The only thing good about them was they gave supplies to weaklings and made it easier for raiders to steal. Society is gone. If you can't change with the times, then the rest of us will pick you off one by one. Or I guess in the case of the Christmas Flood, over a thousand at a time.

Gnash is a raider in Appalachia.


Gnash was originally affiliated with the group of raiders at the Crater, until he eventually left because he believed Meg Groberg was getting soft.[1] He also wanted to find more about the gangs in the area. He admires raiders who engage in violence and torture to get what they want, and admires the Cutthroats. He is on his own and is happy with it for now as he has fewer people to share his chems with. He says he only needs three things in the world: chaos, chems and a cold beer. He is also a smoker and can be seen smoking.

Gnash also wanted to survey the damage caused by the Christmas Flood in Charleston. He does not like the Responders and wishes he could have seen their deaths himself, saying they were only good for giving supplies to weaklings, making them easy targets for raiders to steal from.

He is living in a fortified shed, southeast of the Hornwright Industrial Headquarters map marker.

Other interactions

  • The player can threaten him for caps using a Strength 8+ check. Gnash reacts positively to the threat, assuming the Vault Dweller must be on Buffout and gives them an Addictol, but threatens the Vault Dweller that if they really do touch his caps, they will meet his knife.
  • The player can say they have a thing for bad boys with a Charisma 8+ check, regardless of the Vault Dweller's gender. Gnash says the Vault Dweller is not their type, but posits taking them on a raid and celebrating after, then gives them a Psycho.

  1. Vault Dweller: "How do you know so much about the Cutthroats?"
    Gnash: "I got tired of the Raiders acting like those Foundation babies but with studs and leather, and left to find out more about the gangs that were here. After I heard about what had happened here in Charleston, I knew I had to see all of the destruction myself. Plus I hear there's some sort of Responder training set up around here. I'd love to do my part and help keep them extinct."
