I'm Lieutenant Gorobets, First Recon. If you're looking to collect a bounty, you should talk to Major Dhatri.

Lieutenant Gorobets is an NCR Army officer in the 1st Recon stationed at Camp McCarran in 2281.


Descended from Ukrainian immigrants,[1] Gorobets is a competent NCR trooper in charge of 1st Recon Alpha Team deployed in the Mojave. He is a tough, charismatic leader and apparently, the only one in the team without a traumatizing experience under his belt.
