They are very good Wind-Brahmin -- all caps.”— Nightkin
|Unmarked Quest: Wind-Brahmin Wrangler|
|Approach the cattle pen at Brooks Tumbleweed Ranch.|
|Talk to the nightkin present and:|
|Accept his offer to buy "wind brahmin".||Refuse his offer.|
|Kill the nightkin.|
|Reward: Stealth Boy|
When the player approaches the cattle pen at Brooks Tumbleweed Ranch a nightkin will uncloak itself attempting to sell "wind-brahmin" (tumbleweeds) to the Courier. His fee is all of the player's caps, if they are not purchased he will become hostile. Originally, choosing to buy one without asking how much resulted in him giving the Courier a Stealth Boy for free. With the game patch released in July 7–8, 2011, the nightkin no longer gives a Stealth Boy. After the patch, agreeing to buy a "wind-brahmin" without asking how much results in him taking all of the player's caps instead.
- Further interactions such as suggesting that the tumbleweeds are not in fact "doggies", result in the nightkin becoming hostile.
- The nightkin will retain the caps he takes in his inventory which become accessible upon his death, he also has a Stealth Boy on his person as is the norm for most nightkin.
- ps3 xbox360 pc The nightkin trying to sell you the "wind-brahmin" may not show up, but in a entirely different location (i.e. The Strip) and try to sell it to you. He can show up in any area of the game world later on, including DLC-only areas. When he appears to you outside of Brooks Tumbleweed Ranch , there is a good likelihood that he will be hostile to non-player character's around him and club them to death before initiating his odd dialogue with the Courier. if you load the game, it seems that he may not appear again, which means you will probably have to deal with him elsewhere.

- This may also happen on PC. In fact he may even skip the dialog and suddenly appear right in front of you yelling: "I'll kill you!". This may also happen inside of a building. (e.g. one of your safehouses.)
