  • My Kind of Town: McGee can be instated as the new sheriff of Primm if the player sides with the NCR.

Effects of the player's actionsEdit

If the player selects Meyers or Primm Slim to be the sheriff instead, Sgt. McGee will travel to Camp Forlorn Hope along with Lt. Hayes. Unlike almost every other non-player character in the game, including Lt. Hayes, McGee does not fast-travel when the player is not in the same active map cell. Thus, he will never make it to Camp Forlorn Hope unless escorted by the player, an extremely difficult task considering his path takes him through some of the most dangerous areas in the game. If he reaches Forlorn Hope, McGee has no new dialogue.



  • The game will inform the player if McGee dies at any point, similar to the message that appears if an non-player character companion dies on Hardcore mode. He may be killed by a gecko before the player gets to meet him.
  • McGee levels with the player character, which is quite unusual for a minor non-player character. At higher levels he can have 200 to 300 hit points, compared to just 50 hit points for a normal NCR trooper.
  • McGee was supposed to be a Lance Corporal instead, according to game files.
  • The route he takes is: north along the road out of Primm veering left into the campsite, where you find Barton Thorn, then continuing along the road past Jean Sky Diving and turning east onto the road towards Hidden Valley. He then travels along the southern path through scorpion gulch and heads south towards Gibson's shack. Then he travels east, passing north of Gibson scrap yard. Continuing east, passing north of Southern Nevada Wind Farm where he then heads northeast up the hill and down into Camp Forlorn Hope.
  • When he is at the rock face on the hill he may disappear into the rock but he should then reappear on top of the hill.
  • Unless the player disarms the mines on the makeshift bridge into Primm, McGee may kill himself by stepping on them as he makes his way into town.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "I have no idea. I just go and do what they tell me."
  • "Do you think I'm blind? Of course I can see the Powder Gangers have taken over Primm. You have any other obvious facts you'd like to share? Don't fist fight with Deathclaws? No kissing Cazadores?"
  • "I'm from Hub originally, but it's been a long time since I saw it. I'm on my second tour here. Most Non-Commissioned Officers are."


Sergeant McGee appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  • PCIcon pc After the Player decides to let the NCR take over Primm, Sheriff Sgt. McGee will show up in the Sheriff's shack. Sgt. McGee will get stuck in the corner of the room, near the desk, because a bench is blocking his path, and, as a result, he will not leave the shack. [verified]
