We examine homogeneous solitons of the ambient obstruction flow and, in particular, prove that any compact ambient obstruction soliton with constant scalar curvature is trivial. In doing so, we establish a number of results for solitons to the geometric flow by a general tensor $q$.

Focusing on dimension n=4, we show that any homogeneous gradient Bach soliton that is steady must be Bach flat; that the only homogeneous, non-Bach-flat, shrinking gradient solitons are product metrics on $\mathbb{R}^2×S^2$ and $\mathbb{R}^2×H^2$; and there is a homogeneous, non-Bach-flat, expanding gradient Bach soliton.
