This article will cover the Fallout New Vegas Easter Egg Granny Gang. Easter Eggs are locations, events or other game aspects that reference to other well known culture icons. The Granny Gang is a Trio of armed old ladies with pink floral dresses and rolling pins, that show up to beat the apple pie out of you.
How to get the encounter in Fallout New Vegas:
First off you will need to have chosen the Wild Wasteland perk that unlocks all of the wackier Easter eggs in Fallout New Vegas. Once you reach freeside, there will be a random chance for the gang of grannies to ambush you. This event is most likely to happen upon exiting the Cerulean Robotics facility.

The 3 old ladies run around the side of the building upon your reentry to freeside, led by Malefic Maud, who approaches you with a kind message. “Look what we have here, ladies, another unsuspecting ponce.” Maud herself pulls out a switchblade while her companions Irate Ida and Rancorous Ruth attack with their rolling pins. They have no armor, so they pose little lethality unless you happen to be stripped of armor and weapons at the time.
The Granny Gang is a nod to Monty Python’s classic skit Hell’s Grannies, in which an quiet town is preyed upon by roving gangs of Grannies. These old ladies beat up on young fit men, spray graffiti like “Make Tea Not Love!” and are often addicted to crotchet. Watch the original skit here. Just be glad there aren’t any vicious keep left signs to worry about.
