You need guns, I got guns. You need armor? Got that too. So long as you got the caps for 'em.”— Pronto
Lock and Load is a shop in Paradise Falls, run by Pronto. The shop has a very limited supply of anything, and everything it does have is in very poor condition. Typically the store's owner, Pronto, only has around 150 to 400 caps on him at the very most. His repair skill is also very low. The only way to improve his inventory is to "invest" in Lock and Load by completing the Economics of Violence unmarked quest. This will not, however, improve Pronto's repair skill. After investing, the quality of the goods rises significantly.
Inside the Lock and Load, you will find one workbench to the inner-left corner. The counter is littered with weapons. Behind the counter is the locker that holds Lock and Load's inventory, which requires a key to open, as well as two owned ammunition boxes sitting on the floor. Another owned ammunition box is on the desk next to the counter. To the left of the main counter, you can see a cage containing a skeleton equipped with a party hat with a plate in front of it.
The door which can be opened takes you to the basement where Pronto sleeps.
- Bottlecap mine on the workbench
- Lock and Load supply key - In possession of Pronto, opens locker behind counter.
- The store does not actually close as such. The player can enter the shop at any time and just go downstairs to talk to Pronto and trade.
- When stealing from the store, one will not lose Karma but residents will be hostile against you (if caught).
- After you invest in the shop, it will likely sell more of the rarer weapons in the Capital Wasteland, such as sniper rifles and scoped .44 magnums.
Lock and Load appears only in Fallout 3.
