Around 2198, a Reaver delegate came to the Brotherhood of Steel Bunker Delta, bringing news that a large Calculator's robot force had all but annihilated the camp. The Reavers' numbers were devastated by relentless attacks and, barring the Brotherhood's help, faced certain defeat. Normally, the Brotherhood would gladly allow one enemy to destroy another, but the Reavers had something to offer - an EMP device that had a devastating effect on electronics, which made it an effective weapon against the robots. They agreed to give the Brotherhood both a prototype of this weapon and instructions on its workings in exchange for rescuing four of their highest-ranking officials: Albert Lamore, Rodger Gaire, Glenda Close and Tobias Peste. Soon, the squad led by the Warrior arrived, destroying all the robots. The four leaders were found and saved, and the EMP weapon retrieved.
All the Reavers rescued by the Brotherhood were placed in internment camps. After some time, some of them were allowed to join the Brotherhood, while others were sent to labor camps.
The mission in Newton involves finding and escorting four Reaver leaders to safety in exchange for a prototype EMP weapon.
Newton appears only in Fallout Tactics.
