Once I saw three legionnaires patrolling below the Dead Wind Cavern, stuck in each other's bodies like a siamese triplet train. They were in the exact same phase when it came to walking and drinking, each putting the bottle to his mouth in the exact same nanosecond. I split them up and saw that they were indeed different individuals.
Yesterday while I was killing some giant radscorpions between the Tribal Village and Victor's Shack, it suddenly said "Quest failed: Oh My Papa" even though I had only killed radscorpions ;D 11:07, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

It's always fun to stand above the fighting pit in The Thorn, and walk into people so that they fall down into the pit and get hurt. This won't turn them hostile. But make sure that you don't want to fight again in the pit, because if you do, the people will be there and you'll most likely hit them and make them hostile. Also, a couple of times, Veronica's facial expression has frozen in a macabre, semi-open mouth that looks downright horrifying. And on two occasions, I think in the Tribal village, a corpse called "Burned body" has been animated and walked towards me for a short duration before the game engine finally caught up with it and placed it lying on the ground as it should be. Also quite a horrifying experience. 21:42, July 5, 2012 (UTC) Tomas

Went down the stairs to the BoS bunker when all of a sudden ED-E:s battle hymn fills the air as Ramos is coming at me, gauss gun blazing. Before realizing what I could possibly have done to piss him off, Veronica jumps into the room, superman punches his head clean off, stands down and cheerfully utters: "Looking sharp, Ramos."

The funniest thing for me had to be saving...... and then blasting Rex with my missile launcher. I haven't seen any dog in that game fly so far! incredibly funny!Pimpboy3billion 06:04, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

I fast traveled to the Scavenger Platform, got the attention of the Lakelurks on it and dove off, swimming down to the bottom of Lake Mead, (wearing the Rebreather), beyond the range of the sonic attacks coming from the Lakelurks that stayed on the platform. 3 Lakelurks followed me, but, being under water didn't attack. I stood on the bottom facing them from a couple of feet away. They just stood there, gnashing their teeth. DarthOrc 05:40, June 13, 2011 (UTC)DarthOrc

Planting 50 (yes,50) bricks of C4 around Boone and Rex as they were stood in front of the Novac dinosaur. Pulled out my detonator, and well, you can tell what I did next. A few in-game days later, I found Boone's eyeball in front of Camp McCarran... --Wiseman of the Wastes 08:58, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

screwing with t-t-ten of s-s-s-sp-sp-spades,funnny as hell when he's all "thats brahmin shit cut th-th-that out" "w-w-what out"?

Reverse Pickpocketing power armor and metal armor on all the kings and then doing the quest when the NCR troops attack them.

Mine would have to be a Deathclaw completely eliminating half of Camp Forlorn hope, how it got there escapes me, it was really hilarious.Stealthology 23:34, March 15, 2011 (UTC)Stealthology

Oh god, so many...

Mind my childishness, but at the Legion Raid Camp, a weird glitch caused a Recruit Decanus to sit in a position on his knees with his hands wrapped in front of him(which is what the powder ganger hostages are supposed to be doing). A powder ganger was standing directly in front of him... and the Decanus' face was in the powder gangers groin... :)

Another would probably be when I was in Freeside. I threw dynamite at a Freeside Thug's feet, and it didn't damage him, but blasted him 50 or so feet in the air. He then plummeted to his death! >:D --TheConvictsSUCK 23:47, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

Did exactly the same thing to Legate Lanius using a Mini Nuke at the end. Priceless. Wunengzi 13:22, June 14, 2011 (UTC)

shooting Mr house with a BB gun to find his body explode lol --Mgriller 04:10, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

Had to be killing Mr House and Ceasar with a shovel >:D --Boone123 04:13, March 18, 2011 (UTC)

Decapitating the whole head off a legionary with a shot from my laser rifle, causing the body to backflip and his foot to punt his head off into the distance. never did find it.... The Captain (radio) 08:15, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

Has to be punching Legate Lanius and him flying 500 feet up and teleporting back to the ground dying. Tips994 22:18, March 21, 2011 (UTC)

I did the Run Goodsprings, Run quest, but never killed chyanne. Well, i went to go raid black mountain, and all of the sudden I see the dog running towards me while killing super mutants. xD -- Fooglezub 03:40, March 22, 2011 (UTC)

I thought the 3 old ladies attacking you with rolling pins in freeside was pretty damned funny. I also got a good laugh when I told Yes Man to ignore the Brotherhood. And when I played a female, and seduced Benny with Black Widow when I first confronted him. Try that some time, it'll save you a lot of trouble. 06:22, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

Oh certainly the time I single-handedly (with the help of the Meltdown perk) defeated the Van Graffs. All you need is a little patience, a little faith. OR a stealth boy, the meltdown perk, a high energy weapons skill and a Gauss Rifle! The Victorious Phoenix

