Sic Semper Tyrannis is a two star (★★) challenge added in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.

Challenge requirements

The Courier must kill President Kimball with any one-handed pistol.


Grants 500 XP upon completion.


  • This challenge is not repeatable.
  • This challenge completes when President Kimball is killed by detonating a C-4 plastic explosive. This may be because the detonator is held in one hand and acts as a one-handed pistol.

Behind the scenes

  • The name of this challenge is a reference to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The assassin, John Wilkes Booth, yelled the phrase after shooting the president with a pistol in 1865.
  • The phrase itself in Latin translates to "thus always to tyrants," and is believed to have been coined by Marcus Junius Brutus on his assassination of Gaius Julius Caesar in 44 B.C..
  • Sic Semper Tyrannis is also the state motto of Virginia.
