This Old House
Winthrop is the ghoul handyman in the Museum of History's Underworld, but can't do much with a declining supply of scrap metal. Speak with him and you can offer to collect scrap metal for him. In return he will give you one stimpak, one RadAway, or one Rad-X for every five pieces of scrap metal you can bring him.
Alternatively, if your Strength, Small Guns, Big Guns, Energy Weapons or Melee Weapons is high enough, you can threaten Winthrop into giving you 10 stimpaks and 10 RadAway immediately. Should you threaten him, however, there is no way you can turn in scrap metal any more.
- Casdin and the Outcasts offer a better deal on stimpaks and RadAway; only 2 pieces of scrap per item.
- This does not award experience for turning in scrap metal, unlike Walter's Scrap Metal.
