One of Fallout 4‘s many traveling vendors, Trashcan Carla, decimates an attacking raider in brutal hand-to-hand combat that is reminiscent of Ronda Rousey.
The world of Fallout 4 is full of interesting characters. From Diamond City’s resident sleuth Nick Valentine to the brutal companion Cait to the Minuteman Preston Garvey, the residents of the wasteland are brimming with personality. Many of them are quite lethal as well, though perhaps none are as dangerous as one merciless vendor.
On the surface, Trashcan Carla seems like any other vendor that can be found wandering around in Fallout 4. Players can speak with her to barter for goods when exploring near Bunker Hill, but beyond that, most players probably don’t give Trashcan Carla much thought. A recent video uploaded by the YouTube channel RandomNameHere, however, is proof that Trashcan Carla is not one to be taken lightly.
In the video, the player is innocently building a settlement, only to hear the sounds of a fight behind them. Upon investigating the noise, they happen upon a raider. Instinctively, they line up a shot using one of Fallout 4‘s many weapons, but then see that the vendor being attacked, Trashcan Carla, has the situation well under control.
With a furious roar, Trashcan Carla wallops the raider with a stiff punch to the face. With Carla too close for the raider to effectively use her gun, the raider takes a wild swing at the merchant. This proves to be a costly mistake, as Carla catches the raider’s arm and takes her attacker down with a swift judo throw that would make Ronda Rousey proud. Carla then takes it a step further than Rousey would by quickly snapping the raider’s neck.

Funny moments like this are a dime a dozen in Fallout 4, and luckily many have popped up on the web for all to enjoy. Besides Trashcan Carla’s quick fight, another video that comes to mind depicted a ghoul sacrificing himself for his friend, which was made even more comical thanks to the slow motion effect of the VATS combat system.
Trashcan Carla’s confrontation with an ill-fated raider may not be quite as heartwarming as the ghoul sacrifice or as epic as a battle between 30,000 Deathclaws and 300 Brotherhood of Steel members, but it’s still amusing to witness. It just goes to show that pretty much anything can happen in the vast wasteland Fallout 4, and hopefully players keep capturing amusing moments like this on video to share with the rest of the gaming world.
