Suffice to say I'm a certified genius, and when I'm discharged from this pit of testosterone and failure, I'll have all the money I could ever need.

Private Poindexter is an NCR soldier and part of the Misfits living in Camp Golf in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281.

BackgroundEdit

Poindexter is a self-serving know-it-all type. He figures the best way to survive his time as a conscript in the NCR army is to play dumb and hide out in the rear at Camp Golf and earn a salary while serving. He is also very condescending to anyone he views as less intelligent than him, which is pretty much everyone.

QuestsEdit

  • Flags of Our Foul-Ups: Poindexter will tell the player that altering the records in the Camp's computer system would make it seem that they're doing better than they actually are.
    • If the player is taking O'Hanrahan's advice and convincing the squad to work together, the player will need to convince Poindexter to work better with the squad with a Speech check of 40.
  • No, Not Much: You are required to help the Misfits in order for Camp Golf to send help to Bitter Springs.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • Following Poindexter's advice and cheating the system will ultimately lead to the Misfits' laziness catching up with them when the Legion attack Camp Golf. Those who survived and fled to the Mojave Outpost will be court-martialed and hanged from the ranger monument.

Behind the scenesEdit

Poindexter Caravan Dialogue

Poindexter's unused Caravan challenge dialogue

Icon cut contentThe following is based on Fallout: New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Poindexter was intended to be a Caravan player at one point during development. The dialogue option for this, along with the associated voice clip, remains in the game, but Poindexter himself is not a member of the faction necessary to use the dialogue. Additionally, Poindexter does not carry any money, does not have a Caravan deck specific to him, and his remaining dialogue option does not include the script necessary to initiate a game of Caravan.
