    Silver Rush in Freeside, ran by the Van Graffs. Their inventory is pretty limited compared to most other stores/merchants.


    I can't can't break the habit of sneaking/silenced weapons so energy weapons are pretty useless to me. :(


    hint:
    pulse mines

    Yeah I have lockpick skill at max and sneak perks. But I really do want some of those guns for close combat.

    As for the hint, I don't have any yet. Let's just say I went back to my last save and left that for when I have the ability to take on that surprise.

    Hells yeah, lol pwned. Yeah, if brute force don't kill enemies tactics will. Lol sometimes I get enemies to chase me into a whole bunch of disposable friendlies not critical to the story line to combat them. Any way ya can, certainly helps bring your levels up fast killing enemies who largely outpower you by themselves.

    Riot shotgun is extreme rapid fire high damage good for clearing mass numbs of fiends ad mid to close range before pulling out the super sledge

    anti material rifle needs no explanation steady drug + headshot = win

    CZ57 is a super upgraded rare 5mm mini gun it is rape against mutants or other large creatures but be warned it will eat 120 rounds in under 2 seconds

    all american is a semi auto rifle 24 rounds with scope has the same scope roughly as the anti material rifle its damn effective and moderate range great for human targets or similar creatures

    Like Mussels, I had no probs with that quest.

    I've found three pairs of the Alpha and Mother Deathclaws. One pair at Quarry Junction, one at the unmarked Deathclaw Promontory, and the other were in a valley somewhere, don't remember exactly where.

    I just headshot them while sneaking, with the Gobi rifle (JSP ammo). That's a one-shot kill on regular and young Deathclaws, and one or two shots to take down the Alpha/Mother ones IIRC.

    I generally only use:

    .44 Magnum revolver, with scope and heavy frame mods
    -reminds me of my good old Blackhawk in FO3

    Gobi rifle, with AP, HP, and JSP ammo ready
    -relatively light .308 ammo but still packs a punch and has a decent scope

    Sometimes I'll have ED-E keeping the Riot Shotgun, Anti-Material rifle, and/or other weapons on standby for specific purposes. I keep stuff like the CZ57, grenade rifles, missile launcher, and various other unique weapons and explosives like C4, back in a safe room. I don't give Boone any other weapons because he's plenty effective with his own rifle and doesn't use any ammo that way. My simple two-gun loadout (which is also quite durable), along with Boone and ED-E, are plenty of firepower for any situation, given smart tactics.

    ________

    There's a major variance in how polished the various parts of the game are. Some characters, locations, and quests are incredibly detailed and the interactions between them all has clearly been thought out in great detail. Some on the other hand, seem like they were just rushed to completion.

    Tesla Beaton Prototype arguably the most devastating weapon in game besides the fatman without the nuclear fallout from a mini nuke

    TIGR you playing on Very Hard difficulty or no?

    In the early game, I only carry the fully modified Varmint rifle (expanded magazine, silencer, and nightvision scope). Later on in the game, I only carry the fully modified Sniper Rifle (suppressor and lightweight frame). For both, I try to carry 200 rounds normal ammo, 100 rounds AP, and 100 rounds HP.

    For a while, I carried both (for operation cost sake--weapon repairs and ammo). I would use the Varmint rifle 80% of the time and switch the the Sniper Rifle when more difficult enemies show up (like Giant Radscorpions or robots).

    I also had one Silenced .22 for the Ultralux mission and the Anti-material rifle for the final mission/deathclaws.


    I stashed a lot of other weapons but never used them.

    tesla beaton just hardly hurts anything late game.


    high damage sure, but low DPS due to the low rate of fire, and slooooow reload after every shot.

    I'm playing on normal. Am just playing for fun, not for bragging rights. :laugh:

    I got that mouthy little punk to go into the pantry, then closed the door and locked him in there. He was not pleased. Never killed him though.

    ^^ One of the main reasons I don't carry it. I also just plain prefer more traditional weapons.

    Do you ever get a house as such to stash your stuff in? I have a rented hotel room, but don't know if it will be permanent.

    i explained that on TS3 its a fun weapon nothing more i added it so PVTcaboose could see what it looked like nothing more my post above with all weapons shown is my weapon load out 99% of the time i have 310lbs limit when healed up so right now ive got around 20lbs space with 2000 rounds of munitions with my gear i can basically run gun and kill to my hearts content that and the laugh haul perk allows me to fast travel even when over encumbered so weight = meaningless for me

    23 hours on normal for me, about half the sidequests done and finished main quest.

    rented rooms keep hte gear i think, at least mine in novac did.


    i mostly used the crate outside the BoS bunker, as it was easy to travel to and from.

    I'm 65 hours in so far (single play-through) and I explore all locations and quests pretty fully. I have no idea how much more there is to see and do but it continues to get more and more interesting and immersive after this much time.

    I use it to kill the two White Glove Society members that ambush you in the investigator's room and the Assassin that kills Chauncey. One headshot each for the White Glove and it takes about 4 VATS shots to theh ead to kill the assassin. I really, really wanted to use the 10mm silenced or the 12.7mm silenced but I still haven't found a 12.7mm pistol or 10mm silencer. :(


    Novac motel room? It is permanent. Should you lose access to it, simply talk to the merchant in Dino.

    The Lucky 38 is your official "house" once you get it because you can buy upgrades for it and tell your companions to wait there.

    So tempted to pick pick it up and play some, but still waiting for a few patches, maybe a DLC, and mods to get more fleshed out.

    The big issue I had with FO3 is there is a big weapon gap, you go from an Assault Rifle to a Gatling Gun... where are LMGs? So I got Fook 2 and I love the real weapons. But a lot of the newer weapons look better, I just got sick of Getting basic named weapons like Laser Rifle, Laser Pistol, Hunting rifle, just too boring, and not enough ammo types just promoted getting the best weapon of the ammo type and using it. With fook the M249, PKM, and M60 all use seperate ammo, so I can constantly use LMG's if I want. I guess it will all come down to how well the community can make the weapons, if they make real world weapons, but don't have mod kits for them, then I guess I will have to skip them.

    @1Kurgan1: FNV has an LMG but it is pretty rare. There's also about 3 different types of carbines (service rifle, assault carbine, marksman carbine).
