Not yet idolized by the BoomersEdit
- As you are walking the New Vegas Strip, an NCR trooper will approach you and give you a message, which asks you to visit Ambassador Dennis Crocker at the NCR Embassy. The embassy is in the last section of the Strip (farthest from the North Gate). Crocker is in the building on the left once you enter the front gate. Once inside, go through the door on your left to the end of the hall to find Crocker.
- Crocker will ask you to get the Boomers to support the NCR. Follow the map to Nellis Air Force Base and talk to Pearl to learn how to win their support.
- Complete the Volare! quest chain, including raising the bomber.
- Return to Crocker and inform him that they have pledged their support. You will complete the quest and gain NCR fame.
|1||Ambassador Crocker has told me about the Boomer quest. I haven't accepted yet.|
|2||Convince the Boomers to help you in the upcoming battle.|
|3||Return to Ambassador Crocker and let him know of the results of meeting with the Boomers.|
|4||Quest finished||Return to Ambassador Crocker and let him know the Boomers will help you.|
|5||Quest failed||I've told Ambassador Crocker that the Boomers will not help.|
|6||Quest failed||Ambassador Crocker found out that I've already pledged the Boomer's support and is disappointed.|
- This quest disregards your reputation with NCR; even if you are Vilified with them, you still are allowed to enter the embassy and talk to Crocker.
- Already being Idolized by the Boomers allows the player to bypass this quest.
- Accepting this quest will remove any infamy you have with the NCR. If you have already met the Boomers, reporting that they will help you or that they won't help you will also clear your NCR infamy.
- xbox360 After telling Crocker you've gained the Boomers' support, an NCR MP will stop you in the hallway, say something about how you "should have paid your dues" and become hostile. He and any other NCR troops in the hallway will attack you, but killing them doesn't result in karma or reputation loss, and no other NCR troopers become hostile afterwards. [verified]
