    1. Introduction-what are unique items?
    Unique items are items different from what is normally found 
    throughout the game (guns with specific names, items relating to the 
    history of the USA, larger or smaller than normal items). There are 
    many hidden around the Capital Wasteland and this guide will show you 
    how to find as many as I have encountered. I will also mention that I 
    put an effort into making this a spoiler-free guide, but if you notice 
    any spoilers make sure to let me know that I slipped up.
    2. Unique weapons
    Unique weapons are weapons that are only found once or have specific 
    names. Normally these weapons also do more damage than the original 
    weapon it's based on. You can also repair the named weapon with the 
    normal weapon. Make sure not to repair the normal weapon with the 
    special one, though, because this will get rid of it forever.
    A3-21's Plasma Rifle
    A unique plasma rifle that you can get after revealing the android's 
    true identity to it in the Replicated Man quest. You can get all of 
    the information on the android from Pinkerton, who lives in the broken 
    bow of the aircraft carrier that Rivet City is in. You'll need a 
    lockpick skill of 100 to get to him however. You can trigger this 
    quest by either talking to Zimmer in the Rivet City science lab or 
    find any miscellaneous notes or holotapes related to the android.
    Alien Blaster
    This completely unique weapon can be found, with 120 shots nearby, at 
    an alien crash site next to a dead alien. This isn't a marked location 
    on your map (unless you complete the Mothership Zeta add-on, then it's 
    marked as "Alien Homing Beacon") but it's found directly north of the 
    MDPL-13 Power Station and west and a little bit north of Greener 
    Pastures Disposal Site. The MDPL station can be found a little north 
    of the Minefield. Also, if you want the weapon (and you have the 
    Mothership Zeta add-on) and you don't want to get abducted you can 
    bring Dogmeat (found at the Scrapyard) to go find the gun and ammo for 
    you when you get nearby. A small warning for the people that have the 
    Broken Steel add-on: by having it on your system you have released 
    Albino Radscorpions to the Wasteland and when I returned to the Alien 
    Homing Beacon I was attacked by one. These beasts are incredibly 
    powerful and have a lot of health so make sure you come prepared for a 
    fight tougher than 2 deathclaws. Also, make sure to check out the 
    "alien power cells" section under miscellaneous unique items to find 
    more ammo for this gun.
    Ant's Sting
    A unique knife that can only be obtained by giving the AntAgonizer the 
    Mechanist's costume near Canterbury Commons. Before doing this, 
    however, you must decide between this and the Protectron's Gaze (see 
    section for details) because you can only get one of them. If you kill 
    the AntAgonizer you can't get the knife, so in The Superhuman Gambit 
    quest (found in Canterbury Commons) side with the AntAgonizer and kill 
    the Mechanist to get the Ant's Sting. Canterbury Commons is located is 
    north of Vault 108, south of The Republic of Dave, or far northeast of 
    Megaton. You can also get a map marker from any trading caravans found 
    randomly throughout the Wasteland (a good place to find them is right 
    outside Megaton), and ask them about their caravan. The AntAgonizer is 
    a little north of there and the Robot Repair Center (the Mechanist's 
    lair) is a little south.
    Based on the .44 pistol, you can get it by first completing the quest 
    Agatha's Song. Bring her a sheet music book that you can find in Vault 
    92 and she'll trade it for the Blackhawk. Another book of sheet music 
    (credit to Mark Bies for this) can be found in a northwestern office 
    of the Arlingon Library children's wing.
    Board of Education
    Based on the nail board, the Board of Education is found most of the 
    time on a Super Mutant in the Clifftop Shacks, which are found west of 
    Vault 92 and Old Olney and southeast of Oasis. There are multiple 
    abandoned shacks around here, all with a couple Super Mutants inside. 
    There will also be a few outside, along with a couple of Wasteland 
    captives. I'm not exactly sure which Super Mutant exactly would pick 
    it up so just kill all the Super Mutants with nail boards and look 
    through the shacks until you find it. It's also possible that it's 
    near a skeleton in one of the abandoned shacks; one of the mutants 
    often pick it up and use it against you.
    Based on the flamer, it is found in Franklin Metro Utility, which is 
    in the Falls Church Metro (located in northwestern DC). A very 
    important warning: if you have the Broken Steel add-on it releases 
    feral ghoul reavers into the Wasteland...whether you've completed it 
    or not. These reavers are probably the toughest enemy in the game, 
    dealing massive damage with a heck of a lot of health, and I ran into 
    at least eight of them throughout this metro. If you've ever 
    encountered a reaver you would know how ridiculous it is to have four 
    of them attacking at once, so if you don't have Fawkes, or even if you 
    do, I highly suggest running through as fast as possible without 
    attempting to kill anything and bring a lot of stimpaks. The ghoul 
    mask is also highly recommended if you got it from the Tenpenny Tower 
    quest. Once you find the Franklin Metro Utility at the end of the 
    Falls Church/Mason Dst Metro, follow it until you get to water. The 
    rest of the trip will be filled with radiation-emitting obstacles so 
    you should bring rad-x, RadAway or a radiation suit. Go in the water 
    and make a left through a hole in the tunnel. Follow this to the end 
    for a bunch of flamer fuel, two Glowing Ones, a Quantum, and the 
    Butch's Toothpick
    Based on the switchblade, it is found with Butch while returning to 
    Vault 101 in the Trouble on the Homefront quest. You can either kill 
    or pickpocket him to get the switchblade...that is, if you didn't kill 
    him before leaving Vault 101 for the first time.
    Colonel Autumn's 10mm pistol and Laser Pistol
    A special 10mm pistol and laser pistol obviously. The only way of 
    getting the 10mm pistol is by using a camera glitch when he falls to 
    the ground in The Waters of Life quest (no spoilers). In order to pull 
    this off the Colonel must fall close to the door. Get as close to the 
    door as you can and look directly at his body in first person. Then 
    hold the left bumper, allowing you to change the camera angle in third 
    person. Move it 180 degrees around so you're staring your character in 
    the face and you should see "search Colonel Autumn" under your cursor. 
    You can also get his uniform this way. If you have the Broken Steel 
    add-on you can get the laser pistol near the end of the main quest, 
    but not the 10mm pistol, off of Colonel Autumn when you kill him. I 
    will also mention that if you used the above mentioned camera glitch, 
    and you have Broken Steel, you can get a second copy of Colonel 
    Autumn's uniform when killing him.
    Based on the minigun, this weapon is in possession of Brick from 
    Reilly's Rangers. To find her you must activate the quest Reilly's 
    Rangers by finding Reilly unconscious in the Museum of History's city 
    of ghouls in the chop shop, located a little to the north of the 
    Washington Monument, which can be found in the Galaxy News Radio 
    quest. In order to get this one you must ask for the gun when Reilly 
    gives you a couple options to take as a gift. You can also pickpocket 
    or kill Brick if you chose the other option.
    Experimental MIRV
    Based on the Fat Man, this is literally the most powerful weapon in 
    the game. It is found in the National Guard Depot, but in order to 
    reach the armory it's hidden in you must find at least 4 of the 5 of 
    the Keller Family Transcripts, giving you the four-digit combination 
    to the terminal locking the armory door. The first one (the least 
    important one) is at the VAPL 58 Power Station, which can be found 
    northwest of Megaton, southwest of Arefu, or west of Vault 106. Follow 
    the large metal structures holding up the wire running from this place 
    (north) and it will be found in a little fort made under the third 
    structure. The second tape is found at Hallowed Moors Cemetery, which 
    is north of Big Town (Big Town is north of Megaton). The second tape 
    is found on top of the podium in there. A few useful things are found 
    in here also including a Big Book of Science, a D.C. Journal of 
    International Medicine and a Mini Nuke in a wooden box. The third tape 
    is found in the Gristly Diner (southwest of The Republic of Dave, 
    which is in the northeast corner of the map) in the back room on a 
    table. There's also a Tales of a Junktown Jerky Vender in the Gristly 
    Diner. The fourth tape is at Rockbreaker's Last Gas (look at the 
    Victory Rifle for the location) in the abandoned shack on a table. 
    This shack also holds Dean's Electronics and Guns and Bullets, along 
    with two small radroaches in a cage named Fluffy and Jitters. The 
    fifth tape is near the Anchorage Memorial (the easiest way to find 
    this place is to make it to the Mirelurk part of the Wasteland 
    Survival Guide quest). Fast travel there and head north. Look across 
    the river for a sideways truck, behind it is a tent with the fifth 
    tape in it. Once you have the 4 you need, go to the National Guard 
    Depot (found on the northern border of DC), go through the training 
    wing and offices, then back to the Depot through another door. You 
    will find an electrical switch in a dark corner to the left of the 
    door you just entered. Flip it, go into the armory and the weapon is 
    yours. There is a lot of useful ammunition in here, probably the 
    biggest stash of ammo in the game, so make sure and explore all the 
    little corners. There's also a U.S. Army: 30 Handy Flamethrower 
    Recipes book behind the weapon and the bobblehead for small guns on a 
    shelf. There is also a small drinking glass next to a larger one so 
    make sure not to miss it.
    Fawkes' Super Sledge
    A unique Super Sledge found when swapping equipment with Fawkes, who 
    joins forces with you when you release him from Vault 87 in the main 
    quest. However, you must take it with him while you're in Vault 87, if 
    not he will have replaced it with a gatling laser that can't be taken 
    the next time you run into him.
