This achievement is missable but you can restore it only once for a new attempt! Unless you already played the Pitt.

If you were like me and wanted to do a few sidequests during the main story line or finish the main story line real quick. The distress call won't be in your Radio log anymore.It also bounds to happen if you play Operation Anchorage or Point Lookout before the mission Waters of Life. Anyway let's get to the point;

There is a way to get it back after you've done but you only have one chance to do it. Play the DLC; The Pitt get all the achievements of the Pitt and make sure you find all Steel Ignots before you finish up the quests of the Pitt. After you've finished it up and leave the Pitt you get a message that you have a new Emergency/Distress Call. Fast Travel right away to Megatown and listen to it and the Quest will begin.

If you don't do it right away you'll lose the only oppurtunity to do the quest (and recollect the bobblehead if you missed it), which forces you to start a new playthrough for 2 achievements.

Hope this helps if you have any questsions just comment me.

Good luck!


Q: If I don't have The Pitt installed/downloaded yet is it still possible to receive the distress call again?
A: Yes it's still possible to get the distress call again but make sure you do it right away after you finished The Pitt when you installed/downloaded it.
