Talon Company Mercs are members of Talon Company, an exceptionally brutal and amoral faction of mercenaries and hit-men. Unlike other factions, they are nearly exclusively male.

Contents

Operations in the Capital Wasteland

If the player has good karma, a bounty will be placed on his or her head and Talon Company Mercs will periodically attempt to collect. They may also be contracted by Mr. Burke if the player chooses to disarm the bomb in Megaton. However, when sent by Mr. Burke, their V.A.T.S. caption changes to "Hitman." Talon Company search parties typically operate in 3-man squads when patrolling the wastes looking for the player character.

Three Dog mentions that Talon Company mercs pick up jobs other mercenary companies won't do. Reilly of Reilly's Rangers notes her particular dislike of Talon Company, recalling a job they did which involved the killing of women and children, and commenting that they give all mercenaries a bad name. If the player converses with her rudely she will mention that the player sounds like a Talon Company Merc.

Fort Bannister seems to be their main base of operations, being that it is exclusively populated by Talon Mercenaries, (not counting guard dogs) and contains an even larger underground base crawling with more high level mercs. Bannister also happens to be the dwelling of Talon's ridiculously powerful commander, Jabsco.

Besides the fixed locations and roving packs of bounty hunters, there is a rare random encounter in which the player can encounter a group of Talon Company Mercs, even if they have never had good Karma. Despite not having a contract to kill the player, they are just as hostile towards him/her as those that do.

Notes

  • Unlike with The Regulators, to date, no way is known to actually join Talon company, no matter how low the player's karma is.
  • You can however, make Talon Company Mercs friendly towards you, via the Mesmetron. If you shoot it at them, then equip a slave collar, you can then remove it then they should stop shooting at you.
  • One of the few rare female Talon Company Mercs can be found on a catwalk in the first level of the Chryslus Building. However, she is already dead.
  • On the DLC Broken Steel, a water carrying Water Brahmin and two dead Brotherhood of steel can be found south of the Citadel. When approached a large ambush of Talon Company Mercs appear. Some armed with Heavy weapons likes flamers and further south is what appear to be a Talon Company outpost.
  • When you first encounter them and your karma is good and above, there's an unrepeatable dialog in which they explain you can't go around and be a "do gooder". which ever option you choose in the dialog, they will attack eventually.
  • It is possible that Talon Company Mercs are cannibals, as they sometimes say "I want this one's head on a fucking plate!" during combat. However, this is unlikely as having someone's head on a plate can refer to having proof of their death.
  • Talon Company Mercs often appear after fast traveling.
