Fallout 3

Fallout 3 Achievements

Psychotic Prankster

Placed a grenade or mine while pickpocketing  

Note: Save before attempting this achievement.

When crouching you are able to attempt to steal from someone's pockets. While in the inventory screen, move a grenade or mine from your side to theirs. Once you leave the screen, the grenade or mine you planted will explode and kill them. I would suggest reloading your save after getting the achievement if you did this in a city as the entire city will probably now hate you.

I agree with #1, great achievement, well thought of and creative and there should definitely be more like it. Maybe in Fallout: New Vegas.

I did it on the sheriff, Lucas Simms, of Megaton and blew both his legs off, then took his hat and went on a killing spree with my Combat Shotgun and Chinese Assualt Rifle. It was was awesome.

I talked to Mr. Burke, reported him to Simms, then when Simms confronted him I place the mine on Burke and he exploded after about two seconds. Made me want to laugh lol.

This achievement was so easy. So easy that I was thinking about getting every achievement except this one and say it's too hard

I have to agree. They just need to add SPLAT across the screen in light blue letters :)

Lots of fun. Doing 2nd playthrough to get missing achievements. Didn't have this or Galaxy Quest so as soon as I finished Galaxy Quest I snuck behind Three Dog who is sitting against a pillar, crouched to stay hidden, dropped the frag in pocket, shuffled directlly behind pillar, and BOOOOM! Three Dog went everywhere. Hhaha.

I wanted to do this to a super mutant, but apparently you can't pickpocket them. I'd guess I'll try for a raider or something now.

Creative achievement I must say, it differs a lot in comparison to the other achievements.
