Proto id00000449 (Jagged Jimmy J)

I see a pilot. I see someone who wants to FLY. You just need a little help, a little…JET. And my pilot friend, when it comes to Jet, Jagged Jimmy J's your MAN. I got the best shit in New Reno, pure Jet, straight Jet, the SAFEST Jet.

"Jagged" Jimmy J is a drug dealer living in New Reno in Fallout 2.


Jimmy is one of the many Jet dealers plying his trade on the streets of Reno. His appearance is shifty, with the large jagged scar running down the side of his face giving him a (somewhat) menacing appearance. Jimmy likes to spin a story of how he got it (and the facial tic) by defending a woman from an assailant, but everyone knows he did it himself, while trying to shave under the influence of Jet.[1]

His everyday post is right in front of the Jungle Gym on 2nd street, hawking his wares to people passing by. He styles himself as the best drug dealer in town, supposedly getting the purest Jet straight from Myron. All to ensure that his clients are healthy and happy... Well, enough to keep coming back for more.

Other interactions

  • Jimmy will gift the player a canister of Jet if they listen to his story about the Scar.
  • Characters who finished the game, became a Prizefighter, Made Man, or Porn Star and have less than 4 Intelligence can cause Jimmy's brain to short-circuit by replying to him asking if they know them with the sentence "How can one TRULY know another, Jimmy? Is it even possible while we are on this mortal coil? Or is it only possible when we free ourselves from our physical bodies?" This allows them to steal all of his possessions without penalty.
