[edit] Quests

  • That Lucky Old Sun: Python may be utilized to repair the wiring and bring the auxiliary generator online. A Science skill of 45 or a Poseidon Employee ID badge (which can be found in a room next to a skeleton behind a locked door requiring 50 Lockpick to open) is required to activate it from its inactive state.

[edit] Inventory

Apparel Weapon Other item On death
- Flamer
- Flamer fuel
Scrap metal

[edit] Notes

  • Although Python can easily be killed for 5 exp and one kill towards the "Demise of The Machines!" challenge, wait until after he fixes the terminal in the lab. Killing him beforehand makes repairing the terminal impossible without the high enough Repair skill (35) and scrap metal.

[edit] Appearances

Python only appears in Fallout: New Vegas.

[edit] Behind the scenes

  • The name Python is a reference to the programming language Python.

[edit] Bugs

  • One of the problems with activating Python is, if your Science skill isn't high enough, (45 or higher), he'll simply hover over to the auxiliary generator, where he will either be surged and short-circuited by the sparking cables, or will simply deactivate. If this happens, you will not be able to interact with Python, despite his health bar reading green. After you complete That Lucky Old Sun, he can be found restored in his depot with the "There are no more things for Python to fix" dialogue. This takes place despite whether or not you destroy Python whilst he is deactivated.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Python can be destroyed each time you enter the room, making it an easy way to farm scrap metal or complete certain challenges. It won't show up on the compass nor can you target it with V.A.T.S. Turning Python to ash or goo will destroy it permanently.
