Fallout Wiki
(Redirected from Dobbs)

I heard the doctors say I was dead and then they threw my body onto a pile of other bodies.

Private Dobbs is a Private First Class in the U.S. Army found preserved at Sierra Army Depot in Fallout 2.


Described as being dressed in standard military combat armor,[1] Dobbs had the rank of Private First Class in the U.S. Army.[2] He states that he was in a military battle with gunfire, explosions and people dying, but that he had to keep fighting.[3] After a blinding flash, he recalls seeing himself from above and hearing doctors state that he was dead, promptly throwing him onto a pile of dead bodies.[4]

Afterwards, he states that "some men" came by and took his body of a laboratory, where they regenerated his body by submerging it in an experimental Biomed Gel regeneration tank at the Sierra Army Depot.[5][6]


Dobbs can be released from his Biomed Gel tank by using the Bio Storage Control Terminal located on Level 4 of the Sierra Army Depot. After speaking to him, Dobbs will run away before gooifying into a puddle. Inspecting his remains reveals that he had Post-Cryogenic Syndrome.[7]
