According to the Fallout Wiki, I need 5 "points" to get him to talk about Bittersprings and start his quest.


When torturing the captured POW Silus at Camp McCarran, if he dies during the torture: +1.
During the mission 'I Put a Spell on You', if you kill the spy: +1, if you disarm the monorail bomb: +1.
Killing the Legion leader: +2.
During the side quest Booted, rescuing the hostaged Powder Gangers: +2
When first arriving in Nipton, killing Vulpes Inculta: +1
During the side quest Back in Your Own Backyard, if you kill the hostages: +1. If you save them: +2.
During the side quest Eye for an Eye, eradicate the Legion for: +2.
After killing Aurelius of Phoenix in Cottonwood Cove.


I should have nine points total out of all of those. Why won't he talk to me about the damn quest?

I'd like to know this, too.

Also, if I did some of this before I got Boone (like wipe out Novac, rescue the captives, etc) do I still get the points with Boone?

Open your action wheel and choose "talk to" through dialogue checks you can get hm to talk about it

I was thinking the same thing. Two of these I did before Boone was following me, but I never started either of the quests for them. I just killed a bunch of Legion troops everywhere I found them.

Later when I had Boone I talked to the guys to start (and finish) the quest at the same time.

Even if they don't count, I should have 5 or 6 points.

I would like to know this too...specifically...

1. do you get the points if Boone isn't with you / before he's a companion?
2. Do you have to talk to him to make this progress or will he ever just speak up on his own?

I kind of want to leave him behind cause he breaks the game, but I want to make sure to trigger the quest.

you have to enter into the dialogue with him through the companion wheel , choose the talk to option bottom right on the wheel i think

I think you also need to actually talk to someone else about Bitter Springs before you can say something like "What do you know about Bitter Springs?" to Boone.

Thanks. Anyone know if you have to keep him with you to get those "points" so he'll speak up? I'm sick of him one-upping me as a sniper. I'm the effing hero here.

Like who? I went to Bittersprings and talked to some people but couldn't get anything out of Boone.
