Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Hell's Gate is started if you are captured by the Survivalist Raiders. Once you have been knocked unconscious with a stun grenade, you wake up in Athens-Tec Uranium Pit.

You will have dialogue with with the raider leader, Elsdragon. He explains you are now a slave and must prove your worth. He sends you to the bottom of the pit to kill a super mutant that has been causing trouble.

Once you are finished talking, jump down to the bottom of the pit, you wont die. Once you are down, you will be in a large open cave. Mevile the Voiceless greets you upon landing. The landing site has several terminals and miners that can be found as well as some loot.

Walk thorough the cave, while fighting past your way through ghoul roamers, until you reach the final room where you will find a Super mutant Behemoth who you need to kill. If you have a high enough science skill, there are several traps that can be activated to kill the mutant, most noteworthy is a large laser weapon that can be controlled with a detonator. With high Charisma and Speech you can convince a group of miners to try to defeat the mutant. On the way to the behemoth Shogath, Mandrake will appear and initiates a dialogue. With checks of charisma and intelligence, you can convince him to help you. If you fail, Mandrake will attack you. He will be invisible the whole time until he is defeated, and his attacks will take large chunks of your health off.

Once you have killed Shogath, you can loot the key to the elevator back to the surface from his body. Once you reach the mine entrance, you can talk to Elsdragon again; he will give you an objective to join Nos at the Vertibird platform where they will depart and this quest ends.

All weapons and ammunition will be taken from your companions. Also Kira Mann and Jamie Campbell will lose their companion weapons with magic ammo: Kira's Laser Rifle and Jamie's Service Rifle.

If you had robot-companions A L P H A and B-6-RK with you, you will find them after completing the quest in the Shrine of the Lightning Gods. They will be broken, their repair requires skills Science 80, Repair 60, 3 Scrap metal and 2 Scrap electronics for each.
