Fallbrook Quest Guide
Fallbrook is one of the Locations in The Outer Worlds. Fallbrook is a town in the Monarch Wilderness that is controlled by SubLight. Players will come here for several quests for different factions.. 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. Fallbrook has the following services:
- Vending Machine
- Landing Pad
This quest is obtained by taking the job with Lilya Hagen aboard the Groundbreaker after you’ve gained access to Stellar Bay on Monarch.
Head outside to the fishery docks in Stellar Bay of Monarch and loot the corpse there in the corner. This will provide you with a Bloody Note that has a passcode on it. Take the note to Catherine Malin in Fallbrook.
Make your way to Fallbrook, visiting Amber Heights for several quests in the process. Talk to Mortimer Bell near the entrance and, if you’re doing Space-Crime Continuum, ask him where to find Catherine Malin, and you’ll gain Sublight Salvage & Shipping reputation.
Go to meet Catherine and tell her you’re here to fix the problem. She says you must syphon the gas from Cascadia’s lab into one of your ship’s fuel tanks. She warns you the town is overrun by Marauders and the lab is swarmed with mantisaurs. You can mention that Nyoka can kill them or Ellie can drug them. She will tell you technical skills are needed, you can mention Parvati or Vicar Max. You’re to take the gas to the Groundbreaker once you obtain it. Finish the dialogue and earn 5000xp
Catherine has an extra job, however. You can pick it up now. She wants you to take Clive Lumbergh’s boarst factory, owner dead or alive. You can kill him or sabotage the factory. This unlocks the side quest Slaughterhouse Clive. Speak to Duncan Elley for an ID if you wish to sneak in. You’ll have to Persuade (50), Lie (50) or Intimidate (50) to get one.
Clive is located inside C&P Boarst Factory to the southwest of Fallbrook. If you can reach him and convince him to work with Catherine then you can bring his proposition to her. Or you can just kill him. If you tried to get them to work together when you speak with Catherine you nee a Persuade (50) or Lie (100) to get her to do it.
Head to Cascadia and interact with the terminal near the sealed door containing what you seek (it’s inside a building). You need to override the system with the password and the door will reveal a lift that takes you to Rizzo Secret Laboratory. Be sure to look around Cascadia before you head inside, as you can find Zora’s Executive Review on another terminal inside Rizzo’s.This will allow you to use the terminal at the locked gate to Cascadia.
Once inside the lab you’ll gain 5000 XP, and you’ll come across a security robot, but you can get by with Lie (60). To the left of the robots there’s a room with a terminal. Use it to signal ADA to land, and your quest will update and grant you 5000 XP. Continue exploring by taking the route left from the entrance. You’ll pass a locked door with some loot inside and come to a room with several Mantisaur.
- Following the path-ridden trap without Mantisaur, that has Mechanical Guardian MK 2 instead. You’ll have to dodge mines and ray tripwires unless you have lockpicking 100. Watch out for the steam and the mines on the walls as well! This is the way you must take if you want to use ventilation to solve your bug problem.
Defeat the mantisaur and climb the ladder then interact with the terminal to align the fuel. After that, initiate Alta-Vitae Gas transfer – you’ll learn this terminal is not allowed and you have to make it to another one. Earn 5000xp
Go down the ladder and open the nearby door. There’s more Mantisaur to kill, and a creepy shrine to Dr. Thomas Lynwood Ryall to observe. Go to the far end of the room and you can take a right to loot some items and read a terminal, and then take the opposite direction to fight a Mantiqueen. The terminal up the stairs past the queen is the one you need for your quest. Pick to connect storage tanks to the landing pad refueling system. You can now Engineering (40), Hack (60) or Overload the systems. You’ll gain 5000xp.
While you are inside the lab, find the Mind Control Ray for the quest Weapons from the Void. Go toward the lift and look right – there’s a gap to jump across, leading to a ladder, another jump and another ladder. You’ll find a dead scientist and a safe that contains Mind Control Ray. (3500xp)
Take the lift out and you’ come out by a group of Mantisaur on the opposite side of the locked gate from the main town. You can head to the Unreliable and back to the Groundbreaker to complete the quest by talking to Lylya Hagen at SubLight. (5000xp)
Finishing the quest gives you 20000xp, SubLight Salvage & Shipping Reputation Up, 2188 Bit Cartridge. You can Persuade (100) for 2300xp and 500 Bit Cartridge. If you completed Slaughterhouse Clive you’ll receive further SubLight Salvage & Shipping reputation, and Lilya will ask if the swine gave you any strange looks.
You’ll also unlock the quest to move in and commandeer a decommissioned station as a SubLight Salvage & Shipping Remote Station. Accept to obtain the quest The Ice Palace and obtain Override Cartridge, which allows you to travel to the quest destination.
Make sure you locate the science weapon from the “Weapons From The Void” quest first.
