This character has no special interactions.

Effects of player's actions[edit | edit source]

  • Deputy Steel will replace Deputy Weld if he is killed (unless Broken Steel is installed).
  • If Megaton is destroyed in The Power of the Atom quest, Deputy Weld's faceplate will survive the atomic explosion and continue to welcome people to Megaton (albeit in a garbled manner) and state that "the bomb is perfectly safe".
  • Deputy Weld can be deactivated by hacking a computer terminal in the Megaton armory. A skill of 75 Science is required to hack it and deactivate Deputy Steel. If the Robotics Expert perk is used to sneak-deactivate him, he still says his phrases and, later on in the game, will return to normal.
  • Deputy Weld will respawn after a while if he is killed.
  • Killing him results in a loss of Karma.
