Get Sid to tell PC about Bear's Heart Bomb and Kyle's Radio Trigger
|The following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
Get Sid to tell PC about Bear's Heart Bomb and Kyle's Radio Trigger was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. This quest would have been located at the Bloomfield space center.
Sid, a member of the Rusty Hooks, needs to be convinced by the Prisoner to reveal vital information about the gang's boss and his pet: Kyle and Bear, respectively. Should Sid be pushed hard enough with a high Charisma, he will open up as to how he was the one that implanted the heart bomb within Bear. There are many ways to complete this objective, depending on the player character's play style:
- Combat Boy – The Persuade skill will be necessary using this method, as to aggressively persuade Sid into giving in depth knowledge about both the heart bomb and the radio trigger.
- Diplomacy Boy – Also with the Persuade skill, and in order to get the optimum outcome, the Prisoner can talk Sid through his guilt in order to discern information regarding both the heart bomb, and the radio trigger. Should this route be taken, the Prisoner will be awarded a half-way finished radio signal jammer, which must be finished in order for it to work properly.
- Science Boy – Through helping Sid to complete his various assigned tasks, Sid may lighten up and divulge a bit about the heart bomb and radio trigger should he be pushed. Each task completed makes Sid trust them a bit more, and will increase chances of success.
- Stealth Boy – Same as Combat Boy, although Deception plays a role in getting Sid to talk.
After Sid has been convinced to reveal his knowledge, the time comes for the Prisoner to make an important decision regarding the date of the Rusty Hooks. They can either disable Bear's C4 heart bomb, gain control of the heart bomb, disable the heart bomb, or rewire the heart bomb in order for it to explode prematurely.
