Quests involves him repairing stuff, finding people he wants, finding stuff he wants, getting on his good side to get him to upgrade your weapons.[1]

  • Help Garun Get Caught Up, He's always busy trying to maintain the tribe's weapons, and if you could help him get ahead a bit he'd really appreciate it. The results are based on the extent of your skill.[2]
  • Get Garun some Damn Tools, if he wasn't working with such primitive tools, he'd be able to do his work a lot faster. Make or find him some decent pliers, clamps, and such and give or trade them to him. Two multitools should do it.[3]
  • Get Garun some Booze, he likes his booze, won't you get an old man a drink?[4]
  • Train Garun in GunWork, he's old, but he can still learn, and if you teach him how to make bullets and simple guns, he can start making them (slowly) for the tribe.[5]

Other interactions

  • If you provide him the parts to make a zip gun or pipe rifle, he'll turn them into finished weapons.[1]
  • You can give him broken guns and reclaim them (fixed) later.[1]


Garun was to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.
