The Outer Worlds Deal With the Raptidons | Where to find gas canisters

The Outer Worlds Deal With the Raptidons mission lets you be more peaceful towards these monsters that you almost always shoot without thinking twice. This is an optional objective in the mission The Doom that Came to Roseway, which encourages you to take them out non-lethally. Dr. Anton Crane  asks you to do so in said mission as an optional objective. So how do you take out the raptidons non-lethally? It turns out that you need a special item. So here’s how to find the three gas canisters in The Outer Worlds to gas the raptidons without killing them.

You will need to find three different gas canisters in the Underground Lab in order to lull the beasts to sleep. They are not hidden very well, but that place is like a maze so it can be easy to miss them. You can look at a picture above to see what they look like.

The first one is on the picture. It’s in a side room in the southeast part of the map. You’ll see it by some racks and a dead raptidon.

The second one is Vaughn’s Lab by a computer you’ll need for another side mission, which is near the conniving Cassandra O’Malley. It looks a bit like a morgue.

As the above map shows, it’s in the southern part of the lab.

Now that you have the canisters, you have to take them to the correct place. You find this place in gas canister receptacle in the Raptidon Incubation room. Go the receptacle first in the northern end of the room then go to the computer in the south end of the room to activate it. Be sure to be sneaky as causing a ruckus can surely mess up your plans. Once you’re done in that area, you can speak to Anton Crane.

So what if you don’t want to play it slow and find these gas canisters? Well, you can kill them if you want. Dr. Anton Crane might not be too pleased but nothing is stopping you from plugging them up with lead, lasers, or electricity.
