For the escaped convicts outside the Bison Steve Hotel, see escaped convict.

The convicts are escaped prisoners who have overrun and occupied the town of Primm in 2281.


The convicts are prisoners who have escaped from the NCR Correctional Facility. Instead of remaining with the Powder Gangers, they decided to travel south and raid the town of Primm.

In Primm, the convicts have established their base of operations in the Bison Steve Hotel, where they are holding the town's deputy hostage. Their leader is also found in the same building.

This character is involved in quests.

My Kind of Town


My Kind of Town: The Courier needs to kill or sneak around the convicts to free Deputy Beagle.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

If the Courier has completed My Kind of Town quest, the convicts inside Bison Steve Hotel will be dead.

Other interactionsEdit

A pair of convicts can be found south of Primm, patrolling towards the Nevada Highway Patrol station. They will not attack the player character on sight, but will instead warn them to back off unless the player character gets too close.



  • The two convicts patrolling near the Nevada Highway Patrol station may end up fighting the Jackal raiders, who are waiting behind the building to ambush. Without intervention from the player character, the Jackals will usually kill the two criminals and hunt down the player character next.
  • The convicts found in Primm are known for using dynamite in many instances. Killing them may be harder for lower-leveled player characters.
  • The convicts no longer belong to the Powder Gangers, therefore having neutral or good relations with the latter does not prevent the convicts from being hostile to the player character. Killing the convicts has no effect on Powder Ganger reputation.


Convicts appear only in Fallout: New Vegas.
