Possible Spoilers

So I went to one of my settlements and found both Arts shooting at each other. From what I've seen, the real Art died, and the synth Art lived. I killed who I think is the synth Art and got a Synth Component.

Now that they're both dead, will they ever respawn?

    I don't think any special characters respawn.

  • @TimmyJim I don't think Art & Art are classified as special characters. They're listed under "random encounters," which, as the name suggests, happens randomly. Apparently, they can happen an unlimited amount of times, as well.

  • TBH, I've never even seen these characters even after 8+ days of playing the game.

  • @TimmyJim I've seen them a few times. I think over all my saves, I've amassed around 3-4 weeks of playtime.

From synth-Art's wikia page:

Art and "Art" will be a common recurring random encounter, even if both died.

So, yes, this event can happen even if one or both Arts died, and can keep happening an unlimited number of times.

    This is the most annoying reoccurring event in the game. I have killed both these idiots a dozen times and they keep coming back, distracting me with their gunfire.

  • They both scale directly to my level too, so they have an insane amount of HP (level 98)...
