Killing him will give you Joe’s semi-automatic pistol. However, killing him before Joe Peterson causes Joe to join the Guard of Priwen, becoming a 27 Priwen Brawler.

Hint 1: After Learning Hint 2, talk to Joe Peterson and ask “Personal questions,” “Difficult relationship with your son?” You must then select “This is no place to raise a child.”

Hint 3: Once inside the Peterson’s home (by using Mesmerize on Harry), ask Harry “Your life in London?”, “Not happy to live in Whitechapel?” You’ll receive the hint, so your next response doesn’t matter.

Investigation: Drop the gun