You can gain this quest by talking to Nelson Mayson at his shop to the left of the entrance of Fallbrook in Monarch. He will share that he has a business proposition, hear him out and accept to help to begin the quest.
Head to the tunnel near the riverbed and go inside. You’ll be attacked by Raptidons. Clear them out for 6300xp
Loot the Sprats for Nelson Mayson’s Drugs. If you’re having trouble spotting them all because of other corpses, track the quest and small green icons will appear over sprats you have not looted.
Go back to Nelson and you can either give him the drugs or lie (50) and keep the drug consumables.
- Lie (50): 1000xp, Adrena-Time x5
- Give him drugs: no reward
You must now find the rest of the sprats. Go slightly south and you’ll see sprats getting out of a house. Talk to Bertrand, who has rescued the Sprats from their servitude. You can Persuade (20) or Medical (30) for a peaceful resolution, or attack him. Loot the sprat droppings to recover the drugs.
Head back to Nelson and you again can give him the drugs, or lie, or punch him if you feel like it.

The Empty Man Walkthrough
This quest is only available if you have completed The Illustrated Manual and recruited Vicar Max into your party. Once aboard the Unreliable, talk to Max and ask about his religion and interests to find out that he is in search for a translator, and has ideas of where to get one. He will mention going to the Groundbreaker and hacking the security terminal to identify and locate the translator.
Once at the Groundbreaker, you can approach the security desk past customs and talk to Pvt. Lee Flores. You can ask him what he does and then ask if they do tours – he will mention that if you clear a bounty and make good with Cmdt. Sanita or help Chief Tennyson fix the head you might get a thank you tour. You can try persuading (45) for him to do you a favor, or bribe for 710 bits. (3600 xp for getting in)
If you cannot do the persuasion check, grab the Mardet ID Cartridge that is laying on top of some boxes, on a smaller room near the workbench.
The persuade check will allow you to enter the room without being attacked. Sneak toward the cartridge and eject it from the terminal (3600xp). You can also read some notes on the bounty and confiscated goods. You will now have Groundbreaker Customs Databank as a quest item.
Talk to Vicar Max again (3600xp) and he will identify Reginald Chaney who has joined a Sublight salvage crew and has a domicile in Monarch – Fallbrook. Use perception to ask what he’s hiding from you and he’ll say he just thought it was a long shot.
Once you arrive at Fallbrook in Monarch, go into Reginald’s residence by the Sublight Dry Goods & Sundry to earn 3600xp. Inside, you’ll find Reginald Chaney’s Gold Panning Log and learn that he has found a spot that yields some nuggets on the outskirts of town.
Find Reginald Chaney chilling by the river, and Vicar will confront him. You’ll find out that Max was lying about finding a scholar – Reginald is a former immate that shared prison with Max. Max wants revenge for being tricked, but Reginald claims he can find a translator. You can help Max calm down or encourage him to go on. If you let Reginald explain, he will reveal the book belongs to some expert on Philosophism residing in Scylla. Let Reginald go and you’ll get 3600xp. Max will later be thankful that you calmed him down. If you encourage him to be violent Reginald will still explain about Scylla, and then you can tell Max to kill him if you want. You will gain Negative Reputation with SubLight Salvage & Shipping though.
If you talk to Max he will reveal that he ended up as a prison guard due to revealing an unsanctioned belief to a superior. You can ask why he lied to you and he will apologize. You can kick him off your party or accept the apology.
Go to Scylla
Next head to Scylla in your ship. You’ll want to head east to the Abandoned Mining Outpost. There will be Marauders, Primals and Automechanicals in the way so be careful. Once there, head inside the Hermit’s Lodge and speak to the Hermit.
If you killed Reginald she cannot be convinced to help Max, and you will gain 3,150 XP. Speak to Max to gain a further 19150 XP and some Bit Cartridges which will complete the quest.
If you didn’t kill Reginald: Talk to the hermit and ask for a translation, and you can observe a conversation between Max and the Hermit that will result in her asking for certain ingredients that would “speed up the process” for Max. Agree and you’ll get 3600xp and your quest will update.
Head over to the room next door and interact with the incense to experience a cutscene and obtain 3600xp. Encourage the conversation and keep it positive if you want a positive outcome. At the end of the vision, Max will be a lot calmer. 19200xp, Incense Vessel, 2200 Bit Cartridge
This finishes Vicar Max Questline.
Slaughterhouse Clive Walkthrough
Speak with Catherine at Fallbrook to get this quest. There is a secret entrance to the facility, in the a waterfall near the objective marker, or you can use the front door. It’s a restricted area, so you need to find appropriate ID if you want to complete the quest in an non violent way. Enter through the secret door near the waterfall and go up the ladder directly in front of you. Then there is another ladder, climb that.
You reach a small room with a door and a patrolling robot. Avoid the robot, wait for it to pass, then sneak in the door.
