Walkthrough for The First Step, a Minuteman radiant quest in Fallout 4.
As a radiant quest, the particulars of The First Step are random, including the settlement involved, and the target area you’ll need to clear. To start it, you’ll need to escort Preston Garvey and the other survivors back to Sanctuary to finish up the quest When Freedom Calls, after which Preston should assign this quest to you (possibly in addition to other radiant quest). If Preston doesn’t give you this quest at this point, you may need to clear some of the aforementioned radiant Minuteman quests and claim more settlements.
While random, once started you’ll generally be sent to an already-inhabited settlement somewhat near Sanctuary, where you’ll be told by one of the settlers that they need you to clear a raider-infested location nearby. If you completed the first two main quests, Out of Time and When Freedom Calls without extraneous exploration, you’ll likely be sent to Tenpines Bluff, whereupon you’ll be told to clear the raiders out of the Corvega Assembly Plant.
Once the start point and target gang of raiders are determined, this is a fairly simple extermination mission; toggle the quest active via your Pip-Boy and head to the destination and kill all the marked Raiders you find. If you’re sent to the Corvega Assembly Plant, the journey there can prove more harrowing than the actual Raiders you’re tasked with killing, so while we suggest making this quest a priority, you should probably work your way towards your destination in a methodical manner, perhaps claiming the odd settlement as you go.
Kill the target raiders, then return to the settlers you were fighting for to gain a reward. After that, return to Preston Garvey and he’ll give you another, larger reward, including the Flare Gun and 10x Flares. After completing The First Step, the followup quest [Taking Independence] should begin. If it doesn’t clear some more Minuteman radiant quests and claim more settlements until it does.
