Some money for those less fortunate.

The homeless are characters appearing in Fallout 2 in 2241.


These homeless people are desperate, aggressive and poor people living in the wasteland. They travel the wastes trying to get the necessities needed for life, mainly food and water. They will attack all strangers, like farmers and even raiders.[1]
