Greetings game fans!

Not to long ago I got Fable 2, and it didnt take me long to beat that game.
its kinda short so I went out and got myself a copy of Fallout 3!

WOW! This game has taken RPG/shooters to the next level!
I really love this game!!

And when I got the game, the guy told me, now your going to need to buy the book to help you out with the game..
I told him no thanks.. As I didnt feel any reason to spend an extra 20 bucks on a book, that I could just get the info for free online.

Thus For those of you who love this game and thinking about buying the guide, save your 20 bucks, and allow me to give you some insider knowledge and what I have found thus far on my own.
And well you know, doing some google searches to bring up anything I missed!

Firstly this game rocks!!! By far my fav. game right now..
What an in depth game, with tons of action, and that RPG flavor that I so love!

Fallout2 was a grand game that I played so many years back on the PC..

But this game just takes the cake!!!

So without further rambling I will share with you some things I found out..

Warning!!! Spoiler alert!! If you dont want to know and would like to get this stuff on your own, please stop reading!

Okay first things first..
Fallout 3 - Bobble-Heads

Throughout the game Fallout 3 there are 20 hidden Vaultboy Bobble Heads.
These little guys give you boosts in Stats & Skills.

The Republic of Dave - Perception
On bookshelf in Museum of Dave on the right when you walk in.
Megaton - Strength (VIDEO)
In Sheriff Lucas’ house. For the ones who want to blow up Megaton: You should pick this one up BEFORE you decide to blow up the town because once you do it’s gone. It is located upstairs on Lucas’ desk.

Deathclaw Sanctuary -Endurance
At the entrance of this cave there may be some patrolling Deathclaws and a few Enclave Soilder’s and a Enclave Scientist. You can use a stealthboy to get past them and enter the cave. Just go straight and once you reach the end of the decline form the entrance turn left and you will see a rotting Brahmin corpse. The Bobblehead is right beside it. Use another Stealthboy and exit.

Rivet City - Intelligence
On Dr. Li’s table in science lab.

Vault 108 - Charisma
Cloning Labs

Greener Pastures Disposal - Agility
This entire area is covered in Radiation so be prepared. The Bobblehead is located within the small stone office building that is back against a rocky wall. The Bobblehead is right in front of you on a desk beside a terminal when you walk in.

Arlington Cemetery North - Luck
Arlington House

SKILL Bobble-Heads

Paradise Falls - Speach
Inside the Slave Masters house (Euology’s pad) On a table next to a computer terminal and safe. In the corner of the back room.

Evergreen Mills - Barter
Market Bazaar- On a shelf in the upper right hand side of Smiling Jack’s Workshop. It is down one of the side tunnels in the Bazaar near the back.

Vault 106 - Science
In the living quarters on a racked shelf. There will be much navigating in this vault along with attacks from crazy vault dwellers and being plagued by flashback from our childhood. I will say this is a trippy vault….

Yao Guai Tunnels - Sneak
In the Den, on top of a metal box on the right side of your map near some water where a body is floating on the other end.

Vault 101 -Medicine
On Your Dad’s Desk. You can get this one BEFORE you take the G.O.A.T and BEFORE you leave the vault when your trying to escape.

Arefu - Repair
Evan Kings House. You will need to pick the lock on his door. (Requires 50 Lockpicking Skill) The Bobble-Head is on your left as soon as you enter the house and is sitting on Evan’s kitchen table in the corner.

Bethesda - Lockpick
Bethesda Offices East. Will be sitting on one of the desks past the flamethrower raider.

Dunwich Building - Melee
Inside the Virulent Underchambers. In a lone office that is accessed by two or three sets of stiars. It will be on the floor when you open the door.

Fort Constantine - Big Guns
C.O. House - In the basement. In a safe in the wall.

Rockopolis -Unarmed
West of Casey Smith’s Garage. Should be near same tattered banners. The door to this place is a rock so your in the right place if you see the banners. Just approach it and you will get the option to go in. The Bobblehead is on your far right on the ground.

Ravenhold - Energy Weapons

National Guard Depot - Small Guns
National Guard Armory -(There’s a switch on the 3rd floor) Once you pull the switch the Armory Door will open.

WKML Broadcast Station - Explosives
Sealed Cister (aka. manhole)- It is not inside the Broadcast Station, actually, it is more or less on it’s perimeter. The best way to get to this location is to start by facing the stairs that lead up to the Station. In the position looking foreword, up the stairs, DON’T GO UP but turn left and start walking as close to the rocky wall (Not the building wall but the rocky wall around the station base.) as possible. Keep moving along with the wall, keep your cursor on the ground base of it and eventually you will see the manhole on the ground nestled against the rocky ledge. I saw raiders in the area near it so look for them to if you think your lost. The manhole is white with a brown seal, it looks like a circular rock so make sure to pay attention. Once you find it just go down and a desk will be right in front of you with the Bobblehead on it.


Okay here is the part where I had a little bit of trouble.. I ended up the first time around losing alot of my karma and becomming an evil charater.

I wanted to play this one threw as the good guy..
Sure its great fun to blow everyone and everything away.. But for the sake of a good challenge I wanted to be the good guy!

