Can You Beat Fallout New Vegas Without Taking Any Damage? (in text form)

My hunt for the man in a checkered suit is on. After a few weapon mods caught my eye in the General Store, I spoke Sunny Smiles to get my hands on a Varmint Rifle. Then I killed her and her stupid dog with it and bought Silencer and Extended Mags mods from Chet before ending his life. The townsfolk in Goodsprings were very nice to me. To reward them for their generosity, I killed them all and let the Powder Gangers take control. Then I killed the Powder Gangers, too. My next stop was Primm, for no other reason than Johnson Nash being the next closest vendor after Chet’s tragic accident.

I found myself inside the Bison Steve Hotel. The Powder Gangters inside provided me with my first real challenge. It’s kinda like Call of Duty where he who sees first kills first. Their guns are drawn and they’re facing me, giving them a step up in the fight. After several deaths, I was able to walk in and instantly aim at the bad guy’s head, allowing me to kill him and hide behind a corner. Several deaths later, I was on the 2nd floor, where I had even more fun dying over and over again. Good thing I’m persistent.

The Gangters were cleared out, Beagle was rescued, and Primm was in need of a new sheriff. NCR were my first suggestion. But, with my Speech skill laughably low, I had to drag myself to Mojave Outpost to get approval from someone higher up the ranks. Then something strange happened. After I killed Ranger Ghost so I could steal her clothes, one of my dialogue choices with Major Knight was to tell him that I’d helped out around the Outpost. Maybe Ranger Ghost was a total not nice person or something. Regardless, I brought the law back to Primm, and my work there was done.

Next was Nipton. Boxcars, the last standing member of the Powder Gremlins was granted the sweet release of death. Vulpes Inculta also needed to die. Something deep within me said it must be. So that’s what happened. Using my Sneak skill and silenced Varmint Rifle, I eliminated Vulpes and his group of Legion soldiers. I found myself full of items that I didn’t want to drop. Novac seemed like the perfect place to sell them. I took the road southeast of Nipton and killed a whole family of Bighorners along the way for some quick and easy experience. And then I got carried away and got myself in a sticky situation involving a lot of very dangerous ghouls. It took a considerable amount of time and ammo, but I was able to kill enough of them to accomplish my goal. I really wanted to know what was in that shack. The Hunting Shotgun inside was nice, but the real reward was discovering what happened when I took too much radiation damage. Once it crosses into the first Radiation Sickness category, you take damage, which kills the me. Or I tripped over a rock while standing still. I could honestly be either.

Fresh out of that irradiated hellhole, I encountered a few traveling merchants to whom I could sell a few of my wares. That voice came back and I was determined to kill them all in the most beautiful of fashions. Picking them off at a distance would just not do. I put myself between all 4 of them, targeted their skulls in VATS, and fired away.

    The helmets from factions don't have any faction tag, so anyone can wear them. So boone can wear a legion helmet, just like higher level NCR do.
