I'm all for risking my life, but I'm a little sensitive about my asshole.

Little Buster is an ex-merc turned bounty hunter living at Camp McCarran in 2281.


Little Buster claims to be "one of the greatest" bounty hunters there is by collecting bounties of the Fiends Night Terror and Jackson, despite only being in the profession for a little "over a month." He likes doing various jobs yet gets bored of them quickly, especially if the jobs require getting up early in the morning. In a way, he is just trying to find his place in the wasteland.

  • While Little Buster is training on the mannequin at Camp McCarran, standing behind the mannequin will result in Little Buster hitting the player character in the head, which may eventually cripple their head.
  • Little Buster carries a unique bladed gauntlet called the Cram Opener.
  • Killing Little Buster will have no effect on Karma, but may still cause witnesses inside Camp McCarran to become hostile.
  • After the completion of Three-Card Bounty, he will be found dead inside Freeside on the train tracks of the town's north gate, next to the Old Mormon Fort. His body will spawn twenty-four to forty-eight hours after the completion of the quest.
    • Upon approaching his corpse, a few Freeside thugs will appear nearby and attack the Courier.
    • Little Buster's corpse is actually a separate non-player character. Because of this, it is possible to obtain two copies of his unique weapon by pickpocketing him while he is alive, then looting the duplicate from his corpse.


Little Buster appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
