But we liked Split Jack's plan. So if you can get that bitch at Rivet City to buy into our "protection services", we'll split the take with ya.

Bandits are criminals found in Wilhelm's Wharf in 2277.


Led by Split Jack, they are plaguing the water caravans going from Rivet City to the Capital Wasteland. Leadership of the group goes to whoever "hits hardest" according to Jack - which is him currently.

This character is involved in quests.


  • Protecting the Water Way: Three of them will be attacking the bait caravan. While those are hostile, the others are initially friendly. Should the Lone Wanderer replace Split Jack by beating him in a duel, the bandits ask you to extort the "protection money" from Officer Lepelletier in his stead. When fighting Split Jack, the bandits will become hostile if you use anything but the designated weapon.
