Detailed walkthrough

Upon acquiring the quest, the Sole Survivor must travel to a marked location in the Commonwealth. Once there, they will be required to kill a marked target. The Sole Survivor can kill them outright or ask them to follow them to a hidden location so they can be disposed of quietly.

  • If the Sole Survivor kills the target in front of others, even while hidden, friendly NPCs in the area turn hostile in reaction to the death.
  • There is no way to complete the quest without killing the targeted NPC.
