  • After collecting them, return to the starting delivery truck to open a crate that provides you with a blue rarity weapon named Raven.

Initiating The Quest

Before activating the mission, you need to unlock Fast Travels first. This is compulsory as opening fast travel welcomes a new type of zombie to Bel-Air, called Slobbers. Without Fast Travel, the mission won’t start as the final boss is a Slobber.

Fast Travels will unlock for you once you complete the 14th primary story mission, The Red Mist. There is no further requirement; you will be guided to fast travel points once you finish the quest.

To start the lost & found quest, you must be on Alpine Drive south of the Glitterati corner. A delivery truck will be standing at that point. Pick up the “Signature Required” journal lying on the ground by that truck to activate the quest. Picking it up will give you the necessary objectives to complete the mission.

Follow The Mailman’s Paper Trail To A Kick-ass New Weapon

Finding the mailman requires you to find clues first. In this mission, the indications are parcels or packages that spawn at two locations. You must visit the locations and inspect the boxes to understand the exact location of the mailman.

After that, you will relocate to another area facing Wayne, the mailman.

Goat Pen Package

Visit the Goat Pen mansion on Alpine Drive. The mansion’s name is displayed on the map, so it won’t give you a hard time finding this mission. Locate the front door that is to the North of the Goat Pen.

The package will be placed outside the front door to the right. Approach and inspect it so you know if the mailman was here or not.

Your goal is to defeat him by any means possible. His companions will also spawn with him, so you must kill them. Wayne has his unique ability where he spits poison on you. Ensure that you dodge it to avoid getting poisoned.

Keeping long-range weapons like snipers or semi-auto rifles is the best way to fight the mailman. Always maintain a safe distance from him and other zombies to survive.

Swipe The Mailman’s Keys

By following all the instructions, you will successfully defeat Wayne. Collect the mailman’s keys from his dead body to proceed further in the mission. A med kit will also be there in case you need healing.
