Am I selling? Yeah. Am I selling to you? No. Sorry to hurt your feelings, but you're small time. Move along.

Alexander is an arms dealer at the 188 Trading Post in Fallout: New Vegas.


Alexander is a salesman for the Gun Runners and appears beneath the 188 Trading Post overpass in the Mojave Wasteland. He also makes trips to Camp McCarran and the Hoover Dam once or twice a week, to make sales and to take gun and ammunition orders.[1]

He is usually located at the trading post, profiting from the recent increase in caravan traffic due to the closure of I-15, checking stock and directing shipment deliveries.[2] He shares that he makes enough from trading to visit the Strip monthly while also saving money.[3]

  1. Alexander: "I'm a salesman. I swing through McCarran and the dam once a week or so to take orders. But lately I spend most of my time in this piss heap."
    (Alexander (Fallout: New Vegas)/Dialogue)
  2. Alexander: "Ever since the 15 shut down, all caravans come through here - right to me. I check the stock and direct deliveries onward to meet orders."
    (Alexander (Fallout: New Vegas)/Dialogue)
  3. Alexander: "Sure, it stinks to hang out here, but it won't be forever. Plus I can afford a monthly bender on the Strip and still build up my nest egg."
