Suave gambler hat
Female version (left) and male version (right}
|The following is based on the Wild Wasteland trait and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
It does not provide any Damage Threshold, but provides a bonus of 1 to Perception and can be repaired with pre-War hats. The female version is a "pillbox" hat with a large black feather in front; the male version resembles the pre-War hat, but of a different style intended to resemble Indiana Jones' signature Fedora.
Found in the Indiana Jones Wild Wasteland encounter. The hat lies in a refrigerator (left to the road when walking from Goodsprings) that is located southwest of Goodsprings Cave. Follow the road from Goodsprings southeast towards Jean Sky Diving.
- The Courier can obtain this hat without permanently having the Wild Wasteland trait by selecting Wild Wasteland when you first build the Courier, then grabbing the hat, and then leaving the town boundary, where you can rebuild the Courier and take off the trait.
- Non-English versions of the game translate the hat's name poorly: Spielerhut 2 in German, Sombrero de jugador 2 in Spanish, Chapeau de joueur 2 in French, and Cappello giocatore d'azzardo 2 in Italian. Each translates roughly to "Gambler Hat 2".
Behind the scenesEdit
The hat and its related Wild Wasteland event are a reference to an infamous scene in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, in which the titular character survives a nuclear blast by locking himself inside of a lead refrigerator.
