  I haven't made a FAQ in quite a while, but vast fun I have had playing 
Fallout 3 plus the fact is has tons of quests, locations, and things to do
made me decide to make a complete walkthrough of the game, from beginning to
end. And to enjoy everything that you can get out of it.

  Fallout 3 is the 3rd game of the Fallout series. The first 2 were major hits
and cult classics, with incredible plot and substance to satisfy the RPG
gamer in everyone. Fallout 3 was changed a little. It is now a first person 
shooter, where as the previous 2 were top down turn based combat games. 
Because Fallout 3 is a first person shooter, many things were changed in the
game that wouldn't work in a non-turn based game. Many good things were left
out because of this, but the overall fun is still there, making for a fun game
with a huge world to explore.
  Things to note. The game is a first person SHOOTER. This means that combat
is a lot harder than with a turn based game, because you actually have to aim
and attack things manually instead of a system where your stats affect how
good you hit. There is an adjusted V.A.T. combat system that helps with the
popular aiming that Fallout 1 and 2 had. Sadly they didn't extend this to all
weapons, so guns are the only weapons you can aim at body parts. That doesn't
make the other weapons any less fun, just not as beneficial as guns. 

  There are also FAQS which explain the combat system, stats, perks, and other
things. I won't go over those here. I will simply tell you what to pick and 
what to do. Saves a lot of reading.

  Some things to remember
  1) Always heal by resting if possible. 1 hours rest in a bed will heal all
     your wounds. Save your healing Stims for emergencies.
  2) Early on use melee weapons and save ammo. Save the ammo for the harder
     foes. Most weaker enemies can be beaten with melee weapons easy.
  3) Save often. Fallout 3 has a lot of glitches, such as getting stuck in 
     objects, lockups, etc. Save often. I'll try and tell you when.
  4) Do not use any books until level 5 when you get the Comprehension perk.
     This doubles all book raises from 1 point to 2. Well worth it.


  You start the game by watching the Intro.

  1) New baby. You are born, and choose your sex, name and appearance. Pick a
     appearance you like, you will see your face often during VATS fighting.
     Fast forward a year.

  2) BABY STEPS (Quest). Follow your Dad's instructions. Walk towards him. 
     Next open the gate when he leaves and look at your special book. You will
     choose your stats for the Prologue. Make your strength 10, luck 10, and 
     perception 1. Average the rest out evenly for best melee ability without 
     worrying about dying. Follow Dad out of the room. Fast Forward to age 10.
     You arrive at your 10th birthday party and get your Pipboy.

  3) GROWING UP FAST (Quest). Talk to Amata in front of you and get the 
     [GROGNAK THE BARBARIAN] do not use this yet. Talk to Old Lady Palmer and
     get the [SWEETROLL]. Talk to Stanley and get the [KID'S BASEBALL CAP].
     Butch will eventually come to start a fight. just dodge him and soon the
     fight will be broken up. Talk to your dad to continue. 

  4) Once he opens the door enter the hallway and run into Beatrice who will
     give you a poem. Before going downstairs, head upstairs to where Officer
     Kendell is. Get behind him and crouch. Save game. Pick his pocket (reload
     if you fail) until you get his [2 STIMPAKS]. Wait for the Overseer to 
     come up stairs and listen to his conversation. Bastard. Now go all the 
     way downstairs to the left to the reactor room and talk to Jonas. Dad
     will enter and give you a [BB GUN] and [BB AMMOx50]. Follow him through
     the door to the test range. Shoot all 3 targets then shoot and kill the
     Radroach that enters. Hit R2 to enter V.A.T.S Mode to aim. Stand for the
     picture to be taken.  Fast forward 6 years to age 16.

  5) FUTURE IMPACT (Quest). When done take the [MEDICINE BOBBLE-HEAD] that is
     on the table, this increases your Medicine skill +10. Enter the next
     room and take the [STIMPAK] that is on the doctor tray cart. Go out into
     the hallway where Amata is being harassed. Talk to Wally Mack and trick
     him into being angry with Butch. They will leave. Go in and talk to the
     teacher. Ask to skip the test and you can just pick your skills. TAG
     melee weapons, repair, and small guns for the Prologue. Leave the room.
     Fast forward 3 years to age 19. 

  6) ESCAPE (Quest). You are woken up the Vault is in turmoil. Time to fight
     and Escape!. Amata gives you some picks and [10MM PISTOL]. Open your 
     dresser and take your items. Go to the Desk and take your BB gun, ammo, 
     and the [BASEBALL BAT]. Open the first aid kit on the wall and take the
     items. Enter inventory and equipt your bat and hat/suit. Ready your bat
     and save the game.

     Run out into the hallway and to the right and run towards Kendell. Attack
     and kill him. Then kill the roaches. Use V.A.T.S if you want. Search 
     Kendell and take his items. Equip his security helm/armor. Save again. 
     Continue down hallway and Butch will come out asking for help for his 
     mother. Follow him, quickly run into the next room where his mom is under
     attack from 3 roaches. Kill them before they kill her. If they do, reload
     and try again. Search roaches and take the [VODKA] bottles on the floor.
     Butch will thank you and give you his [TUNNEL SNAKE OUTFIT]. If you are
     hurt head to the bathroom and drink or use them to heal. Save the Stims.

     Continue to the lunchroom and kill the 3 roaches there. Search body. Run
     upstairs and kill roaches fighting Officer Gomez. Enter shop with Andy
     and take [2 STIMPAKS] by the fallen cart. Continue down the hall and 
     enter the room you will see 2 people talking. Save game. Follow the one
     guy down the hallway you will encounter 2 guards. Kill them fast they 
     have guns. Make use of V.A.T.S. Take their stuff, continue upstairs and
     kill some more radroaches. You'll fight Security Chief Hannon. Take 
     his stuff and enter room with dead mechanic on the floor. Search him and
     toolbox and take items. Save.  Continue and enter room where Amata is 
     being interrogated. The guard will attack. Kill him. If the Overseer 
     attacks for some reason reload. Talk to the Overseer and threaten Amata
     to get his password and key. Search all lockers/desks in the 2 rooms and
     take the items. 

