Merchant inventory[edit | edit source]

Mick is a known source of a number of hard-to-find weapons in the Mojave Wasteland, particularly for explosives. However, most of these items are only accessible after passing the necessary Speech check to get access to his "special inventory". His standard merchant inventory consists of the following:

Once the Courier has passed the necessary Speech check to unlock his "secret inventory", Mick's inventory is complimented by the following items:

  • Additional weapons at varying levels of condition:
    • Three silenced .22 pistols
    • Two grenade machineguns
    • Two power fists
    • One ripper

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Mick appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Mick's secret stash of weapons includes Fallout 3 guns like the Infiltrator, railway rifle, and the Chinese pistol; however, they cannot be obtained because they are classified only as world objects.
  • Mick says "Like I always say, a polite society is an armed society" when the player convinces him to sell better weapons. This is a reference to a quote from Robert A. Heinlein.

    • A possible fix is performed by entering his store, then without interacting with either person, save and quit the game. Then use continue to load. Mick/Ralph will have restocked. This applies to all other vendors as well. If this doesn't work try standing right in front of him, waiting for 3–4 days then saving the game. Exit to the dashboard and then CONTINUE (not load) your game and he should have restocked.
