Take Over the Hangdogs was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was located in Blackfoot Village.[1]


The player character must challenge Bares-His-Teeth for the leadership of the group by pitting his dog against the Packleader's dog. It's not likely that the player character can succeed unless he has the Devil Dog on his side, but there may be alternate methods.

Character type completion breakdown

  1. Science Boy - Develop steroids to use on his dog before the fight so he wins. Or metal teeth.
  2. DiploBoy - Talk to the Daughter of Hecate into helping him. Maybe have the Daughter declare Bares-His-Teeth unfit as a leader and threaten a fertility curse if the PC isn't made the new leader immediately?
  3. Stealth Boy - Slip a soporific into the dogfood, making the Packleader's champion sluggish and more easily defeated.