     Continue to next research area, drink from water fountain to heal if 
     needed. Save the stims. Search Jonas body and the 2 desks about and take
     all the items. Head to the room on the left and talk to Amata. Enter the
     back room and search the dresser and take items. Enter room next door and
     take items. Time to enter the Overseer door. Search the next room and 
     take all items, then use the computer terminal to open the Secret tunnel.
     Go in and you'll get to the vault entrance. Note the locked door on the 
     right. Activate the keypad and the door opens. Amata comes to talk to you
     but get ready, the locked door opens and 2 more guards come out. Kill 
     them and take their stuff. Enter the door they came through and go into
     the north room for more stuff. Run back through the Vault and you'll find
     more Radroaches to kill.  Head back to the vault door room.
       Enter your inventory and repair any items you can combine in order to
     save space and make your items better. Now this is going to be your
     permanent save game, so that way if you replay you don't have to do the
     prelogue again. Go ahead and save, then head to the vault exit. You will
     be able now to redo everything and pick your stats/skills to what you

     You should have

     Vault Lab uniform (+5 science)
     Vault utility uniform (+5 lockpick/+5 repair)
     your medicine bobble-head
     your Grognak book (you didn't read this yet right?)
     about 16-18 stims, radroach meat, and a bunch of misc items.

     Your new character you want to have the following stats. 

     Strength:      6
     Perception:    6
     Endurance:     6
     Charisma:      1
     Intelligence:  9
     Agility:       6
     Luck:          6

     And TAG Repair, Lockpick, and Explosive.  Its now time to begin the game.

     As you level up, you do not want to raise any skill above 50. With the
     +10 you gain per bobble-heads, plus the 40-50 skill points from books,
     you want to keep skills about balanced for now. You want to get lockpick
     and science to 45 (you get +5 from outfits), and speech, repair and your
     small guns skills to 50 asap. The rest can raise after.

     As for perks, pick these perks at these levels.
     Lv2:  Luck +1
     Lv3:  Perception +1
     Lv4:  Educated
     Lv5:  Comprehension (now you can use books as you find them)
     Lv6:  Toughness
     Lv7:  Gunslinger
     Lv8:  Strong Back
     Lv9:  Commando
     Lv10: Finess
     Lv11: Endurance +1
     Lv12: Sniper
     Lv13: Silent Running
     Lv14: Cyborg
     Lv15: Pyromaniac
     Lv16: Actionboy
     Lv17: Better Criticals
     Lv18: Concentrated Fire
     Lv19: Admantium skeleton
     Lv20: Grim Reapers Spirit

     As you find items to sell, these are the items you DO NOT want to sell
     to the general store. Save these items at your house. I suggest the desk
     and locker right by your bed..so you can sort items and rest quick.

     DO NOT SELL to the general stores...or use

     Scrap metal
     lunch box
     sensor module
     cherry bomb
     Nuka-cola Quantum
     Tin can
     Abraxo Cleaner
     Pre-war books

     The following items you want to keep about 10 of, sell the rest

     Paint guns
     Toy cars
     Radscorpion poison gland
     surgical tubing
     leather belt
     deathclaw hand
     medical brace
     fission battery
     firehose nozzle
     pilot light
     lawnmower blade
     motorcycle gas tank
     motorcycle handlebars





  Upon exiting the vault you get 200xp and level up. Raise your lockpicking
to 45 and speech to 13. For your perk, Raise luck to 7. 

  You exit the vault into the sunshine. There is a road. Take a left and go
down the hill to a abandoned rundown town. This is SPRINGVALE. Take some time
and search every abandoned house for items. You'll find a safe, some cabinets
and footlocker/suitcase. Search every mailbox, both postal and house. Get all
the items from everything. Items of note are a gun in the safe, a copy of
[PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED] and [3 FRAG GRENADES] along with other items. 

 There is one occupied house on the north side where a woman named SILVER
lives. Talk to her nicely, and try and get some caps from her, either all or
part. You'll get some free caps out of it. 300+ Nice.

  Just to the north/ne is a larger building when you get close it will show
up as SPRINGVALE SCHOOL. Get close enough for it to register on your map, but
do not go there yet. Now head south towards a big weird structure just over
the hill. This will be your home base of MEGATON. Lots to do here.


   South of SPRINGVALE is the junk city of MEGATON, your home base. As you 
approach you'll see a Robot at the gate, DEPUTY WELD. He will open the town
for you. Just to the left of the entrance is a bum MICKY, who wants purified
water. Give him any purified water you find, he gives you good karma for it.
Now enter the city. The Sheriff is waiting for you. Talk to him but DO NOT
TALK ABOUT THE BOMB YET. Your speech isn't high enough to get extra money.
Talk about everything else though, but not the bomb.

  Head right to the 2nd house, the WATER PROCESSING PLANT. Inside is WALTER,
speak to him to get a quest to fix 3 leaking pipes. 2 of them are on the 
ground on hills, the 3rd is actually on the roof of the CHILDREN OF THE ATOM.
Fix them and return. He will now offer to buy scrap metal for a great price.
At least until he dies, which he does usually during the game.

     your map.

   ) Go to LUCAS SIMMS house, equip VAULT UTILITY UNIFORM and pick the level
     50 door lock. Enter. You'll gain a level. Raise speech to 33 and pick
     PERCEPTION +1 as your perk. Head upstairs to back room and take the
     [STRENGTH BOBBLE-HEAD] and steal the [HUNTING RIFLE] on the shelf.

   ) Find the Sheriff and save. Talk to him about disarming the bomb and 
     reload until you pass the SPEECH check.

   ) Find MR. BURKE in MORIARTY'S SALOON and accept his quest to get the 

   ) Talk again to the SHERIFF and rat out MR. BURKE, go back to the SALOON.

   ) While the SHERIFF talks to MR. BURKE, stand between them, ready your
     [10MM PISTOL] and maybe take a psycho. Save. When MR. BURKE starts to
     stand up hes going to shoot the SHERIFF. Enter VATS and kill BURKE as
     fast as you can. Reload if the SHERIFF dies.

   ) Loot BURKE, talk to the SHERIFF. (he might have walked outside).

   ) Disarm the Bomb and talk to the SHERIFF again to receive your house.

   ) Find the COMMON HOUSE and loot it dry.

   ) Talk to LUCY WEST (check her house) and start the BLOOD TIES quest. Get

   ) Find JERICO'S HOUSE. Inside on the floor is [GROGNAK THE BARBARIAN].

   ) Find BILLY CREEL'S HOUSE inside you can steal 4 [PRE-WAR BOOKS] and a
     couple holo-tapes, but the holo-tapes aren't useful.

   ) Find the MEDICAL CLINIC and you can steal some useful [STIMPAK] and 
     other items. A [HOLOTAPE] is on the table. Listen to it then talk to DOC
     CHURCH to start THE REPLICATED MAN quest.

   ) Finally, stop by CRATERSIDE SUPPLY again. Get the HOLOTAPE on the table
     and talk to MOIRA. Sell all your excess stuff, pick up some ammo for 
     your rifle and 10mm, and pick up the ROCK-IT LAUNCHER SCHEMATICS. You 
     won't have much caps left, but you'll get plenty soon.


   ) Leave Megaton and head NE. Halfway to the SUPERDUPER MART you'll see a 
     barn silo and abandoned house. Search it for [CHINESE ARMY TRAINING
     MANUAL] and some misc items.

