Cadet Astro-Gutsy is a robot in Nuka-World.

Background[edit | edit source]

Main article: Mister Handy

A dedicated combat variant, developed by General Atomics International. It was commissioned by the United States Army shortly before the atomic apocalypse of 2077,[1] with the first units seeing service in the liberation of Anchorage in January.[2] The shell was rebuilt with lightweight armor plating, while the usual array of tools was upgraded with a plasma caster on a flexible mount. The key advantage of Mister Gutsies that separates it from other combat robots is its sheer maneuverability and spatial awareness.[3][4] The Mister Gutsy is also upgraded with dedicated military software, including the ability to refuse orders issued by commanders who are incompetent or under court martial,[5][6] remote link-up capability for updating orders in real time,[7] and a brand-new Sergeant Major v.1.0 simulated personality that channeled the stereotypical Marine drill instructor and doubled as a vessel for state propaganda.[8]

However, in its rush to present the Army with a working model, General Atomics cut corners and the resulting personality had issues stemming from vague definitions used in programming its neural network.[9] The most notable of these was the fact that in the absence of orders, units defaulted to a patrol mode and attacked all unauthorized personnel with extreme violence, as per combat protocol Charlie Zulu 4.[10] The military accepted these flaws, pressing them into service. They first bore MGZ-##### serials, before transitioning to the standard ABC-##### nomenclature.[11] To distinguish between different variants of the robot, ranks were used: The baseline version was named Mister, with subsequent variants designated Sergeant, Lieutenant, Major, and Colonel.[12] A specialized field medic model was derived from the basic Mister Gutsy, with all combat functionality disabled[13] and an encyclopedic knowledge of medical procedures, particularly surgery.[14]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Mister Gutsies are typically found roving around abandoned military outposts or convoys, still guarding the long dead soldiers, while other models guard Gunner outposts. They are very alert and will engage immediately after detecting a threat. At long range, they employ a plasma launcher, but once they close distance, they will switch to a flamethrower that depletes health over time.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Cadet Astro-Gutsy appears in Nuka-World.

"Sergeant RL-3" to be precise, the pride of General Atomics International. Comes complete with a simulated personality unit, so he's good protection and good company, too! And all yours for just 1000 caps."
    The Lone Wanderer: "Simulated personality? Sounds like trouble."
    Tinker Joe: "To tell the truth, it is a little trouble. But he can't help the way he got built. General Atomics programmed the Mister Gutsy to be a good soldier, but their definitions were a bit vague. So a lot of units had... issues. So we got a gung-ho, robotic soldier that's picky about the company he keeps. But he seems to like you, so it'll be fine."
