So it’s 1:45 a.m and my boyfriend calls me to tell me how he’s found a way to get loads of Tesla Armor and caps in Fallout 3. Mind you, I’m very far from where he is in the game but he never stops trying to give me tips to help me progress (love him to death for that). So here is his information, as he posted on GameSpot:
If you fast travel to Alexandria Arms (around the corner from the Citadel) and go to your right you’ll see three Enclave soldiers fighting two Raiders in a bombed out building. Simply kill the soldiers but let the raiders live. It’s quite easy because the raiders are on the top floor of the building and once you enter, the soldiers will immediately engage you. The Raiders will not come downstairs. These Enclave soldiers always wear Tesla Armor and always carry plasma rifles. Once you loot everything, fast travel to your home and sleep for three days. Now fast travel back to Alexandria Arms. The Enclave have returned because the Raiders are still alive. Rinse and repeat. The plasma rifles can be sold for anywhere between 150 and 300 caps depending on condition. You can sell the Tesla as well if that’s not your thing, but I think it looks badass. Enjoy!
