Any luck finding Wild Bill?Milly

Wild Bill is a dead slave found in the the Pitt's steelyard in 2277.


A Pitt slave who has impressive skill with .32 pistol, Bill volunteered for the job of steel ingot collector after the previous Pitt slave failed to return. He knew the odds of returning were not favorable but could not see his friends die when he, at least, had a fighting chance.[1]

According to the note found on his corpse, the trogs were easily dispatched and the steel was easily gathered, but the wildmen finally put him to rest.


Wild Bill developed a keen relationship with a fellow slave Milly, as their time in the mill together was some sort of a bonding experience.

  • PCIcon pc Playstation 3Icon ps3 Bill occasionally seems to disappear completely for no reason, possibly drifting through the wall or floor so he is no longer accessible. PC users can fix this by using the moveto player command, using Wild Bill's ref id. PS3 and Xbox players can also retrieve Wild Bill's Sidearm and other belongings by performing an out of map glitch to get to his body. Shown here on YouTube. [verified]
  • Playstation 3Icon ps3 Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Depending on how Wild Bill's corpse falls through the wall/floor, you may still not be able to loot him even after using the out of map glitch. The quest should still be completable so long as his corpse is visible. If one can see him through the wall but are unable to loot him, try entering 3rd person, as this often makes him accessible.

  • Playstation 3Icon ps3 Xbox 360Icon xbox360 Wild Bill might still not show up even after the map glitch, while one might find wildmen and trogs, Wild Bill is nowhere to be found. There is no known solution to this glitch, making obtaining his firearm and completing the quest impossible. [verified]
