Help guard Enclave transaction

This is the second quest given to you by Louis Salvatore. He wants you to extort the bi-weekly payment of 1000 dollars from Renesco the Rocketman. Renesco is the proprietor of the pharmacy located on Commercial Row.

If you really want to, you can talk to Renesco and piss him off to the point that you just have to shoot him. It's unlikely Salvatore will be pleased with this, and since Renesco is the only medical merchant in New Reno, killing him isn't a good idea.

The best way to do the quest is to get him to tell you your name (if you haven't already), then keep saying the "I am a representative from Mr. Salvatore" line, and when he finally tells you to think of something quick, you tell him you'll pay his tribute to Mr. Salvatore in exchange for a "discount" on his goods. This makes the price for all Renesco's goods go to zero for that transaction only. Thus, you can buy his entire inventory - likely worth much than 1000 dollars - for a single coin.

Return to Mr. Salvatore and give him the correct payment of 1000 dollars. Assuming the player has been courteous, this opens up Salvatore's final quest: Help guard Enclave transaction.


Occasionally, Renesco's inventory will not be reduced to free stuff when undergoing the "transaction". He will charge full price for all items.
