Hacking Terminals and Lockpicking

When hacking a terminal there are groups of symbols highlighted by these: [] or {}. These groups of symbols will either be dud passwords or reset the number of tries you have to guess the password but not reset the password itself. Also after your third fail you can just exit the terminal and retry but this does reset the password. Or you could just save before hacking then when you fail just reload. Also I have found more often than not that the password on the �very easy� terminals is the first word on the left column. I don�t know if it�s the same for �easy� terminals but feel free to try, just don�t blame me if it�s wrong. I haven�t failed a hacking yet thanks to these methods.

Also for lockpicking, when the bobby pin is close to breaking you can just exit and retry the �m..

Unlimited Big Weapons book

There happens to be a raider in the Bethesda Ruins who always has a book that will get your big weapons skill up everytime the person respawns. Just go the Bethesda Ruins and go to the western building. Once inside, kill all the raiders and go to the door that will lead you to a bridge to get to the eastern building. Go inside and the first raider you see with a flamethrower will have the Big Gun's skill book. Kill the raider and get the skill book off of his corpse.

Top Five Places to Lanch a Mini-Nuke

1. Megaton

Go up to the Water Prosesing Plant (sorry about the spelling) and turn around, you will see the back of Lucas Simms house. Look up and you will see an entrance on the roof. Get something to jump on and climb up. Then there will be a stairwell that leads up to the top. Lanch the nuke here.

2. Tennpenny Tower

Get in to Tennpenny, then go up the elevator across the lobby from the entrance. Then turn left and there will be a door. Open it and go to the big double doors. You will be on a balcony, shoot the bomb here.

3. Rivet City

This one is simple. Go to Rivet City and at the end of the dock shoot the nuke here.

4. The Highways

Any highways you can get on.

5.WKLM Radio Station

Theres a cliff behind the Station

How to kill a Yau Gui easily.

Sneak up on a Yau Gui and place 4 mines infront of you. Choose a weapon thats powerful. e.g Missile launcher, fraggrenade, Gauge rifle etc. Fire at the bear and line his run up at you with the mines and stand behind a bit and wait for it to go boom. Highly entertaining.