    Based on the alien blaster, this is probably the rarest gun in the 
    game. You must trigger a random event that can only happen once in the 
    game, where the gun flies through the air leaving a trail of smoke 
    behind it. When it starts to fly there is a sound like a rocket 
    exploding farther away, and there are also some power cells (ammo for 
    the Firelance and alien blasters) falling from the sky around the area 
    the event was triggered. I've actually witnessed this event twice, but 
    both times the gun was out of my reach (and I didn't bring Dogmeat), 
    so if you're not sure whether you've triggered the Firelance or not 
    let me know in detail what you think you saw (and don't forget to mark 
    where it happened). Also, make sure to check out the "alien power 
    cells" section under miscellaneous unique items to find more ammo for 
    this gun.
    Based on the power fist, it is found in the MOPL 13 Power Station in 
    the larger building. The smaller building has a Quantum and a Railway 
    Rifle schematic. The larger building will give you radiation most of 
    the time and there are Glowing Ones so bring some Rad-Away's. To avoid 
    confusion, Fisto! is located up the stairs and in the door of the 
    larger building. The MOPL 13 Power Station is found southwest of Vault 
    92 and Old Olney or north of the Minefield.
    Highwayman's friend
    Based on the tire iron, it is found in Canterbury Commons in Dominic 
    and Machete's Shed. Canterbury Commons is north of Vault 108, south of 
    The Republic of Dave, or far northeast of Megaton. You can also get a 
    map marker from any trading caravan if you ask them about their 
    Based on the Ripper (get it, Jack the Ripper?), it's found in the 
    Deathclaw Sanctuary with a dead Enclave Officer. The dead body can 
    only be found after the Enclave appear at the Jefferson Memorial in 
    The Waters of Life quest. You can find the Deathclaw Sanctuary 
    southeast of Raven Rock or southwest of Fort Constantine. I will also 
    add that if you decide to reach the end of the Sanctuary you can find 
    another unique weapon, the Vengeance.
    Lincoln's Repeater
    Found with many other Lincoln-related items in the Museum of History. It 
    can be repaired with hunting rifles.
    This weapon isn't related to any other weapon and only comes up once in 
    the game. Go to Paradise Falls, which is north of Arefu, Big Town, and 
    Megaton. You can also get a map marker for it if you go to the Nuka-Cola 
    Factory and find the Quantum shipping details note. There are two ways 
    to get this depending on your Karma choice:
    Good Karma- this place is filled with Slavers, and you don't lose Karma 
    for killing them all. The Mesmetron, along with 50 unique power cells, 
    is in the hands of the first Slaver that talks to you before entering.
    Bad Karma- you can actually be hired to recruit Slaves here and the 
    Mesmetron is needed to daze someone long enough to put a Slave Collar on 
    Miss Launcher
    Based on the missile launcher, it is found in Fort Independence 
    (southwest of Megaton). You must either pick the lock to the door or 
    pickpocket any of the people around for a key. Also, if you don't want 
    to kill anyone in the Fort you can gain Protector Casdin's trust by 
    bringing him enough technology. After you gain his trust you can kill 
    the people outside the Fort, get the key, and you won't have to kill 
    anyone inside. The Miss Launcher is in the basement, and there are 2 
    entrances to it. One requires a lockpick skill of 75 and the other one 
    can be accessed by a terminal (science 75 needed). However if you can't 
    or don't want to hack it the password is hidden in the desk near the 
    door. Once in here, find the room with a lot of terminals in it and 
    search them all for the note "Research-Missile Launcher" which gives 
    information on the Miss Launcher. The key to the room it's held in is 
    hidden in a locker in a room filled with beds (if you don't want to find 
    the key a lockpick skill of 100 is needed).
    Occam's Razor
    Based on the combat knife, it is found in the depths of Fort Bannister. 
    You can find this place directly southwest of VAPL 58 Power Station, 
    north of Evergreen Mills, or west and a little north of Megaton. You 
    must find and kill Commander Jabsco to get this razor. Come prepared 
    though; the place is swarming with Talon Company Mercs.
    Ol' Painless
    Based on the hunting rifle, it is found in The Republic of Dave in 
    Dave's safe. No one in The Republic of Dave has any significance in the 
    game besides Dave, who you must kill and bring a key back to Mister 
    Crowley in the You Gotta Shoot 'Em in the Head quest, so feel free to 
    kill any of the adults there. The Republic of Dave is found in the 
    northeast corner of the map. I will also add that if you're collecting 
    different sized items that there's a large hot plate in the Museum of 
    Dave, along with the bobblehead of perception.
    Plunkett's Valid Points
    Based on the Spiked Knuckles, it is found on Junders Plunkett at the 
    Arlington House. The house itself isn't a map location; it's a regular-
    looking house between Arlington Cemetery North and South. You must have 
    the Lawbringer perk in order to find Plunkett though. The Arlington 
    Cemetery is located southeast of Grayditch in the northern part of 
    western DC (the lighter-colored area across the river on the world map). 
    I'll also add that you can find the bobblehead of Luck in the basement 
    of this house, and a Big Book of Science on the second floor.
    Protectron's Gaze
    Based on the laser pistol, you can only get this weapon by giving the 
    AntAgonizer's armor to the Mechanist. Before doing this though you must 
    decide between this and the Ant's Sting (see section for details) 
    because you can only get one of them. Even if you kill or pickpocket him 
    you can't get it. These two are a part of The Superhuman Gambit quest in 
    Canterbury Commons. Canterbury Commons is located is north of Vault 108, 
    south of The Republic of Dave, or far northeast of Megaton. You can also 
    get a map marker from any trading caravans found randomly throughout the 
    Wasteland (a good place to find them is right outside Megaton), and ask 
    them about their caravan. The AntAgonizer is a little north of there and 
    the Robot Repair Center (the Mechanist's lair) is a little south.
    Repellent Stick
    A unique melee weapon you can buy from Moira Brown in Megaton after 
    completing the Mole Rat part of the Wasteland Survival Guide quest. As a 
    side note I recommend removing this item from your inventory before 
    completing the quest, because on my game I hadn't done so and it is now 
    impossible to remove it from my inventory.
    Reservist's rifle
    Based on the sniper rifle, it is found on a guy named Drifter in the 
    Dickerson Tabernacle Chapel that you have to kill. This place is a 
    little east of the Deathclaw Sanctuary, south of Fort Constantine, and 
    far northwest of Megaton.
    Smuggler's End
    A unique laser pistol that is found in The Citadel in Elder Lyons' 
    personal safe in the B-Ring. Taking it isn't considered stealing so you 
    won't lose Karma or anger the Brotherhood. The only way of getting into 
    The Citadel is to bring Doctor Li and company safely there through the 
    sewers in the main quest. You can also unlock the safe from a nearby 
    terminal if you lack the lockpick skill required. An easier way of 
    finding this, if you have the Broken Steel add-on, is to finish the main 
    quest and get woken up two weeks later in the same room as the 
    Smuggler's End.
    Based on the combat knife, it is found on a raider in the Raid Shack, 
    which is a little east of the Bethesda Ruins. The raider re-spawns so 
    you can get as many Stabhappy's as you want. The Bethesda Ruins are 
    located south of the Minefield and Scrapyard or north of the Super Duper 
    Sydney's 10mm "ultra" SMG
    Based on the 10mm submachine gun, it can be taken off of Sydney's dead 
    body. Sydney is in the National Archives hunting down the Declaration of 
    Independence, which is what you must do in the quest Stealing 
    Independence. You can get a map marker for the National Archives from 
    Abraham Washington in Rivet City. To find him, follow the signs in Rivet 
    City for the Capitol Preservation Society. As an added note she can also 
    be recruited, like Fawkes, to follow you around and help you kill stuff 
    during the quest, as long as she doesn't die. I've also recently been 
    informed of another way of getting the gun that doesn't involve her 
    dying, shown below (credit to Josh Gilbride for this):
    "After the 'Stealing Independence' quest, Sydney will go to Underworld. 
    While she's there go through the 'Our Lady of Hope Hospital,' [which is 
    part of the 'Reilly's Rangers' quest,] it can be found in the D.C. 
    ruins. Go through here to get to 'Statesman Hotel Mid Level,' and in 
    here you can find a skeleton with a recording next to it. Take the 
    recording to Sydney and she will give you the gun."
    The Break
    Based on the pool cue, it is found in Paradise Falls near Eulogy's pad 
    on a pool table. Paradise Falls can be found north of Arefu, Big Town 
    and Megaton. You can also get a map marker for it if you go to the Nuka-
    Cola Factory and find the Quantum shipping details note.
    The Kneecapper
    Based on the sawed-off shotgun, it is found in Girdershade by killing 
    Ronald Laren, the "protector" of Sierra Petrovita, the girl who gives 
    you The Nuka-Cola Challenge quest. Girdershade is located almost in the 
    southwest corner of the map, just a little bit north.
