Fallout: New Vegas pre-order bonuses detailed

Pre-order Fallout: New Vegas through GameStop, Amazon, Steam, Walmart or Best Buy, and get... a bunch of stuff! None of it looks to be super exclusive - largely armor and usable items - but it'll give you a little leg up and a new look if you want it. There are four different packs - the details of each, in Bethesda's words, are below:

The Classic Pack (GameStop):

  • Armored Vault 13 Suit - Extensively patched up and dotted with piecemeal armor, this outfit is an homage to the classic ending of the original Fallout. Vault 13
  • Canteen - This handy device is useful for staving off dehydration and providing a small amount of healing in the Mojave Wasteland.
  • Weathered 10mm Pistol - A well-worn 10mm pistol that packs an extra punch despite its modest size.
  • 5 Stimpaks - Food and water are good for long-term healing, but when the fighting is fierce, Stimpaks help keep Wastelanders upright.

The Tribal Pack (Amazon):

  • Tribal Raiding Armor - Pieced together from scraps of armor, this outfit provides protection without impacting mobility.
  • Broad Machete - This heavy-bladed melee weapon does high damage against limbs and can quickly deal out a flurry of attacks.
  • 5 Bleak Venom doses - Useful on any Melee Weapon, Bleak Venom makes short of work of most living targets.
  • 10 Throwing Spears - If you would like to silently pin an enemy's head to a wall, Throwing Spears are the way to do it.

The Caravan Pack (Steam and Walmart):

  • Lightweight Leather Armor - This hand-modified suit of leather armor reduces its overall weight without impacting its ability to protect.
  • Sturdy Caravan Shotgun - Despite its rough appearance, this Caravan Shotgun will reliably fire 20 gauge shells until the Brahmin come home.
  • 4 Repair Kits - Useful for repairing any outfit or weapon, Repair Kits are a valuable tool for any caravaner.
  • Binoculars - The Mojave Wasteland is a dangerous place, but with these trusty Binoculars you’ll be able to spot trouble coming.

The Mercenary Pack (Best Buy):

  • Lightweight Metal Armor - Modified for long-range travel, this Metal Armor sacrifices some protection for mobility and overall weight.
  • Mercenary’s Grenade Rifle - Though similar to other 40mm Grenade Rifles in the Mojave Wasteland, this model has a faster reload cycle.
  • 3 Super Stimpaks - When you absolutely, positively, need to keep your blood inside your body, Super Stimpaks fix you up in no time
  • 3 Doctors Bags - Mercenaries and broken limbs go together like Iguana-on-a-Stick and Nuka Cola. Thankfully, these Doctors Bags take a bit of sting out of the inevitable crushed skull

So what do you think? Are you ready to make the call now so you can score some extra stuff, or would you rather wait for the reviews? And if you are planning to pre-order - which pack is the one for you? We'd take the Tribal Pack, for the machete.

    i remember spending a vast amount of my time in fallout three cruising the wasteland, switching between my scoped weapons to survey the scene, then back to my pistol or hunting was kind of annoying..."wish i had binoculars" i would always think...might have to get it just for those...
  • Mexicutioner - June 11, 2010 12:35 a.m.

    I wonder how much this stuff will cost to get on eBay...... Great article by the way.

    Caravan pack picture = Not-So-Shy Fonzie
  • Persona - June 10, 2010 10:55 p.m.

    I have a feeling that mods will bring much more content. Then again you can't get mods for the console.. Me thinks this will be available game anyway.. OR I hope so because it really looks like a retexture of some old featured weapons and the armor is just re-meshes =/
  • Blue2 - June 10, 2010 9:32 p.m.

    I can't wait even more, the only thing that worries me is that I pre-order by EB-games (Yes, I'm Canadian)and even though EB and Gamestop is the same store, Will i get the same pre-order stuff?
  • bioshocker - June 10, 2010 9:16 p.m.

    @db1331 there have been 3 occasions now (this console generation) where I haven't gotten it the first day after not pre-ordering it Borderlands, GTAIV and Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition
  • Gameguy94 - June 10, 2010 9:14 p.m.

    That's annoying I want ALL of that stuff why can't I ever have it all? Oh well I like the Caravan and Mercenary pack.
  • FatherTime - June 10, 2010 8:46 p.m.

    db1331, Pre-ordering isn't always about making sure you have a copy on release day. It also lets you pay for your game in smaller increments if you would like so you don't have to drop $60 bucks all at once for a new game. I know it doesn't seem like much but it helps when you are on a tight budget.
  • db1331 - June 10, 2010 8:36 p.m.

    DLC and pre-order bonuses are the worst things to happen to video games. Pre-ordering is such an archaic practice anyway. Sure if you wanted a game on release day 10 years ago you needed to pre-order, but when was the last time you went to a retail store on a release day and they didn't have shelves stocked full of the game? Now that the gaming industry has become so profitable you can bet there is no way in hell companies aren't going to have enough copies of their game in stores for anyone who is willing to pay for it.
  • Embolado - June 10, 2010 8:27 p.m.

    Hmm dosnt seem like preordering, seems like everything offered can be found in-game and now use in selling the code online :(
  • H2A2I00 - June 10, 2010 8:15 p.m.

    oh ya good point then those r life savers but i prefer having the necessary power to avoid those situations :D
  • CoD4Kamikazi - June 10, 2010 8 p.m.

    I would like the Classic Pack for when I inevitably play it on Hardcore. That canteen looks like a life saver, the armor should help from getting my torso chewed off by a vicious gecko, and I always did feel that the 9mm was a good gun, it just didn't have a lot of firepower. All these packs seem great though and I can't wait for the game's release.
  • penguinsrule3 - June 10, 2010 7:57 p.m.

    I already pre-ordered my copy at gamestop so this comes as a nice surprise.
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - June 10, 2010 7:56 p.m.

    @H2A2I00 Don't forget about hardcore mode, though...those stimpacks could be useful.
  • H2A2I00 - June 10, 2010 7:56 p.m.

    oh woops i meant amazon
  • H2A2I00 - June 10, 2010 7:56 p.m.

    seems pretty cool i personally would like to get it pre ordered from walmart because it doesnt come with stimpaks which can be found easily in the game. I remember playing fallout 3 and I was over loaded with them. I also think that the throwing spears would be awesome :D
