Forums: Index > Fallout: New Vegas gameplay help > Boomer Munitions Manager' stock does not respawn

I went to Nellis Air Force Base early and did a couple of quests (to get access to the merchant) in order to be able to buy weapon repair kits every once in a while. I think they are great for expensive weapons?!! Anyhow, after I bought some of his stock and sold some of my loot (leaving him with little caps) I went back many times over several (game) weeks and his stock has not reset, neither has his caps. Any idea what is happening here or how to fix? 16:44, December 27, 2010 (UTC)

Save in front of Boomer Munitions Merchant, quit to the PS3/360 menu, start game, load gamesave & the merchant SHOULD have restocked his inventory! Works with every merchant except with Contreras @ McCarran...

Go to a cell far away from him, like Doc Mitchell's house. Wait three days using Wait. Check again. Nitty Tok. 16:52, December 27, 2010 (UTC)
I bought some of his stuff, just in case something there needed to be retriggered. I waited 4x24h in a hut in the SE corner of the world map. I went back, this time not to the hanger but to the S entrance of the airforce base, and went then to the building opposite of the hangar. Just in case. And.. nothing changed. Same old stock. So.. I have no idea. 19:29, December 27, 2010 (UTC)
Workaround: open console, click on boomer munitions manager, type kill, type resurrect. At least he respawned including his stock. Will see about the future or continue to use the console. 23:51, December 27, 2010 (UTC)

You think you have problems? Twice now he hasn't even initially spawned for me - leastwise, not 'above' his Z level. I have a similar problem (currently) with Blake - not that I'm all that bothered. Since downloading the Gun Runners specs for Alice he hasn't replenished his stock at all and it's been a good 2 weeks of ingame time since I did that! I find it weird how I still enjoy this game though, at times, it's nothing short of a goddamned chore!P3dantic 09:32, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Coming to think of it, there has never been a game with that level of freedom that was anywhere near bug-free. But then again, I don't like that freedom.. I like the perfect solution, and here there is none.. only different choices that are similarly good.. ;) Anyhow, I hate bugs. And I hate companies that release half-tested software to paying clients. But then again, it seems to be common nowadays.. 14:01, December 30, 2010 (UTC)
Actually now, it looks like the big bad patch broke merchants respawning inventory. :/ Nitty Tok. 03:57, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
It seems to be really sporadic. On one hand, waiting 3 days (usually until Wednesday or Saturday) seems to restock most merchants, but some like Alexander have to be waited for in the same cell as him, while others don't seem to be affected by waiting at all. I did some speculations over at the talk page for the Silver Rush, but they're nothing more than speculations. --Distracted Ghost 17:51, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
