Once in a Blue Moon: Costa Business & Unmasking the Myth

Updated: Apr 8



**SUBJECT TO CHANGE PORTING TO LIVE SERVERS**


With thanks to Garust, Vicyorus, SugarBombs.Rads, Coffee888, and GamerMOM.


Dedicated to Carl, thank you for your wild imagination.

 

To start, head to Big Bend Tunnel East.


The quest will pop up on your screen and in your pip boy.


Follow the map marker to Vinny.


Interact with Vinny and select "I'm looking for some work" in the dialogue box.


Vinny will ask you to go and speak to one of his staff, find out why they are feeling miserable, and then return back to him.


This is a series of "daily" side quests. Each day you will need to go and visit Vinny and he will tell you which staff member to speak to next.


There are 8 staff members in total to find and speak to. You can only visit one staff member every 20 hours and you need to visit each one in the order that the game tells you.


I have kept the quests vague as there are a lot more dialogue and storyline options, but I don't want to spoil them.

Kieran will send you to Nuka World on Tour to collect 5 Nuka-Cola trucks.


Once you arrive at Nuka-World, there are map markers for you to follow to the location of each truck.

Hi, I'm Kat or Duchess

I'm an Australian data miner who writes farming, event, and food buff guides for Fallout 76.

I believe that all knowledge and information should be free, which is why my guides will never be locked behind a paywall. However, running a website and photo and video editing software does not come cheaply.

​​

So, If you found my guides helpful, please consider buying me a ko-fi (coffee) using the link below.

​​

All monies go towards the tools for writing my guides and maybe for an actual cup of coffee or 3 ;)

Alternatively, share my guides with your fellow vault dwellers and help them to survive the wasteland.
