Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

"Bean" Murphy is one of the "traitor" salvagers at Denver in 2253.


"Bean" is a weak man that takes the easiest path. He does a lot of posturing, and has a ruined arm because of NCR torture. He runs a still, which annoys Porter who he tells is just for Molotov cocktails, but he drinks a lot to numb the pain of his arm. Hardin has convinced him into leaving Denver because there's nothing left there.[1]

  • If the salvagers finally attempt an attack on the Box, Bombay Jack will kill Murphy in the scramble.[1]
  • J.J. Morehouse used to arrange for thugs, including Bean, Scoby, and Slow Joe, to disable track, then blame it on raiders and tribals. That way he could demand more materials and demand that Dodge pay them more at the same time.[2]
  • Design document notes on the quest Analyze Their Drug Stockpile mentions helping Bean to up the liquor content of his still, which has the knock on effect of being able to make better Molotov cocktails.[3]


Murphy was to appear only in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.
