You see a filthy trapper with torn and bloodstained clothing. He appears to be favoring one leg slightly.
”— In-game description when rescuing Smiley
Smiley is the trapper to see about... well, anything that involves the geckos in 2241.
He claims that he was raised on gecko milk. He is also the main squeeze of Klamath citizen Ardin Buckner who puts the Chosen One on a quest to find Smiley in the first place.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
Effects of player's actionsEdit
After having rescued Smiley, he goes to the Buckner House in Klamath. Smiley can teach the Chosen One about Gecko Skinning as a reward for saving his life. Other than that, he knows gecko lore.
Though he is a companion that can be escorted from the caves, he does not actually count as one and the only way to give him any weaponry is to plant them on him.
Smiley appears only in Fallout 2.
Behind the scenesEdit
Smiley is referenced in Fallout: New Vegas by Sunny Smiles who is also a gecko hunter.