   ) In the SUPERDUPER MART parking lot you'll probably find some raiders.
     Search the Bodies and Nuka-cola machines.

   ) Enter SUPERDUPER MART right door, turn right and jump counter into a 
     small room. Loot everything and get [LASER PISTOL]. Save game.

     building, fast travel to MEGATON, and empty everything in your house

     all for A LOT of Mirelurk meat. Go back to MEGATON, unload, rest, buy, 
     repair, what ever. Now head to SPRINGVALE SCHOOL.


   ) There is a fenced in gate with radioactive barrels. Pick lock and enter

     to lower your radiation level after leaving.

   ) Head around back where 3 raiders hold up. Kill and loot the area. Enter

    is a path up through an arch up into the mountain. Going up will take you
    to a depression with a random encounter. The path branches left and right,
    take it right (east). The next area is on top of the SE part of the 
    mountain. You can get there from the east side. You know your close when

    all and loot everything. You'll find [GROGNACK THE BARBARIAN], a
    [PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED], and [BOARD OF EDUCATION] a named Nailboard weapon.

  ) Sometimes random spawn will be here, fighting each other. From the 
    shacks, you want to head SE over a hill or 2, and you'll get a weird radio
    signal, and your rad meter will start acting up. Soon you'll come to a 
    crashed spaceship which has taken out a house. Search the spacecraft for
    the great [ALIEN BLASTER] and about 120 [ALIEN POWER CELLS]. Use this
    weapon sparingly, its powerful but limited ammo. 

  ) Head east/south east down the hill and past the bridge and you'll run into

    a [RADIATION SUIT] and [DC JOURNAL OF MEDICINE]. Head south to a truck 
    cab and in the container box is another [RADIATION SUIT] and a [BIG BOOK

    CRITICALS as your perk.

    so get ready. Grab all your FRAG MINES, and if you want, big weapons. 
    We will have good target practice on them. Missile launchers, Mini guns. 
    Or your weapon of choice. But definitely Mines. If you have any Bottlecap
    mines bring those for the sewers. When ready make sure its daylight and
    head back to VAULT 92 and go east towards OLD OLNEY.


  ) All right.. DEATHCLAWS! Time to kill some giant lizards!  Deathclaws are
    very fast, their attacks ignore armor, and are tough to kill. The easiest
    way is to simply lay a line of mines a little apart and just let them
    run through the mines crippling their legs. Then kill away. Good time to
    use big guns at the crippled DEATHCLAWS. Go through the streets of OLD
    OLNEY and kill them, there is about 7. There is minor loot on some bodies
    about town. There are 2 entrances to OLNEY SEWERS.

  ) Enter the sewers. More Deathclaws about. Bunch of loot about including
    and [PROTOTYPE POWER MEDIC ARMOR]. Behind a level 100 locked door is a
    [MINI NUKE] but you can't pick that yet. 

  ) There is a PROTECTRON in a room but its useless against Deathclaws. Go
    ahead and activate it, and just kill it for its loot.

  ) Leave the sewers and head east out of the city. You'll see a pond where
    some Mirelurks will pop up. Kill them and loot their eggsacks. Head south
    and you'll see a red rocket and a broken down orange trailer truck. Loot
    the trailer for 5 (maybe 1 in machine) [NUKA-COLA QUANTUMS]. If you run
    into an encounter with some people fighting a DEATHCLAW, let the Deathclaw
    kill them (they will loot your quantums if they win).  A mailbox just 
    North of the truck holds a [DUCK AND COVER]. 

  ) Go East towards the barn silo and find CHASE ACRES DAIRY FARM.


  ) Some Raiders make their base here. Kill them and loot everything. You'll
    find a [PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED] in the silo and [GROGNAK THE BARBARIAN] on
    the 2nd floor of the barn. 

  *** Have some fun. Go up in the silo tower and wait till dark. Shoot one
      of the cars down below and watch the fireworks. You can actually look
      west to the orange truck you looted earlier and shoot the cab way over
      there from here, and watch that explode also. I shot it with a 10MM. ***

  ) Keep going east towards the electrical towers and you'll find a little
    building, the MDPL-16 POWER STATION.


  ) Some minor loot here. Including a [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM]. Head NE towards
    THE REPUBLIC OF DAVE on your map. 


  ) As you approach the gate you will be questioned. Just tell them you wish
    to speak to DAVE and they will let you in. Close the gate behind you. Now
    head directly up to the main building and enter.

    him you are a representative of the wastelands. You can then talk to him
    about a few things (100% SPEECH check) and and convince him to turn over
    his KEY. Learn what you can and ask about the election and if you can 

  ) Save. This quest is a bit buggy. Talk to each of the 4 voters one at a 
    time, making sure they go to vote, and leave the voting box (don't get
    stuck). You can talk to ROSIE and BOB and SPEECH check them into running
    for president themselves. Also talk to JESSIE and SHAWNA. Once all 4 of
    them have voted, talk to DAVE. He will leave to check the vote. When he
    leaves, you are free to loot the [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] bottle on the safe, 
    and the [OL'PAINLESS] Rifle in the safe. 

  ) Leave and enter the "MUSEUM' building. Take the [PERCEPTION BOBBLE-HEAD]
    and any other items you wish. Fast travel to CHASTE ACRES DAIRY FARM
    and head south towards the broadcast tower you can see. Half way there
    on the right side are some car husks and small radioactive pools. In the
    car shed is a [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] and some ammo boxes. Continue south 
    to the RELAY TOWER KX-B8-11.

  54. RELAY TOWER KX-B8-11

  ) At the Relay tower enter the gate and turn on the power. Now head SE to 
    the edge of the rocks. Down below is a Sewer drainage tunnel. Look on 
    your local map if your having trouble seeing it. Inside is some loot 
    including [DC JOURNAL OF MEDICINE] and [PRE-WAR BOOK].

    also about. Once inside Raiders will appear to ambush you. Some items 
    and [MISSILE LAUNCHER]. Kill the raiders and loot the area.

  *** There are a bunch of cars on the road outside the diner. Try and get
      all 4 of the blue cars burning and watch the fun  ***

  ) North of the Diner on the road is a Bus which has [US ARMY FLAMETHROWER
    RECIPE]. Now you want to head Due south towards the TEMPLE OF THE UNION
    which is already on your map.


  ) Entering this small area you'll be challenged and let into the Temple.
    Head upstairs and talk to HANNIBAL HAMILTON to start the HEAD OF STATE
    quest. Talk to CALEB SMITH and he will request you get a picture of the

    out. Fast travel to the MALL NORTHWEST. Wait about 24 hours and the group
    should appear. HANNIBAL will talk to you again about assaulting the
    slavers, but tell him to wait while you take care of it. 

