When you emerge from Chevy Chase, the situation is going to be dire. Super Mutants are everywhere, but when you run into them, you’ll also run into the famed Brotherhood of Steel, cleaning up the nuclear wasteland for the betterment of society. It’s a great situation, really, because the Super Mutants you’d otherwise have to deal with en masse can be cleaned up rather easily by hiding, sitting back and letting your new well-armored friends’ guns do the talking. You should, of course, scour the fallen bodies of the Super Mutants for many weapons and other gear, however. Just don’t expect to get experience unless you contribute to the death of the enemies. But at this point, especially if you’re on level five like we suggested, it’s more important to save your ammunition than gain experience.

Amongst the Brotherhood, you’ll make a new friend in the form of Sentinel Lyons, a friendly-yet-stern member of the organization. You’ll learn a bit about the plight of she and her friends in the Brotherhood, and that their job is both a serious and important one. After speaking with her and combing their targets’ bodies for goods, follow them as they regroup. You’ll see one of their fallen friends on a bed — searching this person will result in the discovery of some goods, including heavy Power Armor. Leave it for now, as we’ll come back later to grab it once we can actually do something with it.

The next firefight is a fierce one, but you can stay on the periphery and refuse to get involved at all if you so desire (if you want experience, get involved, but like we said earlier it’s more important to conserve ammunition at this critical point in the game). When you enter the school, simply follow your new friends as they mow down the mutant enemies as if they were the weakest foes on the Wasteland. These guys are surely powerful! Comb the bodies of fallen enemies, being sure to go to the second floor of the nearly-destroyed structure before heading outside, where real combat begins.

Out here, you’ll run into a Super Mutant Behemoth, an enemy that you simply won’t be able to take on all by your lonesome. Thankfully the Brotherhood of Steel has your back here! Things can turn out differently depending on how quickly the Behemoth is felled, which is largely contingent on whether or not you opt to attack the foe or not. We recommend not firing on the enemy unless you absolutely have to, as conserving ammunition should still be a top priority for you. Try to hide and let the Brotherhood do all of the dirty work, but make sure to pick the Behemoth’s body clean once he’s dead. 99 Bottle Caps, five Frag Grenades, four Frag Mines, a Missile, and more will be yours by doing so.

Speak with your Brotherhood brethren when things calm down. It’s likely that one of their own fell in the fight ,but that’s life (and death) on the Capital Wasteland. After grieving with them (and picking their comrade’s body of goods if you so desire), seek out the door into the building. You won’t be able to get in until you use the intercom and speak briefly with the DJ of Galaxy News Radio. But once you do, you can head inside. Then, climb up the stairs (either staircase is fine) and seek out Three Dog on the top floor of the building. Be sure not to steal his goods — you don’t want to be on his bad side. Well, at least not yet.

When you finally get to talking with Three Dog, you’ll want to be nice to him (unless you’re playing evil, in which case you’ve probably already killed him). The nicer you are to him, and the more patient you are with his verbosity, the more information he’ll give you. He’ll tell you that your father did in fact come through here not too long ago, and gives you some clues as to his whereabouts. However, he won’t spill the beans completely until you do him a favor. If you agree to head to a nearby museum, steal an old satellite dish and place it at the top of the Washington Monument (or what’s left of it, anyway), he’ll agree to give you all of the information you want. After all, this will increase the range of radio station exponentially. So, it’s a win-win situation for you both.
