You win, you get this power fist. I win, and you’re my gimp for a night.

Francis is a super mutant veteran living in Broken Hills in Fallout 2.


Francis is a particularly well built super mutant, a veteran of the Unity. He has a penchant for dark leather and BDSM sexual encounters. He finds his partners in the Broken Hill bar, where he typically sits with boredom on his face and a massive gauntlet in his pouch. How does he do it? Simple. He's the local arm wrestling champion and challengers bet their dignity against the fist.

  • Beat Francis at armwrestling.: To beat Francis, the Chosen One needs Strength and Endurance of 9. Francis has two Buffouts the Chosen One can steal and use or feed them to Francis and wait six hours, so that they only have to face a weakened Francis due to withdrawal effects.
  • Find the missing people for Marcus.: Francis can be confronted once the Chosen One finds the note on the dead bodies beneath the town.

Effects of player actions
