Boo hoo, the mean boss took all of the dumbass slave's goodies! Is 'im gonna cry to Ashur?!

Mex is a Pitt raider guarding the gate to The Pitt around 2277.


Cruel and despicable, even for a Pitt Raider, Mex has been removed from general guard duties by Ashur and sent to guard the gates to Pitt Downtown after bouts of Pitt slave punishment that left many with horrific injuries. Adept with a rifle, Mex is content with tagging escapees, laying down a variety of mines, and watching his prey explode in a variety of impressive arterial spray patterns.[1]

Daily scheduleEdit

Mex and three of his men keep their guns trained on the road into town all day, ready to blow away any pests or vermin trying to get in.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • If you tell him you're a returning escaped slave, he will take all the items in your inventory (except the "hidden weapon" you may have received from Wernher), give you a slave outfit which is automatically equipped (whether you're wearing one already or not), and then tell you to enter Downtown.
  • If you tell him you came looking for work, he'll sarcastically invite you to enter through the door to Downtown and fill out a "fucking application", whereupon you are ambushed by Reddup and his men and all your items are taken (except the "hidden weapon" you may have received from Wernher), and you are issued a slave outfit which is automatically equipped.
  • If you kill him on the way in, you will also be ambushed, with the same result as if you were trying to "apply for a job" (but with different dialogue from the ambushers).

Infiltrator -


  • Mex also has an Infiltrator, the silenced and scoped R91 assault rifle featured in The Pitt. He is not the only non-player character to wield this weapon, however, as his two guards as well as Gruber in The Hole also wield it.
  • When he strips you of your weapons, even if you have no items on you, he still says "Where'd you get all this shit? Whatever. It's mine now. I hit the jackpot today!"

Notable quotesEdit

  • "Boo hoo, the mean boss took all of the dumbass slave's goodies! Is 'im gonna cry to Ashur?!"
  • "HAHA! I love it. Another slave wandered back here, huh? You couldn't even get over the bridge, could you? You're lucky I don't fuckin' paste you. And look at all this! Where'd you get all this shit anyway? Whatever. Mine now. I hit the fuckin' jackpot today! Now get back in there and get to work, or next time I'll just stake you out there for the Trogs. (Posing as an escaped slave)"
  • "Is that so? Well, since we're hirin', you can just head right on in and fill out a fuckin' application. I'll let 'em know that you're comin'. They'll take good care of you once you get inside. (Joining the raiders)"


Mex appears only in The Pitt add-on for Fallout 3.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Mex is a reference to the chain of Mad Mex restaurants, which are relatively popular in Pittsburgh, and the surrounding area like in Monroeville and Squirrel Hill.
