If you tried taking the easy way out of the upgrade achievements and didn't have the money to buy all of them. DON'T do the Infinite caps glitch at the Vikki and Vance casino again. You will delete your save. I learned this the hard way.

Oh well, guess I will just play through it again when a nuke/upgrade guide comes out.


Before anyone says. "Thats what you get for cheating."

If microsoft didn't want us to do this, they wouldn't let you delete updates.

If you want infinite caps/stimpacks do the Helios One glitch, very very easy to do. You'll also be level 30 by the time you're done.

That's patched too.

I did it before doing any DLC. I'm not sure if you can take the patches off and do it. I know with DLC installed it's hard, but you CAN delete the dlc, take the patches off and do it, then reinstall and update. A bit of work for inf caps/stims.

You don't need to cheat to do this.

1 - Loot everything up to the Mens Barracks In Hopeville
2 - Clear out the Barracks and Loot the whole Building
3 - Let ED-E unlock the Commisary there
4 - Save
5 - Buy the upgrades and sell your entire inventory to pay for it
6 - When you get the achievement, reload the save from before

Anyway if you did this after every other peice of DLC you should have more than enough to buy everything anyway, I did.

I didn't have any issues with this after getting kicked out of all the casinos and looting everything I could. I have over 100,000 caps. I do think the upgrades are expensive. But the weapon is worth 45,000 after upgrading.

There's really no reason to worry too much about this achievement. I went in with 60k caps, bought them all to put me down to about 25-30k, and by the time I finished I was up to 280k. Plenty of time to make the money you need to buy them, plus plenty of great loot.

Agreed! I only went in with 20-25,000 caps and after I would repair a weapon that I found then I would sell all duplicates. I used ED-E's inventory plus I was able to carry 280 lbs so I could take everything I found and sell to the commissary terminals. I bought all mods for Red Glare and the SMMG by the time I got to Third Street Municiple and left 10,000 caps richer.

I was broke, so I made a save, sold stuff till I got all 6000 caps. Waited 3 days, sold more stuff. Did it till I had about 36,000 caps. Bought the Mods. Got the achievement, reloaded my save. Not too worried about having the upgraded Red Glare ATM. Might get to it down the line.

And as for the whole losing DLC. That's why I made a different save, moved it to my memory stick and tried it. When I realized it took everything away. I reloaded the save on my stick and everything was back to normal.

I just picked up anything i could and sold it all at the commissary. I got all the upgrades and only spent about 2000 caps.

Got over 22,000 in caps and all 37 gold bars from the Sierra Madre DLC, hopefully this should suffice...

How'd you get all 37 Gold Bars out, I could only carry 4?

I think you just pick them all up and head for the elevator while Elijah is heading for the vault.

30k for the upgrades, right? That shouldn't be too hard unless there is some weird weight limitation. I didn't see one on the description from fallout.wikia but does Lonesome Road limit what you can bring in?

Please explain how this is possible and or what happens.
