Detailed walkthrough

After completing the quest Save Killian's life, go to the Skum Pitt between 4:00pm – 6:00pm and talk to Tycho. Have a drink with him and discuss his life for a permanent +5% Outdoorsman bonus. If the Vault Dweller is nice and mentions trying to clean up Junktown of its crime problem, the option of him joining them will appear once the player speaks to him again after the conversation ends. Once he accepts, he will be in the Vault Dweller's party and give 300 XP.



  • If Killian Darkwater dies, Tycho will not be recruitable.
  • Getting caught stealing Neal's urn turns Tycho hostile before he is recruited.
  • The Outdoorsman bonus can only be obtained before Tycho is recruited, by choosing the appropriate dialogue lines.
