Ed-E My Love

Named after the famous song "Eddie My Love" by Aaron Collins.

QUEST REWARD: ED-E receives an upgrade.


1. ED-E appears to have some Enclave log data stored that is triggered by some keywords.

2. Find the patrol Knight Lorenzo told you about to let the Brotherhood of Steel examine ED-E 

3. The patrol Lorenzo mentioned is dead, perhaps there is something on one of the corpses that may be useful.

4. There was a password on one of the Brotherhood corpses. Perhaps that could be used to bring ED-E to Lorenzo.

5. The Followers of the Apocalypse would like to see ED-E to get access to the logs he has stored

6. April Martimer with the Followers would like access to ED-E's data. She promises to upgrade its weapons while she works on it.

7. ED-E'S upgrades are complete.

To begin you must first have ED-E as a companion. To do this you must have a
Repair skill of 65 or a Science skill of 55 . If you lack these but have a Repair skill of 35 then gather [SCRAP METAL x3], [SENSOR MODULE x2], and a [SCRAP ELECTRONICS x1] and return to fix ED-E at the Nash residence in Primm. This will add ED-E as a follower and give you the Enhanced Sensors Perk.

Head to Old Lady Gibson at the Gibson Scrap Yard and talk to her. Mention HELIOS One to trigger a keyword in ED-E's system. After the conversation speak with ED-E and run the playback log. In order to advance the quest you must wait nine in-game days and then travel to HELIOS One. Search the building for Ignacio Rivas and talk to him about ARCHIMEDES. This is another keyword that you can trigger for ED-E. If for some reason you have less than 3 Intelligence then this is not an option. A good way to trigger some of the other keywords is to have Arcade and talk with him. Other keywords include Navarrom, Enclave, Poseidon, Air Force Base, and Eden.

ED-E's Quest

After getting the second log wait another 48 hours and you receive a live transmission from Knight Lorenzo of the Brotherhood of Steel. Help him out by finding his patrol in the REPCONN Headquarters. The patrol is dead lying on the top floor of the building. Loot the corpses for the [BROTHERHOOD OF STEEL MISSION HOLOTAPE] and the [NOTE: MISSION STATEMENT XV-56]. From here head to Hidden Valley to receive a message from April Martimer who wants you to bring ED-E to her instead of the Brotherhood of Steel.

From here either take ED-E to Knight Lorenzo, which requires being on the good side of the Brotherhood of Steel, to have ED-E gain upgraded armor after a 72 hour wait period. If you take ED-E to April in the Old Mormon Fort and drop him off for 72 hours then he gets a weapon upgrade. After each wait you will receive a quest update that ED-E's upgrades are complete. Head back to Primm where you initially got him to find him new and improved. Note that this is a different model of ED-E so his inventory and commands are reset, be sure to remove any items of value before turning him over.

So I Talked To Old Lady Gibson,it triggered ED-E, then I did the mission and hooked the Mirrors back up,finished the mission,did not kill any NCR and spoke to Ignacio Rivas,My intelligence is 6 and I have Boone with me yet when I do exactly as the video suggest it some how does not trigger ED-E, not do you have to wait 9days after O.L.G (Old Lady Gibson)for it to work or as Long as I find Rivas in which case I'm Glitching out or something like a few missions and I am not about to restart this long Game so what's what and whats my other options. instead of being a brute I chose Barter and to talk my way through missions to see what it does and perhaps my next game if I play again I will be Death Bringer but know who to kill and not to kill, so this is all I have, Alley Oop pass to the people who know the answers now please so we can slam dunk this for the ED-E Point.
