    I. Recommended Stats - Helpful Notes
    --------------------
    There is already a level glitch in the game.  It will probably
    be patched soon but you need to have a speech skill of 50 to
    do it.  This will also net you the 50 speech wins really quick.
    This game is sorta different when it comes to skills
    of speech and bartering.  You actually have to have the skill
    up to a certain level, it doesn't work on percents anymore.
    You really want to get your speech skill up to 50 anyways 
    because most people you are trying to lure with speech, need
    it to be at least 50.  You want to start working on lockpick
    and repair as soon as possible.  Lockpick so you can get into 
    places.  I always reccomend getting it to at least 50 as well.
    For repair you want it to be at at least 30-35.  This way you
    can repair your weapons and get the repair achievement as well.
    Science will need to be at 50 so you can hack all the way up
    to normal terminals.  Computers seem to be really rare and
    in between in this game, so probably the higher it is the better.
    Don't get too happy with your points, you also need to level up
    Guns or Energy weapons, whatever you prefer to use.  Might be
    easier to just level up guns one playthrough and then energy
    weapons on another if going for all achievements.  Same with
    unarmed and melee as well.  This game offers a bunch of quests
    but most are optional or you must complete to do the main
    story quests.  Unlike Fallout 3, you don't get an achievement
    for every quest in the game.
    You may want to get your speech, science, and lockpick skills
    up to 100 if possible.  There are quite a few surprises in the
    game that require these stats at max.  Science really needs to
    be at 100 so you can hack all terminals.  Lockpick being at
    100 will save you the time of having to look for keys in a few
    quests.
    
    
    For The House Always Wins, Rendar Unto Caesar, For the Republic
    and Wild Card you have to choose really which you want to do. 
    So you can make two separate saves for these achievements 
    once you come across them during the game.  As soon as you
    complete Ring a Ding Ding and exit the TOPs casino, two guys
    will run up to you presenting you with some quests.  One will
    want you to see Caesar and another will ask you to talk to the
    NCR.  Save right here and this will be your jump back save for
    choosing who to side with.  Mainly the NCR will needed to be
    sided with first because the other 3 sides are pretty open
    up to a certain point.  For the NCR, you are just given a note
    to go see the Ambassador in the southern camp in New Vegas.
    He is located in the offices.
    
    If you want to save yourself a little bit of time, go ahead
    and go meet the Boomers in the upper right corner of the map.
    Go ahead and get them to like you and then go complete Ring
    A Ding Ding.  Now save and this way you don't have to repeat
    their quests over 4 times while doing the endings.
    
    Difficulty doesn't affect achievements except for Hardcore
    Mode which is 1 achievement in its self.
    
    NOTE: There are quite a few glitches and bugs in the game
    right now so if something glitches, reload a previous save.
    Be sure to save often.
    
    
    
    NOTE: The XP glitch has been patched.  You can still do it
    offline if you clear your cache on the dashboard.
    
    
    II. The Achievements
    -------------------
    Fallout New Vegas has 50 Achievements worth a total of 1000 
    
    
    
    A. New Kid
      - Reach Level 10  10G
      - There are no achievements for being of a certain karma.
        You just need to reach level 10.  It takes 7,200 XP.
    
    
    B. Up and Comer
      - Reach level 20  20G

      - There are no achievements for being of a certain karma.
        You just need to reach level 10.  It takes 66,700 XP.
      - For the current XP glitch, get your speech up to 50. When
        you get to Freeside, go to Atomic Wranglers bar and talk
        to the guy at the desk and ask him if he needs any help.
        He will tell you he needs some escorts.  Go around and
        look for a guy named Old Ben.  Convince him to go be an
        escort and he will run to the bar.  Now go back to the bar
        and talk to him, it will allow you to keep asking him to
        join, getting you a bit of XP and successful speeches.
    
    
    D. Ol' Buddy Ol' Pal
      - Recruit any companion 10G
      - There is a glitch with Ed-E robot companion as of right
        now.  He tends to disappear so you may have to reload
        older saves to keep him around.
    
