Tricks and Glitchs (may contain spoilers)

"Other Fallout 3 Cheats and Hints: (read more… )
  • Easily Kill Robots out in the “Wastelands”:
Run up a steep hill, leaving the bot at the bottom, some of them can’t fire up at a steep enough angle, just shoot as you run up the hill.
  • Easy caps (and a little experience):
Don’t throw away, sell, or pass by any books labeled “pre-war book” that you come by (not scorched or ruined books). At Arlington library, in the South-Eastern corner of the map, you can find a character that will buy each useless book off you for 100 caps, and you will get an additional 10 EXP for each book sold.
  • (No big surprise, thank you, Oblivion) Easy Stealing, Hacking, and Speech Bonuses:
Before engaging in a dialogue with a speech bonus, hacking a computer, picking a lock, or pickpocketing, save your game. If you fail, you can always reload the save you just made and try again. This is especially useful with low-percent speech bonuses. For instance, when you are in Megaton for the first time, save before talking to Mr. Burke or the Sheriff about the bomb, and you can increase the quest reward from 100 caps to 500 with the speech bonus.
  • INFINITE EXP:
For infinite experience in Fallout 3, you need to be at least level 10 and have the Sandman Perk. Sandman requires that you have at least a 60 rating in sneak. It allows you to silently kill people in their sleep with an added EXP bonus every time. So apparently, kids, or at least some kids, can’t be killed in the game. A good spot for this glitch is in a town in the South called, Andale. There are two kids, one in each of the two main houses that you can use this trick on. All you have to do, is use the wait function until it is about 1 AM. When everyone is asleep, sneak into a house, crouch, and use the Murder skill that comes with the Sandman Perk. USE ON THE CHILDREN ONLY. They won’t die, but you will still get the experience for killing them, allowing you to do the trick as much as you want. Best of all, using this murder trick has no effect on your Karma, and you will get 50 EXP every time, which is a lot in this game.
  • INFINITE CAPS:
To get do this, you are going to need the item, “Naughty Nightware”. First, go to Northwest Seneca Station, north of Arefu, in there, you will find an information desk with a body and a holotape thing. Listen to it. It gives you directions on finding the item. It’s actually pretty funny. You need to explore the station until you find a section with a gate and a firehose station. Search inside the firehose box to find a key. Then continue to explore the tunnels until you find a room with a siren-like spinning light above it. Inside, you can use the key to open a safe. There, you will find the Naughty Nightware. You will then encounter someone who wants it back. Either kill him, or use the speech bonus option. Either way, don’t give it back.
Then you want to find a small town called Girdershade (way on the west side of the map and a little south, close to the entrance of Vault 112). Talk to Ronald Laren. He is not hard to find, there are only two people there. Sell him the Naughty Nightware for 200 caps. Now all you need to do is steal it back from him when he is not looking. Save before pickpocketing, incase you fail. Tak to him about the Naughty Nightware again, and you can sell it back for another 200 caps. He does not run out of caps, like other sales people in the game, so you can repeat as many times as you want. The only downside is that each time you steal, you will get negative karma.
INFINITE EXP 2:
This one you can do with a speech skill of at least 40. First you need to talk to Bittersharp in Big town. Then, go to the Common House in Big Town and find an NPC named Pappy. You will have a speech option of, “[Speech, 100%] You came here with bittercup, right?” You can select this option all you want for a steady stream of experience.
NOTE: MyLittlePony’s spelling and grammar was extensively edited to be readable. I spent a good 20 minutes translating their internet language for readability. but no tat i luv u, tho, MyLittlePony.
NOTE 2: We can’t personally confirm these, but MyLittlePony insists that these were tested on multiple Xbox 360s, and has provided a low-quality, low-reliability (Just like the writing on this site! Oh, snap, no he didn’t!) video of the infinite experience cheat being used (but seriously, our writing sucks… but keep reading, please).
NOTE3: We have no doubt that the video will be removed soon, so we included the text version, as well.
UPDATE: Infinite Caps cheat added.
UPDATE UPDATE: Another Infinite EXP Glitch added (Thanks Zoulpain)"

Nice work tho not really a glitch but if you play through the game as a good guy save just before you hit 8, 15 20 ( or what ever the achivements are) and nick stuff this gives you bad karma and no xp then lvl up and you can get all 3 achivements in one play through.

