  • Infinite Caps (Pre-Patch)

    First, you must go to the town of Primm. Complete the "My Kind Of Town" quest for them by getting a sheriff for the town. After you get them a sheriff, or the NCR's troops, you have to wait 3-7 in game days, and the Vikki and Vance Casino will open again in Primm. Go there, and exchange some Caps for some of the casino's chips. Then, turn in the casino's chips for caps. You will notice that when you turn the chips in, you don't have them removed from your inventory, however you get the payout. You can exploit this for as long as you want.

  • Infinite Caps Glitch

    This requires that you complete the Wang Dang Atomic Tango quest to perform this glitch. After you complete this quest, Fisto will become an available "escort." First, ask for his services and meet him up in the rented room at the Atomic Wrangler, then use his service. Next, go back to him and talk to him again, but say "Never mind" instead. As a result, he will say "Very well, please return if you require further service," and you will keep getting back 10 caps every time you do this. This works as long as you have the room rented at any time after the first performance, but will not work with the other escorts.

Doing this will give you 22 xp and cause it's body to pop, and If you put the forelegs back in the inventory you will gain an additional 22 xp. You can repeat this multiple times on the same mantis to get the desired amount of xp.

  • Infinite Speech Check Loop

    This requires a speech skill of 20. Talk to 10 of Spades in Camp McCarren. You may need to find out about Corporal Betsy's trauma beforehand. Anyway, open a dialogue with him and select "I heard about what happened to Corporal Betsy" then "Tell me what happened." Your next options will be the speech check or "If you were unconscious, how could you have done anything?" Do the speech check, then the other option is the only one available except "Never mind." After you select the unconscious option, the speech check will be available again, but grayed. Regardless, keep pressing A and they'll alternate. Even though the check is gray, it still counts as a pass. NOTE: This does not glitch XP as well.

  • Infinite XP

    You need Speech of 30 or the perk Confirmed Bachelor. You must also be on the good side of NCR. Go to HELIOS One and the lady should automatically talk to you. Once she allows you access HELIOS One, you should be able to start the mission "That Lucky Old Sun". Follow the mission and talk to Fantastic and Ignacio Rivas. While talking to Rivas make sure you get him to reveal that he's a Follower of the Apocalypse by using Speech or Confirmed Bachelor and agree with his ideals about peace or just say you're neutral. Do the mission regularly until you get to the point where you activate the Mainframe Terminal. Configure the Power Grid to "5) Full Region (Emergency Output Level). Finish the mission by hitting the Reflector Control Panel outside on top of the tower. Go back to Ignacio Rivas and choose the option "I overloaded the plant. No one.....". The glitch is that the option never disappears, so you can choose to keep pressing it. You get 350XP, 3 Stimpacks, and 2 Doctor's Bag
