Other interactionsEdit

Encounter locationsEdit

He can be encountered at these locations:


  • He will attack anyone he comes across, including the player character, similar to Sam Warrick and Arkansas from Fallout 3.
  • Absalom may say "Well that's never happened before" as he is dying.
  • Absalom's level scales up to the player character's (which is relatively rare in Fallout 4), and he has the same health and level scaling as most of the game's human companions, with a minimum level of 25 and a maximum level of 50. Thus, up until level 25 he will be tougher than a human companion, and after level 25 he will have exactly the same amount of health as they do up to level 50. This, combined with his full set of combat armor, makes him an especially tough opponent, particularly if he is encountered by the player character at a low level.
  • If he is damaged without killing him, he will remain at the same HP the next time he is encountered (but does not respawn).


Absalom appears only in Fallout 4.