There's other ways of killing them than that, I killed them the same way I kill everything else, with my brush gun. ReapTheChaos 05:26, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

I broke Raul out early in the game and ran until we could escape from Tabitha with fast travel. A while later, I was at Helios One looking for solar arrays, when she appears looking for blood in that fenced in area! I was hoping to repair Rhonda once I raised my stats enough, so I ran off to continue my adventure. One day, I was minding my own business on the Strip, when the crazy bitch comes running after me, so I finally killed her at the steps of the Lucky 38, where her corpse remained face-down in pavement for a long time. Didn't know she was a stalker... 19:01, March 29, 2011 (UTC)Kaz

The funniest moment was when me and Veronica had Displacer Gloves and ran around Camp McCarran and punched fiends 10 meters into the air while American Swing played on the radio. Rootmars 20:29, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

Probably a skull in FA3 glitching so hard it was vibrating and shaking...also setting up my own assassination missions on the strop is fun using all my stealthboys Ycs183 and sniping the secuitrons while everyone goes wtf? XD

Mine? Probably hanging outside Hoover Dam, wondering what to do. So I saved, pulled out my rangefinder, and randomly fired. So much blood and bodies. So much gore. So much laughter. - Omega-Ginger

Testing the game physics to the max at the top of the helios tower, with 50 lots of c4, a detonator and rex. I'm pretty sure that dogmeat would have survived the blast :( -- 20:06, April 6, 2011 (UTC)

@, no he wouldn't. Had to leave dogmeat wherever he was just to keep my ol' doggie alive in Fallout 3... I dont want to see him die! :( 5t3v0 10:56, April 7, 2011 (UTC)

Oh.. Tabitha...!! On a side note, does anyone else think that the wackywasteland perk wasnt really that..wacky..?

Agreed! Not worth wasting a trait on. ReapTheChaos 05:26, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

I was standing on the strip, I set the controller down for a min, and I go to pick it up, I look up, and a Brahmin runs right by me, through the door onto the last section of the strip, I was dumbfounded for a moment. In the same game session, i went to Helios one, and old lady Gibson was hanging out with her dogs, in the area with all the solar panels, and the NCR tents. I thought the Old Ladies where pretty waked out which you get only with Wild Wasteland perk. Other than that, not really all that wacky.Pappy002 08:41, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

That Brahmin is actually a scripted event that goes along with them dancing in the fountain. The first time you visit the monorail station on the strip, you should see two NCR having a convo where one will say "I can handle them dancing in the fountain and running brahmin down the street, but I draw the line at this." referring to graffiti on the wall thats he's being told to remove. ReapTheChaos 05:26, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

on my early game I was being pursued by a Deathclaw, by goodsprings, i noticed and decided to stupidly run into the Prospecter Saloon lol, he killed everyone in the saloon and then got stuck in the section of the saloon were the computer is, i just slowly got the hell out, i go outside, easy pete says hello and walked into the bar not realising whats in there XD. Levi Lauson 12:13, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Trying to get the Ranger Sequoia, Hanlon busted me. He stood up real pissed like and all i heard was HEY! from Veronica and a Power Fist smacks him on the back of the head whereupon he falls poleaxed to the ground. Laughed until i cried. CourierOne 19:18, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

Throwing TNT at deathclaws and running them off LOL

this is kinda hard to describe but for some reason this dead freeside thug's body was wildly flying around in this crazy glitch...kinda made him look like some sort of black hole nivlac96 6:43 April 18, 2011

Shooting a fat man at a legion assasian group, 3 fell right on top of the other. I guess its true that the legion like men way more than wemen. LOL Zion115 20:42, April 21, 2011 (UTC)

Shooting bark scorpions at Hidden Valley, then panning out to third person and realizing my hands are the size of a deathclaws. Hell of a glitch. Another time would be at Caesar's camp fighting the praetorians with my hands and noticing that all my fingers are broken and twisted. :) Changsta4u 7:51, April 25, 2011

I finished Ghost town gun fight or whatever the quest is called and left goodsprings for a while. I came back much later and all the dead powdergangers were still there so I decided to do a little goodspring-cleaning. I dragged all the bodies into a pile and laid down a mess of C-4 and other odd explosives and took cover behind a rusted truck. I think the town looks much better with arms and legs hanging off every roof in town. Another time I was trying to create a power-level build so I was trying to get to New Vegas Clinic to get the intelligence implant before I reached level 3. I was trying to find a safe path over the mountains and ended up being chased by a deathclaw through primm pass. I hid inside a nearby prospector shack only I didn't know deathclaws could enter buildings. I nearly peed when he popped in and tore me apart. But by far the funniest thing I ever did was going into vault 22 and using meltdown and a laser rifle to fry the mantis babies that pop out of the egg casings in the caves. The resultant explosion bogged down my 360 and left me picking bugs out of my teeth for about a minute and a half. I've also had a pack of ghoul revers chase me all the way from the nuclear test site to the mojave outpost. Zac hemker 21:41, June 2, 2011 (UTC)

