Is that so? Well, since we're hirin', you can just head right on in and fill out a fuckin' application. I'll let 'em know that you're comin'. They'll take good care of you once you get inside. (Joining the raiders)

Mex is a Pitt raider guarding the gate to the Pitt around 2277.

Background

Cruel and despicable, even for a Pitt Raider, Mex has been removed from general guard duties by Ashur and sent to guard the gates to Pitt Downtown after bouts of Pitt slave punishment that left many with horrific injuries. Adept with a rifle, Mex is content with tagging escapees, laying down a variety of mines, and watching his prey explode in a variety of impressive arterial spray patterns.[Non-canon 1]

Daily schedule

Mex and three of his men keep their guns trained on the road into town all day, ready to blow away any pests or vermin trying to get in.

Effects of player's actions

  • If the Lone Wanderer tells him they are a returning escaped slave, he will strip the Lone Wanderer of their inventory (except the "hidden weapon" possibly received from Wernher), give a slave outfit that is automatically equipped (whether the Lone Wanderer is wearing one already or not), and then tell them to enter Downtown.
    • If the Lone Wanderer tells him they came looking for work, he will sarcastically invite them to enter through the door to Downtown and fill out a "fucking application", whereupon the same happens as noted above; an ambush with items stripped (except the "hidden weapon"), and the slave outfit.
    • Killing him on the way in once again sets off the ambush, except there is different dialogue from the ambushers.

Inventory

Infiltrator

Notes

  • Mex also has an Infiltrator, the silenced and scoped R91 assault rifle featured in The Pitt. He is not the only non-player character to wield this weapon, however, as his two guards as well as Gruber in The Hole also wield it.
  • When he strips the Lone Wanderer of their inventory, even if not carrying a thing, he still asks where they got it all.

Notable quotes
