Returning the Favor is a quest that is obtained in the Commonwealth in Fallout 4..


As the Sole Survivor begins their journeys across the Commonwealth, they discover a farm near Sanctuary Hills, that is controlled by the Abernathy family. That is, what is left of it. Blake Abernathy recently lost his daughter, Mary. He wants the Sole Survivor to retrieve a memento of her, looted by the raiders.


  1. This quest becomes available immediately upon arrival at the Abernathy farm location. Blake Abernathy will mention that a while back, raiders hit their farm and killed his daughter. Having buried her and mostly moved on, Brian will ask for final closure, in the form of getting his daughter’s locket back from the raider gang.
  2. The Sole Survivor will then need to travel to the nearby USAF satellite station Olivia location, in order to retrieve the locket. The locket can be found in the master loot box for this location, meaning that the Sole Survivor may retrieve it with or without killing the raiders. This being said, the raiders cannot be negotiated with, and will attack upon discovery of the Sole Survivor.
  1. Travel to USAF satellite station Olivia.
  2. Locate the tool box in the basement, down near the rear storage area, by the door with the screwdriver wedged inside.
  3. Retrieve the locket.
  4. Return it to Blake.


The locket counts as a quest item, and cannot be sold for a profit. Once handed over to Brian, and the quest has been completed, this locket will be removed from the game, and can only be re-acquired through illegitimate means.
