Recommended Videos

The developers of Genshin Impact have crafted an exceptional video game yet again that immerses players in a world of science fiction and fantasy, with numerous quests and activities to engage in. As players journey through Honkai Star Rail, they will come across a Companion Mission centered on a character named Hook, known as “Old Foreman’s Treasure.” This mission tasks players with assisting Hook along with Swetta in recovering her father’s stolen detector, which will all start once you receive a text from Julian. Assuming that you are seeking to identify the one responsible for the theft of the detector, let us begin our investigation to uncover the real culprit.

Who stole the detector in Honkai Star Rail?

The first step to undertaking the quest is to travel to Boulder Town and meet Julian. Following a conversation with him, you can officially begin the quest and proceed to the Great Mine to locate Hook. Upon arrival, you’ll have to engage in a short battle before conversing with Fersman. After this conversation, you must travel to Natasha’s clinic to inquire about Fersman’s condition, where you’ll learn about the theft of his detector. From this point forward, you take charge of the investigation and interrogate the four potential suspects to identify the thief responsible for stealing the detector.

Upon arriving at the scene, you must speak to all four suspects: the Tailor, the Merchant, the Cook, and the Helper. While the Tailor and Helper deny any involvement, the Cook accuses Helper of the theft. However, upon talking to the Merchant, you will learn that the Cook is the true culprit behind the stealing. Before confronting the Cook, you will discover that he has fled the scene. To bring him to justice, you must search for him and catch him in the act with Sampo. Once you have caught the Cook, you’ll engage in a short battle before finally concluding the quest.

Having found the culprit responsible for stealing the detector in the Old Foreman’s Treasure Companion Quest, you can now proceed to catch him. However, as this quest involves a few battles, it is advisable to equip yourself with a thorough understanding of the game’s battle mechanics. To aid in this, we suggest referring to our guide on how to perform follow-up attacks in Honkai Star Rail, which will provide valuable insights and help you prepare for any upcoming battles.
