View Full Version : Money glitch/Barter achievement

10-20-2010, 06:06 PM
The same money glitch from Fallout 3 still works. If you want an easy way to get caps and the "You Run Barter Town" achievement, use that. I'm not really good at explaining how to do it. A good explanation is on IGN. Or if someone can post it here that would be great.

Is there something terribly hard about you copying and pasting it from IGN into your topic? Seriously, if you really want to help people you'd at least try explaining or C&P from IGN instead of making a pretty redundant topic.

You must bring nothing with you, Just do the glitch with what ever the shop keeper has on hand. It works 100% of the time with a laser pistol, combat armor, and leather armor. Go to a shop keeper and look at there items. See if they have 2 laser pistols, or combat armor, or leather armor. Now buy the cheaper of the two same items. Sell back the one you bought, Buy back the cheap one again, sell it back, buy it again, sell it back. buy it again, sell it back, buy it again. That is all there is to it. This works 100% of the time,

Read the comments from the 144+ people that have posted comments saying that this works great, You must be doing something wrong if it's not working for you, And yes this worked before all DLC/updates and yes it still works after all the latest DLC/updates. So keep trying tell you get it, Because it does indeed work lol.

This glitch will allow you to get an item repaired to 100% for free and it will also allow you to make free caps and ammo as long as you have no items and the shop keeper has two of the same item (same condition is not required).

1. Go to a shop keeper and trade with them

2. Make sure the shopkeeper has two of the same item (weapon, armor, helmets, clothing).

3. Buy the cheaper of the 2 same items (nothing happens the first few time)

4. Sell the same item back to shopkeeper and then buy it back again

5. When you buy the item back you will notice that for you, it is fully repaired. (If it is only partially repaired, repeat step 4 until it is fully repaired).

You can now sell the fully repaired item back for a price that is higher than the price you bought it for. It will remain the same condition and price as when you first bought it in the shop keeper's inventory, but will be fully repaired and worth more when it is in your inventory. The reason the repair is free is because you can repeatedly buy and sell the item for a profit, negating the initial loss of caps that you encounter when you first buy it back.

Say laser pistol "A" is 24 caps but laser pistol "B" is 300 caps. You are now making a profit of 276 caps every time you sell it. Even so you are buying the laser pistol for the price of 24 caps you are selling it for 300 caps and making money. To take this one step further, You now take the caps you just got from the shop keeper and use them to buy any items you might want like health items and ammo. Now keep buying and selling the laser pistol back and forth like before tell you get all your caps back.

When the shop keeper runs out of caps, ammo or any other item you might want, Just hit the back button and wait 4 days (Right there in the Shop) and the shop keeper will now get all there items and caps back again. Repeat all the above steps all over again as many times as you like or need. In one hour time I made 50000 caps and had 5000 rounds of each ammo type. And that is how you get a unlimited amount of Caps and Ammo.
