Notes[edit | edit source]

  • You cannot start this quest if you have already started Run Goodsprings Run. Ringo will decline your offer to help and claim he saw you being overly friendly to Cobb, after which the quest will be marked as failed. Even if you kill Joe Cobb, Ringo will still refuse your help.
  • If you approach Ringo wearing any gang faction armor (Great Khan or Powder Ganger) he will become hostile, try to kill you and you will fail the quest.
  • If you steal the single shotgun from a house in Goodsprings before you enter the gunfight, Trudy will not have her gun in the fight.
