The thrust control modules are a quest item in Fallout: New Vegas.


They can be bought from Old Lady Gibson for 500 caps, 250 caps with a barter or Speech check. If you have the Lady Killer perk, you are able to obtain them for free.

You can also obtain them by killing, or pickpocketing Old Lady Gibson, taking her key and using it on the metal box.

If you have a Lockpick skill of 50 or higher, you can pick the lock on the metal box with the thrust controls inside it.

  • There are two versions of the modules, with differing weights and values, though only the weightless and valueless one is used in the game in normal play. Both versions are marked as quest items.
  • The thrust control modules have the same in-game model as scrap metal.
