We Rangers hail from back east, what used to be called Nevada. Our heritage stretches back to the days of the Texas Rangers.

Tycho is a Desert Ranger and a recruitable NPC in Fallout.


A survivalist by trade, Tycho is a veteran of the wastes. 他戴著一個防毒面具(為防萬一),穿著強化皮甲,帶著手指虎、軍用水壺、所有常見的生存裝備。通常可以看到他穿著沾滿塵土的皮裝甲,脖子上掛著防毒面具,護目鏡用來預防沙子和眩光和一個用於偽裝和遮陽的沙漠迷彩斗篷。他手上的雙管霰彈槍further confirms the feel that he's just another mercenary.

However, in reality, Tycho comes from the Desert Rangers, a small, but formidable faction from the Mojave Wasteland and beyond, experts in survival and self-styled peacekeepers of the wastes. 他的背景使得他知道如何在沙漠中求生。他離開家鄉和商人及探險者在沙漠上遊盪多年,一次次帶回貨物和地圖。提可一開始只是小小旅行一段,當他更有經驗後就走得更遠了。他到達德州的墨西哥灣然後回到西部。

最終在西海岸他做為一個長途探險家加入沙漠遊騎兵,stopping in Junktown for some rest and relaxation, just as the Vault Dweller comes to the settlement to kickstart a small revolution.

Other interactions

To obtain Tycho, the player must head to Junktown and be at the Skum Pitt located in the far North Eastern part of the city at 5 o' clock. He will join you indefinitely if you have taken on Killian's quest to deal with Gizmo. If Killian is killed, Tycho becomes non-recruitable.

Due to sprite limitations, he can only use rifles, shotguns, small handguns and a spear. He has 60 hit points. It is unwise to give him any weapon with a burst function; he wastes ammo and can accidentally shoot you if you are near his target when he uses the burst function.

Effects of player's Actions

If caught stealing Neal's Urn from the Skum Pitt (before recruiting), Tycho will become hostile to the player.

Tycho can teach you some survival skills.

  • He is equipped with the best armor and has the most health of all the NPCs who can join you.
  • Although he wears a regular leather armor, Desert Rangers seem to have a special armor issued to the U.S. Marine Corps before the Great War.


Tycho appears only in Fallout.

Behind the scenes

  • Tycho's grandfather was a Desert Ranger (the Desert Rangers are a reference to Wasteland, a game from 1988 which is considered to be Fallout's predecessor). Tycho also mentions the "fat freak" from Las Vegas, which is a reference to Fat Freddy from Wasteland.
  • Tycho is not mentioned anywhere in Vault Dweller's memoirs, but Tandi in the Cafe of Broken Dreams mentions him and the Vault Dweller, indicating that they did get together after all.
  • According to lead designer Josh Sawyer ([1]) Tycho's description in Fallout was the inspiration for the NCR Ranger combat armor and the Desert Ranger combat armor in Fallout: New Vegas as Tycho himself is described as "a man in dusty leather armor with a trench coat and gas mask".