    
    E. The Whole Gang's Here
      - Recruit all of the companions  25G
      - Here are the people that can join you.

                 the confirmed bachelor perk or 75 speech for
                 him to join you.
    
      - Craig Boone - Novac - Catch him in the Dinky the Dino's
                 mouth on duty after 9 PM.  He will want you to
                 do a little quest for him to figure out what
                 happened to his wife.  So talk to No Bark, the
                 town crazy and he will tell you you should
                 explore Dinky Dino's Hotel lobby.  Go there and
                 crack the safe and find slaving papers.  This
                 will show who actually sold his wife into slavery.
                 You can also just make any random person walk into
                 the front of Dinky the Dino to complete this.
    
      - ED-E   - Found in Primm, you need a repair skill of 65
                 or a Science skill of 55 or you can fix him with
                 3 scrap metals, 2 sensor modules and 1 scrap 
                 electronics.  He is located in Nash's residence. 
                 He won't join if you have Rex following you. 
    
      - Lillian Marie Bowen (Lily) - Jacobstown
    
      - Raul Alfonso Tejada - Black Mountain
    
      - Rex    - The King's School of Impersonation - You can

      - Rose of Sharon Cassidy (Cass) - Traveling Water Merchant
    
      - Veronica Renata Santangelo - 188 Trading Post
    
       
    F. Crafty
      - Craft 20 items  15G
      - This can be ammo as well.  Find a work bench after picking
        up a bunch of shell casings and just keep making ammo.
        Really easy to get.  It can be 20 of the same bullet.
    
        Sent By TripleJump - You can also pick up a bit of scrap
        and break it down for lead.  Comes really fast with this
        method as well.
    
    
    G. Mod Machine
      - Install 20 weapon mods 15G
      - You can install up to 3 weapon mods per weapon and once
        it is installed, it is permanent.  You buy parts from
        different merchants and you install them yourself on
        the pip boy menu. 
        Sent By TripleJump - You can also pick up a bit of scrap
                             and break it down.
    
    
    H. Walker of the Mojave
      - Discover 50 locations  10G
      - see Master of the Mojave
    
    
    I. Master of the Mojave
      - Discover 125 locations  25G
      - There are a lot of locations in Fallout New Vegas.  Most
        are close together and small places like some random house
        in the Wasteland.  You will find most places around
        Freeside/New Vegas.  When you hit level 20, you can get
        the explorer perk that allows all locations to appear on
        the map.  There are way more than 125 places in the game.
    
    
    J. Globe Trotter
      - Find all the snowglobes 25G
      - There are a total of only 7.  They don't do stat increases
        like the bobbleheads on Fallout 3 but can net you 2,000 caps
        if sold to House the king of New Vegas. He lives in Lucky 38.
        You can also just display them in your house.
    
      - Goodsprings - Goodsprings cemetery, on one of the graves 
      - Hoover Dam - In the Hoover Dam offices, sitting on the welcome desk.
      - Mormon Fort - In the Old Mormon Fort, in the corner there is a 
                      door to the tower. Upstairs on a shelf.
      - Mt. Charleston - Jacobstown in Jacobstown Lodge, sitting on the 
                         reception desk.
      - Nellis AFB - Nellis AirForce Base, Nellis Boomer Museum.
      - Test Site - Lucky 38 Casino, Cocktail lounge on the counter 
      - The Strip - Vault 21 (Vegas Strip), locked room in the 
                    northeast corner 
    
    
    K. You Run Barter Town
      - Sell 10,000 caps worth of goods  15G
      - The higher your barter skill, the faster this will come.  Just while
        exploring the wasteland, pick up all guns and sell them.  You can get
        a lot more caps for weapons depending on their condition so if you have
        a decent repair skill, don't be afraid to combine weapons.  They will
        net you quite a bit of caps.  Also make sure people you sell to have a
        bit of caps.  You can check how many caps they have in the upper right
        corner on the sell menu.
    
