Defend the Artillery is a quest in Fallout 4.


The Brotherhood of Steel has identified the Minutemen and their settlements as a potential threat. One of the artillery-equipped settlements is threatened by a task force and the Survivor is asked to intervene.


  • This quest is given by either everyone's favorite Minuteman or Radio Freedom. Turning it down or letting it expire will reduce happiness at the target settlement by -10.
  • Once accepted, the player has to travel to the target settlement and either build defenses or wait for the attack to occur. The Brotherhood will come in force. Defeating them will add +10 to settlement happiness, while failing the quest will lower it by -25.
