Quick walkthroughEdit

Unmarked Quest: Talk to Katrina
Go to Shady Sands.
Speak to Katrina.
End the conversation by asking her about everything.
Reward: 250 XP

Detailed walkthroughEdit

Katrina is the town greeter standing at the front entrance to Shady Sands. The likely intention of the developers of Fallout was to include her as a tutorial character, considering her dialogue is focused around explaining a few fundamental game-play systems, including bartering, healing, and the First Aid and Doctor skills.

This quest is very straightforward; exhausting all possible dialogue options with Katrina will yield an XP reward. Make sure to put your weapon away as she will not talk to a character armed with any weapon, since she encourages peace and diplomacy in the small community.



  • A Vault Dweller with poor Intelligence will not be able complete this quest as Katrina will not hold a conversation with a dumb character, simply stating that they are not competent enough to communicate. This ends her dialogue, and leaves the quest uncompletable.
  • A similar kind of quest exists in Fallout: New Vegas with Sunny Smiles, except there is no requirement stats or traits wise.
