The item is actually chosen and spawned as soon as the quest becomes available, rather than when it is accepted. As a result it is possible to obtain the tech item at a location prior to receiving the quest from Scribe Haylen. If this happens, one can talk to Haylen to get the quest for the location and then immediately turn it in.


  • PCPC It is possible that the random radiant mission generator might send the Sole Survivor to a previously cleared location, which will make the required item impossible to recover because enemies and chests didn't respawn. When looking at the Pip-Boy map marker, the marker will point directly at the player character, wherever they are. Spawning the required item via console command will not advance the quest. However, using setstage 000c30dc 40 will allow the quest to advance forward. The console code works and sets quest to "Report to <quest-giver>".[verified]
  • PCPC Playstation 4Playstation 4 Xbox OneXbox One The mission generator may place the item before the next quest is accepted (likely triggered by completing the previous quest). The item cannot be removed until accepting the next quest, at which point it can be handed over.[verified]
  • PCPC Playstation 4Playstation 4 If this quest has been started and is at the 'Report to Scribe Haylen' stage, one will not be able to turn in the mission if the mission Blind Betrayal has already been started and the Sole Survivor is required to speak to Scribe Haylen. When she is spoken to, she will not talk about the Quartermaster mission, only saying "I'm sure you'll do the right thing." in reference to the Blind Betrayal mission.[verified]
  • PCPC Playstation 4Playstation 4 Xbox OneXbox OneThis quest will sometimes send the player character to Far Harbor prior to the start of Far From Home as well as Nuka-World prior to starting All Aboard for a radiant quest.[verified]
    • This can be fixed with the console command player.setstage 000c30dc 40 (see the note above), which sets the quest state to "Report to Haylen".
    • Alternatively, one can also use prid xx053FD7 (Rayburn Point) or prid xx0568CC (Zephyr Ridge) followed by moveto player to move the chest directly to the player. This can be useful if Haylen tries to repeatedly send the Sole Survivor to Far Harbor locations.
