Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • He will not sell his merchandise to the player if they have positive reputation with the Strip. Equally, he offers a discount if the player has infamous reputation.
  • If reputation with the Strip is liked or higher, sometimes just standing or passing near him will cause him to spontaneously warn the player to stay away from him. If the player stays there, the warning will be repeated again and again.
  • Killing him will cause the player to accumulate negative reputation with the NCR, though not with the Strip itself.

Other interactionsEdit

During interactions with Mister Holdout, the player can pass a Sneak check of 50 for XP.

NotesEdit

  • Mister Holdout was first seen in the hands on demo shown at the E3 2010 trying to sell weapons to the player on the Strip.
  • Holdout wore the same suit as the Mysterious Stranger in the beta, but in the final version, he wears a pre-War business suit.
  • If you attack Mister Holdout and chase him into the nearby gate leading to Freeside, he will run into the Securitrons guarding the entrance and be killed by them. As a result, his dismembered limbs will appear where he normally stood, which is inside the Strip.
  • If you have a Sneak skill of 50 or higher, you can convince him to sell bigger holdout guns.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "There's a guy on the main drag who sells second-hand adventuring gear. He's got an okay selection, but where does it come from?" – Rotface
  • "Heard the Dam finally got what's coming to it. Strange days ahead - and that's why it's best to face the day armed."
  • "You might - one fellow I knew was able to slip a pistol past the guards. You? I'm guessing you could get a machine gun by them."

AppearancesEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

Holdout is a term for concealing and hiding cards on one's body. Additionally, a holdout gun is another name used to refer to a pocket-pistol or derringer: handguns of very small size and caliber, making them easy to conceal, and meant to be used in emergencies or situations where conventional weapons are inaccessible.

BugsEdit
