Oh, yeah…two Salvatore boys with those pistols killed a buncha Bishop's men, then shot down some of Mordino's boys who'd been tryin' to muscle in on the West Side. Since then, the other families steered clear of the Salvatores.

Jules, Fallout 2

The West Side Massacre was a major event in New Reno, when the Salvatores brutally asserted their presence with laser pistols in early 2241. Two of Salvatore's men eliminated a group of rival thugs belonging to the Bishops and Mordinos, the latter of which tried to encroach on their territory in the West Side.[1] The laser pistols they used gave them an extreme firepower advantage over their opponents, resulting in a shock and wave attack.[2]

The shock of losing men to superior armaments (obtained by the Salvatores in a secret deal with the Enclave) resulted in the families giving their territory and possessions a wide berth. An uneasy peace followed,[1] though Mordinos plotted how to get back at the Salvatores for the humiliation suffered.[3]

Appearances

The West Side Massacre is mentioned only in Fallout 2.
