The Outer Worlds includes Companion Quests that are optional to complete, and are played through to strengthen the relationship with non-player characters (NPCs) in the party.
Each companion has their own quests, some more than one that not only rewards players with good loot, money and XP but could also potentially unlock more quests.
Worst Contact Quest Guide
This is another Companion Quest. To start the quest, go to Ellie who will be on the fifth floor of the Medical Bay of the Groundbreaker, at the same location from where you accessed the quest Solution Vital.
You will need to talk to Jessie in the quarantine area. If you possess the Holographic Shroud and a cartridge, you can easily disguise yourself by just going inside, otherwise you will have to use an alternate entrance to the area which will be located behind Gladys’ compartment.
For this, you will have to crouch past and around a squatter’s spot. Head to the end of the hall and use the intercomm to meet Jessie Doyle.
You will have to convince Udom Bedford to clear all of Jessie’s debts to the Board. Udom Bedford is the Board’s representative on Groundbreaker.
Talk to Udom Bedford, and you can offer to pay Doyle’s fine or pass a persuade check to convince him.
Return to the Medical Bay and talk to Jessie and Ellie to complete your Companion Quest.
You will get close to 27,000 XP, one thousand (1,000) Bit Cartridge, Groundbreaker/Board reputation as reward and Ellie will also ask you if she can join your party.
