The vagrant is an old man living in Freeside in 2281.


The vagrant is an old, and apparently homeless, man who lives in Freeside. This non-player character seems to be pretty much useless, like the destitute traveler. Other than that not much is known about him.

  • I Could Make You Care: When the Courier needs to ask around Freeside about a rangefinder, dialogue with him is possible. The Courier can pay him for the information, threaten him (Strength 7 needed) or if they have low Intelligence there is special dialogue line which makes him talk like an intellectual person (similar to Torr from Fallout 2).

Effects of player's actionsEdit

  • If the Courier tries to talk to him, he'll just laugh and cough.
  • If walked by or aimed at, he will grunt unintelligibly and burp.
  • He can be killed without gaining Freeside infamy or Karma loss.
