BugsEdit

  • pcIcon pc ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 Eventually, with this patch installed, the game crashes to desktop when the courier goes to Camp McCarran in the external area or reaches the doors to the main building.
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 Similar to the above bug, the game will lock up whenever the player enters the cell area containing the 188 Trading Post. Fast traveling to the 188 avoids this bug, and the player is free to leave and re-enter the area on foot until the cell is "refreshed" from too much distance or entering an interior. Removing the Title Update 5 is proven to fix this issue but with obvious and unwanted detriments.