    
    L. Blast Mastery
      - Deal 10,000 damage with energy weapons 15G
      - You deal more damage depending on your Energy skill level. This is using
        Laser and Plasma weapons.  Doesn't matter if it is a two handed or one
        handed gun.  If you enjoy using energy weapons, this will come naturally
        during normal play.
    
    
    M. Love the Bomb
      - Deal 10,000 damage with explosives 15G
      - This has to do with the Explosives skill.  The higher it is, the more
        efficient you can use explosives.  This counts for mines, grenades
        dynamite and explosive launchers.  You can usually find frag grenades
        all over the place and you find quite a bit of dynamite from the start
        of the game as well.  Just really want to abuse it and throw it at
        most enemies just to knock this achievement out of the way.
        
    
    N. Lead Dealer
      - Deal 10,000 damage with guns 15G
      - This deal with basic guns that use standard bullets.  Pistols, rifles,
        and shotguns all fall into this category if they use actual bullets.
        Doesn't matter if it is a single handed or two handed gun, all count.
        The higher your gun skill, the faster you can acquire this but there
        should be no rush on it.  You will probably get it really early on
        no trouble because the game is mostly based on gun use.
    
    
    O. No Tumbler Fumbler
      - Pick 25 locks   15G
      - Try to hold onto your bobby pins and don't force locks.  You don't
        want to risk breaking locks.  You need a lockpick skill of 15 for
        very easy, 30 for easy, 50 for normal, 75 for hard and 100 for
        very hard.  I would reccomend having it at least at 50 and you 
        should have no trouble picking 25 locks early on in the game.
        If you want to save bobby pins, try a lock two times and if you
        don't get it, cancel picking and repick, that way your bobby pin
        resets but the lock also has a different sweet spot.
    
    
    P. Stim-ply Amazing
      - Heal 10,000 damage with stimpaks 15G
      - If you take a lot of damage while in the wastes, abuse some
        stimpaks if you want this early on.  Otherwise it should come
        easily during normal gameplay.  You can also hurt yourself and
        heal or crank the difficulty up so you take more damage.  The
        higher your Medicine skill, the more health you gain from
        stimpaks.
    
    
    Q. New Vegas Samurai
      - Deal 10,000 damage with melee 15G
      - For this you may want to level your melee skill up.  It doesn't
        need to be too high but the higher the better.  Use weapons like
        baseball bats, knives, pool cues and Machetes.  Anything you swing
        you work fine.  Just keep cutting or beating up enemies and this 
        will come eventually.
    
    
    R. Jury Rigger
      - Repair 30 items  15G
      - This deals with the repair skill and to me is a must to have a
        good repair skill.  This will save you a ton of caps since you
        can repair your own stuff.  All you need is a double of your
        weapon.  Example, you have a varmint rifle, you kill an enemy and
        pick their's up.  You can now go to your pip boy and use their
        rifle to repair yours and make it stronger.  Do this 30 times and
        you will get this.  Higher your repair skill, the higher you repair
        you item.
    
    
    S. Hack the Mojave
      - Hack 25 terminals  15G
      - This deals with the science skill and like the lockpick skill, it 
        has to be so high depending on the level of the terminal.  There
        aren't too many terminals in the game that I have seen so you may
        want to max out your Science skill to get this one.  To hack a 
        terminal, you must access it and then pick the right code command
        to hack it.  If you mess up twice you may want to cancel and start
        again.  You don't want to lock the terminal down since they are
        rare in the game.
    
    
    T. Artful Pocketer
      - Pick 50 pockets 15G
      - This deals with the Sneak skill.  You also have to have a pretty
        high sneak skill to successfully pick pocket people.  First you
        have to crouch and it will say Hidden or Detected at the top
        middle of the screen.  If you are hidden you can pick someone's
        pocket but you don't want to get caught or your reputation in
        that area will go down.
    
