Blackjack the super mutant is one of the escaped prisoners from the Tibbets prison. He's normally very easy-going and friendly.

He has barricaded himself inside a cave down in the canyon, near Mesa Verde. He had been running from Alexandra, who'd been on his trail for days, and he didn't realize the canyon didn't go any further. He claims to have a minigun and hopes Alexandra will eventually give up and go away.

Alexandra has set a small camp behind a 3-foot high wall of rocks. She caught sight of Blackjack several days ago and chased him here. Blackjack is worthless to her dead, but she doesn't have the faintest idea how to get him out of the cave without facing his minigun. She's hoping she can starve him out, but with his super mutant endurance, that doesn't seem too likely. His "minigun" is actually just a bunch of big sticks and pipes tied together in a bundle and smeared with charcoal to dye them black. He's also got a big pack of supplies, so he'll be able to hang out in the cave for quite some time.

Quotes

  • "Of COURSE I have a minigun! I'm a super mutant. We always carry big, powerful weapons. So, uh, don't come any closer!"

Inconsistencies

It is unknown why and how Blackjack ended up being a prisoner at Tibbets, as FEV should give him immunity to the New Plague.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Blackjacks are a group of members' only melee weapons. They are used in the Thieving skill to lure/knock-out certain NPCs located in Pollnivneach. There are three types of blackjack: ordinary, offensive (also known as attack), and defensive. Although the blackjack types are functionally the same and can all be used to lure/knock-out specific NPCs, they each provide different combat bonuses. Ordinary blackjacks provide a small bonus to strength, while offensive and defensive raise both strength and their respective crush types. There are no level requirements for wielding blackjacks.

A player using a blackjack to knock out a Menaphite Thug.
To obtain blackjacks the player must first complete the blackjack section of the Rogue Trader minigame. Once this is completed, the player can either buy ordinary/offensive blackjack or ordinary/defensive ones from Ali Morrisane and, if they want to switch types, can talk to the blackjack seller in Pollnivneach. They can also buy ordinary blackjacks from the trader near the kebab shop. When used in combat there is a slight chance of stunning the victim.

To use the blackjacks the player must first have completed the Feud quest and have the necessary Thieving level to pickpocket either Villagers, Bandits or Menaphite thugs. Once the requirements are met and the player is wielding a blackjack he/she selects 'Lure' on the right-click menu. When away from other NPCs the player should choose 'Knock-out', though there is always a chance they will fail to knock-out the NPC. A successful knockout will reward the player with a small amount of Thieving experience. The player can then safely pickpocket the unconscious NPC.

Strategies

Healing

Bandits and Menaphites cause damage for every failure, which can quickly add up. There is no bank in Pollnivneach, still there are a few options. You can boost your hitpoint regeneration rate with items, familiars, and Rapid Heal and this will undoubtedly help reduce the frequency you need to eat. There is a kebab store in Pollnivneach which sells Kebabs and Super kebabs at a cheap price, however both are somewhat unreliable and buying from the shop is a slow process. You may also talk to Ali the Barman and purchase wine from him for very cheap prices. There is also a General store you can use to unnote food that you brought, which is the quickest option for obtaining food. Or you can simply use the Magic carpet to return to a bank and withdraw food. Either way the money from pickpocketing will easily cover all expenses. If you have got a ring of slaying, then it should be easy for you. Just teleport to Sumona in Pollnivneach with it. And when you need to restock on food, you can just use a teleport such as an amulet of glory, a ring of duelling or a teletab.

Negating the Failure

When you fail to knock-out a victim, you will be attacked. If one was to quickly click pickpocket, the victim will negate the failure and will not attack. This is a great method to use when you're running out of food. Of course there is a failure to pickpocket as well, which causes the victim to take off 5 hit-points. For this reason, a minimum of at least 10hp is recommended before trying to knock out the victim.

