Part of the Hunter for Hire quest gives you a choice. This Fallout 76 Wastelanders Kill Or Convince The Gang Leader guide will help you make that choice with a rundown of the events immediately following the choice made during the Hunter for Hire mission.
The Hunter for Hire quest chain is a new quest introduced with the Wastelanders update. In this quest you’re helping the owner of a local establishment clear out some nearby bandits who are harassing her bar in search for some mysterious treasure. After you have played the broadcast tape, you report back to Duchess and then you can speak with Mort about how to proceed. It is at this point your objective changes and gives you a potential future choice.
Fallout 76 Wastelanders Kill Or Convince The Gang LeaderBefore you reach this part of the quest there are some optional objectives you can complete. If you head to the farm, go upstairs and speak with Daniel. You learn that he offers them supplies in return for protection. Daniel also tells you of a password to get into the yard, Blue Danube. Then you can head to Tyler County Fair to find the Scrapper.
If You Choose To Kill The Gang Leader
You can either use Daniels information to enter the area peacefully and kill the boss or attack at the gates. There’s a locked door that you can use to enter but it’s easiest to use Daniel’s information from the optional objective to gain entry then just kill the gang leader once you get inside. Once he is killed head back upstairs to the door that is blocked by 2×4’s to leave a message for the gang. When you return to Duchess she gives you 75 Caps, Melon, Corn, Bourbon, Stimpak.
If You Choose To Convince The Gang Leader To Leave Wayward Alone
When you arrive at the Lumber Yard use the Intercom and ask to meet with the boss. If you spoke with Daniel first, he would have told you the password is Blue Danube. Then follow the objective marker to enter the base interior. The head down the stairs and into the tunnel to find the Gang Leader. I then followed this line of dialogue:
- I want you to leave The Wayward alone
- [Strength+8] Because if you don’t, I will rip you all limb from limb
Roper agrees to leave The Wayward alone. He seems upset but handles it well enough. When you return to The Wayward and speak with Duchess, she will give you a new quest and 75 Caps, Razorgrain, Tarberry, Vodka, 3x Radaway and 2x Stimpak.
It’s very possible these decisions have consequences later in the game but as it’s still brand new, we’re not there yet. If the Kill Or Convince The Gang Leader does bring further consequences down the line, we’ll be sure to update this guide.
