What is the Old Guns Glitch Fix?
The Fallout 4 Old Guns Glitch Fix is a possible solution for users who are having a hard time completing this minute men quest. It involves returning to the castle, building/assigning artillery, throwing a smoke grenade in the targeting area, and then speaking to Preston Garvey. I will explain what the problem was, how I fixed it, and suggestions on how to get your game working. I also have included a video tutorial at the bottom of this page for more clarification. If there are other questions regarding this, or if this helped fix your game, please let me know. I know I was pretty frustrated and nuked everybody, but then I came to my senses and restarted my save file and then threw off all my clothes and shot myself in the heart with some ultra jet.
By the way….does uh, someone have any jet they’re not using? I could use a fix. E-mail me here.
What is the problem?
People are reporting bugs where they are unable to control the minutemen or can’t assign a settler. When they throw a smoke grenade nothing happens. They have power but nothing is happening.
What is the solution?
Get in the habit of having multiple save files, it will only save you tears later, which you can later cash in for karma (in real life). Change outfits. Seriously. During this mission I was decked out in power armor. When I equipped the smoke grenades, they did not look like smoke grenades, they looked like mines. I also notices while wearing the power armor that the quantities of the mine would not change in my inventory either. So I reverted to an old save, tried it again same thing happened. So I reverted to an old save again, then decided to drop all of my stuff and equip the Minute Man Outfit.
For some reason it worked…when I went to the designated area to throw the smoke grenades, they were actually smoke grenades and not smoke mines, or generic mines. This helped the quest further along.
Another reported problem
If the artillery bombs don’t fall yet and you go back to the center of the castle near the radio, you’ll find that it has broken down, and you need to power it back up. If you are stuck here, try storing all generators (Get into your build menu) and the option to store them will be at the bottom of the screen. You need 10 power, instead of building two large generators, try building two small ones and on large one, and wiring them to the radio. Make sure the radio is on.
Through all of these methods, make sure to save often and before you do something. Test it, let me know what works. This is what worked for me…after I nuked them (restarted). Maybe they knew I meant business and just stopped their glitching. Glitches.
tl;dr Go to an earlier save (or don’t) Change whatever outfit you are wearing to the minutemen outfit (you receive this off of a skeleton in the basement).
Try again. Use two small generators and a large one to power the radio
Wait by the candy store until all the artillery drops. Possibly take some ultra jet before throwing the smoke grenades. Let me know if this works!
