The One You Can't Kill Edit

I think we can all agree Vendortron is the ONE you can't kill, you can kill yes man a bunch of timms he just comes back to life, but vendortron.... can't touch vendortron!!! >:*( LK Tien 05:57, November 10, 2010 (UTC)

Bug or Feature? Edit

After wiping out the Gun Runners for various reasons which have -nothing- to do with their Star Cap/s, I went away, and came back to buy some shiny new death-toys.

When I spoke to Vendy, all I got was some message saying something along the lines of:

"Due to an unexpected circumstance, we are currently unable to sell anything"

which made me panic, thinking it was due to killing the gunsmiths (logically). But, I waited 24 hours, and spoke to him again, and he was happy to sell me stuff.



I don't know what the cause is, but it isn't anything to do with wiping out the Gun Runners. I got the same message today after completing the Three-Card Bounty quest (and no, I'm not suggesting that's the cause either).

Tested this today, he says it if there are any hostiles in the area.

"The store is currently unavailable due to unexpected circumstances" may also pop up when physically attacking him, which is nearly impossible without the use of console commands due to the shelter of his. --Frozen Jese (talk) 12:01, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Inventory? Edit

Anyone know where his inventory physical location is? I'm sure it's somewhere you have to tcl to, but I'd like to 'add' items that he can then sell me. I hate the save-reload trick but I want some of the specific weapons mods he sells and I don't want to just player.additem them to myself. I'd rather additem to his inventory and then buy it from him. —Preceding comment was unsigned. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Try using showinventory... You might have to use Pg down or Pg up though... --Frozen Jese (talk) 12:02, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

The stuff a vendor(tron) sells, is never in their personal inventory (which is what commands like showinventory and openteammatecontainer work with. Rather, they usually have some container - located....somewhere. In Fallout 3, it was usually a locker, or other container nearby, that required a key to open. In New Vegas, and newer games (i.e. that other game with dragons and arrows in knees), they started hiding that container - usually below the ground/floor in the cell that the vendor occupies. Vendortron is no exception, and clipping through the floor (with tcl) will allow you to see two footlockers, with red text, that simply gives you the option to Open. In this case however, activating them does nothing - however, you can do Showinventory on them. Sadly, I haven't found a way to actually access what's inside.

Problem? Edit

Is there a way to fix the "I bought all his ammo then exited, repaired everything and then sold the weapons to him but he give me no money and his inventory never resets" bug? I have this problem on PC and I wasn't sure which console commands to use. (The above was posted under the wrong topic)

And I'd try to target him (use prid REFID to target him if you can't mouse to him) and the 'kill resurrect disable enable' trick. Dunno what to tell you if that doesn't work. And hit the 'Add New Topic' button at the top of the page, not the nearest 'edit.'

I'd like to ask if you can fix this on the 360? i spent a lot and i got some stuff to sell 2 get my caps back--Tbone11 00:23, January 15, 2011 (UTC)

Confused Edit

in the notes section it says you can't kill him even if you use the consle but later it says you can kill him with the golden gloves.

ive made him mad before using the balistic fist because it kind of clips through the glass ThatWhiteboy98 21:32, August 9, 2011 (UTC)

you CAN kill him Edit

I went inside the Gun Runners building after killing guards and he followed me, the thing is - he was just like a normal Protectron, I killed him without any trouble


This is utter bull****, you cannot kill him. He is forever stuck in that box without a way out, the only way inside is by using console commands. Sorry but you're a liar.

^This is likely a very late reply, but Vendortron can be easily killed with Boxing Tape or Golden Gloves if the player positions themselves just right. As for Vendortron following anyone-- never heard of that, but then again I've come across some pretty weird bugs/glitches while playing (haven't we all?) ~~HBS

GetGhost >> 0.00
IsEssential >> 1.00

So, yes - you can hit him, and you can do damage to him, but you can't kill him. The most you'd be able to do is simply knock him unconscious. Digital Utopia (talk) 04:40, July 10, 2014 (UTC)

Extremely bugged afted Honest Hearts ? Edit

Whenever i try to purchase any Case Box from him or Cases for .45 auto from him the game seems to crash. Note : this did not happen before Honest Hears playthrough with case boxes. Ofcourse the .45 cases were not for sale yet.

Other items seem to need careful purchasing also now, seems like buying more than 3-5 different item types at once from Vendotron makes the game crash, too.

BigRhino 18:11, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

Actually this happened to me alot, and i never had any dlc. I would always buy all the powder,Cases, Weapon repair kit ingrediants at once; this would usually cause it to crash instantly or withing a few seconds of exiting the conversation.

I've just started experiencing this as well, 68 hours in. Consistent crashing whenever I try to buy case, primer or powder boxes. It's always crashes when I press X to confirm the transaction. I'm 100% positive that what causes it is the cases/primers/powder being removed from their "container" and placed into your inventory. It's like the game gets confused at the stage where it's supposed to convert the box into it's actual contents upon entering your inventory.

On a somewhat related note, I can't believe that the game is still plagued with these kinds of bugs well over a year after it's release. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, considering the state it was in at it's launch. I hope everyone responsible gets theirs. And not in the "slap on the wrist by their employer" kind of way, I'm talking serious bodily harm. That's no less than I'd inflict on someone who stole £40 from me the conventional way, directly out of my wallet. I'd probably have more respect for them if they had done that mind you, at least it would indicate the presence of some backbone.-- 22:13, March 1, 2012 (UTC)

Caps bug Edit

Today I bartered about 16000 caps worth of inventory with the vendortron, and its 'wallet' went up over 32000. Now I can buy from it, and caps get subtracted from me, but when I sell, no caps are exchanged.

Poor coding....the program register used to store his cap amount for calculations, is only 16 bit, meaning if it goes over 32k the register zeroes and therefore you get zero caps when you sell, because when you sell it just looks at the zeroed register. When you buy, your amount goes down as usual(even over 32K, because your caps total has 2 registers), HIS amount goes up because it starts a second register for values over 32K and that is the figure used in the his menu. Selling doesnt look at this one, just the first register. 23:12, September 18, 2012 (UTC)

Tiers 1 and 2 Edit

I noticed "Tier 1 (player level 1)" and "Tier 2 (player level 1)". We should merge the two because they are both unlocked at level 1, so what's the point of having both? 20:37, December 3, 2011 (UTC)

Because one is the group of Tier 1 weapons while the other is a group of Tier 2 weapons. UserGreatMaraMessage 20:51, December 3, 2011 (UTC)

Incorrect Tiers?Edit

The page lists the Anti-materiel rifle and 12.7mm submachine gun as tier 5 weapons, available only once level 16+. The problem is, I'm level 12 and am seeing both of those weapons. Foxi Hooves (talk) 01:44, April 1, 2014 (UTC)

If you have the gun runners arsenal DLC (All DLC's are in the ultimate edition), a Gun runners arsenal version of these weapons will appear even at tier one. Check if the Phrase "(GRA)" is after the weapon name. They have the same damage as the normal ones. This info should be in the page really..I might add it when I can be 03:20, June 29, 2014 (UTC)
