Deacon’s location

You’ll first meet Deacon under the Old North Church. When you get to the place, go inside and head to the basement. After you’ve reached a dead end, look for a crest with letters on the wall. Spell out railroad with the red arrow by turning the outer dial, then pressing the inside. As the door opens up, you’ll see Deacon and several other Railroad members.

How to get Deacon

To recruit Deacon, you’ll have to finish a quest called Tradecraft. After you help him deal with the Railroad’s problems, he’ll offer to travel with you.

Deacon’s abilities & perks

Abilities: Deacon is good at all things stealth – sneaking, disguises, etc. He’s also fun to spend time with, but won’t be all that useful to most players. Stealth builds are the obvious exception – his perk is of great help there.
Perk: Cloak & Dagger (+20% sneak attack damage and +20% Stealth Boy duration)

How to increase relationship level with Deacon

Deacon is the only human companion you can’t have a romantic relationship with. Increasing his affinity can be done by joining The Railroad, advancing through their ranks and helping their members.

    Is it not a mistake calling Deacon a “human male”? He is a G3 Synth as far as what he just told me…

    1. L

      This is true both him and Glory are Synths based of what he said. Mind if I ask what you did with his “recall code” BTW?

      1. T

        you should read it.

      Deacon is lying, as usual. Shoot him until he’s dead, loot him, and you’ll see there’s no synth component.

  2. J

    Yeah he’s a synth. I heard him say it too.

    1. P

      If you read the recall code to him, you find out he was just joking. He lies about shit all the time.

        Dammit Deacon

    You guys are so gullible. He was lying about *spoiler removed*.

  4. B

    No, Deacon is a human. If you pass his speech check demanding proof that he’s a Synth, he stammers and says he doesn’t have any.

  5. T

    Whatever you do don’t take Deacon to Virgil’s with you. It cause him to aggro and then you fail the quest to bring him the serum.

    1. T

      Nevermind. I think I just waited too long to return to him.

      1. D

        Nope. It’s the power armor you were wearing; take off the helmet before entering.
        You’ll notice that some people have different responses if you’re wearing a full power armor set… this is one of the more extreme examples.

        1. B

          I dunno, I was wearing full X-01 when I met him and he seemed fine with it.

    2. A

      Yup, I had Deacon with me and was in full Power armor, but Virgil was just a bit suspicious if the Institute sent me, nothing more.
