The Dam powers a lot of New Vegas. And then there's all that clean water lying in Lake Mead, too. Anybody who owns the Dam owns the territory.

Easy Pete is a former prospector living in the town of Goodsprings in 2281.


Easy Pete used to be a prospector looking for working technology, chems and guns to sell. Pete once hit a "...real good claim out east by the river", but was run off the land by raiders. He eventually got tired of the prospector life and decided to settle in Goodsprings, where he now watches over a herd of bighorners.[1]

  • Easy Pete is one of the only non-player characters outside Caesar's Legion, besides Marcus, Follows-Chalk, and Salt-Upon-Wounds that pronounces Caesar with the traditional Latin pronunciation /ˈkaisar/, rather than /ˈsiːzər/.
  • Easy Pete claims he has a buried dynamite stash somewhere. This is proven in Ghost Town Gunfight, as the Courier can convince him to give them dynamite, with an Explosives skill of 25.
  • If Easy Pete is not at home or in his chair, he can be found in his booth in the Goodsprings saloon eating or drinking.
  • The items in his house can be taken without gaining bad Karma. Additionally, one can sleep on the bed since it is classified as being unowned.

Notable quotes

  • "Now I just take it easy and help out with the Brahmins and Bighorners."
  • "The Dam powers a lot of New Vegas. And then there's all that clean water lying in Lake Mead, too. Anybody who owns the Dam owns the territory."
  • "They're slavers, led by a guy named Caesar. Or Caesar. Not sure how you're supposed to say it. A couple of years ago they tried to take over Hoover Dam, but the NCR beat them back. The NCR didn't - or couldn't - finish the job, though. The Legion's got its strength back and is getting ready for another round at the Dam. My money's still on the NCR winning, but you never know. We've been hearing stories about Legionaries on the Nevada side of the river, so keep a gun handy. You don't want to get caught by them."


Easy Pete appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