The easiest way to get the good Karma achieves is to play through the game as good as possible and the work your way to evil in different saves.

get your hands on lots of purified water (your robot butler can give you five every once in a whiler) then go to rivet city, and next to the top of the bridge there is a hobo, dying of thirst, keep giving him your purified water and you will get some good karma each time, you could also go to paradise falls and kill all the slavers and set the slaves free

If you own a house, your personal robotic butler will give you some purified water every 24hrs. So fill yourself up using the wait option and give the water to the bum outside megaton or rivet city. This may take a little while, but hey, what don't we do for the points?

Hmm... when I talked to Bittercup, I was nice, but I must've chosen the wrong option, because we ended up discussing her makeup...

This game IMHO is EPIC! Well I was going to try for all the achievements in one play through and accidentally deleted a level 12 save. I had a level 13 save but unfortunately was stuck inside Raven Rock at the time. I put many man hours into this game, and am very weary of playing it through again. I am now searching for the quickest ways to level to 14. I enjoyed this game, but I have several others to enjoy as well. I just want the 1000/1000 and be done with it.

So with that being said I am looking for the quickest way to 14 and I don't care how I get it. I got all the good karma achievements already, so maybe I can reach 13 neutral and drop down from there. I just don't want to spend 5 more hours doing it.

Any advice for starting out and leveling up fast? I can do sandman at 10, but remember I will leave the vault a 2!

Outside most cities you will find a guy wanting purified water, give it to him at no charge and your karma goes up and you don't gain experience. You can do this as much as you desire.

Here's a good way on dealing with the Karma Achievements:

1. Start a new game, and after you leave the Vault, make a save.

2. Do some things to get either Good Karma, Nuetral Karma, or Bad Karma. (Nuking Megaton would work for Bad Karma)

3. Go to the place where those children are and make another save. Do this glitch until you get your Karma Achievements.

4. Once you have received all of the Achievements on a set Karma path, reload your original save and work on your next Karma paths.

5. Repeat until all Karma Achievements are unlocked.

I thought of this after I read about this glitch. If they patch it when the game comes out, you could simply use that button combination (I forgot what it was.) and reset your 360's patch cache. Then, simply play offline to earn those Achievements.

To get good karma, just save up Purified Water all throughout the game, and give it to the guy outside the gate to Megaton. He will Ask you for some Purified water, and each 1 you give him will give you good karma.

the same goes for scrap metal, just save it up and give it to the guy in the processing plant for no charge. Just make sure you only have one on you at a time, drop them next to you before you speak to him until there is only one in your inventory or you will give it all away for only one point.

Good thinking Axe, but Mister Sandman requires level 10 so you can't do it immediately after a new game. Get Speech 40 and doing the second XP glitch would work though.

Yeah, I realized that long after I posted.

Have you tried glitch #2? When I get the game, I'm going to do that immediately for easy Karma Achievements, but does it work exactly as the guy said it would?

what i done was

get to level 7 as good guy saved
get to level 13 as good guy saved
get to level 19 as good guy saved

once i got the three good karma ones i loaded up my level 7 and stole and murdered till neutral then saved finished a few missions too get to level 8 and loaded up neutral level 7 and stole and murdered more till evil do missions then when it comes to the other just do the same but do the sandman glitch jobdone

its much easier too go from good to bad without getting too much exp than too go from bad too good.

Okay I lvled a new character to lvl 20 using first the XP #2 glitch to lvl 10; then I switched to the first one. When I started doing the glitch I was almost to lvl 3 and it took me 1350 speech successes to get to lvl 10. Only 5xp a time, and if you put your speech to just 40 your percent is 50%; so your thumb is gonna get tired, took me a long time to get to lvl 10. You get 50 xp per sandman kill and its a lot less tiring but you have to watch the sandman kill animation and that takes about 5 secs each time so it still takes awhile. I would estimate 3.5-5 hours total time to get to lvl 20. I kept taking breaks so I'm not exactly sure but its not gonna be quick. Just a heads up to anyone thinking about trying this.