  ) Now go kill the slavers at the MEMORIAL, use good cover. Loot everything.
    There are many trip wires and mines on the path around the MEMORIAL, go
    around and disarm/pick up everything. Now report back to HANNIBAL and he
    will thank you with a [DART GUN SCHEMATIC]. At the soonest opportunity
    make yourself a DART GUN which is a awesome weapon you should keep on you
    all the time, useful to cripple legs of tough opponents.

    the CONCENTRATED FIRE perk. Fast travel to MEGATON and unload/sell. Pick 
    up all the LINCOLN ARTIFACTS you have stored in your home and return to

    your speech boosting clothes on) in this order...


    Do not sell the LINCOLN HAT or REPEATER, they are nice items for you to
    use. Sell the rest. Through the small door near the MEMORIAL steps is

    to the restaurant area. On the way up to the roof you will find the body
    of THEO, one of the Rangers who was trying to get ammo to his buddies. 
    A ammo container is near his body which you can access. 

  ) On the way through the hotel you will find a broken PROTECTRON robot. Make
    sure you take the battery out of it, you will need one to help the Rangers
    off the roof. 

  ) Once you eventually get to the roof, you will encounter the 3 Rangers who
    are stuck. You can talk to them and have the option to give them the ammo
    that you found with THEO, but don't do that. Just talk to them and they 
    will tell you to give the battery to DONOVAN who will fix the express
    elevator. Wait until all 3 of them enter the elevator, then enter it also.

  ) Now listen carefully. This is a good time to get a unique weapon, and one
    of the best light armor in the game. You and the 3 rangers will arrive
    in the reception area (the street-level access area) at the bottom of the
    elevator, where a group of Super Mutants will be waiting. You and the 
    Rangers have to kill them off and fight through them. You WANT the woman
    BRICK to die in this battle. Either by the Super mutants or by your hand.
    You can kill her during the firefight without any backlash. Just re-load
    if she doesn't die. 

  ) BRICK carries a set of [RANGER BATTLE ARMOR] which has great defense and 
    great special abilities. All the Rangers do, but you only need 1 set. She
    also carries a unique mini-gun [EUGENE]. Make sure to get both these 
    items. Make sure at least one of the other Rangers survive, if not both.
    Once the battle is over, they will tell you they are heading back to the
    Ranger compound and will thank you for the help.

  ) Before you head out you can find a [TALES OF A JUNKYARD VENDOR] on the 
    second level of the entranceway. Go ahead and exit the hotel and back into
    VERNON SQUARE. Go north and you'll instantly run into a big crater with
    a crashed DELTA rocket. At the bottom is a SEWER. Enter and inside are
    a couple Super Mutants and a [DC JOURNAL OF MEDICINE]. 

  ) Exit the sewer and head north. Directly north of the crater is a small
    alleyway behind a car. Don't go there yet, but remember it. Go northwest
    and you'll see a SEWER ENTRANCE on your local map, its at the north end
    of the northwest alley. There is some minor loot inside, plus a [DEANS
    ELECTRONICS]. Exit the SEWER ENTRANCE and return to the small alleyway
    that is north of the crater. Enter the alleyway to a Super Mutant outpost.
    Kill them and loot. Keep going and you'll find the VAULT-TEC HEADQUARTERS.


  ) The HQ has been invaded by a couple Super Mutants, who might be in a fight
    with the robotic security still left in the building. 

  ) You enter in the GUEST RELATIONS area, not much here. Kill the foes and
    loot what you want. The lower stairways are blocked. The left upper stairs
    lead to the OFFICES, the right broken stair leads to the ADMIN area. You 
    can go up the broken stairs on the right and take off your armor/put away
    weapon and you can jump up to that level. There is a [TALES OF A JUNKYARD
    VENDOR] on the table. Enter the door to the ADMIN area.

  ) In the corporate OFFICE area, there is a well hidden [BIG BOOK OF SCIENCE]
    in the northeast room (has a big hole in the floor). Its on a shelf on the
    other side of the hole, you have to walk on the ledge and look up, the
    book is with some other ruined books. A [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] is in the room
    next door on a shelf. 

  ) In the ADMIN area there is a [GROGNAK THE BARBARIAN] in the west part. 
    There are 3 terminals you need to access to gain entrance to the MAINFRAME
    terminals 1 and 2 are on the top level, and terminal 3 is down one set of
    stairways in a lower level. This releases the MASTERBRAIN robot, which
    you can just shoot. 

    *** There is a bug/quest bug that using all 3 terminals still won't open
    the door to the Mainframe. If this happens, you need to go to the lower
    level of the ADMIN area (past terminal 3) and into the bottom part of the
    mainframe room. Then by unequipping your armor/putting away your weapon,
    try jumping on one of the pipes in the wall, then up on top of one of the
    computer frames. From there you can get close to the mainframe to use it.
    At this point in the game you don't need to do this.   ****

  ) Now exit the building and head back towards the SEWER. just to the north-
    east of the SEWER is the VERNON EAST/TOKOMA PARK metro. Go ahead and 


  ) Near the entrance is a [LYING CONGRESSIONAL STYLE] in the ticket book, and
    down stairs under the escalator is a small tunnel ending at a Super Mutant
    hideout. A [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] is on a shelf. Careful, some traps are 

  ) Now head east down a very long and curvy tunnel system and eventually you
    will reach the exit to TAKOMA PARK. 


  ) Get the weapons out, Super Mutants don't like you <grin> Oh, did i mention
    theres a Super Mutant BEHEMOTH about? 

  ) You'll enter TAKOMA PARK at the west side of a long street. Careful, 3
    Super Mutants are heading down the street, and the cars ahead of you are 
    going to blow up. Save time, blow up all the cars/bus's yourself and wait
    in ambush for the Mutants. 

  ) Enter the little store in front of you NIFTY THRIFTY'S for a unique, but
    kinda worthless baseball cap. Exit and continue up the street east. On 
    the right is a orange tracter trailer rig, in the back is some loot. Up
    the street to the northeast is a Super Mutant outpost. Now at the end
    of the street is a ruined building on the left, you need to go through 
    that to an industrial area.

  ) You will go over a hill and see a factory in front of you. There might be
    some Super mutants, maybe fighting TALON company mercs. Let them kill each
    other. Finish off the rest. 

  ) Before you enter TAKOMA INDUSTRIAL factory, head southwest to a gate and
    open it. There are some tractor trailers on the right. HIDE and stealth
    to the right, up the ramp on the furthest blue trailer. At the top in 
    front you will find a note and an artillery switch. Why? Because in the
    car parking lot in front of you are some Super Mutants and a BEHEMOTH. 
    Repeated pushing of the button will drop artillery shells to clear out
    the parking lot. Stay hidden and level the area. You can finish off the
    BEHEMOTH normally if you get bored.

