Fallout: New Vegas Cheats & Cheat Codes

Fallout: New Vegas is arguably the most beloved entry in the Fallout franchise. It is considered by many to be the best game that the post-apocalyptic RPG series has to offer. It was released in 2010 for PlayStation 3, Windows, and Xbox 360, and it retains a passionate following to this day, even after the release of more recent games like Fallout 4 and Fallout 76. Despite its advanced age, the game’s gripping storyline and sizable modding community have kept it going strong.

Fallout: New Vegas is an open-world RPG set in a post-apocalyptic version of the Mojave Desert. The main storyline of the game revolves around a brewing conflict between the New California Republic and Caesar’s Legion, a pair of massive armies preparing to wage war for control of Hoover Dam. New Vegas, a thriving city ruled by the enigmatic Mr. House, is caught in the middle of the struggle. Numerous smaller factions also vie for power and survival on the fringes of this conflict. This includes criminal gangs like the Fiends and Powder Gangers and tribes like the Boomers.

As the Courier, you must navigate the conflict and choose what role you wish to play in the coming war. You can side with any faction you want, good or evil. Fallout: New Vegas boasts deep RPG mechanics that let you build your character however you choose, both in and out of combat. The game’s skill system impacts not only your weapon proficiencies in combat but the outcome of various quests and dialogue encounters.

Fallout: New Vegas presents a massive open world brimming with memorable NPCs. Here are some of the major players in the brewing conflict threatening to overwhelm the Mojave.

  • The Courier: The player character’s fateful delivery to the New Vegas strip is violently interrupted, drawing them into a conflict much bigger than they are. You can completely customize your Courier’s appearance and abilities, and sculpt their personality through dialogue as you play.
  • Benny: Benny is the scheming head of a New Vegas casino who shoots the Courier in the head at the start of the game and steals their package. As the Courier hunts him across the Mojave they learn about his role in the growing conflict and his ambitious plan for the future of the region. When it finally comes time to confront him, the Courier can choose to take their revenge or work with him to mold New Vegas in their image.
  • Mr. House: The reclusive ruler of New Vegas arranged the job that brought the Courier face-to-face with Benny. Mr. House wields untold influence over the region from the shadowy heart of the Lucky 38 casino, and the Courier must decide whether to aid him in imposing his will over the Mojave or bring an end to his centuries-long master plan.
  • Caesar: This megalomaniacal dictator leads Caesar’s Legion, a grim empire with a sprawling army fueled by slave labor and modeled after the military might of Ancient Rome. After a failed attempt to take over the Hoover Dam and conquer the Mojave Wasteland, Caesar marshals his power and gears up for another attempt. The Courier can work to halt the expansion of this war machine, or they can choose to join it.

Fallout: New Vegas Titles In The Series

Despite the venerable age of the franchise, Fallout doesn’t have too many entries to its name, and it’s changed hands a few times over the years. Interplay developed the first entry, but as of Fallout 3, Bethesda runs the show. New Vegas, however, was outsourced to Obsidian Entertainment. Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 5 will begin development after the launch of The Elder Scrolls 6, but there is no confirmed date for either game yet.

Fallout: New Vegas Cheat Code FAQs

The town of Goodsprings in Fallout: New Vegas
The town of Goodsprings in Fallout: New Vegas is one of many settlements in Fallout: New Vegas that brings life to the wasteland.

What is the Max Level in Fallout: New Vegas?

Fallout: New Vegas has a maximum player level of 30, but each of the four main DLC expansions increases that cap by 5, for a total of 50. If you don’t want your level to get too high, you can take a starting trait called Logan’s Loophole, which was added with the Old World Blues expansion. This resets the level cap at 30, and in exchange makes in-game chems last twice as long and removes the risk of addiction to chems entirely.

What is the code for Godzilla in Fallout: New Vegas?

Gojira is an unused fire gecko variant that can be found in the code of the game. He is three times the size of a normal fire gecko and has a special attack called Gojira Flame that will instantly obliterate any other creature in Fallout: New Vegas. While Gojira was created by a developer as a joke, he is still present in the code of the game, and you can summon him using console commands. The command player.placeleveledactoratme 11324a will summon Gojira.

Is it possible to max out all skills in Fallout: New Vegas?

In the base game, it is not possible to max out all of your skills without the use of console commands. With the increased level cap that comes with the four DLC expansions, however, it is possible, but it requires very careful allocation of earned skill points, perks, and items found in the Wasteland. Console commands can make this process a lot easier, but you should know that maxing out all skills will trivialize much of the challenge of the game’s quests.
