Red 888 Guns is the premiere weapons expo in the San Francisco area, run by Mai Da Chiang in 2241. His prices are extremely steep compared to other vendors. However, he stocks hard-to-find weapons, ammunition, and armor in his inventory, even power armor. He is one of only two merchants in the game, alongside the dwarf Buster, who sells the 4.7mm caseless ammunition.
Two tables, chock full of guns and ammo, take up the southern half of the store. Mai Da Chiang and his imperial bodyguards stand guard.
Red 888 Guns appears only in Fallout 2.
Behind the scenes
- The store owner's name, "Mai Da Chiang," can be literally translated to either "buy big guns" or "sell big guns" depending on the tone used. The word "Chiang" is not strictly correct, however, as the true pinyin (romanization of Chinese) for "guns" is "Qiang."
- In Chinese culture, eight is considered to be an auspicious number (as are numbers composed of more than one eight).