So here is the tip for the postive karma in this section..

Tranquility Lane - Good Karma
Completing this quest with good karma as the reward is actually really easy. Enter the abandoned house and examine all of the objects in the living room. You need to examine these objects in a specific order to make the computer appear.

TIP: The correct sequence is: Radio, pitcher, gnome, pitcher, cinder block, gnome, bottle.

A squad of Chinese soldiers will raid the town, killing all of its residents for good. It may seem like this is actually an evil thing to do, but remember that if you didn't do this, they'd be forced to endlessly repeat the cycle of living and dying at the will of Dr. Braun.
Talk to Betty to listen to her whine and cry about how you've ruined everything. Once you're done talking with her, use the door to exit the simulation.

Once the door of the lounger opens, you'll finally be able to reunite with your father. Talk with him to complete the quest. Quest Completed.

Okay this is just a little start to this new thread here..
If anyone else has any questions about any part of the game feel free to ask me. Either in this thread, or Via U2.. Id be happy to help you out.
And save you 20 bucks...

No need to buy a guide in this day and age when information is at our finger tips!!!

And any other comments about this game too are welcome here!!!

This game just simply kicks all butt!! And these guys know how to make a video game!
Ive been waiting for this title for many years now!!

Happy Gaming!!!

dang it i love this game so stinking much!! im a level 13 with 100 in repair and 70 in small arms, im your basic gunner with slightly above average lock picking skills..


how do i find the cellar key for hamiltons hideout?

vault 106 did trip me out a lot, so i need to go back there and get my fifth bobblehead.

i find that if you give purified water to that bum outside megaton it will just increase your good karma, i give ALL my water to this guy, cause i want to as good as possible in the game.

reply to post by LordThumbs

And my aim is to get as evil as possible, i've noticed it doesn't really have much impact on how u play the game, wether your evil or not, granted some reactions to you differ alot, and you can get into paradise falls and be accepted or respected there, and i also heard of a place where you can't get into at all unless you have an evil i actually take it back, the effects of your actions are pretty varied.

Mannn, wanna go play now but im stuck at balls!!

Dude ! You are in for a real treat here then!!! I really had a great time with Oblivion! And the same people who brought you that great game made this game..
Oh man! its like a great mix of a shooter, with a touch of RPG!
And these days RPG are the next big thing..
However since the days of spy hunter and Qbert, Ive been a huge RPG fan!
You are so right! They have come so far from those days!
I remember spy hunter.. I wanted that game so bad, because I use to wasted all my coins on the stand up machine!
Then I got it on NES.. I was about 7 years old at the time!
Good times man! Your going to really like this game bro!

I will have to say this is my fav game right now!

I even went ahead and busted out my old Fallout 2.. Just to remind myself of how far they have really come from!
I have always really lliked the fallout PIP boy style..

I think its one of the better titles out right now.
I can say this should be game of the year 2008 hands down..

Playing this game on the big screen TV, with all the lights out..
And having roaming ghouls run up on me, makes me jump a bit out of my seat.. hehe love it!!!

Have fun man...! And Happy thanks Giving!!!

War.. War never changes!!!

There is so much to this game! I mean soooo much that there is no way Im going to be able to even touch base here with a couple posts.
So as the weeks go on, anything I find I will add here into this thread.

And I will do my best to find out the questions you ask me aswell..

Good or evil? Big changes in the game is made threw your choices of good VS Evil charaters..
You just have to make a couple different games.

You can either Disarm the Bomb in megaton.. You need an Explosive skill of only 25 to do that..
If you do it for free, the Lucus Sim will give you the key to the house in mega ton

And Want I do.. Is when I find tons of loot, I go back to the house, and drop everything in the locker, and go back out.
Horde everything, and sell later when your barter skill Is higher.

Or you can arm the bomb to blow up.. And head over to Penpenny tower.
And then you will be given a Room at tenpenny tower..
But megaton will be gone forever..
So if you do that, besure to rob and kill everyone in megaton before you blow it up..
And thats just the start... Oh yes only the mere start to the vastness to this game!!!

Tenpenny tower is great fun too.. You can either team up with them.
Or unleash feral ghouls on them, and turn the place into a dead zone!!

So many choices!! and so little time... lol

More to come folks..
STay tuned!! And so many different outcomes to what you hear on the radio too!! Galaxy Radio changes depending on what you do..
Or you can kill 3 Dog and shut him up for good.. Like i said soo many choices!!!

And Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!
Xmas is next and this guide is going to take us into the new year!!!
Going to be a long guide here, and is going to save you 20 bucks

Repairs and Weight issues...

Okay so you want to carry as much stuff as you can.. Atleast to the point where you can get that stuff back to a place where you can store it.

If you put some stuff in a locker, or any type of container, no worries, it will still be there when you come back for it..
The stuff just doesnt disapear, it will stay where ever you put it, until you can come back to pick it back up..

This is a little trick I use over and over so I can gather up as much stuff as I can..
And I have lockers full of spare parts to fix and repair my good stuff..

