Heh, so the Garrets sent you to track me down? What a joke.

Caleb McCaffery is a bounty hunter living near New Vegas in 2281.


He can be met during the first visit to the Atomic Wrangler casino, standing close to one of the guards near the entrance of the gambling area. The dialog with him will imply he's working as the Garrets' debt collector. He'll become the final target of the side quest Debt Collector and relocate in the Strip. Caleb is incredibly arrogant and condescending, deriding the Courier as beneath his notice. A Speech check is required to deal with him in any way other than violently.

  • Debt Collector: Caleb is a target in the quest Debt Collector. The Courier is asked to kill him, since he fled to the Strip. He is standing just outside of Gomorrah. Alternatively, if your Speech skill is high enough, you can let him walk free by just taking his hat and a few bottle caps so that the Garrett twins think that he's dead.

Effects of the player's actionsEdit

  • If the player kills Caesar, Caleb will say "All hail the slayer of Caesar!"



  • The Courier can ask him for tips on bounty hunting, if talked to before the Debt Collector quest. He will give the advice "Be quiet, be quick, and don't get dead." If you ask him for advice again, he tells you he isn't a "career counselor".
  • After choosing the Speech option and letting him live, he will go back to the Wrangler and shoot up the place. He will be killed by the guards, and you can loot his body.
  • When attacking him, no one on the strip will turn hostile.
  • Sometimes he will equip a Cattleman cowboy hat instead of the normal hat that looks like the Old cowboy hat. It will replace the normal hat required in the quest Debt Collector.


Caleb McCaffery appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

This presents no issues as quest items carry no weight. [verified]