    The Shocker
    Based on the power fist, it is found in the Flooded Metro. The Flooded 
    Metro can be found straight east of the Nuka-Cola Factory, or you can go 
    to the bottom of the lighter-colored part of the map west of the DC area 
    (across the river). Follow the long path filled with Mirelurk Hunters 
    and Kings and you should find it at the end. A couple of helpful tips 
    while trying to find the Shocker: when you first find a floor that gives 
    you radiation and there are many Mirelurk hatchling clutches around, 
    take the west door. Also, from here on out you will be getting radiation 
    for the most part so make sure to either bring some Rad-Away's or use 
    "My First Infirmary" in your house if you bought it. Later, when you 
    have a choice of going up some flights of metal stairs, down them, or 
    through a large door, go through the large door. Also, there is a note 
    called "the Shocker glove" right next to the weapon and there's a 
    Quantum in that room on top of a gun cabinet.
    The Tenderizer
    Based on the Sledgehammer, it's found behind a utility door in the 
    Anchorage Memorial Service Entrance. However, in order to get into the 
    room you need a door component, which is found in a floor safe in the 
    Anchorage Memorial Facility, or if you have a very high repair skill 
    (about 90 I believe). You're going to need a lockpick or science skill 
    of at least 50 to open it though. There's also a note about the weapon 
    in Ted's dead body near the terminal to unlock the safe. The safe itself 
    is in the medical looking room near the terminal and Ted's dead body. 
    The Anchorage Memorial is located in the river near DC, west of the 
    Tepid Sewers.
    The Terrible Shotgun
    A unique combat shotgun found at Evergreen Mills. In the Bazaar there's 
    a guy named Smiling Jack, who has the shotgun. You can either kill him 
    and take it or shoot it out of his hand and take it before he does. You 
    can then wait a couple days and come back if you want another person to 
    trade with. Evergreen Mills is located directly west of Megaton.
    Vampire's Edge
    Based on the Chinese officer's sword, it's in a sword cabinet belonging 
    to Vance, the leader of The Family. You can get this during the Blood 
    Ties quest, and to trigger it talk to Lucy West in the saloon in 
    Megaton. This weapon must also be stolen.
    Based on the Gatling laser, it is found deep in the Deathclaw Sanctuary 
    in a big pool of blood. You can find the Deathclaw Sanctuary southeast 
    of Raven Rock or southwest of Fort Constantine.
    Victory Rifle
    Based on the sniper rifle, it's found in a locker in an abandoned shed 
    near Rockbreaker's Last Gas. However, you need a lockpick skill of 100 
    to get into the locker. You can also get Dogmeat (a dog that will follow 
    you around if you're nice to it) to search for a weapon and bring it to 
    you. You can find Dogmeat at the Scrapyard, which is a little to the 
    right of Agatha's house and south of the Minefield. The abandoned shack 
    is actually up high on a cliff near Rockbreaker's Last Gas, so look on 
    higher ground. Rockbreaker's Last Gas is located north and a little west 
    of Fort Bannister and north of Evergreen Mills.
    Wazer Wifle
    Obviously, this is a unique laser rifle. It can be found in Little 
    Lamplight by talking to Biwwy, who will sell it to you for 500 caps (or 
    250 with a high enough barter skill). Or, if you have the Child At Heart 
    perk you can get it for free. Little Lamplight is part of the main 
    quest, so once you get far enough you get a map marker.
    Xuanlong assault rifle
    Based on the Chinese assault rifle, it is found at the Jury Street Metro 
    station outside in a diner. There will be a dead man named Prime who has 
    your rifle. The Metro Station is located west of Vault 101. Before going 
    here, however, you must go to the Museum of Technology (you'll 
    eventually discover it in the main quest) and look for four different 
    terminals, he first one giving you a note addressed to someone named 
    Jiggs from the dead man, Prime. You must find the other three terminals 
    and choose the prime number out of the numbers shown. Just in case you 
    aren't very good at figuring out prime numbers I recommend saving every 
    time you find one because if you choose the wrong number it permanently 
    locks you out of it, leaving it impossible to get the gun.
    Zhu-Rong v418 Chinese Pistol
    Based on the Chinese pistol, it is found at L.O.B. Enterprises, in the 
    East Wing, in the CEO's office. This pistol actually sets enemies on 
    fire when they are shot, making the enemy lose 2 HP every 5 seconds. The 
    L.O.B. Enterprises is actually called Falls Church East on the world 
    map. This place is around the center of the western side (other side of 
    the river) of DC.
    3. Unique downloaded content weapons/items
    This section lists all the weapons, the individually named ones,  and 
    items found exclusively in the locations involved with the downloaded 
    content (The Pitt, Broken Steel, Mothership Zeta, Point Lookout, 
    Operation: Anchorage).
    3a. Operation: Anchorage
    As a quick note I will mention that all of these items you can get after 
    completing the simulation and opening up the armory.
    Chinese Stealth Armor
    The black armor that the Chinese snipers wore. Increases your sneak by 
    15 when worn.
    Gauss Rifle
    You can find this weapon in the simulation if you complete the speech 
    challenge about a weapon with more punch while speaking to the 
    quartermaster. It uses microfusion cells, only one shot before 
    Jingwei's Shocksword
    The weapon being carried by Jingwei, who you encounter at the end of the 
    simulation. If your speech is good enough you can make him surrender 
    without fighting him.
    Neural Interface Suit
    The suit needed to begin the simulation. It's given to you at the 
    Outcast Scribe Robe
    You can take this off of Olin if she's killed. If she doesn't die you 
    can either kill her or reverse pickpocket her (check the unique apparel 
    section for details on reverse pickpocketing).
    Trench knife
    The melee weapon they give you at the beginning of the simulation.
    Winterized T-5lb Power Armor and Helmet
    This is the armor and helmet you wore during the simulation.
    3b. The Pitt
    Ashur's power armor
    You can find this on Ashur if you kill him.
    Auto axe
    The basic weapon used throughout the Pitt. The easiest way to get one is 
    to talk to Marco before entering the steelyard.
    Bombshell armor
    You can get this from Everett once you bring him 60 steel ingots.
    Filtration helmet
    You can get this from Everett once you bring him 20 steel ingots.
    Gamma shield armor
    There are a few of these strewn about in the steelyard (2 or 3 I 
    believe) but I'll guide you to the only one I can remember the location 
    of. Near the beginning there is a fenced off area to the left with 
    radioactive barrels and a few trogs. Go around and find the way into 
    there. You can go in for 3 ingots but isn't necessary to get the armor. 
    At the bottom of the large hill you just went down there will be a dead 
    person, a first aid box and a few ingots. The dead guy has the gamma 
    shield armor.
    Laborer outfit
    You can get this from Everett once you bring him 10 steel ingots.
    Leather rebel
    You can get this from Everett once you bring him 70 steel ingots.
    A unique, scoped assault rifle that you can find on a few of the people 
    you fight in the hole and on some of the guards if you end up killing 
    any of them.
    Man Opener
    A unique auto axe that you can find in the Supply Plant in the 
    steelyard, on a bed deep within the plant.
    Metal blaster
    A unique laser rifle that you can get from Everett once you bring him 50 
    steel ingots.
    Metal master armor
    You can get this from Everett once you bring him 40 steel ingots.
    A unique infiltrator that you can get from Everett once you bring him 90 
    steel ingots.
    Raider commando, iconoclast, ordinance, paingiver, and throwdown armors
    Special raider armor found on the guards (called "Pitt Raiders" if they 
    don't have a specific name) throughout the Pitt.
    Slave outfits
    There are two different kinds: tattered and worn. You'll get one of 
    these in order to get into the Pitt.
    Looks a lot like noodles but definitely not as healthy in terms of rads. 
    You can get a free one if you talk to one of the Pitt guards and ask 
    about food.
    Steel Saw
    The third of three unique Auto Axes. Near the end of the main quest 
    (trying to be spoiler-free so all I can say is slave revolt) you can 
    occasionally find these on dead Pitt slaves. Note that you can't kill 
    them yourself or they won't have it; wait for them to die on their own. 
    If you can't find one, return to Adan (who is now dead) and he'll have 
    one. Not so great in terms of quality, but much easier than searching 
    random dead slaves for one.
    Steel knuckles
    Unique spiked knuckles that you get from giving Everett 30 steel ingots.
    As odd as it may seem this is the only pair of regular sunglasses that 
    I've found in the game (let me know if you've found another one). It's 
    on a mannequin in the same area as where you turn on the floodlights 
    (the room with 3 mannequins and a couch). IMPORTANT: make sure to take 
    the sunglasses first off of the mannequin first or they'll fall to the 
    bottom and you can't grab them for some reason. Don't grab the spatula 
    or the pre-war baseball cap.
    Supervisor helmet
    You can find this on the Pitt guards (the nameless ones are labeled 
    "Pitt Raiders") with helmets.
    The Mauler
    Another unique auto axe that you get from giving Everett 80 steel 
    Tribal power armor
    You can get this from Everett once you bring him all 100 steel ingots.
    Welder's mask
    You can find this on Pitt slaves with the welding-looking masks on (the 
    slaves were also probably using their Auto Axes on steel or something). 
    You can either kill them or wait for them to be killed.
    Wild Bill's Sidearm
    The pistol that you can find on the body of Wild Bill in the steelyard, 
    near the beginning of the stairs up to the large tower. Very hard to 
    3c. Broken Steel
    Alien blaster
    This is actually the second normal alien blaster you can find (check 
    unique weapons section for details on the first). The Armory Master 
    might be using it when you run into him but if not it's in a locked 
    gun case (looks like a footlocker) along with some power cells in ammo 
    boxes nearby. This will be in the armory in the Enclave mobile base. 