---Edit in-- having a partner can help you carry much stuff aswell!
You can find people who are either willing to join you.. Or you can pay them to come with you..
however it depends upon your Karma who will join you or not.
Tommorow my next post will be about those who join you, and what and where they are and what karma is needed for them

Thus having a high repair skill is very important in this game.
This way when you have more than 1 of the same weapon, armor you can then repair what you are wearing, and that will ease up some weight for you.
And this way, when something is in top shape you will get more caps for the said item.
A gun that is about to break is only good for one thing really, and thats spare parts.. It wont be sold at a very good price, unless you fix it up real nice like, and then sell it.

Also it best to wait a little bit until you have a higher barter skill to start to sell alot of stuff... And vendors and merchants only have so many caps at one given time.
This is why its good to use Barter and trade to earn yourself some ammo.
Stim packs and other things in trade form.

Also in Megaton, when you go to the bar, be nice to Gob.. He will sell you really cheap Stim packs if you are nice to him the first time you talk with him!

Its really easy to be a bad guy in this game.. And sure I have one charater where I play one mean bad guy who kills and murders, steals from everyone I met, and makes them slaves aswell..

But its a true challenge to play as a good guy.. And the better Karma you have, 1 time a day you will be met by a towns person in megaton..
They will give you 1 random item for being good.

In the slaver town, if you are bad, the slaver will give you a random item for negtive Karma..

In Big town, The chick Bittercup will also give you some goodies.
If you are nice to her to start..

Also there is a little EXP exploit in big town.
If you have a high speach skill.. Talk to bittercup, say all the good things to her, then go back to pappy.

And you can do the speach thing over and over again.. Which will earn you 6 EXP each time you do this..
Here is a video, that explains this exploit.

This is only good if you want to play threw as a high level charater to get the feel for this game.
When I first started the game, I turned the level down to very easy.
Just to get the feel for the game.. Next time around Im gonig to crank the level up to very hard.. See what kind of maddness I will get from that..

Also its a good idea to save up your ammo..
Use hand to hand weapons verse minor things.. This way you dont blow threw all your ammo..
Rad scorpions are easy hand to hand,, just dont get backed into a corner.
You can ease back and swing, and they cant hit you..
Just keep on moving backwards, and they will miss you!

There are a few foes in this game that you can dog out, and get behind, and they wont be able to hit you, as long as you dont get yourself backed into a corner

Well thats all for right now.. Back to the game..

Much much more to come.. Writting as I go along here

Oh before I forget.. Edit...
Never crank a stat to 10 off the bat.. Such as strenght, only put 8 into that max when you start.. There are many items and things you can do to earn yourself a point here and there.. Thus it would be a waste to max anyone SPEACIL trait to 10 to start..

I suggest starting with 8 on any given stat.. You will find stuff to raise your stats 2 points in the game here and there

Thats a good little starter hint and you wont waste points..
As with strenght, its easy to get a 10 strenght.. By just starting it off as a 6 or 7 to 8...

Many things and drugs will raise your stats up to the point where you need to get it maxed..
Drugs are Bad mmmkay! Unless its in Fallout 3!!
My guy is a bad junkie!!! heheh

Best game I have ever played bar none!!!

The only thing I would like to see is the level cap at 20 to come off so you can keep going an build your character to the max with stats and perks. Im curious to see what kind of downloadable content they will come out with for the game.

Also there are a few REALLY cool (personal) weapons you can find in the game through quests and such. Keep track of the notes you receive.

Ultra 10mm smg - from the girl you team up with in the National Archives. Don't waste your stims and time trying to keep her alive. Let here die and take her gun.

Xio...something something assault rifle (Chinese assault Rifle) huge damage- found it on a body in a diner. I believe its part of a side quest you find at the aerospace museum from one of the computer terminals. Its pretty easy to figure out as long as you have a good grasp of prime numbers.

Terrible Combat Shotgun - taken from the body of the CO (Talon) at one of the forts. I believe you need to have a huge lockpick skill (100?) to get into the underground of the base (bunkers) once inside, fight your way through and kill the leader..its on him

you get an awesome laser pistol from the robot superhero guy in the quest about robot guy and the antagonizer. I killed her because there was nothing really to get from her. Once done, go talk to the robot guy and be nice to him. Give him the Antagonizers armor and convince him to leave town to go help others and he will give you the laser pistol.

So far thats all I have found.

Easy Money - when you go into a building where most of the enemies are robots, take a lot of pulse grenades to help and collect all the ammo you get from them. There are certain types of the energy ammo that is worth 2 or 3 caps for 1 ammo so build up a lot of that type (no weight to ammo) and sell what you dont need at any trader or store. I played the game a few times over so far but found I didn't need more than 100 of each ammo type. Also I never used a lot of the big weapons like the mini gun or rocket launcher too much so I sold what I found. When you kill a bad guy and search his body, check out the condition of his armor. Sometimes you can get quite a few caps (40+) if its in good shape and you have the strength to carry it.

Cont: Nuke Cola quantum quest gives you quite a few caps. plus you can sell what you find after the quest is finished. I found that I never needed to drink it. sell it !!!

Sugar Bombs - save those and give them to the goul you will find in the underground close to tenpenny tower. He's making super jet with them and will give you 15 caps per box.

