Trouble Man. You don't wanna know how I got the name.

Trouble Man is a raider found in the Pitt in 2277.


Trouble Man is a member of the Pitt raiders who is usually found guarding the catwalks in The Pitt Downtown. Due to the waking nightmares he experiences likes to keep to himself, rarely conversing with others.[Non-canon 1] Trouble Man often consumes both beer and jet to quell these nightmares, but this leaves him able to only say a few words,[Non-canon 1] most often being his own name.[1][2]

Trouble Man tells the Lone Wanderer that he did "something bad" to get his name,[1] warning that he is trouble and that they should be careful.[2]

    "Keeping to himself and not wishing to join in conversation with others, TroubleManIn-game spelling is haunted by waking nightmares that he stifles with a heady mixture of Beer and Jet. This subdues the demons but causes him to utter only a few words, and none of them pleasant."
