You a merc? 'Cause you don't look like a prospector.

The arms merchant is a retired NCR soldier running a weapons stall at the 188 trading post in 2281.


A veteran of the First Battle of Hoover Dam, the nameless merchant originally served in Third Platoon of Bravo Company as a Staff Sergeant in the NCR Army. Following her rather direct refusal to flog two "deserters" (young soldiers who got drunk on the Strip and missed roll call) she was discharged from the military for insubordination. Despite this, she remains fiercely loyal to the NCR and continues to work for it as a freelance arms merchant.

Starting her business up was a relatively simple task: gather a few veterans, bribe a Gun Runner to get some stock and establish a network of merchants selling weapons and ammunition to NCR sympathizers at bargain prices, a small, but powerful contribution to the war against Caesar's Legion.

The merchant herself picked the 188 trading post to set up shop, dealing out of the back of an old army truck. Apart from being the local hub of commerce and trade, she gets to see her old unit occasionally, ensure their commander's treating them fairly and slip the young troopers a magazine or two to keep them armed.


The arms merchant operates her business out of the back of a pre-War military truck at the 188 trading post. At night, she can be found asleep in the trailer on the opposite side of the underpass. Nevertheless, she will be happy to both talk and trade if awoken.

She stocks guns, weapon mods, and ammunition. Her stock recycles every 72 hours.
