  • Recruit an Ally: Certain NPCs can come to live in your C.A.M.P., help defend it, and offer you daily quests. Some also bring story quests and romance opportunities. Steamy.
  • More Events and Dailies: Such as Riding Shotgun and Radiation Rumble. There are also four new daily quests to explore.
