The ears of the good of the world is all I ask and currency is what you will receive.Daniel Littlehorn

An ear is a miscellaneous item in Fallout 3.


Daniel Littlehorn from Littlehorn & Associates, located at the scrapyard, rewards the Lone Wanderer with 10 to 15 caps and -10 Karma for each ear. This is the bad Karma alternative to the Lawbringer perk, in which fingers are collected instead of ears.


  • Ears can be found on good characters (such as Abraham Washington or Agatha) when the Contract Killer perk has been chosen.
    • If other characters (including partners, guards, and the Mysterious Stranger), creatures, or environmental aspects (such as: an exploding cars) do more then 50% of the target's total HP in damage, an ear will not appear on the body.
  • An easy way to earn ears is to go to Rivet City, as the security guards there respawn every three days.
  • The most abundant supply of ears that can be found are off of Regulators which are encountered randomly through having negative Karma.
  • Slaver-hunting hitmen are also a good supplier of ears, should one also choose to be a slaver.

This happens regardless of whether they are "good" or not. The ear will spawn every time they're knocked unconscious, for a potentially endless amount of ears. [verified]
