Easy kills

Purchase or find the Anti-Material Rifle. Then, equip it with incendiary rounds. Target an enemy or enemies with it in VATS, then close VATS. You will not use any ammunition, but they will still be on fire and lose health. You will not aggro enemies or friendlies. Also, you will not lose Karma or Reputation with each kill. This glitch is very useful if you need to kill a NCR/Legion that has a weapon or item on them.

Easy stealing

Pick up an item by clicking the Right Analog-stick. You can then drag it anywhere desired (like out of the eyesight of the shopkeeper), and press A to add it to your inventory.

Skipping directly to the strip

In Camp McCarran, you can gain entry to the monorail that goes directly to the strip. Take the long way around, and stay as close to the vending machines as possible. Follow the wall around the back way. Make sure the other soldier has his back to you. Crouch and sneak up to this soldier. You may hear the phrase indicating that if you get any closer, they will have to shoot you. However, as long as you remain hidden, it should only flash "Detected" briefly a few times. As soon as you are close enough to the door, you can go through it and take a monorail directly to the strip. This may require a few attempts. Be careful when returning to the monorail from the strip, as you will probably be shot. However, as soon as you enter the monorail, it resets, and you can again ride it back to the strip again. By using this glitch, you can bypass many annoyances and quests, and skip directly to meeting Mr. House and finding the person who shot you.

Easy "Blast Mastery and Lead Dealer" Achievement or Trophy Guide

Recruit Lily Bowen as your partner. Her "Stealth Girl" perk allows your Stealth Boys to last 200% longer. Get two or three Stealth Boys. You will also need a corresponding powerful gun, energy weapon, melee weapon, or unarmed weapon. Note: Using a silenced weapon will lengthen the time required to earn "Lead Dealer", as your damage output will be lower. Consider using Pew Pew if you are trying to earn "Blast Mastery". After asking Lily to follow you, equip a powerful weapon but keep it hidden. Enter a crowded location, such as Vikki and Vance's casino in Primm, or King's School of Impersonation on the Strip. Have Lily remain outside or at the entrance of your selected location to prevent her from hitting people if you are detected. Save the game. Use a Stealth Boy and crouch. As long as you remain crouched, Lily will stay invisible. Begin attacking people in the back individually. If done correctly, they will not see you or get suspicious. This will also allow you to get more critical hits. After clearing out your location, have Lily follow you and go to another place and repeat the process. Reload your original save after earning "Lead Dealer" to get your expended resources back.

Easy "Artful Pocketer" Achievement or Trophy Guide

This trick can be done before or after you have cleared the quests in Nipton. Inside the Nipton General Store is an NPC named "Boxcar". Because the Legion has broken his legs, he cannot chase after you have picked his pocket, nor will he fight back. You can repeatedly enter and exit out of the general store if caught and place items in Boxcar's inventory, then steal them back until you have earned the achievement or trophy. If you do not want infamy with the Powder Gangers, create a new saved game before doing this trick.

Reddoheddo, Jan 21, 2016

Easy "Caravan Master" Achievement or Trophy Guide

While traveling the desert, purchase every 6, 10, Jack, and King you can. Kings double the card they are placed on. For example, if you start with a 10 and place a King on it, it becomes a 20. Then, place a 6 on top and that pile is done. Repeat the process for the other two piles. Jacks forces a player to discard whatever card it is placed on. You can use Jacks to delay your opponent or remove Kings that CPU may have put on your piles to set your count over 26. Other combinations to reach 26 within three cards also works well. For example, an 8, 9, and King. If your opponent seems to have a lot of face cards, skip them and find an easier challenge. Many traders will play Caravan if asked.

Easy "The Courier Who Broke the Bank" Achievement or Trophy Guide

The three casinos, Gomorrah, The Tops and Ultra-Luxe, will ban you from gambling at their tables after you reach a certain amount of winnings. The limit is 9,000 for Gomorrah, 10,000 for the Tops and 15,000 for Ultra-Luxe. Play as a character with very high Luck and play blackjack, which is affected greatly by that stat. You can usually double down safely on a 19 because the game is lenient. You can also play slots or roulette, which can give you much bigger wins at a less reliable rate.

Easy "Curios and Relics" Achievement or Trophy Guide

All weapons that have a "name" and not just a description are considered unique. A few that fit this category are as follows (in addition to many Prototypes or similar weapons).