        Glitch
        Go to Vault 21 in the Vegas Strip. Once you enter go through the 
        doors and down into the vault. Keep going until you get into the big 
        open area with the blackjack and roulette tables. As soon as you come 
        down the steps you will see three people standing in a group talking 
        with each other. The man that is facing away from you in the brown 
        jacket and brown fedora hat is who you will be pickpocketing. Crouch 
        and inch closer to him and right when you see the pickpocket option 
        come up go into it. He should be carrying a bottle of dirty water and 
        some pork n beans. Now you can pickpocket him and the item you stole 
        will stay in his inventory. You can keep repeating this. Just steal 
        the dirty water, back out and save and then repeat. I say save because 
        you will randomly get caught so you can reload your save if you get 
        caught. You can pick his pocket an unlimited amount of times.
    
    
    U. Outstanding Orator
      - Pass 50 Speech checks  15G
      - Just from playing through, you want to have a 50 speech skill.
        Most people you have to be at about 50 to convince them with
        you speech.  You can also use the glitch to go ahead and knock
        this out as well.
      
      - For the current XP glitch, get your speech up to 50. When
        you get to Freeside, go to Atomic Wranglers bar and talk
        to the guy at the desk and ask him if he needs any help.
        He will tell you he needs some escorts.  Go around and
        look for a guy named Old Ben.  Convince him to go be an
        escort and he will run to the bar.  Now go back to the bar
        and talk to him, it will allow you to keep asking him to
        join, getting you a bit of XP and successful speeches.
    
    
    V. Desert Survivalist
      - Heal 10,000 damage with food  15G
      - There is tons of food in the game all over.  You may
        want to keep Rad Away on you as well because just about
        all food gives you Radiation.  Just whenever you get
        hurt instead of using stimpaks, eat you some food.  You
        can hurt yourself and eat food or you can crank up the
        difficulty to take more damage.  The higher your Survival
        skill, the more health you gain from food items. You can
        kill wild Brahmin and cook their meat at campfires.  These
        heal quite a bit.
    
    
    W. Old-Tyme Brawler
      - Deal 10,000 damage with unarmed  15G
      - For this you may want to level your unarmed skill up. This
        works with Brass Knuckles and Power Fists as well. Anything
        that has a fist icon on it on the Pip Boy Screen. Just 
        keep attacking enemies head-on with your fists and you 
        should get this.

    AC.The Courier Who Broke the Bank
      - Get banned from all the casinos on the strip  30G
      - You get banned by winning too much at a casino. You must get
        banned from all casinos.  There are only 3 casinos on the strip
        that you can get banned from.  One way to do this, buy 100 chips
        and then go to the Blackjack Table.  Save your game and then go
        all in and.  If you win, you double you chips, if you lose, 
        reload and try again.  Rinse and repeat until banned.  Blackjack
        seems to work the fastest but each casino will take you a bit
        to get banned from it.
    
        Gomorrah = Banned at 9,000+ chips.
        The Tops = Banned at 10,000+ chips.
        Ultra-Luxe = Banned at 15,000+ chips.
      
    
    AD.Hardcore
      - Beat the game on Hardcore mode  100G
      - Hardcore has nothing to do with the game's in game difficulty
        of Easy, Normal and Hard.  It is a separate mode that carries
        on the with the difficulty you select.  So I would reccomend 
        playing on Easy with Hardcore on.  You will be first asked
        if you want to play on Hardcore right before leaving the Doc's
        house at the start of the game.  You cannot deactivate it at
        any time while playing through the game or you won't get the
        achievement.
    
        Hardcore mode makes the game more realistic by making Simpaks
        heal you over time.  Rad Away decreases radiation over time.
        You must eat food to survive.  YOu must sleep in normal cycles.
        You must drink water here and there or you will dehydrate and
        you must see a doctor to heal limbs or use a doctor's bag.
        Also companions can die and food does not restore health.
        Ammo has weight so you can only carrie what you can.