  ) Loot the Mutants and enter the small TAKOMA AUTO shop. There is an [US
    ARMY FLAMETHROWER RECIPE] inside. Exit and go back northeast and enter


  ) Some Super Mutants inside, take them down. At the entrance door there is
    a walkway that goes up to a observation area. Just on the other side is
    a wooden walkway that you can jump down to get a [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] that
    is behind the generator in a box. a [LYING CONGRESSIONAL STYLE] is in the
    other half of the warehouse.

  ) There is a radioactive pond and some ghouls behind TAKOMA INDUSTRIAL, but
    there isn't really anything back there to get, so ignore it. Exit and
    fast travel to the RANGER COMPOUND. Go inside and talk to REILLY. She will
    give you a reward (pick the Ranger Battle Armor) and you can talk to her
    to map out areas. Once you get her device, just talk to her again and she
    will give you about 3800 caps for all the areas you have mapped. 

  ) Now leave and fast travel to DUPONT STATION, one of the last areas in DC
    that we have to explore.


  ) A Raider area, they have made this circle into a base. There are many
    Raiders in the circle, and in the outlying abandoned buildings and alley-
    ways. They also have trapped their areas very well also. Take some time
    and clear out the entire area of Raiders. 

  ) Directly east from where you arrive at the DUPONT CIRCLE STATION, is a 
    alleyway that takes you to a little store LADY FRUMPERTON'S FASHIONS.
    Inside is a [TALES OF A JUNKYARD VENDOR] on top of her safe. 

  ) On the east side is the entrance to the DRY SEWERS. Go ahead and go in, 
    you will fight some TALON mercs inside, and later on some Super Mutants. 
    a [DEANS ELECTRONICS] is on a shelf in a utility room. Clear the tunnels
    and loot, and exit back into DUPONT CIRCLE.

  ) To the northeast over some rubble is the SUNKEN SEWER which you can enter
    but it has high radiation so prepare. Inside you can find [US ARMY 
    FLAMETHROWER RECIPE] on top of a safe. Clear and loot and return to 

  ) Well, thats about it for Washington DC, you have cleared the entire
    inner city of evil-doers. Time to finish up clearing the wasteland. Fast
    travel to the CORVEGA FACTORY and head due south. Just as you reach the 
    buildings of DC, you will see a big sewer pipe. Enter to the ROCK CREEK


  ) Really not much of note in here, except 1 [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] on a high
    ledge about half way through the caverns. I wouldn't even waste my time
    trying to get it. Go in and back out. 

  ) Now, head east towards the big water tower. Follow the road east and you
    will see a vehicle yard with about 4 army trucks inside. Turn right and 
    directly south is the entrance to the NATIONAL GUARD DEPOT. Go ahead and
    kill the 2 PROTECTRONS outside, but don't go in, we aren't ready yet. 

  ) Fast travel to KAELYN'S BED AND BREAKFAST (kill any raiders) and follow
    the road to the west. You want to keep going west until you see some 
    power lines and towers. In the center is a small building, and to the left
    you will see a billboard. Just behind the billboard is a shack with a 
    [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM]. Grab it then head to the small building, the VAPL-58


  ) Entering the power station you'll get a [DEANS ELECTRONICS] on the table, 
    and a [MINI NUKE] up on the above light, you'll have to jump or shoot it
    down. Climb the disguised ladder on the east wall to the roof. On the mat
    is a [US ARMY FLAMETHROWER RECIPE]. CAREFUL! sometimes this book gets 
    glitched and disappears under the rug. If it disappears on you, just 
    re-load from your auto saved game and try again. 

  ) Leave the Power Station and head north along the power line towers. The 
    3rd tower has a wooden enclosure, and loot. Along with a [MINI NUKE] there
    is the 1ST KELLER FAMILY TRANSCRIPT HOLOTAPE. Make sure to get it. 

  ) Now look to the northwest, you'll see a large ruined house. Head there. 
    Sometimes a random encounter will spawn at the house, like raiders. From 
    the house you want to head north/northwest to the small river. You'll see
    across the river a little power complex. Head across to the MDPL MASS


  ) You'll probably run into a couple Raiders about. Kill them and enter the
    Station. Inside are a few more Raiders, one guy named TORCHER. Kill them
    and loot. You'll find a [GUNS AND BULLET] on the left wall, a [NUKA-COLA
    QUANTUM] in the safe, and the [TORCHER'S MASK] on the TORCHER Raider.

  ) exit the Relay Station and go north over the big hill. Passing the ruins
    of the metro railings, you'll see a few big buildings to the north. That
    is your goal, the ROOSEVELT ACADEMY.


  ) This large complex is a base for Super Mutants, they inhabit every 
    building, and a couple roam the grounds. Kill any that are wandering about
    outside, then its time to enter the buildings and loot. 

  ) The ROOSEVELT ACADEMY is 3 floors. I believe the [PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED] 
    and the [DC JOURNAL OF MEDICINE] are both on the ground floor. 


  ) The LIBRARY has a [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] on a desk.
  ) Connecting the 3 areas underground are the MAINTENANCE AND EVACUATION
    TUNNELS. Clear them out and on a shelf is a [PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED].

  ) Exit the complex and head north, to an abandoned town. This is FADED POMP


  ) Some misc loot scattered through the abandoned houses. One north house
    with a big fireplace has a [PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED] in front of the fire-

  ) Contine north towards the big structure/broadcast towers up on the hill. 
    Right at the base of the rocks on your local map you will see the SEALED
    CISTERN sewer. Enter and inside is the [EXPLOSIVES BOBBLE-HEAD]. 

  ) Exit the CISTERN and go up to the building, just register it on the map, 
    there isn't anything inside. Now, look to the southeast, you'll see a red
    shack and a outdoor drive-in. Head to the red shack, there is a [GROGNAK
    THE BARBARIAN] in the shack. Head to the drive-in to discover THE SILVER


  ) Not much at the drive-in, but a ENCLAVE helicopter will drop down to the
    hill to the east and drop off a few troops. Good time to blow them up. 

  ) From the Drive-in head northeast (or north from the ENCLAVE hill) and you
    will see a orange truck/trailer and a broken bridge. This is DROWNED 


  ) Some Raiders have a little camp here, plus once in a while a couple Giant
    Radscorpions might show up. In the back of the orange trailer is a 
    [TUMBLERS TODAY].  Now head directly north and you will come upon a 
    small shack camp of Super Mutants, MASON DIXON SALVAGE.


  ) This camp is fortified by Super Mutants. Its nice that it has limited
    entrances, SNEAKING and dropping some mines does wonders. Kill the Mutants
    and loot the area. There is a prisoner you can release also.

