I Fought the Law is a side quest in Fallout: New Vegas.
Eddie has a little work that needs done outside of the NCR Correctional Facility.
- Talk to Eddie and ask if he has any work.
- Kill Chavez at the Powder Ganger camp south or convince him to leave with a Speech check of 30.
- Report back to Eddie and get your assignment.
- Deal with a suspicious merchant near Jean Sky Diving. Find out he's a bounty hunter with a Speech check of 30 or an Intelligence check of 6.
- Report back to Eddie and get your final task.
- Seek out Johnson Nash or Lieutenant Hayes and find out the New California Republic's plans for the NCRCF. Nash will give the information for 100 caps (50 with a Barter of 30, or free with a Speech of 30); Hayes will provide nothing due to the classified nature, although the military orders can be pickpocketed from him.
- Report back to Eddie and inform him about the NCR's plans. Eddie urges the Courier to kill any NCR troopers on the way out of the facility.
- Report to Sergeant Lee, assault the NCRCF and kill Eddie.
|1|| ||Deal with Chavez.|
|2|| ||Tell Eddie that you dealt with Chavez.|
|3|| ||Track down the suspicious merchant and get rid of him.|
|4|| ||Return to Eddie.|
|5|| ||Talk to the locals in Primm and learn what – if anything - the NCR is planning for the correctional facility.|
|6||Report back to Eddie with information on the NCR's planned attack.|
|7|| ||(Optional) Betray Eddie by offering Lieutenant Hayes assistance in retaking the Prison.|
|8|| ||Rendezvous with Sergeant Lee.|
- If you have low Intelligence when reporting to Eddie after dealing with the bounty hunter, you will say "I got rid of the bunny hunter."
- Although the player can pickpocket the attack orders from Lt. Hayes before the quest, the player will still be unable to initiate the attack on the Powder Gangers or speak to Lt. Hayes about the attack at all until the player is given the choice during the quest. This also mean the player cannot complete this quest if they are hated by the Powder Gangers.
- A number of cut and partially completed dialogue options exist which point towards the final portion of the quest having had additional options for helping out. In particular, a number of incomplete topics would have allowed the Courier to offer suggestions as to how Eddie could better defend the facility, including posting more guards and placing snipers on the guard towers.
- Mr. New Vegas will report the mission as a failure, as will the ending narration.
Completion of this quest in favor of the NCR will not register the proper result. Even though you gain the fame for success,
- Sgt. Lee may freeze on the steps to the admin building and will not finish dialogue - thus preventing NCR fame. Shooting weapon out of his hand which will turn Lee hostile but then holstering weapon immediately which will return Lee to turn friendly will unfreeze him.
