So Fallout and Fallout 2 were the fecal matter (as in, the shit). And, I mean that in a good way. I’ve been waiting for Fallout 3 for a long time. I’ve already pre-ordered the PC version. I heard it was like Oblivion with guns, and that can be a turnoff for some people, but as it turns out, I enjoyed Oblivion, and I like guns.
Anyway, it is no secret that the Xbox360 version of Fallout 3 has already leaked onto the internet. Reader, MyLittlePony, has sent us glitches/cheats that he/she has already discovered, along with a little video. Why he/she sent this to us, of all sites, is beyond me, but, here it is, anyway. We bring you the first look into some glitches, hints, and cheats:
Other Fallout 3 Cheats and Hints: (read more… )
- Easily Kill Robots out in the “Wastelands”:
Run up a steep hill, leaving the bot at the bottom, some of them can’t fire up at a steep enough angle, just shoot as you run up the hill.
- Easy caps (and a little experience):
Don’t throw away, sell, or pass by any books labeled “pre-war book” that you come by (not scorched or ruined books). At Arlington library, in the South-Eastern corner of the map, you can find a character that will buy each useless book off you for 100 caps, and you will get an additional 10 EXP for each book sold.
- (No big surprise, thank you, Oblivion) Easy Stealing, Hacking, and Speech Bonuses:
Before engaging in a dialogue with a speech bonus, hacking a computer, picking a lock, or pickpocketing, save your game. If you fail, you can always reload the save you just made and try again. This is especially useful with low-percent speech bonuses. For instance, when you are in Megaton for the first time, save before talking to Mr. Burke or the Sheriff about the bomb, and you can increase the quest reward from 100 caps to 500 with the speech bonus.
- INFINITE EXP:
For infinite experience in Fallout 3, you need to be at least level 10 and have the Sandman Perk. Sandman requires that you have at least a 60 rating in sneak. It allows you to silently kill people in their sleep with an added EXP bonus every time. So apparently, kids, or at least some kids, can’t be killed in the game. A good spot for this glitch is in a town in the South called, Andale. There are two kids, one in each of the two main houses that you can use this trick on. All you have to do, is use the wait function until it is about 1 AM. When everyone is asleep, sneak into a house, crouch, and use the Murder skill that comes with the Sandman Perk. USE ON THE CHILDREN ONLY. They won’t die, but you will still get the experience for killing them, allowing you to do the trick as much as you want. Best of all, using this murder trick has no effect on your Karma, and you will get 50 EXP every time, which is a lot in this game.
- INFINITE CAPS:
To get do this, you are going to need the item, “Naughty Nightware”. First, go to the Marigold Station, in Grayditch, in there, you will find an information kiosk/desk thing with a body and a holotape. Listen to it. It gives you directions on finding the item. It’s actually pretty funny. You need to explore the station until you find a section with a gate and a firehose station. Search inside the firehose box to find a key. Then continue to explore the tunnels until you find a room with a siren-like spinning light above it. Inside, you can use the key to open a safe. There, you will find the Naughty Nightware. You will then encounter someone who wants it back. Either kill him, or use the speech bonus option. Either way, don’t give it back.
Then you want to find a small town called Girdershade (way on the west side of the map and a little south, close to the entrance of Vault 112). Talk to Ronald Laren. He is not hard to find, there are only two people there. Sell him the Naughty Nightware for 200 caps. Now all you need to do is steal it back from him when he is not looking. Save before pickpocketing, incase you fail. Tak to him about the Naughty Nightware again, and you can sell it back for another 200 caps. He does not run out of caps, like other sales people in the game, so you can repeat as many times as you want. The only downside is that each time you steal, you will get negative karma.
INFINITE EXP 2:
This one you can do with a speech skill of at least 40. First you need to talk to Bittersharp in Big town. Then, go to the Common House in Big Town and find an NPC named Pappy. You will have a speech option of, “[Speech, 100%] You came here with bittercup, right?” You can select this option all you want for a steady stream of experience.
NOTE: MyLittlePony’s spelling and grammar was extensively edited to be readable. I spent a good 20 minutes translating their internet language for readability. but no tat i luv u, tho, MyLittlePony.
NOTE 2: We can’t personally confirm these, but MyLittlePony insists that these were tested on multiple Xbox 360s, and has provided a low-quality, low-reliability (Just like the writing on this site! Oh, snap, no he didn’t!) video of the infinite experience cheat being used (but seriously, our writing sucks… but keep reading, please).
NOTE3: We have no doubt that the video will be removed soon, so we included the text version, as well.
UPDATE: Infinite Caps cheat added.
UPDATE UPDATE: Another Infinite EXP Glitch added (Thanks Zoulpain)
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: Confirmed fixes made.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: Video re-uploaded.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE: These glitches have been fixed in patches for the most part. If you want to use these cheats, then I suggest that you refrain from updated thing game on PC, PS3, or Xbox.