    Also, make sure to check out the "alien power cells" section under 
    miscellaneous unique items to find more ammo for this gun.
    Aqua Cura
    A different form of Aqua Pura that you can get from a ghoul that's 
    selling them in the Museum of History. Speak to a scribe at the 
    Jefferson Memorial after completing the main quest to learn more about 
    Aqua Pura
    The pure water that is found all over the Citadel after completing the 
    non-DLC main quest and waking up in the Cidadel.
    Composite recon helmet
    A special recon helmet you can find on the Armory Master in the Enclave 
    mobile base.
    Enclave Hellfire armor and helmet
    Found on Enclave hellfire troopers (the people with heavy incinerators 
    that are harder to kill than normal Enclave soldiers). These are 
    released into the Wasteland once you add the Broken Steel add-on.
    Holy water
    Irradiated Aqua Pura that's creating problems in Megaton after the main 
    quest is complete. Speak with a scribe at the Jefferson Memorial after 
    completing the main quest to learn more about it.
    Heavy Incinerator
    A completely unique weapon that shoots fireballs instead of a constant 
    stream of fire like the flamers. You can find this on some of the 
    Enclave soldiers that get killed by Liberty Prime while you're on your 
    way to the Purifier before the actual DLC begins. I've added it in here 
    because if you don't have the DLC you can't actually use this weapon 
    throughout the rest of the game. You will also probably encounter many 
    more of these "hellfire troopers" as you progress your way through 
    Broken Steel as well.
    Lab coat
    You can find this on a few of the scientists during the main quest. I 
    found a few on the Enclave mobile base.
    Lag-bolt's combat armor and shades
    You can find these on a man named Lag-bolt, who you run into if you 
    follow the directions in a holotape found in the Presidential Metro. The 
    holotape is labeled "Sorry, my Darling."
    Precision Gatling Laser
    A unique gatling laser that can be found in the armory on the Enclave 
    mobile base.
    Rapid Torch Flamer
    A unique flamer that you can find in the Adams Storage Facility (a 
    little bit south of the Enclave Mobile Base) on a counter with a few 
    other useful items and ammo.
    Senate employee ID
    You can find this somewhere in the Presidential Metro (I can't remember 
    where, sorry). It doesn't seem to serve any purpose, however.
    Slo-Burn Flamer
    Another unique flamer that's found in the Launch Platform Base in the 
    Enclave Mobile Platform. It's in the southeastern part on the upper 
    level on a platform with some Deathclaws that are in stasis fields.
    Super mutant blood sample
    After completing the main quest, talk to Elder Lyons about other methods 
    of assisting the Brotherhood. You'll find one of these on every single 
    super mutant you kill.
    Tesla Cannon
    A unique weapon that fires a single shot per round, but it is incredibly 
    powerful. While at the Adams Air Force Base you can use it to blow up 
    Enclave vertibirds (the helicopter-looking things they use). You will 
    get this weapon during the main quest.
    Tri-beam laser rifle
    These are the weapons of super mutant overlords. These beasts are 
    released into the Wasteland when you get Broken Steel. Be warned: these 
    things are incredibly strong, along with their weapon. While it does 
    fire three lasers per shot, it also uses three rounds per shot.
    3d. Point Lookout
    Just a basic axe. You can buy it or find it on some enemies throughout 
    the swampy area.
    Backwater Rifle
    A unique lever-action rifle that you can find on a shelf in the Chinese 
    Bunker during The Velvet Curtain quest.
    Bio-gas canister
    A special grenade that you can find three of in a footlocker in an 
    excavated muck hole. It's a little east of the Lil Tykes Playhouse, or 
    you can find it near soil survey #2 during the An Antique Land quest. 
    There are also three more near one of the other two soil survey notes so 
    make sure to look around each one. You can also find 10 more by 
    completing that quest and unlocking the safe in the USS Ozymandias.
    Double-barrel shotgun
    A powerful shotgun that you can shoot twice before reloading. Found on 
    some of the enemies.
    Cryptochromatic spectacles
    Special glasses used near the end of The Velvet Curtain quest.
    Confederate hat
    Self-explanatory, they're found all over Point Lookout.
    Desmond's eyeglasses
    Special glasses only obtained by killing Desmond. My suggestion is to 
    wait until the end of the main quest, unless you decide to side with 
    Professor Calvert.
    Fertilizer Shovel
    A unique shovel that you can get from Tribal Croatoa (at the Ark & Dove 
    Cathedral). You can get it by either using the Child At Heart perk or 
    winning a speech challenge after asking about how they grow punga fruit. 
    You can also kill him to get it but this isn't recommended unless you've 
    already completed the main quest of Point Lookout.
    Fishing pole
    It's about as useful as any other random object you find in the 
    Grifter's Fit
    Special clothing that you can find after the end of the main quest and 
    you return to the riverboat (no spoilers).
    Handyman Jumpsuit
    You can find this on Haley (at Haley's Hardware) but you have to kill 
    him to get it.
    Lever-action rifle
    Self-explanatory, you can find it in the shop or on some enemies.
    Lighthouse bulb
    The light bulb that you can put in the top of the lighthouse to make it 
    work again (or keep it for yourself). You can find it in the truck 
    wreckage, near the northeastern corner of the map.
    Lump of brain
    You can retrieve this after the main quest has been completed and you 
    return to the riverboat. It is the small bit of your brain that was 
    removed during the odd ritual you had to perform to join the natives.
    Microwave Emitter
    A unique mesmetron that you can find in a room loaded with other useful 
    items at the very end of the main quest.
    An alcoholic drink that you can make if you have the right ingredients. 
    I have also found it on an enemy once and in the shop.
    Pint-Sized Slasher Mask
    A special mask (that there are actually two of) that originally appeared 
    in the simulation in Vault 112 during the main quest. The first one is 
    in a door labeled "hotel room" at the Homestead Motel on the world map. 
    The second one belongs to a kid named Kenny in Herzog Mine. If you don't 
    want to steal it from him you can go find his teddy bear, named Kenny-
    bear, and give it to him. After that you can take whatever you want from 
    Punga fruit
    You can find these on plants all over Point Lookout and in some shops in 
    the Wasteland after returning when you complete the main quest. As an 
    added note I didn't specifically name the different kinds of Punga fruit 
    because you will most likely encounter both of them while exploring the 
    Ritual Knife
    A unique knife that you can find stabbed in a corpse when searching 
    through the caves beneath the Ritual Site. This cave will only open if 
    you trigger the quest The Dark Heart of Blackhall.
    Riverboat ticket
    Mandatory for going to Point Lookout, most likely the first thing you'll 
    get in this list.
    Yep, it's a weapon. You can buy it or find it on some enemies in the 
    swampy area.
    Small tin plates
    You can find these in the same area as the ritual knife so look there 
    for details on the location.
    The Dismemberer
    A unique axe that's obtained by completing Plik's Safari. You can find 
    his place in the Coastal Grotto location on the map.
    The Krivbeknih
    This is a book connected to The Dark Heart of Blackhall quest, triggered 
    at the Blackhall Manor. After completing the quest (you have to give the 
    book to Blackhall), kill him and take it off of him. The reason you 
    can't keep it the moment you get it is because it's considered a quest 
    item until the quest has been either completed or failed, and killing 
    Blackhall without giving him the book doesn't fail the quest so 
    completing the quest is the only option for keeping and being able to 
    remove the book.
    Toy Knife
    A unique knife found a bit south of the Turtledove Detention Camp. When 
    there, head out the southern gate. There will be a large, yellow sign 
    nearby. Head directly south until you see another sign that's exactly 
    the same. From this sign, look to the west. If you head west from where 
    the sign is you should run into a rather long line of bushes that you 
    can't walk through, with the right side ending with some green 
    mushrooms. If you find these mushrooms, walk around to the other side of 
    the bushes and look for a small box next to a tree stump a bit taller 
    than you are. The knife, along with a hockey mask, is on top of the box.
    Tribal garb
    The regular clothing of the Tribals (enemies you first run into during 
    the main quest with Desmond).
    Workman's coveralls
    Basic clothing found practically everywhere throughout Point Lookout. 
    When worn, it adds 10 points to your repair skill.
    Just a bag of yeast. Can be used to make moonshine if you have the other 
    3e. Mothership Zeta
    Adapted biogel
    Give the medic some alien biogel and he can turn it into this, recovers 
    a lot more health than regular biogel.
    Alien atomizer
    A basic gun that the aliens use. You'll find a lot of them if you kill 
    the enemy aliens.
    Alien biogel
    Weightless, it recovers more or less health depending on your medicine 
    Alien disintegrator
    Another basic alien gun, only this one's a little less common. You will 
    still find plenty of them though.
    Alien epoxy
    Another weightless piece of alien technology, only this one repairs your 
    equipped weapon when use it.
    Alien power module
    Ammo for the alien weapons found on the ship.
    Alien squid food
    Basic, but a little more uncommon, health-restoring food found 
    throughout the ship. Restores 5 health.
    Alien worm food
    Basic health-restoring food found throughout the ship. Restores 5 
    Atomic pulverizer
    A unique alien atomizer that's found on a counter next to a drone pod in 
    a small room in the weapons lab.
