The Mister Handy is a variant of robot found in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from Mister Handy. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The Mister Handy series of robots, named so because of the robot's large number of hands,[1] was first brought to market in 2037 as a general construction and maintenance unit by General Atomics International, with some assistance from RobCo. Primarily used in the United States and Mexico (where it was the leader in sales after the Mexico City earthquake of 2042), the Mister Handy was a reliable robot. An early bug that caused interference in the operation of the multiple arms was fixed with a hardware update in 2039, with no major problems since then. A key selling feature is the nuclear power unit (a model 238B, licensed from Calpower) and self-maintenance modes. Multiple Mister Handies are capable of keeping themselves in working condition (Self Diagnostics) and are also fully programmed to perform nuclear fuel replacements. Secondary programming handles radiation cleansing after refueling.

CharacteristicsEdit

SpecificationsEdit

Mister Handy robots are service and maintenance robots, with a powerful propulsion system enabling them to hover a few feet above ground. They have three primary appendages for manual labor, one which is fitted with a buzz saw and one fitted with a rudimentary flame thrower. They have three optical sensors fitted on top of their spherical chassis.

Gameplay attributesEdit

Although not designed for combat, mister handy robots are rather robust robots by design, due to their intended use in maintenance, and can pose a threat to lower level player characters. They are armed with a powerful melee weapon in form of a potent buzz saw, and wield a flame thrower which can prove deadly in close quarters.

VariantsEdit

Mister HandyEdit

Mister Handy

Working Mister Handy robots are not as common in Fallout: New Vegas as in Fallout 3. Only a few nonviolent Mister Handies appear in the game; two are unnamed: one in the Securitron vault and one in the X-8 research center. PYTHON, a deactivated maintenance robot, is in the HELIOS One building. There are also two broken, unique versions of the Mister Handy. The first, called Rhonda, can be repaired in the storage building of Black Mountain as part of a quest. The second, Mr. Janitor, is located in the Sunset Sarsaparilla headquarters.

Crazed Mister HandyEdit

Mister Handy

The crazed Mister Handy is a variant of the Mister Handy found in numerous places such as Hell's Motel, H&H Tools Factory, New Vegas Steel, and the Saturnite alloy research facility. It will attack the player character as soon as they make contact. This is due to the fact that their combat inhibitor has either been ripped out or has degraded for an unknown reason.

In Hell's Motel, there is a crazed Mister Handy that was used as an assistant by the now deceased Doctor Rotson. In New Vegas Steel, the crazed Mister Handies were participants in the factory automation test, which has been running for 204 years. As a result, the steel mills still continue to function. This type of Mister Handy is the hardest one to sneak up on and deactivate, and once detected, they will keep looking for the player character even though their status is [HIDDEN].

Maintenance robotEdit

Maintenance robot

Maintenance robots are light green-painted, smaller versions of Mister Handy found in REPCONN headquarters. Attacking one and failing to destroy it within 3 seconds will trigger an alarm, summoning sentry bots. The maintenance robots may engage in conversation between themselves, or the Mobile facial scanners. This only occurs when hidden, or access is authorized to all floors.

Mobile facial recognition scannerEdit

Mister Handy

A smaller variant of the Mister Handy, the mobile facial recognition scanners patrol the hallways of REPCONN headquarters to keep any and all unauthorized personnel out of restricted areas. Upon finding an unauthorized person or group, they will address the person, or the leader of the group, and request that they verify their access or leave the premises. Failure to verify will result in an admonition to leave within 30 seconds, after which an alarm will sound and sentry bots are summoned. The mobile facial recognition scanners can be killed or deactivated to prevent the alarm as long as the kill is not witnessed by another maintenance robot, or mobile facial recognition scanner, and they haven't already told the Courier to leave the floor.

Bottling robotEdit

Mister Handy

In one of the two factory floors in the Sunset Sarsaparilla Headquarters, there's one bottling robot who appears to be friendly at first. However, if it suspects the Courier is not a Sunset Sarsaparilla Company employee, it may turn hostile. On the floor, several broken bottling robots can be looted for some flamer fuel. For security reasons, the bottling robot will turn hostile towards the player character if they are detected attempting to sneak past it.

Broken custodial robotEdit

Mister Handy

Broken custodial robots can be found in the Sunset Sarsaparilla Headquarters by heading up the stairs on the factory floor. There are two broken custodial robots in the factory, found near the two shipping workers, and bottling robot, and they are the only Mister Handy robots that can be looted for some bottle caps as well as flamer fuel and scrap metal.

Broken personal assistantEdit

Broken personal assistant

One unique named Mister Handy, a "broken personal assistant," can be found on the same floor as the two broken bottling robots, at the end of the hallway in a room. Like the name suggests, it probably once belonged to an executive at the Sunset Sarsaparilla Headquarters. This seems even more likely considering his inventory consists of a pencil, clipboard, shot glass, and various other service-related items.
