How to find Lindsay’s Teddy Bear in the “Bear Necessities” unmarked quest in Fallout: New Vegas

Lindsay is a girl at the Nellis Air Force Base that lost her teddy bear. The teddy bear can be found in the aircraft hangar between several metal crates.

Quick tips before you start the unmarked quest:

  • The bear can be picked up before the quest starts. The teddy bear can be picked up even before you ever speak to Lindsay, potentially saving time if you visit the hangar to speak to any of the NPCs there before you interact with Lindsay.
  • Nets Boomer reputation. Giving the bear back to Lindsay gives the player some positive Boomer reputation. This is a very simple way of getting your reputation up during the “Volare!” quest, which requires you to get a high reputation with the Boomers to make progress.

Speaking to Lindsay

Lindsay is usually found inside the Nellis Schoolhouse. If she’s not there, simply wait for a few hours.

Once you find her, speak to her. She will ask you to find her teddy bear. Tell her that you’ll look for it.

Once inside, look for a large stack of metal boxes just past the entrance to the hangar. The teddy bear will be behind them.

Once you found the teddy bear, go back to Lindsay.

Returning to Lindsay

Once you speak to Lindsay, make sure that you give her the teddy bear back, rather than lie to her and say that it’s gone, as that will decrease your Boomer reputation, as well as your Karma.
