Fallout: New Vegas — A Good Start

Posted by JungleBoot on November 3, 2010

This is a no B.S. post.  It will be short and to the point.  If you are trying to figure out how to acquire good armor and a good weapon right away, read this.  Make your way to Camp Golf and head into the resort house.  Look right once inside.  There is a room filled with cots where the NCR rangers sleep.  There is  a combat helmet and combat armor sitting on a shelf.  You will have to steal both.  Simply pick them up and walk into another room or out of sight of the rangers, drop the item, and pick it up.  It makes stealing much easier.

Now, the hard part.  You can acquire an Assault Rifle and Marksman Rifle ealry in the game from the Nellis Communications Array.  Two boomers are dead inside the building.  The rifles are sitting next to them.  What makes this hard is getting past the shelling.  Follow the path indicated in the image below.

The idea is to hug the ridge line until you reach the fence.  If you get hung up along the way, you might not make it.   Attemp to open the gate and respond to the sentry’s challenge.  Speak with Mother Pearl and immediately speak with the female NPC that took you to her.  She will give you the quest that provides the key to enter the array.

You can also pick up combat armor off of two dead bodies at Durable Dunn’s Sacked Caravan.

Good luck.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen
    in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon.

    i think a good set of armor to start with is go to the canyon wreckage (DLC) and kill all the robots in the hopeville silo and before you leave the silo take a left and look in one of the lockers to find a US Combat Armor and if im not mistaken it has a DT of 20? and leave and you will be set for a while until it wears down but with 20 DT is an amazing start and it weighs like 25.00 LBS
