Jiggs' Loot

Corpse of Prime
location: Museum of Technology
given by: terminals
reward: Gun Locker Key, some minor loot

Jiggs' Loot is an unmarked Fallout 3 quest.

It starts when you activate a terminal on the ground floor of the Museum of Technology and receive a note called Tech Museum Loot.


Treasure Hunt

There is a secret series of codes hidden within access terminals around the museum, as part of a series of security tests for a scavenger, Prime's allocation of loot for another comrade expected to show up at the Museum. The first terminal is on the wall straight ahead when you enter the museum. As soon as you enter the west wing, the second terminal will be on your immediate left (it will be the second terminal to the right). The third terminal is on the bottom floor near the Delta IX Rocket. The safe is located west of the planetarium in the security office that overlooks the Virgo II. The terminal codes are:

  • Terminal #001 - 19 (Ground floor, across the entrance room) (The same terminal needed to start the quest)
  • Terminal #002 - 53 (In the Museum West Wing, which is past the Vault tour) (Just after entering, seen ahead and a little to the left. The furthest terminal from you)
  • Terminal #003 - 113 (Ground floor by the Delta rocket)

Although Prime alludes that he has left '...the usual breadcrumbs' for the player to follow, the clue is actually in Prime's name, as the correct numbers are all prime values (divisible by only themselves and the number 1, for example, 2, 3, 5, 7, etc). Successfully unlocking all three terminals will grant the player the password for the Security Office terminal, allowing them to unlock the safe. You only get one shot at this so if you make an error, you will not be able to complete this quest and therefore be unable to obtain the Xuanlong Assault Rifle.

Inside, the safe holds a few hundred caps (200 approx.), sundry other valuables, and the Gun Locker Key for the planetarium office's cabinet. This cabinet contains several firearms, including a Laser Pistol or Missile Launcher and assorted ammo (greatly varies, usually 3x assault rifles and a random weapon/ammo). There is a Nuka-Cola Quantum in the office as well.

The player also receives another note from Prime, Earned Your Share, in which he tells his buddy to meet him at the "usual spot", the Diner near Jury Street Metro Station, which is marked on your map the moment you access the password. By the time you arrive, Prime is dead, torn apart (lying on a table behind the counter), but is still worth finding, as he is in possession of 500 more caps, explosives, ammo, and a unique weapon, the Xuanlong Assault Rifle. A couple of Raiders might be at the location, and a Super Mutant Behemoth spawns west of there.


  • The number in the terminal where you start the quest will be #000, it's at the bottom of the list of choices in the terminal. After reading it will change it to #001, where you enter the first of the three passwords.
  • You can also get this quest (and the related note) from the terminal next to the safe.
  • If you fail to complete or make a mistake on the terminals you will not be able to solve the puzzle again so be careful!
  • You have to enter the prime numbers to unlock the safe; however, the gun cabinet can be lockpicked (hard difficulty) if you have a high enough skill... Just in case you find the cabinet first or want the extra experience you get for lockpicking.
  • The quest can be "solved" using trial and error by saving your game before picking a code and loading if the code fails.
  • Some tips to help the people who need help:
    • Any even number greater than 2 is NOT prime.
    • Any number which has digits that add up to a multiple of 3 is NOT prime. (e.g. 111, 1+1+1=3, NOT prime)
    • Any number that ends in 5 or 0(other than 5) is NOT prime.
    • A prime number is a whole number (no fractions) that should only be divisible by 1 or itself (when divided this number should have no remainder) . That should narrow it down enough for you to choose the correct number.
  • For extra help, go to
  • Mysteriously, the player is not actually given the password to the locked Terminal in the Security Overlook in the West Wing. The game simply brings up the Earned your share note, perhaps this is because all four of the computers are networked together, and the unlock command is automatically generated.



  • You can bypass all the hacking and lockpicking by hiding in the Planetarium and waiting for the 2 Super Mutants to start arguing in the middle. Once you attack them (keep trying to hide), they'll both run for the utility room to get the missile launcher even though they're not supposed to know about it and the locker is locked. Just make sure you snipe the one with the missile launcher before he hits you once they come out of there. (Confirmed on all)
  • Sometimes unlocking the third terminal doesn't give you the password for the security office. Even after hacking the security computer you cannot unlock the safe. You can try unlocking the terminals in different orders though, this allegedly helps in some cases.
    • PC Fix (may be All Fix): reloading a save game from before you entered the Museum of Technology and unlocking the terminals in the following order circumvents this bug: 3/1/2.
  • Prime's empty body: after activating all the terminals and getting the note, Prime's body sometimes does not show up in its entirety (only a hand or foot) at Jury Street Metro, and whether or not the whole body is present, no loot is found on Prime. This bug is caused by another NPC looting his corpse while you're away.
    • PC Fix: open the console and click the body (or body part). When 'Prime' comes up at the top of the screen, type 'resurrect' and hit enter. Exit the console and blow his head apart, and voila - all the original loot.
