Recruitment Blues Walkthrough


Gaining Access

Pick up from where you left off with Defiance Has Fallen, continue along the hall until you find a ramp up. Take it up to the second floor then climb the metal stairs you find on your way. On the third floor, continue to walk until you reach another red laser grid elevator. Try to "Register new personnel" and you'll find that you're unable to, which is something we'll fix right now.

Across the hall, there will be a room containing a note reading "Squire Evelyn's Journal - Page 16" on one of the shelves in the middle of the room. Once you've acquired this, head southwest to Charleston Capitol Building.


Earning Access

Once you arrive, enter the Charleston Capitol DMV building and find the Terminal on the left side of the room. Use to to select the "Government ID Application" and fill in your details, then print a number from next to the DMV Bot B2. Make your way to the Computer Terminal in the middle of the room and select "Boot up Department B". While the DMV Bots to their thing, you'll need to hold your ground and fight the oncoming Feral Ghouls.

When they're done, they'll call your number. Speak with the DMV Bot B2, then exit the area and head west. Follow the objective to mailbox on the ground. Loot the Junk Mail then return to the DMV to hand the mail over to the DMV Bot B2. From here, you'll need to grab one more DMV form at the Charleston Capitol Courthouse, which can be found west. Once you arrive, you'll find the Blank DMV-AT-21C-V Form on the bottom floor. Return to the DMV Bot B2 with the document, only for him to tell you that you have to find DMV Bot C1.


This Has To Be a Joke

Use the printer next to him, then the terminal in the center of the room. This time select "Boot up Department C" and prepare to fight another horde of Feral Ghouls until your number is called once again. Once he calls your number you'll need to wait for his coffee break to end before he asks you to present your birth certificate.

Instead of kicking the living life out of the bot, look for the terminal in the room where you will be able to inquire about Error 34B/1. This will further explain the problem of not having a birth certificate and will instead require you to the governor's office to get a stamp of approval. Head out the south side of the building and continue in this direction then southwest until you find the Governor's Seal. Stamp your document with it then return to the DMV. You'll need to get your picture taken to finally receive your ID.


Finally Certified

Once you've arrived back at Fort Defiance, enter the door on the left then continue to the top. Once you arrive at the Terminal, register yourself as "New Personnel" then scan your newly-acquired ID to become a member of the Brotherhood of Steel. Head to the pin board then from there, head right and into the opening where you fill find an elevator with a blue laser grid. Take it up to the 4th floor then continue into the room at the end of the hallway.

You'll find a Terminal which you have to use and select "URGENT: Touchdown Recovery" to finally end this mission.
