Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Sell smooch to the Scaven-pickers was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It is located at the Reservation.


After the player meets Marty and learns of his extracurricular activities of creating smooch, the player can sell some to the Scaven Pickers leader, Klik. Since the Scaven-pickers have very addictive tendencies, addiction to smooch will be almost instantaneous. This is a good thing for Marty, since he wanted to get his product outside the Reservation. Marty will maintain the contact with Klik after the player stirs up business, and will cut the player in on some of the profits.

Unfortunately, the long term effect of the Scaven-pickers smoking smooch is fatal. The Scaven-pickers will develop a higher addition to smooch and forget about taking their Rad-X. After a few months, all the Scaven-pickers will die off.

This is also a means to help complete another quest, "Eliminate the Scaven-picker pests." While this approach is not instant, it will eventually do the job.

Character type completion breakdownEdit

  1. Combat, Diplomacy, Stealth, Science Boy - If the player does not feel like wasting all his ammo on the Scaven-pickers, then this is a good passive aggressive way to get rid off them.
