Stimpak Value Edit
This quest rewards only 1 item per 5 scrap metal. The item is usually bought from vendors for far less than 50 caps. As such, it's probably better to deliver the scrap metal to Walter at Megaton (assuming it is still there). 5 loads of scrap metal will reward you 50 caps, while delivering it to Winthrop will reward an item with a vendor value of less than 50. So, a run to Walter with 5 scrap metal is more profitable than a run to Winthrop. --Radnus 126.96.36.199 19:26, November 1, 2009 (UTC)
But what about the ghouls? After their robot went crazy(not my fault, wanted to know what the 'disable combat inhibitor' button did), they need all the help they can get to keep the museum going. JerichoRCDF 18:43, December 2, 2009 (UTC)
Why should I help you? Edit
I never trade scrap metal with him, he already said they don't need most of the stuff such as rad-x. So why be greedy and trade me one of something you ghouls dont even need/use, for 5 of something that you do need. I rather save the scrap for experience, or even better having the pitt add-on and using the ammo press.
