Hey you, turd-face. I don't like you. I think you should buy me a drink.

Hoss is a regular of Dusty's Cantina in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

Though it's hard to believe, this big, dumb-looking and over-muscled lunk is the son of President Tandi. He talks the talk, but despite his appearance, he is a wimp. One hit to the nose and he yields. Unfortunately, Dusty hasn't wised up yet.

Effects of player's actions[edit | edit source]

  • The added result is that Dusty will offer drinks for free at the bar, as a sign of gratitude.
