Although, the game does have its flaws, just like any other video game, you will find that most of the flaws are few and far between.
As a whole, Fallout 3 is a fantastic game, and you can't play any game without knowing even the simplest tips and hints. So, below you'll find various tips and cheats that will help you progress throughout the game.

Fallout 3 Glitches
So these glitches can only help you while you're playing Fallout 3. For now, they are still as is, but it's probably just a matter of time until Bethesda patches the glitches. Until the time comes, take full advantage.
If your speech skill is high enough, you can gain infinite XP. What you want to do is go to the town called "Big Town," which is located north of Vault 101. Speak to a girl named Bittercup, and she should tell you all about her dating exploits. Then, after speaking with her, you'll want to go into the house that is marked "Common House," and talk with a man named Pappy. A speach dialogue box should popup that says, "You came here with Bittercup, right?" Click it, and you will get XP each time. Continue to do this, and you will be able to load up on XP in just seconds.
In order to take advantage of this glitch, you'll have to reach Level 10 with a skill of 60 in order to get the Sandman perk. You'll want to go to Andale, which is in the south central portion of the map. When you're there, you'll want to wait till around 1 am to go into the Smith house, while they're sleeping. Once in the house, you will want to go upstairs to the kid's bedroom and use sandman on him by crouching down, selecting him, and using the first option; repeat this step.You can increase the difficulty in order to get more XP.
Fallout 3 Easter Eggs
Alien and alien blaster
You want to go to the Minefield and head north. Keep going and eventually you will pick up a radio signal from the alien space craft. When you find the radio signal, you will find the space craft and a special gun that has limited ammo.
When you come up to a Brahmin, anywhere on the wasteland, you will want to crouch and hit the interact button in order to tip over the Brahmin. Just remember that you want to come up on one Brahmin, not a pack of Brahmin.
Fallout 3 Tips
- Maxing Skill Points: In order to maximize the number of skill points that you get in a game, jack up your intelligence in the introduction to either 9 or 10 in order to maximize the skill ganes. Otherwise, you can grab the Educated perk when you hit level 4, doing this you can get 20 points for levels 2 and 3, and then 23 points for level 3 and up.
- Steal Things: If you are planning on being evil, steal everything that you can. The game does not flag stolen items, so find a way to hide behind the counter and steal the safes and registers.
- Kill Those Who Have What You Want: Becuase there's not much criminal justice, you can kill those who have things that you want. Just watch out who you decide to kill. It will be safer to kill wanders and travelers, than main characters.
- Finish The Megaton, Before You Really Do: Early in the game, you you can either save or destroy Megaton, and although destroying it is fun, you'll want to make sure to go there first. If you decide to save Megaton, make sure to finish the quest early so that you have a single place that's yours to store all of your things and a place to sleep in a bed.
- Use Fast Travel: If you're in the middle of nowhere, find a nearby landmark that unlocks a nearby fast travel spot so that you can pop over, drop your loot off, and go back instantly.
- Study The Perks: If you study your character's skills and try to have your character learned in various areas, you will be able to further yourself in the game. Make sure to pick a character type that interests you. One that will make good use of 4-5 skills, 2-3 stats, and various perks so that they all work together.
- Use V.A.T.S: Using V.A.T.s will get you through a lot of tough situations. While you're using it, you will be invincible until it ends.
- Scrounger: This will help yield more ammo when you're searching through containers in the Wasteland. You can even sell the ammo that you're not going to use for a nice profit.
- Ammo is Weightless: Because the ammo doesn't weigh anything, you can carry as much as you want. Just make sure that you have enough weapons to use the ammo.
- Lockpick Skills: In order to maximize your loot, make sure that you know how to pick a lock.
- Travel: Try traveling old roads, rivers, and rows of destroyed power lines in order to find new places of interests.
- Carry Various Weapons: Because you won't be able to use the same weapons in every situation, you'll want to make sure that you carry a variety of different weapons and guns. If you're worried about the ammo, you can conserve your ammo by using bats, sledge hammers, and other melee weapons.
