Bill Ronte is an engineer turned drunkard living in Freeside in 2281.


Old Bill Ronte is a skilled machinist who installed and maintained a water pump in Freeside before becoming addicted to Dixon's whiskey.


There are three options for helping Bill get sober during the quest High Times, once Dixon is no longer supplying him with booze:


  • If Bill dies during the quest High Times the quest can still be completed for partial XP, but Tapper will continue to charge for water at Freeside's water pump afterwards. If both Bill and Jacob Hoff die during High Times, the Courier will gain infamy with the Followers when the quest is turned in. This can sometimes happen accidentally if caught in the crossfire by Freeside Thugs.
  • After helping Bill shake the addiction, the Courier can talk to Tapper and use the Freeside water pump for free.
  • When entering the Atomic Wrangler in the company of Arcade Gannon, Bill Ronte appears to slurr "Howdy Arcade" although this does not appear to lead to any new speech options.


Bill Ronte only appears in Fallout: New Vegas


  • When you go talk to him, his response will be: "..." [platforms tag needed]
