Fallout 3: How to be an evil SOB

Maybe you inhaled too much irradiated dust, but Amata is starting to get on your nerves. You can't kill her in the beginning, but a little later in the game you have a chance to return to Vault 101. Still pissed about her sassy remarks at your tenth birthday party? Let her and her dismembered limbs know how you feel.

Alternatively, you can evacuate the vault. Amata won't make it very far.

Your ability to pick pockets has more than just utilitarian applications - it can be fun! Stick an explosive into the pants of anyone who you're tired of looking at, stand back, and watch fun happen.

Note: Before you proceed, know that the following video contains parts of the game's ending, so if you haven't gotten there yet, consider whether or not you want it spoiled (though this is only one of many possible endings, they are all roughly the same).

At a certain point in the game, you receive a not-so-nice virus. Place it in the filtration system at the end, and it will spread into the water supply, killing every poor little mutant out there. It's not the most honorable ending.

    i generally do some of these things, but my character will wind up being neutral because there are certain quests i choose to do the good way for personal gain (ie: Wasteland Survival Guide)

    another badass thing that you have to do is tell dogmeat to wait on about 3o mines then experimental MIRV(or Fatman) him into space its good fun tosee a dog carcase fly out of megaton at the speed of sound, remember to stay back when firing!

    I went through and murdered everyone (well, almost) in Megaton before I blew it up. I got some decent noob gear and a bunch of caps. I took out Moira's bodyguard but she wouldn't die. I haven't gone back yet, but I give you an update when I do.

    Poor Moira...but a small sacrifice to pay for the sweet sensation of evilness. Sometimes you gotta break a few eggs to makes some omelets

    I thought I was the only who thought she sounded like Palin!

    After a certain Main Quest involving the Jefferson Memorial (first time), go back to the Vault. you should pick up a Emergency Vault 101 radio signal. after tuning in to it, you learn the new password to the door. go into the vault and do whatever you want. as i stated before, i went Jason on them. yes, i accidentally wrote "also, i will everyone" when i was supposed to write Also, i killed everyone.

    I would say you are cold-hearted, and definetly sociopathic, if this game was a psychological exam. I have yet to try the evils of Fallout 3, but it doesn't appeal to me, anyway.

    Man I might just have a wee bit of an evil nature: I slaughtered the town of megaton not with a bomb but with a 10mm. It was fun; I even killed the little daddy just because I wanted his scoped45. I hack I steal I kill I hack I steal I kill I hack I steal I kill I hack I steal I kill My favorite pastime is robbing caravans by placing frag-mines in the guard and shopkeepers pockets, and beating the two head cow to death with my fists. (Is that sociopathic?) They call me a defiler but I’m just a kid that suffers from being soci-isolated underground for 19 years and picked on by an ass named butch…

    Yeah betrayals are great. I found the declaration of Independence with some chick and after we got it and left I murdered her for her gun
  • SaulFidgeonGuy - November 17, 2008 8:32 p.m.

    lol best evil thing ive done is chase simm's son around his house with a sledgehammer :L i felt pure evil betrayals are also fun: agreeing to help roy phillips then turning around and blowing his head up, blowing up megaton then killing burke and tenpenny
  • Pyro240 - November 16, 2008 4:11 p.m.

    Wow, Moira does sound like Palin...
  • Cwf2008 - November 16, 2008 12:27 a.m.

    Huh i never thought of it before but Moria does sound like Palin...makes sense seeing as they're both mentally unstable, annoying jackasses
  • TheFish - November 14, 2008 8:11 a.m.

    Blowing up a town and F*%$#@g up all the survivors is still not hardcore enough, smoke's fatality is still pretty badass.
  • TastyCakesMcgee - November 14, 2008 8:01 a.m.