  ) In the east shack is a [TUMBLERS TODAY]. Sometimes it might be under the
    bed too far to reach. A grenade might pop it out. In the west shack are

  ) Head north again. You'll come to a huge open area with some huge Con 
    Towers north. In the middle of the open area is a tent. Inside is a

  ) Now its time to head north to the huge Con Towers, SATCOM ARRAY NN-O3D.
    Head northwest to the left of the towers. Near the west base is a little
    red shack, and inside is [SHISHKEBAB SCHEMATIC]. On the roof of the 
    shack is a [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] that you'll have to shoot or jump to get.
    Now head northeast to the SATCOM ARRAY.


  ) This trio of towers make up NN-03D. They consist of towers A, B, and C. 
    There are also some Raiders both on the towers and inside. Kill and loot

  ) In tower C there is the only real good loot. a [PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED] is
    on a toilet, and on the very top dish tower there is a target dummy that
    has 2 [MINI NUKES]. I wouldn't even bother with towers A and B. 

  ) Head east from the towers down into the valley. You will see a little 
    building with the power line towers. This is the MDPL-21 POWER STATION.


  ) Not much here except a [NIKOLA TESLA AND YOU] inside the station. Fast
    travel back to the SATCOM ARRAY NN-O3D and this time head west/northwest
    towards FORT CONSTANTINE, which is already on your map.


  ) There are 3 structures that compose this area. Near the entrance gates
    is the CO QUARTERS HUT, and the larger building the PERSONNEL OFFICES.
    Down the road up on a hill is the BOMB STORAGE BUILDING. For now, clear 
    any robots roaming the outside area and enter the small CO HUT.

  ) In the buildings are plenty of robots of all types. The CO'S HUT has a
    underground passageway that leads up to the BOMB STORAGE building. Along 
    the way you can find [GUNS AND BULLETS] on a bed, [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] in
    a broken fridge in the kitchen, [BIG GUNS BOBBLE-HEAD] in the basement

  ) Following the underground passage, you will enter into the LAUNCH CONTROL
    BUNKER. a [BIG BOOK OF SCIENCE] and [DUCK AND COVER] are on desks about.
    You have all the special keys to get around, so no door should be any 

  ) Continue on to the BOMB STORAGE basement. There are some locked storage
    rooms and the main vault room. Lots of loot, and a [GUNS AND BULLETS] in
    one of the locked storage rooms. Inside the main vault room is the 
    and some [MINI NUKES] along with another [MINI NUKE] upstairs. 

  ) After clearing out any enemy robots, you can leave the building and go
    down the hill back towards the CO QUARTERS HUT, and then enter the 
    PERSONNEL OFFICES building. Not much about but a [GROGNAK THE BARBARIAN]
    is behind a locked door. 

  ) Finish up and exit, and fast travel to the WKML BROADCAST STATION. Look
    to the northwest and you'll see a church. Head there. You'll find the


  ) This small church houses DRIFTER, a sniper who uses the [RESERVIST'S
    RIFLE], a sniper rifle. a [GUNS AND BULLETS] lies on the ground. Best to 
    shoot his arm so he drops the rifle off the ledge down to your level. 

  ) Now head southwest towards the left of the large rock hills you see. You
    will come upon the MOUNT MABEL CAMPGROUND.


  ) Not much here other than being an occasional spawn spot. Head north by
    northwest into the rocky hills. You next want to find the DEATHCLAW
    SANCTUARY. You might see a ENCLAVE outpost on a hill directly next to 
    the entrance to help guide you.


  ) That's right, going to be Deathclaws around, so make sure you have your
    strong weapons (dart gun, bottlecap mines, etc). As you enter the hills
    its a little confusing with a bunch of ravines and valleys. There is a
    ENCLAVE outpost stationed uphill of the entrance, so that might make it
    easier to find. 

  ) Usually there is at least a Deathclaw or 2 roaming outside, and maybe a
    ENCLAVE trooper or 2. Many times they will have already killed some of 
    each other off. Kill anything surviving and loot the outpost. Right at
    the entrance to the DEATHCLAW SANCTUARY is a footlocker with a [DUCK AND
    COVER] inside.

  ) Inside the SANCTUARY, there is another half dozen or so Deathclaws 
    roaming about so watch yourself. There is various loot on bodies through-
    out the lair, but 2 main areas you want to look for. Right at the first
    large chamber south of the entrance on the ground are the [ENDURANCE

  ) In the southeast area of the caves is a pool of red blood/water which 
    plunks water, so you can hear it when you are close. Next to the pool is
    the [VENGEANCE] Gatling Laser. 

  ) Rarely a ENCLAVE officer will be in the caves, who holds the named 
    [JACK] the Ripper melee weapon. Its not really important if you don't 
    encounter him though, the weapon isn't really that good at this point.

  ) When finished, head up to the ENCLAVE outpost and look west. You will see
    a Broadcast tower not too far away (and probably a big sewer pipe). Go
    west over to the BROADCAST TOWER KB5.


  ) This Tower is usually where a random event will occur. Go ahead and turn
    on the switch on the generator. 

  ) The Towers DRAINAGE CHAMBER (that sewer pipe you saw) just southeast down
    the rocks will lead you to a small area where you can find a [TUMBLERS
    TODAY] and some minor loot. 

  ) Now, the tower is up on a big hill and you can see a lot of area around.
    Head southwest down the hill towards a Raider camp fortified behind a 
    bunch of cars. a [GROGNAK THE BARBARIAN] is in their area in a crate.

  ) Head north towards an abandoned house filled with Raiders. Kill them and
    loot, finding a [MINI NUKE] in the tub, and a [TUMBLERS TODAY] in the 

  ) Look west and you'll see a orange truck/trailer on the overpass bridge. 
    Head southwest to access the bridge area. Once you get on the bridge
    SAVE YOUR GAME. Now head to the trailer. There will be an explosion and
    a scientist blows himself up doing something stupid. In the back of the
    trailer is some minor loot, a [MINI NUKE] and a [BIG BOOK OF SCIENCE] on
    the dead body of the scientist. 

    *** Note sometimes the explosion will glitch the scientist under the 
    truck, or someplace you can't find. Thus, make sure you save before you
    approach so you can re-load and get the BOOK off his dead body *** 

  ) Now head back northeast to the abandoned house that the raiders were in.
    Look north/northeast and you'll see a huge SatCom tower in the distance.
    Head towards it. You'll probably run into an ENCLAVE outpost half way 
    there. Now go up and enter the SATCOM ARRAY NW-05A.


