Bright followers are ghoul members of the Bright Brotherhood at the REPCONN test site.


Bright followers are led by Jason Bright. They want to make a pilgrimage in some rockets at REPCONN Aerospace. A number of them dwell in the upper levels of the REPCONN Test Site until the way to the basement is cleared, while others may be found deceased along the road to the test site and within the lower levels of the building due to an attack by nightkin who arrived looking for Stealth Boys.

More followers have also met with an unfortunate fate in the Mojave Wasteland and can be found dead at various locations. The dead followers tend to be well-armed, especially the ones found within the REPCONN test site, who often carry plasma defenders, a very rare weapon elsewhere.

Behind the scenes

The Bright follower corpses were spread throughout the Mojave, especially in lower-level areas of the game, to give the player character easy access to energy weapons early in the game. Joshua Sawyer made this decision as a plausible explanation for the availability of energy weapons, since the Bright followers are "nutty."[1]

    Joshua Sawyer: "'Why is there a Bright follower in this cave?' I think it was to give more, um... so the idea we had is that the Bright followers are kinda nutty, and we kinda just... or, I distributed them throughout the wasteland to give a little more availability of energy weapons early in the game. Plausibly."
