Fallout: New Vegas - Lonesome Road Achievement Guide and Roadmap


-Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10
-Offline: 5 (125http://www.x360a.org/images/misc/g-icon.gif)
-Online: 0 (0http://www.x360a.org/images/misc/g-icon.gif)
-Approximate amount of time to 140http://www.x360a.org/images/misc/g-icon.gif: 4-6 hours
-Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
-Number of missable achievements: None
-Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats
-Does difficulty affect achievements?: No
-Glitchy achievements: None
-Unobtainable achievements: None

Playthrough 1:
Very straight forward, just play through the addon and keep an eye peeled for Warheads and sparking Eyebots for circuit board upgrades. If executed properly the achievements will unlock as follows: Rocket's Red Glare, Condemned to repeat it, ED-Ecated, Warhead Hunter, and finally Hometown Hero.

None of the achievements are missable, although some Warheads/Upgrades may be annoying to return to if you miss them. In general this is a very simple addon to get 100% gamerscore on.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1026/UPwJUog=.jpgEd-Ecated - 20:gsicon:
Find all of ED-E's upgrades in the Divide.

Almost right off the bat your old friend ED-E (well a clone of sorts) will join your party. Throughout the course of the Lonesome Road you will come across sparking/damage Eyebots on the ground that you can search for circuit board upgrades for your companion. Find all 5 of these upgrades for the achievement.

Four6Eleven put together a very straight forward video for finding each of these Eyebots easily.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1026/UPv-qpY=.jpgCondemned to repeat it - 20:gsicon:
Decide the fate of all the Divide Dwellers.

This is a quest related achievement and can't be avoided. Once you reach the far side of the High Road you will find yourself at a missile control panel, which you must use in order to get this achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1026/UPofUgU=.jpgHometown Hero - 30:gsicon:
Complete Lonesome Road.

The finale of the game takes place in Ulysses' Temple and just consists of having yet another conversation with him, followed by defending yourself from a few waves of Marked Men and finally deciding what to do with the nukes. There are a number of options for targeting the nukes, or stopping them entirely and once you decide which ending you want and the end summary starts to roll the achievement will pop.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1026/UPg+W7A=.jpgRocket's Red Glare - 25:gsicon:
Acquire all upgrades for the Divide's signature weapon

Divide's signature weapon is Red Glare, which can be found on numerous corpses throughout the duration of the addon, or you can pick one up right next to the laser detonator for the warheads. In order to upgrade this you will need to head to a commissary (shop in a machine in the wall that ED-E will activate whenever you come across one. Closest one to this Red Glare location is the Men's bunkhouse just to the SW) and purchase the 3 required Red Glare ________ mods. You don't need to put them on the launcher, however, and if you want to keep your money instead of use the rocket launcher simply save your game and then purchase the upgrades one by one until you have all 3 (will require you to leave and return to the shop after you sell 6000 caps worth of stuff as that is all the money they carry, but they will reset when you return if you go over the 6000 caps). All 3 cost roughly 36k total~ with some points in Barter so you may or may not have to sell some of your equipped gear. Once you have all 3 and the achievement pops, feel free to reload your save and get your equipment back while losing the upgrades (but not the achievement).

Note: I feel like these should drop somewhere too but no matter how hard I looked I couldn't find any of them. If anyone could confirm or deny this that'd be great.

Edit: One mod has been found in Courier's mile.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1026/UP4oWz0=.jpgWarhead Hunter - 30:gsicon:
Detonate all of the warheads in the Divide.

Once you get the laser detonator you can detonate all of the 30 warheads throughout the Divide. Some are required for quest progression, some take some searching to find. In all cases, stand back a ways and (with the detonator equipped) hold the trigger down while pointing the laser at the warhead and the warhead will begin to turn white and eventually blow up.

A concise guide to finding all of the warheads can be found here:

What do you do at the end with disabling the eyebots if you dont have the required skills? (Science and Repair).

Wait the guide say's you can't return once you finish Lonesome Road, but you can. You are free to enter and leave however much you like, that's what I did to finish the ED-E upgrades and Nuke locations.

In Courier's Mile there was one of the upgrades for the Red Glare. BUT you'd want the upgrade before going in there anyways. Not to mention they are extremely easy to get from the start just need 40k-50k in caps.

