- Die, Robot
1. Die, Robot Walkthrough
You will obtain this quest at the Landing Pad south of Edgewater in Emerald Vale. You should talk to Ludwig Miller there and go along with his theory of the mechanical uprising. He will give you the quest and you can then set off slightly north toward the Junkyard.
At the Junkyard, you will find a robot that needs fixing (Mechanics 38) – if you have Parvati she will fix it for you, and you can return to Ludwig. You will be rewarded with some XP, and he will reveal the location of a “Secret Weapon” in the lavatory in Edgewater’s Cantina.
Go to the canteen and look behind the toilet, you can pick up Ludwig’s Sealed Bundle. You will receive 1700xp.
Return to Ludwig at the Landing Pad, you will receive another 1700xp and Mag-2-Zap (Weapon Mod). You will need the Geothermal’s Plant passcode, which you obtain by talking to Reed Tobson for the Stranger in a Strange Land quest.
Geothermal Plant Repair Bay (4F)
The first switch is found soon after you descend to the 4th floor. Activate the switch then explore a nearby room to find Jeremy has made its way here. Talk to Jeremy, and he will say the logic is defective and all other automechanicals must be permanently dismantled. Accept its offer and explore the area to further advance your understanding of the events. Namely, you can piece together that Spacer’s Choice took an insurance policy on the plant, then altered the robot logic without telling local employees to create a catastrophe, so they might cash in the policy and increase their profits.
From the Repair Bay, take the staircase leading up and follow it to a room where you will find the Security Chief’s Corpse. Loot the Geothermal Security Chief’s Keycard from it and pick up Light Machine Gun if you want. In this same room, if you have Chester’s Passcode you can hack a terminal.
Geothermal Plant 5F
On the fifth floor where you first used the passcode, you can use Security Chief’s Keycard to open the room containing Corrupted Logic Module. You can also loot Mag-Pick, Adrena-Time, Adreno and Weapon Parts from this room.
Return to Ludwig at the Landing Pad to turn the item in and claim your reward.
