You have an obvious choice to make here. Will you go left, or will you go right? Well, getting to the Mall is our primary objective, and that’s to the right (if your back is facing the corridor from which you came). But we implore you to first head to your left. It’s a dead end, but you’ll be able to fight at least one more Raider to gain more experience and goods. What’s more, you can search the area they were guarding for more goods, including an Assault Rifle and some .308 Caliber Rounds. And there’s a bed here that you can sleep in if you so desire once the enemy threat is eliminated.

Once you’ve done that, you can then head down the corridor in the other direction. En route, expect to run into several Raiders armed to varying degrees. They shouldn’t be any issue for you, and you should be sure to at least grab their ammunition when they’re killed (it’s unclear if you have enough room in your inventory to carry more goods — it’s all about what you currently have). When you reach another train platform, you’re going in the right direction. Clear the area of all remaining Raiders before running up the disabled escalators to the upper floor. Then, follow the linear, enemyless pathway ahead of you to the outside world. You’re now in the belly of the beast, the Mall.

Now, you have some decisions you have to make. Don’t peek your head up from the staircase leading into the Mall itself until you’ve made it. There are plenty of Super Mutants in your vicinity, and you can try to take them on if you want, luring them towards you to funnel them into set mines or however else you might want to fight them. If you need to travel back to Megaton to unload your goods and make room for more, then you have to do this, because you won’t be able to fast travel until the enemies are cleared. On the other hand, you can simply run up the stairs and head right for the Museum of Technology on your right if you’re ready to proceed as is. The choice is yours. If you decide to do the former, however, be sure to add the Museum of Technology to your map so you can fast travel back to it when you’re done!

Once inside the Museum of Technology, have your weapons drawn and ready, because you’re going to be confronted before long by a pair of Super Mutants. Neither of these foes should be an issue for you, especially if you’ve already fought plenty of them and know what to expect. Use the cover provided for you near the entrance in the form of pillars as you use VATS to fight the enemy on the ground floor first before fighting the one on the second floor (the latter may be drawn to you, so make quick work of the first so you don’t have to deal with both of them simultaneously). After sweeping the ground floor for goods (you should find a Stealth Boy, some Fancy Lads Snack Cakes and more), head up to the second floor.
