Arturo is a local resident of Diamond City. He is a seasoned gun enthusiast, making a living as a weapons dealer in the city's local market place. He runs a weapons store called Commonwealth Weaponry. Arturo is the father of Nina Rodriguez, a child who is educated at the Diamond City schoolhouse. Her room, with her toys and study desk, can be found in her dad's house, behind his shop.
As a local of Diamond City, Arturo knows the residents in town, notably Nick Valentine, a synth and private detective. He sells the Big Boy, a custom two-shot Fat Man, and a custom laser pistol Old Faithful, that deals double damage to targets with full health. He also sells power armor frames and common weapon essentials such as ammo, mods and crafting materials.

Crafting component shipments
The following shipments are sold by Arturo at any time:
- If the player character has Deacon as a companion, he may strike up a conversation with Arturo filled with cryptic phrases and code words, indicating he may be a member of, or at least an informant for the Railroad.
- After the conclusion of In Sheep's Clothing he will lament the fact that he sold Mayor McDonough the firearm he used.
- Arturo has a separate trailer sitting on the rooftop of his store which he seems to use for storage of ammo or other goods. Entering is considered trespassing.
- "Listen, I can sell you guns, swords, whatever. And they'll keep you alive for sure. But the real secret is in the mods. The little personal touches. Install a scope, expand the clip size, whatever. You spend time with your gear, and you'll have the right answer to every problem. Anyway, let's get back to you, and what kind of protection you need."
- "Protection for sale! Hand-tooled pieces! Don't walk outside the Wall undefended! High quality protection for sale. Need some custom hardware? We got a free workbench for all your modifications. Scopes, clip sizes, barrels. We got small arms, long arms, ammunition! Don't be caught dead! Protection from Commonwealth Weaponry."
- "You know, a shotgun's great insurance against Raiders, but I got a lot of options here."
- "You're kidding right? Caps only friend." – Arturo if the player character attempts to use the charge card
