Welcome to Rivet City. Please wait while the bridge extends.

Rivet City guards are members of the security team at Rivet City.

  • If one murders a guard, wait 72 hours, and then come back, all guards remember the crime. However, they are not hostile and simply say "We should throw you off the ship for what you've done, but Harkness told us forgive and forget." Harkness says similar dialogue, albeit stating that he'll "let you go just this once." However, killing the guards again and talking to Harkness will make him say that he'll let you go over and over.
  • If the Lone Wanderer steals a certain number of items (it doesn't seem to have to be from Rivet City), the guards will know about it, occasionally saying things like "You're a lowlife, but keep your nose clean from now on and we'll let you stay."
  • When a guard dies for any reason (not only if killed by the player character) a new recruitment note will appear on the terminal in the bridge tower. The note will disappear after three days when a new guard respawns. One can't get the job and there is no additional dialogue about this.
  • Gametitle-FO3 MZ A Rivet City guard who had been abducted by the aliens can be found pacing around inside one of the holding cells of Mothership Zeta. If talked to, she will respond with, "This can't be happening, this can't be real!"


Rivet City guards appear in Fallout 3 and one appears in its add-on Mothership Zeta.

The Super-Duper Mart, a common spawn point for many a non-player character, supports this spawn point for Rivet City guards for unspecified reasons. [verified]
