Use 'Sneak' to make sure that you are hidden from view when you want to steal something and it's in the owners line of sight. 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 escort 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.

Infinite Sunset Sarsaparilla Star Bottle Caps

Fast travel into Scorpion Gulch and find the 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.

Unlimited Experience

The following trick can be performed when you have at least a 35 Medicine skill. When your character 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..

Thump-Thump Location

To find this grenade launcher which has the extended range of a barrel extension mod and enhanced AOE radius go to 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'.

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.

Euclid's C-Finder Location

To find this deadly weapon which has the ability to strike down at the speed of light and reduce foes to ashes you must 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 Caps (Pre-Patch)

Complete the 'My Kind Of Town' quest at the town of Primm 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.

Go to Vault 11 and you will get a small quest to find out what happened there. Once you get the overseer's passcode and enter it into her computer you will be led to the "sacrifical chamber." Use a stealthboy to get past everyone and when the walls on the left open (as you walk in) go into the door and access the computer mainframe. You will be given 3 options, "Override" and "Download" for 2 conversations. Click on the second download and you get 500 XP. DO NOT EXIT THE MAINFRAME!

More hidden weapons.

So people may have these guns already but here are ways to get two more guns and a machette.

Ok so I found this plasma type gun the Q-35 Matter Modulater in the Repconn HQ. To get it you need to go the 2nd floor of the HQ and find a room with a hole with a cave in a floor. Walk threw it and get the floating gun that will it.

Then another one I have found is a rocket launcher call Annabella.It can be found during the mission where you attack the super mutants at Black Mountain. One of them near the broadcast tower will usally have it on them. When I picked it up, the mutant was uses a machine gun so I may be alittle buggy. This is actually a modded rocket launcher.

And the last weapons is a caesar machette. I got this toward the end of the game, on the bod..

The Wasteland Survival Guide

If you played Fallout 3, you will recall that tidbit about The Wasteland Survival Guide. Well, it returns in Fallout: New Vegas! To find it, look on your Pip-Boy for a location called 'Lone Wolf Radio'. If you have not yet discovered it, it lies just south-west of Goodsprings. You will find a trailor. Enter it and search the floor. I am not sure if you need Wild Wasteland to find it. If you have it, then it will definatly work. After you pick it up, read it and you will gain to points in 'Survival'! Lucky you!

If you have any questions, contact me at [email protected] and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

Instant Reload

If you have a .357 or something that reloads one bullet at a time this will help. When you have one of those guns and more than one type of ammo and need to reload, you switch your ammo type back and forth when it shows the first bullet go in. If you got it right it will instantly reload the whole gun. It can be harder to do with some guns.

Incenerate enemies via, V.A.T.S.

All you need is a antimaterial rifle, incenerate ammo for the rifle. All you need to do is target something in V.A.T.S. Mode and exit out and they will catch on fire. I don't know if it works with all platforms

The other gun that I found is Vick's 9mm submachinegun. You can get this by going to the Wins hideout, which is just outside of vegas. All you need is 55 speach and talk to the woman,and follow what she says and you will get it.

These guns use 5.56mm and 9mm ammo so if you go after them you know what to have.

How to find thatgun

Never die free falling

Okay you have to have been as "speically" stupid as me to find this out but in fallout 3 and I noticed now fallout new vegas there is a glitch to where if you fall from someplace 50 or so feet up about 5 feet before you hit the ground and die save and unpause and after you die and reload the game will act as if you had only fell that five or so feet. Happy glitching SmilePVPE out!

Outside the Normal Map

Go to Morning Star Cave enter and then leave.Once outside go to the right and hug the cliffside. Keep going to the right you will be able to walk up the side of the cliff and below you will be alot of Geckos as you stand on the cliff. Once there you will be able to walk around outside the normal map.You can then go to the Vertibird Crash site and destroy the robots guarding it ( they can still shoot you but can't get to you). You can do the same thing at the Legate Camp ( you can kill everybody but, the Legate himself that can only be done at the end of the game.)So there you go this is the only other cheat I have found and only by accident.

OK, this glitch will take place in Primm, the second town just South of Goodsprings. You have to have completed the quest 'My Kind of Town'. Now once you have completed this quest, leave Primm for 3 days. Go to Goodsprings and wait 24 hours 3 times. Go back to Primm and enter their casino. Some people will enter.
