    I. Recommended Stats - Helpful Notes
    Explosives need to be at 25, level this up the first time
    you level up which will be when you leave the vault.
    You want both your lockpick and Science to be at least 50,
    level this up over time, the earlier the better.  You may
    want to level up your small guns as well because that is
    mainly all you will use in the game.  You will also need a
    pretty decent Speech skill. Around 80 just to be safe, the
    higher the better.  Having a high sneak skill will make it
    easier to get around building in stealth.
    Note 1: If you decide to blow up Megaton instead of
    disarming the bomb.  You may not be able to complete the
    Wasteland Survival Gude quest because Moira will not always
    survive the trip to the Underworld and you will miss a bobblehead 
    if you don't collect it beforehand.
    Note 2: If you miss the bobblehead inside Vault 101, you will have
    another chance to collect it during the Trouble on the Homefront
    Note 3: If you miss the bobblehead in Raven Rock, there is no
    returning to get it.  You must get it before reaching the room
    leading up to President Eden.
    Note 4: To get DLC to work, you must first download it off the 
    Xbox Live marketplace for 800 MS points a piece.  There are a 
    total of 3 different packs.  So a total of 2400 MS points.  You
    must then update your game with the required update prompt that
    you usually get sometimes while playing online on Live.  Same
    goes for PC users except you will get it off the main menu of
    the game.  You will then have to activate it in the Data File
    Menu when you first load up the game.
    Note 5: For DLC to appear in game. Operation Anchorage will give
    you a radio broadcast telling you to help the Outcasts.  The Pitt
    will give you a radio broadcast about a slave in need of help. For
    Broken Steel, this will start after doing Taking It Back. Point Lookout
    will give you a pop up message saying there is a ship docked in the
    PC Note: You can use user made mods and the in game cheats and still
    earn achievements.  To open the in game cheats menu. Press your pause
    key which is Esc by default.  Hit the ~ key above Tab and a command
    prompt will come up.  You may enter the codes there.

        at level 29 or 30 to get the achievements.  Here is an
        eperience glitch so you can level up faster.
      - Another way to do this is after you complete Who Dares Wins,
        you can talk to Tristan and gain the ability to get Super
        Mutant blood samples.  Turning these in will net you
        experience.  Now just set your difficutly to Very Hard and
        go to the Downtown DC area and kill off super mutants and
        collect their blood samples(check the bodies).  After
        killing a lot of them, return to Tristan and turn in the
        samples.  Killing on Very Hard nets you more experience for
        killing enemies.

     - Completed "The Local Flavor"  20G
     - Go to the boat that is instructed to you from the pop up message.
       Once you get there, talk to the guy on the boat and buy a ticket.
       You will then have to rest on a bunk on the boat to travel to
       Point Lookout.  Once there, follow your quest marker to the mansion.
       Inside you will meet a ghoul named Desmond who needs your help
       killing off the tribal people attacking the mansion.  After fighting
       off all waves of attackers, this quest is completed and you will then
       start Walking with Spirits.
    BN.Walking With Spirits
     - Completed "Walking With Spirits"  20G
     - You are required then to join the tribals at their cathedral.  Go
       there and you will notice you can't enter the gate so talk into the
       intercom.  They will tell you to pass their test by going to their
       sacred ground.  Go there and enter.  You will have to fight off some
       Mirelurks and Swamplurks.  You will then find a giant Punga Plant.
       Activate it for some funky side effects. After you wake up, make your
       way back to the cathedral and gain entry.  Talk to Nadine inside to
       have your scar removed and to learn the location of the tribal leader.

     - Completed "A Meeting of the Minds"  20G

       to find who the real leader is and why he wants to destroy Desmond.  
       Report back to Desmond. You will then have to go back the the dock
       where you started in Point Lookout.  You can either choose to put
       Desmonds Transmitter on the Ferris wheel or throw it in the trash.
       If you put it on the Ferris wheel, you will then have to fight off
       a bunch of tribals.  Afterwards, return to Desmonds mansion to see
       if blow up.  You will find Desmond unharmed in a secret trap door
       where the mansion used to be.  He will lead an attack of just you
       and him to the lighthouse to kill Calvert(Tribal Leader).  Fight
       your way through the lighthouse until you get to Calvert.  He will
       tell you to choose either to kill him or to kill Desmond.  If you
       choose Desmond, you get a key to Calverts armory and can take 
       whatever you want.  If you kill Desmond, Calvert orders you dead
       and you have to kill off some robots.  Just choose to kill Calvert
       and shoot the brain tank a few times until cracks and dies.  Loot
       the armory and then make your way out.

       a radio broadcast signal.  This will start Not of this World. Go
       to the marker on your map which is near the Waste Disposal plant.
       You will then be transported onto an alien ship. You will see a 
       few little cutscene flashes and you will then be in a cell. You
       will meet Somah which is also captured and being held. You and 
       Somah create a diversion to get out of the cell.  Make your way
       through the ship and you will finally meet up with Sally.  She
       will assist you through the ship.  While making your way through,
       you will come to a room with some other prisoners, a cowboy, a
       samurai, a medic and a dead astronaut.  Not of this World will
       unlock here.
    BR.Among the Stars
     - Completed "Among the Stars"  20G
     - You will be required to destroy the genetators holding the
       prisoners.  You now have to destroy the generators among
       the ship.  They are in the Hangar, Cryo Lab/Cryo Storage and 
       Robot Assembly.  After destroying all these generators.  You
       will now have to do the space walk part.  Enter the
       Decompression chamber and put on the space suit you got off
       the astronaut.  NOTE - You want to make sure you have gotten
       all the Alien Recordings up to this point.  You will not be
       able to return.  While in space walk, locate the three
       exposed panels and destroy them.  After that, enter the
       teleporter in the middle of the ship.
    BS.This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough…
     - Completed "This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough…"  40G
     - You will reunite with your group after being teleported.
       Your mission now is to destroy the Death Ray.  After you do
       this you will have to kill the Alien captain on the bridge of
       the ship.  Once you have wiped the bridge clean, you will be
       attacked by a UFO.  You will have to use the Death Ray to
       destory it.  I'm guessing there are 2 death rays because you
       destroy one.  For this you will have to use the switch
       controls at the front of the bridge of the ship.  Best tactic
       is to change controls to max and fire at the ship, then as
       soon as you are done shooting.  Turn shields all the way up.
       You will have to reactivate the generators to the ship after
       a shot or two and fight off aliens attacking from the 
       teleporter room behind you as well.  After shooting the
       other UFo a few times it will be destroyed and you will
       get this achievement.
