Early detection

When wandering around in the world or towns, use the following trick to get an early heads up on enemies, encounters, or learn who is nearby. Keep tapping [V.A.T.S.] while searching at all angles. If there is something out there, you will get the V.A.T.S. zoom in with a low score. You will at least know what is there and can figure out a plan of attack or how best to sneak around it.

Lock picking

Use the following trick to avoid breaking bobby pins when trying to pick a lock. Just before the bobby pin is going to break, exit that screen then go back. You will save a lot of bobby pins by doing this. This also works when trying to get a password for computers.

Game Easter Eggs

Fear Factory

Enter the museum, and examine the notice on the wall terminal to the far right. The text is about a virus infecting their Archetype, and at the end it repeats parts of the song "Archetype" by Fear Factory: "the infection has been removed, the soul of this machine has improved".

Brahmin Tipping

If you come upon a Brahmin anywhere in the wasteland (a Brahmin, not a pack Brahmin) you can crouch and hit the interact button to tip the Brahmin over.

Tommy James And The Shondells

At Paradise Falls are two slaves around Eulogy's Pad named Crimson and Clover. They are Eulogy Jones' bodyguards. This is a reference to a song by Tommy James And The Shondells called "Crimson And Clover".

CheatFreak, Dec 3, 2008

Snatchers reference

One area in Minefield is a reference to the Hideo Kojima game, "Snatcher." A decapitated body sitting with its head between its legs can be found with a note in it that says "SEARCH THE HOUSE". This is identical to a scene in "Snatcher." The "Gillian's House" also refers to "Gillian Seed," the protagonist of Snatcher. 'Benson' (the name of another residence) is also the name of two characters from the game snatcher..

Game Glitches

Floating Brahim

Go to Megaton, as you go down the slope, there will be a Brahim on the right. Crouch up beside it, but make sure it has seen you (if it doesnt know you are there, it wont work)

Press action on it repeatedly. You will be pushing it. It will suddenly float up in the air, as it is been pushed onto the ramp to the medicine centre
the banister is acctually a few inches below the brahims feet it will be able to turn around and walk slightly eventually it will fall off.
