On this page of our game guide to Wasteland 3 you can find a walkthrough of the Heads or Tails secondary mission. This walkthrough will help you to successfully complete this task.
- Go to the Hoon's Homestead or the Arapaho Convoy;
- Eliminate the Scar Collectors (if you head to the Convoy);
- Eliminate the Dorseys (if you get to the Hoon's Homestead).
During the exploration of Colorado you will receive two messages in short interval. The first from the Hoon's Homestead and the second from the Patriarch. Both of them will be related to providing assistance. The most important thing is the fact that you cannot help both of them. Therefore, making a decision to help one faction results in the death of the other one in the second location (if you wait too long with this decision, then everyone will die). You can complete this quest in two ways.
Rescue and Secure the Convoy
If you decide to help the Patriarch, then reach the Arapaho Convoy. After you get out of the vehicle, head to the building on your left. You'll find a few crates that can be looted. In addition, if you have Lockpicking 4, then you will be able to get to the back of the building.
There is a passageway there that will lead you to a building next to your opponents. Attacking them from a horizontal level will give you a huge advantage and definitely make the fight easier.
However, if you are unable to get to the back of the building, you will have to launch an attack from the front. Hide behind the cover that is closest to you in order to launch a surprise attack and get advantage from the very beginning of the battle.
After the fight, talk to the injured woman next to the wreckage of the vehicle.
Saving the Hoon family
After you make a decision to save the family, you have to head towards the Hoon's Homestead. On the spot, you'll find a group of Dorseys that keep banging on the door of the house.
Before the battle begins, a dialogue sequence will be initiated. During this conversation you will have a possibility to solve the whole matter peacefully, that is, without any violence. Just use the Hard Ass skill (requires rank 2) or Kiss Ass skill (rank 2) , then Nerd Stuff (rank 2) or Weird Science (rank 2).
Whether you avoided a fight or killed the Dorseys, talk to the Hoon family at the end and collect the reward.
