Howdy partner, welcome to the headquarters of the Sunset Sarsaparilla company. Wrangle up a stool and listen to ol' Festus jaw awhile.

Festus

Sunset Sarsaparilla headquarters is a location in the Mojave Wasteland. It is the headquarters of the Sunset Sarsaparilla Company. It is located north-west of El Rey Motel and directly west of the NCR sharecropper farms.

BackgroundEdit

The old headquarters of the well-known and loved “Beverage of the West Coast, Sunset Sarsaparilla”, this structure features a many-faceted glass bottle of the company’s signature drink. Before the war, an urban legend circulated that if any one collected enough bottle caps marked with a star and took them to the Sunset Sarsaparilla headquarters they could receive a prize. Now, this legend has taken on a life of its own; crazed individuals stalk the wasteland searching for “SSSs” (Sunset Sarsaparilla Stars), a fact exacerbated by an automated robotic attendant, Festus, who prompts people with an option to present their Sunset Sarsaparilla Stars. Dare to find out the truth?[1]

LayoutEdit

Entering the factory, to the left is Festus; a cowboy robot who asks for Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle caps. Asking him "Star Info" reveals the contest and triggers the quest The Legend of the Star.

Another terminal activates a maintenance robot, Mr. Janitor, who collects bottle caps around the factory, and then disposes them in a garbage can by the maintenance office he is found in. He gathers a total of over 550 bottle caps.

There are three Sunset Sarsaparilla Security protectrons, one is initially on the ground floor, another is circling around the restroom section on the second floor, and one on the railings overseeing the bottling area.

On the ground floor, there is a Very Hard locked door. Access requires to go up one staircase and down another. Within that room is some scrap metal, miscellaneous toolbox items, and a terminal with some cryptic log messages regarding plant production line damage. There is also a miniature empty Sunset Sarsaparilla bottle on the shelf behind/inside of the barrel. Oddly, there is a second Very Hard locked door down here, but the door is clearly swung open and would have otherwise lead to a room of rubble. Opening it earns experience, but nothing else.

In the shipping room, there is an Average locked terminal. Activating the terminal reveals a discussion regarding an experimental delivery robot that was reportedly single-handedly running all the distribution in the Vegas area.

In the bottling room, there is a lone surviving bottling robot. When talking to it, it first talks as if the Courier would be its master. But after realizing this is not the case, it becomes hostile and attacks. If a companion discovers it first, it will instantly become hostile.

The furthest room in the back on the 2nd level factory floor has a safe, an Average locked terminal, and a hole in the floor leading to a door which remains locked until Festus is given 50 star bottle caps.

NotesEdit

  • With Robotics Expert, Festus can be deactivated. If The Legend of the Star is still active, completion is impossible, as Festus can no longer be interacted with.
  • Oddly, various Nuka-Cola products can be found throughout the factory.
  • According to one of the logs inside, the damage to the building is due to moisture as well as attackers.
  • Strangely enough, behind an unusable door with the words "Out of Order" on it, one can peek in and see an advertisement for Super-Duper Mart, though there isn't one in the Mojave Wasteland. An easier way to see it is by looking to the ceiling when you enter.
  • There is a random very hard locked door that is open. It appears to serve no purpose except for gathering a bit of experience.

AppearancesEdit

Sunset Sarsaparilla headquarters appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

On a computer terminal on the ground floor, there is an "Annual Sales Report" which references games in the Fallout series by what area they are set in: "Northeast continues to be a tough nut to crack" Fallout 3. "Things are shaping up in the North and Midwest" Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel. "As usual, performance in the Southwest is strong" Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas.
