The Job is a quest in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.

[edit] Quick walkthrough

  1. Speak with Ulysses through ED-E after completing The Silo.
  2. Venture towards the marked men base following your map marker.
  3. Obtain the laser detonator.
  4. Destroy the warhead to gain access back to Hopeville.
  5. Follow the map marker towards the High Road entrance.
  6. Kill or run past all the tunnelers and reach the High Road.

[edit] Detailed walkthrough

After your conversation with Ulysses ends, walk down the hill and head off to the left. To the northwest of the gas station are two marked men near the Hopeville Missile Base Headquarters, and one more immediately past the easy-locked gate.

Continue east and you'll reach marked men camp, seemingly inhabited by a lone marked man; dispatch of him, and from the roof of the building straight ahead, another will pop up and begin firing at you, likely with a Red Glare. Make your way up to the roof where he was, and a Red Glare will also be leaning against a wooden box in the corner. Just to its left will be the laser detonator you need; once grabbed, a group of patrol of marked men (4-5) will spawn when you move toward the roof's edge.

Once you have dispatched of the group, head south and you'll see the warhead right in front of you. Simply equip the laser detonator, aim at the warhead, and hold down the trigger for a few seconds. The warhead will blow up (often resulting in a chain reaction of exploding cars, so be careful) and a pathway will open up, allowing you passage ahead and back into the barracks area. Turn left and follow the path a short way to see another warhead; behind it are a few marked men, and the road continues to the collapsed overpass tunnel.

Once inside, you'll hear another log recording of Whitley from ED-E. The path ahead is fairly linear, but you can explore the long train car for a couple crates. After traveling down a winding, narrow path, ED-E will start emitting "scared beeps"; when the area opens up a bit, a tunneler will surface from the ground to attack you. There are a few containers around to loot, and progressing a short while more spawns more tunnelers. Once you've passed through a concrete V-shape, the large area ahead will spawn a large group of tunnelers, so move forward more slowly to keep their group numbers down. Climb up the hill, and leave the tunnel to the High Road entrance.
