Skip the quest
Is it possible that after you have accepted the quest and not enslaved anyone could you just make your karma bad and grouse will let you in? I really dont need caps.... God damn ghouls 23:40, April 4, 2010 (UTC)
- **UPDATE** I tried. No you can not. I just got the same dialogue and went in and got shot at. God damn slavers...... God damn ghouls 19:38, May 17, 2010 (UTC)
I'm Just A Good Person
are there any ways that you can use to not have to enslave anyone or mez anyone and still complete the quest? like kill grouse?
If you enslave bad people/ people who are trying to kill you, then it'scool.
- There's a speech check (with a cost in caps), and there's always the option to enslave Arkansas, since he's hostile towards you - unless you killed him already. The next best option is to enslave Red, if you don't want to so Big Trouble in Big Town (at least, not until after you eventually slaughter the residents of Paradise Falls, or do the quest by killing Red in the slave pen).
- On all my good person runs, I either leave Paradise Falls alone, or I slaughter everyone who's not a slave (and some slaves, such as Crimson and Clover). I usually leave the town alone, and don't interact with it all. I think there may have been a run or two where I played a good character who was also a slaver. Kris (talk) 20:18, August 3, 2010 (UTC)
I have already beat this mission completely, got all rewards and the slaves are in their pen. But ocassionally(twice it's happened) when I go to paradise falls Grouse will talk to me as if I were in the mission and just killed Arkansas. He'll give me the caps and another slave collar. If I talk to him again and again right after he'll do the same for the others.. I now have seven slave collars. Definately not complaining about the extra caps, it's just very odd and I didn't see it in the glitch section. Has this happened to anyone else?
Red is running away?
For some reason, after enslaving Red, she'll run south, away from Paradise falls. I've tried both responses after enslaving her, but she still does the same. Anyone know why she's going this way? Tgp1994 21:40, July 4, 2010 (UTC)
Susan Lancaster still has to be enslaved after completing Tenpenny Tower, at least if you opt to kill Roy Phillips and crew instead of help them. is it safe to assume that as long as she's alive, she is a VIP in this quest?JLDub 10:48, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Flak and Shrapnel
I like the fact they can't "live" without each other due to... a programming script.Wertoret 17:20, October 5, 2010 (UTC)
Kill 3 get the fourth?
Could I kill 3 of the four, then start the quest and only have to capture one of them? I'm achievement hunting for a second time and need to do this quickly. --Living Lifeless 9 21:59, August 16, 2011 (UTC)
From what I understand that should work perfectly. TheShotgunShogun 00:03, October 20, 2011 (UTC)
i ran into a slight problem with this one.
Red "did not make it" during big trouble in big town. arkansas got killed when he attacked me during wasteland survival guide. arkansas never showed up in the quest but red does. red is shown as a marker in the germantown police hq. lower level and i've loaded it many times. i'm going to try to use console to bring red back. i'll keep you updated.18.104.22.168 23:11, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
- edit* nevermind, i wasn't paying attention. i ran into the red glitch from big trouble. it still let me complete big trouble and collect reward which is why i was confused. that would explain the funny gnr news story about me not helping big town. well you can ignore my boneheaded post here. time to run over to the red page and confirm glitch on p.c.