    Buttercup toy
    This item is a replica of one of the loading screens that shows an 
    advertisement for a robotic pony called Buttercup. Once you break all of 
    the generators you will end up in a large room with 2 floors and a big 
    electric looking structure in the middle. From the second floor go to 
    the left and you should see it on a table next to a set of stairs. I 
    also recommend exploring this room because there are a lot of useful 
    items here. A second one can be found in the same place as the atomic 
    pulverizer and a third one will be sitting on a large shelf in the 
    research lab (in the cargo hold) where there are other larger 
    Captain's sidearm
    A unique alien blaster that isn't similar to any of the other alien 
    weapon found on the ship. You can get it after killing the alien 
    captain. Also, make sure to check out the "alien power cells" section 
    under miscellaneous unique items to find more ammo for this gun.
    A unique alien disintegrator found on your way to the death ray hub. 
    It'll be near the area where you're able to spawn raiders and albino 
    radscorpions to fight each other (or where you get the Xenotech perk). 
    It's very useful mainly because it's a fully automatic weapon.
    Drone cannon
    This weapon is found on the guardian drones carry. Watch out for these 
    weapons, they shoot a single powerful shot that explodes.
    Drone cannon Ex-B
    There are actually two of these, both found in the same place. There is 
    a room where it seems to be a weapon testing area because when you hit a 
    switch and look through the window you see a Brahmin come out of the 
    warp and a robot comes out and obliterates it. After activating both 
    switches, go in the room and kill the robots; they were both using this 
    unique drone cannon.
    Drone control device
    Device found on a strong alien that can be used to release a drone from 
    its pod. This drone will be friendly and attack the aliens.
    A unique shock baton that, unfortunately, I can't remember where exactly 
    I found it. I believe I found it on the upper portion of the ship (after 
    you destroy the three generators and go out into space) but like I said 
    I don't know for sure.
    Large alien crystal
    A weightless crystal which can only be used for selling. Found on dead 
    aliens, containers and shelves throughout the ship.
    MLPX Novasurge
    A unique plasma pistol that shoots two bullets at once, but uses two 
    cells with each shot. It's in a locked safe in the cargo hold and in 
    order to unlock it you must hack a terminal in the same area.
    Paulson's outfit
    If Paulson dies, or if you kill him, you can take this from him.
    Paulson's revolver
    If Paulson dies, or if you kill him, you can take this from him.
    Samurai armor
    If you kill the samurai, or if he dies, you can take this from him.
    Samurai hat
    If you kill the samurai, or if he dies, you can take this from him.
    Samurai's sword
    If you kill the samurai, or if he dies, you can take this from him. You 
    can also find another one near the end of the little journey in the 
    maintenance level near a first aid box on a shelf.
    Shock baton
    This is the weapon that the first aliens you fight will use.
    Small alien crystal
    A weightless crystal which can only be used for selling. Found on dead 
    aliens, containers and shelves throughout the ship.
    Part of the main quest, it is received after releasing the "spaceman."
    Winterized medic armor
    If the medic dies, or if you kill him, you can take this from him.
    Feel free to let me know if there are any more items I missed because 
    since you can't return to a large portion of the ship afterwards it's 
    likely that I missed a few things.
    4. Schematics
    There are seven different weapons you can create with certain items once 
    you find the schematics for them. Also, if you find a second schematic 
    for the same weapon, the weapon's beginning quality is increased by 10% 
    (for the bottlecap mine and nuka grenade it makes more than one weapon 
    at once). This section will give you the locations of all of the 
    schematics found in the game.
    Bottlecap mine
    1. Obtained from Moira Brown in Megaton after completing the minefield 
    portion of the Wasteland Survival Guide quest.
    2. One is in Jacko's Pop & Gas stop, located northwest of Tenpenny Tower 
    and a little east of Girdershade.
    3. This one can be found in a safe in Tenpenny Tower, owned by someone 
    named Dashwood.
    4. You can buy this one from Knick Knack in Little Lamplight.
    Dart gun
    1. You can get this one from completing the Head of State quest and 
    talking to Hannibal.
    2. One is at the shop called Boutique Le Chic in Tenpenny Tower.
    3. The last one is found at the MDPL-05 power station near a skeleton 
    and a toolbox.
    Deathclaw gauntlet
    1. Found at Scott Key Trail and Campground, located south of Girdershade 
    near the southwestern corner of the world map. The schematic will be 
    found in the small trailer near a picnic table. I will also mention that 
    I ran into a deathclaw when I came looking for it so make sure to come 
    with a strong weapon.
    2. Given as a reward for completing the quest Council Seat if you favor 
    Bannon's side.
    3. First off I'm not positive whether this is the only location this 
    event can pop up or not, but I've witnessed multiple occasions where a 
    dead deathclaw was found outside the Super Duper Mart and a nearby 
    raider had a deathclaw gauntlet when killed.
    Nuka grenade
    1. It's the surprise reward for completing the Nuka-Cola Challenge 
    2. A merchant named Doc Hoff sells one. He's one of the merchants that 
    travels with a guard and a Brahmin that are usually found right outside 
    3. You must travel all the way to the end of the Deathclaw Sanctuary for 
    this one. The Deathclaw Sanctuary is located southeast of Raven Rock and 
    north of Little Lamplight.
    4. The last one is at the end of the Cliffside Cavern (the door to it is 
    actually labeled "Raider Outpost"). If you run into a door labeled "Yao 
    Guai Cave," you're going in the right direction. You can find this place 
    west of Tenpenny Tower.
    Railway rifle
    1. You can buy one from Tulip in the Underworld (Museum of History). You 
    can get a map marker to here by finding some ghouls outside the Super 
    Duper Mart (a little east of Megaton) and ask where they came from.
    2. This one is at the MDPL-13 Power Station in the power substation on 
    the workbench. This place is a little bit north of the minefield and 
    south of the alien homing beacon if you have the Mothership Zeta add-on.
    3. This is given as a reward for completing the Stealing Independence 
    quest (given by Abraham Washington in the Capitol Preservation Society 
    in Rivet City).
    Rock-it launcher
    1. The easiest one is bought off of Moira Brown.
    2. This one's in the armory of Rivet City in the ship's bridge tower.
    3. You can also buy one off of Crazy Wolfgang, a traveling merchant with 
    a Brahmin and a guard. Most of these merchants can be found right 
    outside Megaton.
    4. The last one is in the "framed quote" in Vault 101. IMPORTANT: it is 
    possible to miss this one and never be able to come back to it again so 
    make sure you get it during the Trouble on the Homefront quest.
    1. You can get one from Vance at the end of the quest Blood Ties. You 
    can trigger this quest by talking to Lucy West in the saloon in Megaton.
    2. A man named Lucky Harith is selling one. He's one of the random 
    merchants with a guard and a Brahmin that mostly appear right outside 
    3. The last one is in a Brotherhood Outcast shack located near SatCom 
    Array NN-03d. You can find this place north and a little west of 
    Paradise Falls, southwest from the train tunnel (if you have the Pitt 
    add-on), and it is the last location that's directly north of Arefu. If 
    you travel there, head directly left from where you start out and you 
    should see it.
    5. Unique apparel
    This section contains special clothing (not including DLC, those are 
    listed in their appropriate sections) found throughout the Wasteland. I 
    will also include any additional effects added when wearing the clothes. 
    Also, for some of these you'll need to use a method I've discovered 
    (that's apparently called "reverse pickpocketing"), which I'll explain 
    You have to successfully pick this person's pocket, only you have to put 
    a random set of apparel in their inventory, without getting caught (I 
    suggest saving beforehand just in case). Then, leave the area (or 
    trigger an autosave) and return to the person you just gave clothes to. 
    You should see them wearing what you just gave them now. Pick their 
    pocket again successfully and it's yours. I will also add that you can 
    give anyone any outfit or piece of armor (even power armor and raider 
    armor) as long as its damage resistance (DR) is higher than what they're 
    wearing. They'll only put the headgear on, however, if they currently 
    have a matching piece on (like a hat or a mask or a helmet). A radiation 
    suit is recommended for people with headgear as well because you can get 
    them all at once.
    Armored vault 101 jumpsuit
    Awarded from Moira Brown during the Wasteland Survival Guide quest.
    Athlete of the Wastes outfit
    You can get this in Little Lamplight or Megaton. Joseph, Squirrel, 
    Biwwy, and Maggie from Megaton are wearing it so you have to reverse 
    pickpocket them. See above for details.
    Blast off pajamas
    You can find this on Bumble in Little Lamplight, meaning you have to 
    reverse pickpocket them. See above for details.
    Button's wig
    You can find this on a small desk at the end of the National Archives 
    during the Stealing Independence quest. To trigger this, talk to Abraham 
    Washington in the Capitol Preservation Society in Rivet City. It lowers 
    your Perception by 1, increases Intelligence by 1, and increases barter 
    by 5 and speech by 10.
    Colonel Autumn's uniform
    You can get this after killing Autumn in the main quest, but you can 
    only keep it if you have the Broken Steel DLC. If you don't, check 
    Colonel Autumn's 10mm pistol for the camera glitch. Also, if you have 
    the DLC and you performed the camera glitch, you can have two of these. 
    It increases energy weapons and small guns by 5.
