race: Human
role: Special weapons trader
location: Around Modoc
appearances: Fallout 2
dialogue file: Ectrader.msg

Willy is a special weapons trader around Modoc. Unlike normal weapon dealers, Willie describes a weapon to the player, then allows the player to choose whether to buy the weapon upon waking, sight unseen. Among the weapons he sells is the rare Alien Blaster.


The next information is taken from The Nearly Ultimate Fallout 2 Guide by Per Jorner:

A trader and guards: Go to the top of the map directly north of Modoc and walk around that block and the area extending roughly two squares in all directions. Eventually you'll get this encounter. Turns out there's a trader named Willy who wants to sell something. Problem is, while talking to him you fall asleep, and must then choose if you want to buy a weapon without knowing exactly what it is. The solution? Use Steal on him before talking to him, or just hit the barter button in dialogue, and you'll see what the item is (he'll have 1-5 of them). What weapons he might be carrying depends on your level:

1+: Sharpened Spear, Spiked Knuckles

1-3: Knife, Rock, Spear

1-5: Throwing Knife, 10mm Pistol, Crowbar, Club, Brass Knuckles, Red Ryder BB Gun

1-10: Sharpened Pole

3-5: Combat Knife, Desert Eagle .44, Double-Barrel Shotgun, Hunting Rifle

6-10: 10mm SMG

6+: 14mm Pistol, Cattle Prod

8+: Ripper

10+: Power Fist

11-15: Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle

13+: Alien Blaster

15-20: Minigun

The script picks one of these weapons at random and then checks to see if you match the level requirement. If the Alien Blaster was picked you must also pass a Luck check or the result is re-rolled. The price Willy asks in dialogue is the weapon's usual barter value (excluding ammo) multiplied by (11-LK), meaning he'll ask $10,000 for the Blaster if you have Luck 10. You may be able to get a better price just by hitting barter. As an additional curiosity his male guards all carry 9mm Mauser, a rare weapon. This encounter will happen any number of times, and you can kill Willy and his guards and still get the same encounter again.


Willy's guards aren't actually allied to him if you encounter a group of critters attacking them (such as "A group of Manti slaughtering a caravan."). In fact, should Willy hit them with a stray shot, they'll turn on him!
