Default Quest Glitch: Breaking The Bank

This quest is in Lynchwood and involves coating a bomb with skag bile by having a skag eat and then vomit up a bomb covered in laxative.

I placed the bomb in the ground, applied the laxative, the skag came out.... and attacked me. Would not eat the bomb. Cannot progress with the quest. I even left it alive and ran far away.

I'll try to work around it by having someone else host, but this quest already messed up once when the guy who I needed to kill for the bomb got knocked off a cliff.

Same problem. I am currently watching the skag wander around the laxative-coated bomb. It seems he is not hungry for high explosives.

Update: Nevermind...left the area and got a new mission. Came back and the little guy ate the bomb.

Had the same problem, went to santuary and came back and the quest moved to the next step.

Yeah, it seems the solution to quite a few quest glitches are to leave the map and return. I had to do it for the Mighty Morphin' quest, and a few others.

I am experiencing this problem also, but the bomb just disappeared. The "cover bomb with laxative" objective is checked off, but no new mission marker is shown.

Same problem. I saved and quit then continued, and when I returned it moved on to "Dig through the skag pile."

This is where I'm at right now. The skag attacked me, and I instinctively shot him. He's dead, no bomb, no progress marker. I completed this mission with another toon too. Now this.

Edit: OK, I followed the advice above, fast traveled away, then back. Then it magically created a skag pile for me to search through, and I was able to complete this.
