The remnants of the fallen world haunts every inch of the ruins as the battle for control of the city overshadows its inhabitants.

The Brotherhood of Steel, Super Mutants, Slavers, and other menaces lurk in every corner of the Wasteland and eradicate anyone or anything that stands in their way. Cheats for "Fallout 3" increase the odds of survival in the ravaged terrain as the quest to salvage society from desolation and desperation.
- Earn Infinite Caps. Go to any shop in the city and make sure you have a high priced item like a weapon that is not 100% condition as well as available in the vendor's inventory. Sell your item to the vendor then buy back the cheapest of the two identical items and repeat the process until the item is more expensive then when you originally sold it to the vendor. The difference in caps will add to your total until the vendor runs out of caps.
