Doesn't matter to me what you do. As long as the Ghouls are out of there, it's fine by me.

Manny Vargas, Fallout: New Vegas

Come Fly With Me is a side quest in Fallout: New Vegas.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

With Davison's nightkin attack on the Bright Brotherhood, their feral brethren have since escaped their care. Now coming up the road from the REPCONN test site to Novac they are beginning to pose a threat to the safety of the town.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Talk with Manny Vargas or No-bark Noonan.
  2. Go to the REPCONN test site.
  3. Talk to Jason Bright.
  4. Clean the basement of the nightkins.
    1. Kill all of the nightkin in basement.
    2. Alternatively, speak to Davison, the nightkin leader, about the alleged source of Stealth Boys in the facility. Enter the room the nightkin haven't been able to enter and talk to Harland about the shipping manifest of Stealth Boys. Find his friend in the basement prison; Harland will leave the room and one can search it for clues of the Stealth Boys. Return to Davison with news of the shipment mistake.
  5. Return to Jason Bright.
  6. Talk to Chris Haversam about fixing up the rockets.
    1. (Optional) Sabotage the launch. Haversam can be convinced he is not a ghoul with a Speech of 50, and then goaded into sabotaging the rockets as revenge against Jason and his followers. A female Courier with the Black Widow perk can also convince him to sabotage the rockets, regardless of whether or not Haversam still thinks he is a ghoul. Giving Haversam three boxes of Sugar Bombs will allow him to sabotage the rockets.
  7. Get the supplies Jason Bright asked for.
    1. The thrust control module can be bought from Old Lady Gibson at her scrap yard north of Novac. With a Speech or Barter check of 50, its price can be halved. Alternatively, the box holding the module can be picked (Lockpick 50 required) or the key to the box can be pickpocketed from Old Lady Gibson.
    2. The rocket fuel can be found a little ways north of Clark Field, which is south of Novac. It is on the corpse of a Mr. RADical.
  8. Return to Haversam with the supplies.
  9. Go to the observation deck.
  10. Launch the rockets.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Attempting to move Antler or responding with mocking comments will cause Davison to immediately become hostile to the player.
  • You only gain 200 more experience points if you solve the quest with a non-violent solution (speaking with Davidson) and if you help Harland finding his friend. Helping Davison but killing Harland only grants 100 extra experience points.
  • Attempting to go up the stairs in the room where Harland is located will turn him hostile. You must not only agree to help, but must also have found his companion as well to avoid hostilities.
  • It is never mentioned where or what the "sacred place" is, nor any reference that it may have already been mentioned within the Fallout series, yet No-bark Noonan claims it is Earth's moon.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • The quest was implemented and designed primarily by Jesse Farrell and Akil Hooper.
  • The name of this quest is a reference to the popular song, "Come Fly with Me", which was performed by Frank Sinatra in 1957. This song was composed by Jimmy Van Heusen and the lyrics were provided by Sammy Cahn.
Icon cut content.pngThe following is based on Fallout New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.
  • At one point during development, Davison and his nightkin had multiple ghoul prisoners held in the REPCONN facility, at least one of whom could be located alive. A number of partially removed dialogue options still exist to go with this scenario, including a request that Davison release the ghoul prisoners because "they're no threat", and an option to give the ghoul prisoners three Stealth Boys so that they can make their escape unnoticed.
  • At one point during development, the rockets that crash were supposed to be findable in the Mojave. This was cut due to time constraints.[1]

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes after the rockets launch, the Launch Music will turn into to a crackling noise that is impossible to get rid of.
    • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If the crackling noise is heard, turn around and look on the wall opposite the window and launch button. There will be a loudspeaker. Activate it to turn off the music/noise. Then proceed into the building. If the noise is still heard, go down into the basement where you received the space suit. On the wall directly overhead of the door you enter into to get the space suit will be a Loudspeaker. Activate it. Then out in the hall is another loudspeaker. Jump and activate it as well. The noise will have stopped.
  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png After handing over the second item and telling Haversam to start, Jason Bright will start his speech but stop after one or two sentences. You will see all ghouls lined up but one, who is wandering around the hangar. If you go up to the launch pad and press the button, the cut scene music will start but the dome does not open. You get the experience points and Karma for the quest, however. If you go back down again, Haversam will still tell you the journey is about to begin, with no other options left to pick. The rockets will be gone but all ghouls are still down in the hangar.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png During Jason's speech it is sometimes possible to see a random wastelander walking around with the feral ghouls.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If you collect the isotope first, the room where Chris Haversam was may be empty after you collect the thrusters. This prevents completion of the quest.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png After leaving the second floor and picking to kill the nightkin, or convince them to leave, the door to the second floor will be locked, and will need a key to open.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png When at Clark Field to obtain the isotope-239 igniting agent, the scavenger who is in possession of the igniting agent is halfway underground with no way to get to them without using console commands. Even shooting the body or using dynamite won't get the body out of the ground. Using the third person perspective can help get access to the body.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png After returning with the second component, and subsequently giving it to Chris Haversam, it is possible that the two speech options to initiate or delay the rocket launch will appear, but no selection can be made. This locks the game up, and a previous save must be loaded.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If Harland was made hostile, but not killed, during the optional parts of the quest, he will be inside of the launch pad with the other ghouls, still hostile. If the player approaches the observation window he will attack, causing all of the ghouls (including Chris) to flee. Leaving the basement and returning later on will result in Chris nowhere to be found, and the ghouls still trying to escape.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png When at Clark Field trying to retrieve the isotope-239 igniting agent, the igniting agent is on a dead scavenger wearing a radiation suit. Even after you pick up the Igniting Agent, the script engine will not acknowledge it, even when it is in your inventory. When you go back to Chris Haversam, he will not acknowledge that you have it either. Going to the Dino-Dee Lite store and getting the rockets in the backroom does not seem to work either. Without these rockets, the quest is impossible to complete through normal means.
