Fallout 4 Bug: The Nuclear Option

Fallout 4 is amazing. Still, a game with such a huge repertoire of possibilities has some bugs. This post is for all the tormented souls who face the Bug in the main quest “The Nuclear Option”

WARNING: Spoiler ahead! Don’t proceed, unless you want to (well, yes.)

I’m talking about this glitch in the game: After having placed the thermonuclear warhead in the reactor of the Institute, you are supposed to get teleported back to Proctor Ingram, together with Maxon. Unfortunately, the teleportation brings me back to the surface, while the other key-NPC stay in the teleportation room of the Institute.
A hint for a unlucky second teleport would be, that the game loads for a while, comes back and immediately loads a second time, bringing me back to the surface.

A walk-around is the following console command

moveto mq302bos

That brings you to Proctor Ingram and you can continue the quest.

Found vai the Steam Community. Thanks! I’m just conserving this valuable piece of information for the future generations here ;-)
