Three-Card Bounty is a side quest in Fallout: New Vegas.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The Fiends have become an increasingly serious problem for the New California Republic, so much so that bounties have been put on the three Fiend leaders: Cook-Cook, Driver Nephi and Violet.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Speak with Major Dhatri about the Fiends.
  2. Kill Cook-Cook, Driver Nephi and Violet, preferably keeping their heads intact.
    1. Cook-Cook is just north of the South Vegas Ruins west entrance in a camp in and around a ruined building.
    2. Driver Nephi is located northwest of the Samson Rock Crushing Plant. Lieutenant Gorobets of First Recon (currently stationed at Camp McCarran) can be asked to have his squad aid in the assassination of Nephi.
    3. Violet is found at her trailer fort south of the Poseidon gas station.
  3. Bring the Fiend leader's heads to Dhatri as proof of their death.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The title of this quest is a play on the name of the confidence game, Three-card Monte.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png After completion, Major Dhatri will no longer speak to you, making it impossible to talk to him about Bitter Springs.
  • PCIcon pc.png After killing Driver Nephi and returning the head to Major Dhatri by choosing the option to reclaim your bounty, Dharti may ask to see the head but nothing happens and the conversation ends. You must keep talking to him until the head is removed from your inventory and your bounty received. This may take several attempts.
  • Dhatri may say that there are two targets left when there is only one and other slightly bugged phrases, caused by killing a target which you had not told Dhatri you were going to kill yet. This has no effect on gameplay, but can make speech options difficult to navigate.
