I'll start you off with something easy. Did you notice the bodyguards for hire near the gates when you entered Freeside?The King

Bodyguards for hire are people working in Freeside in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. There are a total of three bodyguards for hire, all near the Freeside gate entrances.


In Freeside, near the gate to North Vegas Square, two bodyguards can be found for hire along with a Kings gang member standing on the street. Pay the bodyguard for hire 100 caps and he will follow the Courier through Freeside until they leave. The other one is Orris, who charges double. The Courier is required to expose Orris' scam or kill him in the quest G.I. Blues.

  • Killing a bodyguard will have a negative impact on the Courier's Reputation in Freeside.
  • The bodyguards rotate, changing which bodyguards will be seen upon entering Freeside. It will, however, always be one Kings gang member and Orris until G.I. Blues is completed, when another bodyguard will take Orris' place.
