Just for fun, and because I am that kind of guy, I tried saving Private Dobbs, the one who you can get to show up in the 4th level of the army base, from dying. It seems to me that his death is triggered by getting to the corner of the hallway outside of the room that he shows up in. So I tried to prevent him from getting to that corner. Well, first I tried boosting him up with psycho and buffout, hoping that this would prevent damage, but this had no effect, he still imploded. Next I tried my awesome hand to hand skills, and easily disabled both of his legs. But he was still able to slowly move to the hallway. I remained in combat mode since I had attacked him and wasn't able to run all the way out of the level before he reached the hallway. I almost made it to the elevator on time, but no nice. I also tried knocking him unconscious, but he woke up before I could get out of the level. I didn't try both knocking him unconscious, and crippling both legs; not sure if that would have bought me enough time to get out. My assumption is that if you can make it out of the level before he gets to the hallway corner, he'll live. I don't know what would happen when you returned to the level, if he'd start running to the hallway again or if he'd have 'forgotten' that that's what he was trying to do. Probably you can play tricks with the force field and somehow hold him in his room, but I'm not sure how that would work. Anyone successfully save Private Dobbs from his unfortunate fate? if so, how?
