During the Silver Shroud mission in Fallout 4, you will quite literally have to be the elusive superhero and save Kent Connolly from a bunch of enemies. Here’s how to save him.

There are a number of ways you can save Kent from his impending demise. You can either adopt a brute force, stealth, or persuasion tactic, but we’ll run you through them all to give you an idea of which is going to work best for you.

Brute Force

First off is the brute force approach. As the name for this suggests, it’s all about letting your guns to do the talking before Sinjin can even get a word out. There are two different methods of doing this, though. First, if you’re playing on one of the lower difficulty levels, you may be able to use a high powered, scoped rifle and pop his head right off. We’d suggest using Jet to allow you to perfectly line up your shot, but that’s up to you. Using V.A.T.S’ critical hit option, if you’ve got one saved up, is a pretty useful way of taking Sinjin out of the equation quickly.

Alternatively, you could go for the close-range option. Here, you’ll want to equip your most powerful shotgun, something like the Combat Shotgun will do the trick. Exit the elevator and let Sinjin talk. Keep walking forward until he tells you not to take another step forward. If you’ve got it, use some Psyho Jet to up your damage, damage resistance, action points and to also slow time. Unload your shotgun right into Sinjin’s head, and a couple to Avery stood next to him. Throw a grenade at the other two nearby raiders, but make sure they’ve not already began to charge at you, otherwise you risk blowing up Kent in the explosion.

Another alternative to saving Kent is to take the stealth approach. When the elevator opens, immediately crouch using the R3 button and take it slow. You can remain hidden and kill Sinjin’s men to the left and right of the platform if you’re careful enough. With the raiders taken care of, take aim for Avery, as if you kill Sinjin first, she will kill Kent immediately.

Once she is taken care of, pop Sinjin with a few powerful shots to the head. Remember, don’t use explosives as they’re not your best friend in situations that require a careful hand in Fallout 4. After all, Kent isn’t made of titanium.

Your final option is to use your words and charisma rather than your weapons to resolve the situation. There are a number of different ways you can do this. First, if you have a high enough charisma level and the ‘Intimidation’ perk, you can pacify Sinjin and his bodyguards before the dialogue even starts just by pointing your gun at them. For this to work, however, you will need to be a higher level than Sinjin, so this may not work for everyone.

Alternatively, you can always use your powers of persuasion to get Sinjin to target you, rather than Kent. In order to do this, you’ll need to have a Charisma level of about eight or nine and to select the correct dialogue option when talking with Sinjin. If you’re quite a way off this Charisma level, remember Grape Mentats give you a huge boost to your Charisma stat for a limited amount of time. Pop a couple of these and try again.

With any luck, Sinjin will target you, leaving Kent cowering on the floor as you clear the room of threats. And that’s all there is to saving Kent Connolly and becoming the true Silver Shroud that Fallout 4’s wasteland needs.
