Main Story Quest: Fallout 4 Vault 75 Quest Tips

The Fallout 4 vault 75 location is in Malden Middle School basement. You must enter the school and explore the area. This is one of my favorite locations because it looks like a Mass Effect Sci-Fi area. Anyways, gear up before entering this dangerous place. Bring the following items with you before exploring:

  • Sniper Rifle
  • General Rifle
  • 10mm Pistol
  • Shotgun
  • Grenades
  • Stimpaks
  • Food Supplies

To clear vault 75 from enemies you must take your time. If you rush ahead, you will die quickly. Explore carefully by walking and looking around doors. Look at your map and follow the quest objectives. Be careful when throwing grenades, sometimes they bounce back from the wall or doors.

Each time you kill a boss, make sure you loot them. Sometimes they have access cards that will let you advance in the quest. Don’t loot everything you see, you can always come back once you clear the area. Choose a companion that you enjoy and keep him safe. 

Preston Garvey was my companion through the Fallout 4 vault 75 mission and he survived. However, use the command “Stay” so they don’t walk into an ambush in another room. There are enemies hidden behind windows, on top of floors waiting to destroy you. Good luck soldier.
