Fallout: New Vegas: Beware of Glitches
Fallout: New Vegas is a great game that offers an exciting post-apocalyptic adventure. However, players should be aware of several game glitches that could cause them to lose their game progress. These issues are specifically associated with the Xbox 360 version of the game, as of November 28, 2010. Although a patch may be released to fix the glitches, it’s important to be aware of them to avoid losing your progress.
Listed below are some of the glitches that players should be aware of and some tips to help them avoid losing their game progress.
One critical glitch to be aware of is the missing items bug. This glitch affects most storage areas in the game, making them unsafe for storing items. Items stored in these locations may disappear, as the game clears the cache to preserve memory. Items in containers may either be preset or randomized, and they do not respawn after being removed. Vending machines are the only exception, as they restock occasionally. Safe storage areas, where items will not clear out, are scarce. The Mojave drop boxes are a trustworthy option for temporary storage. However, the safe in the first room on the left in the Novac hotel is 100% safe, and items stored there will not be lost. Players should avoid using the Lucky 38 presidential suite, as it is an unreliable storage option, and the workbenches are known to be unsafe.
The area disconfiguration glitch may cause players, enemies, or items to fall through the earth or get stuck in the environment. This glitch is more likely to occur in mountainous areas, and smaller enemies are more prone to falling through the earth.
Lucky 38 Hellhole
The Lucky 38 presidential suite is known for several glitches. Players should avoid using it, if possible, and always double save outside of it. One of the glitches associated with the Lucky 38 vaults is that killing turrets may make Mister House’s robots attack you on site, and this could mess up the faction. Players may also get stuck in areas of the Lucky 38 and may not be able to proceed. The error is triggered by dialog and is fixed by talking to a character and trying the dialog again. However, some situations are impossible to get out of, and players may have to start over.
In some situations, the loading screen may freeze, and players could lose their entire save, even after loading backup saves. This glitch is unpredictable, and players should save their progress often.
Quests Tied Together
Some quests are tied together, and players may only be able to complete one of them. Players should work through the quests slowly to complete both of them.
Fallout: New Vegas is an exciting game, but it comes with many glitches. Players should be aware of these issues to avoid losing their game progress. Keeping multiple saves and avoiding the use of unreliable storage areas may help prevent players from losing their game progress.
