Dean Hobbs Tips/Notes
- If you confront Hobbs with the claim that he and the others killed micky you can choose whether you believe he had nothing to do with it or tell him that he's lying. If you tell him he's lying he will tell the real story of how Micky lost his mind when the group was attacked which caused his unintended demise, Hobbs tells Warren that he can't tell JO that he let Micky down.
- You are still able to give Jo her weapon/scrap after you've confronted Hobbs, killing him in the process.