Today, actually a few minutes ago, I was playing through on a new character, as I was walking to Primm I came across a tumbleweed, I decided to shoot it with my shotgun. Never seen a tumbleweed fly so far, so fast, try it sometime with a 20 gauge. Dlaxrcc123 22:46, June 3, 2011 (UTC)

Killed a death claw by shooting a tumbleweed with the riot shotgun. Flew at him SOOO fast my xbox lagged only to have him loose both arms and legs and head as his body went launching away connected to the tumbleweed. Also once I splattered a viper to Gibs only to have her reform as a weird skinless meat monster made up of all her parts put back into their positions

Me being traped in a jacknifed 18 wheller near Quarry Junctio with 4 Death Claws taking glitches swipes at me through the walls

Nothing in Fallout 3 can compare to some of the wackiness I've recorded from TES IV: Oblivion. Unnatural acrobatics of mounted characters and, in one case, the spontaneous levitation/rotation of a dead body; a weapon enchantment that has a side effect of launching the dead body of the victim great distances (search Youtube for grummite launcher); and more. Though I did manage to kill a nest of deathclaws with a varmint rifle. Fully modded, sneaking, AP rounds, and in a place where they couldn't reach, and it took a lot of ammo, I think I ran out and had to use something other than AP. --Kris User Hola 01:15, June 6, 2011 (UTC)

I was at the Legion Raid Camp, and upon killing the last remaining Legion Recruit with a lead pipe, his body fell inside the rock his was standing on. Unable to loot it, I went on my way, only to find his headless standing body over the hill from the camp, with arms spread out wide like he was ready for take off. I stopped and looked at his body, when it became see through. Beware the Headless Airplane Ghost.

Me and my bro were goofing around Novac and ended up pushing Boone out of the dinosaurs mouth. When we found his body his rifle was stuck throuh his chest we laghed our arses off ToestheUnwholy 01:44, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

I was wandering through Freeside, just by the courier box, when I noticed everybody running away from me into the blue bus doors, "what are they running from?", I thought to myself, so I turn around and right there, filling up the whole screen is Grotface yelling "HELP ME, HELP ME!", as a Freeside Thug is chasing him , I genuinely jumped at first, then burst into fits of giggles as I watched him running from the thug!.Razlo 01:57, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

Going to deathclaw promontory with 10 Luck, a modded Laser Rifle, Joshua Graham's armor (+3 crits), a bunch of other perks that made crits more likely/more damaging, and the Meltdown perk.... and then shooting the first deathclaw I saw at the head of a valley. The whole frigging valley went up, with deathclaws bursting one after another in a spectacular fireworks display. That'll teach them to try to mob me. Wunengzi 17:34, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

Shot a Glowing One with This Machine at the nuclear test site. This caused him to fly straight up slowly with his arms crossed as he was ascending to heaven or something. Strangest glitch I have seen so far in any fallout game.

When we were fighting some thugs in freeside with Lily she went up behind some poor fool and screamed "GRANDMA'S GOT A PRESENT FOR YOU!" He turned around and she chopped his head off and it landed at the other thugs feet. She roared and he said "Oh please don't kill me!" I laughed my ass off while she was chasing his ass through freeside. Don't rob people kids, or Grandma will give you a present. 16:39, June 16, 2011 (UTC)

Mine would be having 100 unarmed and a ballistic fist with arcade gannon on high places, man that was fun seeing him fall saying "look at him fly!" then my brother says that's not flying that's falling with style!User:Denis517 June 16 2011

Watching a party of 4 very drunk NCR female troopers frolic in the waterfountain outside the UltraLuxe while Secritrons ask them politely but ineffectually, to get out of the fountain. Some odd things happen everynow and then on the strip it seems. Captain Taipan 01:07, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

when the game was about to end at hoover dam and and oliver was going to talk to me i shot veronica with the anti material rifle and crippled her head and so when it done the whole after story thing sometimes veronica would but in saying things like oh,my head and other random things she says when shes hurt.