  • Maria: Benny's 9mm gun.
  • Ghenna: A special flame sword that can be purchased at the Gunrunners arsenal.
  • Arianna: A rocket launcher carried by one of Tabitha's Supermutants.
  • Lucky: A .357 magnum revolver found in the safe in Primm.
  • One method is to reach at least level 20 and do the "Radio Black Mountain" quest. The Arianna can deal several hundred points of damage per shot.
  • If your character is skilled with close combat and you have between 10,000 and 20,000 spare bottlecaps (depending on your Barter skill), you can purchase Ghenna earlier in the game.
  • If you skilled with Laser and Plasma weapons, consider the "Q-35 Matter Modulator" found in Vault 22 to complete the task. The "AER14 prototype" laser gun found while completing the Brotherhood of Steel main quest when searching for the missing brothers can also be used.
  • Visit Gun Runners and purchase Esther (GRA) and some Mini Nukes. Then, find a location where a lot of enemies are grouped together, such as Black Mountain or Crashed Vertibird. Hit them with the Mini Nukes and Esther.

Most of the other unique weapons are not powerful enough to accumulate 10.000 damage.

Olivia751, Jan 21, 2016

Easy "Desert Survivalist" Achievement or Trophy Guide

  • Wasteland Omelettes are the food item that restores the most health. However when not at full health in Hardcore mode, you can eat as many health replenishing items as desired and they will qualify. After accumulating Wasteland Omelettes, find a location where you can drink as much water as desired. Damage yourself, then start eating. Do not eat too many in a single session or the food will make your water level rise to a fatal level. Note: The higher your Survival skill the less Wasteland Omelettes will be needed.
  • Go to The Gourmand in the Ultra-Luxe. Purchase all the food from the food supplier, who will get new stock each Wednesday and Sunday. Enter the Bathhouse in the same building and intentionally drown to drop your health. Eat all your food and repeat the process.

Afin09, Jan 21, 2016

Easy "Hardcore" Achievement or Trophy Guide

Do this while working for Ceasar's Legion, because they specialize in Unarmed and Melee and you will not need to carry a lot of ammunition. This is because ammunition has weight in Hardcore mode. Trying to earn "Hardcore" synergizes with earning Desert Survivalist as well. This is because you need to actually drink water to avoid dehydration, and the water also counts as food. Make sure you always have some water as well as food or Stimpaks.

Tadalya, Jan 21, 2016

Haakon, Jan 21, 2016

Easy "Master of the Arsenal" Achievement or Trophy Guide

Deal damage with any weapon with the GRA tag on its name. If you have the caps, you can do this quickly by first saving the game. Go to Gun Runners and purchase the Fat Man (GRA) and all the Mini-nukes (all the types) to the Automatron. Depending on your Barter skill, this may cost about 20,000 caps. Next, go somewhere with a large concentration of strong enemies such as the Strip, Camp McCarran, Camp Forlon Hope, The Fort, Vault 3 entrance, Brotherhood of Steel bunker, etc. Aim and fire your weapon at the ground with a parabolic trajectory. After the nuke hits the ground, a small mushroom cloud will kill everything within its radius. The more enemies caught in the blast, the more damage it does. Done correctly, this will result in 2,000 to 3,000 damage. Have Stimpacks and Rad-Away available to deal with the survivors. The explosion is heavily radioactive, and can also kill you if you are caught in it. Repeat the process as many times as needed. Note: Some Mini-nukes types are chronometred and will explode only after some time has passed. Others may resemble a scrap musket, firing multiple small fireballs. After "Master of the Arsenal" is earned, reload your saved game to avoid any unintended effects.

Easy "Pros Only" Achievement or Trophy Guide

There are five three-star challenges. Consider doing the following three to earn "Pros Only".

  • Armed for Bear: Level up Melee or Unarmed a lot, and take a perk which knocks enemies down. There are a lot of NCR troops around. If their title does not include "Private" or "Sergeant", they will count. The six Ranger stations have eleven of them. There are five in McCarran, four at the Dam, and three at the Outpost. It is easiest to go around the Ranger stations at a low level and kill them. Most settlements have at least one named NCR soldier. If you are Legion-aligned and male, you can kill a Ranger one-on-one in the arena. Any weapon , for example the machete, will work well.
  • Man-Machine Interface: Use any weapon skill you have leveled up, hunt robots. There are Mr. Gutsys scattered around the Mojave, including locations such as Nellis Air Force Base, New Vegas Steel (the Mr. Steel variants will qualify), and the house in Nipton with the prototype Gutsy. REPCONN Headquarters is also a very good place to farm kills. Setting off the alarm on each floor will spawn four Sentry Bots per floor. However, Sentry Bots are very durable and your weapon may break when used against them. Most of the Gutsy locations will respawn after three days.
  • Against All Tyrants: Almost all named Legion troops are at the Fort. It can be difficult to assault if you are low to mid level. A high Guns stat is required use the Service or Hunting Rifle effectively.Consider taking out Cottonwood Cove (four of them are there), then dealing with assorted Legion troops around the Wasteland. Named troops can be found in Nelson, Techatticup Mine, Red Rock Canyon and Camp McCarran. Note: Silus counts, but you must have a high NCR reputation to get in there with him, then bring him out to use one of the eligible weapons. Note that NPCs will not leave the Fort, even if angered.