Reilly's Rangers - once you complete this quest she will give you a gps/mapping tool and will pay you for every place you discover (you can make thousands of caps) so dont be too eager to explore everything before you get the mapper. I made over 10000 caps in less than an hour of exploring new areas.

Buy as many stims as you can, sell all your water and food stuffs you find.
once I had collected a bunch of stuff to sell for caps, I buy about 200 stim packs which is more than enough plus they dont add to your weight. you can then sell what ever food stuffs you find (i suggest doing this early in the game) you will always come across more throughout the game to add to your inventory. Plus buy as much RAD-X and RAD-away too.

if you help the ghoul get into tenpenny, he will give you a ghoul mask to wear that while wearing it, ghouls will not attack you unless you attack them first.


- get up close and use the combat shotty to the head. 1 or 2 shots is all it takes

- the animal friend perk comes in handy if you are tired of having dogs, yao guai and mole rats come after you while exploring. (does not work on insects, death claws, scorps, or ants)

the first 2 skills you should max out are science and lockpick along with repair and small guns you will be a one man/woman killing breaking into machine. Plus there are quite a few places that require 100% on lock and science to get into but its well worth it for the shwag you find.

I will add more as well when I remember it.

Another tip I thought of.

- instead of using stims or food to heal yourself all the time. After you kill all the enemies, look around for a bed to sleep in for a few hours. you 'll wake up fully healed, get a well rested xp bonus for a few hours and save your stock of stims for when you may be in dire straights (middle of a battle)

- I also suggest having the animal friend 1 perk before you look for the bobble head in the yao guai cave.

Money#2 - save all the mines you find and sell them. I found them useless in the more of a "in your face with a shotty" kind of player.

Tip - repair you armor always!!!! or get it repaired on a regular basis.

Tip - be careful when selling things to vendors. They only have a limited amount of caps and if you are not careful you will reach there limit and basically end up giving them valuable things for free.

Tip - Save as often as you can or at least before you do something / decision in the game that could have unwanted or bad reactions. That way if you don't like the choice you made you can revert back to the point before you made the decision and go the other way

Tip - dont pay Dr's to heal you. Its a waste of caps and cheaper to buy the stims and do it yourself.

Tip - if your medical skills are high you will get more use out of food, stims and rad-away

Bartering tip - buy what you need from the vendor then sell whatever junk you have to get your money back especially when the vendor hasn't many caps to begin with. After some trading from them they might not have any so if thats the case, buy what you need first then they will have the caps to buy the junk you need to offload.

Also, in the quest you get from Arefu and you locate "the Family" convince the boy to go home and be nice to "the Family" because they will teach you a skill where you get 20hp from a single blood pack instead of 1

posted on Nov, 26 2008 @ 03:08 PM
When doing the quest for the ant scientist be sure that when you are finished to take the ant strength bonus as it will allow you to carry more shwag to sell at a vendor.

Tip - explore the buildings even if they don't have a quest involved. Its a great way to find lots of things to sell at vendors and make big money.

Weapons I thought were useless IMO.

-minigun - too much weight and any other gun will do the trick
-flamer - not a fan because in close quarters you can cause yourself damage.
-Dart Gun - useless
-Deathclaw hand thing - its ok but.....
-knives (any kind) except the ripper
-power fist - I prefer the shotty for close quarters

Tip-keep track of what you need to build your special custom weapons and save them in your locker at home for future use.

-all weapons you make have multiple upgrades providing you find the schematics

-fix broken limbs asap

-nuke cola not only gives you hp, you can collect caps from them so look in every vending machine

on a side note, I am having trouble getting to a few places maybe someone can help me with

1. the whitehouse
2. in the irradiated metro I cant seem to find the door to get to the other side of the river.

Great Tips!! Thanks for taking part in this guide!
And you know what man.. Ive been trying to get into the white house for the past couple days.. No luck..hehe
Im also stuck right where you are too.. So once I get some further info I will be sure to let you know.
If you happen to find it before me, please let me know!!!

And with level caps.. I hate um... Thats the only thing that bothers me about the game is the fact you can not move past level 20.
But more reason to feel they will add an expansion pack, or another add on to this already wonderful game!!!

I have a couple different games going on right now.. One good guy. One bad guy.. And one slaver guy.. TAking a look threw the game at all the different outcomes of playing each way.

Also depending upon your actions is how your father will feel about you.
He will either be proud of you.. Or disapointed in you for doing bad.

I also suggest doing the wasteland Guide as soon as you can.
Many of them are easy, that you can get done in town..
Such as the Rad sickness.. Take it up to 600 and you get a new perk!

For the damage one, you can jump off a ledge break your legs then run back up there!

All the other ones are pretty easy and you can get them done before you go out in the world.. You can also lie on many of the quests, and just get them done. But you get more out of it if you really go and do the quests.

Also I suggest taking the special perks such as Child at heart, and lady killer! They help out a bit when you met up with the Antagonizer!
You can tell her you belive in her and she will not attack the town anymore and give you her suit!

It just so happens, that in my game most the merchants are dead..
I found them laying on the road side taken out by Enclave encampments!
Bastards took out lucky!! And thats where I got most my ammo from too.

