Brothers Grimm is a special encounter in Fallout Tactics.

Here, you'll find two super mutants named Jim and Joe Grimm. Joe stands over his injured brother, Jim, after he was injured by a landmine. If the player helps heal Jim, both mutants will later be available in the recruitment pool.


  • Jim and Joe's personas are reversed after this encounter - the recruitable version of Jim is actually "the brains of the outfit" and his brother Joe becomes a stupid (IN 3) that "likes to bash things and act all masculine".
  • In The Armageddon Rag, Vol. 3, the Brothers Grimm is a reference to the group of Brotherhood of Steel members in the short story "On the Beach".

Behind the scenes

Joe and Jim Grimm are a reference to Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm who are popularly known for publishing a number of German folktales during the early 19th century (Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, etc. to name a few). In this parody, however, the Grimm brothers are semi-illiterate. Jim says, "Sorry, brother, me stupid." Joe, despite carrying a copy of Big Book of Science and Dean's Electronics (both of which can be stolen), says, "the old Brotherhood would of shot first and asked questions later."


  • Due to an error with one of the triggers, the player will not be able to exit the area once the player has revisited the area.
  • If the player leaves the area before both Jim and Joe leave and disappear from the map, they will not be available in the recruitment pool.
