should be able to start the "That Lucky Old Sun" mission. Proceed with
the mission, and talk to Fantastic and Ignacio Rivas. While talking to
Rivas, make sure you get him to reveal that he is a Follower of the
Apocalypse by using Speech or Confirmed Bachelor, and agree with his

Configure the Power Grid to "5. Full Region (Emergency Output Level)".
Finish the mission by hitting the Reflector Control Panel outside on top
of the tower. Go back to Ignacio Rivas, and choose the "I overloaded the
plant. No one....." option. That option will never disappear. Keep
selecting that option to get 350 XP <#>, 3 Stimpacks, and 2 Doctor's Bags.
If your Speech skill level is 50 or higher, you can persuade Old Ben to
offer his escort services to the local bar. You will get 61 XP each time
you complete this Speech Challenge. If you follow him back to the bar
afterwards and wait until he sits down, you can speak to him again and
repeat the same Speech Challenge as many times as desired. You can find
Old Ben sitting by a fire close to The King headquarters in Freeside.
This glitch requires a high Speech skill level and 8 Intelligence skill
level. Go to the Camp McCarran Terminal building inside Camp McCarran.
Talk to the guy at the far end of the building, in the left corner. He
is the leader and gives you multiple quests. Accept the interrogation
quest, then go meet the woman upstairs to start the quest. When you get
in the room to talk to Sirus, pick the "Intelligence" option first, the
"Speech" option next, and then the "Intelligence" option. Any of the
three "Intelligence" options work. Then, select the "Speech" option
(which should now be grayed out), and cycle through the "Intelligence"
options. You will get 50 XP every time you cycle through the options.
Go to Vault 11, and you will get a 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 "sacrificial 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 three options, "Override" and "Download" for two conversations.
Select the second download to get 500 XP. Do not exit the mainframe.
Just keep selecting that option to get 500 XP each time. Repeat this as

the southeast corner of the map alongside the river). You will meet a
man named Aurelius of Phoenix (he sometimes wanders out of the camp).

option to get 35 XP each time. Repeat this as many times as desired.

the main strip, find Victor outside the Lucky 38 Casino <#>. He will
tell you that Mr. House wants to meet you. Follow him inside, and go up
the elevator. Speak with Mr. House (the giant television face that looks
like Howard Hughes). Find the dialogue choice pertaining to needing to
ask him a few questions. Then, ask "Who exactly are you, Mr. House?",
and choose "You appear to be a computer, not a man". Next, select the
Medicine skill check response, "The lifespan you're claiming is
impossible, except for ghouls and super mutants." You will then get 35
XP (or 39 XP if you have the Swift Learner perk). You can repeat this as
many times as desired.
Gamble in a casino, and play roulette. You will get 100 XP no matter if
you win or lose.
Go to the town of Primm, and successfully complete the "My Kind Of Town"
quest to get them a new sheriff. Wait 3 to 7 in game days for the Vikki
and Vance Casino to open again in Primm. Then, go to the Vikki and Vance
Casino, and either win as many chips as possible from gambling or
exchange as many caps for chips as possible. Go to the cash register to
trade the chips in for caps. You will get the equivalent for the chips
in caps, but you will still retain all your chips. Simply keep trading
in the chips for caps to get as many caps as desired. *Note:* This
glitch was done on an unpatched version of the game.
Go to a weapons and/or armor merchant, and see if he has two of the same
weapon or armor for sale. If you can afford it, get the overall most
expensive item at the lowest condition. For instance, if he has two
Raider Sadist Armors at 45% and 76$, but also has two Flamers at 20% and
8%, then choose the Flamers. Purchase the cheapest of the two items, and
then immediately sell it back to the merchant. Buy it again, and sell it
back to them again. Usually the second, but sometimes the third time,
you buy the same item from them, and it will appear in your inventory at
100% condition. Sell it back to them, and it will reappear in their
inventory at the original low % condition. Buy it again, and it will
appear at 100% condition. Repeat this until they have no more caps. If
you wait three days after they run out of caps, they will have new stock
and approximately 650 caps. The longer you wait, the more robust their
inventory will be and the more caps they will have. *Note:* This glitch
can cause the game to freeze. It is recommended you save your game often
when doing this just in case the game freezes.
Successfully complete the "Wang Dang Automatic Tango" quest to find
Fisto, a Sexbot. Then, go to Silver Rush Casino, and talk with Fisto
next to the roulette table. He will offer his services. Choose the "No
thanks" response to get 10 caps. You can keep selecting this answer as
many times as desired to get 10 caps each time.
If you lose in any of the gambling games and then reload your saved
game, the game will force you to wait 30 seconds to prevent you from
cheating. However, there is a way around it. When you are at the slot
machines, do not exit slot machine mode to reload your game when you
lose. Instead, once the wheel stops spinning and your results are shown,
pause the game and reload your saved game. As long as you do not exit
slot machine mode before reloading, you will not be forced to wait 30
seconds after reloading. To make easy money, try the slot machine at its
maximum of 200 tokens. Never try more than twice at a time. If you lose
both spins, just reload your saved game. If you win one of the two
times, save your game and continue. *Note:* This glitch was done on an
unpatched version of the game.
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 keep asking him for his
rifle, which he will give you along with ammunition. *Note:* This is
best done after getting the perk that allows for over encumbered fast
Go to Old Mormon Fort in Freeside. Find Julie Farkes inside the Fort.
Choose the dialogue option to help them get medical supplies. Go through
the dialogue options to hear one that tells you that she just got a
shipment of magazines. Then, choose the "I have some medical supplies to
drop off" option. There will then be three options; choose the
"Rad-Away" option, as it is the easiest one of the three to find. You
only need to leave one thing if you do not care about fame. Every time
you give them something, you will gain more fame. After you give them
the supplies, choose the "I'd like to buy medical supplies" option.
There are a few aid supplies there that you can get if desired, but they
will not regenerate. In the supply list, you can find the magazines. Buy
any desired magazines, and then exit. You can then choose the option to
give med supplies again. This time you do not need to give them
anything; simply choose the "Never mind" option. Go back to "Buy medical
supplies", and you can repeat the process for more magazines. You repeat
this as many times as desired as long as you choose to drop off supplies
first. You can even come back to do it again at a later time. You can
get the following magazines: Fix-in' Things (Repair +10), Lad's Life
(Survival +10), Meeting People (Speech +10), Programmer's Digest
(Science +10), Salesman Weekly (Barter +10), and Today's Physician
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. *Note:*
This glitch was done on an unpatched version of the game.
Find a place to hide that is out of the line of sight of all surrounding
NPC's, and save the game <#>. Then, pick up an item by pressing R3, and
drag it to your hiding spot. Once it says you are "hidden", press X to
add it to your inventory. If you lose any Karma, reload your saved game,
and try again. A good place to do this trick at is Gloria Van Graff's
energy weapons shop in Silver Rush, Freeside. You can do this with any
of the items on the counter, and there is a hiding spot on the back side
of the room.
