  • Patrol Duty: The Warden can be spoken to at any time during this event quest, after it starts up when near the prison. The Warden needs someone to protect his penitentiary guard Protectron while it makes its rounds through either A-Wing, B-Wing, and the prison yard, or the prison yard, C-Wing (Solitary Confinement), and D-Wing.
  • Falsely Accused: After the quest is triggered from a random encounter with the Warden's Mister Gutsy prison marshals, the Warden will apologize for what happened and, as compensation, asks the player character to activate the turrets in the cell blocks, giving them the password needed to use the terminals to power up the turrets. Once complete, the Warden will reward the player character with the Civil Unrest, a one-star legendary pump-action shotgun, as thanks for their help.


The Warden appears only in Fallout 76.
