I've been drinking this irradiated shit and... I can't do it. I just throw it up now. I need purified water... please...

— Water beggar

Water Beggars is an unmarked and repeatable quest in Fallout 3.

Quick walkthroughEdit

Unmarked Quest: Water Beggars
While exploring the wastes find, and talk to, a water begging wastelander.
Refuse to give the beggar water.
Give the beggar some water.
+50 Karma

Detailed walkthroughEdit

A lot of wastelanders are suffering dehydration and need purified water, which when given to them rewards you with positive Karma (+50). Denying them water causes them to die at the next map change, even if they were given purified water before. However, telling them to find their own water, and then giving them water is fine, and they live on. They do not die if you do not explicitly tell them to find their own water, however, and their death inflicts no karmic penalty on the player character.

Non-player characters and locationsEdit

NotesEdit

  • Giving them Aqua Pura with the FEV will incur -50 Karma.
  • Strangely, they never actually drink the water you give them and it can be pickpocketed back.
  • Ben Canning, a wastelander who appears in a random encounter, can be given purified water or dirty water in exchange for good Karma as well. In his case, repeating the action is not possible which is why he is not considered part of this unmarked quest.
  • Even though the beggars are apparently too weak to get water for themselves, they have no problem getting up and running away from a potential conflict.

RewardsEdit

  • Karma +50
  • Karma -50 (With Modified FEV in Aqua Pura)
