Is there any way of getting unlimited caps without requiring pickpocketing other than the SMG glitch? A glitch involving pickpocketing is Casdin's glitch of pickpocketing sold items and re-selling them to him. However, my Sneak is only 54, and all items given to him have been reported to be REALLY HARD to steal.

I really want to see all the house themes, buy all upgrades, and keep the game easy. Yes, that makes me cheap, but hey, can't help it. --Extremofire 22:40, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

My tip is to not buy or repair that much, save money. Also, I'm like a drug dealer, I save all my chems and alcohol and then sell them for max profit. If you're hardcore and don't use Stimpaks you can get them from Casdin and then sell them. Other than that, if you're on the PC you can use player.Additem f (number of caps) --RockandRhyme 22:51, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Sell ammo you wont use and sell smokes, pre war money and if you have the room guns.--OfficerBlue 08:46, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

And jsut something to note: 1 gun at 70% repair is worth more then 2 guns at 35%, so it's better to go for quality then quantity when selling (plus you can carry more) --DragonJTSLeave me a message 11:32, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

When doing Casdin, only trade scrap metal. Trade him an even number, around 50 or 60 is a good number. Save and keep pickpocketing him, reload until you are successful. trade all scrap metal back to him EXCEPT 2. Save again and pickpocket him again only get caught this time. try to steal a Laser Rifle or something. If you stole 60 and traded back all but 2, he will take them back even though he already has them and no scrap metal will show in your inventory, but -58 will always be there permanently. You will know it worked if you talk to him again to trade scrap metal and he accepts. Go to Megaton and trade unlimited Scrap for EXP and caps. You can get to level 30 FAST doing this.Statesofeuphoria 03:50, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Try this glitch:

  • Go to a merchant
  • Buy a piece of armor or a weapon that the merchant has 2 of (I usualy use combat armor)
  • Sell it back to the merchant
  • Buy it again and it should be at 100% CND
  • Keep selling and buying it. (you will be buying it at low CND and selling it at 100%)

Note: I have made over 15000 caps from this glitch and free repairs

SMG glitch is quite useful for one thing...... Ammo. Use that as you're new currency. Onipix 02:11, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

I've found a decent glitch. It earns you 250 caps a pop so you can build up relatively quickly. What you do is: When you meet Benny at the Strip, DON't GIVE him a difinite answer. Tell Swank you have to kill Benny and he will have Benny go to his room. When Benny is there, talk to him. At this point don't demand the chip but also do not agree to help him. Instead pick other options until you can choose "Goodbye". He will say then give you 250 chips. Talk to him again and say "goodbye" - another 250 caps. Lather, Rinse and repeat as often as you like.

Note that if you leave the room after talking to him, he will disappear and so will your money-making chances.
