Little Memento Objectives

  • Investigate the Outpost
    Ash has pointed you toward one of his unit's old outposts
    You've found the outpost, but the mercenaries aren't here. They must have left some clues as to where they went.
  • Find the Mercenaries
    It looks like the mercenaries packed up and fled to a nearby waterfall. If they're there, the keepsake box is likely with them.
    The mercenaries appear to have met a grisly fate in the jaws of the Monarch Wilderness. Perhaps one of them had the box in their possession.
  • Return to Ash
    You found a locked box of mementos from Ash's old mercenary unit.
    You found a ledger that seems to indicate that Ash was never part of the mercenary squad using this outpost.


Little Memento Walkthrough

You obtain this quest by talking to Ash, who is drinking at a bar in Amber Heights, up the hill to the left of the entrance. He will ask you to find mementos of his old mercenary team. He will give you Hunter Outpost Keycard and directions to go to Hunter Outpost to get your started.

You can buy Ash a drink for 20 bits, which gives you a chance to hear a story about Monarch.

Abandoned Safehouse is south from Fallbrook, near Forlorn Crossroads. Upon arrival, you'll be attacked by Marauder enemies, and a Scrap Mechanical.You can unlock the front door with the Hunter Outpost Keycard, and go inside. You'll find an Electronic Log and note that Ash is not mentioned. Investigate the nearby terminal and you'll get coordinates for the waterfall camp and 7500xp.

Backtrack your steps to make it across the river and head west toward the waterfall. You'll find a group of dead Marauders, canids and SubLight Thugs and MSI Soldiers, as well as a Vortex Mace, Ordnance Control Armor and "Skeletal Remains". Inspect the remains for 7500xp.

Return to Ash in Amber Heights, and tell Ash what happened. He will ask about the box and you can tell him that he was not in the agent list. He will reveal that he was the one supposed to pick them up that night, but he ditched them for another, more lucrative job. The item you're picking up is just something to sell. You'll get 7500xp for this step

The quest ends and you earn 15000xp and 875 Bit Cartridge.

    • I too, agree with people, this quest is left up in the air with its ending, and unsatisfying, with the box thing / list thing, I'd like to see perhaps a tavern brawl with fists only, for leaving the crew to die, for another job...

      • You only get 875 bits if you mention he's not on the list below hang l giving him the box. You get 625 bits and extra rep if you don't. Mentioning it afterwards does nothing.

        • Anonymous

          If you don't mention that there isn't his name on the agent list you'll get 7% more reputation with the Iconoclasts (on average charm) so if you are going for max rep don't mention the list

            I wish there was a way to just shoot him without angering the rest of the town. Hated that guy once I finished this quest.
