Fortunate Son Choices and Best Choice

Hospital Employee: Dead or Alive


In the first part of the conversation, you will have the option of keeping the hospital employee alive or dead. If you kill him, you will still be able to get implant but without knowing it has a virus.


If you keep him alive, before you leave the area, he will inform you of a virus that the implant has and gives you the shard to remove the virus.

Best Choice

While the mission will still be accomplished, killing the employee without getting the shard first would result to the death of the Nomad kid. So, option two is better since it leads to a more positive outcome.

    • I'd really like to see a flowchart with all the Main Quests, Side Quests, and Gigs that exist so we can easily see what you need to do before unlocking XYZ quest (kind of like they did here except with everything, not just the Main ones)

    • Random damage ramp in enemies/damage reduction for the player. Randomly, I would be one shot by low level enemies while only dishing out double digits. A save roll back and reload fixed the issue, but randomly I would fall into same situation leading to all damage becoming one shot kill, even with 400+ HP and a bunch of armor.
