Looking through the video, this location looks almost exactly the same as Quarry. However, the difference is that there are no raiders. What should we do? ☢ Energy X ☣ 19:29, November 5, 2015 (UTC)

Bug ConfirmationEdit

I can confirm the LOD overlay bug for this area. Many A True Nerd encountered it during his playthrough. Proof here: --Andrea Grey (talk) 22:40, November 14, 2015 (UTC)


How much time is needed to pass before the quarry is drained? Someone care to do some testing/ waiting around after finishing the quest so we can have definitive data?

The article mentions 24 hours, but I'm not sure if that is in game hours or 24 playing hours 02:25, January 2, 2016 (UTC)

Pretty much everything on the wiki is measured in game time. If it were 24 real hours, it would be a really long time before it drained because the game would have to be running and the focus of the computer (no browsing the internet) for it to measure. --Xernoc (talk) 02:30, January 2, 2016 (UTC)

Draining Water BugEdit

I can confirm the instant draining of the quarry.

I used aquaboy to be able to swim to the bottom but it also works if you swim to the far side (the ledge above the cave where Sully spawns)

Water Not DrainingEdit

I've waited about a week in-game after doing the quest, including 24 hours in the trailer next to it, and it still won't drain. Not really sure why. --AleximMose (talk) 23:48, March 25, 2016 (UTC)

You have to be away from the map zone, not in it, for it to drain. If you've completed Pull the Plug, then go far away (for example Sanctuary) and wait before coming back. It may also require some real time to pass as well as game time, so go do a couple quests etc. Cattlesquat (talk) 15:55, March 26, 2016 (UTC)

Interior and SullyEdit

The article lists an interior cell, which does exist in-game, but is unfinished with nothing in it and no way to reach it outside the console (tested via coc ThicketExcavations01). Additionally, it mentions that Sully will be seen as the raider leader, which I've never encountered in half a dozen play-throughs despite re-visiting this location repeatedly after it has been drained. I'm guessing this is based on inaccurate early game guide information (the latest makes no reference to him ever appearing again once the quest has been completed). Can anyone confirm these issues and remove the references from the article? -- DeJuanNOnley (talk) 03:26, June 27, 2016 (UTC)

I have not started a playthrough in a while but if my memory serves me will I had to fight Sully and his raider friends a couple days after I drained the water. I remember it because I had doubts about the wiki saying Sully would reveal himself to be a raider. I could be wrong though since it was a couple months ago. As for the location I'll mark it as cut content because I'm not sure it should be outright deleted if its in the game files. --YODIcon ink container 04:11, June 27, 2016 (UTC)
On my 2nd playthrough: I confirm Sully Mathis is the raider leader that will be present at the bottom of the drained carry. I guess an unnamed raider leader will take his place once the raiders respawn. --YOD °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖° 22:27, January 5, 2017 (UTC)
