    My biggest complaint about OWB is that I don't use Energy Weapons at all.
    K9000 Is hilarious AND effective.

    And if you pass a 75 guns check in the opening cutscene, you can get two of them.

    Oh fuck, i take back all i said about luck.



    Didn't miss a shot, so many crits, the only person who hit me was Ian, on the way in i found a shotgun and about 80 rounds and i blew rather large holes in most people.

    Man, the story here is actually really good.

    I like the idea (and it's unaviodable, really) that you're NOT the only one exploring with an agenda, and there's a strong possibility that someone's after you and you don't know why. I'd never have expected this from a Fallout game.

    Edited:



    I haven't gotten brush guns. So far I've only gotten Proton Axes and caravan shotguns. I'm level 22.

    Edited:

    brush gun is not in their drop list sir
    Are you sure? Last time I played OWB they dropped them. Then again I was around level 40-50 so that's why.

    Just got Turbo Plasma Riffle in Fallout. Magnificent with 200% in Energy Weapons and 10 luck, even Deathclaws can't do almost anything to you.
    Also, BoS is awesome in it. Much better then in FO3 or NV.

    Actually, Deathclaws aren't that fearsome as they're in F3 and NV - I remember taking the one that was in the cave with that dying mutie scout on with a .223 Pistol and winning. You just have to aim for the eyes.
    The Wanamingos in Redding in F2, on the other hand...

    According to the wiki, it's not on their drop list at all.


    I keep waiting for Vet Rangers to drop them so I can farm them but they never do. :(

    ...I'm kind of tempted to use a Brush Gun, actually. With the Cowboy perk, it does an extra 20 damage per shot. That's a lot.

    Except I do not have that perk.

    No. Only take perks that give bonus damage to all enemies, not just robots. And shutting them down is unnecessary when you can already shut them down.

    With bullets.

    You either destroy them or they can become allies. (If you're a member, talk to McNamara about it when Moore asks you to deal with them.)

    Anyway, finished with Vault 34, sold the guns and ammo I got from it, stored all my stuff except for two guns and combat armor, ready to do Dead Money. I stored it all in Wolfhorn Ranch because someone a few pages back said something about a glitch where you lose all your stuff after completing the DLC, I'm keeping just two guns so I don't get raped legion assassin's.

    I'm mainly trying not to waste 10,000 bullets (or 5 minutes of whacking) on one robo-scorpion, and also to roleplay someone with a fasination with robots, robotics, and cybernetics (although my character doesn't like hurting robots).

    I downloaded the Willow Companion mod. It's probably the best Companion mod I've tried so far. I'm going to try the Marcus one next but it's pretty cool being an NCR Ranger duo.

    I have since changed my uniform to the Patrol Armor she's wearing so we matched. Aside from how 'clean' and non canonically she looks it's a pretty sold mod.

    Isn't she one of those ~deep~ romance companions with subpar voice acting?

    It's the coolest thing ever actually.


    http://newvegas.nexusmods.com/downlo...id=39611&tab=3

    Wear it around, put stuff in it and when you drop it you can use it to put down a bedroll and sleep.

    I made a stash in my game. Filled an extra backpack I bought with supplies, a sidearm, leather armor, some ammunition, meds, caps, food and water and put it in the back of the crashed highwayman incase I ever need it.

    You can also fill the backpacks, drop them and hide them somewhere. Like in the bed of a truck, in a house on a shelf or inside a box car etc. and make your own stashes.

    Edited:

    Not deep. I think the voice acting is pretty good considering this is the first mod I downloaded with original voice acting, there are like 400 lines of dialog so it's not bad. She also is pretty useful, can make campfires and shit for me.

    She does have a romance arch but it takes awhile to get too.

    She seems okay from what I've heard, but the first impressions I get from the images on the Nexus page kind of suck.

    What with the rather glaringly bleached blonde hair, the hello kitty shirt (HNNNNNNG), the blatant sex appeal, and that one image where she seems to be in some butterfly prostitute getup.

    Like I said, she looks out of place. There is a canon version but it's really ugly so I just deal with the obnoxiously pretty one. The hello kitty thing is a necklace you can remove, it's the forum avatar of the person who made the mod (a woman) so it was an easter egg or something I guess.

    Maybe it's just a coincidence, but I find that some NPC's suck at sneaking and just go gung-ho on everything. Boone for example, I've snuck right down the middle of an ant colony with him, no problem. Then there's Veronica, who will charge down 2 corridors and across a room to kill a lone Mantis.

    So... use RobCo Certified/Mad scientist? Then you have robots of your own to help out with the slaughter. Works best if you install a bunch of difficulty mods, so you don't just have a massive army of robots who kill everything before you even see it.

    That's a mod that adds Police, not the uniform, though the link to the uniform is in the description.

    He should use the Vault Security Uniform for the Armoured Police.