Do you happen to recall which upgrade and/or where? I'm sure you would have said it if you did, just checking though :p Thanks for the info.

and Evokazz..I'm not sure what you mean? The eyebots for the upgrades are already disabled and only require you to search them (or am I wrong, no stats come up for me though).

LOL, No, I meant the final battle, but I figured out if you dont have the required skill, you can steal Ulyssis weapon and hit the console with that.

-Number of missable achievements: Yes (upon finishing the Lonesome Road you cannot return, make sure all achievements are up to speed before entering Ulysses Temple)
This is wrong. It even says right at the start of the dlc you can leave and re-enter anytime you want.

The name of this achievement is "Hometown Hero". :p

Well there is one (kind of) missable achievement. One of ED-E's upgrades is concealed by a door with no key (possibly, but I've looked hard) and you need a science skill of 75 to unlock it. So if anyone can confirm that there is no key to that door or password to the terminal then "ED-Ecated" is a missable achievement.

You make a good point, but since you can enter and leave The Divide freely, there's no real missable achievement. If your science isn't high enough by the time you need to hack the computer, then go back to the Mojave, level up some, and return to open the door. Or just spend a few minutes in The Divide leveling up. There's a ton of xp to be had.

edit: I thought about that some more and figured that you could technically miss the achievement by failing the hack and locking yourself out of the computer and therefore the room. Hopefully though, none of us would let ourselves do something like that...

^ I agree but what if you're already maxed out at level 50? I doubt the gun runners dlc will have a level cap. For an example, my survival skill is 28 and if there's a trophy that requires me to have a level 75 survival, then i'd be fucked and then i would have to make a new file. Well good think I noticed that there was no key early because I put all my level up points to science and I barley made it at 73 science skill.

If you get locked out of a terminal there is a perk for that.

Yes but you can avoid being locked out of a terminal the same way as in Fallout 3, if you only have one guess left and are gonna fail just exit the terminal and retry, it resets the mini-game so you never get locked out.
Same with Lockpicking, never force a lock and you can just retry again and again making both those perks a waste.

Hi everyone!

Excuse me for my English, I'm french, but be sure I'm trying to do my best.

Despite the video, I can't find the last upgrade for ED-E. I think it's because I didn't unlock the place shown on the map.

Does anyone can explain me how to go there? I've been looking for it for 1 hour! I suppose it's when we have to go downstairs on the roof of the hotel...

Thank you for your answers and for this very helpful guide! :)



EDIT: It's OK, I found it. The entrance of the pipe is in the 2nd floor of a building in the large zone where there are Deathclaws.

DOH! >.< Well at least it's on the list..for whatever reason, that achievement as a whole, among some minor things didn't make it into my first post despite being in the preview post. Thanks :)

And thanks Cheevo, added the video to the guide.

Good guide man. Helped me out with a few of the Warheads. Still have a few more to go, but I was wondering.

In Courier's Mile there was one of the upgrades for the Red Glare. BUT you'd want the upgrade before going in there anyways. Not to mention they are extremely easy to get from the start just need 40k-50k in caps.

Where exactly is this Mod that's in Courier's Mile? I've scoured over every possible inch of that place and never found it. Unless I just happened to look over it.

I got the Mod chievo simply by bringing along all the "Pre-War" money I got from the Sierra Merde casino in dead money, if you earn enough to get banned from that casino you will get approx 14,000 get which sell for 6-9 caps each, easily enough to "swap" for the mods at the first shop you get to in lonesome road. Then I installed them onto the first Red Glare I found and had a weapon that could at least dent the Deathclaws HP without using half of my armory.

After watching the video over and over I was always 1 Nuke short. Then I counted them and the guy missing is the one high up above Ulysses's Temple entrance.

If you are near the last pool of water and look up the canyon wall down the Canyon a bit it's on the left side.

hi there,
i found the locations for the "Rockets Red Glare" Achievement on the fallout wiki site, which maybe helps finding them all instead of buying them expensive:



On the body of a Marked men hunter in the Marked men camp.
On the top floor of the Marked men camp building, behind the hunter carrying one and across from the laser detonator.

I wonder how it is a 4/10 with the enemies at your level. The deathclaws alone make this DLC difficult.

Then again it depends on the difficulty.
