Ready to die for your country, you commie son of a bitch?

Deputy Steel is a Mister Gutsy military combat drone that guards Megaton's armory in 2277.

BackgroundEdit

This RobCo Industries Mister Gutsy has been programmed to serve as an assistant to Sheriff Simms.

RelationshipsEdit

Deputy Steel is owned by Megaton as a whole but entrusted to Lucas Simms and apparently maintained by both Lucas and Harden Simms.

Other interactionsEdit

  • If the Lone Wanderer has a Science skill of 75 or more, they can deactivate both Deputy Steel and Deputy Weld using the computer terminal in the armory to avoid wasting ammunition or getting hurt. If a Stealth Boy is used before entering, the Lone Wanderer might sneak over to the terminal undetected to deactivate Deputy Steel then loot the place without any conflict.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • If Deputy Weld, Megaton's protectron guard, is destroyed after Broken Steel is installed, Deputy Steel will assume Deputy Weld's post. In the Game of the Year edition this is not the case: if Deputy Weld is destroyed, Deputy Steel will remain in the armory. However, Deputy Steel will still show up if the Lone Wanderer attacks Deputy Weld, as will Lucas Simms.
  • If the Lone Wanderer enters the armory in Megaton, then he will become hostile.

InventoryEdit

NotesEdit

  • Lucas Simms mentions Deputy Steel to Harden Simms (his son), saying something along the lines of "I noticed Deputy Steel was extra shiny today, you polished him up, didn't ya boy?"
  • If you enter then exit the armory, he will follow you outside causing the town to turn hostile towards you.
  • Simms is a fan of the Wild West (his dad used to read him stories when he was a kid). He took on the title of sheriff and named the robot his deputy mostly to live out his childhood fantasies.[1]

Notable quotesEdit

AppearancesEdit

Deputy Steel appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenesEdit

Sometimes, when you attack him he says "What is your major malfunction, maggot?", which is a reference to the 1987 movie Full Metal Jacket. Gunnery Sergeant Hartman says this right before he is shot by Pvt. Lawrence ("Pyle").

BugsEdit

pcIcon pc Sometimes, upon fast traveling to Megaton, he will spawn right in front of you instead of inside the armory.[verified]
