|For the Fallout 4 consumable item, see Gourd (Fallout 4).|
Gourd runs Brewer's beer bootlegging, which has the unfortunate problem of a cazador nest built right on top of it.
Interactions with the player character
|This character is involved in quests.|
- Strategic Nuclear Moose: Gourd is the distiller of his bootlegged beer, Strategic Nuclear Moose.
|Settler outfit or wasteland outfit, stormchaser hat|
|Sledgehammer or Combat knife or Knife or M&A 9mm pistol or Tire iron or Police baton or Baseball bat|
Drops on death
- It is possible to kill the cazadores before they kill Gourd by using a gun with a high rate of fire and moderate DAM along with the help of steady and V.A.T.S.. However, if you save him, Gourd does not engage in conversation with the player, simply saying "I'll mind my business if you mind yours."
- Gourd respawns, which is unusual for a named non-player character. Not that it matters, since the cazadors will respawn with him, meaning Gourd is doomed to die every time he comes back.
- When saved from death Gourd seems to fall apart when a certain distance (couple of feet away) is met. The animation is quite funny and consists of Gourd's limbs, torso, and head seemingly falling apart into a puddle. When you re-approach Gourd he will *pop* back upright into place and continue on his way until Gourd is once again out of range.
Gourd appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
