Comes Now the Power is the second main quest. This one is connected to the division prevailing in Edgewater. This page of the guide The Outer Worlds includes a walkthrough of this quest.
Note: This quest is performed simultaneously with Stranger in a Strange Land quest.
- Deliver the message to Reed;
- Talk to the pastor (optional);
- Reroute power from the power plant;
- Reprogram the machines (optional);
- Return to Reed.
Note: This quest is performed in parallel with Stranger in a Strange Land quest.
You start the quest by talking to Reed. You are asked to deliver information about the planned blackout in the rebel camp.
If you have Parvati in your team, then you can talk to her - she will advise you to talk to the local pastor.
Visiting the Biotanical Labs
Your next goal is Botanical Labs. Go there and talk to Adelaide, the leader of the deserters. She has the same request as Reed - redirect power from the power plant. The difference is that you need to divert the power from the Botanical Labs.
Redirecting power from the power plant
Your next stop is the power plant. Eliminate the robots patrolling the area and then go inside. Follow the corridors and eliminate more robots. At some point, you will reach an oval room with an object resembling a core.
You find a ladder leading to the lowest floor. You meet a man named Higgins who has a card to reset the system.
You can now go to the control room. Use Higgins's card to reset the system. Then, go through the power plant to pull the three levers located in this place - they will divert energy.
After completing this task, you can return to the control room and decide to whom you want to redirect power. Lastly, you have to talk with Reed.
