I don't put the good stuff out on the table. If you're interested, I can show you the stuff in the locker.

Flak is a former slaver from Paradise Falls who now lives in Rivet City in the year 2277.


With Shrapnel, he runs the Flak 'N Shrapnel's weapons store in the marketplace. Flak and Shrapnel share their store's inventory, so buying or selling from either one of them will update both of their stocks.

If Flak is enslaved by the player character for Paradise Falls, Flak 'N Shrapnel's in the marketplace will still be open. They consistently have a larger amount of caps than the other shops in Rivet City. After the market closes, he goes to the Muddy Rudder for a drink and heads off to his cabin to sleep afterward.

Notable quotes


Flak appears only in Fallout 3.


  • PCPC Xbox 360Xbox 360 If the player chooses to enslave Flak and then releases him from Paradise Falls, he may be found back in Rivet City doing his usual routine. The problem is he is now missing his dialogue options. When interacted with, he will just have a line stating "You saved me from those bastards. I won't forget it." This can be fixed by using the removefromallfactions command on Flak. [verified]
  • PCPC If the player sells a good condition weapon and buys it back from Flak, the weapon will be in bad condition instead. [verified]



  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.72: "Flak
    Flack, 50, is pretty gruff, but he's completely reformed from his early days of being a Slaver and is an upstanding citizen of Rivet City. He spends his days in the shop with Shrapnel, occasionally taking a break to drink down at the Muddy Rudder. Flak still has a bit of the tough guy in his speech, but he's not as aggressive as Shrapnel. He really tries to tone it down when he's at the shop. He's the target of Slavers in Miscellaneous Quest: Strictly Business."
