Shrapnel is a character that can be found in Rivet City, and he is one of the co-owners of Flak 'N Shrapnel's, a weapon and Ammunition dealer.

Shrapnel used to be a Raider, until he settled down. Since Flak is confirmed to be a homosexual, Shrapnel may be in a relationship with him.

Unlike Flak, Shrapnel is an essential character, and cannot be killed.

[edit] Bugs

  • If Flak is slaved as part of the Strictly Business quest, Shrapnel may go outside looking for him, wandering the Wasteland. He can be found in the wasteland, and still sell you items and goods. It's been confirmed that when he does get to Paradise Falls, he does not save Flak and instead just stands beside him. He could wander as far as Fort Bannister.

It's been confirmed by Bethesda that the glitch is caused by a "sleep together" programming, that causes two NPC's to group together at night in the same bed. Because Flak is somewhere else, Shrapnel will go out and follow him.

This does not happen if Flak is killed.

  • He carries a new weapon every single time you fight him
