I had ED-E and Cass as my companions for a while, but I decided to go solo so I left them waiting in my home. After some days they returned to their respective origin places.

I lost the perk provided by ED-E so I decided to recruit it again, but when I went to John Nash's store it turned hostile and attacked everyone in the room. I tried to let it unconscious by shooting but I killed it instead, hence failing it's related mission.

I've read around the Internet about this behavior, it happens if you left ED-E "abandoned" for too long. But I can't find a way to make it join me again and not being hostile. Any help is appreciated.

    Is it possible to go back to an old save game file? Try that and bring here to the store to see what happens. Oct 24, 2017 at 12:25
  • Sorry, I do have a save before leaving it behind, but I've done A LOT of quests now and I don't feel like re-playing a 30% of the game again. Any other solution?

  • Does it matter he killed everyone? Is he attacking you? If he's not, let the other guys die and talk to him normally.

  • @Nelson ED-E gets to kill John Nash and then attacks me

If it is bugged there are a variety of console commands you can use to fix it:

completequest [QuestID]

addtofaction 1b2a4 0

If you use the addtofaction command on ED-E you then need to use:


It will stop him from attacking.

The top command can be used to instantly complete the quest, provided you find its ID (list of ID's here:http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Fallout:_New_Vegas_quests) this is the ID for ED-E my love 001572e8 and I believe that is the quest you want.

The command below (addtofaction 1b2a4 0) will add ED-E to the players faction and make him friendly, but only stopcombat will stop him from attacking if he starts before you enter the command.
