All right, then. Hopefully I've got something to wet your whistle.

Klamath Bob is a merchant living in Westside in Fallout: New Vegas.


Hailing from Klamath hundreds of miles away, Bob's travels have eventually brought him to Westside, where he set up shop in the old, run-down liquor store, selling booze to people who need something to smooth out the rough edges of everyday existence. He's casual, easygoing, and about as far from formal as can be.[1] He's not all talk either: After he closes up shop for the night, he patrols Westside and helps keep the peace in the community and take out the odd Fiend who might try their luck with the militia.[2]

His kindness doesn't always succeed. Years back, when he was traveling through New California, he came across Mean Sonofabitch, an old mutant, held in captivity and tortured by a group of mutant haters near the Hub. He offered to buy his freedom, but they didn't want any of it, preferring to keep tormenting the poor mutant. He was later reunited with the mutant in Westside and is quite happy to speak for him.[3]

Klamath Bob appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. 1.0 1.1 Klamath Bob: "Howdy. Name's Bob, but folks around here call me Klamath Bob. What can I do you for?"
    The Courier: "I take it you're from Klamath?"
    Klamath Bob: "Heh, yeah good old Klamath. Not a bad place if you like hunting, eating, and skinning geckos all day! Heh heh. It's a pretty dull place, but I hear there was a bit of excitement when this tribal from Arroyo came to town years back. All before my time, though."
    (Klamath Bob's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "What do you do around here?"
    Klamath Bob: "I run the liquor store in Westside. With things this rough, some folks need a lot of booze just to step out the door in the morning. After I close up shop, I walk around and help keep the peace. Not that I'm good with a gun, mind you, but someone's got to do it, you know?"
    (Klamath Bob's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "Do you know anything about that Super mutant walking around town?"
    Klamath Bob: "Oh, heh. Yeah, that's Mean Sonofabitch. I know the name sounds bad, but he likes it. He's one nasty old coot. Far as I can tell, he's one of them original Super Mutants, what came from the Boneyard. Wandered about after that "Master" fellow died. Eventually got caught somewhere around the Hub, back in NCR. Boy, they sure treated him mean down there. Cut him up so bad he can't talk no more. I tried to buy him, just so they'd stop hurting him, but they didn't want any of it."
