Fallout: New Vegas Easter Eggs

  • Blast From the Past

    Entry location: The Mojave Wasteland
    In order to find it you go to the Goodsprings Source (located south of Goodsprings). Go near the campfire near the middle of the source, there's a dude wandering around the camp fire talk to him and he'll ask you to go save his girlfriend from Geko at a rig past the broken radio tower. What you do is turn around and you'll see a broken radio tower (obvious) then go up the hill, and instead of taking a right take a left. Keep following the path until there's another hill, go up it and you'll come across a RV. Go inside it and go towards the back near the bed look to the left wall (the one with writing on it) on the floor, and you'll find The Wasteland Survival Guide! You can read it for 2 or 3 survival skill (4 if you have comprehenion perk).

  • Dino Figurine Souvenir Easter Egg

    Entry location: Novac, in the dino shop
    The store owner says that he 'might' have an extra Dino figurine souveneer. Upon opening the back door (With a slight karma hit), you will find too many dino figurines (and those bomb souveneers, too)to count. You can take as many as you want with no karma deduction. He also has about 40-ish more in his house. Not much of an easter egg, but it is a funny joke.

  • Star Wars Reference

    During the quest You'll know it when it happens, Ranger Grant asks you to report what has happened at the top of the guard post when you kill a Legion assassin, one of the dialog options when responding to him is to say "Everything's fine up here, thank you. How are you?." This is a reference to A New Hope, when Han Solo says the same thing while he and Luke Skywalker rescue Princess Leia from the Death Star.

  • Set Enemies On Fire

    Entry location: N/A
    Okay first off for this to work you need two things, first thing is a weapon called "anti-material rifle" second thing is the incendiary ammo for the rifle. Now that you have those, all you have to do is equip the rifle and ammo, and go find something to kill(that shouldn't be too hard) once you have, target it in V.A.T.S and then exit V.A.T.S and watch the poor sap spontaneously combust into flames, and that's it, you don't even have to shoot. You can do this as many times as you like without any side effects.

  • Unlimited XP, Stimpacks, Doctor's Bags

    Entry location: REPCONN Test Site
    You start the mission at the test site at the front and they tell you to go find a scientist to get the power back on. Talk to him and the other scientist too. The other will tell you to turn on the Archemedes gun. Go through the mission all the way untill you find the power box. Instead of helping either of them, overload the power box. If you go back to the guy that told you to turn on the gun he will say thats too bad that you overloaded it and will give you 3 stimpacks and a doctors bag and u will get the couple hundred experience for it. If you talk some more you see the option to tell him you overloaded the power is still there just greyed out. If you press it again you will get all of the stuff again. I have over 400 stimpacks.
