The super mutants tend to use hunting rifles, yet how do they fit their fat kielbasa fingers through the trigger guard? There's no way I tell you.

This game is ruined for me now.

They bite the trigger guard off like a kit kat bar. A real fan would know this lore.

Don't get me started on logical and lore flaws in Fallout 3.

For one thing, the construction of Vault 87 was nearing completion before FEV research even began, and FEV research was sealed under the highest clearance and quarantined at Mariposa Airforce Base. Vault-Tec was a huge corrupt corporation with all sorts of government ties, but FEV was the single most classified project going on in the pre-war government.

So there shouldn't have been super mutants on the east coast to begin with.

Also, why is Jet everywhere?

Jet's everywhere because there needs to be ONE bright spot in that dystopian future.

But the formula for synthesizing Jet required a genius who had access to facilities capable of processing several tons of poo from specially contaminated Brahmin, and the guy who came up with the formula isn't around anymore.

So why is it darn near everywhere?

So... how many years after the bombs fell does Fallout take place? I always thought ammo should be impossible to find in such an event.

"A" Flaw? as in only 1?

I think 150-200 years. Not sure on that count. haven't played the game in a year or so. Before Skyrim came out....

The first game takes place roughly 120 years after the war starts. Fallout 3 is another 120 years after that.

Fallout 3 begins in 2277, the bombs fell on October 23rd, 2077. So nearly 200 years pass between the Great War and the birth of the Lone Wanderer.

I always imagined that the relative scarcity of ammo is reflected in the fact that you go through an unopened ammo box in an abandoned military base and you only find 6 bullets you can use. There are plenty more rounds in the box, it's just that the rest of them have degraded to the point that they are unusable. This also explains how the scrounger perk works.

Ok thanks. And thanks Stifmeister. So after that much time, I would think bullets would be almost gone. Thats always bugged me about the game. Also, Nuka Cola would be flat.

That makes complete sense. You nerds put way to much thought into these games ;)

And I learned that ghosts are not affected by radiation, which is a scary thought. With all those ghouls running around, I don't need their frightening cousins flying around as well.

I thought that Nuka Cola (not just Quantum) used isotopes to keep it from going flat until it's half life which would be like thousands of years or something.

Also, Fallout 3 sucks....

Because it ends. :(

How does it end? You can play infinitely.

Well, Im embarrassed now. Cant believe I didnt know that. The name makes more sense now. Can someone explain where the Super Mutants and Super Mutant Behemoths came from?

You can replay infinitely. Once you hit the level cap of 30, everything in the world would most likely be done. Sure, you can wander around, but there isn't anything to keep me entertained unless I'm doing missions or have some point to wandering around.

Actually, the ingredients of Nuka Cola are " carbonated water, caramel color, aspartame, phosphoric acid, potassium benzoate (to protect taste), natural flavors, citric acid, and caffeine."

All the Nuka Cola you find in the Wasteland is pretty much warm and flat, and it's irradiated due to the fallout (heh) from the Great War. It's just that it's sweet, caffeinated, and a relatively large amount of it was preserved. You have to realize that almost everything that people eat in the Wasteland is kinda terrible.

Isnt that the ingrediants of Coca Cola?

You only get indefinite play if you have one of the DLC items. For anyone who just has the base version of the game, the level cap is 20 and the game ends.
