TrophyHow to unlock

When your Speech is at 40, go to Camp Golf, by Lake Las Vegas. Accept the quest from the sergeant. Agree to O'Hanran's method and convince everyone, with Mags being the last. After convincing Mags to play nice, accept her method and go to the gun range. Help them with their guns (45 skill required), and wait for them to start walking back to their tent. Talk to Razz and ask about squadmates. The speech challenge should still be there. You can easily unlock the "Outstanding Orator" trophy, as well as experience points in increments of 40. When you are done, talk to the sergeant to complete the quest or talk to O'Hanran and ask about the squad. Note: You have the option of helping them with explosives after the guns.

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 travel.

This glitch requires a 30 Speech skill level and neutral or friendly with NCR. Go to Camp McCarran, and talk to Sergeant Bitter-Root. You should be able to find him in one of the tents. Ask him about his name, and then there will be an option for a 30 Speech skill level attempt. You can keep saying "Bitter-Root. You have an unusual name.", and each time you say it, you can do the Speech attempt again. Simply say "Bitter-Root. You have an unusual name.", do the Speech attempt, ask to talk about something else, and then repeat the process as many times as desired.

This glitch requires a 30 Speech skill level or the "Confirmed Bachelor" perk and friendly with NCR. Go to HELIOS One, and the woman should automatically talk to you. Once she allows you access to HELIOS One, you 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 ideals about peace or say you are neutral. Do the mission regularly until you get to the point where you activate the Mainframe Terminal. 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 many times as desired.

This glitch requires a 35 Barter skill level. Go to Cottonwood Cove (in 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). Speak to him, and choose to barter with his camp for ammunition and supplies. Select this option will get you 35 XP. Keep selecting that option to get 35 XP each time. Repeat this as many times as desired.

This glitch requires a 35 Medicine skill level. Once you gain access to 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.

Gamble in a casino and play roulette. No matter if you win or lose, you will gain 100 experience points.

Save the game before starting a dialogue with a Speech bonus, hacking a computer, lock picking, or pick pocketing. Then, simply reload the game if you fail the challenge.

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.

This glitch requires a 20 Speech skill level. Talk to the 10 of Spades in Camp McCarren. You may first need to find out about Corporal Betsy's trauma. Start a dialogue with him, and select "I heard about what happened to Corporal Betsy", then "Tell me what happened". The next options will be the Speech Check or "If you were unconscious, how could you have done anything?" Do the Speech Check, and then the other option will be the only one available except "Never mind". After you select the unconscious option, the Speech Check will be available again, but grayed out. However, you can still keep pressing X, and they will alternate. Even though the Speech Check is grayed out, it still counts as a pass.

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.

Use the .50 machine gun incendiary ammunition on the anti-materiel rifle. Target an enemy with V.A.T.S. The enemy will catch on fire, even if you do not fire the weapon.

You can locate the field "gun" for the ARCHIMEDES weapon by entering the Freeside's East Gate and locating the two children chasing each other (not chasing the mutated rat) during daylight. Talk to the one possessing what appears to be a toy gun. You can purchase the gun for 1,000 caps or 20 caps with Barter at level 45 or greater. To use the weapon you must supply the power to ARCHIMEDES II during the "That Lucky Old Sun" mission.

By using this method, it is possible to repair any and all items to the player's current repair level without using any of you caps. To do this you, need the Confirmed Bachelor perk and enough caps to cover the repair cost of the item. When you arrive at the Mohave Outpost to get the pardon for the new sheriff of Primm, during the conversation with Major Knight a Confirmed Bachelor speech option is available. Select it, and whenever you do repairs through him, the item gets repaired to your repair level but the caps do not get deducted from your stockpile. This can be very useful when combined with any unlimited caps trick, and results in your player having all items at 100% condition (even things like the Fat Man, where replacement parts are difficult to find).

Go south on the road out of Goodsprings. After about 100 yards you will find a refrigerator at the base of a hill. There is a skeleton wearing a fedora inside.

If your speech skill at 50 or higher, you can persuade Old Ben to offer his escort services to the local bar, if you succeed in the Speech Challenge, you'll gain 61 XP. If you follow him back to the bar afterwards and wait until he sits down, you can speak to him again and redo the same Speech Challenge over and over again for infinite XP! You can find Old Ben sitting by a fire close to The King's headquarters in Freeside.

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 (Medical -10).

You'll need to have a speech skill level of 50 or higher before attempting this trick. Approach Old Ben who sits by a fire near the King headquarters in Freeside. Persuade him to escort you to the local bar. For beating the Speech Challenge you'll get 61 XP. Follow him back to the bar and let him sit down. Speak to him again and you can do the Speech Challenge infinitely for unlimited XP.

Aftr reaching the sacrificial chamber and dispatching the robots go to the computer terminal through the previousley closed wall and enter it. The bottom option can be pressed over and over again to gain 500 XP each time. If any of the other options are chosen or the terminal is exited you cannot use the exploit again.

