This talk page is only for discussing improvements to the page "Sergeant RL-3."


RL-3, like all Mister Gutsy robots, will sometimes say "Kill 'em all and let God sort 'em out" and "Kill 'em all, God will understand". Since it's not unique to RL-3, and since there's already 5 quotes listed, it shouldn't be re-added to the article. Kris mailbox 03:09, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

Full Scaling Stats Edit

What are his stats if Broken Steel is installed for proper scaling? Does his health improve, and do all skills make it to 100? Mictlantecuhtli 02:42, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Strange Graphical ErrorEdit

Soon after acquiring RL-3 at a low level, I found a raider-occupied cave. After clearing it out and leaving, I soon realized that Dogmeat, with whom had also been traveling, had vanished. I reloaded a previous save, thinking that he may have died somehow, and saw that he was nowhere to be found. However, whenever I look in RL-3's direction, the screen becomes a mess of gray and green shapes, consistent with RL-3's colouration, with RL-3 himself floating in the midst of it. I reloaded again and the same thing happened. After waiting for twelve hours, Dogmeat came back but RL-3 is still experiencing the graphical error, and I will most likely have to reload an even earlier save-game. Has anyone else seen this before? I play on the PS3, GotY Version. RolandVH 05:56, December 4, 2010 (UTC) EDIT: restarting the console appears to have fixed the problem.

Change to companion infoEdit

At the top it says "and can be a companion in 2277" Shouldnt this be changed to "and is a possible companion in fallout 3"?

Aimless BotEdit

If tinker joe is killed before you get to him (as in my case), RL3 will just aimlessly wander the countryside killing whatever hostile he spots. Player will not be able to interact with him other than getting a short one liner. Mechacode 08:57, June 7, 2011 (UTC)

Being Pedantic.. Edit

At several points on this page Sergeant RL-3 is referred to as having a gender, and is a 'he'. However, robots surely don't have genders.. --StarfishCostume 17:33, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

He's programmed with a masculine personality, so he uses the masculine pronoun. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 09:22, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
Still doesn't reaaaally make him a male, alas, I will accept this reasoning. --StarfishCostume 17:33, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
It completely makes him masculine - he has a "gender" in the anthropological sense. However, you are right that he has no "sex" in the biological sense. Gender ¬≡ Sex. Plus plasma pistols and flamethrowers are clearly euphemisms. 21:58, August 16, 2011 (UTC)
[Sociology] That's correct. Sex is based on physical attributes. Gender is a social construct. Dude101 22:06, August 16, 2011 (UTC)

Turns out, you *can* get Sergeant RL-3 killed Edit

Went to clear out Fort Bannister (Talon Company Stronghold) after the BoS water caravan got jacked. Jensen got himself killed even after I freed him. I went into HQ and cleaned out the place one corridor at a time. Turns out, Sergeant RL-3 *can* die if enough firepower overwhelmed him. I got surrounded by Talon guys and even with 3 BoS knights around me and I'm fully decked out level 26 with some heavy firepower I still got worn down to half health.

The status still says "severely damaged", though I did get the companion "Sergeant RL-3 has been destroyed!" pop-up before. There's no option to repair, and I can only loot its corpse like anything else.

Wonder if there's a replacement, and why isn't this listed under Mister Gutsy variants?

Also, the Talon guys have a "Corporal Reaver", also a Mister Gutsy.

HELP Question about the Sarge leaving me! Edit

Will I lose Sergeant RL-3 if my karma changes AFTER I buy him? So lets say I steal a bunch of stuff or save a fluffy kitten from a wood chipper, would moving into positive or negative from neutral cause him to disparty? ~a nooblet 21:51, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

No, but when you fire him, you won't be able to recruit him until your Karma is back to Neutral. Energy X Signature0 21:55, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the info and especially the super quick reply! ~the same nooblet 22:02, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Quick Question Edit

Why does it say on the page he only appears in Fallout 3, when above his picture that e appears in both 3 AND New Vegas50.124.8.104 17:28, April 10, 2013 (UTC)

I found why. While it is not in the game, it, along with many other characters and items from 3, are in Fallout: New Vegas's files, just unused. Somebody found this and decided to add that it's in New Vegas, which is incorrect. Paladin117>>iff bored; 17:32, April 10, 2013 (UTC)

Cant re-hire after The American Dream (xbox) Edit

I had RL-3 with me and loaded up with gear during the "Findig the Garden of Eden" quest. He disapeared when the enclave captured me. I figured he would spawn outside near fawkes when I left the compound but to my surprise he did not. I read this article and discovered that I could find him at Canterbury Commons if he ever gets dismissed, so I traveled there and I did indeed find him but I cant talk to him. He just says "Another glorious day in this mans army" every time I try to talk to him. Also his name just says "Mister Gutsy" now (even though his paint job and voice is still the unique RL-3 variant, and if I kill him he doesnt have any of the gear I left him with. I read in the bugs section that if this happens I can just reload the most recent save and I will be able to talk to him again but this does not appear to be true, nothing changes. I even tried closing the game and clearing my xbox cache and reloading, but still nothing. I dont have any saves from before I lost him so I basically just permanently lost my follower and all of the gear he was carrying. Tjwoosta (talk) 23:48, November 28, 2013 (UTC)

Nevermind, Im dumb, The Mister Gutsy I was talking to was one that apparently respawned from the AntAgonist vs Mechanist battle. I eventually found the real RL-3 over by the tree where the merchants stop. I never realized before that the Mechanist's Gutsy has the same paint and voice as RL-3.
