Fallout 4: Far Harbor guide

Quest walkthrough, how to get the Marine Armor, best weapons and more.

As if Fallout 4 wasn't expansive enough, the downloadable content pack, Far Harbor, delivers the biggest landmass Bethesda has ever created for an expansion. It takes us to an irradiated island based on a real-world place called Bar Harbor, Maine. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, it's the perfect setting for a self-contained story away from the familiar politics of post-apocalyptic Boston.

What may at first seem like a simple missing person's case will soon have you embroiled in the problems of the island, forcing you to decide which factions deserve their place in this harsh, windswept land. High-level characters (around level 30) are recommended to face the new creatures and enemies you'll encounter on your travels. Even the game itself suggests you don't go it alone, encouraging you to take along a new companion, Old Longfellow, as a guide.

Far Harbor, as the small coastal town is called, is the last bastion for many of the island's residents - its people forced to flee towards the coast, away from a deadly fog that's been relentlessly sweeping through the land. If the fog itself doesn't kill you, the new mutated creatures hiding within just might... unless you follow our guide, of course.

So let us be your Old Longfellow as we talk you through the quests, the various ways you can approach them and the rewards available for each. If you're wondering how to get the Marine Armour, pondering what you need to do to access the different endings, puzzling over a puzzle, or if you just need to find efficient tactics to survive this geiger-counter bothering landscape, you're in the right place.

Fallout 4: Far Harbor quest walkthrough

Progression through the main storyline of Far Harbor is fairly simple and linear to begin with, but at the point of the Best Left Forgotten quest, you have a number of options and branches. Visions in the Fog is optional (though skipping it will involve quite a battle), and which of the last three quests in this list you see to completion will depend on your choices. We've outlined the options in the guides, and made it clear when you will need to move between the different quest walkthroughs.
