Notable quotes

  • "Basic rule of thumb on these operations; keep your head down and let the robot do most of the heavy lifting."


Tristan appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel.


  • When you first encounter him in the Rockland Car Tunnel, he will sometimes be unarmed and in the "fist-fight" stance; however, pickpocketing will reveal that he is carrying a plasma rifle and simply has no ammunition. He will find some ammunition by himself after Liberty Prime kills the first Enclave soldiers, but you can also reverse-pickpocket him some microfusion cells while in the tunnel which will make him fully operational after loading the next screen.
