How To Get Rich Quick In Fallout 3

Bottle caps don't come easy in Bethesda's Fallout 3, but there are some methods that the Lone Wanderer can use to get rich quickly in the Wasteland.

Now that Microsoft’s purchase of Bethesda has gone through, many new games are being added to Game Pass. Strangely, not the modern classic, Fallout 3. However, now that other Bethesda Fallout games are there, maybe you want to pick up their first one. Now, you may have already played this RPG or you might be a complete newcomer, either way, you don’t want to be poor in-game.

Everything costs money. Guns, ammo, armor, shelter, food, medicine, everything. Getting rich quick in the Wasteland may seem hard, but there are a few simple steps you can take to really help out your wallet in the early game.

Get On The Property Ladder

Getting a place of your own and not having to pay rent every night will help you massively. There are two houses you can get very early in the game: a suite in Tenpenny Tower or a cozy house in Megaton. Without giving any spoilers, here’s what you need to get either house, as you can’t get both.

To get the suite, head into Moriarty’s Saloon in Megaton and do a favor for a shady-looking guy sitting in the corner. To get the Megaton house, do a favor for Lucas Simms. You’ll need 25 Explosives skill to do this – take some mentats to buff your perception or put on a Raider blastmaster helmet to temporarily increase it to that level if it’s too low.

Once you’ve done a favor for one or the other, you’ll have a place to call your own! Both properties can be upgraded with new themes or helpful amenities. Moira – at Craterside Supply in Megaton – can upgrade your Megaton abode, while either Lydia Montenegro or Michael Masters in Tenpenny Tower can improve furnishings in your suite.

Your best bet is honestly siding with Lucas Simms on this one. Megaton is a much better base than Tenpenny Tower and will allow you to make more money in the early-game.

Raise Your Barter Skill

This step is actually completely unnecessary since the ones that follow make more than enough money without it. However, having a high Barter skill – linked to your Charisma stat – will make buying prices lower and selling prices higher. This is obviously good if you want to be rich.

That being said, your skill points are finite, so you’re probably better off taking the small hit to profits to ensure your other skills get as high as possible. With how much money you can make following these steps, you won’t even need good prices.

Sell Everything

This isn’t hyperbole, literally sell everything you can lay your grubby, vault-dwelling hands on. Even at the lowest Bartering skill, every item in the game holds value. Sure, bent tin cans may only sell for 0.5 caps, but if you go to the old Super Duper Mart and collect 200 of them you’ll net a tidy profit of 100 caps.

Fallout 3’s world is littered with, well, litter. Pick it all up and sell it. Go to the old school just west of Megaton and grab every book, can, plate, anything that isn’t bolted down. Take it and sell it to the vendors in Megaton and Rivet City. The area will look weird and barren, but who really goes back to old areas anyway? If anything, you’re doing the world a favor by cleaning it all up.

Sell Scrap Metal To Walter

When you’re scavenging, pick up and store scrap metal. You can sell scrap metal to Walter in Megaton for ten caps each, plus some XP. It might not be a lot, but it adds up, and it’s certainly worth a lot more than the vendors will pay for it.

To get access to this deal, just find Walter at the water processing plant in Megaton and fix some pipes for him. You’ll need a Repair skill of 30 to do this. Mentats or the Vault 101 Utility Jumpsuit can be used to temporarily increase your repair skill if it isn’t high enough.

Sell Pre-War Books

Every now and then you’ll come across an undamaged book out in the Capital Wasteland. Don’t sell these to standard vendors. Instead, take them to Arlington Library just west of the Jefferson Memorial, along the banks of the Potomac. You can sell these to a Brotherhood of Steel scribe for 100 caps a pop. This is an easy way to make a lot of money.

Sell Brotherhood Of Steel Holotags

You won’t be able to sell these until you unlock the Citadel in the main questline, but holding onto any Brotherhood of Steel holotags you find is worthwhile. You can sell them to Scribe Jameson in the Citadel for 100 caps each. These are infinite as Brotherhood of Steel members will constantly spawn in the Capital Wasteland, so be sure to check the bodies of any dead ones.

Get Medical Insurance

Well, not exactly. Once you’ve got a home to call your own and some spare caps, it is time to get the infirmary and the laboratory upgrades for your abode. The infirmary will restore your health and fix your damaged limbs. While sleep does that for free, the infirmary also cleanses your body of radiation, free of charge. This is huge, as it costs a lot to get doctors to do it, and Rad-Away is scarce at the beginning of the game. This will also allow you to sell most of the Rad-X and Rad-Away you find, netting you a nice amount of caps as you scour the wastes.

