ED-E My Love
Given by: ED-E [Primm] (M3:4)
To start this quest you have to go to the [Nash residence] in Primm (M3:4). There is a robot #1 lying on the table inside the building. Examine it carefully:
- [Repair 65] fix it yourself or use some spare parts (you need 1 scrap electronics, 3 scrap metals, and 2 sensor modules); all these parts can be obtained or bought in Goodsprings for example;
- [Science 55] bypass some of the primary systems
<Companion Protocol:: Begin> ED-E will become your companion. The robot contains some voice recording, which can be triggered when it hears certain keywords. Go to Old Lady Gibson [Gibson Scrap Yard] (MsE:18) #2, who will tell you about solar plant HELIOS One. The quest will start and you also will hear first voice recording about Whitley. You'll also learn that the robot is a prototype "duraframe" model. Listen to the whole recording.
Wait about 10 days (in game time) and go to the [HELIOS One] (MsE:17) to talk to Ignacio Rivas (M29A:2) #1. Ask him about ARCHIMEDES - the next recording will be triggered. Listen to it. Wait next 2 days and go to meet Lorenco, the BoS Knight. He'll ask you to get the robot to one of the patrols to examine it in detail. Now head for [REPCONN Headquarters] (MsD:6). First, open the door to the right - [Lockpick 50] or using the terminal [Science 50]. While going to upper levels you will be stopped 3 times by the Mobile Facial Recognition Scanner. If your skills are not high enough, you will have 30 seconds to leave the building regardless of your answers.
You must use: [Speech 60], [Intelligence 7], [Luck 7], in this order. Being on the third, [Last REPCONN Headquarters Floor] you will find dead patrol #2. Search the bodies and take BoS mission tape. Head to the [Hidden Valley] (MsD:21). When you find it (or it is already found), you'll meet April Martimer, a member of the Followers of the Apocalypse. She'll make a counter-offer asking you to pass the robot to the Followers. Now you have to possible choices and you have to decide what upgrades of ED-E you want - its armor or weapons.
Enter the BoS Bunker (M13:1) and use a password with the terminal. You will meet a Brotherhood Paladin. You will have to give away all your weapons and items. Next you will talk to Elder McNamara, who will assign you [Still in the Dark]. You need to complete its first part (deal with a guard) in order to continue with your task. When you have full freedom, go to Lorenzo [Hidden Valley Bunker, L2] (M13B:4) and give him the robot. It will have its armor upgraded. Wait 3 in-game days and you will get a message saying that ED-E has returned to Primm. Go there and talk to the robot [Primm] (M3:4). The task is complete after a short conversation.
Go to the Mormon Fort (M6B:1), where you can find April Martimer. Give her the robot. It will have its weapons upgraded. Wait 3 in-game days and you will get a message saying that ED-E has returned to Primm. Go there and talk to the robot [Primm] (M3:4). The task is complete after a short conversation.
