Big Boss was a pre-War cigarette company.
Big Boss cigarettes were a popular brand before the Great War, being found in and around major cities including Hopeville, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C. Outside of major cities, they were also popular with tourist destinations such as Pilgrim's Landing, the Sierra Madre Casino & Resort and Zion National Park. The company went out of business after the War, but enough of their product survived that it is found and still used by wastelanders.
Behind the scenesEdit
|The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
The brand name "Big Boss" may be an allusion to the popular stealth/action series Metal Gear and Metal Gear Solid. One of the primary characters in both series is code-named Big Boss. Cigarettes are a recurring inventory item in almost every Metal Gear game. In addition, in Metal Gear Solid 4, the brand of cigarettes used during the game is The Boss brand, similar to those in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
