I just started playing UB a few days ago, and just captured Varrez. I was wondering if it is ok to kill Betty and/or Raul for supplies and how it affects the course of the game. Thanks in advance.

Just kill Raul (after selling to him your Calico pistol and other crappy guns and that blasted Hand Mortar to him) but be warned: Raul is a tricky man, and if you don't kill him immediatly he'll blast himself destroying all the guns he have to sell (including that Barret!)

A good CAWS burst fire at (a real) short distance with buckshot ammo should do the job nicely Wink

Now that Raul is dead you'll need Biggins, Gus or any explosive expert with pretty high LVL to spot and disarm Raul's traps, witch are VERY hard to detect and worst, the stuff is boobytraped individually (nice, huh?) after following this instructions you'll have lots of free stuff (including the Barret and the Hand Mortar Wink )

Don't kill Betty, she'll be your main source of money in Tracona (pretty scarce in Tracona, by the way), since she'll buy almost anything, except weapons and ammo (Hey, her shop is not an american convenience shop! :innocent: )

Oh ya, don't expect too much money from her if you want to get rid of Flo watches and MERC umbrellas... Wink

Also, Raul is like Keith in JA2, he has little money to spend, and it takes some days to Raul get a new cash supply, so that's another reason for killing him (but don't forget the traps!)

I never really needed the money from Betty, but the Medikits I got (after taking care of the bloodcats, so that she would mysteriously have more money) really came in handy. I am not suggesting anything here, but...

Will Barry be able to disarm the traps? He has 95 Explosives and the electronics skill, but is only Lvl 4. I also have Hitman, he is Lvl 6, but no electronics and only 41 Explosives.
But I might also be able to raise their Explosives by "practicing" w/ mines. Uh Oh

Go ahead and give it a shot! Raul, I mean. Buckshot burst from CAWS mostly does the trick. Then try to make Barry pick the stuff up. If he says something about stuff being booby-trapped, his level is high enough.

I don't know what you people have against Raul. I sold him stuff amounting to around 10,000$ in one day and he never ran out of money. You can get the most money from selling rifles to him, as opposed to Betty who gives you pittence for junk. Plus, Raul's initial selection only increases, and he offers sniper scopes, laser sights and bipods on a daily basis. He's the most convinient place to get rare ammo like 4.6mm and 5.7mm, not to mention HP ammo (for use against the bloodcats) or 9mm and .45 AP ammo for your SMGs (if you use them). Lastly, he's the ONLY place to find ammo for your precious Barret M82A2 and VAL sniper rifles. His attitude, I think, makes him more interesting as a character.

I've tried killing Raul once and the payoff was way too low compared to what I get when I keep him around. Not to mention its bloody annoying having to disarm every single item he drops. The maxed-out armor he drops is just about the only decent thing you get from killing him.

Stop the Raul-bashing! If anyone, bash Betty; she could really use a good bashing.

EDIT: Okay, he did eventually ran out of money. But I still argue that he's more usful alive.

LOL,how can someone say that gets more money from Betty? Raul pays well for weapons,ammo,attachments,armor,etc. Betty pays less than Raul for armors.She's crappy.
