The Outcast Collection Agent is an unmarked repeatable quest in Fallout 3.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

To further the Outcasts' recovery efforts, the player is given the option to trade pieces of technology (regardless of condition) to Protector Casdin, in exchange for supplies. Casdin offers a choice of the following, in quantities according to the perceived value of the item:

Once the Lone Wanderer has gathered 50 "points" worth of technology trading (see table below), they are told that they are considered an ally of the Outcasts. This has two benefits. First, they can enter Fort Independence without turning the Outcasts hostile. Second, Casdin will not confiscate Outcast power armor from the player anymore.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Casdin will not accept unique versions of any equipment or DLC content.
  • If the player has an item accepted by the Outcasts equipped, they will be unable to trade any items of this type in, as the dialogue option will not appear. Unequip and trade to get around this limit.
  • Items traded in are removed from the player's inventory and placed in Casdin's. Since this is done by script, rather than transferring the items, all of the goods in Casdin's possession have 100% durability.
    • Items can be recovered from Casdin's inventory using pickpocketing, Paralyzing Palm, and weapons with a knock-down effect such as the Victory rifle, Gauss rifle, or cryo grenades. Being caught pickpocketing will not turn Casdin hostile, but other methods will if the player has not earned the ally status with the Outcasts. If Casdin is turned hostile it will not turn other Outcasts hostile, and Casdin will become friendly again in as little as 3 hours.