The Ultimate Curier: Chapter 1 Weapon properties

  • Legend Damage: This information comes straight from the G.E.C.K. and shows the damage caused by a single click of the mouse / trigger. For most small guns, that's a single bullet, but for shotguns, it's a single shell (containing several small pellets), and for the Gatling laser it's a single beam. This stat is most useful for comparing semi-automatic weapons like rifles, where you can see the damage done by a single shot, regardless of how long it takes to load and fire the next one.
  • Damage per second: The maximum cyclic damage dealt in one second. Weapons that require a reload.
  • Rate of fire: The maximum number of shots / attacks per second, without considering reloading.
  • Spread: This is the Min Spread stat from the G.E.C.K. (the spread stat is not used). It refers to the accuracy of a ranged weapon. 0 means the weapon can potentially fire perfectly straight, if stance, weapon skill, and weapon condition are optimal. Anything above 0 means the shots may deviate from the center.
  • Critical chance multiplier: The multiplier applied to your character's critical hit chance. This modifier applies to each individual attack (make each 5mm round bullet fired from your minigun). For example, if your character has a critical hit chance of 5%, and the weapon you're using a CRIT% MULT of x2, then each shot has a 5% x 2 = 10% chance to critically hit. For automatic weapons (assault rifles, SMGs, miniguns, etc.) the Crit% Mult stat in the G.E.C.K. is divided by the G.E.C.K.'s Fire Rate stat, hence the very small multiplier for automatic weapons. This is done to compensate for the sheer number of bullets being fired. Note that single V.A.T.S. attack, with automatic weapons, only checks for critical hits.
  • Critical hit Damage: A critical strike. The more specialized Sneak Attack Critical deals twice the damage of a common critical strike.
  • Action Point cost: The number of Action Points used per shot in V.A.T.S.
  • Area of ​​effect: The blast radius of the explosion in units of measurement displayed in the G.E.C.K.
  • Durability: This is the maximum number of times a weapon can attack.
  • Ammunition used: The type of weapon used.
  • Assault carbine extended magazines - Magazine capacity: The maximum ammunition capacity of the weapon. Shots per reload: The maximum number of shots possible from a full magazine.
  • Weapon weight: Weight value of the weapon that applies to encumbrance.
  • Weapon value in caps: Base value of the weapon in caps. Resale value is affected by Barter skill.
  • Value to weight ratio: The ratio of the weight of the base caps.
  • Skill required: The weapon is not required.
  • Strength required: The strength required to use the weapon without penalty.

Monorail entry

In Camp McCarran where the monorail directly to the strip is located, you can gain entry to the monorail. Take the long way around and stay as close to the vending machines as possible. Follow the wall around the back way. Make sure the other soldier has his back to you. Crouch and sneak up to this soldier. You may hear the phrase indicating that if you get any closer they will have to shoot you. However, as long as you remain hidden, it may flash "Detected" briefly for a few times. As soon as you are close enough to the door, you can go through it and take a monorail directly to the strip. This may require a few attempts. Be careful when returning to the monorail from the strip. You will probably be shot. However as soon as you enter the monorail it resets, and you can again ride it back to the strip. By using this trick you can bypass many annoyances and quests, and can skip directly to meeting Mr. House and finding the person who shot you.

Then, ask "Who exactly are you, Mr. House?", then select "You appear to be a computer, not a man". After that, select the Medicine skill check response, "The lifespan you're claiming is impossible, except for ghouls and super mutants." After that, you will be awarded 35 experience points (or 39 experience points if you have the Swift Learner perk). You can repeat this as many times as desired.

In Guardian Peak you will meet an NCR soldier who is wounded. Through some Speech checks, you can get him to give you his gun for escorting him out of the cave that he is in. When you get to the entrance of the cave with him in tow, he will speak and you can continually ask for his rifle, which he will give you along with ammunition. Note: This is best done after earning the perk that allows for over encumbered fast travel.

Easy Kill

If you purchase or find the Anti-Material Rifle and then equip .50MG, Incendiary rounds. Equip both rifle and ammo and just target some one in VATS and then close VATS. They should catch on fire and lose some health. You can also select more then one person in VATS before closing it to burn more people using the right joystick. You will not aggro enemies or friendlies. Also you will not lose karma or Reputation twith each kill. Very useful if you need to kill a NCR/Legion with something you need on them.
