Hello Fellow gamer's, whats going down um in the beginning of the game Fallout 3 you are stuck in Vault 101. To get out you have to (well this is what I did) kill the overseer take his key go to where this guy name jonas I think it is his name he will be dead go into the overseer's office and exit Vault 101.
West of Rockbreaker's Last Gas, there is a giant hill. And if you look, there is a shack on top of that hill. If you make it up and go inside, you will find a cage in the corner with like 4 Radroaches inside, each with weird names. Ignore them or kill them, but you will find a cabinet (or something... I don't really remember) that is a Very Hard-Lockpick (FYI: 100 LP needed to get in) inside is the Victory Rifle, a special Sniper Rifle.
NOTE: In here there is also one of the Keller Transcripts (a holotape) which you need to get the MIRV Fatman. (There are 5 total)
Near the Deathclaw Sanctuary to the west, there is a chapel. Go here and when you walk towards the front, a guy will start shooting you with a sniper rifle, kill him and search his body to get the Reservist's Rifle. The Reservist's Rifle is a special Sniper Rifle, that has only 3 bullets in a clip, and I think it has a faster shooting rate.
NOTE: If you kill the guy, and his body doesn't fall down, you may have to stand on the Preacher's stand or podium in the corner, and jump and search his body in the air, because there is no other way to get to his sniping spot. ALSO there is some ammo and other things inside the chapel.
If you happen to fall off a tall bridge or something in which case you will almoat certainly die. Just before you hit the ground quickly save your game and then continue falling to your death then your game will load to the last save point which was about a metre off the ground and you fall from there and land perfectly safe
I beat the New DLC a couple hours after I bought it on Xbox 360
And one of the many things in the locked store room are the T-51b winterized armor( also there is a gauss rifle with somewhere around 60-70 rounds,and a bunch of other powerful weapons)
I didnt even have power armor training and I was able to wear it(and I was also able to wear outcast power armor too)
I havent stopped wearing it since and it's condition never goes down( I've been shot, fire ants have shot flame at me, and countless frag mines have been activated and it still has 100% CND
Ps. The gause rifle is one of the most powerfull weapons in the game( it's got a scope on it) also ther is a sword in there I suggest picking it up it is also powerfull( it's electrified )
In the town girdershade when the one ladu don't know whaty asks for you to find Nuka-Cola Quantum and you leave her house a man named Ronald will intercept you. Be nice to him and when he starts talking about getting with her act like you don't know what he is talking about and he will say your naive. Keep acting like you don't know what he is talking about and you should get a speech option for getting double or you can pick another if you have the black widow option wich is the one you want to pick(it talks about a threesome...) he will run off and try to get you nuka cola!
Hope this makes you luagh like it made me.
When you come across a Scavenger ask them to repair your equiptment. Repair what is needed then kill the scavenger and get your caps back. You can spend as much as you like and always get all of your caps back, you loose karma but who cares
Slo-Burn Flamer: in the crawler in adams air force base.... Through an energy wall in the main chamber with the computer that unlocks all the chambers
Precision gatling laser: in the armory in the crawler... Carried by the Armory Master
Composite recon helmet: on the body of the Armory Master
Rapid-Torch Flamer: at the factory in Adams Air Force Base
Tri-Beam Laser Rifle: go up the steps of the capitol building... You'll see one or two super mutant overlords... Kill them and take their weapon
Butch - Neutral Karma, in Rivet City after completing "Trouble on the Homefront."
Sergeant RI-3 Robot - Neutral Karma, bought off Tinker for 1000 caps, normally found near Robco Factory near Tenpenny Tower.
Fawkes - Good Karma, Must be saved in Vault 87
Dogmeat - Karma doesn't matter, In Scrapyard, northeast of Megaton, across the river.
Charon - Karma doesn't matter, is a Ghoul; his contract has to be bought in Ahzraukhal, in the Underworld.
Star Paladin Cross - Good Karma, found in Citadel.
Jericho - Evil Karma, lives in Megaton, needs 1000 caps for supplies, before being your follower.
Clover - Evil Karma, is a slave; can be bought in Paradise Falls.
If you blew up Megaton, well then good for you, thats what I did on my evil character. I was walking the Wastes, and this is the first time this has happened to me, but my dog, Dogmeat, started growling.
I turned around and go into V.A.T.S. Well and there are 3 Megaton Refugees marked as enemies. So this means some people made it out. But don't fear, they are only about as strong as vicious dogs.
This is fairly easy to get. If you side with the Mechanist during the Super Human Gambit Quest, and help him protect his facility from the ANTagonizer, and kill her and take the Mechanist her clothes, he will give you a special Laser Pistol called Protectron's Gaze.
