When your character gains access to the main strip go to the Lucky 38 casino and search for Victor who will you that Mr House wants to meet you. Follow Victor inside the Lucky 38 casino and go up the elevator and speak to Mr House (giant television face that resembles Howard Hughes).

Unlimited Caps Glitch

When you are in Guardian Peak there will be an NCR soldier in a cave who is wounded. If you help him to the cave entrance and continually ask for his rifle he will give it to you along with some ammunition. This is best done after earning the perk that allows for over encumbered fast travel.

Infinite Caps (Pre-Patch)

Go to the town of Primm and complete the 'My Kind Of Town' quest by getting the town a sheriff or the NCR's troops. When you complete the quest the 'Vikki and Vance Casino' will become open after 3-7 game days. Exchange some Caps for some of the casino's chips and play Blackjack there and 'Save' (don't use auto-save) before every hand so you can just load the game if you lose. You can trade in your chips for caps at the cash register and the NPC will give you the equivalent in caps but will not take away your chips. This trick can be done as many times as you desire.


To steal something without getting caught use 'Sneak' to make sure that you are hidden from the owners line of sight and then use the 'Grab' function to drag the item around a corner. You will still lose karma but they will not try to kill you.

Set Fire/Kill Enemies without using Ammo

Set Fire/Kill Enemies without using Ammo

This can be done by equipping the Anti-Materiel Rifle and loading it with Incendiary rounds. If you now enter V.A.T.S. on any target and then exit V.A.T.S. without shooting them whatever you aimed at will now be on fire and you will have used no ammo.

Gain Higher Quality Item

To get a higher quality item than what you paid for make sure the vendor has two of the same items but different quality and buy the cheaper quality item of the two. When you do this you will gain the higher quality item instead.

Cheat: Kill Without Gaining Infamy

You need an anti-material rifle with incendiary ammo for this cheat. Equip your rifle and change the ammo type to incendiary. Use VATS on a target and quit the VATS after targeting. Now the target is on fire without you gaining infamy or agroing anyone. You may use this trick several times on stronger targets. Note: This cheat worked before later updates; it may be patched.

Infinate XP

Start the "Wang Dang Atomic Tango" quest gotten from James Garret in Freeside. Go to the Old Mormon Fort then tell Beatrix about the job. Use the speech check or this wont work. You can keep doing this and get XP every time.

I got from 13 to about 18 in less than 30 minuites.
