How’s it going, warrior? Still in one piece? Good. Look, there's a little job for you. If you pull through, we could talk more about trust. Interested? Look here then, soldier. I had a pal who drove a tanker truck for the Factory. Managed to take the family out before the conflict, but returned to get the rest of his stuff and perished. He lived in a dorm, the bigger one. Can’t remember the room, I was there only once and was wasted as hell to boot. There was a poster of some chick on the wall for sure, the rest is foggy. To cut the long story short, he had an old bronze pocket watch with a chain. Sort of a family heirloom. If it wasn’t snatched by anyone, then there are two options - either it’s hidden in his room somewhere, or in his car. Find me these watches. I want to get them out for the kid, his old man was not exactly a dipshit, worth to be remembered.


  • Must be level 2 to start this quest.



Now that was unexpected! Not the most important of deliveries, but thanks anyway. It's not related to business. This is, you might say, personal. Oh and just so you know, I won’t be found wanting, so keep it in mind for the future who’s best to work with.

Head into the map Customs. The Machinery key is required to access the Bronze pocket watch. So if you do not have one, head to room 205 located on the second floor of the three-story dorms building in the south.

  • To enter the room you'll need to jump on top of debris blocking the hall and crouch to get inside the doorway of the room. The Machinery key can be found within the brown jacket beside the wardrobe.

  • After obtaining the key, head north to the fuel tanker truck that is located at the construction site. The driver side door of the cabin can be unlocked with the Machinery key.

  • Inside, the Bronze pocket watch can be found laying on the floor in front of the seat.

  • After picking up the pocket watch, it will be placed in your quest items inventory. You must successfully extract with the pocket watch to hand it in. If you die before extraction, you will have to retrieve it again. Hand the pocket watch over to Prapor to complete the quest.
