Buck Dunton is one of the twins running a Klamath shop in Fallout 2.


He is a tall, heavily muscled man whose face, beneath his beetling brow, is habitually twisted into a bully's smirking scowl. He is identical to his brother, Chuck, to the point of using exactly the same phrases and mannerisms. They are the makers of their "world famous" Dunton meat jerky, made from old, rotten meat, flavored with spices, homemade sauce and choice boot scrapings from the pen.

They spend their nights in the Golden Gecko tavern, drinking and looking for people to wrestle. Their livelihood, though, are brahmin, or rather, stealing brahmin from farmers in the area, typically Torr Buckner.

Behind the scenes

  • Duntons' script checks whether they have the spiked knuckles in inventory whenever combat is initiated. If not, it spawns one in their inventory. This can be abused to farm them for spiked knuckles, by stealing them, entering combat, then stealing the newly spawned knuckles again.
  • Originally, the player was supposed to be able to expose them with the radscorpion limbs found in a shack on the brahmin pastures map, but this feature was cut from the final game.


Buck Dunton appears only in Fallout 2.
