Mister Gutsy (Fallout: New Vegas)

FO76 publicteam xpd.pngFor an overview of the topic, see Mister Gutsy.

Another glorious day in this man's army!

The Mister Gutsy is a variant of robot found in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. It is the military model of the much more common civilian Mister Handy model.

Background

A dedicated combat variant of their civilian Mister Handy, the Mister Gutsy series was developed by General Atomics International.[1][2] It was commissioned by the United States Army before the Great War,[3] with units utilized during Battle of Anchorage in January 2077. It is equipped weapons such as 10mm submachine guns, .44 pistols, plasma weapons and flamethrowers.[4]

General Atomics programmed the robots to be effective soldiers, but the definitions utilized were vague, causing issues with simulated personality units.[5] The robot has the ability to refuse orders issued by commanders they deemed incompetent or those under court martial.[6][7] Units were designated with "ABC" and "MGZ" serial numbers and different variants included Mister, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Major, and Colonel. A field medic model was also created, which was incapable of combat and an encyclopedic knowledge of medical procedures, particularly surgery.[8][Pub 1]

Gameplay

They cannot use both weapons simultaneously and will always switch to their flamer when their target is in range. Nearby explosions or anything crippling its thruster can temporarily knock it out of the air, giving the player time to strike it down. Mister Gutsies are more resistant to bullets than other robots.

Prototype

Mister Gutsy.png

Salvaged by prospectors and reprogrammed for use by private individuals, such as the one located in a house in Nipton. This Mister Gutsy has already claimed the life of a legionary, and is immediately hostile when entering the house. According to notes on a terminal in the same house, the resident at that time had repaired the robot in order to impress any potential new women in town. Another prototype may be found inside the solar collection tower at HELIOS One at lower levels.

"Sergeant RL-3" to be precise, the pride of General Atomics International. Comes complete with a simulated personality unit, so he's good protection and good company, too! And all yours for just 1000 caps."
    The Lone Wanderer: "Simulated personality? Sounds like trouble."
    Tinker Joe: "To tell the truth, it is a little trouble. But he can't help the way he got built. General Atomics programmed the Mister Gutsy to be a good soldier, but their definitions were a bit vague. So a lot of units had... issues. So we got a gung-ho, robotic soldier that's picky about the company he keeps. But he seems to like you, so it'll be fine."

Fallout 3 Official Game Guide/Wasteland Census p. 95: "Sawbones: This is a modified Mister Gutsy with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of surgery, but it lacks the necessary medical subsystem knowledge to carry out operations without causing inadvertent harm to the patient. Recently, Sawbones has been exhibiting some worrying behavior, including having a penchant for poetry."
