Man, you do like the rare stuff! Where were you when I was selling some depleted uranium rounds a few years back? I don't do chips, though. Ain't a market in it. Anything else?

— Jake

Jacob (aka Jake) is an arms dealer[1][2] in the Hub in Fallout.


A former member of the Union of Atomic Workers,[3] Jacob is the top weapons dealer in the vast Hub. Operating out of the Old Town, he offers plenty of high end weapons for sale, including rechambered sniper rifles, rare Geiger counters,[4][5] and even second generation combat armor. He doesn't miss the Union, as a few years after he left, the entire organization was wiped out by hostile mutants.[3]

He's known for high prices, but with price comes quality.[6] Understandably, the Hub Police is not too thrilled with high powered weapons on the market and they've harassed him repeatedly, however, he's known to be an honest merchant to those who wind up in Old Town.[3] Although he deals in rare wares, he focuses exclusively on weapons, as it's a market with seemingly bottomless demand. He's been known to sell such rarities as depleted uranium rounds.[7]

  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 The Vault Dweller: "{117}{}{Tell me about yourself.}"
    Jacob: "{118}{}{Well, I've been around. Used to be with the Union of Atomic Workers. Sort of like the Brotherhood, but less friendly. They wanted to keep to themselves, and I... well, I wanted to see the world and be my own boss, so I left.}"
    "{162}{}{The mutants wiped 'em out about ten years ago, so I guess I made the right decision. I eventually settled down here. The cops don't like my trade and I've been rousted more than once, but I'm a helluva lot more honest than most of the merchants here.}"
  4. The Vault Dweller: "{103}{}{What are you selling here?}"
    Jacob: "{109}{}{I deal with high end arms. The best stuff you can find this side of the Brotherhood, and since the Brotherhood doesn't deal with outsiders, I've gotta' say I'm the best. I have a Sniper Rifle, and you would be hard pressed to find Flame Thrower fuel anywhere else in the wastes. On yeah... I've got a Geiger counter, too. Very rare.}"
  5. The Vault Dweller: "{111}{}{Tell me more about the Sniper Rifle.}"
    Jacob: "{123}{}{Ahh, the DKS is a fine long range weapon. It was originally .308, but we rechambered it for the more common .223 round. We tuned the barrel, too. Most importantly, check out this trigger. Smooth, huh? The trigger breaks perfectly now. Overall, this is a good choice for hunting any type of animal...}"
  6. Ian: "{163}{}{Jake's weapons. High prices, but really good guns.}"
  7. The Vault Dweller: "{104}{}{What can you tell me about a water chip?}"
