Skeeter is a "ghoul gadgeteer" who serves as a mechanic for Gecko in 2241.

Background[edit | edit source]

Skeeter is a grubby but intelligent-looking ghoul, wearing greasy overalls with a micrometer sticking out of his pocket.[1] He is considered unreliable by the ghouls who administer Gecko's supply locker/storage room, since he once caused a fire, and as such he is typically denied part requisition forms. He is assisted by "Lumpy" John, a human refugee from Vault City who has no visible mutations like the ghouls, but is considered unacceptably mutated by the citizens in Vault City because of his unusual resistance to radiation.

Weapon upgrades[edit | edit source]

Skeeter upgrades weapons. A free upgrade can be obtained from him by fetching the 3-Step plasma transformer.

Base Weapon Upgrade Type Cost
Cattle prod Increased electrical discharge,
Increased damage
Variable
Desert Eagle Expanded magazine,
+12 magazine capacity
Variable
.44 Magnum revolver Speed loader,
Reload speed halved
Variable
Colt Rangemaster hunting rifle All-weather scope,
Increased long-range accuracy
Variable
AK-112 assault rifle Assault rifle (exp. mag.),
+76 magazine capacity
Variable
FN FAL Low-light scope,
Increased nighttime accuracy
Variable

The formula used to calculate the upgrade cost is base price * [ 250 / (160 + player character's barter skill) ]. Example: The Magnum has a base price of 2000. If the player character has a barter skill of 40, the upgrade price is 2000 * [ 250 / (160 + 40) ] = 2500.

The base prices of the upgrades are:

  • .44 Magnum revolver: $2000
  • Desert Eagle: $3000
  • Hunting rifle: $4000
  • Assault rifle: $6000
  • FN FAL: $12,000
  • Cattle prod: $3000
