General Becker was considered by both Preston Garvey and James Wire to be a good leader and the main thing keeping the Minutemen together as a unit. After his death, infighting and the inability to decide on a replacement general eventually led to the near-collapse of the Minutemen as they turned to banditry and raiding, activities which would have sickened Becker had he been alive to witness it.
Joe Becker is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
