Numbness will subside in several minutes.

Fisto (Fully Integrated Security Technetronic Officer)[1] is a reprogrammable Protectron in Cerulean Robotics in Freeside in 2281.


The Fully Integrated Security Technetronic Officer, abbreviated to "Fisto" by the Courier,[2] is a unique Protectron class security robot that utilizes the v. operating system.[3] It was created by Cerulean Robotics prior to the Great War, and is the only intact, albeit incomplete, robot within its facility.

Other interactions[]

  • The player character can have Fisto perform its sexual routine on them regardless of gender. The first time upon activation is free, but once upon delivery to James Garret, each subsequent use costs 10 caps. Judging by the dialogue, it penetrates cavities below the recipient's waist for an entire in-game hour with the screen going black for about five seconds and drilling sounds being played.[4]
  • Although Fisto has a lot of Hit Points, it cannot use its lasers and has to rely on its unarmed skills for combat. As he suffers from a Protectron's slow walking speed, this severely limits his offensive capabilities.


  • James Garret's dialogue suggests that he has always wanted a sexbot, therefore, Fisto could be for his own personal use.
  • If the Courier has the Animal Friend perk, the giant rats that inhabit Cerulean Robotics will not be hostile towards the Courier but will be hostile towards Fisto. Fisto's weak offensive capabilities might not be enough to defend himself against the rats. Killing a rat will not prompt any of the others to become hostile towards the Courier, unless they were hurt indirectly by an explosive.
  • Even after being reprogrammed with Ralph's sexbot holodisk, if the Courier speaks to Fisto, it will still say generic Protectron lines such as "Protect and Serve!"
  • Fisto informs the Courier that he will need upgrades to boost his "performance" capabilities, but no such upgrades are available.
  • Fisto only attacks with its right arm.
  • If the Courier has the Wild Wasteland trait, Fisto can potentially be attacked by Maud's Muggers.

Behind the scenes[]

  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 After recruiting Fisto and returning to the Atomic Wrangler, speaking to it and declining its services will give the Courier 10 caps; this can be done as many times as desired. The reason for this bug is that the answer he gives for declining his services is the same as the one he gives when the player character asks for a refund. [verified]
  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 The Courier can program Fisto, even without the holotape from Ralph in their inventory. After programming the sexbot, the holotape is still obtainable. [verified]
  • Playstation 3Playstation 3Playstation 3 If the Courier talks to Fisto after telling him to go to the Atomic Wrangler (before he reaches it), he will say "protect and serve" in a very sharp or acute voice. However, if one attempts to pickpocket him, he will say "protect and serve" but in a deep voice. [verified]
  • Playstation 3Playstation 3Playstation 3 It does not matter if the Courier is standing or crouching; Fisto will say "protect and serve" in a similar manner to Primm Slim, or in the regular Protectron tone. [verified]
  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 After having sex with Fisto at the Atomic Wrangler, the Courier will be able to ask for its services. Upon entering the bedroom, the only option will be giving up on sex and getting a refund. [verified]
  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 Sometimes, Fisto will not activate, even though the Courier has successfully hacked the computer. Since no other options are available, the player may have to reload a previous save. [verified]
  • Xbox 360Xbox 360 Occasionally, Fisto will not move after he is programmed, but upon reaching the Atomic Wrangler, he will be there. [verified]
  • Playstation 3Playstation 3Playstation 3 Once Fisto has left the building, if the Courier tries to head to the Old Mormon Fort, the game may start lagging heavily and eventually freeze, forcing one to restart the console. [verified]
    • Playstation 3Playstation 3Playstation 3 Solution: Head through a door leading to Freeside first and then head to the Old Mormon Fort. This should prevent any lagging or freezing. [verified]
