Mallet McBride is one of the escaped convicts of Tibbets prison in 2253.

Background[edit | edit source]

Mallet McBride is one of the vital escaped Tibbets prisoners. Like many of his escapee comrades, he carries one of the New Plague mutations – a piece in a large and lethal puzzle that the Prisoner needs, and the same virus that inhabits the Prisoner's own body.

Mallet McBride is not a nice man. In fact, he's a downright asshole. If it weren't for the fact that Mallet was in prison for carrying Limit 115, he would be either in someone else's prison, or dead from a gunshot wound to the head. However, now that he escaped Tibbets Prison, he has chosen Hoover Dam as the place to sow his wild oats.

Other interactions[edit | edit source]

Mallet is a pretty big guy and a very skilled unarmed fighter. He's so good, in fact, that legend has it he once laid out a super mutant with one punch, though that legend has never been tested on Beatrice.

Mallet can be found in Dusty's Desires and whittles the day away getting drunk. He takes the occasional job with Crimson Caravan to earn enough money to continue funding his carousing, but he does not have any loyalty to Crimson. Should the player approach Mallet about taking him back to Tibbets, then the player better be ready for a fight. Mallet will not go quietly and will begin to punch the player in the face until he is dead.

Appearances in games[edit | edit source]

Mallet McBride did not appear nor was mentioned in any of the published games, but was to appear in the canceled Fallout 3 project by Black Isle codenamed Van Buren. It is not certain if he will appear in any future Fallout game.
