Detailed walkthrough

Pronto in Paradise Falls complains about having no good items to sell as all he gets from the other slavers is leftover junk. If the Lone Wanderer offers to help him out, he will ask them to bring him 20 Chinese assault rifles.

Typical store items before and after giving Pronto the rifles

Pronto's shop will have a better inventory and he will also get around 400 caps instead of around 150 (see picture) to barter with. His store is turned into a "typical good gun and ammunition store," of which there already are several in the game, with an additional 20% discount.


  • If one has begun this quest and wishes to complete it, do not become hostile with anyone in Paradise Falls. While the doctor will still offer services, Pronto does become hostile towards the player character, making it impossible to complete the quest.
  • Pronto does not care about the condition of the rifles, so repairs are not necessary.
  • After one has given him the 20 Chinese assault rifles, they have to wait at least 24 hours before his inventory improves.
  • Pronto will not accept the Xuanlong assault rifle, so player characters using the weapon need not worry about accidentally giving it away.
