    Had to reload a save from a while back, this is a bit frustrating.
    It took about 5 days of waiting, and then you'll get notified that he's been dropped off in Primm.

    Where do companions go if you fire them? Also, will the NCR, etc. turn hostile if I get my companion to wear BoS armor?

    I finally got my speech to 80 with the Naughty Nightwear. Now I just have to build up a collection of Meeting People to get those 100 Speech checks.

    Vendors will sell them. I got mine from the Gun Runners. It costs around 7000 caps though, so I hope you've saved up some money. You'll be rolling in caps aroud level 16 though.

    Hahah oh man, the vicky and vance story. :lol:

    also the survival element is insane now, makes me wonder if using that mod that increases the hardcore mode stats was a bad idea, ive just had to slowly limp (mod that makes it basically crawl speed if limbs are broken) from primm back to goodsprings to get healed, no stimpacks, no doc bags no nothing, highly radiated from eating and drinking rads and every single limb except my right arm was broke and i cut through gecko land.

    Which faction repaired him? The Followers or the Brotherhood? I did the Followers, but I know that when I did the BoS questline, in order for it to finish properly so I could get power armor training, I had to leave the bunker and the Hidden Valley area entirely and then wait, because waiting inside the bunker (even for 10 days) wouldn't move things forward.

    at end game i had 30,000 caps.

    but that is not a lot of money. Its a bit more than normal if you have Jury Riging perk cause you can repair good guns with less expensive ones, but its still not a lot of money with how expensive everything is.

    Which is a good thing, a freshly made Sniper Rifle from the gun runners with no use and 100% CND should be expensive

    Right, thanks. The fact that it even allows you to choose that dialogue option is kind of pointless unless you want to look bad. At least it allows for multiple attempts.

    By backtracking through my saves I think I figured out what happened with my Boone that will only fight bare handed. I took him into the Gomorrah casino, where they took all of our weapons.

    When we came back out, though it restocked me, it didn't give him his rifle back. And even if I give him one just like it, he still never draws it and instead prefers to just fight bare handed.

    I love Boone's badassedry. It's refreashing to have an NPC say something like "we were the best snipers" and then have it actually show.

    He's only ever reverted to machete when we're inside a corridor or house or something. For me anyway. As it should be.

    You have to give him ammo for any gun you give him if you want him to use it.

    As for me, he still had his rifle in my game..He just decided to Machete everything for no good reason

    This is easily one of my top games ever. It's been so long since I've found a game that I've been this into. Half-Life 2 comes to mind as the last one.


    This game is GOAT material and I have a feeling a lot of people aren't realizing that we haven't had a game this wide open and full of character since Deus Ex 1. If this game had came out 4 or so years ago with crappier graphics but the same type of gameplay mechanics it would be lauded as one of the greatest things ever. I have a feeling this has something to do with the spoilization of gamers in the past few years.

    It took me a while to actually realize that that part of the map was unaccessible. It took a while of hiking deeper into the Cazadore territory by the beer bootlegging shack to realize that there was no way I could climb over all those rocks to get to Jacobstown.

    Cazadores are basically bloatflies that have been given Deathclaw-like strength.

    Can I join the NCR or the Nevada Rangers, the way you can join the Brotherhood in fo3? I'm guessing yes, based on the NCR and the Legion being the two big factions. How soon can I become a ranger? I want to be a Ranger!

    Is there a barbershop somewhere? I haven't found anywhere to get a haircut or change my facial hair yet.
