Fallout 76 – First Contact Quest Walkthrough

First Contact Summary

There are multiple objectives in this quest, the first being finding the Overseer’s C.A.M.P followed by listening to Overseer’s log and register as a volunteer.

As you emerge from the Vault, take a good look around and take in the environment. When you are ready to move on, go down the Vault-tec entrance steps and talk to Mr. Handy robot to know the whereabouts of the Overseer.

Then head down and walk towards the south. Now head along the Router 88 and you will come across a covered bridge with Overseer’s C.A.M.P nearby. The C.A.M.P is just above the road junction.

Explore the C.A.M.P as indicated by the game. Here will be a couple of crafting tables that you can use to complete miscellaneous quests. However, you will find Overseer’s log here. Listen to it and you will come to know that the Overseer has gone to Flatwoods.

To get to the Flatwoods, journey along the road towards SouthWest. You will pass Green Country Lodge along the way. As you reach the Flatwoods, enter the church in the town with the Command Post sign outside.

You still won’t find the Overseer but there will be another one of her caches there. Open it and you will find another Overseer’s Holotape. In the log, she emphasizes the importance of working with Responders.
