You are, without a doubt, the healthiest son of a bitch I've ever seen wandering the Big MT. Ain't got no use for an old digital sawbones like me.

— Sink Auto-Doc

Sink Auto-Doc is an automated personality found in the Sink in 2281.


The Sink's Auto-Doc is a prototype Auto-Doc built by Dr. Mobius before he left the Think Tank and all of The Sink's systems were disabled. When its personality back-up is recovered from the Y-17 medical facility, the Auto-Doc speaks in a stereotypical 1940s military drawl. When inactive the unit may: snore loudly, apparently ramble on about patient injuries such as; 'shoe lung' while 'asleep', or make passing comments on the player's general health.

The Auto-Doc was responsible for removing the Courier's brain. Usually this procedure would result in a Lobotomite. However, due to the cranial injury from being shot in the head the Auto-Doc was forced to adjust the operation routine and was successfully able to perform the intended operation.

  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 Even with all the holotapes located & installed, the only options available while interacting with the Sink Auto-Doc are heal yourself & respec your traits. This bug is related only to the Spanish version of the game. The 3rd option in the menu it's left blank (error in the translation), so the game motor "thinks" that there are only two options.
    • It may be worked around by temporarily switching the game's language to any different language than Spanish.
  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 If the Sink Auto-Doc is used to remove the Skilled trait, the trait's bonus remains (the penalty does not) or if the player re-selects it, they gain an extra 5 more skill points on top of the original 5 point bonus (giving 10 points per skill).
