NOTE: If you do Strictly Business first, you will not be able to do this quest. However you can do this and then Strictly Business.

This achievement can be done in at any difficulty (and you can change the difficulty at any time). This can be a tough quest to complete early on because of the large number of super mutants you'll come across.

You can get this quest by either visiting Big Town and talking to the inhabitants to find out that the people of Big Town are being captured and taken to the German Town Police Department OR you can just go strait to the Police Department itself and talk to one of the captives (Red) to save yourself some time. Big Town is almost directly north of Vault 101 by the river and the German Town PD is about 10 degrees east of north across the river and inland a little from Big Town.

Once you get into the police department, you need to make your way to the ground floor (if you're not already there). You'll find Red in a cell and you either need to pick the cell lock, unlock it with a terminal, or hunt down the mutant with the key which can be Super Mutant Overlord if you have Broken Steel installed.

Once you free Red you can just get out of the building and fast travel to Big Town (or you can stay and try and free her friend Scout but this is optional). Once you return Red, the achievement should pop.
