  1. Step 1, gather an even number of scrap metal over 2 (4, 6, 8 ect)
    Step 2, Go to Fort Independance and speak to Henry Casadin to start The Outcast Collection Agent quest.
    Step 3, trade all of the scrap metal you have to him and save.
    Step 4, Pickpocket all of the scrap metal you just traded him, reload if you fail, save if you succeed.
    Step 5, Trade back all the scrap metal to him except for 2 pieces, save again.
    Step 6, Once again pickpocket back all the scrap metal you just traded him, save when you succeed.
    Step 7, Try to pickpocket anything else from Cassadin and fail doing it, with luck he will then take back all the scrap metal you stole (in two batches, ones for the larger pile and again for the 2 you did not trade him a second time). You now have an invisible negative amount of scrap metal that you can now use to complete The Outcast Collection Agent(major use, getting unlimited 556 ammo for use in The Pitt's Ammo Press), Walter's Scrap Metal(caps/karma and xp), and This Old House(stimpaks, radx, radaway) quests.

    Note: The more scrap metal you use, the harder it is to steal them back do to weight.
    For some reason Cassadin will turn hostile when it comes time to purposely get caught stealing from him, only way to fix this is to start a new character. It's random as to whether this will happen or not with each character.
