Starting the quest
As mentioned above, you get this quest during The New Arrivals, after a conversation with the Overseer. Now head to the Top of the World location and talk to a robot named Rose. You could have already met him if you did the main plot of the basic version of Fallout 76.
Get David's trophy
Rose will order you to get David's trophy. You will find it in a location called Pleasant Valley Cabins. It is located right next to where you are. When you get there, you will encounter opponents. Once they are killed, go to the upper floor of the destroyed building and take the trophy.
Now you have to search the same room where you found the trophy. To do this, go to the markers and activate them - this way you will get the necessary clues. Open the inventory and read the text on the photo you picked up while collecting the clues.
Get the AI Program
You find out that your next objective is Rose's AI Program - go to the place marked on the map. If you go there from the Top of the World, you will come across the West Tek Research Center - if you do not have a well-developed character and good weapons, you better avoid this place because it is inhabited by high-level Supermutants.
A powerful Deathclaw may be encountered in the place where the AI Program is. If you can't kill him, try to quickly take the program and run - the cliffs nearby cliffs will help you escape.
Repair the AI Program
Now you have to fix the program you have obtained - the next location will be marked on the map. When you get there, go down to the basement and use the computer. You find that you need a password - you will find it in the nearby toilet. Once you get the password, go back to the computer and fix the program.
After the repairs, head back to Rose. You will receive another mission objective for Strange Bedfellows, one of the quests in Fallout 76 Wastelanders.
Find the holotape
A new location has been marked on the map. Head there and search the marked point - you will find the right holotape. You will encounter low-level robots - you shouldn't have any problems with them.
Load the holotape
The holotape must be activated in Relay Tower LW-B1-22. As always, go to the computer, select the right holotape, and start the connection.
Defeat Scorched it the Mezzanine
The next objective in the Strange Bedfellows quest in Fallout 76 Wastelanders is to defeat all the Scorched staying at the Top of the World, specifically on the Mezzanine level. You can get there by activating the correct button in the elevator. Prepare yourself well for this fight - the opponents have a quite high level and there are a few dozen of them. Remember about taking ammunition and medical supplies.
After defeating all the enemies, Meg, the leader of the Raiders faction, will appear. Talk to her to continue the quest.
If you have Intelligence 12+ or Charisma 12+, you will be able to complete the quest right at this moment by selecting the appropriate dialog option. Otherwise, you will have to perform the action described below.
Go to Aldridge
Now you need to see what's happening to Aldridge - another location will be marked on the map. If you have discovered a location nearby the destination, teleport there - otherwise you will have a long journey ahead. You will encounter several enemies before the location's entrance - kill them and then go inside. Aldridge is here - talk to him. It turns out that he is infected - you have to decide whether you want to kill or spare him. However, the choice has no impact on the quest.
Completing the task
You have to meet Meg again - head to The Crater, Raiders' headquarters. After talking to the leader, Strange Bedfellows, one of the quests in Fallout 76 Wastelanders, is completed. If you have also completed Here to Stay quest, you will be able to continue The New Arrivals.
