Fallout 3 Walkthrough and Guide

Enter 2277.  Welcome to Fallout 3, a game that only one word can describe. Massive.  This guide aims for you to get a fuller experience.

The Walkthrough itself is as spoiler free as it can be.  Unless something has to be described - and there is no other way around - you won't have anything story related spoiled for you when reading this guide.

Fallout 3 is a great game, and there aren't many alike.  If you've enjoyed it, be sure to check out Deus Ex.  It's one of those great games you may have never played.  Now, let's get down to business.

This guide has now been updated to include the following DLC (downloadable content) guides:

Operation Anchorage

Broken Steel

The Pitt

Mothership Zeta

Point Lookout

I found bodies of Walter and Lucy West lying on the ground in Megaton (probably some sort of bug). Is there some way to bring them back to life ?

i've been playing fallout for a year now and have beaten the game 7 or more times. I know the answer to the last few questions,if they said it was near the ham radio,than their saying that the switch is.the BoS have bases everywhere,especially in the broken steel DLC,but the main base is called The Citidel,somewhere in the first part of can only go back to vault 101 during a quest,but i've heard rumors of a PC mod,but otherwise theres no other way.I don't know what the ideal weapon for small guns is,but I highly recommend the 10MM Pistol.I know theres two ways:the good and the evil way,I alway's chose the evil way exept for once,you have to go to the abandoned house and enter the right order of the object's in the house,I forgot the order along time ago,but I do know it will start a Chinese Invasion and kill everyone there,I don't know why it's good karma,but o'well.No,there is no possible way to makeyour gun's aim,only if you can mod on the PC.Those are allthe answer's I can deliver for now.If you need any help my xbox 360 gamertag is "Buckets8118stek".

Hey people! Dandy here and if you have any problems, as I can see a lot of people here have, just message me or whatever you can do, (I'm new to this website). I have everything and know most things about fallout 3 such as rare weapons, alien weapons, random encounters, Main story-line, Side-quests, spawn farming, follower glitching to have 10 companions, Ingot reward items and well just about everything.

Just ask me for help on here and if your on the XBOX add my GT 'DandyTheWaffle' and message me, i'll be glad to help in any way I can :D

ok first off dogmeat has probably not yet arrived at vault 101 because remember characters in the game travel in real time so he has to walk across the entire wasteland to get there which could take a while, the password for the door is a 4 digit code that is obtained through listening to all 5 of the keller family tapes which are scattered across the wasteland.

Can anyone tell me the source, location of or reason for the beacon/peeping like sound i hear/get when i'm around the front (Mall) side of the Capitol Building? I'm max'd in levels and i think it's related to a tape/note i picked up. I've been thru the Capitol Bldg. many times now and it's a loose end i can't solve.

the replicated man is harkness in rivet city, and pinkerton is in the broken part of the ship, you have to swim underwater to get to the door- he'll give you the info on harkness, and also give you extra info for the wasteland survival guide part of finding history on rivet city.
