by and can be given to another faction, for example, to Sturges of the Minutemen as part of Inside Job. If so, then before giving it to Proctor Ingram at Boston Airport, the Sole Survivor will first need to retrieve it by asking for a copy of the holotape while this quest is selected in Pip-Boy. Maxson may remind the player character of the need to complete the turn-in to Proctor Ingram but he will not remind them from whom they need to recover it first. Whatever quest path is taken, Quinlan will get to work on analyzing the data.
Quest stages[edit | edit source]
Notes[edit | edit source]
- If Mass Fusion is in progress, the player character has the option to warn the Brotherhood. If they do not wish to warn the Brotherhood, they cannot complete this mission because conversation choice automatically forces them to tell the Brotherhood.
- The player character may randomly get attacked after retrieving the holotape. However, this does not carry on to all synths or affect the standing with the Institute should the Sole Survivor join them.
- Having built the teleporter during The Molecular Level with the help of Proctor Ingram is not essential in order for this quest to start. After having returned from the Institute, the player character can simply talk to Elder Maxson, which triggers From Within alongside this quest.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- PC Having Gage as a companion may cause Proctor Ingram to ask you to follow her after completing this quest, as she is supposed to, but she won't go anywhere. Liberty Reprimed will be started but she will only have non-quest dialogue. If this happens, reload a save and dismiss Gage before giving Ingram the holotape.[verified]
- PC Sometimes Proctor Ingram will not do anything after the quest has been completed, and the Liberty Reprimed quest will not start.[verified]
- PC If you have started the Spoils of War quest and Proctor Ingram is already on the Vertibird, the Sole Survivor will not be able to give her the holotape.[verified]
- PC If you give Proctor Ingram the holotape before speaking to Maxson she might not start Liberty Reprimed and will instead just have non-quest dialogue.[verified]
