The Doom That Came To Roseway is a side quest in Obsidian’s The Outer Worlds.
Your task is to investigate the distress call and later retrieve Anton’s research.
Here’s a walkthrough of The Doom That Came To Roseway in The Outer Worlds.
This side quest begins after landing on the Roseway landing pad.
Head to Roseway
Your first objective is to find out who sent the distress call in Roseway. Go towards Roseway.
You’ll come across Raptidons along the way.
Enter the main town of Roseway.
Speak to Anton, Orson and Vaughn
The location of all 3 NPCs are shown in the map, marked by the green objective symbol.
The first guy is Orson Shaw.
He’ll tell you about the schematics he left in the storage facility. A new side quest will start, and the existing The Distress Signal quest will be updated.
Next, speak to Anton Crane at the Comms.
Ask him about the distress call and it was indeed sent by him.
During the conversation, you can intimidate him to make it quick and gain EXP.
After speaking with him, you’ll get his lab keycard and pass code.
Lastly, speak to Vaughn. He will have another side quest for you. They’re all related in a way.
Head to the Auntie-Biotics Lab
You will now have three new objectives – Find Anton’s Safe, Eliminate the Outlaws and Deal with Raptidons.
The Auntie-Biotics Lab is southeast of Roseway.
Enter the secret lab.
Speak to Porter
Inside, you’ll meet the chief guard. Speak to him.
Convince him that you’re sent by Anton to solve the problem.
Find Anton’s Safe
You should now see 3 objectives all on the map.
The nearest one should be Anton’s Safe. Go to the safe and you’ll find out that the content is missing.
Deal with the outlaws
As the research data is gone, you need to find it. It has been taken by Cassandra who leads the outlaws.
She’s stuck in a cell. Speak to her.
There are two ways to handle this – either clear the Raptidons or clear the security.
Either way, you’ll need to get a security keycard to open her cell door.
Clear the Raptidons
The Raptidons are nearby. You can choose to clear them first.
You can either kill them all, or use the suppression system to clear them.
To use the suppression system, you need to install sedative gas canisters.
The gas canisters are located all around the room. Insert all 3.
Once you’ve inserted the canisters, head to the terminal at the opposite end of the room.
Use the terminal to ventilate gas and the Raptidons will be dealt with. It will be much easier if you can just kill the Raptidons directly.
Get the keycard
Next, you have to get the keycard.
You need to get the card from the security console. Open the cell door using lockpicking.
Use the console to print a security keycard.
Help Cassandra escape
Once you have either dealt with the security guards or cleared the Raptidons, release Cassandra with the keycard.
The cell door is on the other side. You will have to go a bigger round to reach the door.
Speak with her once she’s freed.
During the conversation, you can persuade her to get Anton’s research data. You can also lie or intimidate but they require much higher levels.
Return to Anton
Finally, go back to Roseway to speak with Anton Crane.
During the conversation, you can lie to him saying the outlaws got the research.
This way, you can sell the research to Gladys under The Distress Call side quest. You should get 3,000 bits for selling the data.
