Way too many strangers coming into town these days. No offense.

Goodsprings settlers are people living in the town of Goodsprings in 2281.


The Goodsprings settlers are mainly farmers and ranchers, who specialize in working with brahmin and bighorners. They will greet the Courier with "Howdy.", "That doc' Mitchell sure knows his stuff, doesn't he?" and "Way too many strangers coming into town these days... no offense."

Other than the named Goodsprings inhabitants, there are a total of 4 Goodsprings settlers living in the town. Three are male and one is a female who lives with Trudy and Sunny Smiles. One lives in the house immediately west of Chet's shop, two live in the house in the middle of the town near Victor's shack and the schoolhouse, and the female settler can be rescued from geckos at the end of the tutorial quest Back in the Saddle, at which point she will live inside Sunny Smiles' house.
