IV. Escape! (Continued)

Items Bobby Pin (x15), 10mm Pistol (M), 10mm Rounds (M), BB Gun, BB Rounds (x50), Baseball, Baseball Glove, Baseball Bat, Grognak the Barbarian, Pre-War Baseball Cap, Vault 101 Jumpsuit (M), Vault 101 Utility Jumpsuit (M), Vodka (M), Pencil (M), Shot Glass (M), Radroach Meat (M), Drinking Glass (M), Cup (M), Glass Pitcher (M), Medical Clipboard (M), Clipboard (M), Conductor (x2), Sensor Module (x2), Wonderglue (x2), Turpentine (x2), Scrap Metal, Eyeglasses, Note From Dad, Stimpak (x4), Vault Lab Uniform, Tinted Reading Glasses, Vault 101 Security Armor (M), Vault 101 Security Helmet (M), 5mm Rounds (M), Pre-War Money (M).

Continue down the hallway from where you found the Overseer. The only way you can really go is towards Jonas’s office. But when you arrive, you’re going to find a grizzly sight indeed. Jonas has been killed (just as your friend said he was). If you search his body, you can find some goods –Eyeglasses, a Note From Dad, a Stimpak, and a Vault Lab Uniform. Read the note from your dad, use the Stimpak if you need it, and then proceed to explore the rest of the office and its surrounding environs. Before unlocking the Overseer’s office, be sure to seek out Pre-War Money from the desks near Jonas’s body, as well as more stuff in his bedroom, which is near the door you need to proceed through to continue. Just check the dresser to find five Bobby Pins and more Vault 101 Jumpsuits. An adjacent bedroom contains another Overseer’s Office Key if you decided not to off the Overseer before.

The Overseer’s office can be found by going to Jonas’s corpse and looking to the left of it. Simply approach and open the door to use the earlier-acquired key automatically. Once in the Overseer’s office, the first thing you’re going to want to do is examine the lockers in the corner of the room, where two Mentats, 120 10mm Rounds, three Stimpaks and another copy of the Overseer’s Terminal Password in case you didn’t get it earlier. With all of that acquired, you can then head to computer behind the Overseer’s desk. Examine the computer to automatically use the password, opening everything the computer has to offer.

While the computer’s primary function right now is to open the tunnel to Vault 101’s entrance, you should make sure to spend as much time with the computer as possible, examining all other options before opening the tunnel and heading on your way. You can read dossiers on a select group of people, information on earlier Vault 101-led ventures out into the Capital Wasteland, and a bit about the Vault-Tec company responsible for Vault 101’s construction. After garnering as much information as you can from the archaic-looking computer, you can then activate the tunnel and head towards the entrance.

The tunnel to the entrance will have a lone Radroach in it — avoid it completely or wipe it out with your Baseball Bat, grabbing more Radroach Meat from the corpse. Once you reach the entrance itself, approach the computer terminal and activate the door mechanism, which will open the door to the outside world. Before running out into the world, however, your friend will appear and have something to say to you based on some of your recent actions in the Vault. You’ll also have to deal with two Vault 101 security guards, though both will only fight you hesitantly (be sure to kill them both anyway — you’ll want the experience gained). Then, head on outside. Congratulations — you’ve reached the radioactive wasteland where a majority of Fallout 3 will take place.
