How to Destroy Brotherhood of Steel Bunker

There are no specific requirements for this mission. However, we highly recommend bringing a comrade such as Cass and Rex. Stealth Boy could also be an option for his skills that you can use to steal key cards that are required to self-destruct the bunker.

Speaking of key cards, you need to find the three key cards for this mission. Below are the details on where and how you can obtain them.

  • Elder McNamara – It’s located in his chair. Assuming you already know its location as it requires some previous quest completion to gain access to the bunker to meet McNamara. At this point, you’re going to want to engage Stealth Boy, and you can wear some clothes that might give you an extra “sneak” ability. You can approach from the back while you’re crouching (your companions won’t affect your stealth ability) and you can start picking up McNamara. You’re taking the “Elder Keycard” and if done correctly, the guards will not engage and you can just walk away without being noticed.
  • Head Paladin Edgar Hardin -Stealth is a bit difficult for this one as he can spot you no matter what you try. So, you have to take him down. Simply approach and engage him and aim for his head to easily kill him. If you kill him in a short period of time, you can get away without being noticed. You can reach Head Paladin in a room via a passageway to the left of the room of Elder McNamaras.
  • Head Scribe – Using your sneaking ability, just approach him and pickpocket the key from his pocket. But be aware of his apprentice. Make sure that his apprentice is not watching before you steal the card.

After obtaining all the cards, go to the terminal which is just next to Head Scribe. But it still depends on where you found him. It may be in the room. In the terminal, click the “Generate Self Destruct Password” and then proceed to the terminal at the right. Input all the password you have verified. After that, the alarm should turn off and no one will engage you. The last thing you have to do is exit the bunker from where you entered.