    Dad's wasteland outfit
    There's only one way of getting this, since you can't kill your dad 
    yourself. Continue through the main quest until Colonel Autumn "dies" 
    (no spoilers) and use the same camera glitch mentioned in Colonel 
    Autumn's 10mm pistol when your dad falls to the floor. It increases 
    lockpick and repair by 5.
    Dirty pre-war kid's outfit
    You can find this on Princess in Little Lamplight and must be reverse 
    pickpocketed. See above for details.
    Environment suit
    Awarded from Moira Brown if you return to her with less than 50% health 
    and a broken limb during that portion of her guide.
    Eulogy Jones' suit and hat
    You can kill Eulogy Jones at Paradise Falls (or reverse pickpocket him 
    if you have bad karma and want him alive). It increases small guns by 2 
    and your Charisma by 1. You can find his hat near the projector in his 
    Eyebot helmets
    You can find the first one on a table in the underground sewers that you 
    must take Doctor Li and company through. You can also go back in case 
    you missed it. There's another one (credit to "D Clayton" for this) if 
    you go to Canterbury Commons and upgrade Crow's caravan trader up to a 
    certain point and it's a free gift. The third one (credit to 
    "planescaped" for this one) can be found at an Enclave camp that's about 
    halfway between Relay Tower KX-88-11 and MDPL-16 Power Station, both of 
    which are north of Canterbury Commons. When you get here you'll find 
    either a dead Enclave soldier with no clothes or anything, or the same 
    guy alive. After killing or looking at this guy you'll be attacked by a 
    few raiders, one of which is wearing the Tesla armor from the soldier 
    and your third Eyebot helmet.
    Ghoul mask
    You can get this as a reward for completing the Tenpenny Tower quest and 
    siding with the ghouls. When you wear it, feral ghouls don't attack you 
    until you attack them.
    Junior officer's outfit
    You can find this on Eclair in Little Lamplight and on Harden Simms in 
    Megaton after reverse pickpocketing them. See above for details.
    Kid's cave rat outfit
    You can find this on Zip in Little Lamplight, so you have to reverse 
    pickpocket him. See above for details.
    Lincoln's hat
    Found with multiple other Lincoln-related items found throughout the 
    Museum of History.
    Naughty nightwear
    A unique version of sexy sleepwear (with leopard print) that you can 
    find when following instructions from a note telling you to find Grady's 
    fire hose box. This box contains the key that unlocks the "package," 
    which is the naughty nightwear.
    Oasis druid hood
    You can find this on some of the Oasis residents and also on Drifter. 
    Check the Reservist's Rifle for more information on Drifter.
    Oasis robe
    Found on a couple of the Oasis residents.
    Oasis villager robe
    Found on most of the Oasis residents.
    Prototype medic power armor
    (Credit to an email from Jarod for this one)
    This is found in the Old Olney sewers. Old Olney is in the large, 
    lighter-colored rectangle near the northeast corner of the map. In case 
    you don't know, Old Olney is basically a breeding ground for Deathclaws, 
    so make sure to bring some heavy weapons, maybe a dart gun, or have 
    Fawkes or Sergeant RL-3 take care of them. When you fast travel there, 
    make a right and head down the road until you run into a hole in the 
    ground with a pipe at the bottom. Make a right here down another road. 
    On the left, you should see a large, mostly intact building with a few 
    garages, which apparently used to be a fire station. If you want a note 
    giving you directions to a Nuka Cola truck, head up to the front door of 
    the fire station and the note will be near the skeleton. From here, make 
    a right down the next road, then go left in between the two destroyed 
    buildings on the left to find the entrance to the sewers. Make a left, 
    go through the large door, go through the door on the left of this room, 
    and take the first door on the right of this hallway. You'll run into a 
    small opening with a dead wastelander, mercenary, and Brotherhood 
    initiate. You'll find this special armor on the Brotherhood guy. It 
    gives 25 to rad resistance and decreases your Agility by 1. However, 
    this isn't the only special thing about it; the first time you put it on 
    it actually talks to you. It periodically does this, mostly warning you 
    when you enter sneak mode and [CAUTION] or [DANGER] pops up. According 
    to the note it comes with, it will dispense a Med-X and use it if your 
    crippled limb needs it.
    Ragamuffin outfit
    You can find this on Penny in Little Lamplight by reverse pickpocketing 
    her. See above for details.
    Red's bandanna and jumpsuit
    You can only get these by either killing Red (Big Trouble in Big Town 
    quest) or take it off her if she dies. Also (credit to James Carter for 
    this), when you first save her in Germantown, when you choose to give 
    her a weapon you can take these out of her inventory at that time.
    Shady hat
    Rewarded from Moira Brown after completing the Mirelurk portion of the 
    quest (you don't need to do the optional one, it only gets you five 
    stealth boys).
    Sheriff's duster and hat
    Lucas Simms is wearing these. You can either kill him or have Mister 
    Burke kill him during the Power of the Atom quest.
    T-5lb power armor and helmet
    Similar to the winterized one found in the Anchorage add-on, it can be 
    found in Fort Constantine, only you need Dave's special key to get it. 
    You can get this key from Dave in the Republic of Dave in the northeast 
    corner of the map. Also, if you've completed the You Gotta Shoot 'Em in 
    the Head quest, Mister Crowley will be wearing it the next time you 
    visit him, so now your only options are reverse pickpocketing or killing 
    Tacoma Park little leaguer's cap
    You can find this at Tacoma Park (obviously). It's in a shop labeled 
    "Niftythrifty" on the door hanging on a coat rack near the entrance. It 
    increases your explosives and energy weapons by 5.
    Talon combat helmet
    It sounds common, but the only one I've come across is on Commander 
    Jabsco. Check Occam's Razor for location information.
    Tenpenny's suit
    A little obvious but I'll explain it anyways. Tenpenny's wearing it, 
    sitting in his chair at the top of Tenpenny Tower. You can either kill 
    him or reverse pickpocket him (see above for details).
    The AntAgonizer's costume and helmet
    You can either kill her or convince her to stop what she's doing to get 
    these from her (The Superhuman Gambit quest in Canterbury Commons).
    The Mechanist's costume and helmet
    You can either kill him or convince him to stop what he's doing to get 
    these from him (The Superhuman Gambit quest in Canterbury Commons).
    Three Dog's glasses and head wrap
    You can either kill him or reverse pickpocket him to get these (see 
    above for details on reverse pickpocketing). An odd thing I noticed, 
    however, is that the radio station continues playing normally even after 
    he's dead.
    Vance's longcoat outfit
    You can kill Vance from the Family (Blood Ties quest, talk to Lucy West) 
    to get this one.
    Vault 77 jumpsuit
    You can find this in the slaver barracks in Paradise Falls on a shelf 
    with an interesting note next to it. And before you ask what it means 
    and where it came from I'll tell you now that I can't answer either of 
    Wasteland scout uniform
    This is found on Lucy and Knick Knack in Little Lamplight, so you have 
    to reverse pickpocket them. See above for details.
    6. Quest items
    You're probably wondering why I added this section, mainly because you 
    can't remove quest items from your inventory. I've found that there are 
    many quest items that are removable after completing or failing a 
    certain quest at a certain time, killing someone during or after a 
    quest, etc. so I've compiled a list of all the "keepable" quest items 
    I've found. I'll also note that removable quest items found in DLC areas 
    (the only ones I've found are in Point Lookout) I have put in their 
    respective sections and will continue to do so if you know of any that I 
    Android component
    You can actually get 3 of these if you know what to do. First of all, 
    this is part of the Replicated Man quest. To get the first one, a woman 
    will randomly run up to you at one point and start yelling at you. 
    Convince her that you're going to help her and she'll give one to you. 
    Now complete the quest by finding out who the android is (from Pinkerton 
    in the broken bow near Rivet City) and reveal his identity to himself. 
    You'll also get a special plasma rifle after telling him. Now go to the 
    Science Lab (where Dr. Zimmer is) and let the android (no spoilers) kill 
    him and his android bodyguards. You can then take a component off of 
    each android that was killed.
    Birch's sap
    You will get this from Birch during the Oasis quest (for a location kill 
    Drifter (check Reservist's Rifle for his location)). If you don't use 
    it, you can keep it.
    Fusion pulse charge
    This one's pretty easy to get if you know what to do. First, find out 
    about the bomb from Simms, then go talk to Mister Burke at the saloon. 
    Agree to blow up Megaton (don't worry, you aren't actually going to) and 
    complete the quest by disarming it. You can then remove the fusion pulse 
    charge that Burke gave you for accepting his proposal. It looks like 
    scrap metal for some reason when dropped.
    Ink container
    You'll be given the chance to find this during the Stealing Independence 
    quest (speak to Abraham Washington at the Capitol Preservation Society 
    in Rivet City) when speaking to the robot named Button. The easiest way 
    to finding it is to agree with him to make a forgery of the document, 
    but make sure this doesn't happen. When you return with your ink 
    container, kill Button, take the Declaration of Independence and 
    complete the quest using the real one (make sure not to miss Button's 
    wig). You can now remove the ink container from your inventory.
    Laurel's Liniment
    You will get this from Laurel during the Oasis quest (for a location 
    kill Drifter (check Reservist's Rifle for his location)). If you don't 
    use it, you can keep it.
