Chinese radio beacon
Radio Chinese radio beacon
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
If you can't find the corpse, try making Dogmeat search for a weapon.
If the player uses the tcl console command, they can go underground where they will find a ham radio labeled "Chinese Radio Beacon" underneath the commando. The radio can be talked to like any non-player character. If interacted with, the player will hear "Hello?" or "Hey there" in English through the radio, to which the only reply available is "See you later. or Time for me to go." Upon choosing this, the player then hears "Bye" or "Later" in English as the dialog ends.
The message broadcast over the signal is "bai shi" (敗 失), which is pronounced more like "bye sir" by people for whom Chinese is a second language, or can also be perceived as "shi bai" (失 敗), both of which mean losing and failing.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- If the dead Chinese commando spawns at a location such as Super-Duper Mart with raiders present, the raiders will loot the commando's body of most or all weapons but leave the dirty Chinese jumpsuit behind. If the commando spawns at a raider location, search the raiders first if you want the commando's weapons, which are in much better repair than normal raider weapons.
Bugs[edit | edit source]
- If the player already has a given Chinese object in their inventory the Commando may spawn without that particular object in his inventory.
Sometimes the dead Chinese commando doesn't spawn. You can still noclip underground and find the ham radio, but there will be no corpse above it.
- player.placeleveledactoratme a0a4c. A workaround on the PC is to use the console command
- Sometimes the beacon will become available only at a far edge of the world-map, indicating the commando's body is somewhere far off-map.
