If you gamble in a casino and play roulette it doesn't matter if you win or lose as you will still gain 100 Experience Points.

Infinite XP in Vault 11

When you have reached the sacrificial chamber and dispatched the robots go to the computer terminal through the previousley closed wall and enter it. If you then press the bottom option repeatedly you will be able to gain 500 xp each time. If you select any of the other options or the terminal is exited you cannot use this exploit again.

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.

Thump-Thump Location

This grenade launcher which has the extended range of a barrel extension mod and enhanced AOE radius can be found in the Nellis Array Generators just south/south-east of the two array generator switches when you help the Boomers during or after the quest Ant Misbehavin'.

Euclid's C-Finder Location

This deadly weapon has the ability to strike down at the speed of light and reduce foes to ashes can be found when you enter the Freeside's East Gate. When you have entered locate the two children chasing each other (not chasing the mutated rat) during daylight and speak to the one possessing what appears to be a toy gun. You can purchase the gun for 1,000 caps or 20 caps with Barter at level 45 or greater. The weapon can be used when you supply the power to ARCHIMEDES II during the 'That Lucky Old Sun' mission. The weapon can only be used once each day because of the recharge time of the lasers.

Infinite Sunset Sarsaparilla Star Bottle Caps

If you fast travel into Scorpion Gulch you will find a wastelander who is either already dead or about to get attacked by Bark Scorpions. If he is alive wait until the scorpions have killed him and then search the body for a 'Sunset Sarsaprilla Star Bottle Cap'. Fast travel to Novac and wait three days, then fast travel back to Scorpion Gulch and repeat the process. The wastelander will always have a star cap on him whether he is alive or dead and you can keep repeating the process until you have gained the required 50 caps for the 'The Legend of the Star' side quest.


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

Unlimited Caps Glitch

When you are in Guardian Peak you will find 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 eventually give it to you along with some ammunition. This is best done after earning the perk that allows for over encumbered fast travel.

Unlimited Experience

When your character has at least a 35 Medicine skill and gains access to the main strip go to the Lucky 38 casino and search for Victor who will tell 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). Select the dialogue choice pertaining to ask him a few questions and ask 'Who exactly are you, Mr. House?' followed by 'You appear to be a computer, not a man'. Then select the Medicine Skill check response, 'The lifespan you're claiming is impossible, except for ghouls and super mutants'. You will then be awarded 35 Experience Points (or 39 Experience Points if you have the Swift Learner perk). This process can be repeated as many times as desired.