'Double Double Hit'

The 'Double Double Hit' is a technique used in Blackjacking. It is achieved when a Bandit/Menaphite Thug has been knocked-out, been pick-pocketed twice and then knocked out. After knocking the victim out, one should instantly right click the victim and pickpocket them, do this twice quickly. Then Knock them out again as soon as you hear the pickpocket confirmation sound. The Victim should lay on the ground still, allowing you to do an infinite 'Double Double Hit' (Until the victim accuses you of pickpocketing him)

Where to train

The best place to train with blackjacks is always in a building, with a door and no other NPC. This is so your victim cannot escape to areas you are unable to knock him out, and the less space he has to travel the faster the process will be. Ali the Dyer's tent is a great place for Bandits, as it is small and has a ladder to escape the Bandit if he becomes aggressive.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Blackjack is a Decepticon Micromaster from the Generation One continuity family.
"Hit me!"

Blackjack leads the rambunctious Sports Car Patrol not by being the strongest, but by being the cleverest. He always has a plan to extract his hide from a sticky situation...oh, and his teammates too, time permitting. He calculates the odds before going in and always has an ace up his sleeve just in case.

French name (Canada): Assommeur

Fiction

Marvel comics continuity

Note: Events from the UK-only comic stories are in italics.

After studying the captive Autobot Battle Patrol, Thunderwing and his scientists managed to replicate Emirate Xaaron's Micromaster process and create a new era of Decepticon Micromasters, including Blackjack and his cohorts. A Small War!

While traveling solo in the Dead End, Blackjack was jumped by two Autobots, when a disorientated and damaged Megatron stumbled upon them. Blackjack crying out his name and the sight of the Autobrand returned Megatron to his senses, and he blasted the Micromasters' attackers. The Sports Car Patrol became Megatron's first recruits in his plans to rebuild his power base on Cybertron and gain revenge against Decepticon and Autobot alike on Earth. The Resurrection Gambit! Using the trans-time dimensional portal, the patrol infiltrated the Ark, and Blackjack attempted to destabilize Ratchet mentally by remote-controlling the remains of the deactivated Autobots on which the medic was working. When this failed, Blackjack attempted Plan B, coming out into the open with fake Autobot insignia and trying convince Ratchet into believing they were Autobots on their way back to Cybertron, leading him not to advanced medical equipment but into Megatron's clutches. Back from the Dead!

While his team traveled back to Cybertron, Blackjack stayed behind to dispatch the skeleton crew aboard the Ark and rig explosives to blow it up. The Resurrection Gambit! He didn't do a good enough job of blasting the crew, as Kup reactivated and startled him, causing the Micromaster to drop the triggering mechanism for the explosives, starting the countdown. All the Familiar Faces! While Kup and the others attempted to disable the bombs, Blackjack frantically insisted that they couldn't be disabled and that their best course of action was to abandon ship. Ratchet, however, used the trans-time dimensional portal to transport the explosives to Megatron's base on Cybertron, saving the Ark and Blackjack. Skin Deep

Note: The Sports Car Patrol was never seen again, so there is no indication if Blackjack was ever returned to Decepticons.

Dreamwave comics continuity

A little over four million years ago, Blackjack was one of many new Micromaster Transformers created by the Autobots and Decepticons in a joint venture to bolster their forces. Recruited as a Decepticon, Blackjack still seemed rather easygoing and cordial with the Autobot Micros, at least while hanging out in Little Iacon. He was planning to race with Roadhandler for championship of the Micros, but had no problem putting their friendly competition on hold so that Road Handler could 'school the load-mouthed Big Daddy on the "rules of the road". He even refereed the race for the two Autobots, although the fracas that followed with the guzzlers probably means he didn't get the chance to race Road Handler himself. The Gray Race

IDW comics continuity

Blackjack and the Sports Car Patrol are highly advanced warriors apparently in the service of the Dead Universe. They ran afoul of Nightbeat on Gorlam Prime while protecting the "hole in the world". Blackjack and his compatriots captured the inquisitive Autobot and subjected him to an unknown procedure before letting him go. Spotlight: Nightbeat
