I'm glad that's over. Thank you.

Private Gilbert is a NCR trooper stationed in Boulder City in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

Private Gilbert is a NCR private stationed at Boulder City under Lt. Monroe's command. She and fellow trooper Private Ackerman were on patrol with their squad and heading back from Novac when they came under fire from a group of Great Khans. The squad radioed for assistance, but decided to chase after the Great Khans to Boulder City's ruins. There the squad got caught in crossfire and ultimately Gilbert and Ackerman ended up getting taken hostage by the group of Great Khans while the rest of the squad escaped without harm.[1] Throughout the hostage crisis, she has been nothing but ill-tempered and annoyed during her time as a hostage.[2]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Originally, if Gilbert and Ackerman were rescued they would wait at the entrance to the Boulder City Ruins, unarmed, for the rest of the game. This was changed in a recent patch, causing them to simply disappear from the game world after a period of time once the player completes the Boulder City Showdown quest.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png If Private Gilbert is killed during the quest and her limbs were blown off, you can find her back where she was alive, but she will not have the limb that was shot off. There are no karma penalties or actions against the NCR if you kill her while she's in this state.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Gilbert appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "What's going on with the Great Khans?"
    Monroe: "One of my patrols was on its way back from Novac when it came under fire from the Great Khans. They radioed for reinforcements, but instead of waiting for us, they chased the Khans into the ruins where they were caught in a crossfire. No deaths, but not all of the squad got out. The Khans have Private Ackerman and Private Gilbert as hostages."
    (Monroe's dialogue)
  2. Rescue message box: "Despite her situation, Private Gilbert remains sullen and defiant. She's tied up to Private Ackerman - freeing one will free them both."
