Loading Public Appeasement Oration... complete. Howdy... citizens. How about a yee-haw for law and order in the fine town of ERROR: TOKEN NOT FOUND?

Primm Slim is a customized Protectron found at Primm in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

An "authentic cowpoke", Primm Slim is a pre-War RobCo Protectron customized by the owner of The Vikki and Vance Casino to act as its official spokesbot.[1] It is an almost inexhaustible source of information about the minor crooks the casino is named after, Primm, and various other spots around the town. Due to a stroke of luck, Slim managed to survive two centuries relatively intact and was restored to working order to continue its vigil over the Casino.[2]

Not that he's perfectly intact: A pair of wannabe outlaws hacked into Slim to steal Vance's gun, so that they could embark on a life of crime.[3][4]

Quests[edit | edit source]

  • My Kind of Town: Primm Slim is one of the sheriff candidates for Primm. It can be reprogrammed by using Science 30 or combining three 3 fission batteries and four conductors. Beagle will resign if Slim's made sheriff, complaining about its adherence to logic and letter of the law. Slim can be later heard on Radio New Vegas, though his programming leaves much to be desired.
    • If Slim apparently disappears after accepting the role, it's because it has a bugged patrol route that leads him to stand in one spot south of the Bison Steve Hotel for the remainder of the game. Any remaining convicts will take potshots at Slim, eventually destroying it. It will take a while, however, as Slim has an extraordinary amount of hit points to begin with and levels up with the player.
  • A Pair of Dead Desperados, I: Investigating the gun case and learning that the gun has been stolen allows the player to inform Primm Slim of this fact and pick up the trail.

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "Loading Public Appeasement Oration... complete. Howdy... citizens. How about a yee-haw for law and order in the fine town of ERROR: TOKEN NOT FOUND?"
  • "Yahoo! I ain't had a chance to tell their tale in a mess of years. First things first: any bosh you've heard about Vikki and Vance being copycats ain't nothing but ill-tempered slander. Fact is, they begun their crime spree two days before Bonnie and Clyde robbed their first bank - so who was copying who? Now true, Vikki and Vance didn't exactly cut a wide swath of murder and bank robbery across the central U.S., like Bonnie and Clyde did. It was more like a narrow swath of shoplifting, check-cashing fraud, and gas pump driveoffs - but crime is crime! They drove reckless, too. Having lived by the gun - well, Vance owned one, anyway - it was only fitting that the duo of desperados would die by the gun. Perhaps it was fate itself that accidentally drove them into a crossfire between police and a gang of bank robbers in Plano, Texas. Or maybe they just didn't notice until it was too late. It's been said that Vikki would have tried to cash a bad check in that bank, had she lived. We'll never know for sure. All we know is that the crossfire tore the car and both occupants to pieces, and the police issued an official apology. You can put your eyes on the genuine Death Car just over yonder, and there's Vance's machine gun in the case next to it!"
