My Kind of Town is a side quest in Fallout: New Vegas.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The prison break at the NCR Correctional Facility, Primm has become overrun with convicts and the town sheriff has even been killed. Without some form of law soon, Primm could be wiped from the map.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Talk to Johnson Nash about the situation in Primm, or rescue Deputy Beagle in the Bison Steve Hotel, and then talk to him about Primm's issues.
  2. Find a replacement sheriff: either Primm Slim, Meyers, or the New California Republic Army.
    1. To promote Primm Slim to sheriff, he must be reprogrammed with a Science check of 30, or be provided with three fission batteries and four conductors.
    2. To bring in Meyers as sheriff, he must be talked to at the NCR Correctional Facility and notified that Primm needs a sheriff. He says he will need a pardon letter first, so travel to the Mojave Outpost and seek out Major Knight who will pardon Meyers with either a Speech check of 30, 200 caps or by being on good terms with the NCR.
    3. To have the NCR annex Primm, speak to Lieutenant Hayes in the NCR camp on the western edge of town. He will request an additional squad assigned to Primm and refer the Courier to Major Knight at the Mojave Outpost. A Barter of 20 or completion of the quest "Can You Find it in Your Heart?" will convince Knight to send reinforcements.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

"My Kind of Town (Chicago Is)" is a popular song composed by Jimmy Van Heusen, with lyrics by Sammy Cahn. It was regularly performed live by Frank Sinatra, and he included the song on four of his records.

Icon cut content.pngThe following is based on Fallout New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

A cut speech exists with in the game's files, meant to be delivered by Meyers to a small group of inmates close to Meyers should you recruit him to be the Primm's new Sheriff. In it, Meyers calls upon the other inmates to join him in forming a new police force in Primm, calling them "honorable and looking for redemption" despite not having "experience with law enforcement... at least not on the enforcement side."

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Even though the Courier convinces Meyers to be the town sheriff, people across the Mojave (including citizens of Primm) will mention a disgust in Primm's militarization by the NCR, stating "Primm wimped out and accepted NCR rule, some people will do anything to feel safe." Similarly, if you put the town under NCR rule, people will comment about the new sheriff instead of the NCR.
  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If the Courier has completed the quest "I Fought the Law" by helping the NCR take over the facility, Meyers will be locked in a permanent "Goodbye" conversation loop, talking as if the NCR is still invading, even if they killed everything and the quest is completed, thus preventing the Courier from asking him to become active Sheriff of Primm. Sometimes no dialog options are available.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Major Knight will not have any option for filling out a form of pardon for Meyers. You may only be able to discuss NCR control with Knight.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Primm Slim may not talk to you if you acquire Vance's 9mm submachine gun. If you intend to reprogram him to become the sheriff, it may be best to do so before acquiring the gun.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If you have ED-E with you when you go talk to Beagle after freeing him, after asking about where to find a new sheriff, everyone in the Vikki and Vance Casino will start attacking ED-E, though they won't become hostile toward you unless you shoot them.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png After completing the quest, some of the Primm townspeople, possibly including Ruby Nash turn hostile and begin attacking you. They may be killed without incurring a karma penalty.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Meyers may become hostile if the Courier enters the prison violently, regardless of whether or not Meyers gets attacked.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png After completing the quest, nobody but Beagle will leave the casino, so nobody will patrol the area outside and you won't be able to buy or sell to Johnson Nash because he will tell you to wait until he get back to his shop. Also everybody will thank you for getting law in town so the game seems to realize that you finished the quest, but they still stay in the casino. Variation of this is you can still trade to Johnson Nash in the casino.
