Notes

  • Miss Fortune's outfit, though markedly different, is internally considered the female version of the outfit worn by the Mysterious Stranger.
  • Her name is a play on the word "misfortune".

Behind the scenes

  • The outfit bears a resemblance to that worn by the character Patty from the 1979 film The Jerk.

Bugs

  • PCIcon pc Similar to the Mysterious Stranger, Miss Fortune may accidentally shoot one or all of your followers when she appears. This does not cause any damage to your followers directly, though it has a risk of breaking their weapons, and while knocked down they are rendered particularly vulnerable.[verified]
  • PCIcon pc Miss Fortune can be knocked unconscious by enemies inside V.A.T.S. If this happens, V.A.T.S. will not end, and the player will continue to receive damage from enemies. [verified]
  • PCIcon pc If Miss Fortune appears in a certain place, like the NCR Embassy, she may appear out of V.A.T.S and, in the embassy's case, the cafeteria. She goes into 'special' dialogue with the player, but says nothing, then it exits. She can be killed, but her corpse disappears and she respawns instantly at that area. Thus, Miss Fortune's Bad Luck Bringer and the Mysterious Stranger outfit can't be looted from her corpse. [verified]
