When I get past the main door at Vault 81 and talk to the Overseer, I can't go any further. The door into where the elevator is is inaccessible. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to complete a quest first?

  • Do you happen to be playing on PS4 or Xbox One?

  • Yes I spoke to the overseer and the vault Tec gard Oct 19 '16 at 17:09
  • I'm playing on Ps4 Oct 19 '16 at 17:10
  • Did you pass the speech check or did you just pay the 3 fusion core entrance fee?

  • I passed the speech test Oct 19 '16 at 17:15

It looks like this is what is happening, since you are playing on PS4 and passed the speech check to enter. From the wikia page for the Vault 81 quest:

When you pass the persuasion check there is a chance that the door used to head deeper into the vault will not open and remain inaccessible. There is no currently found fix for the issue.

As mentioned in the quote, there is no fix for this as of right now.


Man u gotta let the kid take you on a tour around the vault then save a kitty (here kitty, kitty) and then the next week (in-game) u have to go back to the vault and another quest starts follow it and you end up opening the door from the other side with a female version of codsworth

  • Totally wrong door. They can't even get down the vault yet.
