For the Free Radical mentioned in the Fallout 76 update Wastelanders, see Lugnut.
All right, all right. My mistake. It obviously belongs to you. Now... uhhh... you just watch it cause I won't be so nice next time.

Lug-Nut is a raider in the Capital Wasteland in 2277.


Still recovering from a recent tussle with Ronald Laren, Lug-Nut is troubled by bouts of depression and mania due to his chem habit. He recently had two pairs of nightwear made by a seamstress to rival Lady Frumperton, sending one to his brother Lag-Bolt. He has hidden one pair of nightwear in the old caretaker's locker, as the deceased Grady will not be needing it any more.[1]

Lug-Nut is mentioned by Sierra Petrovita when asked more about Ronald Laren. She will start talking about how tough Ronald is and will mention Lug-Nut and two other raiders. The two unknown raiders were killed by Ronald, who then punched Lug-Nut in the face.

Lug-Nut appears only in Fallout 3.


  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360 PCIcon pc If one gives the naughty nightwear to Lug-Nut before killing him and takes the nightwear back from his corpse, it will be fully repaired. [verified]
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360 PCIcon pc If one takes the naughty nightwear out of Grady's safe, waits for Lug-Nut to spawn, and either puts it back in the safe or drops it on the ground, they can choose the option to give it to Lug-Nut despite not having it. If Lug-Nut is killed, nightwear can be looted off of his corpse, resulting in the player character having two naughty nightwears. This also works if you give the naughty nightwear to a companion.[verified]