Turn in for money.. Fingers.. Once you have the lawbringer perk, you can turn in fingers for good karma and caps.
Ears.. Once you have the contract killer, you can kill normal folk and get negtive Karma and caps.

Scrap metal. You can turn them in at megaton. Water processing plant.
Or take them to underworld, to Quinn.

Prewar Books.. Take them to the scribe at the libary for easy caps!

All tech- The outcast brotherhood will pay you for all high tech you can bring to them!

And as you said in the above post Sugar Bombs, you sell to the ghoul so he can make his Super Jet!!

Jericho.. In megaton, he wont join you unless you are a bad guy.
Ghoul in underworld.. He will join you if you buy his contract off the bar man!
Brotherhood chick- She will join you after your father dies, and you have postive karma
Guy Fawlks.. Meta human-- He will join you after you have gotten out of Raven rock.. YOu need a high karma for him to join..
He is kick as NPC!!! I have him in my group, and hes tuff!!!
Dogmeat-- You can find the dog in the scrap yard..
My dogmeat got aced.. I sent him to find ammo and he got killed.. Poor doggy.. hehe

Those are all the NPC I have found.. But Im sure there are many many more I just havent found yet!

Well thats all for now.. Happy thanksgiving everyone BTW!!!!

I will have some time to get into some FAllout later today after I pack on the pounds with tons of grub!!! woo hoo!

Lets talk Fallout 4!! hehe so soon? well kinda

Fallout 3's radiation sickness hasn't even begun to set in and already people are talking about another sequel. Understandable, given the pause between Fallout 2 and next week's post-nuclear follow up stretched on for a decade, a wait that Bethesda's executive producer Todd Howard even admits was a touch much.

"I think it's good for people to miss things," Howard commented to Reuters. "Ten years between 'Fallout' is a bit long, but I think there's this nostalgia factor." In fact, the report notes that Howard thinks waiting three years or so is about right, though Bethesda's Pete Hines gives the inevitable sequel a wider berth. The company's VP of public relations tells Edge that it would be more accurate to expect Fallout 4 "before 2018" (since Howard did say 10 years was too long to wait). Geeze, by that time, we'll probably be living in our own apocalyptic wasteland, and Fallout will just be the game we play when we go outside.

1. the whitehouse

When you find Pennsylvania Avenue, head west until you hit the radioactive part where the White House used to stand. There is a fence around it that you cannot cross, and you'll see some warning signs that it's Radioactive. You'll see a courtyard to the North, on your right, and a little bit behind you if you're right at the fence, if you're facing the White House(what's left of it), and in the center of the courtyard is a statue of 3 women holding some sort of bowls, I'm thinking it was supposed to be a fountain. Anyway, in the North West corner of this courtyard, not where the cobblestones are, but on the actual cement part, is a manhole. Go down the manhole, and you'll be underground. Straight ahead is a car that someone on a motorcycle tried to jump, and failed. Anyway, to the right is a room with a workbench and a bottlecap mine in it. And to the left is a hall that goes down some stairs, and around a corner, and then up some more stairs. You'll eventually hit a door that opens up onto Pennsylvania Ave. Before you go through the door though, take some Rad-X, and make sure your Rads are low. Once you open the door, there will be 2 Glowing Ones. Blow them away and head up the broken stairs, and on the next floor will be a Fat Man launcher as well as 3 Mini-Nukes for it. And to get it, you just go back the same way you came, or fast-travel back to where ever

There you go! Hope that helps those who haven't already discovered it. And if this is old for some people, don't bother replying and saying it is, because I don't care. I'm only here to help the people that have been asking how to get into the White House.

Ive been saving up my minni nukes.. I have 30 of them so far..
And going to drop the B's on any Enclave camps that are now all around the waste land!

Once your father dies.. The enclave spots will start to spawn..

Also when you are in town watch out for the drop points!
Vertibirds will come in and drop off Encalve warriors, and Deathclaws!

You can blow them up if you are quick about it..
But let the Vertibird drop off its warriors, then hit the thing with a missle lancher..
Or the minni gun! You will blow up the Vertibird, and take out whatever was dropped out by it!!

Its good fun to blow up Cars, trucks, and other things in the world..

IF you see your foes taking cover behind cars or trucks.. throw a frag at the car, and BOOM!!!! Body parts go flying everywhere!!!


And just a reminder... When you get a house, or find any type of locker..
Store up your stuff!! It will all be saved where ever you drop it off at.
That way you can pack rat a whole bunch of stuff. and not have to worry about trying to lugg all that crap around with you!!!

Plus its good to save that stuff up until you have a high Barter skill!!!

REmember before you barter, dress to impress!!
I have a Button wig, which gives me +5% to speach and barter.
Then my prewar biz suit..

I always carry those extra clothes on my charater.. So when IM in town, and not in battle I dress for the extra Barter points..

As my enclave helmet gives me -1 to char. So dont want to be wearing that stuff when I go to sell my goods!!

Its a great way to stock up and store everything you need until its time to go and sell!!

My Good Karma Charater has 25,675 Caps!!!

