Tradecraft is the first Railroad mission and it’s the admission point into the faction. You’ll be guided by spymaster Deacon but don’t let you guard down, this mission is quite challenging. Learn how can you do it without failing once.
Fallout 4 is all about helping the world coming together again. And helping the Railroad is just another way to make Commonwealth a safer place. The first mission is Tradecraft and you need to infiltrate the older Railroad’s base, which is now under a Synth’s domination. Gear up and get ready for another intense mission.
1. Meet Deacon at the Old Highway
After talking to Deacon at the Old North Church, do a fast travel to the nearby location of the Old Highway marked in your map. He’s under not on the highway so just walk there and approach him.
2. Follow Deacon
Follow Deacon and the tourist markings on the way. You just have to walk forward and clear the path from ghouls. Then, you’ll find your asset there, where you can get more information about the mission.
3. Pick the Escape Tunnels
Deacon is not certain about the veracity of the info gathered from the tourist and he asks you about the strategy approach. Pick the tunnels instead of a front assault. Why? It seemed safer to me and it ended up to be true.
4. Enter the Escape Tunnels
Go to the tunnels marked in your map, it’s a huge metal tube in the ground you cannot miss it. Enter with Deacon and wait him to hack the terminal to open the gate.
5. Clean the Area
Start killing the synths around, be careful to do not get hit as they are quite strong in terms of damage. Luckily, they go down pretty fast if you use a strong weapon. So, just take cover and aim at their chest and belly, it’s harder to miss that way.
6. Hack the Terminal
Now, it’s your turn to hack the terminal. Find the password and unlock the door. But position yourself and your companion first, there are tons of synths inside. Take cover on that same side and look for the synths standing on the balcony.
7. Find the Door
You’re in a wide room now, head up the stairs and find the door to go forward. You’ll also find advanced terminators in your path but don’t worry, they are not needed for the mission.
8. Dodge the Electric Traps
You need to pass a corridor with three electric traps. The easier way to do not set them off is to jump between each one of them. However, be careful at the last one because synths are waiting you in the next room.
9. Pick the Carrington’s Prototype
Search around by following the green icon, you’ll find your Carrington’s Prototype inside a metal container. On the other room, you’ll find utility items locked up, you can easily hack it to open the doors.
10. Leave the Base
On the way forward, do a sprint to avoid the mine explosions. Then, do some more hacking to power up the elevator ahead. You just need to kill a few more synths and you’re almost done. Once outside, do a fast travel to the Old North Church to talk to Deacon and finish the mission.
