Fallout 76 Wastelanders Hunter for Hire Mission

Fallout 76 should head to Vault 76 and speak with Pennington and then meet up with Lacey and Isela. You will get the Wayward Soul Questline. Speak with Lacey and Isela who will tell you about a treasure in Appalachia. You will then be asked to speak with the Duchess. She will inform you about the Free Radicals coming into her establishment asking for Crane, and Crane is the one who knows about the treasure. The first move is to lure the Free Radicals into a trap and find out where their boss is. You need to create the Crane’s Treasure Hunting sign at your camp and then visit a nearby radio tower to spread the message. You can find a radio station in the West of The Wayward at Relay Tower EM-B1-27.

Once the message is relayed raiders will visit your camp and you can get information out of them, You will find out that the gang is at the West Virginia Lumber Company. If you have enough Charisma you can convince them the treasure is in DC. Head back to the Duchess and she will inform you about Anchor Farm and a scrapper at the fairground.

Speak with the family at the farm to get the password; Blue Danube. To get the password you need at least +3 Charisma, Perception or Strength to get option so your stats must be high enough. Liebowitz will ask you to get a Deathclaw Egg, get the egg and it is best not to engage the Deathclaw. When you come back Liebowitz will give you a Stealth Boy. You can use +8 Strength to threaten him in giving you the Stealth Boy too. Now, go up the camp and use the password to enter or threaten them into letting you in and use the Stealth Boy. If you have the password go in and speak with the Roper, the leader.


It comes down to what you decide to do here.

  • Use the Stealth Boy and kill everyone
  • Join his crew to find the treasure, or if you have +4 Strength, Agility or Intelligence to get him outside
  • Convince him to leave The Wayward alone if you have +8 Charisma or Strength

There is a white door in the back, you can pick the lock. If you join the crew and get yourself one of three perks you will get a cut of the treasure. Return and speak with the Duchess to progress further. That’s all you need to know in order to complete Fallout 76 Wastelanders Hunter for Hire quest. Need more help with the game?
