The majority of side quests in The Outer Worlds are simple. Speak with an NPC, follow the objectives, done. Make sure when you are attempting a specific quest, that it is selected in your journal. You can only track one quest at a time, so you want to ensure you’re chasing the correct markers.
Roseway Side Quest Guide
Roseway is one of the Locations in The Outer Worlds. Roseway is a town in Terra 2 that has been attacked by outlaws and Raptidons. Players will arrive here responding to a distress signal. Locations are defined by their individual and varied biomes spread around the Halcyon System. Planets and other celestial figures house the inhabitable regions in The Outer Worlds.
By His Bootstraps
You will have to land in Roseway and enter the town to get this quest. You will have to accept the Rescue the Labcoat quest to get started by finding and talking with Anton Crane and you will get to know that he left behind his protégé at the lab while the commotion was happening.
Then you will have to leave town and go to Roseway Gardens then fight with Raptidon and defeat it when it attacks you when you go to Auntie-Biotics Lab 0013. There will be vending machine along with a terminal there which you can hack and unlock the lift in the hallway and get the storage facility passcode as well.
There is another way without hacking that makes you go towards the left door from the entrance and get to the upper level or the third method is to use lockpicking to open the door on the right.
When you get to the second floor, you will find a lot of Raptidon and loot Elite Troop Armor from a Corporate Commander corpse that you have to defeat. To get to an office there will be an unlocked door nearby and inside the office there is a Gigantaur Energy drink that you have to pick up.
The terminal here will give you information about the Raptidon experiment. There will be a Standard Troop Helmet and a container that you can loot.
You can open the locked door in the large office where you fought the Raptidons using the Cleo Lab Office Keyboard or by lockpicking. After unlocking the door you can go to Jameson and have a chat with him. He asks your purpose of being here after he recognizes you.
You will tell him that you are here because of Anton, upon doing this he will tell you that Anton micromanages everything he does and has no regard from him and only cares about his precursors. There is an option to say that an employee’s death would have a negative impact on the image of Anton and then get the item from him in order to test this theory or you can just leave.
Telling him about the employee death will get you 8250xp and Jameson will run off and going back to Anton and talking to him in order to get Auntie Cleo Reputation will get you 1000 Bit Cartridge and 11,000 XP.
This quest will be obtained in Roseway as a part of The Distress Signal when to get here, in case you go into the Auntie Cleo apartments area and speak with Vaughn Cortes. You will get the quest if you agree to his request for his help for the quest.
You will need to fight a lot of Outlaws and Raptidons once you get to Cover Labs which is southeast of Roseway. After you are done fighting with them you will get to Vaughn’s Research. There will be a terminal inside and you need to choose what to do with it.
You can give two samples out by calibrating the experiment using 50 Science which will yield 2x Raptidon Musk but the same experiment will give you only half the yield.
You can also get the unique Weapon Rapti-Prod from this area.
You will have to choose who gets the data you got from the terminal between Vaughn, Anton and Gladys and the number of samples you have correspond to the number of people you can give the data to. The quest will be Botched if you give it to Gladys. You will get XP if you give it to Vaughn or Anton and it will finish your quest.
If you go back to Vaughn you can give him two samples or lie (45) to him and keep half the sample. Your reward would be 8250xp, and 11000 xp along with Auntie Cleo Reputation upon completing the quest. You can ask for 1875 Bit Cartridge as well.
In order to get this quest you will have to talk to Orson Shaw who is present close to the Workbench in Roseway. You will have to go the Storage Facility and defeat the marauders when you get there.
There will be an armory door which is locked. The passcode is in Auntie- Biotics lab. When you get the code you can go inside and get FORCE Pistol Schematics which are present on a wall inside the basement and you will get 11000 XP. There will be an Acid Steeper there as well on a shelf close to the schematics, this steeper will be used for the Cleaning Machine quest.
You will get your reward from Orson or Gladys. You will have to ask Orson about the reason for not turning in his contraband if you return to him.
You can use Intimidate or Persuade (45)in order to make him buy the weapon for 100 Bit Cartridge at the cost of losing untie Cleo Reputation (5% negative).
You will get the Unique Weapon: Ulti- Nature so it would be better to have better relations with this guy.
Journey into Smoke
In case you freed Casandra O’Malley while doing The Doom That Came to Roseway only then you would get this quest. You will have to revive a rare cigarette case for Lillian when you meet her at the Covert Lab exit. You will be asked to go to the Raptidon Pens which is in the south.
You will have to save yourselves from mines which also include a Behemoth. The cigarette case is present atop a white box there and you will get 9000XP. You will be advised by Vicar Max to keep the item so you can sell it later if he is in you party.