  ) A few Raiders and a scientist is in the tower. Kill them and you can find
    some codes on the scientist. A [CHINESE ARMY TRAINING MANUAL] is on the 

  ) Head up the tower and just before you reach the top dish you'll enter a
    room with a terminal. You can get the locations to a couple other towers,
    plus can activate the "Highwater Trousers" orbital missile platform. 
    Climb the ladder onto the top outside dish, and run up to the edge so
    you can see the Wasteland landscape. If you look up you can see a bunch
    of missiles falling to earth, hitting and exploding into Mini nukes.

  ) Exit the tower, then head west and as you go down the hill you will come
    across some docks with a few raiders about. Kill them and loot. A [MINI
    NUKE] is in the Raider loot, and a [NIKOLA TESLA AND YOU] is on the roof
    of the blue boat by the dock. 

  ) Head west from the dock and up on the hill you can see a destroyed power
    tower of some sort. Climb up the hill to it, then head south following
    the power lines/towers. You'll quickly come to the MDPL-05 POWER STATION.


  ) This small enfenced area holds a dead body and next to it is a [DARTGUN
    SCHEMATICS] and a [DEANS ELECTRONICS]. Continue south towards another
    SatCom array tower, SATCOM ARRAY NW-07C.


  ) There is probably going to be a ENCLAVE outpost set up near the tower 
    base. Entering the tower you'll find some ENCLAVE scientists who have 
    killed the ghoul inhabitants. If you climb up to the dish array, you 
    might see 2 ENCLAVE Vertibirds fly over (if your quick enough you can 
    destroy one of them as it heads away.. I blasted one with my Gatling 

  ) Nothing really in the tower, between the tower and the broken tower next
    to it is a SCAVENGER who turned the broken second tower dish into a 
    little house.

  ) Head east from the ARRAY tower towards the overpass highway. There is a
    broken down truck with a [PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED]. Keep going south on the
    overpass highway and you'll eventually come to an ENCLAVE outpost. Kill
    the troops here. Continue south and you'll reach the ABANDONED CAR FORT.


  ) A bunch of piled up cars, there is a resting/ammo area in the center. You
    can find a [TALES OF A JUNKYARD VENDOR] here. 

  ) Head south from the fort, and you'll go over a little hill and see a 
    radioactive gas area with ant bodies about. At a ant egg clutch pile is a
    dead body of a Raider with a [DC JOURNAL OF MEDICINE] next to it. Now 
    head west and you will find SHALEBRIDGE.


  ) SHALEBRIDGE is a sparse area with some ants about. Kill them. There are 
    2 ant tunnel systems here. The SHALEBRIDGE TUNNELS and the SHALEBRIDGE
  ) Enter the SHALEBRIDGE TUNNELS first, the entrance is kinda weird looking.
    Inside you will find a group of friendly ants being attacked by INVADING
    ANTS. You want to kill any enemy INVADER ANTS. Searching one will let you
    have a message about the other ant colony. You can examine the egg clutch
    pile near a pool which will allow you to inject a [STIMPACK] into the 
    pile to help the colony.

  ) Near the pool is a ANT RESEARCHER, sometimes dead. He carries a [BIG BOOK
    OF SCIENCE]. You can exit and wait 3 days and the RESEARCHER will re-
    spawn, giving you endless BOOKS. 

  ) Now go to the other ant tunnels, the SHALEBRIDGE HILL. Inside you want to
    kill the enemy ants, and take down the ANT QUEEN. 

  ) When finished, head south from SHALEBRIDGE towards a broadcast tower. The


  ) You might run into some Super Mutants in the area, and maybe see a fight
    between them and a couple Vertibirds. Nothing is at the tower, but north
    of it in the valley nearby is a sewer entrance, the SEWER ENTRANCE TO
    DRAINAGE CHAMBER. You will find a access key on the table, use it on the
    working computer terminal to open the floor. Go down to find 2 dead
    Chinese soldier bodies. There is a rare [CHINESE COMMANDO HAT] along with

  ) From the tower head east. You will see on top of a high hill a little red
    shack. Head up there to find an abandoned shack. Inside is a snipers nest
    where you can find a [DEANS ELECTRONICS], [GUNS AND BULLETS], [KELLER
    FAMILY TRANSCRIPTS #4], and in the locker the [VICTORY] sniper rifle. 
    This sniper rifle will cause enemies to be knocked down on a critical hit
    so its nice. 

  ) Outside there will probably be a lot of targets you can shoot from up on
    the hill at the shack. Some super mutants, maybe Talon Mercs appearing, 
    and looking east you can see a big red rocket structure, head there that's
    ROCKBREAKER'S LAST GAS. (you might be able to shoot the ENCLAVE troops 
    at ROCKBREAKER'S from the shack). 


  ) Not much here except a ENCLAVE outpost. Near the Nuka-cola machines, 
    either on top of one, or behind, is a [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM]. 

  ) Head north and you'll come to a jumble of tractor trailer cabs, the FIVE


  ) A group of 4 trucks and trailers in a circle, with a few Raiders has a
    [MINI NUKE] and a [US ARMY FLAMETHROWER RECIPE] in back of one of the 

  ) Clear the area and head south/southwest. You will find an old campground
    with a bunch of campers, and maybe some Raiders, the EVERGLOW NATIONAL


  ) This overgrown campground has a bunch of camper trailers and probably 
    a few Raiders about. One camper has a [GUNS AND BULLETS], but entering it
    will trigger a Raider/Mutant spawn to appear outside and fight each other
    so just hide and wait, and finish up who ever survives.

  ) Leave the campground and head east and soon you will see a large mess
    of little red shacks to the south/southeast. There will be a few enemies
    about, and in a couple of the shacks you can a [TALES OF A JUNKYARD 
    VENDOR] in the largest shack. In another shack is a [MINI NUKE] and a 

  ) From the shacks you want to head southwest to a small path that leads 
    through the rocky hill that will take you to a radioactive dump site, 


  ) There is a bunch of radioactive containers about, and 2 small buildings.
    The buildings are connected by a small tunnel. In one of the buildings is
    a [DC JOURNAL OF MEDICINE] and the other holds a [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM]. 

  ) Exit the buildings and fast travel to the east side of the map to the 


  ) You have all the codes now for the Armory. The Depot building itself is 
    in bad shape, with much of it destroyed, and you'll have to follow a 
    winding path of destroyed rooms and areas to go through the area. There is
    a lot of loot still in the DEPOT so its well worth the searching.

  ) You'll start in the NATIONAL GUARD DEPOT part of the building. Traverse
    your way through eliminating any robot foes about. Not much worthwhile 
    to get yet.

  ) Pass through the NATIONAL GUARD TRAINING WING, finding a [TALES OF A 
    JUNKYARD VENDOR] in a room near a safe. 

  ) Continue to the DEPOT OFFICES where a [DUCK AND COVER] is on a counter.

