We're the Regulators. We've dedicated our lives to bringing the evil to justice. And out here in the Wasteland, there's only one brand of justice: the gun.

— Sonora Cruz, Fallout 3

Sonora Cruz is the leader of the Regulators in the Capital Wasteland. The Lone Wanderer can find her at Regulator Head Quarters in Fallout 3..

Background[edit | edit source]

Leader of a hidden organization known as the Regulators (who are recognized by their long overcoats known as “dusters”), Sonora Cruz is a woman with a mission: to rid the Wasteland of troublemakers and ne’e-do-wells. Her unknown benefactors, who set up this clandestine operation around a decade ago, are willing to pay for scalps, or in the Regulators’ case, fingers.[1]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Sonora is equipped with a unique 10mm pistol (ID 6f210) which does 100 damage per shot. It is only obtainable through console commands (she always flees from combat, so she never actually uses it).

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Sonora Cruz appears only in Fallout 3.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png PCIcon pc.png A common bug found on all versions results from the AI package of Sonora Cruz. Many hostile creatures will spawn around the Regulator HQ including deathclaws, radscorpions, sentry bots, and possibly a large squad of Enclave soldiers, prompting Cruz to enter flee mode. If encountered out in the wasteland, she will still talk as if she is within the Regulator HQ. A solution if Sonora is missing is to enter the Regulator HQ and then bring up the console. Type "prid 0006f212" which will target Sonora, then type "moveto player" which will bring Sonora directly to the players location. Another fix that usually works is to kill all enemies outside the Regulator HQ before entering.
