Clean up the lake.

Daily: Pass the Buck is a daily quest in Fallout 76. It was temporarily disabled on May 27, 2021.[1]

Quick walkthrough

  • Pick up the three barrels lying near Grafton Lake and dispose of them.
  • Optionally, sink the barrels in the lake with Agility 5.

Detailed walkthrough

To initiate the quest, head to Grafton Dam and receive a transmission from the Grafton mayor, instructing listeners to dispose of three toxic barrels. To do this, simply head around the lake and jump in to collect the three barrels, but before heading in, make sure to have anti-radiation chems such as RadAway.

With Agility 5, it is possible to get rid of the barrels on the spot. However, if the player character is under Agility 5, they will have to carry each barrel to a dumping site (either northwest of Hemlock Holes or northeast of Prickett's Fort) and place them in the dumpster. Whichever route is taken, disposing of the barrels will complete the mission.
