Fred appears as a random encounter, with a mercenary bodyguard. When spoken to, he explains that he doesn't have anything to sell at the moment, but is on his way to Vault 81 to restock. He can often be found outside Vault 81 at the makeshift campsite with two Gunner mercenary escorts.
Interactions with the player characterEdit
|This character has no special interactions.|
- If the player character follows Fred after he spawns in a random event it is possible he will walk past his own dead body outside of Covenant, this is most likely an oversight by Bethesda.
- Fred's random encounter can still occur following the completion of Human Error.
- If Fred and his mercenary make it to Vault 81 (if the player character follows them and keeps them alive). They will sit in front of Vault 81.
- Strong "likes" it if the player character kills Fred.
Fred O'Connell appears only in Fallout 4.
