This is Powder Ganger territory - my territory.

Eddie is the leader of the Powder Gangers operating in the NCR Correctional Facility in 2281.


Eddie is the leader of the Powder Gangers and can be found on the top floor of the administration office in the NCR Correctional Facility, having occupied the warden's office. Eddie, a former NCR prisoner, assumed control over the Powder Gangers after Samuel Cooke, the original leader of the prisoner uprising, left north with a group of followers to Vault 19 in order to wage a personal war against the NCR. Since then, Eddie has led the former prisoners as they have raided caravans passing near the NCRCF, always making sure that every Powder Ganger gives him a cut of the spoils.

If asked for work, Eddie will give the quest I Fought the Law. Killing him will result in the failure of the quest unless progressed far enough to betray him to the NCR. A positive reputation with the Powder Gangers will grant dynamite and various gunpowders from him. He will give out a maximum of 5 dynamite and 20 each of rifle and pistol powder once an Idolized status with the Powder Gangers is attained.

Eddie is protected at all times by three Powder Ganger bodyguards, as well as his good buddy Scrambler, the toughest member of the Powder Gangers.

After Hoover Dam, the leaderless Powder Gangers at the Correctional Facility vanished into the wastes, leaving the prison empty. The Correctional Facility became another abandoned ruin in the wasteland, its carcass occasionally picked over by enterprising prospectors. Eddie dies.

With the Dam firmly in their grasp, the NCR turned its attention towards wresting the Correctional Facility from Powder Ganger hands. The Powder Gangers are no match for the battle-hardened troops of the NCR, and summary execution awaited the Powder Gangers who managed to survive. Do not kill Eddie and complete the endgame quest Eureka! for the NCR.

Most Powder Gangers at the Correctional Facility fled into the wasteland rather than face the advancing forces of the Legion. Those brave or foolish to remain were killed or crucified by the merciless Legionaries. Do not kill Eddie and complete the endgame quest Veni, Vidi, Vici for Caesar's Legion.

The NCR, battered by the loss of the Dam, were unable to devote any troops to retaking the Correctional Facility from the Powder Gangers. As a result, Powder Ganger raids on caravans became an unfortunate fact of life in the Mojave for years to come. Do not kill Eddie and complete either All or Nothing for Mr. House or No Gods, No Masters for an Independent New Vegas.

  • Killing Eddie without starting the quest I Fought the Law will result in failure.
  • With sufficiently low Intelligence, the Courier will ask "What is funny about a merchant?", Eddie will reply that he meant the merchant is suspicious, not humorous. Later on, the Courier can state they killed the "bunny hunter" although this does not bring any new dialogue.
