The Outer Worlds has several Faction Quests which players can choose to complete, to acquire unique rewards – including XP and reputation with the respective Faction. One of these Faction Quests in The Outer Worlds is called The Doom That Came To Roseway. In this guide, we’ll show you how to complete this quest, step by step.
The Outer Worlds The Doom That Came to Roseway
The basic objectives of this sidequest are as follows.
Find Out What Caused The Distress Call – The Distress Call most likely came from Roseway’s broadcast tower. So, go over there and investigate why the call was made.
Locate Anton’s Safe – You must find Anton’s safe in his office, which has his research data.
Recover The Data – The important research data is not found in the safe. Meaning, it probably got stolen by Outlaws. You have to search all over the lab to find the data. To unlock the doors which have trapped a few Outlaws, go to the terminal in Chief Porter’s office and print a security keycard.
Take Care Of The Outlaws – The lab is being raided by the Outlaws. It’s best to eliminate them; but you don’t need to, if you don’t want to.
Get Rid Of The Raptidons – There are some Raptidons roaming in the underground facility. Again, it’s best to eliminate them; but you don’t need to, if you don’t want to. To eliminate them, Anton will advise you to make use of the lab’s equipment – mostly the canisters of sedative gas.
Help Cassandra Escape – You have to create a route for Cassandra to escape. To unlock her pen gate, use the aforementioned terminal in Chief Porter’s office to print a keycard.
Let Cassandra Out – Once you have acquired the keycard and also have made the escape route, unlock Cassandra’s pen gate and let her out.
Chat With Anton – Go to Roseway and deliver Anton’s research data to him.
To get this quest, talk to Gladys at the Groundbreaker and when you’re given the chance to uncover corporate secrets (during Passage to Anywhere), accept it. Once that is done, you’ll receive the Distress Call which begins this quest.
Now, talk to Anton (in Roseway) regarding his research. After that, go inside the underground lab and you’ll come to find that the Outlaws have stolen his research.
Head to the gate to the south-central section of the map, and go to Cassandra O’Malley. She knows where the research is, but she needs your help. Take care of the Raptidons in the lab using the sedative gas canisters (they’re in the room adjacent to the one where you found the research)
To use the canisters, go to the incubation room – it’s the one with the big green tubes. Then install the three canisters close to the smaller Raptidon. Now, you can activate the gas on the opposite side of the room.
Once that is done, go to Chief Porter’s Office and use the computer to print a keycard. Now, you have the choice to either kill or free Cassandra. To free her, go around the left side and flip the switch right behind her.
Do note, if you choose to free her, Persuade 31, 1100 bits are required to obtain the research. Once you obtain the research, you will be rewarded with 490 XP and 1120 BC.
Now that you have the research, exit the location (you might have to fight some more Outlaws) and deliver the research data back to Anton. The end quest reward will be 3750 bit cartridges, Researcher’s Scrubs, and 24000 XP; plus, your reputation with Anton Cleo will be increased.
