Why Call Them Back From Retirement Quest Guide
Gain this quest from speaking with Hortense Ingalsbee in Byzantium.
Head to the retiree area which is near the Byzantium Freight Port Landing Pad. Either fast travel there or take the elevator down. Use the terminal there to unseal the door, then head into the Early Retirement District.
There are some things here that you can examine that tell you about the Retirement Program. Use the terminal up ahead to consent to the rules and regulations of Early Retirement. Head down the elevator and you’ll gain 9500 XP and you’ll find corpses everywhere with robots cleaning them up.
You’ll be attacked by waves of automechanicals and will have to kill them all. Once you do, use the terminal. You can Hack (65) automechanicals and unseal the Hatch to the Maintenance Tunnels. Head into them.
There you will have to fight more autiomechanicals if you haven’t already disabled them by using hack. You can either head to the door on the right side or you can open the door right there using lockpicking (55). Get to the opposite end of the maintenance tunnel and get back to prosperity Plaza using the elevator.
You can either tell Hortense when you get to her about what is going on or you can just lie (35) to her and make her go to the Retirement District. In case you tell her then she will say that it is brilliant but at the cost of a negative board reputation.
You can use intimidation (60) in order to get her to pay you even more and you will get 2,188 Bit Cartridges along with 28500 XP. Lying to her again will get you 1,125 more Bit Cartridges and 28500 XP along with a better board reputation.
