RetriveQuoted verbatim, error appeared in the original sourceIcon sic.png Parts/Gain Access to Vault 15. is a quest in Fallout 2.


The New California Republic needs pre-War computer parts from Vault 15, the vault from where they originated. However, squatters have moved into the area directly over the vault and set up a small shanty town. For some reason they rejected any diplomatic talks with the NCR and denied them access to the vault. Eventually some of the republic's representatives stopped returning. President Tandi is looking for a specialist who can get the computer parts for the NCR, and possibly negotiate terms for the vault and the town above it to join the republic.


If the Chosen One speaks with Deputy Karl (located in the Police Station in Downtown NCR) about work opportunities he suggests getting an audience with President Tandi at the Hall of Congress, and that she is "looking for someone... resourceful." Tandi offers the Chosen One $500 for retrieving the needed computer parts from the ruins of Vault 15. This conversation is also an opportunity to find out more about the canon events of the Vault Dweller's adventures in Shady Sands as well as the inner politics of the NCR.

Once you travel to Vault 15 you will find out that the squatters are not very friendly. You can get access to the vault by either completing the Rescue Chrissy quest and gaining their trust or by simply killing their leader, Zeke, and looting the key-card from his body. If you rescue Chrissy you will discover that the people living in the vault are a group of raiders, known as the New Khans, led by Darion. He and his man are seeking revenge on Tandi and Shady Sands by blocking NCR's access to their place of origin and using squatters as cover.

Vault 15 itself, despite what Zeke tells you, is accessed through an elevator door in the side of the rock wall just left of the building Chrissy was being held in. Players may have missed the elevator on their first visit due to scattered trees and a coat of dust camoflauging the door. The computer parts will be on the 3rd floor in the 2nd room to the right with the lockers lining the walls. At this point you can return to Tandi and get your $500 award. But to get a larger reward and a good ending for both the NCR and the squatters you will have to persuade Zeke to let the vault be annexed by NCR and free the squatters by killing Darion.

If you complete this quest by both getting the computer parts and completing the deal with NCR Tandi would be very impressed and award you with $5000 instead of just $500. If you discovered Vault 13 before you return to her you have the option of telling her about your discovery. However she will refuse to believe your story of talking deathclaws and tell you to stop wasting her time. However, if the deathclaws in Vault 13 are dead, you can inform Tandi for a further bonus, but you must have visited and seen the playback. This amounts to no less than $20000 extra.

Once this quest is completed Tandi will not talk to you anymore.


  • The player must speak with Deputy Karl before Tandi as the doors leading to her office are shut until doing so.
  • If the player retrieves the computer parts from Vault 15 without completing the deal with NCR first the player won't be able to get the good ending for both the NCR and Vault 15 since the player can no longer talk to Tandi.
