After receiving the quest Old Guns you will need to go back to the castle, for those that might have trouble with its location, the castle is just south-east of Diamond City. Once you make it to the castle, you will need to talk to a lady named Ronnie who will take you to the General quarters, where you will have to go into workshop mode to remove a pile of rubble in a door way.

After traversing the castle’s lower level, you will eventually come across a sentry bot named Sarge, which is really tough and will require some of your best weapons and armor to defeat it. After beating the bot you will need to follow Ronnie to a console where she will type a password to unlock a door to proceed onward.

After going through the locked door, you will need to go to the west bastion to the armory room where you will need to get some artillery schematics, artillery supplies. In addition, you will need to get some flares and artillery smoke grenades from a box that is at the bottom of a shelf. After grabbing the necessary items you will need to talk to Ronnie, and then go into workshop mode to build at least one artillery unit at the castle. Something worth noting, you must assign one of the settlers to the artillery units you have at the castle.

Once you are done with that segment, you will need to go outside of the castle and mark the surrounding areas with the flares and smoke grenades to see if the artillery is capable of defending the castle. Once you pass that part, you will need to go back to Ronnie and barter with her during her business hours so that you can buy the Gauss rifle named the Last Minute.
