Bobbi No-Nose is a mobster living in Goodneighbor in 2287. She initially is found inside her hideout.


A self-proclaimed "legitimate" businesswoman operating out of Goodneighbor, every place Bobbi sets up shop in soon becomes her base of operations.[1] She, while her influence is small, is a highly ambitious woman, not like the chem dealers and petty thieves in town. Recently, No-Nose is preparing to pull off a large heist in Mayor Hancock's strongroom in the NH&M Freight Depot to the southwest. She has a long history of trouble with the ghoul and aims to get back at him by breaking into his property and stealing anything of value.[2]

Through a spy she planted within the raider gang in the Massachusetts State House, Bobbi managed to acquire an accurate map of the Boston underground, created by a city official before the Great War.[3] To recruit diggers for her project, the Big Dig, and further her vendetta against Hancock, Bobbi passes it off as a scheme to get revenge on Mayor McDonough for banishing her kind from Diamond City. The target is supposedly a secret strongroom located directly beneath the mayor's office, which Bobbi claims is home to a huge stash, containing thousands of caps, a large cache of weapons and other valuable loot. She promises her staff caps and a share of the spoils when the job is done.

For months, work is slow and the project has barely progressed. In fact, the miners are soon driven off by mirelurks by the time the Sole Survivor arrives, having accepted Bobbi's job. This, in turn, makes them her new gun. To help expedite the excavation, she has them get her old tech expert, Mel, from the Diamond City lockup by whatever means the Sole Survivor sees fit.

Interactions with the player character[]

  • After completion of the quest, player character interaction with Bobbi ceases. Once the player character or Bobbi leaves the shared cell, she is disabled. Upon enabling, her route is directed back to the first place one meets her, and Mel follows her. When she is at her destination, she stands in place and is unable to be spoken to by the player character. Leaving the shared cell will always disable her because she is scripted to be disabled after completion of the quest.
  • If the player character leaves after talking to her when John Hancock sends them to kill her, they will lose the location of her hideout: Hawthorne Estate. If one needs to find it, it is just south of Andrew station. The station is between Gwinnett Brewery and the South Boston military checkpoint, an area a bit west of The Castle.
  • Bobbi's level scales with the player character and has an abnormally high amount of health (on par with Coursers or Conrad Kellogg), but has zero armor.
  • At some point before the events of Fallout 4, Bobbi and Mel broke into an old Vault that was heavily irradiated.[4]


Bobbi No-Nose appears in Fallout 4 and Fallout Shelter Online.

Behind the scenes[]

Bobbi No-Nose was originally named Jules. This is evidenced by four greeting lines with the prefix MS16Jules, three of which are spoken by Bobbi and the remaining one being used by the player when telling Mel that Bobbi sent them. An unused debug message box for The Big Dig, MS16TempStage35Message, also evidences this: "So after you've dug for a little bit, you'll hit bedrock, and the workers will tell you to ask Jules what to do next."
