Pronto before and after

Typical store items before and after giving Pronto the rifles

Pronto's shop will have a better inventory and he will also get around 400 caps instead of around 150 (see picture). His store is turned into a "typical good gun and ammunition store", of which there already are several in the game, with an additional 20% discount. Use this to determine if you feel this quest is worth doing, since there is no other reward.


  • If you have begun this quest and wish to complete it, do not become hostile with anyone in Paradise Falls. While the doctor will still offer services, Pronto does become hostile towards you, making it impossible to complete the quest.
  • Pronto does not care about the condition of the rifles, so it is advised to resist wasting caps on rifles or repairs. Because of this, however, a good way to get rifles is to shoot them out of the hands of those carrying them.
  • After you have given him the 20 Chinese assault rifles, you have to wait at least 24 hours before his inventory improves.
  • Pronto will not accept the Xuanlong assault rifle, so players using the weapon need not worry about accidentally giving it away.
  • This mission is quite a waste of time for anyone using the small guns skill, as his inventory will be that of a normal goods store. And discounts can obtained easily for other stores, such as rivet city through the Wasteland Survival Guide quest
