Abbreviated to "Fisto" by the Courier, the robot is the only intact Protectron at the location. Using the operating system v. 0.6.0.3, Fisto can be reprogrammed to serve as a sexbot at the behest of James Garret for the quest Wang Dang Atomic Tango.
Interactions with the player character
|This character is involved in quests.|
- Wang Dang Atomic Tango: Fisto is the only robot that can be programmed as the sexbot needed to complete this quest for James Garret. The player character can either use their own Science skills to reprogram it or obtain a program from Ralph.
- Player characters of any gender can utilize Fisto's features, the first time of which is free. Once delivery to James Garret is complete, each subsequent use costs 10 caps. Each time the routine lasts one in-game hour, beginning with the screen fading to black and subsequent drilling sounds. Afterward, Fisto will advise that any numbness will subside in several minutes.
- 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.
- After Fisto is reprogrammed, it will still relay generic protectron comments.
- Fisto states it will require a hardware and software upgrade to offer enhanced services, but none are available.
- If the Courier has the Wild Wasteland trait, Fisto can potentially be attacked by Maud's Muggers outside of Cerulean Robotics.
- "Please assume the position."
- "Numbness will subside in several minutes."
- "Greetings. Fisto is programmed to please."
- "I am programmed for your pleasure."
- "I will require a hardware and software upgrade to offer enhanced services."
Fisto appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenes
- Atomic Wrangler, speaking to it and declining its services will give the Courier 10 caps. This can be done as many times as desired. While only a small amount, it is a very convenient source of caps to gamble in the casino. 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] After recruiting Fisto and returning to the
- Ralph in their inventory. After programming the sexbot, the holotape is still obtainable. [verified] The Courier can program Fisto, even without the holotape from
- 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]
- Primm Slim, or in the regular Protectron tone. [verified] It does not matter if the Courier is standing or crouching; Fisto will say "protect and serve" in a similar manner to
- 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]
- 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]
- Occasionally, Fisto will not move after he is programmed, but upon reaching the Atomic Wrangler, he will be there. [verified]
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]
- 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]
- Fisto: "Fully Integrated Security Technetronic Officer active and reporting for duty."
- Courier: "That is a mouthful. Let's shorten that to Fisto."
Fisto: "Yes, ma'am. Fisto reporting for duty. Please assume the position.

- Courier: "I can't feel my legs!
Fisto: "Numbness will subside in several minutes. Awaiting further orders."
