Mister Gutsy is a combat variant of the popular Mister Handy, and is equipped with a Plasma weapon and flamethrower.Loading screen
Repeat, will you comply?— Mister Gutsy

Mister Gutsy is a robot that appears in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76.


The Mister Gutsy model of robot was commissioned by the U.S. Army just before the atomic apocalypse of 2077.Loading screen

Mister Gutsy is a line of military robot models created by General Atomics International. It is a militarized version of the Type-I Mister Handy, an earlier civilian model robot created by the same company for use in household duties.

The Mister Gutsy, unlike the Mister Handy, is a dedicated combat robot and is easily distinguished from the Handy model by its military olive-drab paint job, U.S. Army roundel insignia, improved weapons and the replacement of its British butler voice with that of an American drill sergeant. This model was commissioned by the U.S. Army just before the Great War in 2077. They have distinctive "soldierly" personalities, with an advanced AI somewhat similar to that of the Mister Handy model. More likely than not, due to the conflict with China that caused the Great War, Mister Gutsies often scream anti-communist phrases, similar to Liberty Prime. Mister Gutsies also have a more "gung-ho" patriotic personality compared to the other combat robots found in the post-War United States.


Mister GutsyEdit

Mister Gutsy

Mister Gutsy is the second most dangerous robot in the Mojave and Capital Wastelands, trailing behind sentry bots. Gutsy models are armed with a plasma gun, roughly equivalent to a plasma pistol, for long-range combat. At close-range, the robot relies on its flamethrower. This affords the Gutsy decent protection against both ranged and melee targets, a feature lacking in any other robot save the civilian Mister Handy. Additionally, due to their hover mechanism, Gutsy units do not set off the proximity fuses on mines.

Enclave Mister GutsyEdit

The Enclave Gutsies are very similar to their free roaming wasteland counterparts, with the exception of its paint scheme. Instead of the normal matte olive green of the U.S. Army Gutsies, these feature a dark metallic color. Its optical sensors also differ from the standard yellow, instead being a menacing deep red.

Strike team Mister GutsyEdit

An unused Mister Gutsy creature with the editor ID 21ec0 is related to the Outcasts, however it just wears the regular green US Army skin. However in the game files there is a connected skin for this Gutsy without a model.

Hardened Mister GutsyEdit

It's speculated that, considering their exclusive location and unconditional hostility, these unique robots were designed and/or programmed specifically to protect the Tesla-Beaton prototype en route to wherever it was being transported before the crash; by this logic, it can be assumed that the skeletons found in the crash site were not members of that Vertibird's crew, because of their appearance outside the craft and only with the Tesla-Beaton prototype. This theory is reinforced by the fact that there is no disguise, not even the Enclave-friendly Remnants power armor, that will cause them to be neutral/friendly.

Mister Gutsy prototypeEdit

Not much is known about the prototype series, but it can be assumed that these robots were commissioned by the US Army to test and evaluate the capabilities of a combat version of the existing Mister Handy. This series was commissioned some time before the production series for trials, which were obviously successful as the production models were brought into service shortly before the Great War. The prototypes were likely phased out in favor of the slightly improved Production Version, and appear to have been either mothballed before the bombs fell, or deactivated due to long service without maintenance. In either case, they appear to have been salvaged by prospectors and reprogrammed for use by private individuals, such as the one located in a house in Nipton.

Mister Gutsy Mark seriesEdit

Mister Gutsy

The Mark series of Mister Gutsy robots only appear in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues. The atomic apocalypse had prevented them from entering service.