Another funny thing that happened recent was when I was in the RepConn Headquarters. I was picking open a locked safe with my Lockpicking at 100. I opened the safe, took most of the contents, then turned to go. My targeting hud slide over the space between the door and the case on the safe, and I could pick the safe open again. Moving around, I found I apparently had two safes set within one safe, both locked and with different contents.--DarkCheshire 00:34, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

mine would be fast traveling from The Strip north gate to Novac only to find that somehow Canyon Runner and Decanus Severus had traveled from Cottonwood Cove to Novac, killed a traveling merchant and the rest of his caravan, then started their trek south back to Cottonwood telling everyone in Novac they passed on the way out "Ave" or "True to Caesar" to which the people of Novac replied with a friendly hello. Evidently I was the only person who saw these people gunned down in the street. Or when the nightkin from Brooke's Tumbelweed Ranch appeared on The Strip, killed 2 securitrons and then asked me if i wanted to buy a wind brahmin..--Beforetakeoff 04:35, June 25, 2011 (UTC)

Having the living anatomy perk, going into VATS to shoot a coyote, then having the coyote shoot up into the sky randomly, camera following it, and watching as the living anatomy perk displayed -35,000 hit points for the coyote when it hit the ground

I was just minding my own business blowing up everyone in Cottonwood Cove with Mercy(unique grenade machine gun) when I decided to switch to Love and Hate(unique spiked knuckles) to finish the last guy off when after changing to Love and Hate I randomly jumped around 100 feet in the air before falling to my death and having the privilege of doing it all again minus the randomly springing up in the air.

Just minding my own buisness about to do a raid on that viper camp south of novac when suddenly im attacked by legion assassins the vipers saw this and came to my aid for some reason mean while as the two factions have a gun battle a covert ops team of golden geckos snuck in the back and wiped both factions out ( lucky for me im an animal friend :D )

I was bored and hanging around Freeside, so I took out my ten C4 explosives, placed them around the vagrant (who sat there and stared at me blankly), went to a safe distance, and blew him up. He went flying up into the sky so far that I couldn't se him, and a few minutes later his body fell down near Grecks. Sadistic, I know, but slightly amusing. I didn't expect him to go so high. Yes Man default 12:00, July 9, 2011 (UTC)

I was in Freeside and saw the Giant Rat was back for a second time with a pretty far lead on the kids on one of the longer streets. I hit him with a VATS headshot from the Marskman Combine and the first child ran up and dropped to his knees then glitched and just flew down the street like a mack truck trying to make a sudden stop. He passed a few buildings, ended up in an intersection and pretended to eat for a second and then walked back casually. --Pyoobez 23:24, July 15, 2011 (UTC)

Another one. Decided to wipe everyone out in the Monte Carlo Suites. I heard someone talking and started looking around. Finally the radar picked him up and after a few more minutes of rounding corners with my Marskman Carbine, I spotted him... trapped behind the easy locked door I opened. I ended up shooting him in the left arm until he died. Poor guy couldn't even shoot back. --Pyoobez 02:28, July 17, 2011 (UTC)

Fast traveled to the gun runners, for some reason one of the guards was immediately hostel to me. I pulled out my sniper rifle, it was what I had equipped at the time, and shot him in VATS. For some odd reason he flew up in the air 150 feet or better, so high I almost lost site of him, then landed on the roof of the gun runners building. I was in VATS so I got to see it all in slow-mo. After he landed all you could see was his feet sticking over the edge. ReapTheChaos 19:26, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

Just realized this post is a year old. WTF Energy X? Editing a link in someone else's post? Trying to get your edit count up or something? ReapTheChaos 19:33, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

Nah, there was a link that fills a certain list named "Wanted pages". It is filled with links which lead to nowhere (creation of article) and this one had it. It is Deathclaw promontory, not [[Deathclaw promonotory]]. Energy X 19:40, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

Mine is the time i freed the family in cottonwood cove, but told them to leave with bomb coller activated, well as soon as they got of the pen they all blew

sky high

Sneaking, using a stealth boy, to get a point blank upwards shot with the Anti-Material Rifle on a Deathclaw. Poor SOB flew super high up, and, best part, landed on another deathclaw, killing it too. Avg Man (talk) 03:37, August 11, 2012 (UTC)

Don't know if this is all that whacky, but... fast traveled to Ranger Station Charlie once while I was still on peaceful terms with both NCR and Legion. Wandered left toward the big empty space and saw 3 troopers gunning down 2 legion recruits and a veteran. Normally in most instances when NCR patrols spot(or get spotted by) Legion patrols, the Legion wins, but the veteran got stuck on a rock, and the recruits were already easy prey. the troopers headed off behind me and I heard more gun fire ahead, so I ran over and saw 4 legionnaires(1 recruit, 1 decanus and 2 veteran) gunning down 3 more troopers with hardly a scratch on them after they killed the troopers. 3 of the legionnaires went to sleep at a nearby campfire while one of the veterans went toward RSC. I ran ahead and saw the troopers decided to stop patrolling and set up camp in the (suppose to be abandoned) ranger outpost. The veteran got close before turning around and walking back to the campfire where the legionnaires were. It was like he spied on the troopers, doing recon. It was like watching realistic skirmishes that would happen between NCR and Legion instead of seeing generic gun battles with two patrols crossing paths. On a side note, half of these posts seem to be about "I hit/shot/blew up an enemy and saw it fly into the sky". 08:08, August 20, 2012 (UTC)