I just like getting as many caps as I can!
And I save up my nuka cola.. I got a vending machine for my home.
and you can make them Ice cold..
Ive horded up on everything I can.. I have alteast 400 ice cold Nuka Colas.
And I save up my stim packs.. I have over 500 of them

This game freakin rocks!!!

I remember in fallout 2 you could find yourself a Car and fix it up and drive it!
Now thats the only thing fallout 3 is missing.. A motor bike would have been pretty damn cool to have!

I can understand driving a car wouldnt work to well on this ruff landscape.

Fallout 2 was a bit different.. Much flatter game, hence made driving a little easy to get done..

Now what would be even better if you could STeal a Vertibird And fly it all around the map!!!
Prehaps you can?? Does anyone know if you can steal a Vertibird and fly it around?? Chance are no.. But thought I would ask anyway.. That would be pimp!!!

They put alot of work into this game.. And I dont expect to much more from this already wonderful title..
But still it would be easy to put in something you could drive or fly..
I mean the game could handle that...

How cool would that be.. To fly a Vertibird around the waste lands!!!
A little information about the Vertibird!
The VB-02 VTOL craft, codenamed Vertibird, is a pre-War military multipurpose helicopter, extensively used by the Enclave in post-War America. It has a heavily armored fuselage and can be outfitted with a variety of offensive weapons and defensive countermeasures, the most common being a Gatling Laser and a missile rack.

It was still in prototype phase when the Holocaust of 2077 struck, preventing it from entering full military service (scheduled for 2085). However, aircraft that was produced were seized by Enclave members and loyalists and either transferred to their bases or secured in shelters.

Two models of the craft used by the Enclave - a less combat oriented version with a glass canopy, six legs and a large cargo bay and a dedicated gunship version with a more heavily armoured hull, four retractable landing struts and an impressive air maneuverability.
The Vertibird is a lateral twin-rotor (non-synchronized) helicopter design. An actual experimental prototype for this type of aircraft was the Platt-LePage XR-1/XR-1A tested by the US Army in the 1940's. Others included the German Fa 223 and the McDonnell XHJD-1 "Whirlaway".

The XR-1 was the first American military helicopter to takeoff and hover with good control, but the lateral design was generally plagued by significant vibration and control problems when in motion. Synchronized lateral rotor aircraft like the Kellett XR-10 worked better, but the concept was eventually abandoned in favor of the tandem (fore-aft) twin-rotor configuration that is in use today (e.g. the Chinook). In Fallout 3, closer inspection has revealed that they are indeed tilt-rotor craft.

The name "Vertibird" is the trademark for a toy helicopter playset popular in the 70's. Some design aspects of the unusual aircraft appear to be inspired by that hovering insect, the dragonfly. For example, the six legged landing gear and twin bulges in the forward fuselage.

I tend to make my house look really cool.. When I find Nuka trucks I set them up in my house, along with many of the cool things I find..
I will make a video of my house so you can all see just how much you can do with decorating part of this game..
Thats just another part to this massively huge game!!!

Now just think if this was multi player.. Oh man!!!
Some day they will make this like a WOW type game..
A MMO fallout style would be pretty damn cool, I belive its just a matter of time before they think about that one.. Yet Im sure they have given it some thoughts.. So its just a matter of time..

thank you so much for all the info thus far.

you werent kidding when you said you wanted to make a helpers guide. sheesh.

well im a level 15 with some very impressive positive karma,
i find that giving your purified water to the homeless guy in front of megaton helps.

im really enjoying this game to the fullest. i cant say it enough.

i have so much ammo,and different types of guns now.. but after reading i think i may just stash em up in my locker at the house.

i've discovered tons of location but have yet to even tackle the main quest. i havent even visited 3 dog yet!!

lastly you know a game is good when you can sit in front of it for 3 hours and it only feels like 1 hour has gone by. i cant believe it. ill play for what truely feels like 20 min and its actually 45 min!!!

reply to post by LordThumbs

NP!!! Im glad that this info has made your gaming exp that much more enjoyable!!!

I will be working on some more info here this comming up week!!

Yes the pure water is great for getting karma back up too good!

There is one guy outside of Megaton.. And there is a guy that sits close to the bridge near Rivet City, the huge aircraft carrier..

There is also a guy who is sitting somewhere near the vault 101 that you come out of.. I found him on one charater, and I will be damned if I cant find him again.. he is hiding behind some rocks close to vault 101..

Also there is alot of people who are taken prisonors by super mutants..
Or as they rather be called Meta humans!
You can save them, and tell them to keep what they where going to give you and it will give you more postive karma!

Another good way to get good karma is by donating to the many churches you will come across in the game.. The church of Atom in Megaton.
And the church in Rivet city aswell..

You can also kill a queen ant, and bring the Girl that works at Gary's Galley some pheromones, and she will end up getting married!
That to will bank you some postive Karma and you can watch the wedding!

Its extreamly easy to earn negtive Karma in this game.. To play the bad guy is an easy route that will lead you down a dark path..
Such as getting into the slaver city without having to get the VIP people they are looking..

But I ended up killing all the slavers, and saving the people who where in paradise city.. And in another game, I am a slaver and I run around and gather up slaves.. But you have to clear a path for them to get their safely. Otherwise the slaves you send on their way will only get aced on their way back to the slaver city..

