Because of this, your best bet is to follow the Protectron until he runs into his first enemies, which will likely be a pair of Mole Rats. This will distract him enough that both the enemies and you can attack him with relative immunity (so long as he continues to have distractions in the forms of other, more hostile enemies). Aim for his head and go to town on that scrap of metal, and be sure to take out the Mole Rats he was engaging as well before searching their corpses and moving on.

You’ll proceed onward into another series of offices with a bathroom off to the side. Thorough examination of your surroundings will again net you some random goods that you can sell later, including (but not limited to) various medical supplies (some Forceps and a Medical Brace), Turpentine, a couple of Boxes of Detergent, and 5.56mm Rounds. There should be no enemies in these offices, however, so you can breathe easy for now. When you finally work your way out of the offices to a Mole Rat-covered staircase leading down, you know you’re on the right track. So slay the enemy or enemies standing in your way and move on!

Run down the stairs ahead, grabbing the Lawn Mower Blade from the downed lawnmower en route. You should also be able to find more items from a toolbox near a flaming barrel, and some other random semi-useless items lying about. When you get to another series of staircase, climb and descend them as needed until you arrive to a point where a locked gate with Feral Ghouls is on your right, and another office is on your left. Take out what Feral Ghouls you can now, if you so desire, but it’s the office on your left that’s of true interest.

As if it were a surprise, this office has even more goodies for you. Everything from Crutches to Shotgun Shells to a Leafblower and a Vacuum Cleaner can be found, as well as plenty of medicine (such as Rad-X and RadAway), and even a Laser Pistol if you don’t yet have one (coincidentally, we already are strapped with one). The most important item you find while carousing around the office is the Metro Utility Gate Key, however, with which you will be able to open the aforementioned gate and continue through the station. You should also take the time to access the computer in the office (no hacking required!) Doing so will allow you to shut off a gas leak further in the tunnel. If you don’t do this, you’ll have to rely on melee weapons later on, so be sure this is a priority.

Feral Ghouls are relatively weak foes, but they are incredibly agile and aggressive, so you’ll want to kill as many of them as possible before opening the gate. Once you do, they’ll stream through the opening towards you and make your life extremely difficult. So, take care of what you can (preferably all of them), and then open the gate, expelling any others before proceeding on your way. The rest of the road should be all-clear of enemies. When you reach a staircase leading down, you can find a locked door there, though you’ll unlikely be able to pick it open at the present time. So proceed along the raised linear path, and you’ll ultimately come to a doorway where you can access an adjoining station. We’re getting close to our destination.

It’s easy to get lost here in Friendship Station, and since there are both Feral Ghouls and the much-stronger Feral Ghoul Roamers roaming around here, you’re not going to want to get too carried away in your explorations. If you head straight down the tunnel you find yourself in when you first get to this new station, and then go up some downed escalators you run into, following the linear pathway from there back outside, you’ll add Friendship Station to your map. If you decide to do this, however, be ready to fight plenty of enemies en route, and once outside, immediately run back in once the location is added to your map. You’ll be glad you did this later, but again, if you’re weak, timid or running low on health and/or ammo, bypass this for now.