  ) You'll exit back into another part of the NATIONAL GUARD DEPOT, and in 
    front of you on the wall to the left is a electrical switch. Throw it and
    the ARMORY UTILITY DOOR will light up down in the ruined building. Hop
    down towards the door, and on that level is a [NIKOLA TESLA AND YOU] in 
    a nearby room. 

  ) Enter the ARMORY UTILITY room, there is a switch to open the lower levels
    on the wall. Head down into the ARMORY and you'll find tons of loot. The
    [SMALL GUNS BOBBLE-HEAD] is just before the BUNKER door. Also about is
    a lot of weapons and ammo and armor. 

  ) Since you have the KELLER CODES access the terminal and open the BUNKER
    door. Inside after killing a Glowing One Ghoul, are the [EXPERIMENTAL
    MIRV] Fatman launcher, 5 [MINI NUKES], a [US ARMY FLAMETHROWER RECIPE], 
    and a [NUKA-COLA QUANTUM] with other misc loot. 

  ) Exit the DEPOT and head back to MEGATON to sell, rest, etc.


  Well, your almost done. You've pretty much ran about the entire map and 
  killed a bunch of stuff, not a whole lot left. Its time to finish off the
  ENCLAVE in the area and finish what your DAD started. 

  Wear your best armor, take your best weapons, no need for misc items you 
  should have hundreds of Stimpacks built up for healing. Bring a FATMAN, 
  your NUKA GRENADES, And your favorite weapons of choice. 

  Fast travel back to EVERGLOW NATIONAL CAMPGROUNDS and head southwest to the
  marker on your map for LITTLE LAMPLIGHT.



  ) This little cavern town is run by children. When you enter, the MAYOR
    MACCREADY will greet you. 

  ) There is one child you want to find, BIWWY (BILLY), who you can get the
    [WAZER WIFLE] laser rifle from. KNICK KNACK the shop owner can sell you

  ) Talk to MACCREADY and tell him you want to enter VAULT 87 through MURDER
    PASS. He will open the gate for you. MURDER PASS is populated by a lot of
    Super Mutants so blast your way through. [TALES OF A JUNKYARD VENDOR] is
    in the southeast area in a small alcove, and in the southwest is a 
    [US ARMY FLAMETHROWER RECIPE] on a table. Just before VAULT 87 is a 

  155. VAULT 87

  ) VAULT 87 is actually a very large Vault, with a ton of levels. It is full
    of Super Mutants, so fight your way through it. There is a [NIKOLA TESLA
    AND YOU] near the MURDER PASS entrance. Go left down the stairs then left
    and near a mannequin its there in a box. A [PUGILISM ILLUSTRATED] is 
    on the catwalk level in the LIVING QUARTERS behind a locked door. 

  ) You will find a detention level where FAWKES the friendly Super Mutant 
    awaits. Free him from his cell and he will help you clear out the VAULT  
    of enemies. He will also retrieve the G.E.C.K. From its radioactive 

  ) Once FAWKES retrieves the G.E.C.K. you will have to exit the VAULT, but
    before you can you are ambushed in one of the exit hallways by the 
    ENCLAVE. You awaken in a RAVEN ROCK detention cell.


  ) You awaken from the ambush in a RAVEN ROCK detention cell questioned by
    COLONEL AUTUMN. After some questioning the President will call him away
    and talk to you, wanting you to meet him. Get your gear from the locker
    in the room and exit. 

  ) Its time to clear out the ENCLAVE base. Kill all the troops you see. There
    is a bunch of loot here, especially power armor and items from all the 
    troops. There are 3 levels of RAVEN ROCK, the only valuable item you want
    to make sure to get is the [ENERGY WEAPONS BOBBLE-HEAD] on the second
    level. Get it before you proceed to the CONTROL ROOM at the end of the
    second level. 

  ) After talking to the President, take the FEV vial and agree to help him.
    Then talk to him again and convince him to destroy the ENCLAVE base after
    you are gone. Now leave and proceed to level 1. There will be some 
    Presidential robots helping you fight the remaining ENCLAVE troops. Finish
    clearing the last level and exit RAVEN ROCK. 

  ) Outside you will see COLONEL AUTUMN'S Veribirds leaving the base before
    it starts self-destructing. Also outside FAWKES has arrived to find you,
    and is wiping out the leftover ENCLAVE troops on the ground. Talk to 
    FAWKES, and recruit him if you want. 

  ) Fast travel to the CITADEL and head to the lab to talk to ELDER LYONS and
    some of the Brotherhood. He will then ask you how everything went, turn
    over the Presidents FEV virus, and tell them that RAVEN ROCK is destroyed
    and soon you will be launching an assault on the MEMORIAL. 

  ) Once the Robot is activated, follow the PRIDE PLATOON out of the building
    and out of the CITADEL. You'll have a fun battle sequence coming up, so
    get ready. The LIBERTY PRIME robot will head towards the MEMORIAL, 
    destroying all ENCLAVE troops in its way. Follow it far enough back so
    that any Vertibird rockets won't hit you while they are shooting at the
    Robot. Eventually you will reach the JEFFERSON MEMORIAL. Clear out all
    remaining ENCLAVE troops. (or let the Robot do it).

    *** If you want you can decide screw the Robot, your going to pave the 
        way. Equip your big guns (FATMAN, ROCKET LAUNCHER, what ever) and 
        in the areas that you can, run ahead and kill the ENCLAVE troops 
        yourself. At this point you should be plenty powerful to wipe them
        out.    *****

  ) At the MEMORIAL, enter the GIFT SHOP area and clear out the ENCLAVE troops
    on guard. When ready for the end of the game, enter the ROTUNDA area
  ) You now have a few options how to end the game. All of them involve you
    dying. So it doesn't matter, its up to you. You can turn on the Purifier,
    or have LYONS do it. Either way, game ends, water works, everyone is 
    saved. Happy ending. Miller Time. Sorry you won't get to enjoy it.



   Well thats about it for the game. This walkthrough wasn't designed for you
 to find every area, or every skillbook, but to find and do most things in
 the game. Also how you go about the areas or kill the enemies are up to you,
 but there are many ways to go about doing things. 

   Feel free to email me with problems you might catch, such as directional
 mistakes, spelling, a skill book that is in an areas that i didn't mention,
 you get the idea. Don't email me with "why did you do this first, or that".
 This is my walkthrough, not yours. You don't have to do the areas in the
 order I put them in. 

  Now that you have played and learned the game, the next time you play you
can make it a little tougher or different. Play on hard mode, cut back your
intelligence so finding skill books is more important. Limit your weapons or
try playing the game not using the VATS targetting system. 

  Thats about it. Hope you had fun with the game, and good luck on your next