Next up is the laboratory. You may want to role-play as a chem-addled Raider, and that’s fine, it’s definitely a fun way to play the game. But, if you want to avoid addiction and the steep costs Wasteland doctors charge to cure it, the laboratory is your best friend. It allows you to create one random chem for free and allows you to purge your body of addictions, all free of charge. This allows you to make the most of the benefits of chems without having to go through stat-reducing withdrawals.

What vendor has the most caps in Fallout 3?

1 Answer. If you invest in the caravans via the Merchant Empire quest, the caravans are by far the richest – they will stock between 500 and 1200 caps each (roughly). Most other merchants top out at less than 500, although Moira Brown can apparently go as high as 3,000.

How often do traders restock fallout3?

The vendors restock every 72-hours game-time.

How do you get a lot of caps in Fallout 3?

all you have to do is once you get ammo from a dispencer, drop it and get more, drop it get more and repeat. Enslaving nameless NPCs is also a quick way to earn caps if you’re playing a evil character. Slaving works well, and if your repair is high enough then just about anything can be perfect CND.

Who is the best merchant in Fallout 3?

  • Megaton Craterside Supply.
  • Rivet City Flak and Shrapnel’s.
  • Tenpenny Tower Commander Whatshisface.
  • Underworld Tulip (I think she had good stuff)

What does dogmeat mean?

1 or less commonly dog’s meat : meat for or fit only for dogs sometimes : offal, carrion. 2a : dog flesh used as food.

Who’s the strongest companion in Fallout 4?

Fallout 4: The 15 Best Companions, Ranked

  1. 1 Curie. When you first meet Curie, she doesn’t look anything like a human being.
  2. 2 Paladin Danse.
  3. 3 Strong.
  4. 4 Nick Valentine.
  5. 5 Dogmeat.
  6. 6 Cait.
  7. 7 Preston Garvey.
  8. 8 MacCready.

Why is dogmeat the best companion?

Dogmeat is a special companion, since he can learn the “Attack Dog” skill if you unlock that Perk (you’ll have to have a Charisma rank of at least 4 to do so). But besides being super useful, Dogmeat is — well, a dog.

Does dog meat have a perk?

Although Dogmeat doesn’t have a particular perk like the other Companions, he does have some skills that give him a bit of purpose. When you talk to Dogmeat, you can command him to search for enemies, locate items, and even perform a trick.

paradise falls and those random caravans

just outside, Megaton, RIvet city, Canterbury commons, and paradise falls you'll find the caravans, maybe outside Agatha's shack too.

yeah you can normally get some combat armor off Moira, Guns are a bit of a problem from her though.

Theres also a merchant in underworld.

If the next one is called, because of his MO, the underwear bomber, you'll know I'm on to something. Calvin Trillin June 16, 2006.

there are i think 8 or 10 caravans and they go to several locations (more then just cities) like agratha's house, and some other small people held up somehwere.

FALLOUT 3 - 10 Most HIDDEN Unique Items

I met her at the airport and managed to. Stuff all of her things into the trunk of my car. She had so much junk as if she was going to travel around the world. She had a suitcase on wheels - no bulldozer - a real suitcase on wheels, like the kind rich people stuff with.

There was no bra or panties, and this was easily guessed through the translucent thin knitted fabric of Chinese consumer goods. I bought this T-shirt specifically to make my wife look even sexier in it. My wife also liked this T-shirt, and she often wore it on her naked body even in winter, and even now, in such incredible heat, she even went out in it.

To the officer's cafe located in the next house for semi-finished products for our dinner. And my insidious plan immediately matured: to excite my wife to the limit and retreat to the loggia, from where, through a small strip.

And in the evening he and Vlad were sitting on the bank by the fire, listening to the sound of the river, and above them stretched the Milky Way. Which can only be seen at the end of August, and the stars fell.

They seemed to know each other forever.

Start moving in any direction, and began to quietly make my way through the bushes to the light of the ceiling lamp turned on in the cabin. However, my caution was unnecessary, because the guys turned on the music, which drowned out my cautious steps.

I only risked bumping into someone if he decided to retire in need.
