We're guns for a hire; the best merc group in the Capital Wasteland. If you need something done in there, you seek us out.”— Reilly describing Reilly's Rangers
Reilly's Rangers is a mercenary group in the Capital Wasteland based at the Ranger Compound near Seward Square. There are currently four members of Reilly's Rangers. Reilly herself gives out quests involving mapping the wastes and helping other rangers in need.
While a mercenary force, Reilly's Rangers are somewhat altruistic, and operate according to a strict set of morals, like the Desert Rangers and the New California Republic Rangers. They have nothing but contempt for Talon Company, a mercenary group with no such convictions.
Luck seems to be a major theme with regards to Reilly's Rangers. The group's emblem prominently features a four-leaf clover, and luck is often mentioned in the various conversations you can have with the group's members (i.e. Butcher, Donovan, and Brick all credit their survival against the super mutant army at the Statesman Hotel mostly due to luck). Their unique armor, Ranger battle armor, grants a +1 stat boost to Luck.
- The members of Reilly's Rangers are about on par with Brotherhood of Steel Paladins in terms of armor, skill, and health.
- After finishing the related quest, Donovan may be encountered while adventuring through the wasteland as part of a random encounter. When asked what he is doing there, he'll reply that Reilly tracked the player and sent him to bring ammunition, or more specifically one mini nuke. During this encounter he will likely be found fighting off three super mutants. Without intervention they will likely kill him. If he dies his body can be looted (without any negative Karma) to get the mini nuke, plus his equipment (he has the only Ranger battle armor helmet), weapon, and ammunition.
- Unless the player character has a very high Sneak skill, attempting pickpocketing one of
Reilly's Rangers is almost always not worth the risk. If the player fails, the Rangers will turn hostile and stay that way (unless it is during the Reilly's Rangers quest), and the player will not be able to do Geomapping with Reilly, which is one of Fallout 3's most profitable unmarked quests.

- pc ps3 xbox360 A few players have reported killing Donovan in a random event and looting his corpse, but when the player returned to the Reilly's Rangers compound they were hostile. If enemies kill Donovan, you do not even have to be near him or loot him, the Rangers will become hostile even though you did not kill him yourself.
- pc ps3 xbox360 When you first join up with Reilly's Rangers on the roof they may become hostile for no reason, just reload the last Auto-save to the roof again until it doesn't happen. See above note about the generators as well.
