Smiley is a merchant in Appalachia in 2103.


Smiley came to Appalachia with the goal of trading gold bullion for caps. According to him, he gets his gold from "a thousand friends" and to not "worry about the specifics," but rather focus on "all you can get with it."[1]

He claims to be the "truest of patriots" and that there's nothing more "American than a pile of gold."[2] He also fancies himself a "remarkable individual" and claims those that can afford all his weekly stock of bullion are one as well since "it takes one to know one."[3]

Smiley's bullion resets each Monday. Prior to patch 21, the reset occurred on Saturday at 8 p.m. EST, though the patch rectified this and changed the reset to actually occur on Monday.[4]


Smiley appears only Fallout 76, introduced in the Wastelanders update.

  1. Vault Dweller: "How did you get gold bullion?"
    Smiley: "Here and there, I've got a thousand friends. Hopefully you're one, too?" *chuckle* "Don't worry about the specifics. Think of all you can get with it. The Secret Service has a lot of very exclusive, very powerful tech, right? So let's do some business."
  2. Vault Dweller: "Nice outfit"
    Smiley: *Chuckle* "I'm the truest of patriots, and nothing says America more than a pile of gold, am I right?! So, can I help you showcase your own American spirit?"
  3. Vault Dweller: [Pay 6000 caps] "Give me all you have. 300, is it?"
    Smiley: "You are truly a remarkable individual. And I should know! 'It takes one to know one' as my dearest Mamma would always say."
