At the start of the Alice Garden pod raid, Arie van Bruggen asks you for a gun to defend himself. Since I only had my 3 tricked-out weapons of choice at the time, I declined.

In response, he bid me a merry "fuck you" and climbed into his pod, so I defended it by killing everyone in the room.

Is he plot-dead anyway? And if so, what hopefully not unique rewards am I missing?

Possible spoilers:

I gave him a machine pistol and he ran off and later in the game he gave me 2000 credits as a "Thank You"

So at most I think that's all you're missing. Personally I had over 30,000 credits by this point and it didn't really matter.

A friend of mine said Windmill died, when didn't give him a weapon.

I did the following:

Instead of giving him a trciked out weapon, reload your quicksave and then go down and buy a gun from a merchant. The one in Alice Pod Gardens has a Combat Rifle as the cheapest weapon (1250 credits vs the 2000 you get from doing it), but that ofc requires you don't have a Combat Rifle already, otherwise dump it and buy it and pick up your tricked out combat file when the combat starts.

Or just grab a non-upgraded weapon from the pods. There is at least an SMG around. – Darien Sep 8 '11 at 20:31
Pod 544 has a 10mm that works fine. – Konerak Feb 11 '12 at 12:33
The arms dealer in Alice Garden Pods also sells a revolver, which is cheaper than the combat rifle and still works. – Brian Gordon Jun 16 '14 at 1:54

Give a weapon to him; if you do not, he will climb in his pod and hide. Either way he will survive. You will get a monetary reward if you give a weapon to him.