Ok so first things first get the Contract Killer perk at level 14 (may work with Lawbringer, but not sure). Find a good person who when you kill them will go unconscious, not die. Some people I know of are Doctor Preston, Harkness, and Shrapnel all in Rivet City. I suggest Doctor Preston because he is usually in his lab where you can close the door and no one will see. Now make sure nobody see's and kill them a ton of times. Once you think you have killed them enough pickpocket them. They will have the amount of ears as the number of times you killed them. Now go to the Scrapyard and sell all the ears to Daniel Littlehorn. Can also be used for tons of bad karma. If you an evil person who will go unconscious (not sure if there are any) this will work with the Lawbringer perk.
As you walk around the wasteland you will come across outcast brother hood as they make patrols. Follow them [ it's a little slow but worth it ] they will come under attack and kill what is attacking them and you can go collect items from thier kills. Use the vats system on the outcasts and notice thier life bars are going down.
Keep following them untill one or all of them die and take thier armor and weapons. Thier armor can be used to repair brotherhood of steel armor also.
You can also use this tactic with the caravans and get thier items also.
Watch your karma level. If it becomes too evil a group of mercs called the regulators will come and try to kill you. I am being dead serious.
When you go to paradise falls walk around until you see a slaver wearing red he will talk to you hi will give you something keep talking to him and everytime you do he will keep giving you stuff
All you need is a high sneak skill "60+" the Chinese Stealth Suit."Broken Steel DLC." Or just use a stealth boy first off you need some other outfits in good condition and all you need to do is pickpocket Dr Lee and Dad "While everyone is at project purity" and place the outfits in their inventorys leave the room and come back they should be wearing what you gave them and their one of a kind outfits are for you to grab. Don't get caught! I don't think any of the others have any unique gear so don't waste your time.
To find the Alien Blaster, first go to minefield then head north to the power station, then follow the power lines till you see it knocked over. Near this point you should begin to get radiation (only +1 per second.) It is here where you should find a downed UFO, which near the cockpit is a dead alien, the Alien Blaster, and loads of Alien Blaster ammo. The Alien Blaster is the best weapon in the game.
If you wake up in the Citadel's infirmary (after activating Project Purity) without your follower's in sight, here's the solution: After speaking with Elder Lyons once you wake up, the only follower you may find with you is Dogmeat (if Dogmeat was with you in the first place). If you had a second follower with you that doesn't appear, exit to the Citadel courtyard, then re-enter Ring A, then Ring B and go to the infirmary. There you should find your other follower.
It is possible the follower didn't load properly, so leaving and returning may then load them correctly.
Note: I am not the only one to come across this problem. I have read reports of others having the same trouble and using the same method, so it should be a universal solution.
Medicine Bobblehead Location: In your dad's office in Vault 101. Can be obtained after speaking to your dad before you take the G.O.A.T. Exam. Or if you go into his office when you find out he left the Vault. No matter which of these times you choose it will be on his desk.
This is to activate the Chinese Invasion
Activate, in this order:
To get easy caps youre going to need to find a base named Fort Independence at the bottom of the wast land when you find it talk to the out cast guard at the front neer the door to Fort Independence. When you talk to him he will give you a task of finding tech like, energy weapons, plasma armor, enclave armor ,or power armor. Takeing stuff back will let you choose from stuff like 5.56 ammo, stimpack, rad-away, or grenades. When you get the choice choose grenades and after a while of trades go to trades in Rivit City and Megaton (if you choose not to blow it up) than your mony will acumilate. I,ve gotten up to 13,000 caps.
After getting alot of caps a fun fact shoot the truck when the out cast guy is neer it will kill him reget all the stuff now it will be fully fixed and sell for a higher price in sales.
P.S. Just killing him will result in bad karma and peeing of the outcast so just fallow the fun fact.
When you get to the map location in the top northwest corner of the map constintien base with all robots there go to the co qouters there is a doll in a safe for the vault tec achivment and if you keep going down and down you should get to a room where there is a security bot and a raider called tara kill them both and take her key and go to the locked door to the left the room shood be blue with neon lights all around there is a fatman,metal armor and the 5lb armor I'm pretty sure there was a computer you have to hack when you hack it you can get the armor out of the glass barrer and the helmet too hope I help you all out(its also my favorite armor)
From wii nut =]
This is the easiest way to kill them put frag mines in front of you and make sure they get your attention when they do make sure you are behind the frag mine and 8 outta 10 times one of it's legs would be crippled and it will be slowed down and then this is the time to shoot at with some assualt rifles. So I help this helped.
At Fort Independence, the Outcast Brotherhood fort, there is a Missile Launcher called the Miss Launcher. You find it in a storage room just off of the room where there are like 8 terminals, or the Research Room. The Miss Launcher lobs the Missile instead of shooting it straight at a target, making it a sort of Grenade Launcher.
