General informationEdit

Every quest that appears in your Pip-Boy grants an achievement (on the Xbox 360 and PC) or a trophy (on the PlayStation 3) upon completion in base game only. Unmarked quests do not provide achievements/trophies. Side quests in Point Lookout and Broken Steel do not provide achievements/trophies either.

Most of the quests in Fallout 3 either involve or can be completed with a combat situation (e.g. killing Vance and The Family in Blood Ties).

There are 59 quests (main, side and repeatable) in the base game. The 5 add-ons provide for a further 35, which makes the total 94 quests.

Main questsEdit

Main quests with names in italics can be skipped through a speech check. This is the only way to skip Galaxy News Radio (other than through unintentional glitches), though Rescue from Paradise can also be skipped through use of Child at Heart to convince MacCready to let the player into Little Lamplight. Both quests can then be completed as a side quest at any time.

All quests up to Tranquility Lane can be skipped by finding and entering Vault 112. Doing so may cause some bugs and glitches. Another way is to glitch your way into the Citadel and find the Vault Locations Computer in the A ring. Doing so will skip you to the Picking Up the Trail quest and may cause a very large number of glitches.