So you have to walk all the way threw, and kill everything that is standing in the way and will kill your slaves..
And sometimes the device that gets the slave will not work and you will go into a hostile mode.. And if you have an NPC with you.. They will start shooting them, and kill your possible slaves..
So if you have an NPC.. Before you get a slave, leave them behind for a little bit until you get what you need done..

I have Jericho with me on that charater.. He is a real baddass and is good to run with on an evil charater!

Well thats all for now.. Wish I had more time to play this week, but work calls and well, gotta do what I gotta do.. the game will be here waiting for me when I get home

LOL I got rick rolled myself.. So I just couldnt help myself there, and had to post that one up so I wasnt the only rick roll'ed foo!! hehehe

Good times man! Good times!!!

Do enjoy and if you have any more questions about the game, feel free to ask away.. Ive gotten pretty good so far, and know my way around !!!

I have beaten this game a couple times so far, but running back threw and getting everything I missed..

Also trying to figure out whats up with all these radio station channles Im finding.. I dont know if I can get to the station where the signal is comming from..
But one such channle I hear heavy breathing.. sounds like the likes of a Deathclaw!!!

Those thigns are bad news at low levels!! They will eat you up and own you but good, and extreamly fast!!
But if you have a weapon that does over 50-75 damage you shouldnt have to much problem with them, aslong as you keep your distance..

Also the Enclave uses deathclaws in many of their outposts..

Back in Fallout 2 There was a group of Deathclaws who where smart and would talk with you.. They wouldnt kill you unlesss you saw them as monsters and tried to kill them..

Deathclaws are the next step in the evolution of the fallout world..
These things have very deep and intense socities! And they can speak english...
Yet in fallout 3.. they are simply monsters who will go hand to hand and beat up on a low level charater..

But you can get the deathclaw hand, and find the pattern to make yourself a deathclaw weapon!!! Its a pretty good hand to hander..

And best of all it saves up that well needed ammo!!

Ah also to add... YOur NPC do not run out of ammo.. Just make sure they have some of the ammo they use for what ever weapon they are using, and they have an unlimited supply of ammo for the said weapon!!!

I shall return with more info!

Okay I took a little time on some research and wanted to share this information with all you hard core gamers who are looking for a little bit more knowledge about this great game!!!

Okay here we go.. We are going to start with the Combat Basics..

-----------------------------Combat Basics----------------------------------------

Always use VATS to attack. Fallout 3 is not a run-and-gun shooter, so don't play it like one! In combat, tap the right trigger (PS3 and Xbox 360 versions) to enable the VATS targeting system. VATS will allow you to inflict the maximum amount of damage — far more than simply firing from the hip — and take down enemies quickly and easily. If you're not using VATS regularly, you are asking for trouble.

Concentrate your fire on one body part. Use the VATS targeting system to concentrate all of your attacks on one body part (such as the head or torso). Once that body part becomes crippled, it's easy to blow it off with one or two more shots. Easy peasy!

Conserve ammo. This one's a no-brainer, but still bears mentioning. In the grey, dismal world of Fallout 3, resources are in scarce supply and it's wise not to waste what little ammo you'll find.

Small Guns are big on power. There's no dishonor in investing in Small Guns. Contrary to its diminutive name, the Small Guns class encapsulates high-end killing machines such as the Sniper Rifle, Scoped .44 Magnum, and the Assault Rifle. And because bullets are more common than laser batteries and explosives, you'll generally have more ammo.

Repair is important. Consider boosting your Repair skill to 40 or 50 if you're a combat-centric character, as making repairs in town can be a pricey process.

Always carry a spare for your favorite weapon. To fix one weapon, you'll need another of the same variety. If your combat shotgun breaks in the middle of a fight, you'll want access to a spare so you can perform a quick field strip and get right back in the fight.

Strength and Agility are critical for fighters. These two S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats are most important for fighters, and will let you carry more gear and inflict more damage in combat. A high Agility will give you more accuracy in VATS aiming as well.

---------------------------Scavenging for Loot-----------------------------------

Be sure to carry bobby pins. Many players forget to bring bobby pins to the battlefield, which will prevent you from accessing the best loot. These little miracles are the chief way to open locked containers. Without bobby pins, you'll only be able to force locks using your screwdriver.

Bump up your Barter skill. The Barter stat directly impacts how much — or how little — items cost in the shops. If you want to amass a mountain of bottlecaps, bump Barter up to 50 or 75. Having high Charisma will also help here.

Crafting items fetch a hefty price. Even if you don't want to construct your own weapons, crafting items are often worth collecting for their high resale value. The heavier components — vacuums, leaf blowers, motorcycle gas tanks — aren't usually worth the wasted inventory space. But smaller items such as conductors and sensors are worth a pretty penny, so grab 'em and sell 'em.

Save your Scrap Metal. In Fallout 3, scrap metal is a valuable resource. So much so that two characters — one in Megaton, the other in Underworld — will happily buy your scrap metal at high rates.

