The Warwick homestead is a location and potential settlement in the Commonwealth in 2287.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

The Warwick homestead was once the Nut Island wastewater treatment plant‎ before the bombs fell. The Warwick family settled and they began a thriving farm and a relationship with the Atom Cats. At some point before 2287 Bill Sutton and Cedric Hopton joined the farm and Roger Warwick was replaced by a synth to start experimenting with crops. In 2287 Bill started to suspect Roger was a synth.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The homestead once served as a waste treatment plant but is now host to a small family farming operation. Resources present include 23 tato plants, 11 mutfruit, 5 gourds, a water pump, and a cooking station. None of the beds are usable by the player character unless allied with the settlement. The only unowned container one can use without allying, other than the cooking station, is a tool chest in the tank service building.

There is a hardened primary structure containing sleeping quarters for the residents as well as a secondary building that contains an elevated walkway that leads to two large processing tanks. This walkway grants access to a service building between the two tank structures.

The elevated walkway that passes over the first (northeast) processing tank is broken, making it difficult to access the tank service building. It can be reached by jumping either from a forklift located directly beside the second (southern) tank, or by carefully performed jumps off of the handrail on the broken walkway, or by swimming in the first tank and jumping up the I-beams onto the walkway by the service building. Alternatively, once the settlement workshop has been unlocked, a walkway can be constructed.

There is an arrangement of a Giddyup Buttercup with a teddy bear riding it, that is wearing a sea captain's hat, located between the small service building and the first processing tank on the ocean side.

There is also an arrangement of three wooden blocks forming the word BYE next to some dried flowers; a toy rocketship and toy alien are stuck together with duct tape on a wooden crate on the northern end of the site under the broken metal walkway. It is not possible to move the toys or crate only steal/loot or scrap them. When looted the toys separate along with the duct tape for looting and the crate can then be moved. Underneath the crate is a gold plated flip lighter.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In order to gain Warwick homestead as a settlement, the player character must either complete the mission Building a Better Crop or by getting one of the radiant Minutemen quests for this location Warwick Homestead: Greenskins. This quest can be acquired by talking to Roger.
  • Despite repairing the water-purifier during the Atom Cats quest, the settlement's water value is unaffected.
  • The Warwick homestead has been chosen by the Institute to facilitate field testing of various genetically-modified specimens in the unique climate of the Commonwealth, due to the exceptionally fertile soil found at Warwick homestead. The goal of this operation is to modify the plants in order to accelerate the growth rate as well as to increase the growth size. The Institute has replaced Roger Warwick with a synth copy to facilitate this.
  • If left untended after completing Building a Better Crop with a peaceful resolution, one of the gourds near the fenced area on the waterfront will start growing to an unusually large size and turn orange, like a giant pumpkin. The settlers will begin commenting on it, including mentions that it's a "prizewinner."
  • Cricket can occasionally be found around the homestead.
  • To the left of the entrance (coming in) is a poster referencing Fallout 3's GOAT.
  • The doors on the northwestern room (connected to from both treatment pools) that has a mini nuke may be glitched so that there is no option to open them but the player character can clip through the doors. If so, they can still place beds in here and the door will eventually be opened by a settler.
  • New unassigned settlers may hang out in the tiny side shed on the south side of the main concrete building.
  • There are several vents inside the main building which occasionally emit smoke, reducing visibility in the interior.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Warwick homestead appears only in Fallout 4.

    • To solve this reload a previous save prior to talking to June.
