The Gunners are a hostile mercenary faction operating in the Commonwealth in 2287.

BackgroundEdit

Essentially the largest mercenary group in the Commonwealth, the Gunners are a military-themed, well-organized and equipped group of for-hire killers with their own customs and signage who control numerous large strongholds in and around the Boston area. They were responsible for the dissolution of the Commonwealth Minutemen under Ezra Hollis at the Quincy Massacre. In 2287, Quincy remains one of their key bases of operations.

Similar to the Capital Wasteland's Talon Company, Gunners resort to attacking strangers on sight, similar to raiders. They differ from raiders in their lack of drug dependency, use of superior equipment (they commonly come equipped with combat armor and rifles), extensive use of laser weaponry or other heavy duty military gear, such as Assaultrons, Sentry bots, Mister Gutsies, and their commanders are even known to make use of power armor. Their patterns of speech and terminal entries also imply that they are relatively disciplined and well-trained. They place great importance on loyalty and discourage insubordination. Raiders who join the Gunners may have difficulty adjusting to the strictness and formality of being a Gunner, as is the case with Tessa.

They also possess functional vertibirds, which they use to transport attack teams, usually composed of two to four Gunners, along with one or two attack dogs. However, they are a rare sighting and seem to only appear south of the Boston ruins and rarely to the north (e.g., settlement raids). Near the edges of the Glowing Sea, a vertibird showing up will either mean the BOS or a Gunners attack-team dropping in.

Many Gunners also get their blood types tattooed onto their foreheads by their medics. This is both a practical measure and a rite of passage. This can be seen on some, but not all, Gunners.

Notable membersEdit

VariantsEdit

GunnerEdit

The lowest of the gunners, the generic gunner is generally pretty weak when compared with their counterparts. Armed with low-mid level weapons like 10mm pistols and laser rifles, these enemies should not be automatically dismissed.

NotesEdit

  • Gunners, in some areas, will not openly fire on the Sole Survivor, though will appear hostile on the radar - instead they will warn them to back off, if the Survivor ignores them and approaches then they will become hostile and attack.
  • Gunners will occasionally attack settlements owned by the Sole Survivor.
  • Gunners are commonly found wearing army fatigues, dirty army fatigues, green shirt and combat boots, and military fatigues underneath combat armor.
  • The Gunners are much like the Capital Wasteland's Talon Company, being unscrupulous mercenaries who will take any job if the price is right.

AppearancesEdit

The Gunners appear only in Fallout 4.

Behind the scenesEdit

50 Vault-Tec C.E.O.The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
  • In combat, they will occasionally shout, "get some!" This is a nod to the helicopter gunner scene from the 1987 war drama, Full Metal Jacket.
  • Having tattoos of their respective blood type seems to be a nod to the Schutzstaffel from Nazi-Germany, who also had such tattoos on the underside of the left arm.