Ammo is gold. In Fallout 3, ammunition fetches a tidy resale sum. That means you should grab every single round you find, from the lowly BB all the way up to the mini-nuke, even if you never intend to fire them. You're never broke if you have access to thousands of rounds of seldom-used ammo.

Save those mini-nukes! You'll earn a free Fatboy launcher and almost 10 of the mini-nukes when you first fight the Behemoth outside of the Galaxy News Radio Station. Because the mini-nuke ammunition is worth a small fortune in resale value — 300+ caps per round — it's better to blow away the Behemoth with a standard missile launcher and save the pricey ammo.

Practice picking locks. Picking locks requires a little persistence Think of it as a cold-warm-hot test: the idea is to spend your first try testing to see where the lock's "cold spots" are, then spending your second attempt on locating the hot spot and opening the lock. Once you've narrowed down the "cold" parts of the lock, you'll have a much better idea where to stick the next bobby pin. Common "hot spots" on locks are the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions.

Put at least 25 points into Explosives. If you invest 25 skill points in Explosives, you'll be able to disarm frag mines and collect them for resale. Once you hit 25 in Explosives, head over to Minetown to scoop up over a dozen of the little buggers and cash them in for some serious dough.

Wearing certain outfits will boost your skills. Some special outfits in the game will boost your abilities by 5 points in a particular discipline. The most useful are the ones that boost your Repair skill — swapping to this outfit when repairing items is an easy way to get more

Keep your armor in tip-top shape. The lower your armor's condition, the more damage you'll take in battle. Keep it patched up or you'll be at a big disadvantage against tougher opponents. The same goes for weapons: the lower the condition, the lower the damage.

--------------------------------Levelling Up----------------------------------------

Reading is comprehending! While picking through the rubble, you'll occasionally find books with snappy titles (Puglism Quarterly, Grognak the Barbarian). If you pick up and use the book, you'll gain one skill point. Also consider investing the Comprehension perk early the game — you'll gain an extra skill point for every book you read.

Choose the right perks. There are plenty of fun perks in Fallout 3 (Bloody Mess, anyone?). But you're better off choosing perks that give you more tangible, lasting benefits. Useful early perks include Gun Nut (boosts both Small Guns and Repair skills by 5), Strong Back (grants 50 extra pounds of inventory space), and Intense Training. Which will raise one stat point by 1 permantly!!!

Don't spread out your skill points. It's a mistake to try and be a "jack of all trades" in Fallout 3 by diversifying your skill points. You'll have far better luck by choosing two or three areas of mastery. I went for Small guns, med, and repair. Secondary, Lockpick, stealth, Barter.

There are several "must-have" skills. Some skills are too useful to completely ignore. Medicine, Repair, and Barter are all extremely helpful and worth sinking at least 25 (preferably 40-50) skill points into.

Endurance and Strength are the most useful stats. Endurance enables you to take more damage in combat, and Strength gives you more carrying capacity. Both are well worth investing in. At the start before you leave Vault 101 you can crank char to lets say 1, then make other stats 8. Never go over 8 to start, you can always get 2 points down the road. High intl, means more skill poinst pre level!

Choose the Fast Learner perk to earn more experience. Every time you sink a point into the Fast Learner perk, you'll earn 10% larger experience rewards. If you want to reach level 20, invest in this perk as early as possible.

High Intelligence grants you more skill points. Boosting your Intelligence rank will grant you extra skill points every time you level up, enabling you to master more disciplines. As with the Fast Learner perk, you'll want to make this decision early in the game in order to get the maximum benefit.

Level 20 is the highest level. You can't proceed past level 20. In order to reach that, you'll have to embark on most of the game's numerous side quests. You'll also want to kill as many enemies and disarm as many traps as possible to get maximum experience points.

Collect the Bobbleheads. If you search hard, you'll find Bobblehead collectible items that you can stash on the trophy case in your house in Megaton. Each Bobblehead you find will slightly boost your stats, so it's worth tracking down as many as you can. You can find one in Sherriff Lucas's house in Megaton.

Find the secret perks. In Fallout 3, you can earn undocumented "secret" perks as quest rewards. The first one, Rad Regeneration, is earned if you complete Moira's Survival Guide chapter on radiation poisoning. To earn Rad Regeneration, which heals your limbs when exposed to radiation, you want to accumulate at least 600 rad points before visiting Moira for the cure. Complete other quests in the game to earn other secret perks.

Well thats the well rounded information I could come up with..
I hope this helps even more!!

When Zysin makes a guide, he does so with style! And to offer you something that you would otherwise have to pay 20 bucks for..

In this day and age you need not do such things.. Unless you know you want the book to put to your collection~

I can understand how a person would want the book for all the pictures and easy to follow directions and just the book to go along with the game.
I mean I would suggest anyone get the book, just for anything I have missed on here..
As there is so much that I have not even touched based upon..
Even with all this information, its not even close to getting to everything in this game!!!

There is sooo much to this game, that its going to take more than just me putting information and stuff down to this guide.
So everyone else thanks for your help!!!
You can contribute to this guide and make it your own!!!

I dont take any credit for this stuff.. I mean Im just saying what is already put out there. Its just the fact of the time spent researching and playing myself and then putting it all over here for you all to read and learn!!!
