Convince Rusty Hook Guards to Allow Passage was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios, but was cut. It is located in Bloomfield Airbase.

Overview[edit | edit source]

After getting through the parking structure, these guards will approach the player and initiate dialogue. If the player has not yet freed Jillian from the Reservation and completed the prisoner retrieval quests, the guards will basically say to get the hell out of here. If the player is a good Charisma Boy, then he should be able to get some information out of the guards pertaining to what the Rusty Hooks are and that they are always interested in some trading as long as the trader does not care where the loot came from. If this is acceptable to the player, they will let him pass and tell him to meet Bear in the main walkway between the workshop (Rocket Assembly Building) and the homestead (Operations and Communications building). They will also insist that the player keeps his weapon holstered.

Completing the quest[edit | edit source]

Combat Boy[edit | edit source]

If the player has completed the prisoner retrieval quests, and the player had not killed Jillian, then the guards will let the player pass with honors. If the quest has not been completed, then the guards will tell the player to piss off. Should the player refuse, or if his speech/persuade is not adequate, the player may choose to mow the guards down. Since gunfire is loud, more Rusty Hooks will pour into the area (~10 to 15) accompanied by four NCR guys with high powered weapons and combat armor. Good luck.

Diplomacy Boy[edit | edit source]

Can talk his way into seeing Bear whether or not he completed the prisoner retrieval quests.

Science Boy[edit | edit source]

Pretty much the same as Combat Boy, except if the player is good at science and mechanics and mentions it to the guards, they will let the player pass and instruct him to meet Bear first, the Sid.

Stealth Boy[edit | edit source]

Straight forward, here. If the player is capable of sneaking past the guards, he can meander pretty much anywhere. However, if the player fails his sneak and is seen by a Rusty Hook, then there will be hell to pay.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

  • Medium XP for talking way passed guards.
  • Medium XP for sneaking past the guards.
  • Medium XP for getting in because of mechanical and science skills.
  • Minor XP for getting passed guards via finishing the prisoner retrieval quests and Jillian is still alive.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The quest is struck through in the design document, indicating it was cut and the approach to Bloomfield changed.
