Behind the scenes

  • Mick's secret stash of weapons includes Fallout 3 guns like the Infiltrator, Railway rifle and the Shanxi Type 17, however they cannot be obtained. However, the hats in the secret room can be stolen.
  • Mick says "Like I always say, a polite society is an armed society" when the player convinces him to sell better weapons. This is a reference to a quote from Robert A. Heinlein.

    • A possible fix is performed by entering his store, then without interacting with either person, save and quit the game. Then use continue to load. Mick/Ralph will have restocked. This applies to all other vendors as well.
  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes, when you ask to buy from him, you will not be able to buy from him. He will simply say, "take a look" and then will go right back to dialogue.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png For some unknown reason, when selling things to Mick, he doesn't pay the full value of the object. As a matter of fact he often doesn't pay anything at all. This happened after dealing a big amount of objects and caps. Due to the use of his repair services, he has over 39000 caps.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png He may not appear inside of Mick and Ralph's store. Reloading the auto save upon entering will correct this.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png He may not give you the Pimp-Boy 3 Billion, even after doing everything required for it.


Mick appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. Rose of Sharon Cassidy: "Ralph might be able to forge a pass into the Strip for you, you need one."
    "Looking for weapons, check out Mick and Ralphs... Mick's probably a sight better than Ralph, always trying to talk me out of my pants."
