The Nuka-World raiders is a three-way alliance of raider gangs that was created by Colter with the goal of taking over Nuka-World and building a raider empire.
The group is somewhat shaky and prone to infighting, most of this is due to the fact that they spent over a year in Nuka-Town together without expanding their territory. They all share a common goal and that is what kept them together for so long, but due to Colters inability to lead the underbosses and Gage plotted to overthrow Colter and replace him with who ever killed him.
The hierarchy of the Pack is based on wolf packs, with the leader being referred to as the 'Alpha'. They follow rule of 'survival of the fittest'. Like with certain animals, think for example of peacocks, they use their colorful and outlandish looks to boast. It is common for its members to challenge the reigning Alpha to win the title, which ends with the winner remaining as the dominant of the Pack, this usually means that the Alpha is the most violent member, but not the most capable leader. As Pack law forbids killing other members, the losers are generally shamed and then exiled. The members are identifiable by their colorful outfits and bizarre face paints. Most members wear masks depicting an animal.
The Pack feeds the carnivorous animals they keep with human remains, evidence for this can be found in the Nuka-Town backstage.
In criminology terms, the Disciples most common factor is the act called 'thrill killing', meaning that they are bloodthirsty and sadistic by nature. The Disciples are more akin to regular wasteland raiders than the Operators and the Pack. Their base in Fizztop Mountain is filled with dismembered corpses and gore. Since Nisha became their leader, and naming them the Disciples, they follow the natural way of the world: Kill or be killed, survival of the fittest. The only rule they follow is "Don't get caught.", meaning the Disciples are pretty much free to do as they please, including killing members of the other raider gangs, as long as they don't get caught. Leaving behind evidence that trails back to the Disciples may lead to disciplinary measures taken from within, which usually means the offending Disciple is killed and disposed of.
The Gauntlet is built by the Disciples, as a way of keeping them calm while waiting for Colter to follow up with the plans of taking over Nuka-World.
Most of their members are women. They are not female exclusive however, since it is possible to find male Disciples in owned raider outposts, and a few can be seen in their base with Savoy being a notable male Disciple. All Disciples wear face-covering masks. The reason for this is unknown.
The Operators can be easily classified as an organized crime group or can also be referred to as a mafia, mob, or crime syndicate, with their main motivation being the acquisition of caps and making profit. They are seen as less bloodthirsty than The Disciples and The Pack, with more functional outfits compared to the outlandish garb of their counterparts and a more approachable, reasonable demeanor. Unfortunately for them, they became stuck like the other two Nuka-World raider gangs. They are unable to grow further due to the lack of action of Overboss Colter, who decided to not follow through with Porter Gage's original plan. However they are not to be underestimated.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
The Nuka-World raiders will be under the control of the Sole Survivor if they agree to become overboss and different sub parks can be given to them and outposts in the Commonwealth. After laying the foundation for an empire a civil war will occur in Nuka-World but will be quickly ended. Member of the Nuka-World raiders can be found on patrol in the Commonwealth and collecting slaves to bring back to Nuka-World and the underbosses can give the overboss missions to increase their power standing in the Commonwealth.
- The raiders appear to be each tied to their own faction, and killing one type of raider does not necessarily turn nearby raiders of other factions hostile.
- Certain Nuka World raiders can be executed in plain sight without turning others in the area hostile. The most notable example is the raider in front of Cappy's Cafe, who is in a conversation expressing his doubt about the Sole Survivor as the new overboss. Killing him in front of his conversational partner incurs no repercussions.