    Lucy's sealed envelope
    You can only get this by failing the quest Blood Ties (easiest way of 
    doing this is killing an Arefu resident). I will also add that dropping 
    it will make it disappear; you can only put it in containers.
    Feel free to let me know if you've discovered any more removable quest 
    items, because I wouldn't be surprised if I've missed a few.
    5. Different sized items
    This section has other unique items that serve no real purpose in the 
    game, but are fun to collect. These items are bigger or smaller than the 
    usual size of the original item. IMPORTANT: Once you drop any of these 
    items, you cannot put them in your inventory again or they will become 
    normal sized. If you wish to move it around look at it and click the 
    right analog stick. This section will be divided into larger than normal 
    items and smaller than normal items.
    5a. smaller items
    Small Cue Balls
    Go to Paradise Falls, located north of Arefu, Big Town, and Megaton. Go 
    in the Slaver Barracks here, and they should be on the pool table around 
    the drinking glasses.
    Small Drinking Glass and Shot Glass
    Go to Evergreen Mills, located directly west of Megaton. From here, go 
    east and a little north and you should find a church-looking building. 
    Go in it and in the left corner you should see a bed and a table with a 
    rigged shotgun on it. Look around on the floor near the bed to find 
    these tiny cups. There is also another smaller drinking glass in the 
    National Guard Armory, but that is quite a lengthy challenge to get 
    into. See Experimental MIRV in the unique weapons for the full 
    Small Garden Gnomes
    Go to the SatCom Array NN-03d. Enter in the NN-03b-A and from here, go 
    up the ladder to the top and over the wooden bridge to NN-03b-B. Go up 
    to the ladder where you enter to the Capital Wasteland near the top of 
    the tower. These tiny gnomes, along with tiny large whiskey bottles, 
    whiskey, vodka, and wine can be found on a chessboard on a table.
    Small and Large Hammers
    Go to the Temple of the Union, located southwest of the Republic of 
    Dave. Enter through the gate and go to the left, but not up the stairs. 
    The small hammer will be hidden behind a toolbox, and the big one on the 
    stone workbench.
    Small Nuka-Cola Trucks
    Go to the County Sewer Mainline, which is within either side of the 
    Sewer Waystation, or through a sewer grate along the Potomac. The 
    location of the Sewer Wayststation is east and a little south of 
    Megaton. From here, follow the tunnel and take the first right. Watch 
    for bear traps and go in the door with two garden gnomes on the outside 
    of it. Go in this door and there will be a ghoul named Gallo. Kill him 
    and in the back of the room and you should see them sitting on a 
    counter. There are also a lot of useful building items in Gallo's 
    storage room located in a room next to this one.
    Small Scissors
    Go to Paradise Falls, located north of Arefu, Big Town, and Megaton. 
    Once here, go to Cutter's Clinic. You can also get a map marker from any 
    slaves you run into, or go through the main quest and you'll need to 
    save a couple kids that are from Little Lamplight. The scissors will be 
    on a little table next to the medical bed behind the screen.
    Small Shot Glasses
    There are a total of eight, one of which is listed with the small 
    drinking glass. The first one, the smallest of all, is in the women's 
    quarters in the Republic of Dave. If you don't plan on killing everyone, 
    make sure there's no one in the women's quarters before entering because 
    it's considered a bad thing to go in. The shot glass must also be 
    stolen. The next three are in one of the buildings in Big Town, a little 
    north of Megaton. You can also get a map marker for Big Town if you talk 
    to the guy with the party hat at Little Lamplight. The last three are at 
    Mason Dixon Salvage, northwest of Paradise Falls and north and a little 
    west of Arefu. The glasses are in one of the abandoned shacks there.
    Small Tin Cans
    Go to the GNR (Galaxy News Radio) Building Plaza (follow the main quest 
    and it will lead you there). Go in the Galaxy News Radio door and go to 
    the right up the stairs. Go in the doorway and turn left. You should see 
    three filing cabinets. The tiny cans should be on the shelf directly to 
    the right of these filing cabinets.
    5b. larger items
    Giant Teddy Bear
    You must have at least 20 frag mines to get this item. If you don't have 
    enough mines you can buy some, go to the National Archives, or 
    (obviously) the Minefield. This teddy bear is much larger than all the 
    other teddy bears in the game. It is located in the SatCom Array NN-03d, 
    which is located north of Arefu, east of Fort Constantine, or southwest 
    of the Oasis, at the northern end of the map. When you go there, there 
    should be 3 huge radio towers, but only one you can enter through. Kill 
    all the raiders and go as far up as possible. Once at the top, cross the 
    wooden bridge from the first tower to the second tower. Go down this one 
    and enter through a door to the third tower. Kill all the raiders here 
    and there should be a small lab setup at the bottom of this tower, and 
    behind it a doorway blocked off with wooden planks. If you look through 
    the cracks of these planks, you will see it. Make sure to save before 
    doing this because it may take a few tries. Lay down all the mines 
    between the lab setup and the wooden planks, and some will fall to the 
    floor. After all the mines are set, stand far back and shoot one of 
    them. If it works, you should see it outside the doorway now.
    Large Butter Knife
    Go to Tenpenny Tower, located southwest of Megaton, or get the map 
    marker from Mr. Burke. On the Ground Floor, go in the second door to the 
    left, make another left, and look on the counter against the wall. On a 
    cutting board, there should be a large grey butter knife next to a 
    smaller one. This item can be dropped and picked up as many times as you 
    want and it will remain the same size. It also appears as a different 
    butter knife in your inventory, even though they are read the same. This 
    unique item isn't as unique as others because there are many more 
    throughout the game.
    Large Chessboards
    Go to Fort Constantine at the northwestern part of the map (east of 
    Raven Rock). There is one in the Personnel Offices and another in the CO 
    quarters. At the entrance of the Personnel Offices, go in the first door 
    to the right (not up the stairs). The giant chessboard will be in the 
    first door to the left down this hall. Go back out to the Capital 
    Wasteland and go to the CO quarters, a small building to the left of the 
    Personnel Offices. It should be sitting on a table in the main room.
    Large Coffee Mugs
    Go to Smith Casey's Garage, located directly west of Megaton, also west 
    of the Evergreen Mills. Go in here and it will be sitting on the table 
    with the coffee machine in front of you when you enter. There are 
    actually four large coffee mugs total in here so be sure to check them 
    all because there are also 10 smaller ones.
    Large Cup and Pitcher
    Go to Rock Creek Caverns, located just above DC, close to the National 
    Guard Depot. Go through this place fighting all the Mirelurks, through 
    the water, and turn right when you can. If you don't turn right you will 
    easily get lost. There is a small room with a safe, a Mirelurk King, and 
    a couple metal boxes. The cup and pitcher will be on the floor.
    Large Duck and Cover! Books
    One is located in the Springvale Elementary School just north of 
    Megaton, and the other is in the Falls Church/Mason Dst Metro (Falls 
    Church Metro on the world map) in the northwestern area of DC.
    Large Empty Syringes/Forceps
    These are found in Fort Independence, located southwest of Megaton. In 
    order to get in here without angering any of the Brotherhood Outcasts 
    inside (if that isn't important to you then you can just kill anyone 
    outside and they'll have the access key) you must either pickpocket one 
    of the outcasts outside or gain their trust (by giving Casdin a lot of 
    energy weapons and armor) and kill them to get the key. Enter Fort 
    Independence, and go up the stairs, and look down on the lower level and 
    there should be a medicine-looking area. In this room, there are two 
    giant empty syringes, one on the bottom shelf, and the other on a bloody 
    tray on the medical bed. On the other side of this bed are the giant 
    forceps on a small table.
    Large Green Plates
    Location 1: go to Big Town, which is located north of Megaton. Go to the 
    Common House (second house on the left) and look around. It should be 
    easy to find.
    Location 2: in the Zane house at the Minefield there are two shelves, 
    one on the first floor, one on the second, each with two normal green 
    plates and one larger one in the middle. As an added note you can also 
    find one of the large teddy bears here.
    Large Harmonica
    It's at the Red Racer Factory, southeast of Megaton. Once inside, go in 
    the door on the left wall and it will be on a shelf immediately to the 
    right with a few small tricycles and a teddy bear.
    Large Hot Plate
    Go to the Republic of Dave, located in the northeast corner of the map. 
    From here, go to the Museum of Dave where you can also find the 
    bobblehead on Perception. The hot plate will be on the shelves on the 
    right as soon as you enter. This item has to be stolen.
    Large Med-X
    Go to the Red Racer Factory, southeast of Megaton. Once you reach the 
    end of the CEO Offices you'll run into a man named the Surgeon. On one 
    of his two desks you will find this (no karma is lost for taking it).
    Large Pool Triangle
    Go to the Museum of Technology, then to the Museum Station outside of 
    the Museum. Once in here, go to the big square room in the center and go 
    right, through the tunnel. Eventually, along the left wall you should 
    see some stairs. Go up these stairs, and the giant triangle will be on 
    the pool table. There is also a Grognak the Barbarian book on the small 
    table nearby.
    Large Pugilism Illustrated book
    You can find this in the Meresti Trainyard, where the Family lives. It 
    must also be stolen. You can talk to Lucy West in Megaton to trigger the 
    Blood Ties quest, then ask Evan King where you can find the Family and 
    he'll give you a few map markers. You can reach the metro station 
    through the Northwest Seneca Station and passing through Murphy's place.
