The Outer Worlds The Stainless Steel Rat Quest Guide

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.

The Stainless Steel Rat Walkthrough

Go near the large building on the bottom center of the Stellar Bay map, and you will find Talmadge Kerr, who will be shouting someone has been killed inside the apartments. Go into the building to unlock the quest The Stainless Steel Rat.


You can examine the apartment and note a Hastily-Packed Suitcase, as well as a Tossball Betting Slip. This will give you 5625xp and update the objectives.

Head over to Left Field Tossball Betting, that is located northwest in town, and talk to Nell. Ask her about it and she will reveal the victim is named Isaac, and that Elijah and other grunts were pushing him around. They can be found loitering in the alley behind The Yacht Club. You’ll get 5625xp and your quest will update.

Make your way around and take a narrow alley to find Elijah and his group of thugs. You can accuse him of the murder outright, and he’ll say Isaac had it coming, and you have no proof. You can Intimidate (55) or try to leave. They will attack you if you leave. If you pass the first intimidation check, a second one (35) will appear. Pass it and you’ll get 5600xp for forcing them to leave the town.

  1. This guide’s incomplete. If you follow the clues from the conversation with Nell, you can search the back of the warehouse and find a dirty tossball stick with some of Isaac’s purple teeth stuck in it. You can show that as evidence instead of the first 55 Intimidation check.
