|Side Quest: Blackmail Iguana Bob|
|Go to Junktown and enter the Hospital's basement.|
|Speak to Gretch about the iguana bits.|
|Kill Gretch, Doc Morbid, Flash and Cougar. (optional)|
|Go to Hub Downtown and speak to Iguana Bob Frazier.|
|Force Bob to share his profits.|
|Reward: 500 XP, -2 Reputation|
Visit Junktown hospital, climb down the ladder into the doctor's basement and meet the mentally-challenged dwarf worker Gretch. He will not so subtly let slip about being hard at work sorting out some human body parts to send to Iguana Bob in the Hub. It is then quickly realized that there's more to Iguana Bob's iguana bits than meets the eye.
If the Vault Dweller confronts Doc Morbid over it, nothing will happen and they cannot tell the authorities. Attacking the doctor will prompt his two bodyguards, Flash and Cougar, to defend him. Killing the bodyguards has no repercussions. Killing Gretch will result in a -1 reputation loss.
The Vault Dweller then needs to go to the Hub and find Iguana Bob's stand downtown. A high Speech skill is needed to intimidate him and depending on one's Barter skill, Bob can be blackmailed for a large slice of his profits.
- 500 XP
- A share of Bob's weekly income, depending on the price that was bartered for.
- -2 Reputation per deal made.
It is possible to renegotiate with an increased Barter skill for even more profit. This number can yield virtually unlimited bottle caps, but reputation will decrease accordingly.
Behind the scenes
- When trying to blackmail Bob into paying the player character, one of the dialogue options is to scream "Prime Choice Select is made of people!!!! It's made of people!!!" This is a reference to Charlton Heston's famous line from the film Soylent Green in which his character realizes a similarly morbid cannibalistic truth.
- report Iguana Bob to the Hub police. Along with this quest, it would also have been possible to
