Brotherhood scout report is a miscellaneous item in Fallout: New Vegas obtained during the quest Still in the Dark. There are 3 tapes, numbered #1, #2 and #3.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Each note has a number of different versions based on the player's actions up to the point in time when he or she speaks to the scout in question. The item itself does not have the text, but the scout reads it to the Courier before handing it to him or her with instructions to take it to the Elder.

Transcript[edit | edit source]

NCRCF[edit | edit source]

Version 1: player has taken no actions at the facility

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

The facility was run by the NCR for a time, but the prisoners overcame their guards and now use the prison as a base from which to conduct raids. What puzzles me is why these men have been allowed to run wild for so long unchecked. Why has the NCR not retaken this place?

Version 2: NCR has retaken the facility

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

The facility was run by the NCR for a time, but the prisoners overcame their guards and now use the prison as a base from which to conduct raids. Eventually, the NCR got around to putting the prisoners down, but not until they had wreaked havoc on nearby trade routes.

Version 3: NCR attacked the facility and all NCR troops were killed

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

The facility was run by the NCR for a time, but the prisoners overcame their guards and now use the prison as a base from which to conduct raids. Eventually, the NCR tried to put the prisoners down, but they were overwhelmed by them, and haven't sent troops to the area since.

Nipton[edit | edit source]

This only has one version, since no action the player can take will entice the NCR into action at Nipton.

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

My observations have mostly focused on the small town to the south of here. It was cruelly attacked, its inhabitants slain nearly to the last. That such an act could occur so far west is nearly unthinkable. The NCR has forces in all directions, and an outpost scant miles west from here. That they have not responded to this violence shows either an unwillingness or inability to properly defend their borders, which is telling.

Nelson[edit | edit source]

Version 1: No intervention by the player at this point

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I've been dividing my time between the camps to the north and south of here. One belongs to the NCR, the other to a band of slavers known as Caesar's Legion. I was sure the NCR would quickly win, but that has not happened. Instead, the two sides have reached a stalemate, and only occasionally send skirmishers against one another. If I didn't know better, I'd say neither side is confident enough to push for a full victory. Which seems strange given the NCR's technological edge.

Version 2: Nelson retaken

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I've been dividing my time between the camps to the north and south of here. One belongs to the NCR, the other to a band of slavers known as Caesar's Legion. I was sure the NCR would quickly win, but that has not happened. Instead, the two sides maintained a long stalemate, and only after an extended duration did the NCR finally destroy its opponent. When they did, it appeared they did so with the help of fresh reinforcements. I do not believe they could have managed the feat without them. That savages such as these could last so long against the NCR is troubling.

Version 3: Camp Forlorn Hope destroyed

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I've been dividing my time between the camps to the north and south of here. One belongs to the NCR, the other to a band of slavers known as Caesar's Legion. I was sure the NCR would quickly win, but that has not happened. Instead, the two sides maintained a long stalemate, and after an extended time the slavers rose up and slaughtered the NCR to the man. That barbarians with such crude weapons could crush a foe that defeated us is food for much thought.

Version 4: Both camps destroyed

TranscriptVaultBoy.png

I've been dividing my time between the camps to the north and south of here. One belongs to the NCR, the other to a band of slavers known as Caesar's Legion. I was sure the NCR would quickly win, but that has not happened. Instead, the two sides maintained a long stalemate, and after some time fighting broke out and both sides were mysteriously wiped out. Things were rather chaotic, so I wasn't able to see exactly what happened, or who did the deed, but seeing the NCR suffer such a loss was a shock.

Locations[edit | edit source]

One holotape is found in REPCONN headquarters, another is found in artillery zone of Nellis Air Force Base, and the last is in a crater is Black Mountain. For more details, see Still in the Dark.
