Isn't that old bomber a beauty? Thanks so much for making an old man's dreams come true.

Loyal is an elder member of the Boomers at Nellis Air Force Base in 2281.


Loyal is the chief mechanic for the Nellis Air Force Base. Keeping the solar array and other key machines functioning are his primary concerns. He has lived at Nellis since his people left Vault 34. Unlike the other Boomers, Loyal does not appear to be xenophobic. He actually seems to appreciate the Courier's help.

Loyal can be found eating breakfast in the mess hall & munitions storage from 8:00-10:00 am, then in the southern hangar of Nellis or in his house, which is the farthest to the left of the three barracks, on the back side of the two main hangars.

Behind the scenes

Loyal is named after Joshua Sawyer's grandfather, who worked as a machinist.[1]


  • Playstation 3Playstation 3 Sometimes, if Crazy, Crazy, Crazy quest has not been completed, Loyal may disappear from Nellis Air Force Base. Completing that quest should fix this problem. Likewise, he can often be found via quest location marker.[verified]
  • Xbox 360Xbox 360 If the player character has completed Volare! before doing the Render Unto Caesar or The House Always Wins questlines, Loyal becomes useless when attempting to get The Boomers to side with either faction. Despite the quest arrow pointing to him, the only remark he will give is about the resurrected plane. [verified]
  • PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 Loyal may go missing after completing Volare! This is because the hanger with the B29 is replaced with another cell. Loyal may be stuck in the old cell. Loyal may be found passing through Black Mountain after killing all Nightkin guards. [verified]

  1. Joshua Sawyer at Reboot Develop 2018: "That's Loyal. For any Fallout: New Vegas fans out there, if you know Loyal from the Boomers, he's named after my grandpa. He was a machinist, he helped form the Machinist's Union at the place where he worked in Wisconsin."
