On this page, you'll find a walkthrough for a next main quest in Fallout 76. Signal Strength mission activates automatically during The Missing Link quest - you'll get it from the robot named Rose after trying to take the elevator to the top floor of the Top of the World. Without finishing the above-mentioned quest you won't be able to complete The Missing Link.
- Obtain the Signal Repeater Schematic
- Obtain the Duplexer and the Transponder
- Create the Signal Repeater
- Installing the Signal Repeater
- Completing the quest
Obtain the Signal Repeater Schematic
The first objective in this mission is to obtain Signal Repeater Schematic. The location of it is shown in the picture above and will be also marked on your map. The place is next to the Top of the World (the location in which you take the quests). This area is full of Super Mutants, so get ammo and Stimpaks.
You can reach the place by walking along the cliff and then jumping down carefully. It's worth using the Power Armor because it reduces the damage from falling. You can go around - you'll lose more time, but you won't have to jump from high cliffs.
You don't need to enter the building, you'll find the schematic outside. In addition, you'll meet many foes in the area, but they're low-level enemies, so you shouldn't have any problem with them.
Obtain the Duplexer and the Transponder
The next objective is to get RCX01-A39 Duplexer and SMU-97 Transponder. You'll find the duplexer in the 98 NAR Regional and the transponder is located in Horizon's Rest. Both of this places are marked in the picture above and will be marked in your game map.
You'll find SMU-97 Transponder in the plane wreck in 98 NAR Regional. You'll have to go through wooden fortification to get to the wreck (where you'll find Scorched and Super Mutants).
The RCX01-A39 Duplexer can be found in the Horizon's Rest. You can come across a few strong robots - hide behind the car to avoid their shots and defeat them. You can also use grenades. If the robots cause you any problems, you can take the duplexer from one of the red cars and quickly evacuate.
Create the Signal Repeater
Now, you have to create a Signal Repeater - use schematic, duplexer and transponder obtained earlier. Find the nearest tinker's workbench and go to the Quest Items tab. You can build the workbench yourself in the CAMP system or use an already existing one e.g. in Flatwoods.
Installing the Signal Repeater
The last objective is to install the signal repeater in the National Isolated Radio Array. Return to the Top of the World and from here go to the place marked in the picture above. You'll get there without any problems because the radar is visible from a long distance.
Once you get there, find the antenna shown in the picture above. There will be a lot of aggressive robots in the area and one Super Mutant in the blue post. Get rid of all the opponents first to make the task easier. Go to the antenna and use the interaction button - you'll install the signal repeater. After that be ready to fight the robots. If the number of enemies overwhelms you, use grenades or Molotov cocktails. It is also worth hiding behind the antenna to avoid being shot.
You'll need to power the installed signal repeater. To do this, go to the blue post where you've killed the Super Mutant, use the computer and choose the power redirection option.
Completing the quest
Lastly, you have to speak to Rose. Return to the Top of the World and use the elevator (this time you'll be able to reach the last floor). Leave the elevator and go to the next room on the left and in the meantime loot all the corpses (you can find a few grenades). You'll reach a room with Rose and Madigan's corpse (which was a part of The Missing Link quest). Talk to Rose to end the Signal Strength mission - as a reward, you'll get: medicaments, water, ammo, crafting schematics and caps.
Use the interaction button on the Madigan's corpse to update The Missing Link quest. You'll find out that Rose can share Madigan's knowledge with you if you do two task for her. Speak with her and you'll get the next main story mission - Flavors of Mayhem.
