Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and is not canon.

Use the Mega-Flamer to Eliminate the Rusty Hooks was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was located in Bloomfield Space Center.[1]


After completing the Mega-flamer, and if the player is good at his persuade skill, he can gather the Rusty Hooks for a demonstration of the Mega-flamer. When everyone is gathered in front of the Mega-flamer (aided in direction by the PC), the player can fire up the Mega-flamer and turn the Rusty Hooks into smoldering piles of ash. Good fun for the whole family.

Character type completion breakdown

  1. Combat Boy, Science Boy, Stealth Boy – Will need a bit of the Persuade skill to convince the Rusty Hooks to "participate" in the demo. Otherwise, the Rusty Hooks will be on to the player's intentions. They will like the PC a bit less.
  2. Diplomacy Boy – Time to shine. Good Persuade skill gets the optimum outcome – BBQ Rusty Hooks.
