Very surprising, I saw Donovan on Wasteland fighting with some mutants, I saved him and he told me he was looking for me. When I asked why, he told that Reilly sent him to find you, bringing some ammunition to you. Very nice thinking - In fact, it was just a little before I was losing hope that everything about Fallout 1 and 2 changed/died, but seeing this, it's very nice. Goekhan 00:03, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Hostile?[edit source]

I just cleared out the middle level and rooftop in the Statesman Hotel. When I got to the rooftop, the Rangers showed up on my compass as enemies. So I killed them and I am now hostile to the Rangers. Is there anyway that I can change that? --Azncutthroat 21:59, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I had something similar happen after I had saved the Rangers and signed on to scout for them. The second time I went back they all attacked me out of the blue. No idea why. I found it interesting because RR are supposedly based on the real life Roger's Rangers, a division of which (led by Moses Hazen) committed the infamous St. Anne's Massacre which one of my own ancestors (a preteen boy) barely escaped with his life. I felt funny about saving RR in the game knowing that, and even more inclined to just brush them off as treacherous bastards in-game -- heh. But seriously, that isn't SUPPOSED to happen, right? --Werebat 00:03, 9 May 2009 (EST)

Same thing happened to me when returning with the geomapper to collect caps. I had Charon with me and I thought he was the casue at the time so I loaded a saved game and had him wait outside, but it made no difference. I ended up just killing them all and taking their loot.--68.40.247.21 06:08, 26 July 2009 (UTC) (UPDATE) I reloaded my save and checked it out again. Donovan was not there, only the other 3. I never recalled seing him, live or dead, anywhere after the rescue scenes and I never looted his body...I suspect this is why the others were hostile....there all dead now in my game, all the same :)--68.40.247.21 04:12, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Huh, This happened to me as well. I walked into Ranger HQ to collect on my mapping locations, and was promptly attacked by Reilly, Butcher, and Donovan. I don't understand why because I don't have a follower and I haven't harmed or offended them in any way. The only possibility in my mind why they would be so angry at me would be when Brick died in the fight out of the Statesman Hotel. But that was a super mutant that took her down, not me. Oh well. If I can't collect my caps, I'll just return fire and take whatever they have. Too bad I can't fix it. I play on a 360. 24.115.77.83 05:00, August 23, 2010 (UTC)Nicky

Hostility Bug[edit source]

I'm not certain if the trigger is correct, but there seems to be a bug that happens if you find Donovan dead in the Wasteland and loot his body. You were apparently supposed to save him from a Super Mutant attack, but failed. Upon returning to the Ranger Compound you may find the other Rangers hostile towards the you.

PC users may use the SetAlly console command to fix the problem. (SetAlly Faction, Faction, Value, Value)

SetAlly 295a3, 1b2a4, 100, 100

If you looted his body (out in the Wasteland) you will also find you have a non-droppable and useless quest item named Donovan's Wrench.

To remove this wrench use the following command:

player.removeitem 70CD4 1

Someone else may add this bug note to the appropriate place in the article(s) if desired. I wasn't sure where to put it. 98.196.5.170 11:11, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Similarity[edit source]

They kind of remind me of Razak's Roughnecks, including the green armor. Except the Roughnecks' armor was powered. I doubt it's a reference, but I thought it was an interesting coincidence. PositronicSpleen 21:54, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

A homage to Aliens?[edit source]

Maybe it's just me, but I see a lot of similarities between the rangers and the space marines from Aliens. The combat armor is the same design, color, and they both even have little drawings and designs on them. Brick looks and behaves very much like Velasquez (the tough woman with the red bandana and big guns) and for some reason, Donovan reminds me of Hicks.


Yeah i'm pretty sure this is true, i mean the main character's name in Aliens is Reilly right? and the quest is a lot like the movie script, they're barracated in a building fill with super mutants, low on ammo, and try to fight their way out.Septic101 01:09, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

It was actually Ripley. -DragonJTSLeave me a message 04:09, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

In the movie they have to barricade themselves within the complex to hold off the aliens, in the game the Rangers barricaded themselves on the roof so it is similar to the movie. Reilly sounds somewhat close to Ripley too. I do believe that Reilly's Rangers (both the quest and the actual rangers) were based off the movie and its probably why I like the Rangers so much.

Definitely a homage to the film Aliens... and the Colonial Marines.

Faction?[edit source]

I heard unconfirmed rumors according to which if you successfully clear the quest by keeping all Rangers alive, you will be added to the Rangers' faction by the game, which would make this the only faction besides the BoS that you can actually join. Can anyone confirm? 89.189.38.226 12:25, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

I have never heard of anything about being officially put in the Reilly Rangers, only way I have heard it happens is with mods.--KieranBOS 12:38, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Not officially, I mean in terms of ingame coding. In essence, I was told that my PC is flagged as part of the faction if the quest is completed successfully, even though the game tells you nothing about it. As I'm playing on PS3, I can't confirm whether this is true or not (no access to game code, lol), but PC players should be able to check their saves' set flags and see if this is true.

Either way, it's not something the game tells you - it's only there in terms of code, like when wearing the Ghoul Mask ghouls go non-hostile towards you. 89.189.38.226 13:26, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Possibly a reference to Roger' Rangers?[edit source]

What would make me think that?--Gothemasticator 20:22, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
