Bring a companion to Dead Money glitch?

#1jdt278Posted 9/30/2011 11:09:37 AM

Correct my if I am mistaken but I could have sworn there was a topic awhile bacl about being able to bring a companion to DM through a glitch. I have googled and searced the site but the either it never existed or my word search parameters are too limited. Feedback? I would like to do utilize this glitch on this play through but I can't seem to fins it.

Ya, it's the veronica glitch that allows you to recruit multiple humanoid companions. The second companion you recruit and onward will follow you into any DLC.

Recruit Veronica Santangelo at the 188 Trading Post and visit the sites that trigger her quest I Could Make You Care. When the third trigger trips and Veronica opens dialogue with you, tell her that you do not have time right now, then fire her and send her back to 188. Hire any other companion, go back to Veronica, ask her what she wanted to talk about earlier, and when she requests that you take her to Hidden Valley, tell her to go by herself, and decline with the first negative response. You will know when you have chosen the correct option if you get a notification saying you have lost Veronicas "Scribe Assistant" perk as if you just fired her again, even though she was never hired to begin with. This will open another companion slot. You can hire another companion, go back to Veronica and redo the preceding steps, and open another one, repeating until all humanoid companions are hired, ending with Veronica.

Ur supposed to be able to do it with the Veronica all humanoid companions glitch. I was able to do it once, but it has not worked since, as I can't get Veronica to show up back at the 188 if I attempt to do it again.

I think you can bring the NCR ranger/trooper from the emergency radio, too, although it would be hard to keep him alive.

Any glitch that lets you bring along multiple companions will let you bring some into Dead Money. The easiest one is the glitch that occurs in the I Could Make You Care quest.

If you've recruited everyone while traveling to the Sierra Madre, you should still have Lily, Raul, and Veronica with you. Do note though that playing in Hardcore Mode like this is a very bad idea. They'll attack the security holograms that are inside the casino and the vault, which basically ensures their deaths unless you can disable the hologram emitters extremely fast.

With Hardcore Mode disabled though, it's cheating outright. Companion equipment isn't confiscated so...

MC2011 - thank you profusely! I have done DM twice w/o glitches and now that all the DLC is out I am doing a new character and want to to do DM but want to bring a companion to compensate for some of the shortcomings.

Wait.
I can't get it to work?
What am I doing wrong?

You can basically go to about 1:46-1:48 for the initial conversation after the 3 triggers.
