Hold up, there are deathclaws all over the damn place north of here. I'd turn back if I were you.

Chomps Lewis is the foreman of Quarry Junction living in the mining town of Sloan in 2281.


He is a quarry worker foreman found at the road next to the Sloan mining camp. He has been to New Vegas once and he does not like it. He mentions having problems with Tyrone due to the fact that Tyrone owes him money, even going so far to threaten him in a note. His daughter Melissa Lewis is a member of the Great Khans and although he disapproves, he says that if it makes her happy, then he is happy.

  • Due to his somewhat unprotected position and being surrounded by high-level enemies (including deathclaws), there is a high probability that he will be killed eventually.
  • As soon as you are about to enter Sloan from the south, Chomps will force a conversation warning you about the deathclaws in the quarry and how to get to New Vegas safer.
  • Chomps will greet you differently if you enter Sloan from the north.
  • You can fix the generator next to the barracks and Chomps will give you 2 $100 NCR money as well as some NCR fame.
  • If you help Snuffles and report back to Chomps he will tell you that she helps keep peoples spirits up and hands you 2 $100 NCR money as well as some NCR fame.
  • He may not be present at night.

Notable quotesEdit


Chomps Lewis appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  • ps3Icon ps3 Sometimes the player may find that Chomps has vanished from Sloan, despite the time of day or if the player fast travels to the town. If this is not due to a death (either by the player or a deathclaw), the player can find him again by doing the following... Standing in front of the mining office front door, turn so that your compass is between northwest and north. Walk forward (you are going past the pile of tires and to the left side of the Machine shop.) Chomps should be right in front of you/just behind the machine shop walking against a cliff wall. Due to the geography of this area, Chomps blends into the background and his radar icon seems to place him as the worker inside the machine shop meaning many players mistake his icon for the other non-player character.

  • ps3Icon ps3 Chomps Lewis may leave Sloan and head to Hidden Valley if bark scorpions appear in Sloan. He will remain there in the same spot, even after the player or himself kills the bark scorpions. [verified]
