Simply put, we send a small two-man team to scout a location and evaluate its technical and historical relevance. Saves us from sending an entire retrieval team to a worthless location

— Proctor Quinlan, Fallout 4

Learning Curve is a repeatable quest that can be obtained in the Commonwealth in Fallout 4.


Research patrols are an integral part of the Brotherhood's operations in the wasteland. As such, the Sole Survivor as a Knight will escort a single Scribe to a location that might otherwise be a waste of time for an entire retrieval team.


  • Talk to Proctor Quinlan and accept an assignment.
  • Talk to the Scribe down in the airport and travel to the assigned area.
  • Locate the target and wait for the Scribe to extract the data.
  • Return to Quinlan for the reward.

Quest stages

Speak to the Brotherhood Scribe I spoke to Proctor Quinlan and agreed to escort a Brotherhood Scribe on a research patrol. I was told to meet the Scribe at the airport where h'll give me further details on the mission location.
Escort the Scribe to the data at <location> The Brotherhood Scribe has given me the mission location. I need to keep him alive, and find the terminal that contains the data he needs.
Protect the Brotherhood Scribe I was able to locate the data, so the Scribe has begun his extraction. I need to keep him alive while he works.
Return to Proctor Quinlan The Scribe has finished collecting the data. I still need to look out for him as we return to Proctor Quinlan on the Prydwen. If he dies, the data will be lost, and the mission would be a failure.
