Between having to hire protection and getting slapped with taxes, it's more profitable to stick to Arizona and New Mexico. But, I do cross the river from time to time when an opportunity comes along.

Dale Barton is a wandering merchant found at Fortification Hill in 2281.

BackgroundEdit

Barton prefers to trade in Legion territories versus NCR territories, saying that he finds it cheaper and safer. This is due to Caesar not demanding (or needing) heavy taxes from traders in his territory and the Legion's effectiveness in keeping the trade routes secure from both raiders and creatures roaming the wastes. When asked about Legate Lanius, he mentions Lanius killing one of his brahmin just because it got in his way, though he goes on to say that he had enough sense to keep quiet and not seek reimbursement from Caesar.

Dale is the one who salvaged a howitzer from a military base in Yuma, Arizona and then sold it to Caesar's Legion.

He has a large selection of items and regularly updates his wares.

Effect of the player's actionsEdit

  • He will neither trade nor engage in dialogue with the Courier if they have a poor reputation with the Legion.

InventoryEdit

NotesEdit

  • If the Courier engages and is hostile with the Legion, Dale will remain neutral.
  • Once Dale reaches 41,000 in caps he will not dip below it while playing Caravan. This can be exploited to earn caps and get the Know When to Fold Them and Caravan Master achievements/trophies.
  • If the Courier is on bad terms with the Legion, Dale, instead of talking and just saying random quotes, will say quotes from typical wanderers, even saying, "There's been reports of Legion raiding parties.", or mentioning Motor-Runner was put down. He will not offer the option to trade.
  • If Caesar has been killed, he'll ironically say that it "should be good for trade".

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Between having to hire protection and getting slapped with taxes, it's more profitable to stick to Arizona and New Mexico. But, I do cross the river from time to time when an opportunity comes along."
  • "Hell, I don't even need to travel with guards most of the time in Legion territory. All the bandits are dead or run off."
  • "Here I was thinking you'd be a challenge, want a rematch?"

AppearancesEdit

Dale Barton appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
