I agreed to help Trudy at the Drumlin diner with killing some raiders. In the process, I accidentally shot Patrick while we were fighting the raiders. Both characters are now hostile. I tried to leave that place for a while and continue with another story line, but even after many days they still remember my mistake.

Is there some kind of cheat to fix this?

You need to wait far enough to trigger a cell reset.

This takes, at most, 20 in-game days, and you CANNOT visit anywhere near that area at all (no checking every day; it resets the timer).

The most reliable way to trigger this is to sleep for 20 days at a far away settlement.


  • I do not know if OP is playing on survival difficulty. But that could take 35 days to reset. Source 1 and Source 2. Jul 13, 2020 at 5:01
  • Will settlements get attacked if I sleep for 20 days? Jul 14, 2020 at 11:30
