Economics of Violence

location: Paradise Falls
given by: Pronto
reward: better store inventory at Lock and Load
20% shop discount

Economics of Violence refers to an unmarked quest in Fallout 3.

Pronto in Paradise Falls complains about having no good items to sell as all he gets from the other slavers is leftover junk. If you offer to help him out he will ask you to bring him 20 Chinese Assault Rifles.

Typical store items before and after giving Pronto the rifles

Pronto's shop will have a better inventory and he will also get a bit more cash (around 400 instead of around 150).

You will also receive a "business partner" discount of 20%.


  • If you have begun this quest and wish to complete it, do not become hostile with anyone in Paradise Falls. While the doctor will still offer services, Pronto does become hostile towards you, making it impossible to complete the quest.
  • Pronto does not care about the condition of the rifles, so it is advised to resist wasting caps on rifles or repairs. Because of this, however, a good way to get rifles is to shoot them out of the hands of those carrying them.
  • After you have given him the 20 Chinese Assault Rifles, you have to wait at least 24 hours before his inventory improves.
  • Pronto will not accept the Xuanlong Assault Rifle, so players using the weapon needn't worry about accidentally giving it away.


Once you give him 20 rifles, if you talk to him about his inventory again and agree to get rifles for him, his inventory could revert to the previous version. So don't talk to him about his inventory once you have given him the rifles.
