- Convince them to leave with a Speech check of 65.
- Convince them to leave with a very high reputation with the NCR.
- Failing all the above, kill the mercenaries.

- After convincing Norton to walk away via caps, the area just south of Silver Peak Mine shows a non-hostile non-player character on the compass. The spot the compass points to shows an option to talk to Norton and one or more mercenaries. Doing so does not activate a dialog.
