Watch out for the Misfits here - 9th Platoon, word of their fuck-ups is legendary.
”— Rose of Sharon Cassidy
New California Republic Army's 9th Platoon, Squad CG554-2, commonly referred to as The Misfits, is a military unit stationed at Camp Golf in Fallout: New Vegas.
The Misfits earned their nickname at Camp Golf because they don't fit into the Army: They're undisciplined, lazy, and they have absolutely no espirit de corps in the opinion of their commander, Sergeant McCredie. Only Corporal Mags, their squad leader, exhibits promise, but the general opinion is that a farm boy, a near-Fiend, and a smart slacker do not make a good unit. Mags is annoyed by what she perceives a dead end in her career. Their sergeant is annoyed by their lack of determination, but he's willing to do whatever it takes to whip them up into shape - if it kills him or them.
- The Flags of Our Foul-Ups quest focuses on making the Misfits worth something and can be resolved in multiple ways. Depending on the choices, the Misfits can become a valiant unit shattering unit readiness ratings, drug-addicted berserkers who are shot for dishonorable conduct, or deserters who are hanged for cowardice before the enemy.
