You’ll need to have a speech skill level of 50 or higher before attempting this trick. Approach Old Ben who sits by a fire near the King headquarters in Freeside. Persuade him to escort you to the local bar. For beating the Speech Challenge you’ll get 61 XP. Follow him back to the bar and let him sit down. Speak to him again and you can do the Speech Challenge infinitely for unlimited XP.
This trick requires 30 Speech skill or the Confirmed Bachelor perk and you must be friendly with NCR. Go to HELIOS One and the woman should automatically talk to you. Once she allows you access to HELIOS One, you should be able to start the “That Lucky Old Sun” mission. Proceed with the mission and talk to Fantastic and Ignacio Rivas. While talking to Rivas, make sure you get him to reveal that he is a Follower of the Apocalypse by using Speech or Confirmed Bachelor and agree with his ideals about peace or say you are neutral. Complete the mission regularly until you get to the point where you activate the Mainframe Terminal. Configure the Power Grid to “5 Full Region (Emergency Output Level).” Finish the mission by hitting the Reflector Control Panel outside on top of the tower. Go back to Ignacio Rivas, and choose the “I overloaded the plant. No one …” option. That option will never disappear. Keep selecting that option to get 350 XP, three Stimpacks, and two Doctor’s Bags.
Go to Vault 11 and you will get a small quest to find out what happened there. Once you get the overseer’s pass code and enter it into her computer you will be led to the “sacrificial chamber.” Use a stealthboy to get past everyone and when the walls on the left open go into the door and access the computer mainframe. You will be given three options, “Override” and “Download” for two conversations. Click on the second download and you get 500 XP. Simply click it again to get another 500 XP. You can do this repeatedly to max out your character.
You will need a Barter skill of 35 or higher for this. In the southeast corner of the map you will find Cottonwood Cove near the river you will meet a man named Aurelius of Phoenix. Speak to him and choose to barter with his camp for ammo and supplies. Clicking on this nets you 35 XP but it does not stop conversation and can be continuously clicked for rapid XP gain. Even if you have Vilified yourself with The Legion this exploit still works.
Unlimited Caps and Items:
Find any shop-based trader and sell him any stuff in your inventory that you don’t need and complete the transaction. This will boost the amount of money he has.
Find something in your inventory that you have two of or something that you and the shop keeper both have. Sell an item or two to the trader so he has two of them.
Check that the two identical items are of different values once they are in the trader’s inventory. The bigger the difference in value, the better.
Now buy the cheaper of the two identical items and complete the transaction, but do not leave the trade session. Look for the item in your inventory. The item should have gone up in value dramatically and should be 100% repaired. If it isn’t 100% repaired for whatever reason, sell the item back to him and repeat the previous steps trying a different item if necessary.
Now you will be able to sell the same item for a high price and buy it back at a low price until you have drained his money completely. If you want, you can hold onto the item as it will be fully repaired, simply keep it on the final round which will leave him with a small amount of money. Either sell the item back to him again once he is out of money, or if you are keeping it, sell him something else of high value and he will owe you that amount. The transaction price will go dim and remain at whatever amount of money he has left.
Search through the trader’s inventory and find stuff you need. Stimpaks, ammo, miscellaneous item, weapons and armor are all fair game. Eventually, the transaction price will light up again and you may owe him a few caps depending on how much of his stuff you added to the deal. Complete the transaction.
If you wait three days he will have new stock and around 650 caps. The longer you wait, the more robust his inventory will become and the more caps he’ll have for you to take when you’re ready to do this all over again.
In Freeside, go to the Old Mormon Fort. Seek out Julie Farkes inside the Fort. Choose the dialogue option to help them get medical supplies. Click through the dialogue options to hear one that tells you that she just got a shipment of magazines.
After all this you will need to choose the option “I have some medical supplies to drop off.” There are three options; choose the Rad-Away as this is the easiest one of the three to find. You only need to leave one thing if you don’t care about fame. Every time you give them something you will gain more fame. After you give them the supplies choose the option “I’d like to buy medical supplies.” There are a few aid supplies here that you can get if you want although they will not regenerate. In the supply list you can find the Magazines. Buy up what you want and then exit. After that, choose the option to give med supplies again. This time you need not give them anything just choose the “Never mind” option. Go back to “Buy medical supplies” and you can repeat the process for more magazines. You can do it infinitely as long as you choose to drop off supplies first.
