Fallout: New Vegas Walkthrough - Vikki and Vance's Gun
There's a very simple, but surprisingly hidden unmarked quest for those interested in finding a unique submachine gun. Vikki and Vance's gun can be found with a little detective worth and little more intimidation. Read inside for how to find the thieves and retrieve this fancy gun.
Vikki and Vance's Gun - The Investigation
If you go into the Vikki and Vance Casino in Primm, you can look at some of the fine artifacts from Vikki and Vance's "illustrious" crime spree. The one interesting note is their brand new machine gun that is apparently missing from its display. Since that sounds like a nice addition to our arsenal, it's time for a little detective work.
Start by officially looking at the empty display box for the gun. You should note that it's empty. After this observation, you should be able to mention the missing gun to Primm Slim. Primm Slim should first deny that anything is wrong. With 50 points in Science, you can convince Primm Slim that he's been hacked. You can then examine his data banks and sound banks to confirm the robbery and hack. You'll also get a note for future reference. The two thieves have a hideout somewhere close to Westside. It's a long walk, so just keep it in mind until you get there.
Vikki and Vance's Gun - Win's Hideout
You can find the actual hideout by starting at the north entrance of Freeside. Their hideout isn't actually in Westside. It's roughly halfway in between the northern exit of Freeside and the eastern entrance of Westside. Just walk along the road and watch for a shack along the road. It's one of the shacks that you can actually enter along the way.
Inside Win's Hideout, you'll find the two master criminals, Pauline and Sammy. They apparently decided that they could successfully rob all of New Vegas with a single gun. While we can do that, it's probably a suicide plan for them. Regardless, that gun is ours.
Vikki and Vance's Gun - Getting the Gun
The shack is quite small, so you probably notice the shack in back. If you want, you can sneak in and pick the lock on the safe and just steal it. You could probably also just kill both of them and call it a day. They do have unique headwear, so less moral characters may want to choose this path.
This actually isn't necessary though. If you feel like staying diplomatic, you can get the gun without firing a shot. Just start by talking to Sammy and learn a little bit about their plan. They really aren't ashamed of stealing the gun, so don't worry about revealing what you know.
Talk to Pauline afterwards for the opportunity for a Speech check. WIth 55 points in Speech you can call her bluff and elicit a very panicked response as they realize how stupid their plan is. You can then talk to Sammy and receive the gun as soon as he learns that the plan has been called off.
I believe that it can be done without the check, if you keep talking to the two of them. There should be an option to make them see the error of their ways through simple conversation. It's really up to you though.
Regardless of how you secure access to it, get the fancy submachine gun and enjoy it's ridiculous rate of fire and great condition.
