The Long Dark Wintermute – How to get the Distress Pistol (Flare Gun from Grey Mother)
The Distress Pistol (Flare Gun) is a quest from Grey Mother in The Long Dark Wintermute. It is a great weapon against wolves or if you need to light up an area.
Before you can get the distress pistol you need to raise trust with grey mother to 175. The way to do that is by giving her supplies like military mre, sticks, mushrooms or by completing quests for her.
A great way to work on trust is by picking up every stick and every mushroom you find during your travels. It raises trust only a bit you come across these items constantly in the game.
After Grey Mother trusts you enough, ask her about protection and she will tell you about a distress pistol in a house nearby. Follow the marker on the map and check out the house she points you to. The distress pistol is under a small carpet in the bedroom.
