Signal Point in Space is one of the main quests that you have to do in order to progress in the main story in The Outer Worlds. It is required to regulate the transmissions happening from Monarch because of all the disruptive broadcasts that originate from there and it’s not only the illegal use of radio bands for business. They are using them for propaganda against the board. Which is why in this quest you are asked by Sophia to go to Devil’s Peak and take control of the tower there.
The Outer Worlds Signal Point in Space
When you turn in Phineas Welles, you get this quest automatically when you talk to Sophia Akande during the quest “Long Distance”.
You need to find the broadcast tower at Devil’s Peak and for that, you first have to talk to Everett Gill who is present on Monarch in Stellar Bay. He will tell you the way and in case you ask for help, he will recommend Nyoka whom you can find in the Yacht club there and she will only agree to help you if you complete her quest Passion Pills.
Once done with that you need to go south towards Fallbrook, you would have to go a fair bit northwest from there in order to get to Devil’s Peak. Joy Voivode is the person you need to talk to once you get there about the relay tower she guards.
You will get an update that you can convince the mercenary company C3 to help you out. You can find them down the hill. When you get to them you will have to convince them to not kill you by using Persuade (20) if you say that you came out from the tunnel. After that, you can ask for their help with the Marauder issue. You will get the quest “Mandibles of Doom” if you inquire more about their boss.
After completing this task the C3 mercenary company will help you take out the Marauders. But you will have to open the main gate first. For that, you will have to go to the entrance of Devil’s Peak and take care of the Marauders there.
If you are able to open the main gate then it would now be possible to make them help you take out the Marauders. Now go to Devils’ Peak Station and take out all the Marauders there.
When that is done you will speak with the Hiram using the intercom and you would be told that if you take out all of them you would get double the rate because he wants to save the broadcasting equipment from there go up the elevator. In case you have completed Mandibles of Doom then the C3 would be helping you on this quest.
After you take every Marauder out you will get 2,500 Bit Cartridges from Hiram and upon asking about the Information Broker you will get an Achievement/Trophy and 16000 XP.
Now you have to jump-start the tower using a switch outside. When you do it there will be a crash landing by a ship there will be an argument between Graham and Sanjar about what to do with that. This will trigger the Faction Quest: Canid’s Cradle.
Then you can go back in and talk to Hiram to shut down the illegal broadcasts. You also have the option to shut the whole place down but you would also have to kill Hiram then. These are your options:
- Persuade (60) him
- or Lie (60) to make him work for Sophia Akande
- or you can simply tell him that will also work.
You will get 24000 XP as a quest reward but to make him do this you will have to do the quests, “BOLT with His Name”, “Errors Unseen”, “The Commuter and Pay for the Printer” because you have to shut down the broadcasts at Stellar Bay and Amber Heights.
Making an alliance with Hiram will make Sophia happy when you go talk to her. Your reward for this part of the quest will be 2500 Bit Cartridges, 96000 XP and an increased reputation with The Board. After that, there will be a video that contains information on how Halcyon is running out of food from the Chairman that you will see.
Their solution to this would be to freeze people in order to keep the population low until they have a solution to world hunger from the brightest.
For more information, you will have to talk to Sophia and clear a Perception check. You will come to know that the reason for the research conducted on Roseway was to make a suppressant for an appetite that would make people eat less. She will further uncover that she is not in favor of this bureaucracy and doesn’t like the Board.
It’s time for you to choose your side, in case you choose Adelaide McDevitt on Edgewater then you will have to go and wipe out the whole town of Edgewater in the quest, “Foundation”. You can read our guide on it to learn more
