| ||For other characters in the Fallout universe named Vance, see Vance.|
Vance and his wife Vikki were "master criminals" before the Great War. The Vikki and Vance Casino in Primm commemorates their "crime spree". The Courier can hear the story of Vikki and Vance by consulting Primm Slim in the casino.
According to Slim, Vance purchased a high-quality 9mm submachine gun immediately prior to his death. Slim invites the player character to view the weapon on display at the center of the casino, but the case is empty. Asking about the missing weapon will reveal that Slim has a corrupted memory block; the player character may pass a Science check of 50 to obtain an unmarked quest that leads to Vance's 9mm submachine gun.
Vance is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
Vikki and Vance are compared to real-life crime duo Bonnie and Clyde, with Primm Slim insisting that Vikki and Vance started first. Slim's account implies that Vikki and Vance were in fact small-time white collar criminals; for example, it is expressly stated that Vance's 9mm submachine gun was never fired before he died. Like Bonnie and Clyde, Vikki and Vance were killed by being repeatedly shot in their car, although in their case they just happened to be caught in a police shootout with some real bank robbers.
