Part of 9th Platoon at Camp Golf in 2281, the Misfits are appropriately named because of their lax behavior and lack of combat readiness. A mix of volunteers and conscripts, the Misfits have each proven to be mediocre or outright terrible soldiers so far, and their army careers have dead-ended with their being dumped at Camp Golf since nobody else would take them. Their immediate superior, Sergeant McCredie, is at his wit's end after so long trying and failing to make proper soldiers of them, but he remains convinced it can be done, even if he cannot imagine how.
Interactions with the player character
The Courier has the opportunity to whip them into shape during the quest Flags of Our Foul-Ups. Depending on the completion of the quest, and the Courier's actions elsewhere in the Mojave, the Misfits may play a key role in repelling the Legion assault on Camp Golf during the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, or desert and be court-martialed and executed by the NCR Army, among a variety of possible outcomes. Most crucial in interacting with the Misfits themselves is how effective the Courier is in attempting to influence and correct their behavior, and in what way.
