Strictly Business

Completed "Strictly Business"  

Strictly Business is acquired when you visit Paradise Falls. Aside from bribing the person out front, completing this quest is the only way of getting inside the town. If you do bribe him, simply speak with him again and you can still get the quest. Make sure you do not tell him you don't like slavery or the town will turn hostile and the quest won't be available.

You will need to shoot four targets with the Mesmetron, then speak with them and convince them to put a collar on and go to Paradise Falls. If you can get each person alone, you can have this done without the town they live in freaking out on you. If you are seen, everyone will immediately turn hostile. The four people you need are:

  • Flak from Rivet City
  • Red from Big Town
  • Susan Lancaster from Tenpenny Tower
  • Arkansas from Minefield

You will receive negative karma everyone time you enslave someone and there is a big chance you will piss off entire towns doing this quest, so it is suggested you save just before doing the quest, then finish it and reload your previous save.

See Strictly Business for more specific info.

Even if one or more targets is dead, you still complete the Quest. I finished it after killing Arkansas and Susan. Though I don't know what happens if everyone is dead prior to the quest.

And I finished it without slaving Red (because she died in the Big Trouble in Big Town quest)

When I started this quest (about 20 mins ago), I was only told I needed Flack from Rivet City, and The Sniper from the Minefield. As far as I know, Susan is dead, (I let the Ghouls into Tenpenny) and Red (and indeed the rest of Big Town) have f**ked off somewhere. Is it still worth doing? Or should I leave it for another play through?

I didnt know about this quest until after I beat it... I killed every slaver in the camp cuz I didnt want to give him 500 bottle caps. Now Im too lazy to replay the campaign to get back to it...

This is a stupid quest. I can't support slavery but you have to enslave people to get this achievement. So ridiculous.

Killing people is the equivalent to enslaving them, although you get no bottle caps for kills. Also, if you haven't discovered the place that someone lives, i do beleive you dont have to cpture them, as i have not yet been to Big Town, the German HQ, or minefeild. I was not required to do those people. However, If you have only discovered the home of no or 1 individual(s), i think you need to do all 4 people.