    Large Stealth Boys
    These are in the Museum of Technology. One is in the atrium, in the 
    right corner, and there are two more big stealth boys upstairs on 
    display cases in the first door and to the left.
    Large teddy bear
    Location 1: This teddy bear is larger than all the other teddy bears, 
    but smaller than the giant one. It is located in the Red Racer Factory, 
    which can be found south and a little east of Megaton or northwest of 
    the Nuka-Cola Factory. Go around the desk and in the door on the right. 
    It will be sitting on a big tricycle hanging from the ceiling. Just 
    shoot the tricycle and it will fall along with the bear.
    Location 2: In the Zane house at the Minefield, on the bed on the second 
    floor. You need to kill the sniper to get the key to the house. Note 
    that you can also find the large green plates in here.
    Location 3: Go to the Victory Rifle in the unique weapons section for 
    location information. It will be on the bed in the shack.
    Large Vodka Bottle
    This is found in Tenpenny Tower, directly southwest of Megaton. Use the 
    stairs to get up to the third floor. Once up there, look for the room 
    with two empty whiskey bottles on the left and a globe on the right on 
    the pedestals to the sides of the door. Go straight forward and you 
    should see a small indent in the wall used as a counter. The large vodka 
    bottle should be sitting right next to a regular sized one and whiskey.
    Large Wrenches
    Location 1: Go to the Meresti Metro Station, which is found at the 
    Meresti Train Yard. You can go to the saloon in Megaton and talk to Lucy 
    West to trigger the Blood Ties quest, where you can also get a map 
    marker. Go in and find the family, and it's on a workbench next to a 
    normal sized wrench in the small gated area to the left of the 
    escalator. This item must be stolen.
    Location 2: Go to the Robot Repair Center, located just south of 
    Canterbury Commons.
    8. Miscellaneous unique items
    This is the "extras" section; the unique items that didn't fall under 
    any of the above categories but are still one-of-a-kind.
    Alien power cells
    I've added this because these power cells are very uncommon, but if you 
    look hard enough you can get over 500 cells (I currently have 530 and I 
    haven't completed Broken Steel yet). Here's a list of all of the alien 
    power cells I've found so far:
    -there's about 120 near the alien blaster found in the Wasteland (check 
    the unique weapons section for specifics).
    -a good amount fall from the sky when the Firelance is triggered (check 
    the unique weapons section for specifics).
    -a bit north of Fort Bannister there's a large crater (you'll know 
    you're close when you start getting rads). At the bottom of the large, 
    circular part is an overturned military truck. Under it you can find 50 
    or 60 cells (thanks to skattman1982 for this one).
    -you can find a few ammo boxes near the alien blaster on the Enclave 
    mobile base during Broken Steel (check Broken Steel items for 
    -there will be 30 or so in the same room as the Miss Launcher (check the 
    unique weapons section for specifics).
    -you can also find a good amount (I think I found about 230) during the 
    Mothership Zeta add-on, including on the alien captain with his sidearm, 
    so make sure to explore the ship thoroughly.
    Blue and red pass cards
    They don't seem to have any meaning, and you can get multiples of each, 
    but I've noticed that you can only find them on ghouls (the feral ones, 
    not the talking ones).
    Ceramic dinner plate
    It doesn't sound like it, but this plate is very rare; I've only found 
    three so far. The only one I can remember the location of is the one 
    that must be stolen from Lucas Simms' house in Megaton. It has no other 
    use and doesn't look much different from a white plate but it's very 
    Door component
    Check The Tenderizer for location information. Note that before getting 
    the component you must fix the door (high repair skill required).
    Get the Contract Killer perk and kill a friendly human. You can get a 
    lot of them so it isn't exactly one-of-a-kind but it still seems like a 
    unique item to me.
    Experimental Rho ID
    Found at an Enclave camp (named Camp Rho) southwest of Canterbury 
    Commons and northwest of Vault 108. When held, it turns all the turrets 
    at this specific camp friendly.
    Get the Lawbringer perk and kill an enemy human. You can get a lot of 
    them so it isn't exactly one-of-a-kind but it still seems like a unique 
    item to me.
    Food sanitizer
    You will get this from Moira Brown if you complete the optional 
    challenge on the Super Duper Mart section. When held, it slightly 
    reduces the amount of rads the foods and drinks will give you and 
    slightly boosts the health recovery as well.
    Fresh food
    This includes apples, carrots, pears, and potatoes. You can find these 
    in the Science Lab in Rivet City. They must also be stolen.
    Geomapper module
    After completing Reilly's Rangers (Museum of History, revive Reilly to 
    trigger the quest), talk to Reilly about helping out the Rangers and 
    she'll give this to you. From this point forward, if you discover any 
    new places you can return to Reilly with the module for caps, and you 
    still keep the module.
    House items
    These include the Jukebox, My First Infirmary, My First Laboratory, 
    Nuka-Cola machine, and the Workbench. You can remove these items from 
    your inventory once you're inside your house. When dropped, they look 
    like holotapes for some reason.
    Ice-cold Nuka-Cola
    You can actually get as many of these as you like, but they're not your 
    usual Wasteland item so I consider it unique. You can get one at the 
    beginning of the Nuka-Cola Challenge, a few more in Sierra's Nuka-Cola 
    fridge (must be stolen), and your Nuka-Cola machine for your house 
    starts out with 8 of them. After purchasing the machine, though, you can 
    put any Nuka-Cola in it and turn it into an ice cold one.
    Lincoln items
    These include the Action Abe Action Figure, Civil War Draft Poster, 
    Lincoln antique coin collection, John Wilkes Booth wanted poster, 
    Lincoln's diary, and Lincoln's voice, all of which can be found at the 
    Museum of History. You can give all of these to Abraham Washington in 
    Rivet City for caps but I don't recommend it.
    Lucky 8-ball
    You can get this from Timebomb after completing the Big Trouble in Big 
    Town quest. When added to your inventory a message pops up on the top 
    left corner of the screen mentioning "good luck." There's no visual sign 
    of luck enhancement but my assumption is that it boosts all the non-stat 
    related aspects of your Luck.
    Magna Carta
    You can find this in the National Archives during the Stealing 
    Independence quest. I didn't include the Bill of Rights because it's 
    considered a quest item and, unfortunately, can't be removed. The Magna 
    Carta, for some reason, isn't and can be removed. It can be given to 
    Abraham Washington for caps but I don't recommend doing so.
    There are three special mentats: berry, grape, and orange. You can find 
    these in the National Archives (Stealing Independence quest). Look for 
    the terminal that will ask you 8 questions about the history of the 
    United States near the entrance. Once you answer them all correctly you 
    get a prize voucher. Bring that over to the other terminal to pick your 
    mentats. You can also find 5 more prize vouchers in a safe, giving you 
    access to two of each kind. None of them are any different from the 
    regular mentats...except the flavor, apparently.
    Mississippi Quantum Pie
    First, you must complete The Nuka-Cola Challenge quest (Girdershade). 
    Then ask Sierra about possible recipes including Quantums and she'll 
    mention it. Bring her all of the ingredients and she'll make you one.
    Surprisingly this isn't a normal item found throughout the Wasteland; 
    I've only found one so far and for some reason it has no value. You can 
    find it while following the main quest (if you have the Broken Steel 
    add-on) and passing through Georgetown North and East on a table 
    outside. If you don't have the add-on just look for a table at either 
    Georgetown North or East.
    There are actually two different kinds of toasters in the Wasteland: a 
    clean one and a dirty one. The only clean one I've found is in vault 
    101...therefore making it possible to miss. Do you remember the room 
    where you had your 10th birthday? While either escaping (Escape! quest) 
    or returning (Trouble on the Homefront quest) look for this room. It'll 
    be on the floor around where Andy the robot was standing when he cut 
    your cake (behind the counter). 
    You can get this from Murphy (you'll run into him during the Those! 
    quest) once you bring him enough sugar bombs. It isn't much different 
    from regular jet and isn't worth it if you're getting it for it's 
    Wasteland Survival Guide
    You can get a free one for talking to Moira Brown about it after 
    completing the quest. This item isn't one of a kind, though; you can 
    occasionally run into wastelanders that talk to you about the book, and 
    when you kill one they have it on them. I'm not sure how many there are 
    in the game but I'm up to three.
    Yew's bear charm
    It's a special teddy bear that you can get from Sapling Yew at the 
    Oasis. After completing the main quest, talk to her and, if you pass the 
    speech challenge, she'll give it to you. It gives you a permanent 10-
    point increase to speech when obtained.

    If you have any questions, comments, something to add to the guide, or 
    if you noticed a spoiler I missed, you can email me at 
    henrylittle@comcast.net and my Xbox Live gamertag is orangejuice75. 
    Also, if you have any questions about other aspects of the game feel 
    free to try them out on me as well. I would also like to mention that, 
    if you're interested, I started a file where I kept literally every 
    single item I've run into and stored it in my Megaton house, and if 
    you're curious about how many of a certain item there are in the 
    Wasteland (for example, I currently have 1,675 tin cans and 1,037 bent 
    ones) feel free to ask. I have also been keeping track of all the places 
    I've been to so I can show you the list as well.
