No way! I love Bess. Nobody is going make jerky out of her.

Chosen One

Help Bess the Brahmin is an unmarked quest in Fallout 2.

Quick walkthroughEdit

Unmarked Quest: Help Bess the Brahmin
Have Doctor skill above 25%.
Cure Bess' leg.
Sell Bess to Grisham. (optional)
Reward: 300 meat jerky, -5 Karma, 200 XP
Release the brahmin from the slaughterhouse. (optional)

Detailed walkthroughEdit

Bess broke her leg. If the Chosen One has Doctor skill above 25% he can help fix it. After that, she'll follow him around Modoc. She will not enter the underground sections of the town, but will wait on the surface. She will stay in your party until you leave Modoc. The Chosen One can then sell her to Grisham in exchange for 100 meat jerky after 3 months and a loss of 5 Karma. If one changes their mind, the Chosen One can release her and the rest of the brahmin in the slaughterhouse pen for 10 Karma, but his reputation with Modoc will take a hit.


  • Bess will attack any enemies she sees, like a normal companion, providing (very marginal) help in protecting Grisham's brahmin and clearing Farrel's garden.
  • Bess will disappear forever if the Chosen One goes down into the Modoc caves (this includes the well and outhouse).