Get a large object that you can push or pick up. Drop it next to a standing NPC that is not leaning against a wall, doing push-ups, or sitting. Run against the object and it will damage the NPC without becoming them becoming hostile or you losing reputation. Repeat this until the target is dead. Note: You may take some damage, and the object may fly away.

Every Skill has a designated skill book. One seems to be missing. There seems to be only three explosive skill books where there are supposed to be four. This last skill book can be found on the desk in the office of the "Ranger Station Foxtrot". The other three can be found in "Nellis Air Force Base", "Sloan", and "Mojave Outpost".

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.

The Globe Trotter Trophy requires you to collect seven Snow Globes in New Vegas. Here are the locations of all seven.

Goodsprings
Goodsprings Cemetery / Near the water tower is a patch of upturned soil by a small, rectangular grave marker. The Snow Globe is sitting in front of the marker.

Hoover Dam
Hoover Dam / Search the visitor center for a terminal near two curved desks. The Snow Globe can be found on a desk here.

Mormon Fort
Old Mormon Fort / Julie Farkas has an office inside a tower at the fort. The Snow Globe is on top of a bookcase here.

Mt. Charleston Snow Globe
Jacobstown / In the lodge, search the entrance and reception area. This Snow Globe is sitting on a curved desk by some terminals.

Nellis AFB
Nellis Air Force Base / Pete's makeshift museum holds this Snow Globe. It's on a table in the corner under a mural.

Test Site
Lucky 38 Casino / Head to the cocktail lounge and look for the cash register. It's across from the entrance. The Snow Globe is behind the register.

The Strip
Vault 21 / After you access Sarah's locked bedroom, grab this Snow Globe off of the table between the two beds.

Go to the town of Nipton. Walk to the right of the town hall's front entrance to find a burned out building, with a pair of burned corpses in front. The view resembles the scene from Star Wars where Luke Skywalker finds the bodies of his Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen.

When you want to steal something and it is in the owner's direct line of sight, use the Grab function and drag it around a corner. Use sneak to make sure that you are now hidden from their view. You can now steal the object without fear of retaliation. You will still lose karma but they will not try to kill you.

When you have more than one type of ammunition for a gun (for example, 9mm or 9mm hollow point), press Up and your character will switch ammo types for that weapon.

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.

Note: This requires the unpatched version of the game. Begin going through the storyline, once you get to Prim and complete the quest there, leave for awhile and return. You will be able to gamble. In order to gamble you must purchase chips. Go to the cashier at the Vikki & Vance Casino. Purchase as many chips as possible with any of the three types of money (Caps, NCR, and Legionaries). Once you have the chips, save the game normally (not by auto-save). Note: Each chip is worth one cap, so you can trade all the chips back for a full refund if needed. Once your game is saved, talk to the cashier again and select the fourth option (something similar to "Cash in my chips"). She will ask what form of payment you want. Pick any option desired, then quickly exit the conversation. This should have given you as much of the form of money you requested that equals to chips. Caps are 1 chip to 1 cap. NCR are 8 chips to $20 and 40 chips to $100, and Legionaries are 4 chips to one Denarius, 20 chips for a Dalhali, and 100 chips for a Aureus. Once you have exited the conversation, check your inventory. You should have the money and the chips still in your possession. Talk to the cashier and repeat the trick. If you want to get higher amounts at a time, do the trick with caps a few times, then buy 1,000 chips for 1,000 caps about five or six times.

After completing the Sexbot quest, go to the atomic wrangler and talk to Fisto. Choose the "Maybe later" response to get 10 caps. You can continue to do this as many times as desired. With enough time and patience you can accumulate a large amount of caps.

Go to any salesman and press Select. Wait one hour to force an auto save. Go the "Memory" option in the system menu, then select "Hard Drive" and find the auto save file. Copy it to a memory card. Go to your memory card and copy it back to the hard drive. Load the game and start. You should be at the salesman. Do not buy or sell anything yet. Wait one hour to force another auto save. Quit and start the game again. Sell or buy anything. Wait one hour, quit, and start over. The salesman's inventory and money will have reset. Repeat the process as many times as desired.

Note: This requires at least a 35 Medicine skill. Once your character gains access to 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?", 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.

This trick yields unlimited experience, Stimpacks and doctor's bags. Get access to Helios One Power Station and have the quest "That Lucky Old Sun". When you have the option to choose how to reroute the power, select to do full region (emergency output level). Go out and re-aim the solar array panels, then return to Ignacio. Tell him you overpowered the station. He will reward you with 350 experience points, three Stimpacks, and two doctor's bags. The option will remain in place allowing you to do this repeatedly as many times as desired.

Upon meeting Mr. House the first time, in "The House Always Wins, I" mission, he will ask you to get his chip. If you have 50 Barter when he tells you the deal is 1,000 caps, refuse it. Keep refusing his offers after bartering until he tells you to come back. After you talk to him again, select the following choices: "Tell me your terms again?", then the Barter 50 choice "The chip is worth far more than that", then "Still not interested", and repeat.
