Fallout 76 Steel Reign A Knight’s Penance
Your first objective is to visit Fort Atlas and speak with Russel Dorsey who tells you about suspicious Super Mutant attacks in Appalachia. Dorsey will ask you to take this information to Knight Shin and Paladin Rahmani.
Shin wants you to brief Norland and Hewsen and request them to join him on a mission. Meanwhile, it is your job to track down Super Mutants. First, speak with Norland and Hewsen and tell them to report to Uncanny Caverns.
You also need to visit the Uncanny Caverns to find Knit Shin and two Initiates. Speak with Shin and accompany with to kill the Mirelurk Killcalw. After its death, speak with Shin again and head further into the caves.
You will come across some floaters, kill them all but Shin will warn you about nearby Super Mutants.
You now need to find a way through which is pretty simple to accomplish. You will see a rockslide ahead, and a shovel half-buried in the ground to the right of it. Interact with the Rockslide, the Shovel, and the Crevis before reporting back to Shin.
The last step is to clear the rocks using the shovel. Go through the path and kill the Super Mutants. Follow the marker and recover the broken pipboy to get more information about the Super Mutants.
